Nail Rock Glitter Polish in January's Birchbox

Nail Rock Nail Polish from Birchbox, Amrita Singh Ring

I received this nail polish in my January Birchbox. It is by the brand Nail Rock. Owning a ton of glitter nail polishes I was very intrigued by this little pot of red glitter.

Following the instructions, I applied two coats of the nail polish. Then while the polish is still wet, I dipped my nail into the glitter, pressing firmly, allowing the glitter to coat the entire nail. Nail Rock claims the nail should be dry within 15-20 minutes.
I have to admit, this process is a little messy no matter how careful you are. It did dry within 15 minutes but there is fallout. I thought that adding a topcoat would curb the fallout but the topcoat caused the glitter to look wet and gunky.

Nevertheless, it was an interesting experience. The nail polish on its own is a pretty color and the glitter in person is so sparkly and pretty!

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!
