Great Nail Polish Swatches and Free Nail Polish!

Monday, January 26th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Nail Polish, Photos | Comments Off

Recently, Meilily has become addicted to some really useful nail polish swatch sites with photos showing what various nail colors look like in real life.  Both sites have nice close-up photos and detailed product comparisons.  Checking out these swatch sites is an easy way to try before you buy!
- Scrangie
- The Polish Addict

Currently both sites feature the same special deal for a free bottle of Misa nail polish (through Misa Cosmetics) until the end of January.  (See the Scrangie free polish post and Polish Addict post for details.)

Meilily Product Pick: Cruelty-free Kabuki Brush by Stript

Saturday, January 24th, 2009 | Photos, Product Picks, Tools and Brushes | 2 Comments

Meilily Product Pick:  Stript Kabuki Brush

Meilily Product Pick: Stript Kabuki Brush

Meilily has found the most amazing makeup brush ever, and you’re gonna love it!

The Kabuki Brush #181 by Stript Makeup is hands down  the best kabuki brush ever!  Not only is this brush super soft and extremely dense, but it is also made of vegan synthetic bristles that are cruelty-free.  You can’t beat a makeup brush that works well and is also cruelty-free!
The taklon bristles on the Stript Kabuki Brush are even crimped, unlike most synthetic bristles out there, and apparently crimped synthetic bristles are more similar to natural hairs and can hold makeup better than straight synthetic bristles.  When I heard that the Stript Kabuki Brush was crimped, I was sold!

The Stript Kabuki Brush retails for $38, and is well worth it.  Kabuki brushes can be used to apply mineral makeup, blush, and more.  To find out more about Stript Makeup and to find beauty stores where Stript products are sold, check out their website, StriptMakeup.com. The Stript Kabuki Brush is currently available on Amazon through Beauty Collection, where I got mine.

Meilily says:  Love the Stript Kabuki Brush!

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase 2008

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase '08

I have never really been tempted by Estee Lauder skincare or cosmetics, but the current Nordstrom Estee Lauder gift with purchase offer really made me pay attention.  Also, a study, recently mentioned in Allure magazine, wherein Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum Concentrate was shown to help prevent UV damage caught my attention too.

So, in the name of scientific investigation I went to Nordstrom and picked up the current Estee Lauder gift with purchase. Read on for shopping strategies and product photos.  › Continue reading
