Latest Beauty Buys

Just a few new beauty loves that I had to share.

I passed by this Revlon display for their new polish called "Moon Candy" and I loved the creme polish with the glitter, except this isn't regular small pieces of glitter, more like flakes of glitter!  I brought two home and they are gorgeous and so different than all my other polishes.  I love the effect. 

I didn't get a chance to take pics of my nails before they chipped so they look terrible right now but as you can see from the pictures from The PolishAholic, the glitter is a bit piece-y but it looks so great in the natural light as the colors reflect differently.
go to her post to see the rest of the colors!

Absolutely loving this "liquid lipstick" from NYX.  The lip creams go on like lipstick but very creamy and last for a really long time!  $12 for all 3, you can't beat that!  (Nordstrom Rack is now selling NYX if you guys didn't know.  I know for me it's hard to come by in our drugstores so I was glad to see it at Nordstrom Rack.)
Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Color and Lip Stain is a staple in my every day routine.  Just the right colors, I have the Cheek color in Praline and the Lip Stain in Shy Pink and are perfect for the "I'm wearing make up but not" kind of days.

For awhile now I've use the Anastasia brow powder for my eyebrows but recently discovered the TouchBack Brow Marker and it's awesome!  It totally blends in and is a bit easier in application than powder.  I never thought I'd use a "marker" for my brows but they totally fill in my sparse brows and looks really natural.
 It comes in lots of different colors to perfectly match your brows.

I don't really use lip liners as I usually just slap on a lipstick or lip gloss and be done with it, however the Smashbox Nude Lip Liner completely changed my mind about needing a lip liner.  It really is a "nude" to match your lip color and once I apply it, it doesn't change the color of my lipstick or lip gloss but it does help the color stay a lot longer.

  2. Oh no, every time there is a beauty recommendations post, my wallet's in trouble ;)

    But thanks so much for the head's up on the lip liner... I never even thought about nude, but was annoyed with lipstick application. Nude's such a good idea! :)

  7. OMG...a very useful beauty buys post:) I definitely need to see if HK has that Revlon "Moon Candy" nail polish collection!!! You know, amongst all the colors, i will probably choose the one you got, or the one next to it (grey creme polish with orangy glitter)......and i actually like the big flakes of glitter, something different you know?!hehe the color you chose reminds me of icy cold winters so perfect for now!

    NYX - not heard of that brand before but i love it when you introduce stuff we dont have over here or at least not that i know of:P

    I recenrtly started using a MAC blusher and it's really good but i have also always been quite curious about the brand Laura Mercier.

    And that smashbox nude lip liner sounds interesting!!! I'll have to investigate on that,lol...

    Thx sharing on these lovely beauty products, Tiffany!!!

  9. I, too, am loving the NYX lip creams! I was in Ulta last month looking for some small beauty gifts for Xmas and there was a sale on these so I picked up several of them (some for myself and some for my sis).

    I've been trying to wear brighter lip colors and these are the perfect consistency for my lips. not too slick, not too dry, just right! And the colors are awesome! <3 So glad you like them too!
