China Glaze Anchors Away

 I was not into this collection at all when the promo photos just came out.
However, the other night I was browsing AllLaqueredUp & decided I needed just a couple!
I ended up with Sea Spray and White Cap.
Both are beautiful paired and on their own.

If Nars Albatross was a Nail Polish, it would be white cap.
Did you pick up anything from Anchors Away?

Nails Nails Nails!

Sometimes I go through phases. For a few months I will be obsessed with makeup, the next few months I have love obsessions with nail polish!
I used to have no interest in grooming or keeping up with my nails what so ever - 
until I wandered over to the nail board on Makeupalley. I was
shocked and amazed that many of those ladies do their own nails, including
cuticle care, polish application, and shaping. 
I got jealous and started caring for my own.
Months later I had strong healthy nails and my once cut up cuticles
were smoother than ever. 

This is the first mani I have photographed in a while. Working in retail while going to school has done a number
on my nails. They break, peel, and turn my cuticles raw. I am trying my best to be mindful of my nails while working
and being extra careful with them!

This is Zoya's Charla over China Glaze's Flying High fro the Up and Away collection

I could not stop looking at my nails when I had this mani on!

MACs Sketch Eyeshadow

 No matter how much I try to steer myself away from buying JUST Mac, I always come back to this brand.
When it comes to makeup, I feel I should try a wide range of brands and such but there are just
some items I cannot resist.

One eyeshadow I kept hearing rave reviews about on Makeupalley was Sketch.
I put off buying this shadow for a while because I thought I owned all the
purples I would need. I was wrong. Sketch is unlike any other purple I own.
I can apply this shadow 2 separate ways to achieve 2 different

In a fit of boredom I experimented with this color a bit and smoked it out into my outer
V as well as into the crease. The more I blended it, the more plummy it appeared.
Before this look I had just popped it into the outer V a bit and it appeared a gorgeous burgundy brown
shade with a hint of red.
Face: MUFE Velvet +

EyesRicepaper (lid)
Sketch (crease,  outer V, lash line)
Shale blended around sketch
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

Cheeks: Korres Natural Blush
Nars Albatross

Lips: MAC Syrup Lipstick

Wonders for my Skin

For a while, I have had great luck with my skin **knocks on wood.**
My skin is on the normal side with an occasional breakout, but even that is rare.

However, I do have one problem when it comes to my skin.
The problem - WHITE HEADS!
More so than not, I have these small raised skin colored bumps
around my chin. Right before Christmas they got really bad
so I ordered a product that I had great luck with in the past
as well as a new cleanser that I have never tried before.
If you followed my old blog, you may remember the products I reviewed by a company
called Cellnique. Since then I have ran out of my Skin Action Sebum Gel & repurchased
along with one of their cleansers.

The Sebum Gel does a really good job at getting rid of, and preventing future
whiteheads. The active ingredient is Potassium Azelaoyl Diglycinate (PAD), which keeps
sebum, or oils, under control. Within days of using this gel, a majority of the bumps on
my skin disappeared.

The second product that has really helped my skin is Cellnique's Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Before this I was using
Clinique's foaming cleanser which I found dried my skin. This is essentially the same thing, but Celnique's is more gentle on the skin. It does a nice job at cleansing my face but not stripping it of its natural oils.

Finally, to exfoliate, my new Clarisonic (in pink) does wonders :) I recently received this for Christmas
and I love it. I don't use it everyday but when I do, my skin feels extra smooth. 

The combination of these three products has really helped the appearance of my skin.
While they are not the cheapest of products, my skin is something I take pride in
and am willing to splurge to keep it healthy looking.

Revlon Grow Luscious

Last week I decided it was time to try a new mascara.
I have used Maybelline's Full N' Soft for ages - but wanted
something different this time around.

I read very mixed reviews about Grow Luscious but decided to give it a go anyway for 2 reasons
1. It doesn't have plastic bristles
2. The brush is HUGE!
A lot of people dislike the large brush but it's one thing
about the brush that I love. I like that it is very tapered 
at the top so I can use the end of it to get to my inner corner lashes.

When the wand is taken out of the tube there is no EXTRA mascara on the wand.
For me, that is one of the things I despise about many mascara's - I
hate when you pull out a wand and you have to wipe all of this excess
mascara on the side. 

Application is good. I find I need about two coats to get the look I want, which is typical.
For me, the mascara does not provide a dramatic change in my lashes.
I find it provides a very subtle enhancement - some extra fluff and a little bit of
length. I tend to prefer mascara's that do that for an everyday look.

Throughout the day I can touch my lashes and they don't feel stiff and I have had 
no problems with flaking!

Hope this review was helpful !!
I am leaving for Disney World tomorrow. I will try to get another post up
before I leave. If not I will be back January 3rd.

Have  great New Year!!!!!
