Zoya Nail Polish is the world’s leading brand of nail polish. Known as the “Healthy New Color of Fashion” Zoya is always a step ahead of fashion trend with the longest wearing natural nail formula. From creams, mattes, satins, metallic and texture finishes there are over 300 shades to choose from.

I’m trying to save some money these days so I won’t participate in this one. It looks very tempting since I’m starting to like Zoya polishes more and more. With the exchange rate, I’d be paying about $31 CAD for 4 bottles of polish.

Zoya Blaze Swatch & Review

I bought this shade way back earlier in the year when Zoya was having a sale (pay for shipping and receive 3 bottles for free) and when the CAD/USD exchange rate wasn’t this bad.

I had been eyeing for this shade for a long time, especially after I tried Zoya Dream and witnessed how amazing it is under the sun.

Zoya Blaze is a red/berry colour with scattered holo effect. It looks beautiful under daylight.

Application is the same as great (no streakiness and easy to apply) as long as you are used to Zoya’s brush. I mentioned before that their brushes are not the best for me. However, I think I’m more used to it now.

It lasted 7 days with minor tip wear

OPI Dutch Tulips Nail Polish Review & Swatch

I apologize for the lack of updates on my blog. I have been quite busy with my personal life these days and my nails were peelings so I was taking a break and letting my nails breath.

I got this bottle of OPI Dutch Tulips a month ago. It was on clearance at my local London Drugs for CAD $5.99. I believe this was part of OPI’s permanent line. However, since it is on clearance, I’m not sure if that means it will be discontinued.

The moment I saw the bottle I knew this is gonna be the perfect bright spring/summer colour. The photo doesn’t really do justice to the colour. I would describe the colour as in between hot pink and fuchsia.

The application is wonderful to work with. No bubbling or streakiness at all. I used 2 coats in my photo but this can be a one coater.

Overall: 5/5 – one of my favourite colours from OPI for sure!

Marcelle Hydra-C 24H + SPF 15 Moisturizing Cream Review

A few months ago, my Aveeno daily moisturizer ran out. I was on the hunt for a new moisturizer with SPF. This Marcelle one appealled to me because I am looking for a moisturizer + SPF with no added scent.

Marcelle is a Canadian cosmetic brand that focuses on people with sensitive skin. All of their products (the ones I have tried) have no fragrance.

Upon applying the moisturizer, I like the smooth feeling it gives to my skin. However, it doesn’t last long. Within 30 minutes, I can feel the SPF “peeling” off my face. This is my main issue with this product. I would wonder how this fares under hot, sweaty weather.

Marcelle Hydra-C 24 H + SPF 15 Moisturizing Cream (50ml) set me back CAD $23.95. The 50ml jar lasts me more than 3 months.

Overall: It is an okay product. I doubt I would buy it again because of the “peeling” off effect. 3/5 stars

Superstore – Cosmetics Sale

Yesterday I happen to pass by superstore and decided to check out their beauty sections. Lots of items are on sale. Revlon lipsticks were CAD$3.97 each. Revlon lip butters were also CAD$3.97. I think it’s the first time I see lip butters on sale. Usually they are priced around $10-$12.

I would have grabbed some Maybelline matte lipsticks if there were seals on them. But it looks like someone tried them.

I also got a L’oreal Eyeliner in Pure Purple for $CAD7.99.

That’s all for now. Cheers!
