Julie G's nail polish review

Hey y'all! I wanted to do a quick review on this nail polish by Julie G on youtube because I absolutely love this color.  The  formula of this polish is simply awesome. You can get away with just one coat but two coats really just make the color so much better. The only downside to it is the brush is a little on the small side. The  finish is not a glossy finish so you will definitely need a top coat. Its kind of a semi-matte finish. All together I think this polish is amazing and she has a wide range of colors. It was only $3.99 and it is well worth the money. I will surely be picking up more colors from her line. These polishes can be found in your local Rite-Aid stores and online at jessesgirlcosmetics.com

Wet n wild's Ultimate brow kit REVIEW!

Now we all love a perfectly sculpted eyebrow. Some prefer a bold brow, while others prefer something a little more subtle. With this brow kit you can achieve both brow looks with the same brow kit. This kit retails for an amazing price of 3.99-4.99, depending on where you purchase it from.

This kit includes:

Angled brow brush

tweezers

compact slide out mirror
dark brown
medium brown
brow wax

(Click to enlarge the pictures!)
Wet n wild Ultimate brow kit: Ash brown


A closer look

My thoughts on each item!




Angled brow brush: I really like this brush a lot. The fact that the edge of it is so sharp and defined allows me to get a more precise brow look that I love so much.

Cons: The only downside to this brush is that it is really small so it may be difficult to control at times.



Tweezers: The tweezers are not my favorite, honestly. They are a nice thing to have in your makeup bag if you are out and you need to clean up your brows a bit.

Cons: The tweezers could be hard to control because they are a little hard to squeeze so you would have to use a bit more pressure.



Mirror: The fact that this kit has a mirror is the ultimate bonus for me. It really is convenient because if you are out and need to retouch your brows, everything you need is in one hand.

Con: The mirror does not stay out, it falls back into the slot when it is held up. 


Brow powders (medium and dark brown): These powders are really pigmented. They apply really smoothly to the skin and it stays on for quite a while. Another great thing about these powders is if you prefer a more natural daytime brow, you can mix the powders to get your desired look.

Cons: None


Wax: The wax is actually really great for keeping your brow hairs in place. If you have wild and unruly brows then this would work as a plus if you wanted to try this palette.

Cons: None

Overall thoughts on this kit!

Overall, I think this is an amazing kit to have. The price is amazing, the quality is good and the convenience is better. I bought mine from Rite Aid for 2.39, which was the final price after the 40% was deducted.
