NOTD: Covergirl Leading Lady

Hello! I have been one who stays away from drugstore nail polishes just because I have bad luck with them chipping soon after I paint them. As I was browsing the makeup isle, I saw this color and knew I had to have it. It is a beautiful fuschia colored nail polish by Covergirl Outlast. It is in the color Leading Lady.
I was completely impressed with this nail polish. It only needed 2 coats and it lasted for a good 3 days before chipping with Essies 3-in-1 top coat. The brush is a good size that makes it easy to apply. The only thing I didn't like was the packaging because the square top makes it kind of hard to hold. I think I only spent about $3 on this polish. If you are looking for a good drugstore polish I recommend giving these a try. I plan on picking up a couple more.

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Review

Hello! Today I wanted to review Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. Fiber lashes have been becoming pretty popular and more brands are coming out with their own version. Lauren was nice enough to send me a couple of Younique products to try. I had been wanting to try fiber lashes for a while, and was thrilled when she asked me. 

I applied the fiber lashes to my right eye (left side in picture) and just used one coat of mascara on the other. As you can tell there is a pretty big different. The fiber lashes give quite a bit of volume and extra length.

The product come in a nice hard case. It looks like a case for sunglasses. It comes with the Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers. To apply, you start by applying a thin layer of a mascara of your choice. After it dries, apply the transplanting gel evenly to your lashes. While that is still wet, apply the fibers. Then, seal them with another coat of the transplanting gel.  I only apply one coat, but the directions say you can apply another layer of fibers if desired. Just make sure to set each layer with another coat of transplanting gel. I didn't have too many issues with the fibers falling onto my cheek, but whenever I did they easily wipe away. It took me a few tries to find the best method to apply it. The first couple of times I found that it gave nice length, but not too much volume. Focusing more on base of my lashes with the transplanting gel and the fibers fixed that problem. This product is $29. 

Lauren also sent me a mineral pigment in the color Sexy, a shimmery, light gold color. I have been wearing this on top of Maybelline's Color Tattoo in barely branded. It looks really nice with a light brown color in the crease. I don't normally like to use loose pigments because they are a mess, but this color is too pretty not to use. I did find that it creased throughout the day, but I do have fairly oily skin and have that issue with other brands as well. This product is $10. I tried to take a picture of the eye look I do with this pigment, but I couldn't get the coloring to look right unfortunately.

(Left-over barely branded, Right-alone)

Final impression: I am impressed with the fiber lashes. I am not one who wears false lashes, so this product is perfect to make a night time look more dramatic. I love how it makes my eyes look. They last all day and come off easily with makeup remove. It is a bit pricey, but I would recommend this product if you are looking to make your lashes a bit more dramatic. 

I wore the fiber lashes at a wedding last weekend. This product is wearable, but there is still a difference. If you are interested in checking out the fiber lashes or pigments click here.

Blog Changes: New Name

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great week. I have been talking about some changes that I was going to do to the blog for a while, and I am finally finished with most of the big changes. Obviously the biggest change is the new name. I decided on Hint of Blush.  While I liked Altogether Beautiful, there was no URL available for it. And in an attempt to make my blog more "professional" I wanted a URL. To get to the blog you can either still use or
I changed the name on my header, but a new one will be coming soon :) I wanted things to still look like my blog and didn't want to change too much too fast.
I have a lot of ideas for future posts. I have about 2 weeks left of school, then plan on going full force with writing! I can't wait to have more time to commit to this blog.
If you want to keep up with new posts please follow me on twitter or bloglovin. 
I also finally created a button. If you would like to exchange buttons I would love to add yours to my "blog love" page (above)!

Wet n' Wild Fergie Highlighter Review

Hello! Finally it is the weekend! I have been so busy during the week, so weekends are really my only time to blog. Today I wanted to share a highlighter by Wet n' Wild. It is part of the Fergie Centerstage Collection in Rose Champagne Glow. It is a beautiful, shimmery highlighter that is perfect for summer.

This highlighter gives a beautiful, warm glow to the face.
Texture: This highlighter is so soft. It is easy to apply with a brush and blends nicely.
Color: Like the name says, it is a nice rosey, champagne color. it is a It can be worn with a light application, or you can make it more dramatic with a couple of layers.
Without Flash: L-Dry, R-Wet
With Flash: L-Dry, R-Wet
 Packaging: The packaging feel kind of cheap to me. It probably won't survive too many drops. It is on the bulky side also. The product itself comes in a nice marble design. (Right after I wrote this post, the whole product fell out of the packaging. It is in one piece, so it is still usable.. I just have to be extra careful so it doesn't break. I'm not really sure why it fell out. I didn't drop it or anything.)

Price: $5.62 at Walmart
It is a baked product, so it can be worn wet or dry. I have only worn it dry, because I think wet will make it look too shimmery. I just like to have a natural glow. While I don't like the packaging, the product is nice. I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap highlighter. I think it would also be beautiful as an inner corner highlight for your eyes.

What are your favorite highlighter?
I have been thinking about trying one by Mac, not sure what color though.

Sephora Sol de Rio Bronzing Powder Review

Hello! Today I wanted to do a review on Sephora's Sol de Rio Bronzing Powder. I bought this powder a few weeks ago and have used it every day since I got it. I have never been one to contour my face every day, but I have been more since getting this. Nothing too dark, just a little bit under my cheek bones, on my temples and I to contour my nose. Its nice to have a little extra color on my face, especially since the weather is warmer.
 Color: This bronzer is matte and is the perfect shade of warm brown for light skin. It isn't too muddy and looks natural. It is extremely easy to blend the color and although the color is light, it is buildable. Unfortunately it only comes in this one color, so it may not work for medium or dark skin tones.
Packaging: It comes in a beautiful package. It seems like good quality and snaps shut. It has a full size mirror on the inside, which is nice.

Size: This product is huge! It comes with 25 grams/ .88 ounces. I'm pretty sure this bronzer will last forever! 
Scent: I was a little bit surprised by the scent. It smells like baby powder. It's not bad, but it might bother some people. 
Price: $22 exclusively at Sephora.
I love this bronzer. It is perfect for adding a little bit of color to my fair skin, while still looking natural. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a good bronzer. It is kind of pricey, but I think it's worth it for the amount of product you get. It is limited edition, so if you are interested in it, make sure you pick one up soon.
