Mani Monday~Zoya Textured Magical Pixie Dust

        I am a purple girl, it's been my favorite color since I could tell colors so I collect purple nail polishes. I have 200 right now and no Zoyas. Zoya is a top nail polish brand and they had a huge sale recently so I figured I would try them.  I found this and fell in love!

        This is Zoya's textured Pixie Dust in Arlo, it's a new 2014 color. They describe it a glittering violet amethyst that is a matte, textured magical pixie dust holographic formula.

Textured nail polish is so amazing and it tends to last such a long time. It is just like it looks, textured and it also feels like grains of sand. I put on seche vite as a top coat and it's still gorgeous with shine.

Holographic nail polish means it's a highly pigmented polish that shines brightly and turns colors in the sunlight. I just jumped on board with this trend and I am so stuck on it, it is simply amazing! Here is my manicure...

   I am so happy with how it turned out! I also bought Ginni (pink) and Vega (blue)  Check them out here at Zoya Magical Pixie Dust and tell me what ones you like :)

Envy Derm Exfoliate Review

I really did like this product although I was nervous at first when I opened it. What is this and what does it do?  

Well it's pretty much and exfoliator for your skin without paying a ton of money! I've had microdermabrasion done many times for some deep acne scars from my teenage years and it didn't help at all. This seems to be doing the same as that system and it leaves my skin feeling good. I always apply moisturizer afterwards as well. 

I plan on updating this i a few weeks to show the progress! 

Product Description:
Exfolimate is a new breakthrough in Skincare technology. Using patented smooth edge micro groove technology, exfolimate gently releases dirt and oil embedded beneath your skin's surface. This radical deep-cleanse
dramatically improves tone and texture, while reducing pore size, oily patches, dry areas and visible signs of ageing.
Use for a minute daily for fast rejuvenation or as part of your full beauty regime to transform your complexion. In addition to deeper cleansing, exfolimate offers users enhanced exfoliation and superior moisturisation by
improving the absorption of Skincare products. It's safe for all skin types and leaves skin feeling softer and noticeably brighter and refreshed.

Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Lip Crayons and Wonder Gloss Nail Polish

I am so excited to be able to review some more items from the Prestige Cosmetics line. They are amazing products and it is so fun to work with them. I love dicovering makeup products that I haven't seen or have never tried and loving them! I really fell in love with their lip crayons so I was so glad I got 2 other colors that were sent to me to try out.

Bare It All

Bare It All is a very nice nude color and I think every woman needs a nude lipstick. Even if you don't wear lipstick regularly, having a nude color adds a pop to your look without going overboard. Bare it All has the neutral color that I've been looking for and it goes on smoothly. I either find one that isn't very visable or it looks light and isn't at all. It is afterall called a crayon and it looks and applies like one too! It gives me a smooth, flawless cover that lasts throughout the day.

                                                                         Wine Not?

Wine Not? Is of course a wine colored lip crayon. It's such a gorgeous color that does remind me of the purple grapes used in wine. It has such a dark intensity but also it has a tiny tint of red to it as well. It's hard to tell in the picture as well so describing it is a bit hard. Bottom line is it's Gorgeous! :) You can see all of the colors here as well Prestige Lip-crayons

Prestige Cosmetics also has a line of nail polish as well. Surely you know I am a HUGE nail polish fanatic, collecter, hoarder whatever you want to say haha. I am very picky with the brands I buy due to colors, consistancy and of course quality. I must say that I am so pleasantly surprised by this polish! It goes on smooth and theconsistancy isn't too thick or too thin. I applied 2 coats of each polish below and  I plan on trying more, I am in Love! Check out all of their colors here Prestige Cosmetics Nail-lacquer

This blue color reminded me of the Ocean, it's perfect for Summer!

                              This polish was more coral than red, perfect for anytime of the year

               Go to Prestige and order these products today and you will not regret it! They are offering free shipping with $25 orders. I really hope to bring you more from Prestige Cosmetics as well. They are my go to place for amazing makeup that lasts :)

2014 Summer Must Haves #2!

Oh where have all these amazing products been all my life?! Haha I received these in the mail this weekend and had so much fun trying them out for you.  

Pur Minerals I am just falling in love with. They have so many amazing products and I am always pleasantly surpsrised with what I receive from them. 

Mally has turned out to be another top makeup company for me as well. The products are very long lasting which means I don't have to apply them as often as I normally would and when you have 3 kids, that's a blessing in itself lol 

Here's a closer look at all the goodies I received...

Pur Minerals Cream Blush in Flirt

This blush was absoluteley amazing! I used my blush brush to apply it with though you could use your fingers as well. It's very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot which means more product for more uses ;)  The color is Flirt and it's a bright, cheerful pink that pops which is perfect for Summer.

Pur Minerals Cream Blush in Sassy
This color is Sassy and it is darker than Flirt as you can see so use it very sparingly because it as well is very pigmented. I loved it but prefered it to a more Autumn/Winter look. That is probably because I have light Irish skin but anyone sould try it to see how it looks on them of course.

Both can be found at

Soap and Paper Factory Solid Perfume in Lavender

I love the scent lavender in everything. Candles, air fresheners, Perfumes, soap etc. Lavender has stress relieving properties which lets face it, we all need. There are many many uses for lavender which you can look at here I was so surprised at all the used that I decided to use lavender much more than I do now. This perfume was amazing because not only did it smell like the sweet, floral smell of lavender but it also was a solid fragrance. With a solid perfume you can just rub it on you and not worry about a spray that tens to fly everywhere. Found at

                       These are 2 of Mallys High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pens. They are pretty unique in their own ways. Simple take off the lid and twist the knob to get the lipstick onto the brush, then brush it on your lips for a full application. This lipstick is also a 4-in-1 product that includes a lip primer, lip stick, lip gloss and lip liner all in one for getting that perfect look without using 4 different sticks.

                                                                    Pure Genius!
    Starburst is a sheen yet shimmery pink which feels great on your lips and is perfect for the Summer. Apricot is the same except it has a peachy tint to it which I really loved. You can't find peach lipstick everyday! Here are the pictures of them

All of these products are fantastic and I hope they make you as happy as they've made me! What products are you looking forward to trying?
