Rimmel London Keep Calm And.... Lip Balms Part 2

*Products Sent to Me for Review

Hey guys!

I am back today with some more of those lovely Rimmel Keep Calm balms to show you all.

Strangely I was sent another package from the people over at Coty and Rimmel London with three more of these cute balms. One I had was a duplicate from the last package, Rose Blush, so I gave it to my mom. The other two in the package, I have here today to show you all.

The first one that I have up to show you is called Keep Calm and Kiss in Pink Blush. This lip balm just gives off a hint of baby pink color on your lips. This is after five coats.

Next, this one is called Keep Calm and Party, in the color Violet Blush. This one gives off just a hint of purple on your lips. In real life it shows a bit more, the picture doesn't do it justice at all.

These two colors seemed to show up less on my lips than the last three, but I still really liked them a lot. They are very moisturizing and glossy!

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Loreal Paris Special Colors

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today with some more Loreal Paris polishes that I just recently picked up.

I recently went to TJMaxx and they got in a lot more nail polish. They had what had to be around 100 polishes to choose from.

I picked up five different polishes. Four were Loreal polishes, and one was an Eve London.

Since one of the Loreal polishes was a duplicate to swap away, I have the other three on my blog today to show you guys.

Here is a preview of the three lovelies, which I just noticed I put in the wrong order, but anyways.

The first one that I have up to show you guys is called The True Diamond. This one comes from their magic top coats line. It is a cloudy off white shimmer top coat. I did two coats over three coats of e.l.f. Bubble Gum Pink and then three coats by itself on my ring finger. Application was great.

Next up, this one is called Le Pastille. This one is a gray cream with black large, small, and micro glitters. I did three coats by itself. Application was great.

Last up, this one is the illusive Masked Affair. This is a grey-lavender holographic polish. I did three coats by itself. Application was great. This one has such a strong holo effect, it is fantastic.

If you guys have a TJMaxx in your area, you better go there now. At least in mine, they had a huge amount of Loreal polishes. My thinking is that they are phasing out of the polishes in the square bottle in stores and bringing in the double sided tube polishes in their displays instead.

At TJMaxx, these only cost me $1.99 each!

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Rimmel Keep Calm And.... Swatches and Review

*Products Received for Review

Hey guys!

I am back today with a non polish post, but a post you have seen a few times on my blog. 

I recently received some lovely items in the mail from the makers of Rimmel London. They sent me an email about some of their new products and asked if I wanted to try them, so I said of course.

What I have for you today is three lip balms that come from their Keep Calm And.... line. All of these balms are very sheer, so they only have either no color or very subtle color. I apologize in advance for the terrible swatch photos, still not sure how to take pics of my lips that aren't fuzzy I used my Iphone 5 which isn't the best, but it does let me see my lips before I take the pictures which I do like.

First up, this one is called Keep Calm and Rock, in Berry Blush. this is a subtle berry fuchsia sheer lip tint. It is very moisturizing. I did five coats to get as much color as I could.

Next up, this one is called Keep Calm and Play, in Rose Blush. This is a rosy red lip balm with super subtle color that is just barely there.

Last up, this one is called Keep Calm and Shop, in Clear. This is just a glossy lip balm that is moisturizing.

Pics are small to show the color the best and it is less fuzzy that way. As you can see it goes from some color to no color. If you like just a hint of color and a lot of moisturization, these are definitely for you! I like a little more bolder color, but these are great for when I don't want to look too fussy and don't want to stand out too much. 

You can find these in any store that has a Rimmel display as far as I know, but I have yet to see them in any stores near me. I believe these cost between $3 and $4.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Poishes for Swap!

Hey guys!

I am back today to let you guys know of my swap board, full of polishes that I no longer have interest in or received from someone and they just aren't my style.

These are just some of the lovely polishes that I have for swap. This lovely image and banner was created by my favorite polish buddy, Alicia, over at Leesha's Lacquers.

I have over 100 polishes up for swaps. 125 to be exact. I have a mix of indie polishes, mainstream, high end, and minis. Creams, holos, glitter toppers, and more are in my swap board.

This is my swap board right here:

If you see anything that you like from my board, just comment with your swap boards or a link to the polishes you have up for swap. I am up for anything except creams. I also will swap for non polish items like handbags, wallets, and other makeup.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and hopefully you guys see something you like and we can do a swap together.

Duochome Polish Comparison: Covergirl and Color Club

*Polishes My Own

Hey guys!

I am back today with a comparison post of two polishes that I recently acquired, Covergirl Emerald Blaze and Color Club Portfolio.

While these colors aren't the same, I wanted to kinda compare them in terms of how well the color shift comes out in the light.

The first one I have up to show you is Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Emerald Blaze. This is a green metallic polish with a redish-gold shift. I did two coats by itself. Application was great.

The shift isn't present in pictures, but it is there and it is pretty. In the picture, this just looks like a pretty metallic emerald polish, which I like either way.

Next, this one is Color Club's Portfolio. This is a metallic purple with an emerald shift. I did two coats by itself. Application was great.

In pictures and in the light, the green shift you see in the bottle turns into a mint blue shift, which I find super pretty. Green shift or blue shift, I really love this polish!

Both of these polishes are really pretty and belong in any polish lover's collection. In terms of their shift, Color Club wins because it really comes out in the light and in pictures. If that is what matters to you most here, then that is the one you need to pick up!

Covergirl polish goes for around $5-$6 each in drugstores, Walmart, Kmart, and other retailers. Color Club retails for around $8 in specialty stores such as Sally Beauty and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

That's all I have for you guys for now, I hope you all enjoyed my post. I will talk to you guys later, bye!
