Laura Mercier Haul and Review!!!

Ok! So the past couple of weeks I have been staring in every mirror in sight and taking constant pictures of myself. Not because I'm conceited but because Laura Mercier is a GENIOUS!
I have been using the Crème Smooth Foundation ($42)and I am beyond in love with this product!! Laura did not lie when she said it gives "flawless coverage." It makes my skin look as though someone just took an eraser and just erased all my freckles and redness and left me with perfect pore-less skin.
I have also been using the Tinted Moisturizer in Warm Radiance. ($42)
I have two words for this product! "The Bomb!" I have never had a moisturizer give so much coverage while giving my skin the "j-lo glow!" When I put this puppy on I get so much complements and questions on how I got the glow!
Ladies you can not go wrong with buying Laura's products! I plan on buying a whole lot more and doing some reviews!

Bonus Tip: The foundation should not be applied with a stippling brush! For best results use your fingers or any brush that has densely compact bristles.

A couple days ago Hautelook had a sale on Eve Pearl cosmetics and since I have always wanted to try them I thought, "why not!"
I purchased the HD dual pressed powder foundation. It comes in a small compact that has two shades of foundation. When I opened the compact I was surprised to see the color! The lighter side was more of a cream color and the darker side was a salmon color. (much like her concealer) I applied it with the sponge, and with a brush and got the same result both ways! I looked like an orange tinted disco ball:( This did not cover a thing and made me look very ashy!
  Bottom line, I really didn't feel that this was worth the money, even if I purchased it for less! I found that most drug store brands made me look better. Sorry Eve Pearl:(!

Nicole by OPI VS. Seche Vite....And the Winner is....?

I have been on a hunt for a good top coat that will make my polish last long and stay pretty!

I have been interchangeably using Nicole by OPI and Seche Vite for a couple of weeks now! Here are my findings:

Nicole by O.P.I. ($9) is a top coat that claims to reduce or stop your nail polish from chipping! I find that it does stop it from chipping however, you must have a professional nail drying machine or time to let your nails dry. Every time, I have applied this to my nails it would take at least 2 hours for my nails to completely dry! (Who has that kind of time) I didn't notice any chipping on my nails until 5 days after I have applied it.

Seche Vite ($10) is definitely the WINNER! It makes my nails look as though I have a glass overlay on my nails. It keeps my nails shinny and chip free for 5 days! This is worth every penny!
