Butter London ‘Saucy Jack’ – Swatches and Review

Butter London is a prestige polish brand which can be a little pricey. Each polish typically retaisl for around $15.00 a piece.

Aveda Red Hair

My Red Hair (excuse the lack of smile, but this picture shows the color very well)

I get quite a few questions regarding my hair. I decided that a blog post devoted to my hair could possibly be helpful to those of you out there who want to go red or are having trouble maintaining it. Red hair has quite a learning curve and it did take me more than one dye job to learn what works for me. I’ve been keeping this color for about two years now and I am never going back!

OPI I’m Not Really A Waitress Swatch

OPI I’m Not Really A Waitress

I can’t believe it took me this long to get the most popular color that OPI makes! The bottle you see above is that color – I’m Not Really A Waitress. I thought the story behind this was interesting.

NYC Kiss Gloss in ‘Blood Red’

Yes folks, the Halloween collections are hitting the stores in August! I’m not a big Halloween fan but I love the colors that come out with the collections because they’re dark, vampy, and mysterious. So, beauty-wise, Halloween is a great time of year for me. I snatched up two things from the NYC Halloween collection, this lipgloss and the false lashes. I’ll write about the falsies after I wear them. As far as New York Color as a brand is concerned, I’m very happy with it overall. It’s a very budget friendly line which can be off-putting for some, as they assume it’s bad quality. I can’t speak for the entire line as I can for say, Revlon, because I haven’t used the entire gamut of all they offer; however, some of the products are really awesome and it’s an added bonus that they don’t cost a lot. NYC’s translucent smooth skin loose powder is my holy grail setting powder. I also think their creme bronzer (limited edition – bronze radiance) and cream blushes are as good as prestige brands and I love those as well (and use them daily). Now…..on with the review……
