ShopLately Haul !!!!

Press Sample

Hi there!

I am back with another polish haul from ShopLately.  These were new to the site since I last visited it so I figured why not check it out.  I found these in the store named Always Fits, they carry a lot of colors of Knocked Up Nails polish as well as many many other things.

Knocked Up Nails retails for $10 each from the Always Fits storefront on ShopLately and is supposed to be Big 5 free which makes it, from what I hear, safe for pregnant women (The store also says it's vegan and gluten free).  Now, no I am not pregnant, but that won't stop me from trying out some new polish!!!

I am all for there being less chemicals in things, so big five free is just better all around for people.  (Although there is something to be said about that classic chemically great smell of old school nail polish!)

The two colors I purchased were Little Lilac Lovie, because...come on you guys, it's purple!!! The swatch photo made it look like the prettiest lilac with some shimmer in it.  The other one was I Earned A Little Blue Box, which is a Tiffany-esque blue.

First up I will show you Little Lilac Lovie.  This is a very pretty light purple.  There is a lot of shimmer to it, and it actually transferred in the picture.  BUT, it is very very sheer.  I think this is about three coats of this all on it's own.  In addition to this, my brush had become unattached from the cap and I couldn't get it back on.  So I just held the brush and painted.  I probably should have used undies of some sort to make it more opaque, but I actually liked how nice and sheer it was on my nails.  The formula itself was fine, and it was nobody's fault the brush became unattached (I have had it happen before).  I did send a note to the shop owners to let them know to check their bottles just in case my was not an isolated incident.

This is over Duri Rejuvacote and topped with Glisten and Glow HK Girl.

This is I Earned A Little Blue Box.  Reminiscent of the boxes and bags you get from a certain jewelry store.  it's not a dupe but it's pretty close.  This is a beautiful turquoise creme polish and was fully opaque in two coats.  Zero problems with the polish or the brush and cap.  This was my favorite of the two, even though deep down I am a purple loving girl.

This is over DUri Rejuvacote and topped with Glisten and Glow HK Girl.

I am happy with these polishes, unsure if I would repurchase because of the price tag, but they are good selections.

I hope you enjoy your day!!!

Until next time #weshoplately

Clarity Vitamin C Serum For Face

Press Sample

Happy Monday! I figured since we are all heading back to work after the weekend, I would toss in a beauty review for you. I really love beauty products, I have always been a collector of them (especially lip products!) But now I am into skincare!!! They are taking over my bathroom.
This one is sponsored by BrandBacker.

When this opportunity came up, I KNEW I had to take them up on it.  I am still looking for the magic thing that will help my face with it's dryness.  I am not going to pass up a chance to try something new, as I never know what is going to work.  (In my case it's probably going to be something super duper expensive when I find my holy grail)

I was offered a chance to try a face serum.  This is the Clarity Vitamin C Serum for face.  This serum is a clear liquid that comes in a glass bottle with a dropper for use.   The instructions say to use about 6 or so drops on this on your clean face.  It can also be used under your regular moisturizer.

This is the information provided on the Amazon website about this product:

Formulated to Smooth the Skin, Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Treat Dark Spots.
Potent Antioxidant Blend Featuring Organic Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Herbal Extracts.
Stimulate Collagen Production for Radiant and Youthful Looking Skin.
Try Clarity risk-free! Backed by our 100% Money Back Guarantee!
Made in the USA to Strict FDA Standards by cGMP Certified Laboratory Without Parabens or Alcohol.

Application was easy, although the first time I used it I moved my hand and the drops I had put there had leaked everywhere.  I just had to keep the bottle somewhere where I could put the dropper back in, then apply the serum and then screw the dropper back on.  The serum isn't thick so you have to be careful.    I just rubbed my hands together and then all over my face.  It was lightweight, almost no scent and it absorbed in almost immediately.

I don't know if it is because my face is better hydrated now, but when I first started using it (about a week or so ago) my face literally just absorbed this right in and was dry.  Now it takes a smudge bit longer so I think my face is now just better hydrated.

I felt like in one week of use my skin feels better and that some of my fine lines aren't as noticeable.  I think that with continued use the rest of my wrinkles will look better.  Nothing is going to happen over night, or in one weekin general.

More good news?  It's available on Amazon and it eligible for Prime! (I love Prime, even with the price increase it's a great deal for me!) Right now it's $39.99 on Amazon, but with the code EUN15OFF, you can get 15% off!!
Just head on over here Clarity Vitamin C Serum to get yours

All things considered, this isn't my holy grail products but it is good.  It's not knock your socks off wonderful but it is working very well on my skin. I would consider repurchasing this as long as I had a sale code.

Do you have a favorite face serum? Or other favorite face product?
I am always in the market for one!
