Modern Family is one of my favourite TV Shows. Have you seen it? It’s awesome. So when I heard about the new Nicole by OPI collection I was excited!
This 24 shade collection features “shades that capture the show’s colorful personalities from a classic taupe named after patriarch Jay, to a sparkly pink hue fit for little Lilly!”
My favourite shades are My Jay or the Highway and Luke of the Draw! Check them all out below. Follow Nicole by OPI on Twitter at @NicoleByOPI or Facebook
I gave the Rocket Volum’Express mascara to my sister, the Mascara Queen. (seriously.) She liked it!
Maybellinee’s newest formula is a thin buildable volume mascara so that you can layer up according to your preferences. The wand had small bristles so it avoided clumping. It lasts all day and was hard to smudge (for those of you that rub your eyes). It is a true black and it’s in stores now!
Michelle gives this 4 wands out of 5.
I have never gotten as many compliments on my nails as I did the day that I rocked the “oh my gold” sleek sticks. Essie’s new nail stickers are available in an array of fun patterns. I generally suck at putting nail stickers on my nails, but these make it worth the fight. They aren’t hard to put on at all, and some are translucent. If you have wide nail beds, you can cut up the extra stickers to fill in the gaps.
I wore the above nail stickers and it was like magic. On my infamously silent commute, a lady asked me how I did that to my nails. She loved them and couldn’t stop staring. Friends would stop mid speech upon noticing my nails and enthusiastically asked me how I did them. Many didn’t believe it was a sticker. This too could happen to you with the awesome Sleek Sticks by Essie! Check out the styles below. I’m giving away sneek-e and croc n’chic. Enter to win below!

Ahh! The MAC Archie Comic collection is finally here! As a kid I eagerly ready the Betty & Veronica double digest. I love that the duo (trio?) now have their own collection. The Archie’s Girls collection hits stores on Feb. 7th.
This special collection comes in two contrasting colour collections. Peaches and cream Betty has pink tones and pearly colours. Dynamic Veronica features dark reds and purples. The collection features eye shadow, lipgloss, lip stick, eye liner, nail polish and more. Each item is in exclusively designed packaging featuring the girls.
These items look amazing in person. I got to try out a couple and love the Ronnie Red lipstick.
They also have an awesome collection of accessories. I want the heart shaped mirror!
The collection launches today, go check it out! If you spend over $75 you get a cute button from the collection.
Maybelline has some glossy new shades that go on sheer. During Fashion Week at Rachel Sin, this is what the models wore down the runway! I was excited to give it a try. This lipstick goes on like a gloss. Maybelline used a gel based formula for a lighter feel and translucent look.
I tried Who Wore It Red-er. It went on smooth and glossy, which was great. This colour is a soft strawberry pink tone, and wasn’t as red as I expected. The colour lasted long and I can see it being a great shade for spring! With 20 shades to choose from, it’s easy to find your perfect match. Check them out!
The new OPI Skyfall holiday collection has some gorgeous colours! This set celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Bond 007 and the movie release of Skyfall starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem. The Skyfall Collection features 12 dangerously dazzling new shades for the holidays. I love them! The photos don’t do them justice!
My absolute favourite shade is “The World is Not Enough” It’s a bit hard to see, but it’s a shimmery, glittery purple gray.
A close second would be this bright, shimmery red that is perfect for the holidays. The Spy Who Loved Me is “a red as romantic as the secret agent inside you.”
Check out the entire collection below!
OPI has generously provided me with a mini collection to give away to one lucky reader! The contest ends on Friday. November 9th. To enter, you have to Like us on my (brand new) Facebook page! Good luck!

I was invited to go backstage with MAC Cosmetics and Aveda during the Collections! Wow, is it ever busy back there. I spent some time watching a M∙A∙C makeup artist get a model ready for the Label show and explain the vision for the show. The model was prepped to have glowing, natural “California girl” skin. This was achieved by using MAC Care Blends Essential Oils and MAC Taupe Shape Powder Blush.
My favourite part of the look was the bright pop of colour that was added at the end. Each model got a bright, almost neon orange on the lips or eyes.
Aveda was backstage styling hair. The styles that they were creating were sleek rope braids.
Tips Nail Bar were also on hand to give the girls stick on half glitter manicures. They looked great!
Going backstage was lots of fun, thanks MAC & Aveda! I’ll be going backstage during Fashion week too.Can’t wait!
