Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment

Love the color!

My Impressions:

I am a huge fan of highly pigmented shadows (my chocolate skin loves it!) and always excited to try new products and colors. Ipsy is FINALLY sending colors appropriate for my skin tone and this is by far my favorite. Sierra Nevada is absolutely beautiful and if you love shadows with a silky smooth application, then give the Naked Pigments a try. Heck, I love all Naked products!

Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer Oil

Description from Website:

The Power of a Primer. The Luxury of a Face Oil.

Fall in love with your skin — before you put on makeup — with the first ever primer specially formulated in a lightweight, lustrous oil. This fast-absorbing hero blend of 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils penetrate instantly to moisturize your face for seamless foundation application with a dewy, youthful finish. In fact, you might think twice before you reach for your makeup.

  • Softens complexion to make foundation look like skin
  • Instantly absorbs and adds radiance
  • 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils including moisturizing jojoba and calming chamomile
  • Apply a few drops to split-ends, cuticles, elbows and clavicle for a dewy, youthful sheen


My Impressions:

Honestly, I’m skeptical. I haven’t tried it yet because I already have oily skin and don’t want more oil on my face. However, I’m going to use it on my curly locks and see how well it works on my ends.




Jor’el Parker Eau so Divine

Description from Website:

Feel like you’ve been whisked away with Eau so Divine! This calming perfume has notes of sandalwood, lily of the valley, Egyptian myrrh and Madagascar vanilla for a truly exotic scent experience.

  • Calms the mind and soothes the soul
  • New and fresh scent that frees the spirit
  • Exotic notes


My Impressions:

This is a heavy scent; however, if used lightly it’s a pleasant smell. If you have allergies or don’t like vanilla, use with caution.




Margaret Dabbs London Miniature Crystal Nail File

Description from Website:

he Margaret Dabbs London Glass Crystal Nail File is slim and elegant, but most importantly, effective to use. The Crystal Nail File will immediately provide a smoother, finer finish to your nails. The fine abrasive crystal finish protects the nails, making them less prone to splitting and can be used on finger and toe nails.


My Impressions:

The Glass Crystal Nail File is awesome! Thick and easy to use, so far I’ve loved it.
