{Review} LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter


So I recently got a new pot of my favorite cuticle butter from LUSH. I thought it's a good time to share my thoughts here on the blog. I may not have the most beautiful cuticles/nails, but this Lemony Flutter cuticle butter makes them their best possible. I should have named it my obsession instead of review. This cuticle butter seriously is da BEST, people! This is it! It's something I can't live without. 


It looks like butter, and feels like butter! This cuticle cream is very thick, the texture is soft and super easy to work with and the smell....omg so good! It's a million times better than Burt's Bees' Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream in my opinion. (>>> I know a lot of people love it, but it just never work for my stubborn cuticles XD)

{Review + Swatch} Maybelline Color Whisper - Rose of Attraction




Today's post is a mini review of Maybelline's Color Whisper lipstick in the shade Rose of AttractionRose of Attraction is a warm and beautiful rosy pink with shimmers (shimmers are quite subtle). It looks very natural, lightweight and comfortable on the lips. A great MLBB (my lips but better) type of shade! The color payoff/pigmentation is more on the sheer side, but is buildable. The formula is pretty moisturizing, lipstick-wise. Staying power I would say around 1.5-2 hours, not too bad for a moisturizing lippie.

Have you tried any lipsticks from this line? What's your favorite shade(s)?
Thanks for reading!!

{Review + Swatches} NARS At First Sight Eye & Cheek Palette



I have been using this At First Sight Eye & Cheek palette from NARS "non-stop" for the past months. I thought it's about time to write my thoughts on this beauty.  The main reasons I love this so much are because this palette is so compact, about the size of iPhone 5S, only a little bigger, and you got pretty much everything you need for eye & cheek (and brow). These eyeshadow and cheek colors are so versatile, so perfect for everyday, but can also be built up for more intense/dramatic looks.

{Manicure Monday} Nicole by OPI - At Least I Pink So






I am starting a new series called Manicure Monday on the blog. Excited ^∇^!! And to kick off my first Mani Monday post, I have 2 of my current faves on the nails to show you. They are Nicole by OPI - At Least I Pink So and Sally Hansen Xtreme wear - Celeb City (as my accent nail).   

At Least I Pink So is a very pretty baby pink/bubblegum cream. The consistency is a bit on the running side, not too bad as it evens out the surface on the nail. The opacity is a bit on the sheer side - definitely a 3-coater. Drying time is great, too. I used this pink in my recent Piggy Nail Art (tutorial here, blog post here).  

I had Celeb City on my ring finger as an accent nail. Celeb City is a beautiful metallic silver. One of my very favorites! It dries super super fast and is very opaque. This is 2 coats.  I used this in 4th of July Nails and Hello Kitty Inspired Cute Bow Nails.

And I finished off with essie's good to go rapid dry + shine top coat. Love this when I'm just doing swatches or solid colors like this. (Seche Vite is still my favorite if I do nail art^^)      

What do you guys think of this shade? and the combo of pink + silver? 

Thanks for reading! Have a great evening <3
