Beauty Crown Awards- Week 3

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 1 - Personal Care Products - Dec 2 - Dec 8, 2013
Week 2 - Facial Products - Dec 9 - Dec 15, 2013
Week 3 - Lip & Nail Products - Dec 16 - Dec 22, 2013
Week 4 - Eye & Misc Products - Dec 23 - Dec 29, 2013
Week 5 - Facial Care Products & Tools - Dec 30 - Jan 4, 2014

Week 3 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Lip & Nail Products. Below are my Week 3 selections:

Lipliner- Nyx and MAC
Now this week was very hard to choose but I love both of these lipliners. They are pretty similar to me besides the huge price difference. They are both really great lipliners to own.

Lipstick- NYX Matte and MAC
The only lipsticks I have owned for a while are MAC. I just love the colors and how they don't dry out your lips and stay on for a good portion of the day. Then I started to discover other lipsticks and fell in love with NYX Matte Lipsticks. I just love the way they look and how they basically stay on your lips for a while and also doesn't dry your lips out. I had way too many favorites but when with my top two!

Gloss- Benefit Cosmetics SugarBomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
I received this in my Birchbox a few months ago and just fell in love with this. I have never felt a lipgloss so plush and soft before. I love the neutral pink tone and how it just feels on my lips, lol!

Tinted Lip Balm- Cover Girl Smoochies Lip Balm
This is my go to lip balm when I don't feel like wearing lipstick or gloss. It so moisturizing and I love the hint of color. The smell reminds of the Lip Smackers Lip Balm that I used to wear when I was younger. This is a really great product to own!

Lip Treatment- DIY Lip Scrub and Toothbrush
I basically use a DIY Lip Scrub to exfoliate my lips and keep them nice and soft or I will use a toothbrush to exfoliate. I have tried so many DIY Lip Scrubs, I haven't found a favorite yet but will let you guys know when I do.

Polish- OPI
This is hands down my favorite nail polish!! I just love this polish so much. The formula is great and the polish stays last on your nails for a while.

Basecoat- OPI Nail Envy
I love this as a basecoat. My nails don't stain from the polish and it also helps with nail growth. I also wear this alone when I'm not wearing any polish.

Topcoat- Out The Door
I have searched high and low for a top coat that helps polish stay on my natural nails for more than a day. I know it can be hard but so far, I really like this top coat. It gives a nails a great shine and my polish stays on for more than a day which I'm happy with.

Treatment- Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage Cream
I'll admit I've been pretty bad with taking care of my cuticles. I haven't really used anything in a while but with Winter here I needed to find something. I picked this up at Target and so far I like it. It smells so good and does the job. My cuticles look good and don't feel rough at all.


  1. Like the glass marble element you used for the pictures. I too like the NYX matte lipsticks, some really great colours they offer. I like the colour of that Opi polish. I still have yet to try the CG smoothies. Thanks for sharing:)

    1. Thanks Betti, I wanted to do something different with my pictures this time. There are too many shades to choose from with NYX,lol. That OPI color is Coney Island Cotton Candy, one of my favorite colors by them. You should try the Cover Girl Smoochies, it's great.

  2. Oooh, great picks!! Definitely share a lip scrub with us when you find one! Thanks for sharing! <3

    1. Thanks Lilly, I sure will when I find one!

  3. Hi Andrea! These are all great picks! I totally agree with you on the MAC and NYX picks! MAC lipsticks are awesome! I have one NYX lippie which is a matte cream. Benefit's Sugarbomb really is the bomb! I enjoyed reading your post! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! xx

    1. Hi Liz, thank you!! I definately agree, Mac has some great lipsticks and so does NYX! I have one of those Matte lippies by NYX, I think they are going to launch more colors next year! Thank you for stopping by!

  4. I need to try those NYX Matte lipsticks, I always get so overwhelmed when I get to the NYX shelf and want to buy them all! I agree with that Sugarbomb. Great winners this week Andrea, thanks for sharing it with us!

    1. You really should Jackie, they are so great! I get overwhelmed too trying to decide what to get. Thanks for stopping by!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
