Coral and Peach Lippies

        Hey Guys, if you didn't know, I'm new to make-up, so my collection is slowly building up. Out of all the make-up products out there, the ones I buy the most are lip products. I think if I could only have one make-up product to wear, it would be a lippy product. *I'm not here to brag about how much stuff I own, cause I really don't, I just want to share and get advice from others :)* Right now I have seven lip products( 4 lip glosses, 2 lipsticks, and 1 lip cream) and some lip conditioners like Carmex. Since I don't really like dark or really bright/light colors on my lips, I usually go for the neutral lip. Because I'm naturally tanned (NC44) I buy peach or coral lippys because I think it complements my skin tone.

       So I have two peach lipsticks, MACs 'Shy Girl' and Wet N' Wilds 'Just Peachy'. 'Shygirl' is a creme sheen lipstick, which comes of as a peachy-nude color on my lips. And it also has some light shimmers on it to make it shine more and it smells like sweet marsh mellows(if you like the smell of sweets, you will definitely like it). And 'Just Peachy' is more of a bright peachy-coral, but I find that if you rub it in more it softens up the lips from looking to harsh on my lips. Its a matte finish and it doesn't really have a smell to it, but it comes on quite creamy, but dries up a little bit, but that's fine because I always add a clear gloss or my Carmex on top, so it wont be so dry.

         For my lip glosses MACs Tinted Lipglass in 'Nymphette' is more on the pink side but still has a peach color to it with small gold flecks and it smells just like'Shy Girl', but its more on the sticky side, so I don't wear it as much.

       Wet N' Wilds Mega Slicks Lipgloss in Berry Burst is not my favorite because its sticky and it smells really really bad, so I wouldn't buy it again. But the only thing good about it is the color payoff, which is more on the coral side. I don't recommend it, unless you just like the color.

       So my favorite lipgloss in this WHOLE collection is the Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Sunset Peach, because its not sticky, so its like a smooth feeling on your lips. And its smells like coconuts but not exactly like it. But the color payoff is sheer, but it has little gold and peach sparkles. I usually add this on top of 'Shy Girl". I think I'm going to buy more colors of this range. Also the dopher brush is awesome b/c it can bend back and forth to give you alot of product.

My Favorite Nail Polishes

 These are my favorite nail polishes that I love to wear during any time of the year. The one that I wear the most and best complaments my skin tone is China Glazes 'Re-Fresh Mint'. Its a nice pastel minty color that makes my skin color tanner, like for example my feet are pasty, but when I wear this color it darkens my feet.

   Icing 'Peach Cobbler' is a nice peachy neon orange color which does the exact same thing as the mint color, which its why its one of my favorites.

   Sinful Colors 'Lets Talk' is a rich purple color to wear with any outfit.

   Essies 'Lilacissm' is another pastel color that I like.
   Orlys 'Orange Punch' is a bright coral that is a color I hardly wear but I\its such a gorgeous color that I had
to put it up hear.

 And lastly I wanted to show you guys the topcoat I have been using for the past two weeks. Its called 'Sech Vite' which means 'quick dry' in French. And no lie it dries up in less than two minutes. It makes your nails super glossy. The only problem is that I find that it doesn't last really long except when I used China Glaze 'Re-Fresh Mint' it stayed on longer. If anyone knows how to make my nail polish last and stay on longer, can you please tell me? I'm desperate, lol!

                                  What are your favorite nail polishes?

Urban Decay After Glow Cheek Tint Review

Ok so as promised this is the review for the blush I got a month ago. The one that I got at Sephora was 'Bang' which I think fits the tint quite well. It was about $20, I know really expensive but its totally worth it because the color payoff is really good and you can also use it on your lips. I would rate this as a 10-10,  I totally want to get the pink and I hope they have a coral-peachy color.

Pros: Color pay off
         Multiple uses
         Lasts long
Cons: The smell is weird, wish their could have been a fruity smell
          The cost, should have been at least $15.

               Defiantly go get it! What creme blush are you wearing this summer?
