Revlon "Minted" Nail Polish Review!

Revlon's Nail Polish in "Minted"

Hi everyone! Sorry I have been gone from my blog for a while. But hopefully I'm back! So today I decided to do a blog post on a nail polish I have been adoring for spring! It's this lovely mint green color from Revlon. (very affordable!) I picked it up at my local Walgreens thinking it looked like a gorgeous pastel color for spring and Easter, and boy, it sure is! In these pictures I have 2 coats on with a topcoat over it. It was pretty easy to apply, sometimes it could get a bit streaky though, so be careful. But other than that I loved it! It stayed on my nails for a week & a half before it started to look gnarly and I had to remove it! So, I definitely recommend picking this product up! :)

Have a great day!

Wonder Woman Mac Collection

I'm sure all you MAC fans out there know that MAC came out with a wonder woman collection! I wanted to do this blog post a while back, but I just got so behind! Anyway, I only got 2 things. A blush and a lipglass. I also wanted one of the MSFs but unfortunately they were sold out. Anywho, First thing I got was the lipglass in Athena's Kiss.

I don't know if you can tell by the picture but this wand is HUGE! Yup, the lipglasses from this collection were jumbo sized. And boy, were they jumbo! Oh, and the lipglasses were $20.

Here's the swatch. It's a gorgeous purpley/fuchsia with a blue undertone. Love! Super pigmented too.

The next item I got was the blush duo in Amazon Princess. $24.

Gorgeous! Isn't that hot pink beautiful? And that darker color swatches more as a raspberry color. Love that. These blushes are a satin finish- but i noticed the raspberry color is a tad more shimmery.

Swatches for the blush. I know the swatch isn't too good, sorry. :'( but hopefully you can see the colors alright!

So that's all I got from the MAC Wonder Woman collection! I really like these items and I recommend! :)

Sephora Hello Kitty Kohl Eyeliner Kit

Sephora came out with a new 'Hello Kitty' collection. And it is SO adorable! I ran into Sephora to pick up a new Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner and I saw this set in the very front of the store. It was 28 dollars for 7 gorgeous colors. What a deal! So I decided to get this instead.

The colors are (from left to right): Goodnight Dreams, Grape Juice, Chocolate Milk, Happy Cloud, Blue Sky, Bicycle, Blueberry. (Black, Purple, Brown, Pearl, Bright Blue, Green, Navy)

The quality of these eyeliners are great too! Super smooth and easy to apply. It doesn't pull your eye at all. Also very pigmented. And it stays put! I would definitely repurchase this!


(No Flash)

I would go out and check out these eyeliners if your on the search for some good colors and good quality pencils!

I was also tempted to buy a few more things. The Hello Kitty Perfume smells great! And those nail polish bottles? Adorable! I also wanted to purchase that "Apple Balm" lip gloss and a cheek tint... But I controlled myself and bought what I went there to buy. *Pats myself on the back*

Anyway, I'm really impressed with these eyeliners and I'm glad I got the chance to try them! I will be using them very often!

Swatches & Mini Review! Maybelline Shine Sensational Lipsticks

^Pansy modeling with the lipstick

I got this lipstick from CVS last week. I got it for 50% off because they were having that big sale where a lot of products were 50-70% off! I got the color "Plaza Pink." Which is a mauve-y pink color! So pretty!
The color is very pigmented. It's a very natural color to my lips, it just enhances them and makes them feel smooth. Speaking of smooth, DANG, this lipstick is slick! It feels so creamy and nice. Mmmmm..

It's a tad bit drying. Not overwhelmingly drying though! Just apply a thin layer of lipbalm before applying and your lips will feel moisturized! :)

So overall, I totally recommend this lipstick! Deff pick it up next time your at the drugstore!

Skin Care

For this blog post I thought I'd share all the skin care products I use! I'm going to post a picture then I little description below it. Okay, let's get started!

This product above is my face cleanser. It's call
ed the Aveeno "POSITIVELY RADIANT" Cleanser. I use this
in the shower at night before I go to bed. I love this cleanser because it doesn't dry out my skin and it is very gentle.

When I wake up in the morning I like to clean my face again. This is the Aveeno "POSITIVELY RADIANT" cleansing pads. One side is soft and the other side is gritty so it will gently exfoliate your skin. I really like these for morning because I think it just makes my face look fresh for the day.

This is my Equate "ABSOLUTELY BEAMING" Moisturizer. This is basically Wal-Marts dupe for the Aveeno "Positively Radiant" Moisturizer. I decided to buy this one because the Aveeno one was $15 but this one was only $5. It does it's job by moisturizing. :)

This is my Clean & Clear "DAILY PORE" Toner. This toner leaves a really cool feeling on my face and that is why I like it. I use this every other day because I have dry skin in the winter. After you apply this make sure you moisturize your face right after it dries!

And last but not least is my exfoliator! This is the Clean & Clear "SOFT- IN SHOWER FACIAL". This leaves a clean, minty feel on your face after you use it. Basically what you do is put the product all over your face, wait one minute, then rinse it off while exfoliating your face.

So, that is it! I hope this helped you! Have a great day! xoxo

Fitness Routine

Hi blogees. I thought I would do a post on my fitness routine and how I keep myself in shape. Most of you probably do not know that I run track. I run the 200 meter dash, 400 meter dash, and I also do pole vault. Track season is in the spring-early summer so how do I keep in shape during the fall and winter? Well, I'm going to share with you right now!
To the right is my shoes. They are the BROOKS Adrenaline GTS 11. I bought
them for $99.99 at FinishLine. Beside them I have my under armor socks that I bought t
oday. They are supposed to flick away the sweat from your foot preventing blisters & such. Pretty coo
l, eh?
Well anyway, back to my 'fitness routine.' Every week I run a minimum of 2.5 miles. On Mondays and Fridays I go to the gym and run 10 laps each time that I go. At the gym I go to, their track is 200 meters. 1600 meters = 1 mile. Which means 8 laps around that track would equal 1 mile. Since I'm running 10 laps it would equal 1.25 miles. Since I run 10 laps twice a week that means I run 2.5 miles. (Hopefully that made sense, ha ha) And addition to those laps I also take a speed and agility class at my gym.
The speed and agility class is once a week for one hour. They basically have you running different courses the whole time. In one of the courses there is two cones. You doing pushups until the coach says "go." Right when he says go you have to jump into your running stance and sprint to the first cone, then you turn completely around (sounds harder than it seems, Isometimes slip when I do this XD) then you run back, turn around, then sprint as hard as you can to the last cone. Now, you are racing with other people too. :)
So the speed and agility class really keeps my heart working. That course was only one of the many.. :)
I thought I might as well throw in how I keep in shape during the summer. I have an in-ground pool in my backyard, so I basically swim every day. I have been swimming since I was about three years old. Swimming works so many things- your arms, legs, abs, breathing, SO MUCH! So that is a really, really good way to get some exercise!
So that is basically it! I hope this helped you! May you all have a happy week!
