I recently featured two new Butter London nail laquers in my most recent haul, and I wanted to share with you, a swatch of "Teddy Girl". 
Teddy Girl is a pale, light milky pink color.
I was first drawn to this polish, because of the color. I love pale pinks and I was super excited to try this one. The consistency of the polish is very thick. And the pigmentation is amazing, literally opaque in one coat.

My favorite thing about this polish is that it applied streak-free! I've tried similiar colors, such as Essie's Figi, and although the color is gorgeous, I have to apply three coats, to cover up the streakiness. I love that this polish is very effortless to apply and that it looks clean and beautiful on the nails.

The quality of this polish is amazing and it really does deliver the perfect manicure with such a classic, chic look.

I hope you enjoyed this nail post! Have you tried any Butter London polishes? Any Favs? Please share them below

*Collective Haul~Part 1*

This Collective Haul will be in two parts and this will include part 1. I purchased a few blush products and two new nail polishes in the past week or so, and would like to share with you all, what I picked up.

Tarte's Mini Blush and Bronzer Set

I have been eyeing the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blushes, and since this set came with one, I thought I would give it a try.
Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in the color "Dollface" is a cool-toned baby pink shade.
This blush was super soft to the touch and gave me a natural flush to the cheeks. The best part is that the color lasted all day! I'm super impressed with the quality of this blush, I will defiantly be purchasing a full size.

The set did come with a nice mini bronzer, which I didn't really need, but was excited to try.
Tarte's Mineral Bronzer in the color "Park Ave Princess". The bronzer was super soft as well and gave my face a natural sun-kissed glow. I am totally impressed with this Tarte mini bronzer & blush set!
Both Products Are:
*Formulated Without: Parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrance. AND "Cruelty Free"
Both Products Include:
*Skinvigorating ingredients: Vitamins A&E, vitamin C, grape seed extract, mineral pigments, and amazonian clay.

Purchased this Tarte set at Ulta for $15

I have been wanting to try Milani's Baked blushes, but never could find them. I was at my local Publix and came across them, so I picked one up.
Milani's Baked Blush in "Dolce Pink" is a peachy pink shade.
I love the texture and feel of this blush. However, I don't like the shimmery finish. But used as a highlight, it works and looks gorgeous on the cheeks.

Purchased at my local Publix for $7.99

I picked up a NARS Blush at my local Nordstrom and have been loving it!
NARS blush in "DOUCEUR" is a mauvey brown shade.
I love the texture and pigmentation of this blush. I use a very light hand, and the results are gorgeous. The color is so pretty and neutral, that it goes with any makeup look.

 Purchased at my local Nordstrom for $24

I picked up another ELF blush "Tinkled Pink" to add to my collection. This blush has now become my favorite out of the ELF blush bunch. The color is so soft and pretty. A perfect light pink shade. Love it!

Purchased at my local SuperTarget for $3

I have heard alot of great things about the Butter London brand of nail laquers. So I picked up two and can't wait to swatch them for you guys. "Yummy Mummy" is a light golden brown shade and "Teddy Girl" is a light opaque pink.

Purchased them both at my local Ulta for $14/each
I hope you enjoyed this Part 1 Collective Haul, do you own any of these products? Please comment below and stay tuned for Part 2.

NYX & Revlon Lippies!

I recently purchased a few lip products from NYX and Revlon cosmetics and I wanted to share with you, the colors I picked up.

I picked up two of NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams.
I have heard alot of great things about these magical lip creams, so I wanted to try a couple of them.

Addis Ababa
Addis Ababa is a bright fuchsia pink color.
Tokyo is a light peachy pink color.
I love the silky smooth way both lip creams applied to my lips. Not only do they appear matte, they both last extremely long on the lips. They leave my lips feeling nice & hydrated, which is something matte lipsticks typically don't deliver. I will defiantly be purchasing more of these amazing lippies. Priced at $6/each and can be found at Ulta, or wherever Nyx cosmetics are sold.

A couple of weeks ago, I stopped into Walgreens to pick up a few things and like always went and browsed the makeup aisle.
I wanted to try these two shades, mostly because I don't own any Revlon lipsticks, with matte finishes.

Stormy Pink
Stormy Pink is a medium berry pink color.

Sky Pink
Sky Pink is a light neutral pink color.
Although I love Revlon's lipsticks and their textures, I did not care for neither of these matte shades. They both felt very drying and did not apply smoothly to the lips. I will not be purchasing any more Matte finished lipsticks from their line.

I did pick up two Revlon-Creme lipsticks as well.
I love Revlon-Creme lipsticks so much and thought these two colors would be gorgeous.

Fire & Ice
Fire & Ice is a deep red orange color.
I love this fiery red color! It applied very smooth and silky to the lips, as these Creme lippies typically do.

Primrose is a light blue toned pink color.
Primrose reminds me so much of Angel lipstick by MAC, but creamier. I love both of the Revlon-creme lipsticks and I want to pick up more colors. Their creamy textures and opaque shades make them the ideal & perfect lippies.

I hope you enjoyed this lipstick post and maybe saw a shade or two you wanted to try. What are your must have lippies? Please share below
