Deborah Lippmann Break 4 Love

Deborah Lippmann Break 4 Love is a gorgeous summery pink cream polish. It's one of those colors that screams summer days at the beach or the pool and such a cheery color it uplifts your mood.
I don't think there is anything too unique about this color but I'm really drawn to these type of shades for spring and summer. The application was really nice and it went opaque with two coats. The wear time is great and it last a full week without chipping but I always use a top coat (I use the Butter London one).

Overall, gorgeous color for spring and summer and a must have summer staple for me.

Lorac Pro Palette 2 Swatches

Lorac just released the Pro Palette 2 which is a collection of cooler toned eyeshadows. Just like the Lorac Pro Palette one, the top row contains 8 matte eyeshadows while the bottom contains 8 shimmery shades.
Onto the swatches:

1. Colors from right to left, Buff, LT Brown, Cool Gray and Nectar. 
2. Plum, Navy, Charcoal and Black

3. Snow, Beige, Rose, Mocha and Chrome.

 4. Silver, Jade and Cocoa.

I'm immediately drawn to the shimmer shades as they're so gorgeous but the matte shades are some of the most buttery mattes in the market. I haven't had a chance to use the palette but from swatching the shades, they all swatch beautifully. They're very pigmented, smooth to the touch and gorgeous shades. There is not a dud in this palette. I highly recommend it and I can't wait to use it tomorrow.

Josie Maran Beautiful Nudes Eyeshadow swatches

I find gold and bronze eyeshadows to look amazing during summer especially with a tan. Josie Maran beautiful nudes is the perfect summer quad. With two golden shades (one shimmery and one satin) a beautiful rose gold,  a shimmery chocolate brown and dark deep brown meant to be used as eyeliner, this is going to be my go to eyeshadow quad this season. 
Swatches in inside light:

 Swatches in direct sunlight. Absolutely love the finely milled shimmer of these shades.

These shades are infused with Argan oil and a blend of floral and fruit extract which makes these very nutrient rich so they provide skin benefits to your eyelids as well as look gorgeous. I can't wait to use them and will provide further review on how the apply/last on the lids.

Essie Neo Whimiscal

I absolutely love light lavender and lilac nail shades for spring and summer and Essie Neo Whimsical is such a beautiful light lavender that compliments my skin tone and looks very fresh and feminine. 

One of my favorite things about this shade is that it's light in color so it doesn't appear too bold and opaque which is nice sometimes because some lilac/lavender shades can be quite unnatural. Essie managed to make this color a beautiful spring/summer shade without so much being in your face and loud. The application is nice. It takes about two coats and it wears nicely on the nails for a week. This color is a must have for spring and summer.

Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Maine

One of the most beautiful places we visited in Maine was Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park which is within the island. We drove up the Cadillac Mountain and took some gorgeous pictures along the way.  

We had an amazing time and although I've never camped, I would totally love to camp here. There were several people running up the mountain which I would love to do. There are also several beautiful beaches to go relax and read a book. It was amazing and I can't wait to visit it again.

Jin Soon Dolly Pink Swatch

Jin Soon Dolly Pink nail polish ...what a dream of a color. I've only just discovered Jin Soon polishes and have already purchased four colors with Dolly Pink being my latest addition. Dolly Pink is a cream pink color but with a bit of a twist. I say that because I can often classify a pink as either cool or warm toned. This however sits somewhere in between which means it would work for so many different skin tones.

The color is lovely and perfect for spring and summer. However, beware of the application. The application of this wasn't the same as the other Jin Soon polishes. It is very very streaky and it requires a white base to make the color pop but I find that to be the case for many pinks like OPI mod about you. I do not mind the extra maintenance in application because I really enjoy the color. Overall, highly recommend and I'm sure I'll wear Dolly Pink quite a bit this summer.
