Excuse the profanity in the title, but for the first time in my life I’m purposely following a “fashion trend,” therefore I felt it necessary to go over the top.
So if you follow fashion blogs or read magazines, then you have probably read all of them tootin’ and hollerin’ about how pastels are in for the spring. The thing that gets me though is that, aren’t pastels ALWAYS the “thing” for spring. Whatever.
Anywhosizzles, back to my post. So this week I’m feeling very spring-y so I wanted to wear a fun color that reflected that. Hence my lavenderish nails 🙂
I love purple so of course it would only be fitting that my first post about nail polish be purple.
Color: The color that I am wearing is called “Fun in the Sun” by L.A Colors. It’s a gorgeous pastel purple with a semi-matte finish.
Lasting Power: Okay here is the bummer. I put this nail polish on and it chipped within a day. While this could be because I didn’t wear a top coat or base coat, I have found LA Colors to be a very cheap company. BUT, I am okay with that because I hate wearing the same nail polish for more than a week….don’t ask me why…it’s just a “thing” that I have.
Higher End: If you are a nail polish snob and refuse to wear anything worth $1.50 from the drugstore, O.P.I has a great dupe called “A Grape Fit.”
Overall: Obsessesed with this color, can’t get enough of it! By the way, fellow bloggers and readers, this is probably the simplest you will ever see my nails. As I stated in my confessions blog, I love the bling, but being weary of scaring off my readers, I toned it down for you, but as you can see, I couldn’t resist a little accent glitter 🙂
Well hello condensed glitter in a bottle. Having fallen’ in love with the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, when this foundation came out I was the first to run out and try it. I thought, “hey its the same company, same formula, AND IT HAS A PUMP!” Brought it home, put it on, and then shinned worse than Edward Cullen from Twilight 🙂
Coverage: The coverage for this foundation is great. Like most Revlon foundations, the coverage is easily buildable and the overall effect is great. Its sits well on the skin and as advertised, it photos really nicely.
Packaging: IT HAS A PUMP! If you read my review of the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, then you know that I love the product but hate that it has no pump making it very messy and unhygienic to deal with. Well I think Revlon secretly heard my prayers and put a pump on this product. The perfect amount is dispensed each time, and you can easily add half pumps.
Glitter: I get it, the glitter is supposed to reflect light, therefore giving off an airbrushed and flawless look in photos. However, for those of us aren’t Adriana Lima and running from photo shoot to photo shoot, the added glitter is pointless. Although some people say that the glitter is not that much of a distraction, for my oily skin it was overkill.
Pricing: If Revlon wants to remain accessible to the masses,then they have to find a way to remain drugstore budget friendly. I bought this product for $15 USD and returned it not only because I didn’t like it, but also I felt bad for how much I spent on it.
Overall: I would recommend this foundation to those who know they will be photographed a lot. be it for picture day at school, a wedding, clubbing or if you just like glitter on your skin, then go ahead invest in this product
