My new favorite nail polish costs $1 and that makes me happy
Behold the beauty that is Irreplaceable Colour and Go polish by Essence. I’d love it at $8, but at $1 I’m in “quit my job and move across country for it” kind of love. It’s this gorgeous putty shade, loaded with delicate gold and green micro glitter. It’s all sorts of fabulous. I plan to hoard 10 bottles and don’t even have to feel bad about it.
Question of the Week: – If you were advising a makeup newbie, which three items would you suggest that they get to start with? (not counting base items)
Fun question! MAC Teddy eyeliner is a rich, shimmering chocolate brown that works with nearly everything (and probably the liner I use more than any other). A good shadow palette would be a wise purchase, and fun for a newbie to play with. So, how could I really pick anything other than Urban Decay Naked? Then I’m going to go for Benefit Coralista, one of the prettiest coral blushes around. And they might as well get started early on Benefit’s boxed blushes, they’re going to want every one!
