Lush Fun! Blue - Calming Bedtime Bath Roll Review

I haven't had a Lush product up on my blog in a looooooong time!
This is a product that Sara sent me.
Here is what Lush says:
Treat your kids and your inner child to some well-deserved playtime with our multi-purpose moldable soap, FUN. This brilliant innovation is a four-in-one phenomenon combining soap, shampoo, bubble bath, and malleable toy into a single roll. Each color has a unique scent that evokes fond childhood memories of things like fresh baking and candies. What could be sweeter? 2.5% of sales from every bar of FUN is contributed to the FUNd, a LUSH initiative which supports charities in Fukushima, Japan that create safe places for children to play outside.

DID YOU KNOW?

For many children in Japan, life has not yet returned to normal after the 2011 tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster. For every bar of FUN purchased LUSH donates 2.5% of the sales to the FUNd, which supports children’s play and recreation projects in those affected areas. 
I remember Lush releasing this product but never looked into it because I was kind of intimidated by it. When it was first released, it really did just look like PlayDoh. I was intimidated by it because well... I had no idea what it did and how to use it. Granted, I didn't read the description, but when I got it in a box from Sara, I looked into it and was really excited to use it.
Since it was advertised as a soap, shampoo, and bubble bath, I tested it out for all three of those uses (I also sort of played with it and made shapes, but that has nothing to do with it's actual effectiveness lol).
As a bubble bath, it worked really well. I think it even worked better than some of their regular bubble bars. It is a fairly soft, PlayDoh like product that is easy to break apart. I used about a walnut size for one bath. It melted on it's own and produced quite a lot of bubbles and dyed the water blue. There was a lavender like scent to it, but still slightly PlayDoh like. Perfect for kids! The bubbles lasted in the bath for the entire time I was in it, which was about 45 minutes and left no staining in the bathtub.
As a soap, it worked pretty well as well but it didn't clean my skin as well as I would've liked it to. It did lather really well, but I feel like there was a slight residue left on the skin.
Same as when I used it as a shampoo. It didn't clean my hair as well as I would've liked, but still lathered pretty well. I think it'll work great on finer hair, or children's hair.
Each roll is $6.95 on Lush Usa, and comes in multiple colors.
I think this will be a great gift for kids as it's a toy as well as something they can bring to bathtime.
Have any of you tried this? What do you think?

Enchanted Polish Imagine Collection (The Beatles Collection) - Full Collection Swatches & Review

I'm super excited to share these polishes with you today because they're some of my absolute favorite indie polishes that I own. You have seen two of these polishes on my blog before, because I bought them like 3 months ago, but I recently completed the Enchanted Polish Imagine Collection (formerly The Beatles Collection) when they were restocked on Llarowe.
The Imagine Collection has a personal connection to me because my father and I bonded over the Beatles all through my childhood and right up until he passed away a year and a half ago. Basically anything Beatles is something I covet. These also happen to be Enchanted Polish's most popular polishes, and some of the most coveted polishes they make.
Recently, Enchanted polish switched up their packaging. The two polishes Mean Mr. Mustard and Octopus's Garden that I had purchased before are in the old packaging. The new packaging have rectangular bottles with the company's emblem. The emblem also comes on the boxes. 
Each of these polishes are super strong multichromatic polishes sprinkled with a delicate holographic glitter.
The colors in the collection are:
  • I Am The Walrus - Orange to Red colorshift with holographic shimmer. In the bottle, there's a rainbow like chrome shift but on the nail it's really from an orange to a red.
  • Mean Mr. Mustard - Bright gold, to mustard to green to blue shift with holographic shimmer. The bright gold and mustard yellow is super strong and probably my favorite part of the color shift.
  • Hey Jude - pale dusty rose to green color shift with holographic shimmer. A lot of polishes that shift from pale pinks to green aren't this strong, so this is a pleasant surprise.
  • Octopus's Garden - royal purple to royal blue shift with a slight red tone to it as well. At certain light there's a very bright red color shift. Very cool.
  • Magical Mystery Tour - super bright teal turquoise to blue to royal purple shift with holographic shimmer. The purple even goes as far as magenta at a certain angle.
  • Across The Universe - light blue to blue to purple shift. This is really similar to Magical Mystery Tour, just has a blue instead of turquoise shift. In photographs the color shift is much more evident than in person, but you can still tell them apart in person. At a certain angle there is also a magenta shift to this as well.

