Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 Runway Nail Set

What it is:
A three-piece nail polish collection featuring shades directly from the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 runway show.

What it does:

Discover runway-inspired shades in this Sephora-exclusive collection. Each shade is inspired by the Burberry Camouflage Bucket Bag, a signature piece from the Autumn/Winter 2015 collection and is formulated for a lasting, high-gloss finish. The three-piece collection is presented in a Burberry gift box that celebrates the runway.

This collection contains the following colors:

Cadet Green No. 206, Khaki Green No. 205, and Poppy Black No. 299. 

Verdict: I must admit this set made me a fan of the Burberry polishes. The formula was very reminiscent of DIOR nail polish to me. No streaking and great color payoff. The polish color matched the bottle with just two coats. Overall a great luxury nail polish.

If you would like to pick up a Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 Runway Nail Set it is available for $66.00 at Sephora. Click the link for more details: SEPHORA

Laura Mercier Chrome Extravagance Collection Fall 2015

 Playful. Sparkling. Glamorous. Reliving the glorious days of a carefree glitzy age. Electric lights and disco balls. A rediscovery of glam. Fun fuses with fabulous. And nightclubbing is necessary. The look is all dressed up - where daring colours crash and collide. A festive cocktail of exhilarating shades for the jet set. Shimmering shadow foils with chic glitter effects dance on lids. Lips are magnificently bold or nude. Boundaries no longer exist. So explore and experiment!

Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm -  This tempting treat transforms lips with an ultra-thin balmy formula that provides the comfort of a lip balm, the coverage of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss ($25).
Amaretto Swirl (light pink beige)
Blood Cherry (brick red)
Crème de Cassis (violet purple)

Eye Chromes Palette - A limited edition eye palette with a unique, innovative pigment emulsion that can be used dry for a shimmer foil effect or wet for a high coverage metal chrome effect - both with soft, velvety texture and strong payoff ($48).
Colors from L-R: Iced Nickel, Purple Chrome, Blue Steel, Aluminum Grey

Verdict: I absolutely love this fall collection. The chrome palette is amazing. The shadows have a true metallic color payoff  and are highly pigmented. I can not wait to play around with this palette some more. The lip colors are also on point with falls trend of nude, crimson, and berry lips. Laura Mercier's Chrome Extravagance collection has won me over ten-fold especially since the Spring collection was such a letdown.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks

I cannot believe that it has been so long since I have posted. My apologies for the gap between my last post and now. I am trying to keep up with all of the new Fall beauty products being released.

I recently picked up a few liquid lipstick colors from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I have fallen in love with this brand. I find their products to be well priced with a great color payoff. Obviously I'm not the only one who thinks so; every time I go into a Macys store with an Impulse Beauty Section half of the Anastasia Beverly Hills display is always sold out.

What it is:
An ultra-saturated liquid lipstick that delivers an intense matte finish. A single application gives you a vibrant long-wearing color that stays on all day. Each liquid lipstick retails for $20.

Colors from L-R:

Paint ( super-slick, cobalt blue)
Sugar Plum (rich, berry pink)

Verdict: These liquid lipsticks are phenomenal. I love how smoothly the color applies on the lips and it dries in seconds. I loved the Sugar Plum color. It was so easy to work with however Paint requires some serious liquid lipstick know how. If you do not know how to apply liquid lipsticks on properly then I would recommend staying away from the crazier liquid lipstick colors such as "Midnight" and "Paint." Overall, I am very impressed with these Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks and will be buying some more colors in the future.

* If you would like to pick up your own Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Color they are available for sale on the companies website, as well as, Macy's.
