EASY St. Patrick's Day Nail Art {Tutorial}


Good morning! Today I have 2 St. Patrick's Day nail art posts to show you and help your nails get ready! First up is this simple clovers with gold chunky glitters nail  design. I think gold and green combo really pull out the look, yet it's still very easy to achieve. I then painted my thumb and pinky with mint green polish just so the overall look is in the same color family.

NEW Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47


Saw this in my inbox yesterday! I was so so so so happy that Josie Maran finally came out with a new and improved Argan Daily Moisturizer with SPF 47!!! The original one with SPF 40 was my favorite face sunscreen over the past 2 years or so. And it got discontinued - I couldn't find it anywhere at Sephora or Josie Maran's website couple months ago when I was in the need of a new bottle. Now I need to figure out how to quickly use up my newly bought Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV-Protector with SPF 42 (it's actually a pretty good sunscreen, but the sunscreen scent stays all day which is kinda annoying to me...)  

Have you tried Josie Maran's Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 yet? I can't wait to try it!!!

Thanks for reading!! ♥♥

NEW Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop (Review and Swatch)






Another beautiful lipgloss that's perfect for spring/summer - newly formulated and packaged Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in the shade Pink Pop. A gorgeous blue-based medium pink creme gloss with no shimmers.  The color in the tube might look intimidating and bright, but it's actually a very wearable pink once it's applied. 

The Packaging is sleek and pretty, and looks high-end. It comes with a clear round tube with a doe foot applicator. The texture was thinner compared to the original old square-tube super lustrous lipgloss or NYX's Mega Shine lip gloss, yet very lightweight and comfortable to wear on the lips. One thing I really liked was that it does not contain any scent/fragrance or taste to the gloss (at least I can't detect any).  

The pigmentation is semi-opaque and buildable. It can be worn by its own or as a layering gloss on top of other lip colors. I liked that it brighten up my face and gives me a more awake look. Very natural and flattering without being too over the top.

The staying power is somewhat weak as the formulation/texture is not as sticky as MAC lip glosses. However, it lasts a good 1-1.5 hours without eating and drinking which I think is quite acceptable :D 

Have you tried Revlon's NEW Super Lustrous lipglosses? What's your favorites? What's your favorite lip shades for spring/summer? let me know!! and as always, thanks for reading ♥♥

Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational - Pin Up Peach {Review and Swatch}





Since spring is (almost) here, I thought it's a good time to write something spring-y. In today's post, I would like to do a mini review and swatch on a Maybelline lippie that I really like lately. 

Maybelline Color Whisper - Pin Up Peach is a warm coral/peachy pink with very fine shimmers that's not at all noticeable once applied on the lips. It's a very beautiful MLBB (aka: my lips but better) color.  The wear is very comfortable, light and moisturizing even without the use of lip balm underneath. It's like a hybrid of lip balm + lipstick - my lips always feel very soft and dewy when using this lippie.

The color payoff/pigmentation is good (it's a natural looking lip shade, but definitely not sheer) and is buildable. The texture is very creamy, but not too soft which makes the application effortlessly!    

Packaging is simple and cute. It's pretty similar to Revlon's lip butter packaging. Also, the lippie inside matches the cap outside which makes life so much easier if you have a bigger lipstick collection.

The only downside is probably the staying power. The wear time is short if you eat or drink. Otherwise, 1~1.5 hours is pretty promising. And since the application is so easy, I don't mind the re-application. 

Price is very affordable and can be found in most drugstores and online.

Have you tried any lippies from Maybelline Color Whisper? What shades do you have? What do you think? and How do you feel? What's your favorite lipstick shade(s) for spring? let me know!! :)
