NOTD: November 9, 2015

This fall-friendly manicure is a butter London set I picked up last year (from this haul). I used butter London Nail Foundation as my base, 2 coats of butter London Tramp Stamp, 1 coat of butter London The 444 on the accent, and Orly Top2Bottom as the topper.

Tramp Stamp is a lot more red in the bottle, but as you can see here, more brown on the nail.

BzzAgent Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

Please note I received these products free to try from BzzAgent. My opinion below is my own and besides receiving these products for free, I was not compensated for my opinion.

Contents of my Bzzkit:

As a fan of Cover Girl mascaras in general, I was really excited to receive one free, I had the choice of: Full Lash Bloom, Clump Crusher, LashBlast Volume, or LashBlast Fusion. 

I've tried and like LashBlast Fusion in the past (see past review here) and couldn't resist using it again!

I love that it not only volumizes and lengthens, it also adds a hint of a curl to my stick-straight lashes!

I don't have to worry about smudging throughout a long day at work and yet it comes off quite easily with eye make-up remover!

The wand has short spiky plastic bristles which is easy to use and deposits the perfect amount of mascara without any clumping (don't you hate it when mascara clumps or hardens throughout the day to leave you with painful eyelashes?)

I would recommend checking out this mascara if volume and lengthen are most important to you!

I am definitely interested in trying one of the other mascaras out with the $2 off coupons BzzAgent provided me with!

What mascara is your fav?

Love this one! It's almost like a dirty chalkboard! This is 2 coats of Ciate Velvet Tuxedo (from this haul), I used butter London Nail Foundation as the base, and topped it with 2 coats of NYC Matte Me Crazy to give it that satiny finish.

What do you think? Are you a fan of satin finish manis?

This frosty mani, definitely looks like something Elsa from Frozen would rock! This is 2 coats of Julep Celia (from this haul) with Sparitual Looking Glass (from this haul). I used NYC Matte Me Crazy as the base and Orly Top2Bottom as the topper!

Pleasantly surprised with both polish! Celia changes colour a bit, it's more blue in direct light and more green in indirect light. Looking Glass is a solid frosty silver!

Does this remind you of Elsa too?

October Empties!

Another month, and more empties! I did well this month with 4 full size products used up!

L to R: Cetaphil Fragrance Free Moisturizing Lotion, Aveeno Positively Nourishing Shine Conditioner

Cetaphil Fragrance Free Moisturizing Lotion: This is a very old product, I believe Cetaphil packaging has changed twice since this bottle. This is run-of-the-mill moisturizer, I used this primarily on my legs when they got dry. It does the job, but is nothing special. I prefer fragranced moisturizers, so it's unlikely I'll repurchase.

Aveeno Positively Nourishing Shine Conditioner: from this haul. I liked this conditioner, but it is by no means my favourite. It does the job of detangling hair, I don't know that it really added more shine, and it was the basic Aveeno fragrance. Unlikely to repurchase.

L to R: Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel in Mad About You, Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes Night Calming, Givenchy Very Irresistible

Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel in Mad About You: BBW describes the fragrance as soft peonies & black currant with creamy vanilla musk. I would say this is a floral fragrance with hints of vanilla, I like it! Also, BBW has my favourite formula of antibacterial gels, plus like a million scents to choose from! I would definitely repurchase, but half the fun is trying new scents!

Neutrogena Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes Night Calming: I like these wipes better than the Neutrogena basic ones! Love the gentle calming scent which in no way irritates my eyes! Effective and calming! Perfect step at removing make-up before bed (or before shower on non-lazy days!) Will always repurchase!

Givenchy Very Irresistible: from this haul. Sephora lists the notes of this fragrance as; centifolia rose, peony rose, fantasia rose, passion rose, emotion rose, verbena leaf, and star anise. While this is a floral fragrance (who knew about all the different rose scents?), I don't mind this one. While I wouldn't purchase for myself (since I have about 5 full-size perfumes on the go right now), it is a nice floral fragrance without any powder hints that I don't mind!

What products did you finish up in October?
