Milani Cosmetics ~ Dolci Bronze Collection



New Milani Summer DOLCI BRONZE Collection is now available. 
So you better get what you want now , they sell out pretty fast :)
Last week I went to Walgreen's to see of the display is up... No luck...
On my way back I stopped by CVS. And  I was shocked to see the display! My CVS never gets any displays ! Never! So yeah  imagine my surprise :)
Unfortunately display was wiped out! only 1 eye shadow , 1 lipstick and 2 nail polishes left ....
I grabbed eye shadow and lipstick. :) Really dying over the lip gloss... Need to hunt it down : )
Love how every shade have the same name :) 


DOLCI Lipstick ~ As you can see the packaging is different then the regular Milani Lipsticks. 
It is a beautiful coppery gold color. Creamy satin finish and very nice pigmentation. Smells is also different then the other permanent lipsticks. This one have a vanilla smell , but when you apply same watermelon taste as other mMilani lipsticks.

DOLCI Bella Eye Shadow ~ The color is beyond beautiful. Metallic finish with some shimmers :) just like a lipstick , coppery gold shade.  Perfect for all over lid. I used i today and I Love it. Applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion , smoked out with a darker brown shade (the otter corner of my eyelids). The look came out beautiful. The shadow did not crease. I used my finger to apply it , to get a better pigmentation out of it. 


TOP Swatch ~ Eye Shadow
BOTTOM Swatch ~ Lipstick

I don't know if they are Limited Edition or not. So if you like it then get it :) Personally I will go look for a lip gloss and the bronzer. Really want both to join my collection :) 
Price : 
Lipstick $6.29
Eye Shadow $4.69

Green Smoothie




Here is an idea on what to do with your leftover lettuce. I bought a lettuce for my sandwiches I made on Sunday. I have a lot left and I was thinking of what to with it. Well I haven’t drink smoothie in a while and someone told me that lettuce smoothies are really good. I just needed few fruits to add and voila J my green drink is ready.
It only takes few seconds and tastes really good J
Romaine lettuce is a nutrient rich leafy green that is good for your heart and low in calories. The vitamin C and beta-carotene content help to lower cholesterol and prevent build up on artery walls, which reduces the risk of heart attack. Being low in calories also helps you lose weight while keeping you full.

So what do you need for you leafy green smoothie?

Simple :
Lettuce or any other green veggie like spinach
Banana
Grapes
Pineapple and pineapple juice
Ice (optional)
Blend all in blender J

Easy huh? And it does taste really good J
Of course you can add anything you want. This is what I had at home.
Hope you get to make it. Let me know if you liked it
Hugs

Eat your greens or should I say Drink It 




PIxi Beauty ~ My Winning prize


Not long time ago I entered PIXI Beauty giveaway on Instagram and I Won Woooho . By the way the giveaway still might be going so Check them on Instagram ----> link here.  
You could win two free manis:)
I got notification via email. I Was super excited.
Last week I received two nail polishes and an sample of a black pencil eyeliner :) Since I don't own anything from their brand I was happy to try it out :)  

The two nail polishes I received are new to their line.
 Exotic Emerald  ~ I don't think I own anything like this color. Its beautiful. The most gorgeous green color I ever worn on my nails. Super opaque. One coat is enough :) very true to color. Dries fast and lasted on my nails 4 days :) Keep in mind I do some housework too. So long lasting nail polish is a kinda big deal for me . I don't have time to apply new one every other day ... 

Diamond Dazzle ~ Full on glitter :) It Wow-ed me! I think the best glitter I own so far. Reminds me of Essie "Set In Stones", but it have more glitter chunks then Essie. 

Both nail Polishes you can get it off Pixi Beauty Website and Target (in store and online). Price $8 each

Endless Silky Eye Pen (color Black Noir)  ~ Silky smooth and intense black. I was actually going to buy new back pencil (pixi read  my mind hahah ).
I use it on my top water line. Goes on smoothly and its super pigmented. Its water proof and stays up to 5h. Gel formula gives an intense color of a liquid liner. I have been wearing it ever since I got it and I am super duper happy. Didn't notice any smudging or what so ever. It is paraben and mineral  oi free.

Again you can purchase it on Pixi Website or Target (in store and online) price $14











Wet n Wild Max Volume Plus Mascara ~ Review


 


 I love Wet n Wild products. They are super affordable, really good quality and pigmentation on the eye shadows is amazing. But when it comes to their mascaras, I say no . I bought three in the past and I was not happy with any of it. I felt like the formula of them was really really dry. When I applied on my lashes I was disappointed. After of few coats I didn't get the look I was going for. I like my lashes bold, long  and black! I always choose the Blackest color there is.
I told myself never ever again ... until I saw the new one few weeks back. 
The packaging caught my eye, but I didn't buy it the first time .
One day when Wet n Wild was on 40% off , I figure why not , let me try it and see if it is different then the other ones.
The packaging is shaped the same way as L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara ( one of my favorite mascaras). This one a bit more bulkier.
The tube is PINK ( and WE know how I LOVE anything PINK hahah) with white writing. 
The brush as you can see its thin at the top  then it grows thicker. The rubber bristles separate my lashes and gives the nice lengthens  and thickens. It also lifts and curl them with out using the eyelash curler. Amazing :) I just need  a two coats to get the look I need. 
The formula itself is neither wet or dry. It didn't flake or smudge . By the end of the day still looks as good as it did in the morning :) 
Most of the time I use it alone , but there are the days when I apply a coat of Miss Manga on top.

I  was positively surprised with this mascara. I will repurchase it again.
Do I recommend it ? Yes, I do. It's only $4.99 and in  my opinion is worth it.
