January Beauty Favorites!

Can you believe that it's already February?! Who's watching the Super Bowl tomorrow?! I am, but sadly the Chargers aren't in it this year, but there's hope for next season! LOL :P

Back to beauty, here are my beauty favorites for January! Unfortunately for some reason Google/YouTube isn't letting me "reply" to comments, so I need to look into that soon. Let me know if you how I can fix that please! :)

Happy February! :)

REVIEW, DEMO & PHOTOS: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler!

My favorite eyelash curler currently is the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. This is a well-known curler that many people love, and I can see why!

Although the curler is $20, it does a fantastic job at curling your lashes! You barely need to press down on the curler to get them really curled. There's no pinch to the skin, and it doesn't create weird creases in your lashes!

This is what my lashes look uncurled. You can see that they come straight out towards the plane of the photo.

 Here's how they look when I curl one set (on the left) once.  They appear more uplifted than the photo above.

I decided to curl the same lashes again (2nd time) and is it noticeable or what?! Compare them to the right side!

Here I decided to wear two coats of mascara just to define my lashes more.

You can only purchase this mascara through the Shu Uemura website, which is where I purchased mine. Be aware of buying it through other vendors as I have heard there are fake ones around the market.

Butter London - 50% off Limited Edition Collections

For all the nail polish lovers, you can now receive 50% off Butter London limited edition collections through their website. January is the "final month" for you to get these sets and soon after you won't be able to purchase them. Enter promo code: LASTCHANCE15 at checkout. Free shipping with orders of $50+, however here's a trick to get free shipping with $25+: Add $50 worth of merchandise in the bag first from the Last Orders page, and THEN input promo code last! :P Happy savings!

Up to 40% off - Clarins!

I check Gilt City's site on a weekly basis to see if they have any discount vouchers for beauty products, and of course they did when I checked the site today! Gilt City is offering a $30 off $75+ purchase* on the Clarins website, meaning you can get 40% off your purchase if you have $75 worth of products in your cart before coupon code! That's a great deal!

In order to get the offer, you have to RSVP for a coupon code, and a unique coupon code will be sent to the email that you signed up with on Gilt City. You have to RSVP for a voucher by the 26th of this month, but the voucher does not expire until March 3, which is a lot of time! :)

I'm definitely more interested in skin care products nowadays, so I might do some research and see if any Clarins skin care products are worth trying. Clarins also sells cosmetics and men care too.

Jouer Holiday Sets - 50% off!

January is one of the best months to go shopping because there's a ton of sales and items that go on clearance after the holidays and previous year has ended. I like to occasionally browse the web to see if I can find any great deals, and I sure did on the Nordstrom's website!

Jouer came out with a few holiday sets for 2014 and now you can get them on the Nordstrom website for 50% off! I purchased myself the lipgloss set for only $12.50! :D

Check it out on their site!

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights

Happy Sunday everyone!

I have a new video out on a review that I did on the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfect Spotlights that you can purchase either at Ulta for $25. I have never tried Becca Cosmetics before, and this cute little set was a great way for me to try out their highlighters.

These highlighters? They're a.k.a. they are amazing! The set comes in three colors: Champagne Gold, Pearl and Opal. The most noticeable highlighter when applied is Pearl which is a white pearl highlighter. My favorite is opal which is like a pink/rose gold tone color.

What I love about these highlighters is that the don't make your face look shimmery. There are fine glitters in these highlighters, but they are barely noticeable on the skin. These products instead give your face a nice and healthy glow.

Additionally they are very easy to apply as they come with a lip gloss-like applicator. Formula is very creamy, making it very easy to blend. They also dry quickly enough, and do not leave a sticky texture behind. These are great highlighters, and I highly recommend them!

 Blended in.

Manicure Monday: Comet in the Sky!

Hello friends! Monday is almost over, but I still want to share with you my nails that I painted last week! I've had some simple plain Jane nails over the past couple of months, but I thought I could add some glitz and glam to my nails since I have time to do so over this winter break. I am wearing OPI polishes in Lincoln Park After Dark (classic), and Comet in the Sky (Holiday Celebrity- Gwen Stefani Limited Edition).

Lincoln Park After Dark is one of my favorite dark purples. There's a reason why people talk about it all the time, and why it's still available for purchase in beauty stores. It's a creme polish with lots of shine. It appears almost black with more layers that you add on top of each other, but if you look closely at your nails then you will see that it is essentially a dark purple. 

Comet in the Sky was part of this year's holiday limited edition polish for Gwen Stefani's line. It is no longer sold in beauty stores, but I was able to find it at a local Marshalls/TJ Maxx for only $3.99! That's a great steal! Be aware that this polish is a bit gooey. It is thick, and its purpose is to be a top/overlay nail coat. My nails look like they have a million layers on because of this polish, but I was trying to get an even spread of the glitter holographic shape chunks. I think it's still pretty, especially over Lincoln Park After Dark!

Swatches on white paper. :P
