Get Your Summer Lovin’ On with August Polish Pick Up Exclusive KBShimmer Sandy

KBShimmer has done it again! Christy was inspired by Grease, and created this gorgeous, sparkly polish called Sandy, an August Polish Pick Up Exclusive. “Grease is one of my favorite movies, and when it came to the Musical theme, I knew that I could use no other for my August Polish Pick Up exclusive. At the start of the movie we instantly have all the feels for this young couple at the beach. Wave crashing, sun setting, we see the love between the two. Only when we hear that Sandy is leaving do we know we are in for a not typical love story. Those beach scenes inspired this sandy colored shade, called Sandy.”

Meet My Match: ColourPop No Filter Foundation in Medium Dark 120!

I have been trying to figure out my ColourPop No Filter Foundation shade. Well, phew, I finally found it! Let’s discuss the journey. According to a chart that Jordynn shared on IG Stories with a comparison list of No Filter Concealer to No Filter Foundation, I picked the previous foundation shades based on (the wrong, my own bad!) concealer shades. I assumed my No Filter Concealer shade’s rename and chose two foundation shades in Medium Dark 110 and 115 on a whim when the foundations launched, which ended up being too light, ashy, and definitely the wrong undertone for me.

My concealer shade is Medium Dark 34, previously known as Medium Tan 35.

After I reread the chart a few times (and sleepless nights, no joke! I really wanted the correct shade for me because the foundation was extremely comfortable to me), I finally messaged CS and showed them my photos PLUS my makeup-free face AND my current foundation choice and concealer choice, and they suggested Medium Dark 120. They told me that this was just a recommendation, so they were not guaranteeing a match. Of course, I understood that, so I went back to my research and reread the chart over and over again. I might or might not have put Medium Dark 130 and 135 into my cart, but finally, I decided against those shades since 110 and 115 were PRETTY close to my skintone but just a wrong undertone and a tad or two lighter. So, I put Medium Dark 120 in my cart and tried it on IMMEDIATELY after receiving it because I just couldn’t wait to see. And, guess what? Pretty perfect match! I also ended up going to my local Ulta and asking the MUA on hand what they thought so I could also share their feedback with you, and they said, “Pretty good match! Looks like your skin! That foundation looks AMAZING!” And, guess what, folks? It is. Formula and finish is fantastic!

Immortalize Your Love with an Eternity Rose

An Eternity Rose, a 24K gold dipped rose, is an amazing gift for someone who already has everything and would be a joy to gift and even receive. Yes, you heard me correctly, a real rose dipped in certified 24K gold! If you’ve ever gifted or received flowers, you know their guarantee is definitely not a lifetime one. Some often don’t like gifting or receiving roses or flowers for this reason alone. An Eternity Rose, however, will indeed last forever.

Slip Into Something Comfortable with the NYX Slip Tease Full Color Lip Oil

With the liquid lipstick trend, a lot of complaints from fans have been that they often leave their lips high and dry. So, seeing a full color lip oil is refreshing while still being trendy. The NYX Slip Tease Full Color Lip Oils are interesting because I did not know what to expect. Actually, I was under the impression that they would glide on (which they did) and stay slightly glossy (they didn’t – they actually dry matte) while keeping my lips comfortable (yes, extremely comfortable and lightweight). I picked up 4 colors because I wanted to experiment with a variety of shades.  

The colors I picked up?

  • NYX Beyond Basic 
  • NYX Lowkey
  • NYX Bang Bang
  • NYX Fatal Attraction
