Nail Lacquer Trio LE|Clé De Peau Beauté

 

Hey guys! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. We’ve a snow storm today and it’s freezing cold outside. When it comes to winter inspired nails I love painting my nails with bold and festive nail colors. Is it only me or anyone else who wear bold colors in winter! Winter is one of favorite season because of the festive holidays and the bold colors. I’m very much drawn to deep reds and grays. So, when I received this trio nail lacquers package in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago, I was so thrilled that I share it on my insta story.

A big shout out to my girlfriend Amanpreet for this lovely PR package. Thank you so very much. I’m really grateful to receive this beautifu Nail Lacquer Trois Collection Nuit de Chine by Clé de Peau Beauté in my collection.

Collection Nuit de Chine

This is my first time playing with this brand and I’m pleased to say that I love everything about this set, their packaging, colors and the formula are just fabulous. I’m super excited to try these stuff out.

Introducing you to the artist behind this holiday line. Her name is Kathe Fraga and this is her first collaboration with Clé De Peau Beauté on their Fall 2017 Holiday Limited Edition Collection. The theme of the collection and her art is inspired by the “The Chinese film, In the Mood for Love. The birds in her design represent a couple falling in love.” As an art lover and someone who appreciate art, I really love her beautiful piece of work. She’s a very talented artist!

Smoky Veil is described as a deep engulfing ivory gray with a beautiful glossy sheen finishing. Two coats are all you need for the #notd look that I’ll be sharing you down below.

The scents of these nail lacquers are incredible. I’ve never smell such an amazing feminine and yet sophisticated rose fragrance before. The scents lingered the entire day I had it on.

Did you know that this product is formulated with Argan Tree Oil for moisturizing benefits? That’s a high quality products for your nails.

Nail Lacquer #14

I’m loving the longevity and color in Lacquer Chest described as Noir-red with hidden passion. Once applied and dried, the polish looks so pretty and it smells divine. I’ve been wearing it on my toes for more three weeks now only to see some chips around the edges, which is not bad at all in my opinion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As for the real test on my fingers, I’m happy to report that it stays on for a good 5-6 days on harsh environment, which aren’t so bad. I’m always rough with my hands – meaning, I don’t wear gloves when I do my dishes. For the ultimate test, I don’t apply top coat either when testing out nail polish just to see its true glory. I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality to say the truth. So, for the color to stay that long, that’s impressive!

Nail Lacquer #13

Gilding The Lily is a dazzling gold glitter which is so pretty. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a closeup look of the consistency and just looks at the gold and black glitters. So very festive and perfect for this holiday season.

#NOTD Cle de Peau

I’m really glad to have tried this stuff out. I know for sure that I’m going to keep wearing them non-stop!

I just found out today that this product went out so fast, it has already been sold out. Sorry that you missed it! But if you’re still interested in their other holiday collections go to their website for more information.

What are some of your go to colors this winter? Do you like a loud color like me or tend to play it safe? Let me know in the comments below.

Beauty Review & Swatches – Sephora

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But first, if you haven’t already seen my earlier Sephora Paintly Pink Unboxing, here’s a little run down of what to expect and there are four which I’m so excited to talk about today. If you want to know more, keep on reading until the end and I’ll explain all.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Color in French Kiss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I always wanted to try Laura Mercier products and I was super excited when I got this in this Paintly Pink Box and it’s a full size 0.12 oz. Oh Sephora! You just made my day, so thank you. All the products here are all premium as well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a closed up look of french kiss. Look how amazing the color is and let me tell you guys, the packaging is everything. Just look at that – isn’t it gorgeous or what! Comes in a rectangle shape packaging that looks so luxe!

This is a beautiful fuchsia Velour Lovers Color Lipstick in French Kiss. It’s so creamy, smooth and soft. It feels lightweight on lips and the formula is amazingly. Very comfortable on lips. I also love the velvety finishing look. So, love this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pigmentation is so amazing. Super easy to glide on lips and love the staying power. I’m wearing it today and I feel super gorgeous! Yes, I know (hahaha!)

Pros: Packaging, Pigmentation, Color pay-off, Comfort, Longevity, Finish, Amazing fuchsia shade
Cons: Price a little expensive on regular size tube (CAD$34)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pressed Rose Gold 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hmm.. I don’t remember having a Becca makeup products before and not to mention ever playing with their shimmery skin perfector. Yes, I’m such a dork! But, I don’t care. I’m just thrilled to get to play with it since I’ve been eyeing on it for a solid good year.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The color I got is in Rose Gold. I noticed there isn’t any scents to it, which is good. I like that! This pressed formula is really smooth and the pigmentation – Oh Nelly! It’s just glorious! It’s so so pretty with just one swipe I applied for highlight. They really mean business when it comes to highlight, I tell ya’. Love it so so much. And a little goes a long way.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Amazing color payoff and I couldn’t resist not to reach it. And look how cute the round packaging is!

I kid you not, you really have to try this. Ask for sample or swatch it at the nearest Sephora near you. Don’t take my word for it – just go and do it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Awesome Color Pay-off, High Shine Finish, Nice shade
Cons: None

Make Up Forever Artist Plexi Gloss 202

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was so happy to get this lip gloss and had been reaching out for it the last few weeks. If you follow me on Instagram, you should probably had seen me posting it there. Let me know what you think in the comment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a lovely coral that is noticeable on the lips but not over the top.

