This polish is a bright purple creme with a slight shimmer. When it dries, it is supposed to have a grape scent.

This polish was fairly thin and  3  coats are needed to reach opacity (I only did 2 coats for the photo). When it dries, it is supposed to have a scent and I found the scent to be rather generic. It smelled similar to other cheap scented nail polishes I  used when I was a teenager. It didn’t even smell like grape which was a disappointment. However, the color of this polish is amazing!

One drawback to this polish is that it seems to like to chip and wear off the tips, even with a top coat (I used Seche Vite Fast-Drying Top Coat).

Overall, I love the color of this polish but the longevity and scent didn’t meet my expectations for the price.

Price: $6.50 (Walgreens)

Orange lips are in for Spring and I had to get on the bandwagon! This lipstick is a semi-opaque, matte orange. It applied smoothly and effortlessly. I was a little disappointed with the wear (I got 3 hours w/lip liner) and it faded unevenly. This lipstick was also a bit drying. One pro of this lipstick is that did not have much of a scent.

Overall, I don’t really care for this lipstick. I like the color of this lipstick, and that’s where my love for this lipstick ends.

Price: $7.99 (www.walgreens.com)
