Maybelline's Color Show Nail Lacquer

Hello Beauties! I have been needing a nice classic red for a while now. I surprisingly only have had two reds in my collection and neither fit the bill. 

So, while at the grocery, I remember Maybelline's Color Show, and quickly went to check them out. What variety of colors! But I had to stay focused on the task at hand...RED.  

Paint the Town! 

It is a perfect classic red. Not to dark or to light.
My first impression upon opening the bottle was it appeared to be slightly thin, which worried me. But once I applied the first coat, I was pleased to see that it still covered very nicely. And if in a hurry, could easily get away with the one coat.

Here I applied two coats, and on the ring finger one coat for comparison of coverage.
It has a nice shine finish.  Above photo has no top coat. 

Overall, I am pleased with this polish.

  • Offers good coverage.
  • Drys pretty quick.
  • At around $3, it is affordable.
  • They offer a huge range of colors.

I will give an update after a couple of days to let you all know how it wears, if it peels or chips.

Have any of you used this polish? If so, what colors and what do you think of them?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mark. Snap to it Mega Custom Color Palette

Hello Beauties! Today I wanted to share my mark. Snap to it Mega Custom Color Palette. 
It works just like the Z-Palette in that it is magnetized, mirrored compact that keeps your  i-mark eye shadows and Good Glowing blushes. 

This palette can hold up to eight shadows, four blushes  or like I have here, four shadows and two blushes. It also comes with two duel ended brushes. They are decent brushes, though I mainly use the fluffy end to smooth and blend the colors. They seem to soft to properly apply the shadows.


The four shadows I have here are Corset, Plum Velvet, Fairy Dust, Whisper. The two blushes are Cameo Glo and After Glo. 

(With flash.)

                                                                         (Natural light.)

                     The i-mark shadows I have, have good color payoff and blend easily. 

 The four shadow swatches:
Whisper, Corset, Plum Velvet, Fairy Dust.
(Natural light.)


The blushes have smooth feel and apply and blend out perfectly. I love both of these colors so  much.

After Glo has golden shimmer to it, but not to much, just enough. Cameo Glo is more matte and soft.

 Blush swatches:
After Glo (top), Cameo Glo (bottom)

(Natural light)


I am a mark. rep, but haven't been as active in the past year as I should have been. I do have my online boutique if you are interested in any of the products. Here is the link if you would like to check it out: 

Do you have any mark. products? If so, what and what do you think of them?

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