It comes in a doe foot shape applicator that’s flexible on the tip end. Really like this ingenious idea. The applicator take up the product with ease and it applies very well on lips. I find the formula to be quite pleasant and it didn’t bother me that much as a lip gloss. It gives a sheer glossy finish look that make lips fuller and sexier!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Awesome pigmentation, lovely formula. Easy to blend doe foot applicator, dewy and plumpy finish. It has good lasting power for a gloss but it is rather thick and a bit sticky which helps it last longer, if that make sense.
Cons: Price might be the downside 

Deborah Lipmann Nail Polish in Baby Love

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love the cute packaging. It has this luxury look that’s pleasing to the eyes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As for application, they are surprisingly smooth. I wore this nail polish for more than a week wit 3-4 coats and I’m quite impressed with the staying power.

I’ve seen this brand and did color swatches at Winners (Canadian retail stores) before but none of the shades actually calls to me and especially the glitters ones.

But I really like this Baby Love shade though. I love that it makes my nails looks so flattering as though as they’re my nails but better !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pros: Love the color,  long lasting up to 7-10 days (with 3-4 coats) 
Cons: Most overpriced, sheer finishing (but layering up will make nails look  so pretty) 

I would definitely pickup a few fall colors to my collection when they’re on sale. As much as I love the formula and staying power, I wouldn’t pay $20 for a nail polish. That’s just my opinion.

Overall, I really like what I got in my Paintly Pink Sephora Favorites box. I’m very impressed and satisfied with the products I got.

I’m sure all the above-mentioned product brands are works by whoever the teams have been behind their own products, they’ve definitely done the brand justice. The prices reflect the quality of the products and the brand name they carry, so yes, they are expensive but in my opinion – it’s still worth the investment.

This concludes today’s review and swatches. I hope you find this post helpful and your enjoyed it.

As usual, thank you very much for stopping by. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Bye for now!

Best Summer Drugstore Nail Polishes – Review & Swatches

 

When I saw these Sinful Colors nail colors collection at my local Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart) I couldn’t help but picked up a few of their spring-summer nail colors that caught my eyes. This is a collective best summer drugstore nail polishes which I’ve been wearing from spring through summer.

I believe I got some nail colors from my local Dollarama and also Walmart if I remember correctly. And they’re like $1.50 and $2.00 a bottle depending where you got them. It’s for 0.5 fl oz of products. A fairly good amount for the price.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like sharing my NOTW (nail of the week) on my Instagram and other social media scheduled every weekend. If you’re curious to see my weekend manicure or what color nails I’m wearing then hit here to go to my Instagram.

Okay, enough of me babbling and more serious talk. I’ve to say that Sinful Colors makes really good nail polishes and I’ve been really impressed by it. I’ve tried many difference drugstore brands such as OPI, ESSIE, L’oreal, Wet n Wild and this seems to have the staying power on par with the rest.  And what’s even better is that they’re dirt cheap! You got to love the price tag.

Here is the instagram picture I took of the polish. This really doesn’t do it justice. It looks much better in person when sunshine glare isn’t interfering with seeing how rich this color is.

I was wearing a Purple and Fuchsia shades nail color, with an added finishing touch of Revlon in 441 Radiant. So what do you guys think? Comment below, alright!

Pros:

  • A wide color selection to choose from
  • Affordable price
  • Available in many drugstores
  • No streaking
  • Semi-transparent that can build up to complete opacity
  • Long staying power especially on the toes (stayed on for a month)
  • No chipping for a week

Cons:

  • Dries slowly
  • Needs a few coats to get the opacity finish

Recommend: Yes, you got to try them. I’ll be going back to pick up more shades for the coming Fall. This wraps up my today’s best drugstore nail post which based on their quality and affordable prices.

Tell me which color have you collected from Sinful Colors collection line? I love to hear your comments.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope to see guys again on my next post. Bye!

Drugstore Madness Wednesday|Sally Hansen X-treme Wear

 

Sally hansen nail polish

Happy Wednesday Gorgeous! Another awesome find from the drugstore this week and I’m super excited to share this. Yes, you guess it right! It’s the Sally Hansen Nail Polish. Can you guess how much I paid for this bottle? Make a wild guess in the comment below and I’ll reveal the answer at the end of this post 🙂

xtreme nail polish

I picked this shade called Gunmetal since its calling to me. I got to get it and confident that this is the one for me. I have wore gunmetal eyeshadow shade from my Naked Palette and no on my nails. So, this is a new discovery for me! Am I slowly swaying to gunmetal colors! Who knows, right! I love trying new products to share it with all of you ❤

First time getting a dark shade of this tone and I’m loving it. This shade look terribly bad or heroic – reminds me of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider character.

I’m going to go kick some butt (just kidding!) or I’m bad and sexy kind of evening date (oh yay!). I honestly think this is a fun color to wear even for summer.

So, look for the shade 310 in Gunmetal if you like to step out of your comfort zone this summer for something real different. I’m going all the way out to show my pretty nail polish.

1 coat gunmetal

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear has very nice consistency in formula and it’s easy to apply. I love to try on 1 coat first and then add the second for better coverage. It’s gives a gorgeous metallic finish and on this look, I didn’t put on the top coat yet. I know, look amazing right!

2 coats

Since I wore it a week ago, the color stays put and not even a chip. So, I’m super happy with this great deal for only $0.99 on clearance. I don’t know how many of you guess it right the price I paid for it. I definitely think it’s a mega steal.

Well, that’s all I have for this week’s Drugstore Madness Wednesday and until next time, stay frugal-ti-ful!

What do you think of this week’s deal? Tell me your comment of what you think in the section below. Is it a bargain or no gain? I ❤ to hear your comments.

Thank you as usual for taking the time to read.
