Valentine's Day Nails

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I had to watch a foreign film for my film class yesterday so I had the perfect opportunity to devote a hefty amount of time to my nails. I picked up some mini nail polishes (4 for 99¢!) from Urban Outfitters and had to put them to use. The pink, Ballerina, needed a few coats to become opaque but the glitter polish (Mirror Mirror) and the white (Swan Lake) did not need more than one coat. I also used OPI's 'And A Cherry On Top' as the red. I'm not much of an nail artist; I don't own any tools so I just used a sharp pencil to draw the hearts. Let me know if you guys are being festive in any way today! I'd love to know! xoxo

January Favorites

I have not done a post about my monthly favorites in too many months... So without further ado, here goes January!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: This is the only foundation I have been wearing the last couple months. It was surprisingly not that difficult to have it shipped to me from the UK. Thank you and your 60% off sales! The color matches me perfectly and the coverage is buildable. I can't imagine going back to other foundations I have tried in the past.

Stila 'In the Moment' Eyeshadow Palette: I must admit this was an impulse purchase when Sephora had this palette for half-off during their Black Friday sale. The only downside was that one of the eyeshadows was broken when I opened it up. The pigmentation is out of this world and the eyeshadows are buttery. I have been wearing the lavender color all over the lid with the darker purple in the crease.

Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blush in 'Flushed': I wasn't the biggest fan of this blush when I first bought it over a year ago but I have been reaching for it quite a bit this month. Beautiful pink that stays on for hours.

Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask: This mask was part of a skincare set by Borghese that I plan to write about in the near future. I have been using this mask twice a week around my nose, on my forehead, and chin. It cleans out my pores when it hardens and has not dried my skin out. First heard about this from Fleur and couldn't pass it by when I saw it at TJ Maxx.

Buxom Dolly's Opening Act Set: I had been wanting one of Buxom's lip polishes and lip creams and this holiday set came with six minis! I love all the colors and all of the creams and polishes have a plumping factor so my lips look big and sassy :*

What have you been loving this month?
