Almay Intense I-Color Shadow Stick Review and Swatches

Almay intense i-color shadow sticks in blue and hazel eyes

Almay is kicking out some really awesome stuff lately! It isn’t a brand I’ve typically been drawn to, but with the new releases, I’m lovin’ the company! One of their new spring products are these shadow sticks. They are a cream shadow in twist up form and Almay claims they are ‘crease proof.’ They are also rumored to be a dupe for the MAC shade sticks. I can’t speak to that, since I haven’t tried the MAC, but as a cream shadow lover, I think these are great! Read on for more….

My Greek Salad Recipe – Cheesecake Factory Dupe

Court's Greek Salad

My Greek Salad

I recently went to the cheesecake factory and had one of their new tapas-style dishes and it was the most delicious greek salad I’ve ever had! I wanted to recreate this at home since it seemed so easy. The only item that was in the Cheesecake factory’s salad that isn’t on mine is feta cheese. This recipe is Vegetarian but not Vegan (there is cheese in the dressing); however, it is vegan-able if you can find a greek dressing without cheese! (I haven’t thus far). Read on for the recipe…..

Sinful Colors Adventure Island Swatch and mini review

So, new blog – like it? I prefer the wordpress platflorm over the blogger platform, so that’s why I switched. Hopefully, I’ll be able to provide a nicer, friendlier, prettier blog because of this. Now on to the post…..

  I recently purchased the Adventure Island colors when I saw them on a display at Rite Aid. These colors are great dupes of the Pirates of the Caribbean collection which OPI recently released. The collections consist of dirty looking pastels and really stood out to me as colors which are unique. The first swatch I bring to you is called ‘starfish’. It’s a pretty pastel pink. The finish is a creme finish and I applied 2 coats to get the look you see here. I love sinful colors because they are so affordable and the color selection is awesome. However, the only downside is that they last a day less before chipping when compared to the higher end brands. I do put a lot of wear on my hands and mine chip at about 24 hours into wear (with a topcoat). You may get longer wear if you don’t abuse your nails as I do. Overall, I really like these polishes and would definately reccomend them for purchase!
