Best $1.99 nail polish I've ever seen! Confetti "Moonstruck" (OPI METRO CHIC DUPE)




I'm really loving this nail polish. I bought it on a whim at 12am while doing some midnight shopping at CVS. I was looking at foundations at the sales women pointed me over the the nail polishes because she thought I should check them out. I have never heard of the brand Confetti before and honestly didn't have very high hopes for it seeing as it was only $1.99. I was wrong. This nail polish is everything I was hoping OPI's Metro Chic would be. I wasn't a fan of the Metro Chic... there was just something about it that was wrong on me. This color is VERY similar but a little more wearable with my skin tone. I like the finish better than I did with OPI's, it dried super fast, too... AND no streaks. I used two coats but I could get away just fine with only one. This is a really dark muddy gray/purple... it's lovely and the best part is it's only $1.99!

Sephora by OPI "Metro Chic"



Have you tried this brand before? Thoughts? If not... you must! I can only say good things about THIS color... not sure how the other colors wear {though they all looked quite pretty}.

Lippy Lovin' Lancome "Trendy Mauve"

I was at the mall a few days ago foundation shopping with my mom and I came across this lipstick by Lancome. To be honest I am not a huge fan of Lancome lipsticks because of the awful scent/taste. However, I do not really notice that with this particular lipstick and I am so thrilled because... I love it! I don't know how many times I've said something is the perfect "nude" but this one really is! :) It's called "Trendy Mauve". It's really smooth and creamy and lasts a decent amount of time. It has good pigmention for the color but without being overbearing. It's not too light and it's not too dark.... it's well perfect! I don't know if I'd call it a true "mauve" though.
For a little more shine I add Lorac "Elite" over it and the two create the more beautiful combo. I'd recommend this color to anyone and I would for sure buy it again.
I give it 5 stars! This lipstick is $22 which yes I know is a lot for a lipstick but it's cheaper than it's $29 Lancome sister {L'ABSOLU ROUGE}.

If you haven't tried this color yet... at least check it out. I think it's simply stunning!!!





Golden Globes 2011 Best and Worst!

Beautiful dresses, gorgeous hair, fab jewels, stunning make up, sexy shoes...and then you have the not so great. This is my take on the fashions at the Golden Globes 2010!:)
Angelina Jolie in Versace
Now, I'm not totally in love with the dress in general but the way SHE wears it, it looks like a million bucks. This dress would look terrible on me but she looks beyond stunning in it and the color on her is to die!


Emma Stone in Calvin Klein Collection
Emma looks like a 1970's California Barbie in this dress. This dress is so simple and understated yet the simplicity of it is perfection on her. This color is so beautiful and looks great with her new blonde locks. I personally think she was one of the most stunning last night.

Megan Fox
There is nothing that I don't love about this dress. I'd own this one and wear it {if I could}.
This dress is so feminine which is kinda an odd choice for MF. Though she IS one of the most beautiful women in the world {after Angelina, of course}she's not super "feminine". I think she's looking a little too thin, though. Her face is so skinny... I LIKE skinny but something is not looking right. But, back to the dress... it's perfection. 


Claire Danes in Calvin Klein Collection
This dress is very simple but sometimes simple is better. The cut and the color really look beautiful on her.

Sandra Bulock
I personally really like this dress. I would have done something different with her hair ie: no bangs. This dress is so gorg and I think the hair kind of distracts from the dress.



WORST:
Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander
Oh boy, what can I say? This dress really looks thrown together. Meaning a mans shirts with a piece of yellow fabric perhaps clipped together in the back. There is nothing flattering about this "dress". 

Michelle Williams
Michelle, Michelle, Michelle... what were you thinking? I can't remember who made this but I am thinking it was Versace? This dress is really outdated circa 1994 and a little too childish for my liking. Too many daisy's and the color is all wrong. :(


Julianne Moore in Lanvin
I'm just not digging the fabric... it looks a little wrinkly. I'm not really feeling the poofy sleeve either. 


Helena Bonham Carter
This is wrong on so many levels but this is kinda her thing. She likes to be different. If she's comfortable than that's great for her but I think it's very distasteful. Two different shoes? What?

Heidi Klum in Marc Jacobs
I'm not a fan of this dress. Too much going on and I don't really care for the bow. Sorry, Heidi. Wonder Michael Kors would say if someone made this on Project Runway??


Did you have a favorite? Who was your least favorite?

Annndd... I'm sick! :(

I've come down with a cold and I'm super bummed. I have so many reviews I want to do and some require video and pictures... and we all know how I am looking right now is not acceptable for that. Ha ha.

My head is fuzzy and my nose is sneezey. No make up and unbrushed hair... comfy jammies. Nice. :o/

I have a review coming up for a great Keratin Treatment... it washes out in ONE day... yes, one day. If you are familiar with Keratin treatments then you know that's a big deal because you usually can't wash your hair for 3 days!!

{my hair with the Keratin Treatment} <3 it


I got the new Sigma kit! I love it. I have tried all of these brushes before but I love this set! I personally think it's going to be amazing for traveling and storing them!


I also got some Luxy hair extensions! I cannot wait to show you guys these. They are so pretty and match my hair perfectly. I haven't worn them out yet because well... I haven't really gone anywhere but since my hair has gotten thinner they really have added some great volume to my hair!

If you haven't checked out the owners youtube channel... you MUST!!! They are so beautiful and as sweet as sweet can be!!! :)


So, I can't wait to get better so I can show you these amazing things I am totally loving!!! :)

Hope everyone is doing amazing and staying well!!!
