Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 13 ~ 06 April 2013

Hi everyone!

Time for the Nail Polish Lottery Club.

This week’s number is 281. As I don’t have 281 unused nail polishes, I used number 2+8+1=11 on my list.

Number 11 turned out to be Revlon Brilliant Strength in 010 Dazzle. When I saw that, I couldn’t have been more thrilled, as I bought the nail polish last week. However, the result disappoints.

Revlon Brilliant Strength in Dazzle is very sheer. After 3 coats, you can still see the nail line, so not very pretty on my short nails.

See in this week’s video:

And this week, I’ll show you only one photo of my not so perfect nails:

Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 12 ~ 31 March 2013

Hi everyone!

First of all Happy Easter to those of you celebrating! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your families.

Now, it is time for the Nail Polish Lottery Club. This week’s NPL club number was 97. As I don’t have 97 polishes, I could have used 9+7=16. But this week I’m cheating a bit and using 1+6=7, which what do you know? Number 7 on my list is this new Revlon Moon Candy I just bought.

Revlon Moon Candy was released in the UK just this week. As I always see them on Youtube, I had no idea that we don’t have the Moon Candies here in the UK.

Today, I’m wearing Revlon Moon Candy in Galactic.

The base, as usual is OPI Nail Envy. I followed with two coats of the dark color, 1 top coat, and 1 coat of the glittery stuff. Whatever you do, do not apply as me! Ideally you should use: 1 coat base, 1 coat dark color, 1 coat glittery stuff and you will have beautiful manicure, trust me.

But enough with the chit chat, here’s this weeks video:

And enjoy the photos:

Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 11 ~ 22 March 2013

Hi everyone!

I am back online, finally the broadband is installed! Not only that, but it is fibre optic broadband, which should make my life easier when it comes to uploading videos.

This week’s NPL club number was 41. The current number of polishes on my list is 26, so I used 4+1=5.

Number 5 on my list is Revlon Ruby, but I could swear I did wear this before. Or, at least, I did wear the color next to it on the list: Revlon Vixen. As I couldn’t really remember, I decided to wear them both, and use Judi’s signature half and half manicure.

So here it is, my week 11 NPL Club video, hope you enjoy it:

As you can see, the two nail polishes look very similar in the bottle, but are very different on the nail. As they are both Revlon, the quality was really good, and they were easy to apply.

All in all, I give 5 out 5 to both colors.

Top 5 Most Used – January 2013

Hi everyone!

January is almost over, I don’t know if I should be happy or sad. One thing is for sure: time does fly!

Make up helped a lot to brighten my beginning of the year anxiety. I did not buy anything but did a few swaps. Getting a fun package in the mail is always going to make my day.

As far as make up application I kept it to basic, as usual. Mornings are never good for me!

My top 5 most used products for January are:

  • Real Techniques stippling brush: so far I can say I was expecting something better, but I still have to play with this new toy.
  • Clinique Redness Solutions loose powder: my current foundation is more on the dewy side, so I need lots of powder. Why do I use a dewy foundation when I don’t have dry skin? Can’t say right now, but I promise to reveal later.
  • Milani baked blush in Luminoso: this blush is pure genius! I can’t believe I did not use Milani before. Milani please start trading in the UK too!
  • Bourjois Effect 3D lipgloss: if you have access to Bourjois go and check out their lipglosses. They are the best high street / drugstore lipgloss on the market.
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip balm in 01 Honey: this product has so many reviews it doesn’t need a description from me. I just need to say one thing – Revlon please rename it! The long name is too much for me!

How was your January? Did you get the January dreaded blues?

L’Oreal Infailible Eyeshadow Wear Test / Mail / NOTD

If you watch my videos, you probably heard many times how much I like my L’Oreal Infailible eyeshadow, especially the permanent kakhi one.

It is just so convenient to wear for work!

So here is a little video with me testing the eyeshadow wear for 11 hours. (In a typical work day I leave the house at 8am and get back at 7pm).

The second part of the video shows you a nice little package I received from my friend Judi. Please make sure you visit her video channel and blog. She is the ONE nail expert to watch!

One of the things Judi sent is Revlon After Party, so why not have my first NOTD on the blog?

What do you think? I am in love with this color!


Top 5 Most Used – July 2012

Hi everyone!

I know I have been away from the blog for a long time.
At the moment I will not be able to post proper posts or reviews on the blog, but I will be adding my Youtube videos.
Let’s start with my most used items in July. They are all great products, hope you enjoy!


All about lips day 5: Revlon Super Lustrous

Name and shade:
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in pink in the afternoon (creme finish number 415)

Price and availability:
Around £7.50 at Boots, Superdrug etc. I got it on 3 for 2 offer at Superdrug.

Colour description:
Natural pink.

Coverage:
Opaque.

Long lasting?
No.

What I like about it?
I am madly in love with this colour. I’m not sure what it is about it, I just love it. I carry this lipstick in my make up bag all the time. It is a very good colour for a neutral look, with some pink to liven it up.

The packaging is very nice as well. It is the standard round tube, clear on top so that you can see the lipstick inside, and compact enough for carrying around. Plus the “Revlon” gold band looks nice.

What I don’t like about it?
It is a bit drying to the lips, so it’s better to wear it over lip balm. Also the finish is almost matte, so many times I top it up with clear gloss.
