Favorite Nail Polish for the Summer! Look tanner!

Hi beautiful!

Okay, so I know that in the summer e v e r y o n e wants to look tan. I know I do! My favorite nail polish to wear in the summertime is Nicole by OPI It Starts With Me. It's a beautiful champagne metallic shade that elongates your fingers, in my OPInion, making them slimmer. (See what I did there with the "OPInion"? haha) Usually, I'd wear pretty reds, hot pinks, neon oranges, and electrifying blues in the summer, but I've just been obsessed with this shade because it really gives you that sexy, neutral, tan look, which is absolutely beautiful. If you ever saw a Victoria's Secret summer collection advertising wether on TV, or print, they don't wear crazy colored nail polish, only really natural/neutral polish.




 Sorry If the lighting in the picture isn't that great, but there's how it looks on!

I hope you enjoy this post, and I'll talk to you soon!

Until next time...
xoxo

Review: Covergirl's New "BB Cream"

Hi pretties! Sorry I haven't been blogging lately, it's just been hard with school, boys, friends, etc. But now, it's finally summer!!! I'm so happy and excited for the months ahead. Anyways, I wanted to make this post on a new product I found at my local Wal-Mart. It's the Covergirl cgsmoothers BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer+SPF 15. I haven't seen this product in any other store except for this Wal-Mart. I was looking to buy one of my favorite drugstore tinted moisturizers (Covergirl Aqua cgsmoothers SPF 15 tinted moisturizer) in a darker shade because summer's here and I only own the light shade. But they didn't have the tinted moisturizer in a darker shade, instead they had their "BB Cream". You're probably wondering why I put quotation marks on BB Cream. That's because this product...isn't a BB Cream.

BB Creams is a very popular makeup and skincare product in Asia that is now branching into the United States. My cousins in Asia are obsessed with it! The main difference between the ones in Asia and America is that the ones manufactured in Asia have whitening properties because in Asia fair/light skin is the trend. BB Creams are light, with a medium/light coverage that is weightless. It has more than a tinted moisturizer, but less than the regular ol' foundation. BB Creams are amazing for your skin. They contain skin beneficial ingredients that protect and nourish your skin.

The Covergirl BB Cream is nothing more than their tinted moisturizer...renamed. Now, don't get me wrong, I love their tinted moisturizer. It provides nice, sheer coverage that is very light and gives a nice dewy look. I don't feel right that they renamed their product to "BB Cream" because it basically is their famous tinted moisturizer renamed. The formulation isn't any different, and there are no new skin beneficial ingredients. I do highly recommend this product because it is light and provides sheer coverage that will hide redness, even out the skin tone but not cover pimples. It also gives my skin a healthy, natural dewy look that I love to wear for school and the summer time.

So, as you can see the products contain the same things from ingredients to packaging. It is basically repackaged tinted moisturizer. I actually really like the product, but I wish they didn't call it a BB cream because it isn't one, just sticking with the tinted moisturizer name would've been just as fine.

IN A SHORT:
I really like this tinted moisturizer. It provides nice, sheer coverage that evens out my skintone and makes my skin look nice, healthy and dewy. It gives a certain glow to it. It isn't at all a BB cream, but a nice ol' tinted moisturizer.

Until next time...
