Product Review+SWATCHES: Sephora Collection 24 HR Flashy Eyeliners

From l to r: Flashy Brown and Turquoise
Hello All,
I've had these liners for about a month. I saw them in the sale bin while looking around in Sephora, and they immediately caught my eye. I chose two colors that I feel I would use most often(and boy do I). They have a silky application, and an foiled finish. While I have not tested for an entire 24 hours, they do no go anywhere until I wipe them off with a makeup wipe, and makeup remover. Check out more of the review below.

 Deborah Lippmann - Nail Lacquer - Glitter
High end nail polish connoisseur, Deborah Lippman, has teamed up with Sephora for en exclusive collection. Launching, this September, the partnership will produce four shades, three cream and one glitter polish, costing $17 and $19 respectively. This will mark Ms. Lippman's debut in Sephora stores, despite what the public may think. Here's what she had to say about the collaboration: 

“A lot of people think I’m already in Sephora, since it’s the place to shop for indie brands. But given Sephora’s reach, we wanted to prepare adequately to enter Sephora, to be able to fulfill orders properly and keep up with reorders. That required reaching a proper size and having a fair amount of visibility before entering such a big retailer.”
Makes sense to me.
Will you be checking out the collection?

Friday Fun: Virgin Mimosa

Happy Friday All!

On my way to work I usually bring a beverage of some kind; tea, smoothies, sparkling water, etc. Then an idea dawned on me, Sprite and orange juice-virgin mimosa! This is the same concept of the traditional drink the calls for champagne and orange juice, only with Sprite replace the champagne. You still have the sparking affect thanks to the carbonation of the soda and sweetness due to the juice.  I used about half Sprite, half orange juice, but you can play with the percentages based on your personal taste.

Try it and let me know what you think!
