Essie: Good to Go

September 15, 2013

Okay so y'all know how much I love Seche Vite but when I found out there was something out even better, I was very curious. I finally ran out of my Seche Vite and was in need of some newness. So I said why not try out the Essie good to go as i heard it was amazing.

I freakin love this stuff it looks much more shinny. It dries faster and my nail polish last longer! I'm impressed! 

(Good to go) top coat contains fast acting drying agents to help set Nails in a flash. I mean flash as in super duper quick!!!  Your nail polish will dry with a protective high gloss, and brilliant shine finish!!!

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body Review & Swatches

September 13, 2013

Y'all know I love talking about newness! Urban Decay is on fire right now! 

Do you remember the Urban Decay Sparkling Lickable Body Powder? Well they did away with that and came out with a more classier version. Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body ($29) I absolutely love it honey!

It gives off light, sheer shimmer that illuminates like no other. I kinda wish this would have came out during the summer but oh well!  I give this product two well manicured thumbs up!!!

Fall Newness: OCC

September 01, 2013

Ok, Fresh faced beauties... Fall is approching and with that being said, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics puts modern cabaret performer Calpernia Addams as the face for moderncraft - their Fall 2013 Colour Collection inspired 1920s Berlin.  moderncraft will transport you back to the cabarets of the 1920s with a colour collection that echoes the aesthetic innovation and cultural liberation of Weimar Berlin with a distinctly contemporary execution in vibe and textures.   
Moderncraft unveiled on August 27 with six new Lip Tar™ shades and be the first Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics collection to launch with all three finishes: Original Matte, Metallic and Stained Gloss™.  As with all Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar™ they carry unprecedented amounts of pigment and have the longevity of a lipstick.  LIP TAR™: MATTE and LIP TAR™: METALLIC apply with the ease of a lip gloss and dry to a lipstick finish, while STAINED GLOSS™ possesses a long-lasting glossy finish, creating a ‘cellophane' glaze for lips.

Also launching with the moderncraft range are the Fall 2013 Nail Lacquers in six new shades. In addition to being 5-free, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquers are densely pigmented, quick-drying and super long lasting.
