Plain Old Polish- L’Oreal Paris in Mauvie Star

Hey remember I said I wanted to try out new brands this year? Well L’Oreal isn’t a new brand for me in terms of their makeup but this Mauvie Star is the first L’Oreal nail polish in my stash. This first experience was a surprisingly good one. Overall I loved it. Of course it doesn’t bowl over my love for China Glaze but it impressed me enough to wear this colour for more than just one day. 



Interestingly enough I can’t find another colour in my stash that looks even close to this colour. I have true pinks and true purples but Mauvie star is pink and purple wrapped up in one. 



What I loved about this polish wasn’t just the colour but the formula was smooth, no bubbles in sight and just one coat gave a good opacity and two coats as shown in these pictures was enough to show the true beauty of the colour. I was really impressed with this line of L’Oreal polishes. I go minor chipping after one week of wear which is fine for this nail polish addict.

 
Have you tried any L’Oreal polishes? Do you find them amazing like I did? Tell me your favourite L’Oreal shade! I’m dying to try some more!
Happy Mauvies!
XOXO

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
