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.

Perfume Diary - Burberry Brit Sheer, Joie Folle De Joie, Versace Bright Crystal

I figured I would never reach the bottom of my fragrance sample box at this rate, and I was also inspired by Larie's "Scent Of The Week" series. So here is another installment of my Perfume Diary featuring three different scents at once.

NARS Blush Deep Throat

The ridiculous name aside, NARS Blush Deep Throat looks quite harmless and even boring. I mean, just look at it. It is a slightly shimmery peachy pink - tame and plain.
I usually much prefer cool toned pink and think there are many more interesting blush colors that NARS offers. I would have never picked it up for myself if it wasn't for the GWP deal.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box August 2014

I was offered to experience POPSUGAR Must Have Box, which is a subscription box that has a little bit of everything - full sized beauty, fashion, and lifestyle items.
Here are what I received in the August box. (This post is picture heavy.)
