For me, this is a perfect deep red. A very classic red and flattering to many skin tones. Will wear this through the fall and winter. Highly recommend three coats.
I love this color! It's very bluish-purple. Reminds me of an amethyst gemstone. Received lots of compliments when I wore this to the office. Hard to remove due to the sparkles, but, that's a given. Gorgeous.
I love this color however I didn't like the "gritty" feel because of the glitter. Had to put two top coats on to make it smooth. Lovely girly sparkly Glinda pink. Nice for special occasions.

This is a great deep black-purple. Very classy looking and versatile. Received lots of compliments on this one. Would recommend. Probably a good dupe out there though.
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - Careprost~Generic Brand Latisse

I started using this generic product after reading the reviews on this website. Latisse is way over priced and I was looking for a more reasonably priced alternative. My eyelashes broke off after using Loreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara. I ordered Careprost and started using it about 3 weeks ago and I can definitely see a difference. I literally had no eyelashes and at day 12, I finally had something to put mascara on (NOT Loreal). I think this product is fantastic and plan on ordering another bottle so I am never without it. I have only had mild itching, nothing major. I am so pleased with the results that I will keep using it. Thank you MUA for alerting me to this great generic product. After 8 weeks of using this product, I can honestly say that I have long eyelashes! Unbelievable! This product actually works. Now for the down side, the skin around my eye and my eyelid has become very dry. Therefore, I am cutting back from every day to twice a week to see if that helps my skin and maintains my new long lashes.
This color is amazing! One of the best reds EVER! It looks gorgeous on. Just like Dororthy's ruby slippers. I'm in love with this color. Received so many compliments on it. Would definitely purchase again.
I am a big fan of Chanel nail polishes so when they advertised Strong and Steel for the fall, I immediately ordered them. I am dissapointed with Strong. In the bottle, it looks impressive, but, when you apply it, it just looks like any other charcoal/black polish. All of the lovely purpley/berry shimmer disappears. Not worth the money. Would not recommend.
Polishes -Lippmann Collection - Waking up in Vegas

As with all Lippman polishes, it goes on like butter and wears really well. It's a very versatile color and goes with many things. Love it! Received lots of compliments when I wore it recently. You can't go wrong with any Lippmann polish.
Gorgeous deep red color, goes on smoothly, chips easily though. Received lots of compliments when wearing it. Very classy color.
Gorgeous color, although I found the formula to be a little thick. Chipped easily, but, I still love it.
Very disappointed with the formula. Thick. Thought it would be a close dupe to Chanel's Nouvelle Vague. Wrong on all counts. Would not recommend.
After years of wearing OPI Bubble Bath, I have finally found a close dupe for it in CG's Innocence. Love this color, love the formula. It's magnificent. Enough said.
Orange Fizz is a gorgeous warm weather color. It's a little sheer so I use three coats. I always get compliments when I wear this for my pedi. You can't beat Chanel when it comes to the most fashion forward gorgeous colors. Highly recommend.
Overall I thought the application was way too sheer. Even after 3 coats it the nail line was still visible. Disappointed in both of the polishes I received from BL. There are so many better polishes out there that I wouldn't repurchase.
I generally use this color to layer over other french-pink sheer polishes. Great for layering. Too streaky & stark by itself.