Each polish is swatched below once over black and on it's own. The swatch on the left (in each box) is one coat over black. The swatch on the right (in each box) is 3 coats on it's own. Further, each of the swatches are photographed under artificial light as well as under flash from my camera. The artificial light is under 2 daylight bulbs, and are the photos with the white background. The table top (brown wood) background are photographed with a flash.

At the very end of the post you'll see a photo of the swatches at a really drastic angle - that way you'll see another dimension of the polishes, and the magenta flash that I mention in some of the descriptions.
Each Enchanted Polish is $13 on their website, then $14 or $15 on Llarowe and Harlow & Co.

NOTW: Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel - Bold Sangria

In a surprising turn of events, cell phone photos are almost good enough to be used as swatch photos now. The photo above was taken with my iphone 5. Like... what? It's slightly grainy when blown up but honestly it's really not that bad! Not DSLR quality, which is NOT what I was expecting, but still pretty good.
This is one of the newer Revlon nail polishes that was released right before summer. The color is Bold Sangria and is a warm purple creme.
There are berry undertones, which you can see in the middle of my nails.
Formula wise, the Revlon Colorstay polishes are pretty good. The polish is super glossy and was opaque in 2 coats. This stayed on my nails for a good 4 days without chipping. The polish above was dry with Seche Vite, which I applied for longevity purposes rather than finish purposes.
My only problem with the polish is the brush. The brush is a semi wide brush that comes out of the little applicator into two parts. Because of that I feel like the polish doesn't go on very well. The brush drags a little and that's why the berry tones are prominent on my nails. The polish was sort of dragged off.
I do love the color of this polish though and was a great fall color.

Nivea Lip Butter Photos & Review

Nivea released a new line of lip balms to add to their brand about a month ago and it sparked quite a bit of talk within the beauty world. I wasn't able to find them in my area until about 2 weeks ago. There are 4 "flavors" to choose from, and I was still only able to find 3 of them.
Each Nivea Lip Butter comes in a little flat tin. The balm is inside and reaches right up to the top of the rim. I personally hate this packaging. Since it's so thin, there isn't much to grip on to, and it's really hard to get the cap off. In theory, it's just supposed to slide off, but I can never get tins to open like this, especially when it's so flat. I think I'm eventually going to purposely dent the side of it so I can lift the cap off easily.
That's pretty much the only negative I have for these lip butters. The actual formula is fairly satisfying compared to the other Nivea lip balm I have. I own a Touch of Honey lip balm they make. The balm is not as moisturizing as these lip butters, and doesn't last as long. The lip butter formula is slightly thicker and almost feels like a cream. It's most definitely a balm, but you can pick up some of the product versus just residue of oiliness like most balms. The balm lasts on my lips for about 4 hours and conditions my lips pretty well.
Like I mentioned before, there are 4 flavors, and I was able to find 3.
  • Smooth Kiss - flavorless, for all of you that enjoy unscented products
  • Vanilla & Macadamia - I smell more vanilla than macadamia in this. It smells very bath like, or bakery like, versus perfume like.
  • Caramel Cream Kiss - The caramel undertone in this is quite strong, and it reminds me of coffee. This is my favorite of the bunch.
The fourth I think is a rose scented one, and I have every intention of purchasing it.
These retail for about $4 each and you can purchase these at all drugstores.



