N.Y.C New York Color nail polish

Of course I'm studying for my finals!! That's my response to my hubby who just asked me if I was studying. He doesn't have to know I'm doing a quick blog update ;) I just thought I'd share a quick swatch of what I'm wearing on my nails. Here's NYC's one minute nail polish in Fifth Avenue. I love how they named the polishes after places in NY!! It's a nice bronzy orange color with a hint of red shimmers. Its very affordable at the drugstore only costing $1.99 USD. 

Ive always disliked my short nails. So I have been considering the Kiss 100 pack nails. I like the thought of faking perfectly shaped nails. I like this color of nail polish on my fingertips for fall and on my toes for summer. 

This nail polish does dry fast and lasts on me about 5 days with some tip wear. Mind you I am a mother and a student which requires a lot of hands on work and typing. I have to admit though, that I do not do dishes...I know I hubby actually likes to do it...he finds it therapeutic. Hey I cant complain!

I did purchase two other colors a dark blue called Chinatown and a purple called Manhattan which I will post about when I wear them. Oh, how nice it was to take a break from finals but back to studying I go!!

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
