Revlon Holochrome Collection Review

Hi loves! I recently picked up two shades from the Revlon Holochrome collection on impulse while browsing the drugstore. The gorgeous shiny packaging really caught my eye! I thought the Holochrome collection was brand new, but after a quick Google search I discovered that it was actually released last fall. So I'm a tad late, but better late than never, right? I purchased two shades from the collection: Unicornicopia and Hologasm. The collection has such cute names!

Here is Unicornicopia without flash. It's a gorgeous lavender.

And here is it with flash. You can see the holographic effect much better.

The Holochrome polishes have great staying power, probably because of the micro glitters in them (I always found that glitter nail polish rarely chips). Here is how my mani looked after five days. Not bad, eh?

Below is a Valentine's Day mani I did using Hologasm. Hologasm is a gorgeous pale silver. It's slightly sheer, so I had to use three coats. Here's how it looks without flash.

And here it is with flash. So sparkly!!

I'm extremely impressed with these polishes and I can definitely see myself wearing these a lot, especially during the summer! I think Unicornicopia would look stunning as a pedicure color. Have you tried any polishes from this collection? I'm very tempted to pick up Fairy Dust as well, it's such a lovely blue!

Thanks for reading! xo

6 Years of Blogging

Hi lovelies! Today is my blog's 6th blogiversary, and ya'll know I had to make a cake to celebrate!

I can't believe a year has already gone by since my 5th blogiversary. I haven't blogged as much this past year as previously. I have a lot less free time since becoming a homeowner, plus I have to split the free time I do have with my other hobbies. However, even if I've posted less often, I still really love my little blog and I want to keep it going. Stay tuned for a nail polish review coming up soon, and more outfits of the day once spring rolls around!

In other news, if you follow my other social media, you might have noticed that I haven't posted anything on YouTube since December. I'm just not feeling it anymore. I might make new videos in the future, but for now I'm taking a break.

Thank you to each and every person who takes the time to ready my blog! It's so thrilling interacting with you :)

Rimmel London Wonder'fully Real Mascara with Keratin

Hello lovelies! How is everyone? This is only my second post of 2018... I feel like time is flying by and I don't know where January went! I can't say I'm upset though, I mean January is a pretty blah month. I recently tried a new mascara and I really love it, so here is a review for ya'll. 

I was browsing the drugstore for a new mascara a few weeks ago, and the pretty pink tube of the Rimmel London Wonder'fully Real Mascara with Keratin caught my eye. I've always been a big fan of Rimmel London mascaras. This one claims to give you "fuller, longer, luscious lashes". What's not to love about that? The keratin is supposed to give your lashes lusciousness and really build them up (keratin is the main structural part of hair, so you're basically adding hair to your lashes!). This mascara has a plastic brush which I prefer to bristle brushes. The formula is super creamy and builds my lashes effortlessly. The only downside to this mascara is that if I'm not careful, it's easy to accidentally get too much product on  my lashes which causes them to look clumped together. The trick is to be super gentle with the application. This mascara lives up to all its claims, especially the lengthening factor, and I would definitely buy it again!

Thanks for reading! Hope you all have a great week! xo
