FingerPaints Dream I Can Fly + Crystal Springs

Hi everyone! Today I have a very sparkly review for you. I started with FingerPaints Dream I Can Fly. DICF is a bright aqua creme polish. I used three coats with this polish. Then I added 3 coats of Crystal Springs. Crystal Springs is a clear polish with aqua glitter and silver chunky glitter. These two match perfectly! Love the subtle sparkle that adds a touch of fun, would be perfect for an accent nail.

My Take On: Korres Black Pine Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Night Cream

Hi everyone- today I have a fun review to share. I was able to try out Korres Black Pine Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Night Cream. Korres uses Black Pine trees- which have survived the harshest conditions while continually improving their defense systems, being essentially ageless.

This cream is so smooth and soft, I wanted to put it on my hands :). After washing my face, I put the cream out and definitely felt more moisturized. The cream has eight unique extracts to provide instant lifting. I could feel the difference after just a few days.

My Take On: Jenna Hipp Wine Me, Dine Me

Hi everyone! Today I have a review of Jenna Hipp Wine Me, Dine Me. This polish is great for fall/winter- it's a deep grape purple shade. One coat could even be enough, but I used three. I swear, dark purple is becoming a winter neutral these days! Application was great with this too!

Pink + Glitter Half Moon Mani

Hey guys! Have some fun nail art to share today. Normally I'd say this is a little too summery for October, but it was 85 today! I started with China Glaze Peonies & Park Ave, a bright pink creme polish. Then I added China Glaze I'm a Go Glitter, a clear polish with pink, teal and lime green glitter. I created a Half Moon mani by layering the glitter polish on carefully. Normally I use the hole punch reinforcers but this time just freehanded it!

My Take On: Pur Minerals Makeup

Hey everyone! Today I have a fun makeup review for you. I was provided three items from Pur Minerals to review and I was so excited to try them! I'm always looking for new makeup solutions for my skin.

First, I tried their 4-in-1 Liquid foundation!  Love that it has SPF (a must-have for me!) and it promises 14-hour wear, great for heading to work all day and then having a night out without having to worry about it wearing off. It was so smooth to put on, and the color blended into my skin really nicely.

 Next, I tried their CC Cream. I've recently tried several CC creams and this one felt sooo good on my skin! With an SPF of 40, this is great to wear every day, even when I don't feel like putting on a full face of makeup.

Lastly, I was able to try their 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Powder. Powder is a key in my makeup routine to keep my face looking fresh all day. This powder had the perfect balance between smoothness and coverage.

Overall I loved these products and would definitely recommend them!

My Take On: ICU Eyewear Sunglasses!

Just because it's fall doesn't mean you can't look fabulous in sunglasses! ICU Eyewear offers tons of adorable styles at great prices. I was able to sample two pairs from them and love them both. They're sturdy and they definitely block the sun. Perfect for a casual day in the park or pairing with a great dress and coat.

My Take On: FingerPaints Monet Money

Hey guys! Today I have a review of FingerPaints Monet Money. This polish is a deep hunter green creme. I'm becoming a bit of a green lover recently and this color is great for fall and winter. It applies really nicely, only needing two coats in this case.
