Word On the Easy On The Eyes A Box:  I’d buy this box just for the dark circle corrector!  Seriously, one of my staples.  I have always had dark circles and this product actually works at minimizing them.  Paired with the Anew Hydra Fusion De-Puffing Eye Serum I seriously looks bright eyed and bushy tailed, even though I’m not.  My pick for this campaign to build a $40 order and get that A Box for $10 would be:  $5 for 20 lip products, 2 for $35 Hydra Fusion (Eye Serum and new Over Night Treatment Mask) so that’s $55 add the A Box, so $65 for $155 worth of product.  I’m currently stocked on Hydra Fusion so I’m getting 10 lip products for $40 and adding the A box so 131 worth of products for $50!  You can’t beat it!  Take advantage of the 5 for $20 and this A Box you won’t regret it!  Follow me on Instagram (@wordofalicia) for my lip of the day lip swatches to help you decide.

Mani Monday: Turquoise and Nude Nails

Turquoise and Nude Mani

Turquoise and Nude Mani

Coming straight off my turquoise accent obsession today’s Mani Monday is nothing but fitting, especially for summer.  Ever since I got the mark. Nail This Look Polish and Ring Set I’ve basically been wearing the shade Seafoam non stop (as seen here and here).  It pairs well with everything from yellow to pink to blue to nude and more so no surprise I’m still wearing it.  Only this time with beige, Avon Barefoot Beige and a nude halo, Julep Ginger on my ring finger.

Usually my summer go-to is the brightest pink I can find but this year I’m all about the turquoise, mint and blues!  Lucky for me they’re hot this season (as seen here!)  Plus, they play well with my mark. Sparkle in A Snap Bracelet and Avon Signature Boyfriend Watch!  Shop these exact shades and accessories at my eBoutique and shop Julep here.

Summer Nails in Spring – Julep Maven Review Natasha & Oscar

Julep Natasha & Oscar with mark. Pretty Stellar Ring

Julep Natasha & Oscar with mark. Pretty Stellar Ring

There’s that mark. Pretty Stellar ring again, I told you I’m going to wear the crap out of it!  I took advantage of that amazing offer Julep is having for trying out their Maven program for a penny.  Best penny I ever spent!  If you don’t know what a Julep Maven is, its basically another beauty subscription service only for NAILS!!!  Yay!  Here’s more info.  Plus if you sign up through my link then I’ll love you forever and maybe send you a thank you gift for doing so 🙂  And ITS ONLY A PENNY, SO WHY NOT!  USE CODE COLOR2012 HERE!

Anywaaaaayyyysss… So I took my Julep quiz and decided my “fit” was the Bombshell set.  The Julep Maven Bombshell Introductory Box includes:

  • Julep™ Facial for Hands Glycolic Scrub, contains glycolic acid combined with apricot seeds for double exfoliation that leaves your hands noticeably softer after just one use.
  • Natasha, intense orange. Call attention to your sandals.
  • Oscar, sparkle like a star with this ultra chic, multi-dimensional gold glitter.

Julep Bombshell Intro Box


I have to say, I was quite impressed.  I REALLY loved the Julep Facial For Hands Glycolic Scrub.  I gave myself an at home mani with this guy and I really felt like I had stepped out of the nail salon when I did it all at home, FOR A PENNY!

I think I’ll continue to get Julep boxes for a while.  I def need to build up my mani product collection, maybe not so much my polish collection but honestly, when is getting new polish a bad thing?  Just forces myself to get rid of some old frosted colors I own haha.  Natasha really proved the point that I LOVE full color cremes, especially bright ones!  I tend to save them for summer but really, I need to wear them all year long, especially in the spring!

Sign up to become a Julep Maven yourself and get in on this, again FOR A PENNY!  You can cancel at anytime so even if you just get your first box for a penny and be done with it, its so worth it!  To get my KILLER ring its available for presale through me for $18, hit me up!  aliciah.mentorassistant @ gmail.com

I definitely like this as a winter color… kinda of like a winter stormy sky.  When we’re ready for a break from wearing vampy colors and reds all fall and winter long insert in Kristen.  BUT I also love it as a spring shade.  Its got a great pastel blue feel and with it’s grey undertones it works well in more conservative environments like work.  And look how cute it looks paired with a turquoise ring!  It looked so sharp paired with white outfits!  Just like my Kristen, it’s a winner!  And it needs to use its powers for good (Kristen knows what I’m talking about haha)

My ring is the Pretty Stellar ring from mark. available April 20th at my eboutique http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com  If you want it now hit me up and I can order you one.  Its going to be a go to accessory all spring and summer long!  Since my pic is so overexposed you can’t really tell how nicely it sparkles!

St. Patrick’s Day Nails

Well, pre-St. Patrick’s Day nails…  All week I’ve been sporting Essie’s Absolutely Shore with an accent nail of Essie Turquoise & Caicos.  I told you its one of my ALL TIME favorite shades!

Mani with my mark. ring too! (of course)

Let’s just pretend that’s an Irish coffee in there, when really it’s a chai.  I’ve really been obsessing over mint green so the pastel hue of Absolutely Shore has been perfect this week for my mood.  And since it’s been raining all week its instant happiness!

I have grand plans of changing this mani to Essie’s Pretty Edgy, a super bright kelly green, with some gold konad stamping but we’ll see how busy I get between now and tomorrow!  I’ll keep ya posted 😉

ps.  sorry for the crappy image quality… mobile pics.

Bon Fat Tuesday!

I have a special place in my heart for Fat Tuesday.  High school french class wasn’t necessarily the most legit class but for four years Mlle made it something special.  We celebrated Fat Tuesday every year doing some ridiculous arts and craft project, like making paper marionettes (Shout out to Jasper who dances for nickles!).  We also got to eat some serious delish French food, including guest chef appearances by Mr. Mahoney across the hall.  So we celebrated in a French class kind of way.

I still celebrate.  Even though I’ve never made it to New Orleans or ever flashed for beads, I still take the time to theme out my day… and maybe hit up the bar and get some beads anyways…

As promised I themed out my manicure.  A Mardi Gras inspired manicure using the NEW shade Violet Haze from the mark. Nailed-It trend lacquers duo – violet femme shades.  I then stamped China Glaze Passion over it with the swirl design from konad plate m63.  All in all I think it makes for one Bon Fat Tuesday!  (and yes I know clean up around the cuticles is needed… they’re just so raw that I need it to happen naturally – by doing dishes haha )
