I am always on the go, so when it comes to my painting my nails, a fast drying topcoat is an absolute must. I recently picked up Revlon Nail Care Quick Dry Polish, and I am very pleased with this product! I love a great drugstore find. I'll go so far as to say that it may be the best quick dry formula that I've ever used. The finish is really shiny, and it holds its shine quite nicely over a several day span. I also like that the formula isn't too thick. I've started carrying it around with me in my purse. Love it! I believe I will be sticking with this product. By the way, wearing it here with Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Blue Bombshell. Kind of loving cobalt right now : )

For me, there is no lipstick shade as bold and in command as red. I love a great red. It's strong, confident, and super feminine. I'm absolutely adoring my newest one, Burnout, by Kismet Cosmetics. This lipstick is part of Kismet's Velvet Collection, which we introduced earlier this week (click here to see our post on Kismet's gorgeous orchid lipstick). Because of the blue undertones, this semi-matte shade works on everyone. I am so pleased with this formula's staying power and grip. It feels really nice on, too. All in all, Burnout looks classic and is a beauty must. It absolutely adds a little drama to whatever your wearing. I felt like it took this raisin Elizabeth and James cape dress to another level. : )
There are four beautiful shades in the Velvet Collection. Each lipstick is $16 a piece or $60 for all four. Can't wait to show you the nude and coral shades! Stay tuned for those : ) xx

If you're looking to inject a little color into your spring makeup palette this spring, make some room for orchid. Lindsey and I adore this vivid shade, which is a key color for spring and summer. Orchid Haze, a stunning new lip shade by Kismet Cosmetics is a great way to get in on the trend. Lindsey and I are obsessed with this lipstick - you're going to want to add this to your list of spring beauty musts. Orchid is striking and very feminine and feels a bit more exciting than pink. At $16, this lip color is a simple and affordable way update your look. We both tried it on and can attest that it looks amazing on both fair and tan skin. Love it!! We found the pigmented formula to be very long lasting, and it feels wonderful on - moisturizing but not too creamy. Definitely a solid formula. It grips to the lips very nicely and stays put. No lip liner needed. You can also control the intensity of the hue depending on how much pressure you apply when putting it on. So gorgeous.
We can't talk about this lipstick without mentioning Kismet's instant bronzer, which is a mega fave of ours. Swear it makes our legs look more toned. Check out our post here on the bronzing lotion.
