So what makes the holidays feel like the holidays? Well it's that festive polish you're wearing of course! With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas very soon after, I wanted to get a head start on sifting through my red polishes to find the perfect holiday red. Well, I think I found a contender. It's the Zoya Pixie Dust polish in Chyna.

Wet N Wild Limited Edition Matte Collection: Urban Night, Sweet Cream, and Bordeaux Boulevard

Wet n Wild Limited Edition Matte Collection

Lets just start off by saying, 'Hello Gorgeous!". These are the new Wet n Wild Limited Edition Matte Collection lipsticks. I have to say that these lipsticks really speak for themselves. The packaging is a nice matte rubberized finish, and the caps are on there securely. The only thing that some matte lipstick lovers out there may not appreciate, is that these lippies are more of a satin finish than a true matte. With that said, these lipsticks are FABULOUS! They are so nice and creamy on the lips and are very comfortable to wear for a lengthy period of time. They are all very pigmented and apply beautifully and evenly. There is a color for everyone in this small little collection. Lets take a closer look...

Nordstrom Rack: Clear The Rack Haul feat. TOMS !!

Nordstrom Rack Clear The Rack

BOY: You know you can't wear those until next summer. Can you wait that long?

ME: Ummm, YES!

This past weekend, Nordstrom Rack had their Clear the Rack event where all their red tag items are an additional 25% off of the price marked. Well, needless to say I had to at least take a peak! Normally, I hardly ever find anything during these events because by the time I get there it always seems like it had already been ravaged. Thankfully, this time around was different!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick: Gothica

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick - Gothica

When I first laid eyes on Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Gothica it reminded me of crushed bronze dipped fall leaves, and I still stand by that! I was really drawn to this lipstick especially for the fall. Something about bronze, burnt oranges and glitter that just take me to a typical crisp cool NYC  fall afternoon, strolling around, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte in hand...Ahhhhhhh....

There are patterns and colors galore that can suit anyone’s style, and there are different types suitable to different workouts/lifestyles.

Deborah Lippmann: Glitter In the Air

Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air
I recently hit the Deborah Lippmann jackpot and scored a few bottles for about $6.50 a piece during the Sale. Among the many, that I will be reviewing slowly but surely, is Glitter in the Air. At first I have to be honest, I was on the fence about this polish because it has been reported as being sheer and several people have told me that they didn't think it was worth it especially since Revlon had duped it with Whimsical. However, I still wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a try, I have never been let down by Deborah Lippmann, so I took my chances.

Tarte Wanderlust Special Edition LipSurgence 5-pc Lip Set Review

Not a year can go by without me reviewing some kind of Tarte LipSurgence product. “My name is Helen, and I have Tarte LipSurgence Problem”. You can check out my previous blog posts about these beauties, but to sum it up, I love them!
Tarte Wanderlust Special Edition LipSurgence: L-R: Dashing (Lip Luster), Heartfelt (Lip Creme), Miracle (Lip Creme), Festive (Lip Tint), and Kind (Lip Luster)
I must say in November I was a little disappointed that Tarte had not put out another set of 5 full size LipSurgence, and instead opted to make a mini’s set. I look forward to the holiday set every year, and I still kick myself for missing out on the first 5 piece set they did. Well, needless to say I did not get the minis set, because I enjoy my full size lippies and the minis just didn’t do anything for me. Fast forward to a few weeks before Christmas, I was browsing the QVC website doing some Christmas shopping and decided to check out their Tarte products and there she was!! That ever elusive Wanderlust Special Edition set of 5 full size LipSurgence, that had been hiding from me all winter season long. Needless to say, without even giving it a second thought I tossed that bad boy in the basket and checked out!! Now that you have that back story, let’s get into the review and swatches!

Color Club Mini Nail Polish in #6032 For You

Color Club Nail Lacquer in #6032 For You
Happy New Year 2014 !! I hope you all are looking forward to the New Year as much as I am!! Onward we go!!
Color Club Nail Lacquer in #6032 For You
Nothing like starting off a New Year of Blogging with a fresh Mani! Today we will be looking at a new (at least for me) Color Club Mini in #6032 ‘For You’. I picked up this adorable mini polish at Harmon’s where they had a decently sized display of all mini color club polishes, including minis of their newer collection ‘Girl About Town’ (Fall 2013), which I was surprised to see. From this display I also picked up a mini of ‘The Uptown’ from the Fall Collection, which I will review soon. In the meantime, you can see swatches on my Instagram (helensbeauty). The ‘For You’ polish happened to catch my eye because I thought it was pretty unique looking, and it reminded me of an indie brand polish.
