How is everyone? :) I'm doing well..not that anyone asked..haha!

But anyways, I'm back today with my 4th NOTD post!! :)

OPI Nail Polish in Every Month Is Oktoberfest 

I'm. In. Love. With. This. Color!! Aaah!! I can't stop staring at my nails! Haha, In the picture above, they look purple, but depending on the lighting, they can be burgundy. Which I like. We all know how big burgundy (or oxblood) is this season. It's probably my favorite Fall trend ever!! I'm obsessed! 

But yes, I got this on sale for $7.99 (canadian dollars) at a local drugstore and it's fantastic! I love OPI and they never disappoint me!

Here are some other photos with different lighting:

Aaaaalrihgt, I could go on and on about how much I loove this nail polish, but I'll stop myself here. So that no one dies of boredom! haha

As always, and sorry for sounding like a broken record in every post, thank you sososo much for following/commenting/reading :) 

I just reached 40 followers!! ^^ and i know that sounds like a joke to some people, but it's a very big accomplishment for me :) I never expected this blog to be a success!!

Review: NARS Blush in S-- Appeal

Hello beauty lovers :)

Today's post will be a full review of the NARS blush in the color "S-- Appeal".

This lovely product is a bit pricey. In Canada, it retails for $32.00. I know..that's a lot for blush..but in my opinion, it's worth it!

The pigmentation is just perfect..for my skin tone anyways. I can see how this product wouldn't be as visible on someone with darker skin, though. But the coverage is buildable, which is always a good thing.

It is a matte finish, which means there is no sparkles, glitter, shimmer, sheen, anything! I personally am a really big fan of this, since I like all my face makeup to be matte.

The color, however, gives your face a nice, glowy, healthy look, without the greasy look. The pinky peach color is very natural and pretty.

Like I said, this color may not be visible on girls with darker skin. Unless you pile it on, which I don't recommend! But if you have very pale skin like mine (porcelain or ivory), this color will look amazing on you!

The only 2 downsides I could think of for this product are the following:

1) The packaging can get really messy really quickly.
For example, if you apply your foundation and other face products with your fingers and you touch the packaging of these blushes after, you'll see your fingerprints all over.

2) If you pile too much on, it makes your face looks cakey.
Don't layer too much of this on your cheeks..If you're fair skinned, only 2 little swirls of this with your blush brush is enough for one cheek.

These downside don't really bother me too much, but I can see how some girls would be bothered by them. Other than that, I say this blush is perfect!

I know it's pricey, but there's a lot of product, so the chances of me actually finishing this product is very small. I think this will last me more years than it is supposed to be kept! And I really do not regret buying this! It's superb!

Packaging: 7/10
Pigmentation: 8/10
Longevity: 8/10
Texture: 10/10
Application: 9/10

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

I hope this was helpful! I have a lot of reviews planned for this month, so look out for those.

 Also, I'm thinking of doing a nail polish collection post. Let me know if that is something you would like to see :)

Thanks so much for following/commenting/noticing me!! *virtual hugs* :)
