The new Viva Glam VI

viva-glam.jpg

I have been a long time fan of Viva Glam lipsticks. I love the color they choose and it’s nice to know that a little of your makeup indulgence is going to a great cause. MAC has recently released the newest in their Viva Glam collection and I love the color!

MAC Viva Glam

In 1994, M·A·C introduced VIVA GLAM, an outspoken deep red that was universal in its appeal and its glamour. In 1997, a second lipstick was created VIVA GLAM II, a lightly pinked mauve. VIVA GLAM III, a foxy brown plum lipstick was launched in 2000. VIVA GLAM IV, a heartful rose charged with gold, was introduced in March 2002. In March 2004, Viva Glam V makes its debut, a clear, smooth, pure neutral pink with a delicious Lustre finish! VIVA GLAM VI, the newest member of the VIVA GLAM family, is a warm terracotta-plum with pearl finish. Wear it alone or finish it off with a coordinating coat of VIVA GLAM VI Lipglass. In the spirit of all Viva Glam, every cent raised goes to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Quick relief for damaged nails.

My nails have taken a beating this winter and have ended up really thin and brittle. My nails used to grow without much issue and I didn’t have to invest any time. Now my nails seem to be splitting or breaking and I needed something to bring them back to their former strength.

I just found some amazing nail products from a company called nailtiques, I am pleased to see how quickly they are working. Within the first use I could see a difference and now 2 weeks in my nails are strong and healthy again I have listed my favorite products from the nailtiques line.

Reader Request: An Update!

mac_spice_it_up1.jpg 

Last Friday I posted a Reader Request from Sarah asking for help finding the perfect red lipstick!  I gave her a few suggestions, and today she emailed back her verdict!

Hi Jocelyn!

I went to the MAC store this weekend – SUCCESS! I tried on a ton of shades (OK, maybe 5) and settled on your recommendation, Spice It Up! I love it, and have gotten several compliments on it already. It’s the perfect color and feels great!

I also bought a liner (Cremestick Liner, Red Enriched) — that boosts the red, and hopefully makes it last longer.
I know MAC has been around forever, I just wish I discovered it sooner – I could have saved a LOT of money!

Thanks for your help!

Sarah


In the Navy!

I used to paint my nails blue in college and never thought I would be using it again on my nails. Granted my blue of choice in college was electric blue and the new blue nail polish colors are a more grown up navy. I have been seeing blue polish for awhile and I finally gave in, and to my surprise I am really loving the color! It’s such a dark blue it almost looks black on my nails but the color it the most amazing shimmery shade of Navy.

A few different brands featuring Navy nail polish:
