Polishes -Revlon - Scented Nail Enamel: Peach Smoothie
TeeCube 1/26/2013 1:56:00 PM
Peach color with fine gold shimmer. It does smell faintly of peach when it is dry, but it fades and with a top coat not so much. I didn't buy it for the scent however, I bought this one for the color. So, so pretty and neutral.
Green small glitter mixed with bigger silver circle glitter in a clear base. I was hoping it would have been in a green base as well because then it could have been made opaque with less coats. All in all it is pretty though, and a nice tribute to Kermit!
Deep, dark, blood red. BEAUTIFUL. I would wear a base coat with this one because the color is so pigmented! Glad I found it.
Lime/Tree green with a tiny hint of light blue shimmer. Grass and the sky combined. Lovely! Appropriate name too.
Not black, but charcoal. There is a difference. The darkest gray. It's not flat or matte and it has the darkest possible purpleness to it. Very interesting color indeed. One can see in the bottle it has shimmer in, but not easily spotted on nails. Again, to my eye it looks like charcoal. I like it a lot! Inky like fountain pen ink.
Intense, tiny tiny holo glitter, looks gray-silver and is gorgeous. What I like about this particular color is you can make it as opaque as you want, depending on the number of coats applied. I love this polish! I also love the name -Coronation-. I actually got it in honor of QEII, not kidding. Long Live the Queen! (BTW, I'm American but have always been an Anglophile:) This is definitely one of OPI's prettiest polishes, especially within the DS range.
Melted milk chocolate brown. Pretty much opaque with one coat, but two is perfect. Lovely, delicious looking color!
This, in my opinion, is one of the most unusual polishes ever. In a sheer black base are red hex, silver hex, black hex and non reflective thin black bars. Way beyond interesting and like none before-if there are I have not seen them. The Cirque de Soleil collection at my Sally's was BOGO, so I am very pleased to have gotten this one. It's beautiful on nails and even just in the bottle it is stunning. Highly recommend. Could also be layered over any other color polish for any new look.
I have never seen a polish like this one and am so glad it was BOGO at my Sally's. it is a milky sheer white with multi size multi color glitters in. Some small hex and others. So cool and pretty looking. You can make it as I tense as you want by how many coats you use. Awesome polish.
Shampoo -Organix - Hydrating Macadamia Oil Shampoo

Love this! Very good scent like the other macadamia products, lathers really well and rinses clean. Perfect! A little goes a long way too. Superb.
This is very, very good. Smoothing, hydrating, softening. The scent is just like the oil and shampoo and I would definitely recommend it. Love the macadamia line.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Revitalift Miracle Blur

I grabbed 4 samples of this at Rite Aid, enough to squeeze into a small jar. It's nothing but a silky mattifying product, and it does not smell good. I will not be purchasing a full size of this item, unless the scent was improved because it has that "sunscreen gone off" scent. YUK I don't know why but I thought it would be a luminizing liquid, and it's the exact opposite. The product does make skin silky and matte, but I'm glad I only got free samples. It's not a liquid, almost rubbery, two packets filled up a small Bobbi Brown 3 ml jar, and a little goes a long way, and the effect does not really last. It's just not a necessary product.
I have this in "frappe" which is a beautiful milky beige pink. Very elegant, understated color. Perfect for fingers, but not for toes-that's where I wear a red. I like it. I like the bottle, it reminds me of the Sally Hansen hard as nails bottles with the wide bottle opening. The whole drinks gimmick is interesting because on the box the polish comes in the usual polish ingredients are sorted under two headings: vodka and simple syrup. Ha! But in the end, it's just another nail polish. I got a full size in my January ipsy bag, and don't know if I will ever purchase another Nailtini, as I lean toward OPI and China Glaze and Essie for my polishes. I was glad to receive this one and will use it because it is a nice color. At least I have one Nailtini. A cocktail for my nails. :-p
I got a deluxe size sample of this in my ipsy bag for January, and I am pleased with it. It's just Argan oil, plain and simple. I love the dropper bottle. I wouldn't purchase this particular oil from this brand because you can buy less expensive Argan oil at a store or online. I will however be refilling this bottle with other Argan oil when it runs out. Sorry Josie-I love it but can get it other places, in more quantity for less. I do love Argan oil- I use it for my hair and skin. Very moisturizing, very lovely.
I subscribed to the monthly service and just got my first bag today, and I absolutely love it. The products inside are very good quality, and the makeup bag it all comes in is great as well. None of it feels cheap, like cardboard wrapped tiny vials or anything (what one usually expects of the idea of samples). They are deluxe size samples (as well as a couple full size) in the same packaging as one would find of a regular size in a store, and I am very pleased with that. I would highly recommend ipsy because it is well worth the $10 a month and besides, who doesn't like getting beauty items in the mail? I really like the idea of a new different makeup bag every month.