Nars And God Created The Woman Palette - Photos & Swatches

Nars Shadows have been on my Sephora Wishlist for two and a half years. Considering that I'm a total spontaneous shopper and hauler, I sort of feel like it's an accomplishment that I had yet to purchase a shadow from Nars until now.
I think I was waiting for something like this though before I committed to buying a Nars shadow because they're so expensive. A single Nars shadow is $24 and a duo is $34. Also, since Nars is one of those brands that sort of has a 50/50 success rate (some products are amazing, some are just really really crappy), that was another reason I hesitated for so long.
When I saw this on Temptalia, I immediately went over to Sephora and purchased one with little to no research because it had 4 shadows that I had been wanting to try for a long time.
The palette comes with 6 eyeshadows, a mini of their Smudgeproof primer and a travel size of one of their brushes.
The 6 shadows are:
  • Alhambra - golden champagne. This was part of a duo, and Nars actually doesn't specify which in the duo is Alhambra. Or perhaps this is a color in between both of the colors in the duo? I don't know. But "golden champagne" is one of the descriptions Nars provides with the duo. It's definitely a warm light highlight shade with decent color payoff. It's pretty frosty. It's sort of like Cover Girl's Champagne when swatched.
  • Bellisima - gray brown. Again, I'm just guessing at which one in the duo Nars considers as "Bellisima". This is a mauve toned brown color. There's a color in the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay that's similar. It swatches a little cooler than in the pan. This would make a good crease color or best friend color. It wasn't that bad for a matte shadow, slightly on the dry side but still applied with a good amount of pigmentation.
  • Kalahari - bronze pearl. Another duo, another guess. This one is definitely very bronzy and would look great for blue eyes. It reminds me a lot of what Jennifer Lawrence has been wearing recently on the red carpet. Sometimes she goes more gold (like her hair) but sometimes she leans on bronzy colors. This one was slightly sheer but still had decent color payoff.
  • Galapagos - rich bronze with gold flecks. This was one of my favorites of the group, and one of the ones I had been wanting to try for a while. The warm brown with gold flecks is pretty flattering on me. It applied with a little fallout, but the glitter showed through and the pigmentation was good.
  • Coconut Grove - matte deep taupe brown. Another that I had been wanting to try for a while. Unfortunately, I don't think this version is quite as good as their regular single eye shadows. I think their regular shadow swatches really really bold and strong and this was a little on the dry side. It wasn't terrible, but you can see where the swatch came out a little patchy. It is a good color for eyebrows though, or for lining the eyes. Just expect to have to work with it a little more patiently if you use it as an actual shadow color. Fortunately, I did want Coconut Grove for the purpose of filling in my brows and lining my eyes, which is why I never bought the full size because it wasn't worth the $24 for just those two reasons.
  • Night Clubbing - black with gold pearls. This one looks dark green in the pan and when swatched but if you look closer it is most definitely a black with gold shimmer. It swatched amazingly and is the most opaque and easiest shadow to work with. It does fall down a little but if you apply concealer after, you'll be fine.
The brush it comes with, #3 Eye Shader Brush, is a soft, fairly dense and large applicating brush. Because of it's size, it almost functions better as a blending brush. I actually quite like it. I never expect travel sized brushes or brushes that come in palettes to be of any use because they're typically pretty bad. But his one feels very nice, the handle is weighted and feels expensive, and it applies color pretty nicely. I used it just to run a color over my lid really quickly because when layed flat it pretty much covered my lid entirely. It blended colors really well too so I can see this being a brush that I use quite a lot in the future because of it's convenient size.
Overall, I feel like this would be a great palette to travel with because of the 3 neutral tones, the highlight and the 2 dark tones. Coconut Grove would be used for eyebrows and lining. And since when I travel I spend little to no time on makeup, I don't need to carry around a different palette with way more shadows like the Naked Palette. The size of the palette is pretty much the size of my palm so it also saves space. Each shadow in the palette is about half the size of a regular single shadow from Nars.

This palette retails for $59 and is available exclusively at Sephora.

