Happy Coral Pink Nails with SpaRitual

I decided I needed a happy, bright-ish nail polish shade on my nails to combat the grey dreariness of the January weather here in Michigan.  So, I went through my polish collection and found "Miss World" by SpaRitual.

Isn't it a happy coral pink?

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Blush Swatches and Review

I saw some promo images for these a few weeks ago and knew I was going to have to have one of them once I found them in the drugstore.

Beautiful packaging and presentation sells stuff, my friends.

They showed up in my local CVS a couple of weeks ago -- much earlier than I expected them to.  I had only seen the picture of the "Rose" shade, so I thought there was only one blush color, and I had only planned on buying the one blush.  To my surprise, there are two shades, "Rose" and "Natural".  I stood in CVS for I don't know how long trying to decide which one to get, but I seriously couldn't decide.  So I bought them both.  Sheesh.  I had some Extra Bucks, and there was a deal where you get $10 Extra Bucks with the purchase of two Physicians Formula products, so that made it better, but still.

Anyhow, on to the pictures!

Detroit Lions Face of the Day

So, I created this look of the day last week when the Detroit Lions (Detroit's NFL team) were playing in the wild card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.  I was hoping wearing some fun, Detroit Lions colors-inspired makeup would help them win.  Unfortunately, the referees had a different plan.  Even President Obama weighed in on the controversy.  Anyhow, I had fun with this look.

Detroit Lions colors are blue and white.

The Darkside Face of the Day

Uh oh.  Another attempt at a creative blog post title.  This one is based on the shade "Darkside" in the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette that I used.  This isn't a dark look, so the name doesn't really fit, does it?

ColourPop Haul, Swatches, and Wee Review

Hi everyone!  I hope the new year is treating you well!  I thought we'd kick of a new year of blogging with a little haul.

I have jumped on the ColourPop bandwagon, and my package arrived in the mail a few days ago.  The box was so incredibly carefully packed.  Like every shadow was wrapped in foam and paper careful.  I was definitely impressed.  Unfortunately, I was too excited to open it to take a photo of how well they packed it, so you're just going to have to take my word for it.  It came in a cute ColourPop box, and with a handwritten note.  They also included a "tips and tricks" card.

ColourPop is a small (although quickly growing, I suspect) cosmetics company based in southern California.  It is a cruelty-free company, and specializes in shadows/pigments and lip liners and lipsticks.  All of their single products are $5 USD.  All of them.

Here is my stuff:
