Guide to Essie Nail Polish: The Neutrals

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with Essie nail polish. They have a wide selection of color choices, and have always been the best quality wise. For about $8 each they are priced moderately between drugstore nail polishes like L’Oreal, and high-end polishes like Marc Jacobs Beauty. The hard part? Since Essie has such a fantastic range of shades, it can be a bit overwhelming to find the perfect color. Luckily you have me here to supply you with an Essie Nail Polish Guide, starting with the basics, neutrals! Essie – Blanc: a snowy white,…

NARS v. E.L.F. Cosmetics: Blush Dupe Guide

As I mentioned in many previous posts, I love a good make-up dupe or alternative! While my MAC Lipstick Dupe Guide is still in progress, I thought I’d take a break & round up some great alternatives for a few NARS blush favorites. NARS blushes have become a staple in my make-up collection, but E.L.F. has created pretty comparable versions. NARS blushes retail for $29, while E.L.F. blushes are only $3. It’s a great alternative for someone on a tighter budget, or just interested in trying a different line.  NARS Desire – E.L.F. Pink Passion; NARS Deep Throat – E.L.F. Candid…

Milani Baked Blushes: Review + Swatches

In May, I reviewed the Milani Baked Blushes, but I decided to do a new post to provide further details and better pictures. I loved them immediately, then became bored with them, and now recently re-discovered why I fell in love to begin with. As I mentioned previously, they are most comparable to MAC’s Mineralized Blushes, but at a more reasonable price point. In my opinion, I think they may even be more pigmented.  Luminoso appears as a light coral on the skin. There is so much hype surrounding this product and deservingly so! To me, it seems like luminoso is…