NOTW: OPI St. Petersburgundy & Essie Beyond Cozy

This was a lost Holiday NOTW. I believe I wore this on Christmas all the way to New Years.
The red is OPI's St. Petersburgundy which is a deep red jelly. It's my go to for a classic red nail. The blue tones in it make it perfectly vampy and dark without going too too dark.
I added an accent of Essie's Beyond Cozy from the Leading Lady holiday collection just to add a little bit of sparkle. The color of the glitter is like a platinum gold.
What I have on my nails is 3 coats of the OPI and 2 coats of the Essie. The Essie glitter is a very fine glitter but very densely packed so it went on opaque in 2 coats.
The photo was taken about 3 days after application and there was little to no wear at this point. By New Years, it was slightly worn around the tips, as well as on the glitter nail.
There isn't much else to say about this manicure - but I did really enjoy this manicure and got a lot of positive comments on it at work :)

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Swatches - Grape Vine & Pink Punch

I have another permanent swatch for you this morning - just as a reminder I've started tagging everything that's permanent (regardless of brand) with "Permanent Swatches" so that it's easy for both you guys and for me to keep track of permanent things.
Maybelline has a full line of lip products, from glosses to lipsticks with multiple formulas for each. These products are the most basic of their line, which is tinted lip balms.
I think these were first released some time last year, either in the spring or summer. They were released right after the Revlon Lip Butters. At first I thought they were supposed to be similar to those so I didn't buy them. It took me this long to finally try them because I guess I finally paid enough attention to them to realize they were tinted lip balms lol. 
There are 5 in their permanent line, I know 2 are very very very sheer, basically transparent. The other 3 are colored, but are also very very very sheer. For whatever reason I decided to only buy 2 of the colored ones, but I know I'm going to go get the third because it's a red tone, and you know I love my reds lol.
The two that I bought were:
  • 20 Grape Vine - smells like grape candy and tints your lips a sheer grape candy color. This really isn't all that pigmented, but will give your lips a little bit more depth and sort of a stain. 
  • 25 Pink Punch - smells like a mixed fruit candy and tints your lips a sheer bright warm pink. This was more pigmented than Grape Vine. I think it's because it's much more bright than Grape Vine.
I think my favorite part about these is that they come completely sealed. More lip products need to come sealed. Not necessarily like this, but just... sealed lol. 
Next, they remind me a lot of the Lip Smackers chapsticks, especially the ones that were soda flavored. Grape Vine reminds me SO much of the grape soda Lip Smackers that I wore pretty much everyday in 7th and 8th grade. 
Use wise, they do moisturize but not 8 hours as it says on the packaging. I get a good 4 hours out of them. Color wise, they do settle and deepen in color but I wish they were just a tad more pigmented, like the Fresh Lip Balms. Yes, the $20 difference in price is there for a reason, but I just wish they showed a little bit more on the lips. They're not bad colors or products though, and since they're so inexpensive, I like that I can use these everyday, not worry about them, throw them in a purse, and not really be heartbroken if they get lost.
Again, I totally intend to go get the red one, and hopefully I'll find that one to be a little better in the color payoff.
These retail for about $3.50 which is nice considering they're really just a lip balm. You can purchase these at all drugstores.

Maybelline Color Whisper - 50 Cherry On Top, 65 Pink Possibilities, 80 Made-It Mauve

