Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Hey guys! This week has been very busy. I’m looking forward to my upcoming trip that’s our honeymoon technically. I scheduled it to coincide with our first anniversary and I’m really looking forward to it! Today I have the last of the 10 new shades Finger Paints released for 2015 as part of their core line. Here’s Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry.

Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Still Life Strawberry is a magenta (or even fuchsia) version of Sterling Sculpture. I tend to think fuchsia is brighter and magenta leans more towards red so it’s darker. It’s a glitter shade that’s made up of magenta hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a clear base. It’s a very simple shade, but you can definitely jazz up a regular mani with this easily. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Zoya Easter Basket Promo

Still need a small Easter treat for someone you know? I just saw this very cute Easter Basket promo in my email from Zoya.

The boxes it will come in are so cute! It’s very Spring-y and Easter-y! The colors they used in this ad suits Spring and Easter as well. 5 minis for $20 with the boxes to match isn’t a bad price at all.

Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden

The weather has warmed up quite a bit recently, but news of a cold front keeps my optimism of warmer weather at bay. This is good ‘ol Oklahoma after all. The weather can change day-to-day with 100 degrees difference in temperature. Yes, that has happened before. I imagine how the poor trees felt with that much of a swing in temperature! I’m finishing up featuring the new shades for 2015 from Finger Paints. Here’s Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden.

This shade is a chameleon to me. Looking at the bottle, you see this pretty blue and possibly green glitter shade. Swipe it on by itself and its true nature is revealed — a glitter shade made up of blue, green and purple iridescent hex glitters in several different sizes suspended in a slightly tinted purple base. I think this would look best over darker colored shades like blue, black and purple. It will reflect more of what you see in the bottle with those kind of shades for the base color. Formula is thicker than all of the other shades released at the same time. Shown is one with no top coat.

ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got this month’s offerings from ipsy a few days ago and I’m happy to say things are looking up! I had a great run with ipsy for a long time and then the stuff I got from the last few bags just didn’t really do it for me. The bags itself were more misses than hits lately too although I tried to stay positive about them all. This month’s a whole different story! Here’s what I got in my ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag.

ipsy March 2015 Glam Bag

While I ‘m not a huge fan of floral prints, I absolutely adore this month’s bag! The colors are so pretty and soothing. It’s refreshing and I think I’m going to pass this cute number along to one of my nieces. The colors in this just reminds me of her. I’ve never heard of the brand Chella so I was curious as to what the product could be. I thought it was an eye shadow pencil initially, but it’s actually a highlighter. I don’t highlight at all, so I’ll save this to pass it on to someone who does. Next item is from a brand I am very familiar with. I’ve never tried anything from Sexy Hair before until I got one of my favorite hair care items to date (Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner) in my ipsy January 2014 Glam Bag. With that said, I’ve been looking for another leave-in hair treatment and the Sexy Hair Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Creme Oil fits the bill. The NYX Butter Lipstick shade I got is called Little Susie. It’s a very pretty shade that I actually like — I’m keeping this one. I heard the formula is quite lovely, so I’m looking forward to providing a full review here soon. I also got the MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow this month and like most eye shadows I get from my past ipsy glam bags….I’ll be passing this one to someone else who can use it. The last item I got is the dr. brandt® pores no more anti-aging mattifying lotion. This item intrigues me and I’ll be trying it out starting tomorrow. I don’t wear any makeup at all usually (just moisturize and go!) and I’d like to see if this actually works. I have pretty big pores that I detest, but I like the ease of not wearing much makeup at all (aka moisturizer only).

Now that this bag got me all excited about ipsy again, I can’t wait for the next month’s bag! :)

Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture

Hey guys! This week has been very busy. I was pulled into several different things at work throughout the week and that’s never fun. I’m hoping to be able to catch up with my backlog for the blog this weekend. I’ve also been on a stationary kick at Target’s Dollar Spot section. I’m a sucker for cute notepads, sticky notes and cards among other things. Anyway, today’s post is on one of the 10 new shades from Finger Paints for 2015. Here’s Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture.

Finger Paints Sterling Sculpture

Sterling Sculpture is a glitter shade that’s made up of silver hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a clear base. This shade is quite simple in terms of being a glitter shade really, but it makes a great glitter topper that way sometimes. Formula was good. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
