Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

My FAVORITE New Beauty Product!

20 Nov

I love BB creams and tinted moisturizers very much.  I’m a huge fan of Smash Box BB cream as well as Laura Mercer tinted moisturizer and recently I’ve been using Origins VitaZing moisturizer and I LOVE IT!  VitaZing is somewhat in a category of its own….like the products I previously mentioned, VitaZing is definitely a multi tasking moisturizer , it has SPF, anti oxidant rich mangosteen and a hint of color…….NOT weird orangey fake tan color either,  it just evens out my skin while adding a healthy glow.  I have medium/slightly deep colored skin and it gave me a glow!  It smells great and is fun to apply(comes out of the tube white with tiny brown specs and turns into a beautiful warm color as it’s rubbed into the skin) I cannot get enough of this stuff!  It’s great because I can wear it alone with or as a base for my makeup without it being cakey and with NO irritation!  It is much greater than I can even begin to explain…..please go to your local Origins and ask for a sample…..but before you do read the reviews they speak for themselves.  VitaZing is available at Origins $35 .  If you want a light moisturizer that evens out skin and is wearable everyday, this is your product!
