OPI Nail Lacquer "Skinny Dip'n in Lake Michigan"

OPI Nail Lacquer "Skinny Dip'n in Lake Michigan"--I've had this shade for a while now.  It's not one of my go-to nail colors probably because it is such a pale peachy-pink and sheer finish, which makes it hardly noticeable.  I applied 3-coats to try and get more color.  It does have a nice shimmer when the light hits it.  I think this shade would look gorgeous on longer nails :)

Gosh, it's been quite a while since I've written on my blog.  This month has just zipped on by, and Halloween is only 2-days away, geesh!  Christmas is less than 2-months away, yikes!

I have been enjoying the new Sephora Collection Microsmooth Baked eyeshadow trio in "After Glow 04", and also their waterproof eyebrow pencil.  The eyeshadows can be worn dry or used wet for a more intense look--I like to use the darker shade wet as an eyeliner.  Very long-lasting and not too shimmery.  On my lips I used Boots No7 Lip Liner in "Caramel" (my go-to), with NARS lipstick in "Sexual Healing", which I just love!

On my face I used Maybelline concealer in "Radiant", Laura Mercier pressed mineral powder "Classic Beige", Bobbi Brown Bronzer in "Bali Brown", Clarins Rouge Prodige in "Soft Peach", and Clinique Matte pressed powder in "Transparent", and Urban Decay "De-Slick" setting spray (love this product); it sets my make-up and just makes everything look seamless;)

Lippie Combo: Boots No7 Wild Volume Lipstick "Ginger Mousse" w/Elizabeth Arden Lip Liner "Taupe"

I tried this lippie combo the other day and I was quite pleased with it.  Pictured here is Boots No 7 Wild Volume Lipstick in "Ginger Mousse" and Elizabeth Arden Lip Pencil in "Taupe"--this combo goes very well together.  The taupe lip pencil is a great nude/neutral that can be worn with so many lipsticks and/or glosses.  I love the Boots No 7 Wild Volume Lipstick in "Ginger Mousse"--it's a beautiful warm ginger with pearl finish.  Recently, I have noticed that my local Target is not restocking Boots No 7 cosmetics and I am beginning to wonder if they are going to stop carrying this line.  I sure hope not because they are the only retailer in the United States that carries the Boots No 7 line; at least in my area.
