Chanel Quartz Polish

Quartz was actually my first ever Chanel nail polish. I have a whopping three so it’s not a sprawling collection by any means, but I wear this one the most out of them. It has a faint shimmer, and it goes from pale gold to a taupe in different lights. It’s understated but very classic at the same time. Peridot is more funky, but Quartz is a color I’ve thought about wearing on my wedding day (NOT ENGAGED, just in the phase where I have a Pinterest board called Wedding Shmedding). You can see on the bottle where I’m starting to make a dent in it, and that’s something I almost never do with polishes (because I have too many!).

And excuse my silly pose in the last shot. It was an accident but I loved that you could see the heart in my double ring. Plus you can kind of see what the polish looks like in indirect light.

ALSO, I picked up MAC Lip Prep + Prime and I’ll be reviewing it soon, so check back. Have a great weekend everybody!

Gloss & Buns

I hope everyone appreciates how hard it was for me to not name this post Hot Glossed Buns. As you can see, I am wearing a lip gloss and a hair bun. I have a few lip glosses that I’ve received in kits or as impulse buys, so I’m trying to use them up. I like the way glosses look, but I don’t like how quickly they tend to lose their shine. Maybe that’ll change when I pick up MAC’s Lip Prep + Prime later this week. I’m really excited about it.

Outfit was a bit too wrinkled to get a proper shot, but I thought my make-up was pretty good today. The products I used were:

Skin – Smashbox BB Cream in Fair //Blush – Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin // Eyeshadow – Revlon Colorstay in Blushed Wines // Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener // Mascara – Fairy Drops Scandal Queen // Eyeliner – Stila Convertible Eye Color in Indigo // Lipstick – Revlon Colorburst in Rosy Nude // Gloss – Stila Plumping Lip Glaze in Melon Mint
