Review: NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine

Today I am going to do a review of NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City. This is one of the items I got in my Holiday VoxBox. I am so glad I received this because you can never have to many lip glosses right?

This is what it says on the NYC page about this lipshine: seriously high-drama color at a seriously low price. Pure pigments give a 3-D effect that’s off-the-charts glossy. Tons of hot new shades.



The Nude York City is not only a cute name but also a great neutral shade that goes well with a ton of lipsticks or on its own.

The consistency is great because it is not sticky but also not too liquid. It is the perfect lip gloss consistency that will last a long time without sticking. It also has a great shimmery effect that makes your lips shine.




This has quickly become a staple in my makeup bag and I am so glad I got to try this product because now I can venture out and try other colors in the line.

As you probably know, the latest fashion trend for the summer is.. bracelets! In every color, material, and as many as you can stack up your arms. Basically, anything goes. I love the colorful beaded ones for the summer but prefer the more neutral ones like the white wrap from baublebar for all year round. I tried to find affordable options that are cute and trendy. Hope you like my picks.

Review: ByTerry Baume de Rose

The other day I got an email from beauty.com saying I was one of five winners of  their weekly facebook giveaway and I would be receiving a BY TERRY Baume de Rose . I was beyond excited as I had been wanting to try this balm for over a year but could not get myself to buy it as it retails for almost $60.

Now that I have used it for a few days I can review it. The packaging is cute but elegant and refined. A 10g / 0.35 oz. pot  in a pink and silver box contains a multi-protective, nutri regenerating SPF 15 balm with a subtle rose scent that you can use on your lips or your cuticles as the instructions say.

I love the consistency, smell, packaging, everything but the price. I really like the way my lips feel and you only have to apply it a few times a day. They also have a BY TERRY Baume de Rose Crystalline Bottle which I think its more practical for on the go.

I think now that I have tried it I won't be able to use other balms so I am pretty sure I will be splurging on this from time to time as I think a pot will last a few months. The good thing was that I got to try it before having to buy it so had I not liked it I wouldn't have been disappointed.



PS If you are curious.. I am wearing the mint nail polish from my previous blogspot http://capripor.blogspot.com/2011/05/mark-summer-nail-polishes.html

Obsessing Over: Lace

Lace

Lace by capripor

I have been obsessing over lace pieces for a while now and I actually own a couple of lace tops. Most of the lace pieces I'm drawn to are cream or white but there are also some really cute black and colored pieces that I like.

My favorite thing about lace pieces is how femenine and refined they are; even if you wear one that is not expensive you will look like a million bucks. They are also really versatile as you can wear the same piece during the day or night just by changing the accesories.

Mark Summer Nail Polishes

I recently placed my first ever order from Mark and I absolutely love the mini nail polishes I got. They come in sets of two and they have the season's trediest colors in mini bottles so you can try the colors without having to purchase a full bottle that you'll probably never finish; plus you get to try out two colors not just one. For the summer, they have the Ibiza collection and the nail polish colors are: an intensly deep coral red and a refreshing pastel minty green. I tried the coral one this past weekend an I love it! The picture is of two coats plus a Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.


The pictures above are the box in which the polishes come and the cutest little bottles!
