Spring 2014 - Pixi Beauty Nail Polish Pictures and Review

Press Sample

Pixi Beauty has released three nail polishes for Spring 2014 and guess what?  I like all three!!!  There is the neon Oh So Orange, the lightly shimmery yellow Liquid Sunshine and the pale shimmering mint green named Lime Luster.  They are pictured in that order in the photo below.

review, swatches, Oh So Orange, Liquid Sunshine, Lime Luster

You can see the light shimmer that is characteristic of both Liquid Sunshine and Lime Luster. And you can see that on the left, Oh So Orange is a nearly traffic cone flourescent neon orange. What really surprised me was that Oh So Orange was my favorite of the set. I'd seen some pictures on Instagram and thought I would like the Lime Luster best. (It's my second fave in this group). So not only was I surprised to see the shimmers in Lime Luster and Liquid Sunshine, but I was really surprised by how much I adore Oh So Orange.

I am SO READY for summer with this color!!!!

All we need is some flip-flops, sunscreen, and sunglasses and we're good to go!!!

review, swatches, Oh So Orange, Liquid Sunshine, Lime Luster

If you were to compare it right next to an orange traffic cone, I do believe the cone would be a shade brighter.  However, the coverage on this polish was amazing.  I'm a two-coat kind of person so I used two coats in all my pictures but this neon didn't need a white base coat to make it pop like so many do.  All three of these polishes are happy, happy, happy and you will feel your spirit lift as you wear these.  

The next polish in my Pixi Trio is the delightfully sunny shimmer Liquid Sunshine.

Don't you just want to jump into your shorts and tank top RIGHT NOW?!?!?!

That's right...this is a full coverage yellow!!  That doesn't happen often.  The shimmer isn't perceptible to the eye really, but more just adds some luster to the nails.

The sheen is able to be seen a little more in Lime Luster, my second favorite from the set of three for Spring 2014.

Seriously!  Just so pretty, I totally die.  When I go to the beach or the pool, I put my hair up to keep it from getting wet and kinky frizzy.  So add a hair clip and I am totally ready to go!

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster Review

Today we're going to talk about Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster, ($56/1fl oz), which I was invited to sample by IFabbo. IFabbo is a blogging group that I am fortunate to belong to. The first thing I want you to know is that I have no pictures of my own. Sad face. :( Don't you just hate reviews without pictures? Yeah, I do too. I was recently out of state and this somehow got left behind, but I was able to try it before it walked away to someone who seemed to need it more. (That's the story I'm telling myself because it makes me feel better).

skin care, serum, review, Ifabbo

I used this as a serum, putting it on after cleansing and before moisturizing. It has Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and Algae Extract that work to help restore moisture balance, helping to relieve dryness, making those nasty fine lines plump up and look better. I found that this did help my dryness when I used it in conjunction with my regular regimen, and you should know that I have really dry skin. Also, it has a light lavender scent, which I really love, but a lot of people may not. The scent doesn't linger, so you can't use it for your scent of the day. ;) Use this as you would any other serum, applying it to skin and throat areas.

There are a lot of reviews for the Dermatologica Skin Hydrating Booster online and I'm sure you can find one that matches your skin type.  You can purchase this on the Dermalogica website as well as places like Amazon.
