Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Glazewear Lip Gloss in Darling Pink

You know what I’ve been loving lately?  Lip Gloss!  “Taking it back to the old school, cuz I’m an old fool who’s so cool…”  (10 points if you can name that song)  …Anyways, Avon Glazewear has me loving lip gloss again.  I am just LOVING this formula.  It’s super comfortable to wear, not too sticky, moisturizing and great color pay off!  I’m wearing Avon True Color Glazewear in Darling Pink, which is just a perfect everyday lip color.  Especially perfect for spring.

Darling Pink is actually a cream shade, so its pretty opaque for a gloss.  In the sun shots you can see it has just a *touch* of shimmer that looks really stunning on.  I never would of bought this on my own, for no reason other than that I’m just “into lipsticks now.”  This Glazewear came as part of a set, the Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set actually.  After getting a Glazewear in my Savana Beauty Set (see here) and this one I’m officially on the gloss train.  That’s why I love sets, you get to try something you normally wouldn’t of picked out and sometimes its a grand slam, like this time.  The whole set is actually a grand slam!

Valued at $93 this Spring Pink Delights Collection set is ONLY $34.99!  I got it because I wanted the makeup bag, being a little larger I knew it would be great for traveling to fit larger items like foundation, full size hair products, etc.  Additionally, I needed more Skin So Soft oil and the Soft and Sensual scent is my favorite.  So for the cost of the SSS oil and the bag, I got a full size perfume, polish, lipgloss, shower gel and lotion!  Lucky for me I was trying out three new products (perfume, polish and gloss) and all of which I’m now using on the daily and loving!  Haiku Kyoto Flower is another one I’m kicking myself for not getting before now!

Wear and Share Wednesday – Valentine’s Day Manicures

I showed you an all out red, pink and white look to theme out your Valentine’s Day but today is 2 Valentine’s Day Mani’s styled around 1 mark. Ring Me Up Double Ring!  If going all out for Valentine’s isn’t your gig then try just doing a themed mani and pair it with one killer ring!  Go sweet and spicy all in one look!  Jackie from Living After Midnight went all sparkly with her XO mani while I went floral!

To create my abstract floral nails for Valentine’s Day I used the mark. Nail This Look It Kit ($28).  It contains two mini bottles of lacquer, one light pink (used as my base) and one dark pink (used for details).  The kit also contains one killer black and gold enamel buckle bracelet, which actually latches by the buckles so its adjustable.  Pretty much all you need to create the perfect Valentine’s Day look.

The fun ring and bracelet are the perfect pairing to my super girly mani.  The Ring Me Up Double Ring ($20) is actually more wearable than I initially thought.  Especially for a night out, like Valentine’s Date Night!

To create the floral design on my nails I used the tutorial from LaurenConrad.com for a floral mani.  I only put “leaves” on my left hand because I kinda liked them better without it.  What’s great about the mark. Nailed It mini polishes is the mini brush is perfect for small detailing like triangles and rose blobs.  I did use an old eyeliner brush to do the the swirls in the roses and the heart on my pointer (left hand only).  I think my first attempt at a floral mani was the perfect look for a Valentine’s Day mani to accompany the Ring Me Up Double Ring.  You can get both the ring and the mark. Nail This Look Set at my eboutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  Order quick so you can have it in time for V-Day!
