Color Club Nail Lacquer in Blue-Ming

Just got done baking up some Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. Made the recipe that's on BenjiManTV. I love how when I'm done baking I smell like butter and sugar! haha Anyways I don't want to make this post about cookies. All I will say, is there good and will be up on Sugar-Coated Delights soon! ^_~

Okay on to my NOTD!

Color Club Nail Lacquer in Blue-Ming is a vibrant green-turquoise color which has a creme finish. It's very pigmented, so you only need about two coats of this polish. This color is super pretty and I love it! These types of green/blue colors were always my favorite. So I'm glad I received this in my July Birchbox 2012.

*If you noticed in the very first picture above, there's tiny bubbles on each finger nail. Well that's not from this gorgeous polish, it's from the top coat I used. I think I used Wet n Wild clear coat. Now that I think about it, it might have been a base coat, not a top coat. Guessing that's why the bubbles formed?*

I will be using this color my toes, with a Top Coat for sure! lol

Which top coat do you recommend?

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze

Happy to finally get my hands on this Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze. Every store I went to didn't have any in stock. But I didn't give up my search there was one left at Rite Aid. Yay! I'm glad I picked up this color. I wanna get some more when there's sales on these babies!

Maybelline Color Tattoo's are a cream eyeshadow that’s supposed to last up to 24-hour without creasing or fading. Now I don't know about you but who wants there makeup to last up to 24-hours? I did however put this cream shadow to the test! I find that is lasts me until I remove my makeup. It only crease on me once because I had my makeup on for way too long. But it wasn't as bad as Urban Decay Primer Potion. This really holds up on my oily lids, which I'm surprise. You also have to work with it, because it sets in. I had to work fast, so I can blend it out in the crease around.

This beautiful metallic bronze shade is prefect for summer. It's super pigmented. I have been using this Color Tattoo almost everyday. I apply with a flat brush and blend out the edges with a blender brush.

Here's a hand swatch.

I find that these Maybelline Color Tattoos are a bit tough to remove. What seems to work for me are Costco's Kirkland Makeup Wipes. They remove even water-proof mascara. Eye makeup removal works well too!

In the below picture I'm wearing Bad to the Bronze.

 I also have another Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe, review here.

I would love to know below what cream shadows you guys are loving?

Dior Nail Lacquer in Pink Graffiti

Natural light w/o flash
It's been a while since I last updated a NOTD! I'm finally getting back on track and they'll be more coming soon! But for today I have a very special nail lacquer that I won from Shop N' Chomp. If you love fashion, shopping and food check out her blog!

The color is in 667 Pink Graffiti. I love this color! It's a very vibrant, bright pink nail lacquer. Also this nail lacquer seems quite opaque. It took me about two coats to achieve this color. What I also love about this is the wide brush. It helps make application easy. It dries to a glossy finish. No top coat because I ran out of Seche Vite. :(

With flash
  From what I know this color is from the Anselm Reyle Collection, which is limited edition so might not be available for long.

These are the prizes I received. I was super happy to see all these cute extras. Strawberry Pocky is my fave! Thank you so much! ^_^

Birchbox: July

This month Birchbox has teamed up with Glamour to create this summer senses. See it, hear it, taste it, touch it, and smell it.

Let's see if my sensory goes into over drive. So far looking good!

Color Club Nail Lacquer in Blue-Ming. I'm loving that I get another nail polish! Also loving this color, great for summer! Very vibrant green-turquoise color, can't wait to paint my nails and toes with this polish!

Gloss Moderne High-Gloss Masque. Never tried out a hair masque before, so this will be my first. It states that it's vitamin-rich conditioning complex restores bounce and shine. Just what I needed too!

Harvey Prince Eau Flirt. Notes of fresh citrus, jasmine, lavender and pumpkin. Smells pretty good! Happy to receive another Harvey Prince fragrance.

Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion. Very pretty illumining lotion, which you can mix with your foundation or apply as a highlighter to cheeks and browbones. So gonna be adding this to my cheeks and browbones! ^_~

Suki Balncing Kit. Claims it's an all-in-one set calms and purifies troubled skin. I'm surprise there's a lot to this set, so can't wait to see what it can do for my troubled skin!


Larabar Uber Roasted Nut Roll. Looks good and can't wait to bite into it!

Earbuds How cute! Just what I needed! The only thing that sucks is the sound quality.

Over all I'm pretty happy with this box!

Also if you like sweets check out my other blog Sugar-Coated Delights!

Mini Haul!

So sorry I haven't been blogging lately. Just haven't had anything to blog about. When the weather gets hot I find myself not going online much. But have no fear I'm here to bring you a mini haul. 

Picked up three things from Rite Aid a few days ago. 

1. N.Y.C. High Definition Liquid Eyeliner
2. Oral-B Complete Toothbrush
3. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze

Ran out of my fave liquid eyeliner (L'oreal Lineur Intense) so thought I give the N.Y.C. one a try. It's a Felt Tip, so can't wait to use that! ($3.99)

Needed a new toothbrush (simple as that! I actually love the Oral-B line!

I was dying to give this Maybelline Color Tattoo a try for the longest! I seen this in so many blogs and I was jelly! lol (Wearing it today and I'm already loving it!) Most likely this will be my go-to cream shadow for this summer!

Well that's all for now! Look out for some more post coming soon!
