Product reviews and Milani 3D hologram polish review!

Well I have collected a few new products over the past few weeks that I would love to share with you! All of them have to do with beauty, so let's get started!!

Let me start off with a fantastic new body moisturizer that I simply can't get enough of. I found it in my local Walgreens while shopping in the beauty area. It was a new product I've never seen in store before. They had a few more scents like coconut cream and strawberry milkshake, but I love raspberry & blackberry caught my eye. This scent is amazing, if you love the fresh smell of berries, then you're going to fall in love with this line like I have!
 The products are under $10.00 from what I saw, and they have hand moisturizer, body wash and even lip gloss! I've researched the company, they're in the UK and is in select drugstore and retail stores. They have a wonderful facebook page and a very helpful site of their own
If you see their products give them a try! 

So Walgreens had a sidekick display of the Neon Sinful Colors the other day with nine new stripping polishes including some new Neon colors. Well my honey gave me the money to get all nine of them! I'm so excited to bring them home, and I am totally loving the whole neon look this season! I got to pick these up with the $0.99 sale and picked them all up for $0.99 each!
 The polish names from left to right are: 
A Slice To Go
Anxious Azure
Me First
Sour Grapes
Orange Alert
Worn Before
Rose In Your Nose
Bad Chick
Morning Breath

Now I tried this product or something like it a long time ago. Now I didn't have much luck with it, but I wanted to give it one more go. Well, I figured it was my fault from my first use because I was holding the nail enamel dryer to close to my fingers. Well this time around I did 1-2 sprays on each nail and held the spray about 4 inches away from my nails (like it tells you!) Well I used it last week on crackle polish and in a few mins they were dry (I even did dishes!)  So if you do a lot of nail art like me, this will be your best friend!

Now, here is something I've been using for the past month. I'm totally in love with Garnier BB cream! I saw it in one of my magazines I get, and I even asked my CVS beauty adviser about it. She said she had yet to try it, but heard nothing but good things about it. 
Well, with a few coupons and it being on sale I got a bottle (container) of it for about $7.00. Now I've heard some people have broken out from the cream, so I was worried I would too.

So I opened it, and put some on my fingers to mix and put on. The cream has a great scent, like a lot of the Garnier products. It's rich and creamy, and if you didn't know it is a tinted moisturizer with mineral powder in it. It gives me great even coverage. I now use this instead of mixing moisturizer, concealer and cover-up. Now I just use the BB Cream and dot concealer on my problem spots, and then set it with powder.

 So if you want to give it a try I say go for it! I love this product, and you can find a lot of coupons or even seeing them item on sale. Have you tried it yet? If so, what do you think of it?

Finally one more nail polish review! Now I picked up the Milani 3D Hologram nail polish line a few weeks back when it was buy 1, get 1 half off. Last night I finally tried the polish out! I was in love with the swatches I saw online, and I am totally in love with them in person!

I did a mix of green and blue. They shimmer in the light, and have a really unique reflective glitter in them that make them look like there is a bit of holographic effect in them. The polish went on smoothly and wasn't bumpy like some glitter polishes.

I did three coats each, with a bottom and top coat. They seemed to dry fast and really didn't need the top coat for a shine, just added it for protection. I hope to pick up more holographic polishes soon in more colors by different polish companies.  
Have you tried any hologram polish? Any line suggestions? Leave a comment below! Thanks for reading, I hope to update more soon!
