At this point in time, every time I go back to my parents house in Michigan, they fully expect and understand that I’ll disappear at some point, on an adventure to Walmart for Walmart exclusive polishes and makeup. They might not quite get it, but at this point they no longer question it. Who would have ever thought I would miss Walmart while living in Chicago?
Most of the time on these quests, it’s to find the newest Sinful Colors collection, and this last visit was no different. I zoomed on over and almost gasped audibly when I found the display, and snatched all the colors up with my little grabby hands.
The collection I’m talking about, and that we’re looking at today, is the new collection from Sinful Colors in collaboration with Bebe Rexha. It’s called ‘Velvet Obsession’ and features 8 shades with a “Velvet Matte Finish”. 3 of the shades, ‘Glam N Roses, ‘Dark Romance’ and ‘Twisted Obsession’, have the sticker “Bebe’s Shade” on them, and I believe those are the 3 Bebe helped to create herself.
They’re in frosted bottles, and I’m a sucker for any sort of frosted bottle. I’m like the -Homer Simpson voice- “Mmmmm, frosted bottles”. They just look so classy.
These can be found exclusively at Walmart stores right now. I do wish they were online like their other collections, but definitely look for the displays at your Walmart store. They retailed for $2.99 each.
I don’t know if you’ve read or realized yet, but I love fall. The deep vampy colors of polish and makeup are my FAVORITE. I’m a pale girl so these deep shades make me look even paler and witchier, and I’m ready to let my gothy inner self out. WHICH THIS COLLECTION REALLY LETS ME DO.
This post took a little longer than planned, as I had a freelance project come in that I holed up in my apartment all weekend for, and I still haven’t fully figured out how to pre-plan and have posts saved up like a good blogger. This blog will always just be a hobby, and my “real job” will always come first (I’m a graphic designer), so I’m glad you guys are always patient!
This is OPI collection for Fall 2019 based on Scotland. So there are fun puns and fun facts about Scotland ahead, prepare yourself. We have the 12 polishes from the collection, and then 2 exclusive shades. As always I grabbed these from polishpick.com (If you ever buy from polishpick.com, there’s a dropdown where you can put my name in as a referral! It’s not an affiliate code, but does still help to show where people are coming from!)
We got a lot of nail polishes to talk about today, so let’s just start talking already.
Hey look! A Wet N Wild post up before they’ve announced another collection! You know, it’s about continuous improvement, and I knew I would get it someday. It’s obviously only up from here.
Kidding aside, I’m still figuring out how to tackle these monster posts in a more timely way. I need to work on just writing my thoughts on each product as I use them, so I’m not just overwhelmed by how much information I have to type and procrastinate (aka my entire college career).
There’s a lot to get into, so enough self-reflection, let’s just talk about it already. Today we are talking about the Wet N Wild Pac-Man collection. This is a full collection obviously themed after the most popular arcade collection. It features 2 brushes, 1 eyeshadow palette, 1 blush palette, a Blushlighter, a Bronzer, 4 Ghost Glosses, and a lip scrub and lip balm.
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Do you have any plans for your long weekend? I’m going up with friends to our college town for a little reunion, and I’m so excited! I can’t wait to just be goofy and silly with college friends for an entire weekend.
And of course, this time I made sure there’s lot of polish queued up for the long weekend, so don’t worry there’s still polish and posts coming! Lots of fall collections on the way, and this new trio.
It’s a quick little post today for a cute little trio. We have a new trio from Sista Chic Lacquer! This is the ‘That Song is Stuck in My Head’ trio and is based on those songs that just get stuck in your head when you hear them. It’s a trio, so there are 3 new polishes. These will release on September 1st on the Sista Chic website and will retail for $10 each. As always, a portion of the profits will go to Project Rescue, an organization that helps women and children rescued from sex trafficking.
There is another trio also releasing on the 1st, so be sure to tune into the Sista Chic website!
I can’t believe it’s almost September already, where has the time gone! Of course, I’m not that sad as I’m so dang excited for Fall. Fall is my favorite season of all, and I’m ready to no longer be sweating all the time. I’ve lived in the Midwest all my life, so the colorful and changing leaves are always incredible and beautiful, and JUST GIMME FALL.
And today, we’re looking at the first of the fall collections I have to review. Fall is also my favorite for nail polish and makeup, as I’m a sucker for deep, vampy and jewel-toned collections.
The first one up is the ‘Sensual’ collection from Zoya! This is their typical 12 piece collection, and features some neutrals, some berries and deep vampy blues and purples. It contains 9 cream shades and 3 shimmer/metallic shades.
Y’all it is almost SEPTEMBER. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN. Time is flying, especially with how much traveling I’ve been doing. I’ve been gone a lot of weekends, which is when I get a lot of blogging done, so my posts have been a little more sparse. But I got a lot of posts on the docket coming up. The photos are taken, the swatches are done, it’s just the posts being written and so much good stuff is coming on up. Stay tuned for all of the fun reviews.
Now, this is the last collection I have to review before we dive full on into fall collections! Don’t get me wrong, I love some warm weather and sunshine, but I’m so ready for fall. Fall is my absolute favorite season, and fall makeup and nail polish is the best. Give me some vamp, gimme some earth tones, gimme that COOL WEATHER.
Now this collection has a lot of oranges and earth tones, so though it may be a summer release, I’m still hella excited to put these on my nails. This is right up my alley.
What I’m going on and on about today is the ‘Rocky Rose’ collection by Essie. It was released as part of the “Summer Trilogy” from Essie, that included the ‘Gorge-ous Geodes’ collection and the ‘Sunrush Metals’ in their Gel Couture line. It’s a 9 shade collection of more earthy and warm toned shades, from browns, oranges and pinks.
I picked these up from transdesign.com (they have a few shades left) and 8ty8beauty.com. I’ve also seen them around at drugstores like Walgreens and Target.
You know, sometimes you plan on being productive and getting some posts done after you get home from another weekend trip, and then sometimes you fall asleep on your couch right when you sit down. We’re all trying our best here. I’ll actually be home this weekend, so as always I’ll be swatching up a storm to get some fall collections up and reviewed.
But first we have a couple collections that are falling right in between summer and fall, and are just too stunning to let go by. Mainly Essie collections, because they’re just released a boatload this year. I’m not complaining.
This is the Essie ‘Gorge-ous Geodes’ collection, and it features 6 neutral holographic shades.
I grabbed these from 8ty8beauty.com. I’ve found they always get new Essie collections the quickest, and I wanted to make sure I snagged these. They’re still showing in stock on their website. I grabbed em all up as soon as they were available, since I didn’t want to risk missing out on these. As I always say with any mainstream holographic shade, I snatch it up so fast. I need to have them all, and I hope mainstream brands keep putting them out. These caused a storm when they released, and they’re still making waves. I’ve been waiting so long to put em on my fingers, and it’s finally THEIR TIME. LET’S GET INTO IT.
