Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Roulette Rush (620)

It has been a while since the last time I bought a nail polish. I have been just stash-shopping my old polishes lately.
I love Revlon classic polishes and they are quite a big part of my sizable nail polish collection. However, I disliked the previous Colorstay polishes since they all stained my nails and smelled like burnt rubber. So naturally I was a bit skeptical to try the new Gel Envy from the same line, but it turned out to be nothing short of amazing.
I chose Roulette Rush which is a bright red with blue undertones.

NARS Sheer Lipstick Roman Holiday

NARS Sheer Lipstick Roman Holiday is "the light pink" lipstick for me.
I regret that I ever wandered away from this gorgeous pink that instantly brightens up my complexion.

Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks Sapphire, Pink Opal, Grey Pearl

The recent Laura Mercier sale (Buy 2 Caviar Sticks Get 3) was too nice to pass up.
I had a couple of Caviar Sticks a while ago but I ended up giving them to my sister who enjoys minimalistic eye makeup. I have wanted them again since now I almost always base my eyelids with cream type eyeshadows for more color depths.
I picked up Sapphire, Pink Opal, and Grey Pearl this time.

Koh Gen Do Makeup Color Base

After I whined about how great Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture foundation is but maybe lacking 2% to become a perfect foundation for me, the team Koh Gen Do reached out and sent me a generous sample set of the Koh Gen Do Makeup Color Base to try.
They suggested a sheer makeup base with subtle color correction might solve the issue without having to sacrifice other good things going on with this foundation.

Zoya Lael

For some reason, I have been quite lazy about doing my nails lately.
I was just rotating nudes, reds and light vamps all summer long - mostly Essie Ballet Slippers, Butter London Come To Bed Red, and Essie Bahama Mama.
I would easily go on for more than a week without refreshing my manis, too. The fact most polishes stay very well on my nails only with minimal tip wears didn't really help, either.

To shake up this boredom, I broke out one of my favorite vamps (it doesn't really make sense, I know), Zoya Lael.
This is another deep vamp with creme finish, but I can certainly appreciate the difference in the undertone.
