Which Nail Appliques Are Worth the Price Tag?

Nail Appliqués have never been hotter but don’t be deceived as not all are created equal. The market is pretty saturated with so many different styles that is easy to be won over by a design only to have it start peeling off within 12 hours of putting them on.

I’ve tried quite a few brands so do you want to see which ones survived the scrutiny? Click after the jump!

Review+Swatches - Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

MAYBELLINE just came out with some new products that I’ll be reviewing and swatching in the next few weeks. First up is Dream Bouncy Blush, a lightweight spongy-type formula. When I first saw them I thought they were going to be like the mousse blushes they came out with a little while ago but they are so not like those.

Kate and May Say Hello to Eyes

Maybelline-falsies-mascara-#2 Kate-Somerville-Lash-Enhancing-Eye-Makeup-RemoverI have my favorite mascara that I’ve mentioned a ba-zillion times here so not many get thumbs up from me but this  MAYBELLINE Falsies Flared by Volum’ Express Mascara ($7.77 @ drugstores nationwide) does. Not only does it define lashes but it gives them volume and lots of it with the Kera fibers in it. Yes, things can get clumpy if you are not used to a serious mascara, like this one, so I would say this one is not for the novice.

KATE SOMERVILLE True Lash ($35/1.7oz @ comes into the fold when it’s time to remove the above mascara. Part of the reason I am so loyal to … this one, is how easy it is to remove. Taking off most mascaras takes a lot of tugging and pulling in the eye area and even then, most don’t remove every speck of black but this one does. It also conditions lashes, hydrates the whole eye area with chamomile, aloe vera and a major ingredient called SymLash226 Complex that boosts keratin production, so more lashes.

Fall Product Standouts – Eyes

ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color EyeShadow Duo in Waves ($30 @ – I’m still all over strong colors on the eyes and teal always looks great next to brown eyes.

MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Eye Studio Color Explosion in Pink Punch ($10.99 @ drugstores nationwide) – I’ve used all of these colors over the past couple of weeks and even all at one time. The price makes this one worth it.

CLARINS Instant Liner in Black ($26 @ – a super flexible tip makes helps this liquid liner hug the curve of the eye for a great application.

SEPHORA Eye Bling ($6 @ – really make eyes stand out with these cute crystals with adhesive on them.

BOBBI BROWN Rich Color Eye Shadow in Pink Silk ($24 @ from the Marrakesh Chic Collection – a great neutral with just a touch of shimmer makes this a great everyday shade for many skin tones.

DIOR DiorShow Liner Waterproof in Plum ($29 @ – liners should all be made this great! It’s really smooth, non-tugging and stays put after setting.

Line 'Em with the New Liners from Maybelline

Maybelline-Master-Drama-by-EyeStudio-Eye-Liner-in-Sapphire-Strength Why do some companies call some makekup products 24-hour in the name? Really? 24-hours? The latest one with this claim is MAYBELLINE Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner. While I got about 6 hours total,  that’s enough for me. Maybe if you still see traces of color, they can claim that? I don't quite know. Why didya just have to claim so many hours, Maybelline? It’s disheartening to see because I always say “yeah right” right after reading something like that. Anyway, this one rocks, I have to say. The Sapphire Strength shades shown here is like a metallic blue that really makes my dark brown eyes pop and the formula is tre-smooth going on. $6.99 @
