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.
