Giveaway! Mac Nicki Minaj Lipstick!

Yay! Another giveaway!

As most of you all know bright lipsticks are really in for this season.  For those of you who tried to snag the Iris Apfel for Mac lipsticks, you probably noticed how fast they flew off the shelves.  In my mind, those bright colors kicked off the spring trend of the bright and bold lip.  Following suit are the endless collections that are releasing bold pink, coral and lavender colors! How exciting! Hence, it's not surprising Mac released their Nicki lipstick that boasts the bright trend of the season.

The Nicki lipstick in my mind is a combo between a bright pink/coral.  It also depends what kind of lip liner you pair it with to make the color pop either way.  I am excited to share this wonderful little giveaway with you guys!

I actually bought two so I have one for myself and for a giveaway.  In the picture below I have paired the lipstick with a bright pink Mac liner in the color embrace me:

My new Dior Stylish Moves Palette! So luxurious....

I received my Dior palette in the mail yesterday and I opened it up and marveled at it for a little bit.  I don't know, there's something so luxurious about Dior.  This palette was actually an exchange I did for a brown toned palette that I really didn't get much use out of.  Thank goodness Nordstrom has an awesome return policy!

I don't have a lot of luxury items in my makeup collection but it is nice to acquire a few pieces when you can.  The shadows are nicely pigmented and very blendable.  I wouldn't go as far as to say they are the most pigmented shadows I've used as I feel shadows like Wet N Wild and Inglot which are much less expensive produce wonderful color payoff.  I noticed barely any fallout though, but I really don't find fallout a huge problem anyways as I figure you just clean it up. lol :)

When deciding what palette I should exchange it for I noticed immediately that Dior really doesn't have a lot of matte shadows in their collection.  Everything pretty much has a slight shimmer with the exception of one palette which was a brown toned one.  Admittedly, I did feel little more "fancier" wearing Dior on my eyes today.

Spring Nail Colors!

Sorry I've been so MIA lately.  Between trying to manage my YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter, it seems like I can never keep up and unfortunately my blog has been terribly neglected.  It seems easier for me to update my Facebook page more frequently.  I have been taking quite a bit of pictures of things, so I am going to attempt to play catch up on here.

With spring upon us I have gotten really into spring nail polishes.  To be perfectly honest I have been OBSESSED with nail polish lately.  I wanted to share some of my favorite colors I've been wearing lately.

Essence (mint green) in the color "You Belong To Me" with Confetti "Ice Ice Baby" 
Greens seem to be really in right now.  I have been obsessed with Essence nail polish and even better they are only $.99 at Ulta!

Essence "A Lovely Secret" with CND "Sapphire Sparkle" on top
This lovely blue based purple is such a fun color with a hint of sparkle on top!

 Revlon "Flirt"
Such a pretty girly pink that really just "pops" out at you! Love this color!

Sally Hansen "Lively Lilac"
I am absolutely in love with this color, this plummy lavender color is just screaming spring to me!

Essie "Pink A Boo"
This is a lovely soft pale pink with a touch of iridescent sparkle
Also used a Konad stamp on my nail-I've been recently obsessed with nail stamping!

I also have a few orange/peach/coral nail polishes that are in my queue to try out.  Coral also seems to be a big hit this season too.  What colors are you guys enjoying this spring?

Hope you had a great weekend.  And again, apologies for being so absent on my blog I plan on playing catch up soon.  I also have a fun blog giveaway coming up this week to so stay tuned!

As well, I post more on my YouTube cannel and Facebook page so stop on by there and say hi sometime!
