OPI Nail Polish: OPI Red

OPI in "OPI Red" -- Pictured here with flash.  I recently got my mani done in OPI's "OPI Red"  --  Now, I am not a huge lover of the color red but since it is the holidays season and all, I decided to get something festive.  This is actually a nice "red" with just a hint of pearlescent glow, if you will.  This is a nice, clean red -- not orange or burgundy, just RED.  This is actually a color that I would purchase and wear again!

FOTD: Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Clarins, Dior, Senna Cosmetics and Lancome

Can you believe we are in the holiday season already?!  My gosh...time is going so fast.  I have been so busy lately with Thanksgiving and now planning for Christmas that I have neglected my blog so I decided to log on and do a FOTD....

Pictured here I am wearing Laura Mercier Eyeshadow Stick in Amethyst, Bobbi Brown Bronzer in "Bali Brown" and Clarins Blush Prodige "Peach", and Senna Cosmetics Setting Powder.  On Lips I am wearing Lancome Fever Gloss in "Delirium" and Revlon Lip Liner in "Pink", although I think it's too pink for this pale pink gloss.  On my brows I used Dior in "Universal Brown".

May you all have a wonderful holiday season!!



Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser (Foaming Formula)

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser (Foaming Formula) --  I used this facial cleanser for a few months.  It is a clear, foaming gel.  I think I liked using this during the hot summer months however, now that we are in the winter season, this cleanser seems to be a bit too drying for my skin.  I have oily/combo skin.

This is a pretty nice cleanser for the price however, one thing I don't care for is that it has a slight fragrance.  This is supposed to be a "ultra gentle" cleanser, so I'm not sure why Neutrogena decided to put fragrance in it.  I would prefer it to be fragrance-free.

All-in-all, it is a good cleanser however, if you have normal or dry skin, I would not recommend it, unless you moisturize very well afterwards.

Lancome Color Fever Gloss - "Inferno" & "Delirium"

Lancome Color Fever Gloss - "Inferno" & "Delirium"  --  I love both of these glosses.  Lancome Color Fever Gloss is one of my all-time favorites lip glosses.  They are very creamy and last longer than the average lipgloss.   
Top: "Inferno" - a pale beige-peachy color
Bottom: "Delirium" - a pale lilac pink -- so gorgeous!


Swatch - Top: "Inferno"  Bottom: "Delirium"

I love the applicator wand!  It makes application so easy and precise!  (Delirium shown)

Me wearing Lancome Color Fever Gloss in "Delirium"  -- This gloss looks great worn alone or over a lilac or soft pink lipstick!  The options are endless...such a pretty color!

Dior Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstick " 565 Vogue"

Dior Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstick "565 Vogue" -- Dior has reformulated the Rouge Dior lipsticks for their 60th Anniversary (Fall 2013) and have also added some new colors and redesigned the lipstick case and packaging as well.

I originally had my eye on two other completely different colors, but somehow this color "565 Vogue" kept speaking to me.  It is a bright 
fuchsia shade which turned out to be surprisingly not as intense as I thought it would be.  I don't have any fuchsia lipsticks in my collection, so I thought this would be a lovely choice.

The packaging and lipstick case has changed slightly.  The previous Rouge Dior had the iconic "quilt" print all over the case; now it is just the opposite with the "quilt" print only on the silver part and the rest of the case is smooth.  I like how they changed the "CD" initials on the top of the case also!

This new formula is ultra-silky and applies so smoothly.  It feels very lightweight on the lips however, the color is rich and intense!  Rouge Dior still has that lovely "rose" scent that I love.  I could not believe that when I looked in the mirror after about 5-hours of wear, it still looked gorgeous!  The color had barely worn off and my lips felt so soft and moisturized.

While I love this new formula, I think they could have shortened the name a bit, don't you think?  This new formula of Rouge Dior lipstick is amazing and worth adding to your lipstick collection.

F&NOTD: Chanel & OPI

I have not done a FOTD in a while.  I'm calling this "Face and Nails Of The Day", LOL

Me and my Husband recently celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary and his Birthday.  I did not realize nor did I plan at the time, but I ended up being dressed in "plums" that evening!  My eyeshadow, lips, nails and even my dress was plum!  Anywho, it was a beautiful evening!

Pictured here I am wearing CHANEL Illusion D'Ombre Long-Wearing Eyeshadow in "Fatal" (Fall 2013 Collection)

OPI "Meet me on the Star Ferry" (with flash)

I've been wearing a lot of nudes and pinky-nudes on my nails lately so I decided I wanted to go with something darker since we are in the Fall Season now.  This color looks even more pretty on than it does in the bottle!  It's a gorgeous deep-mauve with the most beautiful shimmer.  In different lighting it appears more purple (think of grape soda).  Me Loves!
