Nail Polish Find - Formula X #ColorCurators Ashley Graham Edition



Formula X has a new #ColorCurators Nail Collection!

This time it's with the gorgeous model, Ashley Graham.  Ashley inspires others with the power of body positivity at any size.  Her nail collection is all about the beauty of self-acceptance from the shades - to the shade names themselves.  

The three summer-ready shades for manicures and pedicures are a vibrant magenta,  #beautybeyondsize (pictured, above), a pretty peachy coral 36DDD and a bright pink-red shade, Sexy As Hell (shown, below left).



I've written about Formula X nail products before and they really are some of the best that you can buy right now.   Their Cupcakes and Cashmere #Colorcurators collection was also a big favorite of mine.


All three shades have the smooth, superior formula which is easy to apply, with no clumping or streaking. They are long wearing and can go for at least 5 days with no chipping.  Tip:  If you're looking for an alternative to a traditional long wearing gel manicure, or just want to give your nails a break from them, Formula X polishes are the next best thing!

I loved using #beautybeyondsize for both manicures and pedicures.  It's such a flattering berry pink shade that will of course look great with a tan!

When you're looking for a lighter shade that still has some punch to it for summer, 36DDD is a flattering peachy coral with no shimmer, and lots of shine.





If you want a break from a traditional red for summer, Formula X #ColorCurators: Ashley Graham Edition - Nail Polish Sexy As Hell is the perfect choice. 

It's a red, but one with a lot of pink, so it will also look great on those toes, and it's also good for those of you who might now always be able to find the right red for your skin tone.

Get all three while they last! - RLB

If you can only get 1 item from the collection, I would recommend the Champagne Collection Face Palette with this you're get 5 different highlighter shades which are pigmented and creamy smooth like butter.  Then there's a adaptable blush which is buildable and gives a beautiful pop of color to the skin with fine shimmer.


I love that you can mix and match all the colors in the palette or even combine the highlighters for different looks.


The Eye Palette has five Champagne Pop-inspired shades.  They are neutral, work with all skin tones and are flattering. They provide a beautiful sheen and shimmer.  There are matte and lustre finish shades in the palette which allow you to create multiple looks.



The Eye Shadow Palette Contains:

- 5 x 0.06 oz Eye Shades in Chardonnay (sheer gold with flashes of pink and soft yellow), Champagne Toast (reflective peach with a dash of cinnamon), Cordial (matte rose with warm undertones), Cognac (flattering matte coffee), Bordeaux (rich matte wine with chocolate undertones) 






If you're not looking for eye shadows or blushes, try a highlighter, which is what BECCA is most known for.

Shimmering Skin Perfector Champagne Pop, pressed powder which is one of BECCA's most famous highlighters, will give you the most natural type of glowing finish the skin. 


The Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Creme allows you to add glow to specific parts of your face, like the cheekbones.  The Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid version is one of the most versatile products, which gives a more soft focus healthy glow to skin, and can be applied to face or body, as well as mixed with foundation.  

If you love to glow, you simply must dive into this limited edition BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection while it's still available! - RLB

Drugstore Buy of the Week - Garnier SkinActive Clean + Purifying Oil Free Cleansing Towelettes


I've got a new favorite wipe for all my oily and combo girls- and for general summer skincare.

Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes are the perfect cleansing wipe.  They cleanse skin without any oil and remove makeup, all without stripping skin or irritating it further.

The wipes contain charcoal, which cleanse pores (very good for the nose/t zone area!), as well as soften skin.

The texture of the Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes is slightly different to what you might be used to - it's more on the dry side.  But they pulled all the dirt and oil right out of my skin instantly.  They also have a very light, fresh scent which I loved.
I used these on warmer, humid days when my combination skin turns more oily and breakout prone.

By the way, Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes will also work on drier, sensitive skin as they soften and hydrate without added oil.  I didn't feel any residue or film after cleansing.  My skin just felt clean and fresh. The finish is matte, which was perfect for makeup application. The Cleansing Towelettes even removed waterproof and long wear makeup with ease.  Note: If you're skin is very sensitive, you may want to remove eye makeup with a separate remover first



Make sure you stock up on these to have on hand at home, the office, gym, etc.These also make a great cleanser if you're rushing early in the morning and don't have time for cleansing with water. - RLB
