Beauty Buzz: Obsessed!

Its MONDAY!... Nothing special about it but I hope a post makes it a little easier to get into the routine of the work week. As I said it's Monday so I am feeling a bit lazy. So for today heres a quick post on some of my must have beauty items.
  • Loreal Colour Riche: I absolutely love these lip colors. Its similar to a tinted lip balm but more pigmented. It is extremely moisturizing and has the best scent. My favorite is "Sunset Angora". It is the perfect coral color. I'm currently on my 3rd. Which is odd because I rarely finish any lip products.
  • Conair Mini Pins: I know most people don't give to much care to the bobby pins they use. When I first used these I was so impressed. Since they are shorter in length they have a stronger hold. The shorter length also prevents them from sticking out. I always buy multiple packs at a time because I lose them all the time and would hate to be without them.
  • Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Perfume: This has become my signature scent as well as my sisters. Although I own several other perfumes, this is the one i have repurchased time and time again for the past 8 years. I have also observed how much guys love this scent. They always comment how good it smells and many of them even know it by name now.

  • Benefit "They're Real" Mascara: I never thought I would be the type of person to pay $23 for a mascara, let alone repurchase. That was until I tried this one. I have yet to find a mascara that is better than this one. Usually most mascaras work pretty good on me since i have long lashes but his one makes them appear even fuller and longer. They appear to be fake. I always recommend this product to friends and even strangers. It has even worked on my close friend who has short straight lases. Try the travel size and I promise you will like it.

Nailed It!: Velvet Nails

I'm sure you have all seen the Ciate Velvet Manicure set at Sephora for $19. Well here's how to get the look for a lot less and with a lot more options. Enjoy! 
Supplies: nail polish, sheet of paper, brush, and flocking powder. This set of flocking powder I have was on clearance for $10. Regular price is $20 for 18 different colors. I got mine at Jo-Ann but pretty much all the craft stores offer a coupon for 40%-50% off.

Step 1: Apply your 1st coat of nail polish and let it completely dry.

Step 2: Apply a thicker 2nd coat.
IMPORTANT!: Complete steps 2-4 for each nail before moving on to the next one. 

Step 3: While the second coat is still wet quickly apply the flocking powder. Make sure to do this over a piece of paper to save any fall out and return the the container when your done.

Step 4: Lightly pat the powder into your nails to secure it better.

Step 5: After letting your nails dry for a few minutes use the brush to brush away any excess powder.You can use any brush you have laying around. Take advantage of those crappy brushes that come with your blush or eyeshadows.

Step 6: Enjoy!

The choices are endless. Just choose a polish and corresponding powder. For and added wow factor try using the flocking powder with glitter in it. You can also just do your tips, alternating colors, stripes, or an accent nail. My personal favorite is glossy gray nails with an oxblood red velvet accent nail.
