REVIEW - L'Oréal Collection Privée Color Riche lipstick - Eva's nude

Hi everyone!

A good nude lipstick is probably my most favorite go to lipstick shade, because it is versatile and if you find the right one, looks beautiful on the lips and complements your skin tone. That is why I wanted to talk about the L'Oréal Collection Privée Color Riche lipsticks and about one in particular; Eva's nude. This collection is a range of six different nude lipsticks, created so that there is a perfect nude lipstick for every skin tone. The range consists of; Jennifer's nude (medium-olive skin tones), Freida's nude (honey skin tones), Doutzen's nude (fair-light skin tones), Liya's nude (deeper skin tones), Julianne's nude (fair skin tones) and finally Eva's nude (light-medium skin tones) which is the one I have.
First of all, I really like the formula. It is very creamy and smooth and applies easily. The pigmentation is quite good as well and it has a really nice satin finish. It also hydrates the lips and has great longevity. It does not feel like a drugstore lipstick at all when you wear it.
As for the shade; I have fair skin tone and Eva's nude looks really flattering on me. I like that it is neither too light nor too brown, which is what I do not like in a nude lipstick. The only thing I do not like about it is the smell. It is quite strong and somehow it kind of  reminds me of soap.
As we all know, finding the perfect nude lipstick is quite the task. Very often we end up with a nude shade that makes us look dull. So I love the idea of an entire range of nude lipsticks to make it that much easier for all the lipstick lovers out there. I definitely recommend checking out this range and see which shade suits you best!

The L'Oréal Collection Privée Color Riche lipsticks retail for $8.99

REVIEW - Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish 120 Bare Dare

I have talked about the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat before (which is still my favorite!) but I just could not leave this beautiful shade from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection unnoticed on my blog! The shade 120 Bare Dare is the perfect nude nail polish for pale skintones. And the best part is the formula. This polish has all the advantages of a real gel polish but without a UV lamp or base coat needed! Combined with the Miracle Gel top coat it stays on like a dream. No more chipped nail polish! It is also easily removed using your regular nail polish remover!

The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish in 120 Bare Dare retails for $9.99