In the past month, the drugstore has had a lot of great releases. Thinking back on it, the majority of them were lip product releases. L'Oreal had their Aqua Lip Lacquers, Cover Girl had their jumbo sticks, and Maybelline had another release with their Vivid Lipsticks
This is Maybelline's other release, a new line of lipsticks called the Color Whispers. This seems to be Maybelline's version of the Revlon Lip Butters. Just as a sidenote - Revlon just released 4 new shades to their Lip Butter line. I haven't found them yet, but apparently they've been spotted at Ulta and Target. I think I may have to go venture out and find them soon :)
Originally I saw the display for the Color Whispers and din't think anything of them. I was totally sucked in by the Vivids display, which was right next to it, and I didn't want to purchase any of the Color Whispers since they seemed to all be sort of neutral. I also didn't really need any more neutral colors. Which now that I think of it, was something I should have stuck to but am glad I didn't because I really do like these.
The formula for these is really similar to the Revlon Lip Butters. They're soft and pigmented with a natural gloss to them. All three that I bought glided on pretty well and felt comfortable on the lips.
There are about 8 or 10 shades available - for the time being I have 3. Unfortunately people always seem to open and touch all the products in my drugstores so these were the only 3 that were truly untouched.
I bought:
  • 50 Cherry On Top - cool berry toned color with red undertones. It definitely doesn't swatch as red as it looks in the tube.
  • 65 Pink Possibilities - light warm toned pink. This one doesn't swatch as brightly as it looks in the tube.
  • 80 Made-It Mauve - sheer wine tone. This has slightly more brown than purple tones. This would be great for those that want to start venturing into dark colors but just want to dip their toes in.
Hopefully I can find some of the other colors soon since I have so far really liked these. They've stayed on for a good 4 hours before I needed to reapply, which is the same wear that I get from the Revlon Lip Butters.
Each Color Whisper is available at all drugstores and retails for about $7 to $8 each.

NOTW: OPI Grape...Set...Match!

It's time to play catch-up with all the NOTW posts again! I've yet again accumulated a ton of pictures of what I wore over the past few months so I'm back to spamming you all with that.
If you want a more time appropriate knowledge of what I wear on my nails, you can follow me on Instagram. I pretty much always photograph and upload after I get something in the mail, or when I paint my nails. My username is yukiesano :)
Today I have OPI's Grape Set Match. This was part of the OPI duos that they collaborated with Serena Williams on. That was a weird sentence.
Although this was limited edition, you can definitely find it on Amazon for incredibly reasonable prices.
Grape Set Match was paired with a chunky holo glitter. This is a royal purple glass fleck shimmer. It's got pieces of purple and blue reflective pieces and are very very sparkly. What I have is 3 coats which were fairly thin since the formula was fairly thin.
Purples like this always remind me that I love wearing purple. They're dark without being too dark, colorful without being too outrageous and I feel like they look really nice against my skintone.
The photo above is a little on the warm side but shoes what shade of purple (as in light or dark) it is. The photo below shows the tone (red or blue spectrum) more accurately, and also shows the blue flash.
I wore this for about 3 days before removing it, but it seemed like it was going to wear pretty well since I had no chipping or damage when I removed the color.

Urban Decay Oz The Great And Powerful Theodora & Glinda Palettes - Photos & Swatches

Honestly, I don't think any other brand comes out with palettes quite as awesome and amazing as Urban Decay does. Ever since the Alice in Wonderland palette from like 3 years ago, I've always been impressed and have coveted Urban Decay's eye shadow releases. Just to give you a quick rundown, here are just a few of the palettes they've released since the Alice palette, and the majority of them have been received with rave reviews: Naked 1, Naked 2, Naked Basics, 15th Anniversary, I ♥ NY (BOS 4 - or 5?), Smoked. 
So, when Urban Decay announced they were going to have palettes based off of the upcoming Oz movie, I was pretty excited and sure that I was going to purchase them. 
There are 2 palettes that come with the new standard of their packaging - Glinda and Theodora. The case is the tin like case that is similar to the Naked 2 palette. The shadows come in detachable little pots so you can stick them in their new palette system that they released last year.
Aside from the fact that the shadows are amazing quality, the sets Urban Decay comes out with are generally also a great deal. Each palette also comes with a liner and a Super-Saturated lip color. I was particularly excited about the Super-Saturated lip color because I hand't ever tried them and I believe they've never come in a palette before.
Each palette retails for $49 and can be bought at Sephora, Ulta and Urban Decay's Website. 

