Simple & Chic NOTW

Hello lovelies, hope you all have an awesome weekend ahead and enjoy what's left of summer!!

I wanted to start doing NOTW again. I honestly haven't done my nails in a long time. I guess I gave my nails some breathing time. Today, I wanted something simple but stylish all at the same time. It's very easy to do, nothing rocket science. I wanted to start creating some short nail designs because my nails for the most part are always short, so for all you girlies out there with short nails enjoy my NOTW every friday!!

What you need to create this simple design is just three nail polishes, in any colors you like and a nail art brush or tooth pic or anything at home you can use to create dots and a top coat and that's pretty much it. Both Colors I used were from Essie in Fiesta and Eternal Optimist, a clear nail polish from Orly and a black nail art design polish.

Hope you enjoy :-)
Leslie xoxo

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Products Review

Where did my week go! Its Thursday already, time is flying by so quickly next thing I know it’s my birthday and then Christmas lol… Well we have to take each day and do as much as we can that’s my thought. Anyhow, lets chat about Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss and Lip Tar-Matte. It is funny when I first heard of this makeup line some time ago I thought the name was so hilarious, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics aka OCC but I love the name. I love it because I am obsessed with cosmetics too and their cosmetics are awesome and so multitasking which is awesome.

I got a set of OCC products in my goodie bag at the Chic Studios five year anniversary event, where I got two Stained Glosses, a lip brush, two Cosmetic Colour Pencils, and one Crème Colour Concentrate. Today, I will only be talking about the Stained Glosses in the colors Hedonist and Aurora. Since I fell in love with the stained glosses I had to try at least one Matte color so I went to Sephora and bought Lydia for $18.

I have to be honest I had never used them before because they looked so bold and bright so it sort of didn’t appeal me too much. But that changed when I got this set and tried them on. Seriously I am obsessed because the color you see in the tube does change a bit once applied. They are not thick at all. They are very creamy and super pigmented a little goes a long way, seriously I think a tube will last you forever. They come with a little brush you can use to apply it. These stained glosses and matte lip tar are very buildable so you can build it up to the color you want, giving you a beautiful color that lasts all day or until you take it off which is amazing.

They have a minty smell but don’t taste minty. The smell does fade away after a while, would suggest you try them out and smell them to see if you’ll be ok with it. They don’t stay glossy, they dry up matte at least with me it does. So I carry a lip balm to apply over but I don’t find these dry my lips at all which is a huge plus for me. I use it as is with no primer or lip liners and I have no issues with it. Other than the fact that you have to be super careful when taking the product out of the tube so there won’t be a mess. I totally love these stained glosses and the matte lip tars are awesome and do recommend them.

Have you tried OCC Cosmetics which ones? What where your thoughts?
