Carousel Gloss in Candy Apple is Seriously Sexy

Lime Crime’s Carousel Lip Gloss in Candy Apple is seriously sexy. If you read my blog often, I’m sure that you’ve picked up on the fact that I have a serious love for bright lip color. Nowadays, I see most chicks in their 20’s and 30’s who don’t wear lipstick at all. Which is fine, to each their own, but bright lips are so youthful and playful and awesome. Anyway, that’s just ME.

I’ve had this gloss for a few weeks now, and haven’t had the chance to really play with it – until last night. After a few glasses of wine. The gloss is more of a paint texture vs. a watery gloss, and the pigment is punch-you-in-the-face. I didn’t Photoshop or alter the photos in any way – that is really how red and bright it is! I also love that the glitter is gold – not subtle at all but gives it such a cool effect. Besides mascara (and whatever base/foundation you wear) I don’t think you need any more makeup if you wear this gloss. I don’t think I could pull this off for work, but for a bar or dinner night it’s such a bright surprise on your lips. I am so tempted to buy the gold gloss too, but I’m not sure I could ever wear it anywhere haha. You guys try this? Hope everyone is having a great week!! xoxo

Celine and Nicole Looking FIERCE for V Magazine

OK seriously awesome. I cannot rave enough about Nicole Kidman's cover. First of all, she looks fantastic. I love that they took her out of her comfort zone and did something different with her hair and makeup. The cobalt eye makeup seems to pop right off the page. And can I have that skirt please? Mine would be a tad longer, but still. And Celine? Have we ever seen her exposed like this? She looks so care free and FUN. Airbrushed to hell or not, I really don't care. Brava to V Magazine this month.

ME Nail Polish: The First Anti-Aging / Anti-Brittleness Formula

The company Dermelect has something to brag about. They’ve created a nail polish that’s actually good for your nails, and can improve them over time.

ME nail polish claims anti-aging, anti-brittleness, and peptide infused effects in its formulas, and currently comes in 6 pretty shades. It’s about time someone did this - nail polish isn’t particularly good for your nails, especially gel manicures or acrylic nails. You won’t get this polish cheap, ($14) but you can buy it at C.O. Bigelow or from Dermelect’s website.

What do you guys think? Do you care $14-worth for your nails' well being? Haha, Happy Friday!

A Night with the Girls

This post serves no purpose, except to showcase the idiocy being displayed by us at bars. It was one of my besties birthdays this week, and what better way to celebrate than go to a restaurant called Trailer Park, and have a drink at Otto's Shrunken Head bar?

We invaded the photo booth, despite it being out of service. This was the damage..

At Trailer Park. Could you tell by the backdrop? HA!
Still loving my Lime Crime lipstick, as you can see

Spiky friendship bracelets! Check out the nails on this woman!!

A merry crew terrorizing the streets of NYC. On a Tuesday..

Hope everyone is having a great week, Friday is so near!! I'll post soon with reviews! xo

Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire

Kind of loving this bottle! Do I need another fragrance? Hell no! But I just love the LBD on the front!

The Real Deal

My fiance and I have been so obsessed with watching these little chicks fly through the air this year! They deserve all the glory and praise they are receiving worldwide.

And whoever was their makeup artist, I think they did a great job - they didn't look overdone, totally age appropriate and beautiful! Congrats girls!

Rebelling Against Prissy Summer Makeup.

After wearing mostly light and bright colors all summer, i'm finally rebelling. Black liner is my go to look, and I feel like I've put it on the back burner this summer. I like switching up my makeup routine and trying new shades of shadow, lipstick, etc but for now....the wings are back!

Christina Aguilera - Vintage Vixen

WHOA - WORK IT GIRL! This gorgeous, well put-together Christina is a far cry from what we've seen her look like lately. and NO i'm not talking about her weight, i'm talking about the hot mess express makeup she has been sporting. This photos is so GORGE and totally gives me the retro vibe. This photos is said to be a promo photo for Christina's new single, but I don't know if that's true or not. LOVE this!

A $250,000 Nail Polish. Seriously.

Hollywood designer Azature has created the most expensive nail polish in the world - it's $250,000!!!

Azature is known for his ultra lux jewelry creations, and is now bringing his "neo-fierce" luxury to the beauty world. The polish is said to contain 267-carats of black diamonds. Black Diamond is officially the most expensive in the world, beating out Model's Own Gold Rush Couture that retailed for $130,000. Who in the hell is buying this I will never know. I'd rather buy a car. Or a house. Or a pony. Or feed a small country. But hey, that's just me.

If you don't have $250K to spare, Azature is offering a $25 department store version of the asinine polish. Look, Azature, if you're going to be a psycho and make the most expensive and ridiculous nail product ever, WHY make a cheaper more affordable version? That's not what the people want! They want a chip in their nail polish to cost them about 50 grand! Insert an exasperated sigh here. Happy Monday
