Nail Polish: Revlon’s Minted

I first saw this nail polish in Beyonce’s , “Why don’t you love me” video, and I was determined to find this color. I know Beyonce’s nail lacquer brand is Chanel, but I wanted to find a shoddy alternative. I came across Revlon’s Minted nail polish in Walgreens, and I managed to get this color and another color for under $4, with the special at Walgreens. I really like this color, and after applying two coats and a topcoat, it last about a week without chipping.


What do you think about this color?

Nars Eyeshadows: California & Silent Night

Hey Dolls! I’ve been expanding my makeup collection with Nars products this year. My most recent purchase from Nars, are these eyeshadows. Sephora had these eyeshadows online for $7 each *add to  cart, & checkout *, I couldn’t resist! We know a single eyeshadow from Nars is priced at $23…..ouch! I was told, the eyeshadows are limited edition, so once their gone, THEIR GONE.  Nars eyeshadows are SUPER pigmented, and last ALL day *no creasing *. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about these products. I’m in love! 

Top-California
Bottom-Silent Night



What are your favorite Nars eyeshadows?

Nail Polish: O.P.I. Lincoln Park After Dark

Happy Wednesday Dolls! Christmas is almost here, and I still have a few things to get. Aside from the list of gifts I have to get, I wanted to show you dolls the newest nail color I’ve been wearing by OPI. I received this nail polish as a gift from a friend last month, and decided to put it to use. This nail polish looks burgundy in the bottle, but appears black when applied on the nails. I applied two coats on my nails. I wore this color for two days, and decided to take it off. It just looks too dark. It’s alright, but just not my cup of tea.

What do you dolls think?

My Birthday Week!

Hey Dolls! This past Thursday was my birthday, and I had an amazing time. My sister treated me to shopping and dinner *lots of bags…*. We ended the night dancing the night away at Draft with some friends. I wanted to challenge my inner Lisa Raye, who happens to live in ALL THINGS WHITE lol. I decided to keep my makeup neutral with a pop of color on the lips. Nars Red lizard is my favorite red lipstick, I love it!


On Saturday, the celebration continued with lots of food, fun festivities with my family, and a beautiful cake made by a good friend of mine. I wanted to thank everyone for celebrating with me, and all the birthday wishes!!!!





Bday dinner w/ friends & sis

Fun w/ fam.

MAC’s Miss Piggy Pink Eyeshadow Review

I was suppose to do this review, prior to doing a makeup look -__- Oh well……..I purchased this eyeshadow online, when MAC finally rectified their technical issues with the site. I never go bonkers over the release of new MAC collections. I happen to love the Muppets, so that explains the reason for purchasing this product. This is pretty much a basic, blue-based, frost-finished pink eyeshadow. Nothing spectacular! When applied to my lid, the color appears lilac. I plan on using this eyeshadow on my lips and cheeks. Although, the packaging is BORING, I won’t be de-poting this eyeshadow. If you want to see the makeup look using this eyeshadow, the link is below 😉
