Highlight Metallic Matte Lipstick; Desert Mirage & Rare Nebbiolo

Morning beauties!  I have makeup to share today, yay!  I know you are all on the quest for the perfect lippie, just like I always am.  I've found some gems along the way and some that aren't so great.  I am thrilled to share Highlight Cosmetics with you today.  It's a makeup brand, specializing in liquid lipsticks made from natural ingredients such as turmeric, green tea and sea kelp (just to name a few).   Highlight Cosmetics is made in the USA, and is gluten, parade and cruelty free.  How cool is all that?  And these gorgeous lipsticks really pay off in color and wear time.  There are 10 shades to choose from, both plain matte and metallic matte.  They are $25 each.  Okie dokie, shall we jump in to the post?  Let's go!

Stella Chroma Premiere Collection

Good morning lovelies!  I feel like it's been a while!  I had quite a bit going on, preparing for the last day of school, Promotion, a short vacation, a half marathon, packing my oldest for an international soccer camp...So much to do, so little time.  So I'm once again playing catch-up.  Let's start with some exciting news.  You've probably heard that Paint Box Polish is no more, but it's not gone.  Stella Chroma will be launching on 6/29 and it's an absolutely gorgeous transformation.  The branding and bottles are so classy, with a boutique feel.  I'm excited to be sharing the Premiere Collection with you now!  
A big change happening is that Stella Chroma will be a charity brand!  Pam is a Nurse Practitioner and has nieces that are very interested in science.  Stella Chroma will be promoting STEM careers by partnering with different organizations each quarter.  The initial quarter will be donating a portion of sales to IGNITE (Inspiring Girls Now In Technology) which is a non-profit that introduces girls in grades 6-12 to technology and engineering careers.  Check out their website for more info!  
BUT WAIT there's more!  There's also a giveaway for an uber gorgeous Coach holo wristlet!  Making a purchase in the first week will qualify as an entry.  You can get more entires by sending friends to Stella Chroma to shop and having them enter your name in the notes!  *Wristlet will be mailed to the winner*  Ok, now that all those details have been divulged let's jump in and look at polish!

Born Pretty Store Magnet Pen

Happy Fri-YAY!  Do you have plans for the weekend?  I have none.  NONE!  No soccer tournaments, no baseball games, no parties, nothing.  I can sit at home in my pjs all weekend long should I chose to.  But I don't.  I like to go out and will likely hit up the beach or the pool.  I also like this post a lot because it made me bust out one of my old magnetic polishes to play with it again!  Remember how those were all the rage in like 2013?  Well let's bring them back!  I had a good time trying to remember the little tricks to get the magnet and polish to work together.  This Magnet Pen was so much easier to use than the magnets that were available to us a few years back.  You can purchase this product HERE for $2.09 or you can click the link below and browse other magnetic polish items in the Born Pretty shop.  Save 10% off your entire order using my code JTOW10.

ellagee I'm Peach

Evening all!  Hanging out with my fan watching the Warriors (I am by no means a basketball fan so I'm not really paying attention) and taking a break from cleaning my house.  I am pretty beat actually, the cleaning and few errands I did today really wiped me out.  I am fighting a cold so I'm super blah.  But this polish is the absolute opposite of super blah.  It's pretty fan-flipping-tactic actually.  And it has me in the mood for the heat...BRING IT ON SUMMER!  Alrighty, so I'm Peach is available now for $12, $8 of which will be donated to the ACLU in your name! Let's jump in and check it out.

KBShimmer Holo-Manics Group Custom #25 - Holo Can You Go

Evening y'all!  I meant to share this post a few hours ago but hello, mom of boys.  I ended up in the ER instead of getting to type.  But the good news is no broken bones and I can share the post now!  Ok, now that that's behind us, let's check out the KBShimmer custom for the Holo-Maniacs group!  This is Holo Can You Go, it's custom #25 for the group.  You can purchase this straight from KBShimmer but the link is only shared in the Holo-Maniacs Facebook group.  I'd highly suggest you go join if you are a fan of all things holo.  Holo Can You Go is $9.25.  I know there are 90 bottles available right away and once those are gone the sale becomes a pre-order.  I'm not sure where they're at currently but you'll get your pretties no matter what.  Ok, so let's jump in and check out the polish!
