When Nouveau Cheap mentioned that Payless ShoeSource would start carrying beauty products, well that widened my eyes. I hate to say this but I never had any interest in entering a Payless shoe store. It had nothing to do with the shoes, I just had no reason to buy anything from there. However, since I saw one while shopping recently, I entered and noticed the brand spanking new display of cosmetics and bath products.
The name evokes a romantic dinner under a moonlit starry sky slurping the same string of spaghetti with your lovely and embarrassingly glance away as your lips meet. Okay, I was thinking of Bella Notte from the animated film Lady and the Tramp but this polish actually conjures up romance and sophistication. Maybe, because it comes from Borghese, a once cosmetic counter brand that now markets its nail products at drugstores.
As you know, I am trying to use all my Faces Cosmetics eyeshadows, get acquainted with the colors so I can get to know them better. I said I would use the random.org widget to pick out my colors but on this one, I decided to use my own color combo since my face would be readily seen in public.
No, the post isn't about baking or eating; it's about turning your eyeshadows into eyeliners. There are three basic products that can do this: water, eyeliner sealant, and non-oily eye make up remover. Yes, the third is correct but it has to be a non-oily one. And, the end result can vary due to the type of eyeshadow used, is it a cake eyeliner, a regular eyeshadow, or a loose one?
I like eyeliner and I probably have enough for a couple of pounds of potatoes (anyone get the connection?). I told myself many times that I wouldn't buy more eyeliner when I am standing at the L.A. Splash Cosmetics display at Ulta, but the colors are so pretty and sparkly that I succumb. For any of you that are wary of all the glitter, the website does sell matte eyeliners and metallic eyeliners in a plethora of colors. My Ulta does not carry these which leaves me a bit miffed but if it did I would be buying them left and right!
I seem to be on a nail polish kick lately and I can't help it because every time I go to the store there is a bunch of new colors! I saw the brand-spanking new display at Ulta and thought to myself, I don't have any taupe neutral colors.
I bought the Sally Hansen Night Lights a very long time ago, so long ago that I know it has been at least 3 years ago. I bought this one because I could no longer find my favorite holographic topcoat Northern Lights at any of the beauty supply stores that I frequented for some reason.
I like blue nail polish and this one looked so pretty in the display L.A. Splash Blue Splash polish, the shimmering cobalt sheen that glistened so dreamily like the water waves of the ocean during a quiet sunset.