Divergent Series #2 - Dauntless: Sculpted Face


Here's my second Divergent Series video!
My first was a very bold and strong, dark red and purple look, based off of the Dauntless faction. My second Dauntless look is a sculpted face, meant to be a more wearable Dauntless look. 
I decided to do a bold and wearable look for each faction since there are only 4 (official, if you've read the books) factions to make looks for. 
So, here is the look! I hope you enjoy :D
Products Used:
  • Clear Mascara - Maybelline
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Mac Painterly Paint Pot
  • Inglot 363
  • Mac Blanc Type Eye Shadow

Spectrum Cosmetics Nail Polish Swatches

This is the last post I have for you from my massive haul of nail polishes. 
Spectrum Cosmetics is another brand I came across while browsing Etsy. Here is a link to their store.
While browsing other polishes, the black with holo pieces above showed up and I said "whoa" out loud because it was so deep and black but the holo was so bright. I totally forgot what I was doing, clicked the link and all of a sudden I had bought 3 new polishes.
Each polish retails for $8 currently at their Etsy store. 
---------
In my swatches for all of these polishes, I have 1 coat on my index, 2 on my middle and 3 on my ring and pinky fingers.
Dark Matter
Dark Matter is the polish that first got me to get to their store, as I mentioned above. 
It's a very deep, very black base with scattered pieces of holographic microglitter. It literally looks like magic in a bottle. 
At one coat it's pretty sheer, but it builds to a very opaque and true black polish. The finish is slightly matte, but with a top coat it comes alive. 
What I love about this polish is that the holo pieces don't disappear in the black polish, which is a problem with a lot of black polishes that have microglitter in them. 

Sour Grapes
Sour Grapes is a super bright purple to green duochrome polish. The only other purple to green duochrome polish is Zoya's Adina. I love that polish, but this totally beats it out in all competitions.
The green is much brighter, and the purple base is more of a royal purple. 
It's opaque in 3 coats, and is really even more gorgeous in person that in photos. (Ps, I love how photogenic this polish is).

Vega
Vega is a turquoise base with a brighter turquoise shimmer and pieces of holographic microglitter, the same as you see in Dark Matter.
This one I totally bought because of my love for turquoise polishes. No, it's not the most unique polish, but it really is quite beautiful, and again, the holo pieces don't disappear into the polish.
It's opaque in 3 coats. 

Northern Star Polish Swatches!

Northern Star Polishes are another brand that you can find on Etsy. Here is a link to their store.
I pretty much just found this brand by searching Nail Polish and the red glitter popped up on the search results. I was really intrigued by the red and black glitter because it was a matte glitter very similar to Floam, so I went perusing through her store and found a few more that I wanted to try out.
There's also some new Valentine's themed polishes and really cool glitters available to purchase so I'm definitely going to go back and try out some more of the polishes.
Currently, the 9mL bottles retail for $6 and the 15mL for $9.

Swatches - China Glaze Glitz & Pieces, OPI Mariah Carey, Orly neons

About a month ago, I ran out of nail wheels so I ventured over to Head2Toe Beauty and browsed through some of the polishes they had. I also ended up picking a few OPI polishes from a nearby salon so, I have all of the swatches for you guys :)
From Head2Toe I got some of the China Glaze Glitz & Pieces chunky glitter polishes that were released during the winter. I also purchased some more neons, mainly for nail art, but also because they seemed like staple neon polishes that I needed to have.
As for the OPI polishes, the salon was having buy 2 get 2 free, so I bought 2 for myself and gave 2 to my mom. I only purchased one from the new Mariah Carey collection since the colors didn't seem like anything I needed and I really am not into the Liquid Sand polishes. I may try the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes, but it's because I like the colors more than the OPI ones, even though they have a really similar finish. I also picked up a color from last year's Touring America collection.
OPI polishes retail for about $8 to $9 each. China Glaze and Orly polishes are about $3 to $4 on Head2Toe Beauty.
