Beauty Faves of the Moment 3/10/10

IMPORTANT! IF YOU DONT WANT TO READ THIS, I MADE A RECORDED VIDEO OF IT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. COMMENT TO TELL ME IF IT'S A GOOD IDEA OR A WASTE OF TIME! THANKS!

Hey all and welcome to a new occasional segment here on Polish Our Planet called Beauty Faves of the Moment! Basically I'll just tell you what I have been loving lately and a little bit about the products! Just a heads up, I am absolutely NOT being paid or sponsored by any of the companies mentioned in this segment, it's all honest opinions from yours truly! So let's get into it!
First up are these lovely OPIs (from left: Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter) from the new OPI Alice in Wonderland Collection! If these babies have not caught you attention yet then, hello? You have GOT to check them out!! They are packed full of fun combinations of glitter perfectly inspired by the new movie, and what can I say? I'm a sucker for some blingin' nails (don't get me wrong, I'm a creme lover too) and these do NOT disappoint! They are sold out now everywhere around me, so snatch these up while you can!!! Swatches soon :)
Next, I have a non-nail product to show ya, hence the name "Beauty Faves of the Moment." It's Prime Time by Bare Escentuals and this cool little click pen squeezes just the right amount of primer onto my eyelids! What's an eye primer? Well, this one prevents creasing, makes every color applied on to last ALL DAY and it makes any eyeshadow you put on more vibrant! It's just awesome, what else can I tell you? Most every morning, I click the applicator one or two times and then smear a dollop of it on each of my eyelids and up to the browbone. Then I use the spongy tip to delicately blend the primer into my skin and right after that, apply my usual eyeshadow. Voila! That's all there is to it!! To be honest, I didn't even test this one out before buying, I just took my friend's word for it being awesome! Luckily, she was right :)
Now, back to a nail product. This is non-acetone "Instant Polish Remover" from my local drugstore--CVS. Well, just the name alone instantly intrigued me along with the interesting packaging. I was running low on polish remover anyways so I picked it up for a test-out. FYI, I never really buy my remover at salon stores. Although it may work well, it's far too pricey for me... I'd rather spend that money on the polish colors themselves! Anyway, back to the product. So, I opened it up and saw this spongy thing inside with little holes in it... weird! What you are supposed to do is stick a cotton ball in one of the holes and lightly moisten it with the liquid below. (Or, as I tried, stick your fingers in the holes and rub them around a bit, whatever directions!) What I found out was this remover works just as well as acetone (or better), without parching my cuticles! A must have from now on! And remember... from the drugstore!!

Lanterns!! Who couldn't love them? Especially these that I picked up in Chinatown recently with my friends. I can't wait to hang these up in my room for decorations! More pics below.


So, I hope you all enjoyed this post, not my usual. Swatching has been tough because of the rain lately. I like all my swatches to be done in natural light, it's a much better depiction of the color.

Anyway! Follow me on this blog and comment! I love to hear from you guys. Best of luck with surviving the last bit of winter and have an earthy day!
