Kiss Nail Polish from Dollar Tree

“I already have that color I don’t need it”-said no woman ever (especially not me) lol. When these polishes first released, I spotted them in Kmart. They were priced for more than $2 and I just wasn’t wow’d enough to swipe. 

It was at Dollar Tree when I lost my memory lol. I saw these for a dollar and it made me holla!!

There isn’t anything unique about the colors but the formula is amazing, these can easily be one coaters.
Check out the colors I bought.








Aforementioned about the formula, it is excellent and dries to a glossy finish, I didn’t swatch these with a top coat. These could easily be one coaters. I did have a slight application problem with Fantasia & Sweet Angel being a little on the thick side, but waiting in between layers always helps–along with polish thinner.

Now I’m not one to tell you what to do buuuuuut go get you a few lol!

My Little Watermarble 

Watermarble is my favorite sport!! 

For this mani I used 3 polishes from the latest collaboration release from China Glaze. This collection features 12 polishes all dedicated to my childhood oops I meant My Little Pony. Yes I’m proud to say my childhood, I had all the My Little Pony toys my mom allowed herself to be coerced into buying lol. Sorry mom, I didn’t keep my promise of never wanting any other toy after that lol.

The colors I used below: L to R: Too Busy Being Awesome, Cute Mark The Spot, Sweet As Pinkie Pie.

These wm so beautifully I had absolutely no problems 


If you haven’t purchased any of these polishes, you’re missing out a good mani and some good memories.

There’s also 2 LE sets that you can purchase on eBay, Sally’s and Ulta Beauty.

Have you purchased any polish from this collection? Which one(s)?

Influenster Oasis Voxbox 

*sample, items were sent in exchange for my honest review*.

I swear I feel like I’ve made it y’all when Influenster sends me a email saying I’m in the next campaign lol! I get so excited to see what’s coming my way, I haven’t gotten one so far that I didn’t like. I love when I get full size products too y’all like yaaaaas I have arrived!!

So this Voxbox was filled with snacks & smell goods this time. Look what I got…

I’ve been sent the Vera Wang perfume samples before in another Voxbox and I enjoyed them. The scents are strong but feminine and they lasts good while. At work my coworkers said they knew I had left the bathroom because of my perfume (glad it wasn’t cause of a bad smell right lol).

When filling out the criteria list for this Voxbox I was crossing my fingers when choosing the foundation shade, in hopes I done good. The shade I chose is Tawny. This foundation is currently in drugstores so shout out to me for my price of FREE.99!!

Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir foundation

I’m still a little iffy about the shade, I’m going to do my best to make it work, however I think it’s not my shade. Stay tuned for a FOTD post.
The Welch’s fruit rolls and Aloha peanut butter bar I’ve had before and they’re a nice little snack you can enjoy at work (I did anyway).

The Eva•NYC Mane Magic smells sooooooo good and left my hair very moisturized. I received their products before and I enjoyed using their shampoo & conditioner.

So enough of me rambling about my Voxbox let me help you get with the program. If you’re not already a member of Influenster, you can join here. It’s best that you fill the profile out to the categories that most fit the products you’d like to receive. You should connect all your social media accounts so that you can complete the badges that will help you score more Voxboxes, thank me later!!

Thanks again Influenster 💋

Colourpop Yes, Please! Swatches 


Yes, please and thank you!! 

I finally got my hands on @colourpopcosmetics Yes, Please! palette since restock last week. I feel like I’m sounding like a looped video on Snapchat when I say that these colors are my every day go to colors–it bears repeating tho lol. You’ll see from the swatches below how pigmented these colors are. So now this is going to be my second go-to palette for the everyday colors I like to wear to work. 

If you own any of CP’s super shock shadows you will have already witnessed how smooth they are. My first go to palette is Juvia’s Place Nubian 1 palette. These colors are woc friendly IMO.

Did you pick up this collection gem?

Lay Flat For Your Close Up

You know we can get so creative trying to capture that perfect shot right! I forget who it was, but I even saw someone on IG using their cat as a background fixture to do a makeup flat lay pic lol. 

I won’t go that route but I will use these use images from this multi image paper pads I purchased from Michael’s & Hobby Lobby. I was introduced to this by a YouTuber Bianca Andress, she will have you in these stores looking cray cray for the cute items she finds. Needless to say she had me in up them stores. She found hers in Micheal’s but I found some really cute paper pad themes in Hobby Lobby also, I caught them on a 50% off sale (which is still he current sale–I was in there today 😂🤣).

Micheal’s $14.99

All the rest are from Hobby Lobby $19.99 (50% off)


I tell you I’m a sucker for anything with the patterns of lips, hearts, hearts w/ stripes, lipsticks or leopard print. I think I’ll be using these paper pads for a while, there’s a glitter themed pad I want to go back to get. There’s just too many pages for me to show you every image you’ll get, so that means I’m sending you into them stores to check these out in person. I can’t seem to pick which store has the better themes. If you go, let me know!!

Here’s a page I used the other day for a polish flat lay pic.

What are some of your favorite patterns? What do you use for your flat lay pics?

Juvia’s Place Zulu Palette swatches 

I know I know, besides the fact that I haven’t been posting, I come posting a makeup release all late and what not lol! Better late than never right!!

As I have mentioned in other posts that Juvia’s Place has the best pigmented eyeshadow palettes out in the game right now! This is not being expressed to hear say it is personal experience that’s why I jumped to purchase them when they have a new release! The prices are affordable and the packaging is so eye catching.

So let’s get into their latest release named The Zulu pallet. I’m such a lush for bright colors so this is a hit for me (once again).

Check out the shimmers 

The Mattes

Excuse me for showing off because these were limited edition, so they’re not available for purchase on their site. However, there’s tons of eBay sellers giving you a chance to own this gem for your eyes!!
