Nail Polish Galore! Collection Review + Video Details


Hello, everyone! I told myself I would never film another nail polish collection video after the first one that I took down because of all the horrid comments and the lack of visibility of the actual polishes, but I received a flood of requests for this video recently so I gave in today and filmed it. The nail polish racks are from Amazon.com, seller Beauticom and I've linked you to the product HERE (not an affiliate link). They lowered the price since I purchased them! Also, please note this video took me over 6 hours just to edit, so please watch it in HD and full screen to see the details of the polishes :)
I do wish I could have posted swatches of each of the colors, but applying all of these colors to my nails would be an incredibly daunting task. It would take me several weeks, if not months, to swatch all these polishes and I simply do not have the time at the moment. I did mention all my favorites, so I hope you give them a try!



Make-up Worn:
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation in B40
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
Tarte Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess
Cle de Peau Eyebrow Pencil in 204 [See full review HERE]
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadow in Platinum
Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Cognac Sable
Lancome Artliner in Black
NARS Long Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto
Armani ETK Waterproof Mascara in Black
Ardell Wispies False Eyelashes
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Palpitante [See full review & more swatches HERE]

Lenses:
Clear prescription lenses (no color)

Shirt:

Armani Fall 2012 Makeup Collection + Maestro Foundation Review Video Details


Finally, the time to review Armani's Fall 2012 makeup is here! It has been a long process of waiting for the new Maestro 'Fusion' foundation to be shipped to me, but it was totally worth it.. so worth it that I bought a second bottle. Now I can match my skin regardless of how fair I get in the winter or how tan I get in the winter! I can use rich hydrating creams under it, and it doesn't accentuate pores. What's not to love? The review is long because I don't get around to reviewing Armani products much. I wanted to be thorough, even more so than usual ;) Just keep in mind the tutorial starts at 10:29. Feel free to skip the review if you're just interested in seeing how the foundation applies!



Makeup Worn/Used in Tutorial:
Armani Maestro Foundation in 4.5 and 6.5
Armani Maestro Eraser in 3
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Warm Natural
Shiseido Natural Brow Pencil in Natural Black

Armani Eyes to Kill WP Mascara in Black
Velour Lashes in TDotOhh

Updated Travel Makeup Bags - Las Vegas Edition Video Details


Hello, everyone! I am going to Las Vegas this weekend, so I figured it was perfect timing for this requested video. I am actually not a fan of Vegas because I'm not big on the clubbing scene (too hot and cramped), I don't drink much anymore (too many empty calories), and I'm not a gambler (too much wasted money), but I'm going to keep my best friend company because she has a conference to attend! Friends can't let friends be lonely in Sin City. And Vegas has great food.. you guys know how much I love good food! I'm going to try to track down some macarons, mmm. Anyway, I hope this video was helpful for those who requested it!
