Laura Mercier Highlight 01 vs Wet 'n' Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Makeup is one of my favorite things. I love reading about it, looking at it, and wearing it. One of the most entertaining parts of makeup, for me, is the "dupe hunt". I love comparing similar products...and its even more fun if they are on opposite ends of the price spectrum. Today, I'm comparing two wonderful highlight products.

ELF Daily Brush Cleaner

One of the decidedly not glamorous parts of makeup is the cleanup. I hate it desperately. It is probably the reason that I have so many blending brushes. I tend to put off the cleaning until I absolutely have to...which makes the task longer...which makes me hate it more. It is a vicious circle. To keep things moderately tidy in between bathings, I use a handy spot cleaner. It helps put some space and time in between the deep cleanse.

Different Dimension + Colors by Llarowe Holo Stamping

Even though my bottle of Knot of My Watch has changed from the original (and I like it better this way) I had to use it one more time. The formula is just too good. And I had never tried a holo stamping polish...so I figured What the hell?!" It isn't perfect, but it sure is sparkly.

Emily de Molly | Crackle Forever

I love crackle. A good crackle polish can do amazing things. Crap ones are crap...but the good ones, like this one...so good. It takes a pretty sparkly thing and gives it a bit of an edge. Plus, there is something about using a product that is "over" than gives my inner Hipster soul a tingle.

Unicorn Decal Nail Art

Just when you thought I was done with stamping...I went and did a whole bunch. I even made a decal. Holy cow. The only way to make this cooler would be to make it unicorn themed...oh wait.

Lush Cosmetics Oatifix Fresh Face Mask

Since my husband fell in love with his Lush Cosmetics beard wash, I am fast turning into a "Lushie". Apparently it is the most glamorous sort of cult...and I am not sorry. I get to try all sorts of fun things, and find some real gems in the process.

Smooshy Mermaid Nail Art

I am all about new things these days. I had never tried a "smoosh" manicure before, as I saw them as a second-rate seriotype...but I stand here today to proclaim that I was wrong. And I love them. Here is the first of many. So very many.

Different Dimension Oh Shell No! Double Stamping

The ambitiousness continues with a little double stamping! I had to do something beachy with this sandy, shimmering base...but I couldn't decide. So I did both. I still don't know which I like better.

B Polished Classic Lace Stamping

I know, I know...lacy and delicate is not really the very first thing that pops into your mind when you think of me. It might not even be in the top ten things...I know it isn't for me. But sometimes you see a color that screams for a certain design, and you are powerless before it. This is one of those times.
