Review: NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno

Hey everyone!
I hope you all are having a wonderful day!  I thought I would do a review for you guys today while I wait for a video to download so I can edit it.  So the product I am going to review for toy guys today is the NARS Nail Polish in Disco Inferno, I actually mention this in my December favorites video which should be posted soon.

I hauled this nail polish in my Sephora Haul + Announcements video.  This particular shade was on sale for $5, the NARS nail polishes are about $19.  Unfortunately this shade is no longer available but I thought I would still review it because it might give you some in site on how the NARS nail polish formula is.

Disco Inferno is a beautiful silver green shade, it has very small pieces of glitter but they are very tiny and not very chunky or to noticeable.  It is kind of a metallic, reflective shade (if that made any sense).

The packaging is very nice and sleek, it's not to bulky and would be easy to store.

As far as the color, it is opaque with three coats and the formula is very nice.  I did use a base and top coat with this(just the base and top coat from OPI) but it lasted really nicely.  It probably didn't start chipping until four days of wearing it, which is really good because I am always chipping my nail polish.

Overall I really like this nail polish!  I like the formula and the color and I am really tempted to get another NARS nail polish but I just can't justify spending $20 on a nail polish.  Maybe I'll pick another one up the next time they are on sale.

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Too Cool

Hey everyone!
Sorry it's been so long since I last did a post, I have been busy with school and working on my YouTube channel. 

So today I'm doing a review on a product that is somewhat new but I'm sure you all have heard of it.  It is the Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue, they are the newest baby lips that Maybelline has come out with.  I own two of them, one in the clear shade, Too Cool, and another in a tinted berry shade, Berry Soft, but today I am going to be reviewing the clear one.

Now the new Dr. Rescue baby lips are medicated lip balms, which couldn't be more perfect for the winter time, and they come in six shades.  Five of those shades are tinted and the only one that is clear is Too Cool.  This retails for around $3.49, which is a bit more pricey than the other baby lips that sell for around $2.99.

The packaging on these are different from the other baby lips Maybelline has put out.  Though they are similar to the Baby Lips Electro, the packaging is all white and the color of the letters vary on what shade you have.  For instance the clear shade has light blue letters while the Berry Soft shade has berry colored letters.  Other than that, the packaging is the same as the others.

These claim to have medicated care and twelve hour hydration.  On the Maybelline website it says, "Medicated care soothes sore lips and combats dryness."  It also claims that in one minute lips feel soothed, in one day lips look more smooth, and that in one week lips are renewed.

Now those are some pretty strong claims to make, but I have to say I am really impressed with this lip balm.  I am definitely a lip balm junkie and I honestly think that you can never have enough lip balm.  I defiantly recommend this lip balm, it is very soothing on the lips which is perfect for the winter and I'm not sure if it actually meets every single one of the claims but I definitely think that it is a good lip balm.  This helps to hydrate my chapped lips and my lips do look and feel smoother after using this.

Overall, I really like this lip balm and I highly recommend it.  I actually am almost finished with my first one and I already have a backup of it waiting to be used.

I plan on picking up more shades of the Dr. Rescue Baby lips, so be on the look out for a new post on that.  If you have tried this product, please leave a comment down below letting me know what you think of it.  Also let me know what types of posts you want to see in the future.  I hope you all are having a great Christmas!
