Nicole By OPI Diva Into The Pool

I’ve been feeling blue recently…no, not blue blue, but the colour blue.  I’ve been wearing blue and carrying blue handbags.  This is triggering some lyrics in my head, “True blue, baby I love you” by Madonna.  Anyway, I just wanted to show you my beautiful blue NOTD (nails of the day) courtesy of Nicole By OPI Diva Into The Pool.

If you haven’t come across Nicole By OPI, it is basically the sister brand to OPI which targets the younger female audience.  Well, you know, they say you’re only as old as you feel and I feel young!

It looks really good on my nails – check it out

Diva Into The Pool is a pretty shimmery aqua colour with tiny silver glittery pieces.   I was really happy with the quality of the nail polish.  Two coats of this achieved a beautiful finish.  And it remained chip-free for a few days.  I love it!

Do you have any recommendations for other nail polishes I should check out?

Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer

Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer – where have you been all my life???!!!  This Guerlain primer screams LUXE with its heavy glass bottle packaging.

Product Description

This gel formula is the first makeup base with pearls of light, it contains an exclusive, color-control base to camouflage blemishes and discoloration, and pearlescent extracts to capture and reflect light, blurring the appearance of fine lines without adding shine.

I pumped out a bit of the primer and the first thing I noticed was the smell.  It smells like “flowery soap” but not of the overpowering variety.    Very typical Guerlain smell.  The texture is soft and light and is easy to blend into skin.  I like the pearly shimmer in this product.  When I put this on my face, I loved how radiant my face looked.  I didn’t even think I needed foundation after that as it covered my blemishes and made my skin glow.

Guerlain Meteorites Perles Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer is definitely a classic must-have!

L’Oreal Paris Renewal Lash Serum

Sometimes I wish I had been blessed with long thick eyelashes…but alas, I have short stubby lashes.  I have many sets of false eyelashes, but I am a total klutz at sticking them on, so I don’t bother.  I was delighted when I found a miracle product for my short eyelashes –  L’Oreal Paris Renewal Lash Serum

Product Description

L’Oreal Paris Renewal Lash Serum is an intensive treatment designed to boost the lashes, providing complete lash coverage from root to tip. The serum also works to reduce lash loss during make-up removal and extend the length of time lashes grow before they fall out, leading to longer lashes.

The applicator is like a mascara wand without the bristles.  I like to apply this before mascara and sometimes, I just use it as a clear mascara.

My Opinions

  • I have noticed a big change in my lashes!!  They are thicker and glossier.
  • My previously non-existent lower lashes have grown longer.
  • As for the claims to reduce lash loss, I cannot comment on that because I haven’t noticed a difference.
  • I liked it so much that I bought another tube before I even finished my first tube!
  • Highly recommended 9.5 out of 10

In conclusion :  L’Oreal Paris Renewal Lash Serum is a definite must have for me!
