Color Flash™ Instant Gel Nail Color LED POD by Katie Cazorla - Review

One of the nights that I was in Vegas for Cosmoprof, I was able to attend a dinner with other amazing bloggers and Katie Cazorla. If you are a nail fanatic, then you should know Katie. She has a TV show on the TV Guide Network called Nail Files and she's so funny and amazing in person. She also has her own product line, which includes nail LED lights, Color Flash polish, and nail extras to go with everything. Read on to find out more!

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm (2 Shades) - Swatches

Why are these little lip balms so hard to find? I barely found them a couple of days ago at Walgreens and they only had limited shades left. It was these two and the yellow and green one. Those didn't appeal to me too much so I ended up getting these. I love the original Baby Lips and I knew I would love these too. See swatches and more below!

SinfulShine with Gel Tech Collection (4 Shades) - Swatches

Today I have a few swatches of the new SinfulShine nail polishes. These are high-gloss, high shine nail polishes with Gel Tech; a self-curing polymer formula that has the same shine gloss as an acrylic UV cured gel. I love the regular SinfulColor nail polishes, but SinfulShine is a great addition. See swatches of the 4 shades below!

Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab Concealer in Medium - Review

Today I have a review of the Covergirl and Olay Eye Rehab Concealer. I was really hoping this would be a great coverage concealer with still giving me hydration for my dry skin. I ended up buying the medium shade which was a bit too dark, but it still worked. Read on to see if this is a product that I recommend!

Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation - Review

Wearing a foundation right now is one of the last things I want to put on my face when it's so hot outside. Liquid foundation practically melts off my face and I look like I didn't even do my makeup in the morning. Powder foundation has been okay but since I have dry skin, I can sometimes end up with dry patches. So I was really excited to try this one from Maybelline, since it is a gel stick foundation that will (hopefully) keep me shine free. Read on to see how it work for me!

L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder in 318 Nautral Buff - Review

I was intrigued to buy this new L'Oreal Liquid Powder when I saw it at Target. I really wasn't sure how this was going to be with my dry skin but I decided to give it a try. Now that it's summer and a million degrees outside, my skin has not been so dry, more on the normal side. So I figured this liquid powder would work out for me. See my full review below!
