Sinful Colors Mod In Bloom - 5 NEW Pastels For Spring!

Even though it is far from Spring in most of the US (I've never disliked that groundhog more than I do now), I am jumping right in to Spring collections and pastels!

According to Nouveau Cheap (THE source for drug store releases, such a good site), the Mod In Bloom collection features all new polishes - click HERE for her post - but there are a few that are pretty close to last year's Spring collection called Sugar Rush (which Sam from A Girl Obsessed guest blogged for me last year, click HERE for that recap).

I chose 5 colors from the Spring Mods.  On Wednesday, I am going to show you a couple comparisons between last year's colors and the "all new" colors from this year.  I will tell you now, there are a couple ALMOST dupes - interesting, right?

Here are the colors I picked up -

Let's go in order from the pic.  First up is Violet's Are Blue.  Great color with pretty shimmer.  This is two coats, no topcoat.  Perfectly opaque, no issues at all:

Mad About Hue is a bright purple. It's a nice color, fine formula, but pretty sure I have quite a few similar shades.

This is Baby Blues, a sweet polish with a perfect formula.

Next, let's check out my bottle WITH NO LABEL.  WHY didn't I look? I have no idea, ugh.  This is Cream Soda, two coats, no topcoat.  It is a beautiful peach with a pinky base.

Lastly, this is Nice Stems.  Last year's collex didn't have a seafoam, so I immediately picked up this shade.  Very pretty, similar formula, two coats, no issues. I obviously swatched this baby before I broke all my nails. *sad face*

Pretty sweet, right? I am SO ready for Spring!! Hopefully these will be popping up at more locations, but I found these about two weeks ago at a Rite Aid.

Thanks for stopping by,

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
