Essie's Nothing Else Metals in a gorgeous metallic lilac, although, in some lights, it appears silver. When I first applied this, I almost took it off immedietely, I just couldn't see myself wearing it, but I applied a second coat due to curiousity(it was opaque after the first coat), and it looked much better, all the streaks dissapeared when the polish dried. I would reccomend buffing nails down before hand, I used the revlon ultra shine buffer to give myself a smooth nail. I'm on day three on this polish, and only one nail has a bit of wear on the tip. I'd give this 5 lippies, but I'm not the biggest purple fan and Essie's other colours from this collection(eg. Penny Talk and Good as Gold) applied better. If anyone has a stamping kit, I think this would be a great colour to stamp with.
I've been a nail biter all my life, but in the last year, i've been so desperate to quit(so desperate, that I used to wear finger cots while at home) This product has been a god send, a big reason I bite is I notcie one little imperfect, I try fixing it, and it gets worse and worse, t the point where I have either bitten then nail super short, or have picked at it like crazy, and am forced to grab nail clippers. This buffer has helped big time in letting me grow my nails. If theres a little imperfection, I just buff it away, then shine my nail immediately and problem solved. It's gentler than a file, which is nice, as I always file too much or end up making my nails uneven. Only problem I've had it the glue is coming apart.
Originally got this in the Germany Mini Set. This was the first colour from the set I tried, as I always wanted a nice nude polish and the closest thing I had was Papparazzi Don't Preach, but thats more of a pale pink, which doesn't really have a great application. As soon as I put on DPMB, I fell in love, it only look two coats, and went on so smoothly. I went out the next day and bought the full size bottle. I refer to this polish as 'mannequin hands" cause my hands look so perfect and the colour is close to my skin tone. I'm going to have fun using this as a base colour for when I do nail art.
I'm so in love with this polish! I almost never buy full size OPI bottles, as I never use an entire large bottle, but I couldn't resist this one. I've seen many similar colours in clothing stores, but they never have a good formula. When I saw Thanks A Windmillion at my salon, I really couldn't resist. It has a really nice dusty tone, which is unique to some of the other colours that I've seen which were similar. I've let all my coworkers borrow this polish, and it has looked UH-FREAKING-MAZING on a wide variety of skintones. Even looks good on short nails! This is one shade I think I'll need to get a second bottle of, cause there's a good chance I'll use this entire bottle within the next year.

Got the 50 ml bottle at dollarrama, it has worked great. It is gentle and creamy. The anti-wrinkle treatment is a nice bonus, not sure if it really works or not, but I am not too concerned. The 50lm bottle is also diffirent. I see a few complaints that the other bottle squirts everywhere, but i haven't had that problem. I will definitely buy again if Dollarama still has it.
Treatments (Eye) -The Body Shop - Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo

The body shop was running a sale that with every item you got, an extra 10 percent would be taken off (1 item, 10 percent off, 2 items, 20 percent off, and so on, ending at 50 percent) so I thought it would be a perfect time to try an under eye product. I am victim to both bags and large unattractive veins under my eyes. Nothing can get rid of them, but under eye creams helo a little bit, and make putting concealer on a lot easier. The Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo showed no change under my eyes, it did make putting my concealer on a little bit easier, but thats it. When applying the under eye reviver that is on side 2, with the wand, my skin started to burn. It is very painful. I've had this problem with body shop products before, but never this bad. I am not only using the roller to refresh around the eye before going back to an old under eye moisturizer. Maybe i'd notice a diffirence if I was able to use both steps of this product, but I can't stand the burning, so for me, this product was a waste of money
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - La Coupe Volume style thickening mousse

I love this mousse. I run it through my hair when damp then let it air dry. My hair dries having a very soft and natural feel. most mousse's turn my hair into straw, make it hard and it's super flat afterwards. This gives me volume that looks natural and very light. A can lasts me a really long time and shoppers often does a sale of 3 dollars off.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Every few months, I'll go to the Body Shop to grab two body scrubs, I get something diffirent each time, as well as a cocunut each time. Coconut isn't my favourite smell, but I found this body scrub to work best for me. I used to have such dry skin and got a a lot of red bumps and ingrown hairs, but all those problems have gone away since using Body Shop's Body Scrubs, especailly this coconut one. I just bought a new jar yesterday, and although I love my Vanilla Spice Body I got during the Holidays, I'm excited to finish it so I can start using this coconut one(or I might get impatient and use the new chocolate one). I also keep a jar of the coconut one at my moms for when I go to visit as the water where she lives is very harsh and leaves the skin itchy, but this body scrub definitely prevents my legs from itching.
This work's for highlighting, but not covering. I have been using this undereye after applying Benefit Erase Paste, which has been working pretty well together. I used Body Shop Lightening Touch by itself, and it would definitely work for someone who has no visible undereye veins, and only slight bags, but it definitely wouldn't work for my skin. Biggest complaint: It feels like it burns, which is another reason why I use another concealer first. Would only buy again if it were on sale
