maybelline babylips lip balm

My favorite lip product of all time: Maybelline Babylips

The Maybelline Babylips colored lip balm is something that is always in my purse. Although I do have quite a few lipstick I barely ever use them. There are two main reasons for that. First: you can’t have dry lips when applying a lipstick. It simply looks awful. And that…

Ready for the post with my nail polish collection? HA! You have to wait until next week. This week you get to see my base coats. I apply a base coat every time I use colored nail polish even though right now I only have 2 of those. The base coat is extremely important because it keeps your nails nice looking even when you don't have time for a full manicure. It keeps the yellow monster away from your nails (most of the time). It did happen to me that I got yellowish nails even with the base coat. Fortunately, it only happened once, and the nail polish was a green one. When I was younger I wasn't so thorough about it, mostly because I always had nail polish on. I didn't really care if my nails were yellow because nobody saw that. As time went by and I had less time to apply nail polish it became increasingly important for me to have healthy looking nails even when they were "naked". Therefore, these babies went from the status of "maybe" to the status of "must". This is the 4th post in my Manicure Necessities series. You can find links to the rest of the posts here. How many base coats do you have in your collection? Do you always use base coats or do you skip the step if you are in a hurry? Let me know in the comments. If you liked the post please subscribe.

The best advice for 30 something makeup newbies

The idea of putting on makeup scares you? There’s no reason. In fact, I have quite a few friends that when they hear I have a beauty blog are surprised. Why? Because even though I do wear makeup very often I am not an expert in makeup. Not by a…

All manicure necessities in a box – a stingy blogger’s way

I suppose every beauty addict has a collection of what I call “manicure necessities” which consists of nail polishes and other nail-related stuff. One big reason for that might be the fact that these little colorful bottles are an instant gratification. And most of them are cheap.  Probably quite important…
