Chanel Jalousie Glossimer: Review & Swatch!

As part of my "use up as many products in 2012" efforts, I've been really resisting makeup purchases lately. So much so that ever since my trip to LA the first week of January, I haven't bought anything! That is, until I swatched this at the Chanel counter this week and instantly knew I had to make an exception.

Nail of the Day: Butter London Disco Biscuit!

Long time no blog! I've been all wrapped up in other things the last few weeks, but today I had some time to paint my nails for the first time in a while, and tried out a new color from Butter London's spring collection! Disco Biscuit is a hot pink base with purple, pink, and blue microshimmer in it. It's like a disco Barbie shade!

natural light, 2 coats

I must say, I cannot remember the last time I used a polish with a formulation this great. It seemed to be the perfect consistency while applying. I don't own many Butter London polishes, but this makes me want to pick up a few more. As far as dupes go, the only similar one I can think of is Wing It!, a limited polish from OPI a few summers ago. If you like bright, fun pinks, you may want to check this one out.

Hope you guys have been good!!
xx, Allison

Beauty Wishlist: February 2012

Every once in a while, I like to do "wishlist" blog posts to share which products/items I've been lusting over lately. With all of these spring product releases, I'm practically drowning in desire, so I thought I would share which items I'm eyeing most! Note: All photos used in this post are official promo images, as I do not physically have the products to photograph myself. If you would like to see actual product photos/swatches, a Google image search will give you an even better idea of what they look like!

1.) NARS Spring 2012 Collection blush in Gaiety: No surprise here. This new blush from the Spring 2012 collection is a matte candy pink that is to die for. What I especially love about Gaiety is it appears to be NARS Desire's cousin for fair to medium skin tones. Desire is a similar bright pink that is a bit darker, much brighter, and a bit over the top for my skin tone. Gaiety is lighter, more sheer, and more wearable for me!
