Essie's Smooth Sailing Mani

This polish is very unique in my collection. I don't have any other periwinkle type colors. Also there is very finely milled glitter in the polish that gives it a beautiful sheen. I actually got these done at the shop, but brought this polish in for them to put on me and my manicurist was gushing over the color and wanted to go out and buy it. I was probably my favorite out of the Brazilliant collection from Essie.

NYX Cream Blush in Glow

This is my very first cream blush! I like it a lot. I tend to wear blush colors that look like this (MAC Hipness, MAC Marine Life, Nars Orgasm). It's a very natural color that would compliment a variety of skin tones. It was a safe choice for my first cream blush, but it does make me want to try more.

2 NYX Lipsticks

 Castle (It looks a little darker in this picture than in real life.)

 NYX (yes, that's the name of the color)

I love both of these colors! Castle had to grow on me a little bit because I thought it would be a bit more pink than it was. NYX is such an awesome color! I love this orange! It's so bright and the shimmer adds nice dimension. It's a wearable orange. Castle is not as wearable. I'd probably put a gloss over it to blend it out. NYX lipsticks are great because they are cheap and very pigmented. They are worth a try if you can find them near you.
