What's New This Week? shoes, hair and makeup

Here is another WNTW video. In this video you will see the swatches of the Inglot eyeshadows I showed you in my Black Friday haul video. I will also show two new hair products that I purchased from Naturalista Cosmetics and my new Butter London polishes. The video starts off with my new darling shoes from Dsw.

Whole Truth Solutions Masques- Review

In this video I reviewed three masques from Whole Truth Solutions , a company known for creating soaps. Now that they have stepped into the world of masques I was eager to get my hands on a few of them. If you look at the "clay therapy" section on their website, you will see that they offer 5 different masques. Based on your skin type, you can select the masque that will work best for you. I received Blueberry Chamomile and Pomegranate Rose from Whole Truth Solutions. After trying out the masques I purchased Strawberry Hibiscus with Chrysanthemum on my own. The masques are generally $12 but they are on sale for $10.50 right now. As mentioned in the video, these natural dry masques just need water and then you can mix it up and apply it to your skin. I have sensitive combination skin and these masques worked well for me.

Tarte's Perfect Gift

Tarte has come up with the perfect gift for the beauty lover in your life. For a mere $48 you can purchase a makeup kit which includes a purse, 18 eyeshadows, one lip color, one blush, one bronzer and one shimmering powder. You easily snap in the palette of your choice to take your makeup on the go. Like all Tarte products, these makeup items are made free of parabens, pthalates, sls, mineral oil and other yucky unnecessary ingredients.
Check out the video to learn more about these pigmented shadows.
I swatched these colors in the same order in which they appear in the palette.
This palette is named Nine To Five which includes the blush.

Here is another view you can see the top colors by my knuckles a bit better in this shot.

Next up is the palette named Walk in the Park which includes the bronzer.

The final palette is Girls' Night Out and it features the shimmering powder.

Here is the peppermint infused lip project that also comes with the kit. Now don't be scared by what seems like a really bright pink color, once you smooth this product across your lips it almost looks clear.

I can't forget about the purse so here it goes:

Once inside of the purse you will find card holders and two snaps used to secure your makeup palette in the purse.

Check it out:

Check out the video for more info including, the length of the chain on the purse, a view of the makeup by numbers guide that comes with this kit and more!

Seriously cute kit, right?

**Thanks to the Tarte pr rep. who sent this product for me to share with the world.

NOTW- Nude

This flesh toned beauty (well not exactly my flesh but you know what I mean) before your eyes is named "Tea With The Queen" by Butter London. For a mere $14 this nude polish can adorn your nails. I fell in love with this polish after my first application. One coat will do the trick but I am rocking two coats in this picture. This really makes me want to try "All Hail The Queen" by Butter London because it is almost the same color but with some sparkle thrown in. (Scratch that last sentence because on the Butter London site they actually make the comparison between All Hail the Queen and Yummy Mummy not Tea With the Queen.)
What your favorite nude?
Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend.

NOTW- Finally the perfect RED

For years I have been saying that red just isn't my color but alas, I have found the PERFECT red nail polish. Knees Up by Butter London priced at $14.00, is a brilliant metallic red. This picture does not really do it justice, but this is the best my camera could do in this lighting. You can certainly make this a one coat application but in the pictures below I have on two coats. I am not wearing a top coat and this polish shines on its own. Much like Zoya, Butter London polishes are free of carcinogens.

NOTW (Nail of the week)- Sparkle Mania & Sales Into

Hello Ladies
Today I am rocking "Rosie Lee" from Butter London. Their polishes are priced at $14 but I got it during Black Friday so I did get a small discount. This company is 3 free which means it is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP. This polish is free of carcinogens!
Yes, this polish is in the darker side of the pink family and although I always say I don't like pink, I couldn't resist this one! It took two to three coats to achieve this look and I am not wearing a top coat.

Sales Information
Dooney and Bourke is on day 3 of their 12 days of saving program. Each day different bags are revealed to be on the list of discounted items, some items up to 50% off. Here is the link to day 3 the sale is only valid for 1 day until midnight while supplies last so shop early.
