Crazy For Corals

 Coral is huge this year, it has been seen on just about everything. From furniture, to wall deco, nails, clothes, makeup, jewelry, wedding cakes…the list can go on and on. These are my favorite must haves.



Benefit CORALista  Box Blush



Take tropical pleasure trip with CORALista. Sweep this coral pink powder onto cheeks anytime, anywhere. Move your brush to the beat & turn up the heat

Pros
  • Easy to apply
  • Good pigmentation
  • Blends easily
  • Looks natural
  • Doesn't appear cakey 
Cons
  • Too shimmery 
Best Uses
  • Anytime
  • Hint of color
  • Daytime 
  • Contouring & highlighting
  • Nighttime
Thoughts-  I love this blush. The color is nice and natural with my skin tone, but don't apply to heavy make sure to tap  brush a couple times. It also smells great. You get a good amount of product too, and it comes in a box with high sides so you don't loose any product from tapping. One con is the brush you get with it. I didn't like it at all and tossed it the first time I used it, but I already have a blush brush anyway so I didn't care. I use this practically everyday.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this

 Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss In Runaway

You want a super-shiny gloss, but can't stand the sticky texture, right? Wait till you feel the soft, cushiony texture of this gloss by Urban Decay.. Lip Junkie stays put longer than other glosses, but never feels gummy or gooey. It comes in a range of pretty amazing shades, and the color payout is amazing. Take your pick from sheer pretty neutrals, kick-a** brights, or glimmering near-black. And the flavor? Think yummy wedding mints...a sweet mint with a little zing that makes breath feel fresh. Urban Decay's bonus ingredient, Maxi-Lip, even plumps lips an average of 40% when used daily for a month. (Maxi-Lip is a non-irritant plumping ingredient that doesn't sting or inflame your lips like other short-term plumpers can.) Urban Decay's superstar ingredient can actually help your lips become better defined, super hydrated and full. YES, PLEASE! Urban Decay's sleek gloss tube is molded, not crimped, no more worrying about lip gloss explosions in your bag. (Finally!) Urban Decay finished it off with a soft angled tip that lays down a smooth, precise application without mess. This gloss will hook even you jaded junkies. All shades but Heavy and Naked are vegan.

Thoughts-Very glossy pretty color. Not too bright but enough for spring....This nail polish does what it claims in terms of scent. It leaves a scent on your nails after it dries.
