February My Glam Bag

So far I am still pretty impressed with the products that I am receiving from My Glam! Although, their shipping time isn't the greatest. I read somewhere that everyone is supposed to receive their bags by the 10th of the month. The two My Glam bags that I have received so far have been towards the later dates of the month. 
Not a big deal though since the products are great. :)
I am particularly excited about the new NYX Roll on Shimmer full size product that came in the bag. 

I was kind of skeptical of the whole roll on shimmer thing. Usually when something is in the "role on form" it isn't the greatest. I was amazed at the quality of this product.It is a great wash of color and shimmer that can be used quickly. I used this today over top of shadow primer all over my lid. While there was some slight creasing by the end of the time I was wearing it, it was hardly noticeable. 
This bronze taupe color will look so nice with a tan in the summer. Since it is for the eyes, face, and body, it is very versatile. I do not know how I would use this product on my face, but I do plan on using it over my collar bones to give them a little highlight and added sparkle on nights that I am gong out.
 I think I might have to check out the other colors that NYX offers in this product. 

They added two surprise chocolates! 
My Glam def. knows the way to my heart..

Current Favorite Lipsticks

As of lately, I haven't been wearing much lipstick,  but have been sticking to three colors for different occasions. They are Revlon's Color Burst lipstick in Soft Nude, Ulta's lipstick in 236, and the Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle. 

The lip butter kind of got destroyed..

Revlon Soft Nude 
Soft Nude is a light nude colored lipstick with a hint of pink. I was contemplating purchasing MAC's Creme D'Nude and found that this lipstick is a dupe for it. Since purchasing this, it has been my everyday lipstick. 

Ulta 236 
Ulta's 236 was actually a Christmas present given to me by Rhiannon from Modern Suburbanites in a Blogger Secret Santa this past December. I must say that I do not usually look at any of the Ulta brand makeup when I go in there. But, this lipstick is wonderful. It is the perfect darker pink color and is not drying at all. Plus it smells like candy. :) This is my most worn bolder lipstick that I own. 

Revlon Pink Truffle 
Pink Truffle is the only lip butter that I ended up picking up. It has great pigmentation. It is a good darker nude color to wear on days that my lips need more moisture. 

What lip colors have you been wearing lately?

JewelMint: Yves Rings

I am sure that this is not your first time hearing about JewelMint. It basically is like any other subscription website: you take a style quiz, based on your quiz you are matched with certain pieces of jewelry each month that fit your style, you then choose a piece of jewelry to purchase!
 I decided to finally order my first JewelMint piece after recieving an e-mail with a 60% off code for the first piece of jewelry. The subscription is $29.99 a month (with being able to skip any month). With this code it made my first piece of jewelry $12. This is the same price of jewelry offered at places such as Forever 21 (which isn't the greatest quality)! 
Might as well try it, right?

I chose the Yves Rings as my first piece. I was attracted to this piece because I do not own many brass colored rings. It comes with three separate rings so it is really the most for the money. I also loved the key and lock design. So cute.

Click here to see the Yves Rings on JewelMint's website!

 I was a little bit weary at ordering these rings because it states on the website that the rings are not adjustable. This is not so great when you have large knuckles like I do. The rings came in a size 7 and each ring fits differently on my fingers. The skinniest ring with the key fits on all of my fingers. The two larger rings fit on all of my fingers except the pointer and thumb. 

They say that you can either where these rings stacked or seperate. Wearing them stacked is a bit awkward for my fingers since the top ring feels like it will probably fall off. 
My favorite way to where them is seperatly stacked with my other favorite rings. :)

(ignore my hands...)

I am pretty sure that JewelMint offers 50% off your first purchase and I often get e-mails for 60% off. 
This is a great deal if you are looking for an affordable, good quality, unique piece of jewelry!

Pomegranate Punk Smokey Eye

I am seriously o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows. Out of all of the colors, I would have to say that my absolute favorite to wear is "Pomegranate Punk". It's gorgeous shimmer purple-plum red color that goes great with blue/green eyes. It is neutral color with a bit of an edge.  I have pretty much been wearing this color every day (besides the days that I wear "Bad to the Bronze"). 
 It goes great with darker brown eye shadows for an edgy smokey eye!

Zoya Nail Polish: Charisma & Kylie

This past month, the nail polish brand Zoya held an awesome special offer of 2 bottles of nail polish for free. All that had to be paid was the $6.95 for shipping. This was a great deal since one Zoya nail polish runs at $8. It was also a great chance to try the Zoya brand of nail polish since I had not done so previous to this. 
Lately I have been in the mood for bright summery colors to brighten my mood during these long winter months. So, I ended up choosing the colors "Charisma" and "Kylie". 

I think that Zoya's website describes these colors the best:

Charisma: Ultra bright neon fluorescent magenta/red-toned purple cream. This neon shade dries matte, but also can be worn with topcoat for a glossy finish. 

Kylie: Bright red-orange coral in a milky creme finish. A bright universally flattering shade.

So far, "Charisma" is my one of my new favorite nail polish colors! It is a great pop of color for the nails that will look great on anyone.

I also want to thank Naara from Unwritten!
 I won her wonderful giveaway of this Victoria's Secret tote bag as well as some extra goodies. :) 

Hope everyone is having a great night!
