Essie's French Affair Nail Polish Review!

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the Essie Nail Lacquer in the shades French Affair, Sand Tropez, and Nice is Nice from their French Affair Collection!

From Left to Right:
~Nice is Nice
~Sand Tropez
~French Affair

Here is a bit of information about the product. Essie is the ultimate color authority offering a line of superior nail polishes. The fashion-forward shades with an exclusive award winning formula are always classic, chic, and elegant. Essie polish provides flawless coverage along with outstanding durability, a chip-resistant formula and whimsical names in the most up-to-the-minute colors. All Essie nail polishes are DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free.

Here are some helpful tips:

1. Apply a thin layer of one of Essie’s base coats that fits your nail care needs.
2. Apply 2 coats of your favorite Essie nail polish.
3. Apply a thin layer of one of Essie’s top coats to fit your lifestyle.

Essie, oh how you tease me with your promenade of nail polishes. French Affair is a formal affair of the heart; for you’ve stolen mine with your divine pink lavender color. Nice is so nice, you named it twice; how witty of you for such a beautiful lavender hue. What a surprise when I found Sand Tropez; I didn’t know I was looking until you showed me the way, with its sandy beige shade now I can’t stay away.

I love Essie’s creamy formula; it applies easily and is opaque in just two coats. The distinctive small, light weight bottle makes it great for traveling. The thin, precise applicator brush gives me perfect results with each application. C’est magnifique!

This product retails for $8.00!

~Gorgeous, creamy color
~Easy to apply
~Two coats gives complete coverage
~Small, thin applicator brush


Overall, I rate this product at 5 out of 5 sugarcubes! Thanks to Essie’s beautiful palette of nail couleurs from their spring collection, the French Riviera is just a brush stroke away!

Calins et de Baisers,

Note: I purchased these products with my own money!

Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes Review!

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes!

Here is a bit of information about the product. Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes are an instant complexion facial treatment that whisks away makeup without leaving a trace. Developed with Green Tea, known for its antioxidant and detoxifying benefits, these new cleansing cloths deliver a clean you can see and feel – without soap and water. Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes are infused with Vitamin E, Green Coconut Water, and Indian Ginseng that are known to moisturize, nourish, and rejuvenate even while removing the most stubborn makeup!

Naturally, I love a good challenge, so I decided to put Biore Makeup Removing Toweletts up against my long-wear products and sensitive prone skin. I know you have to be asking by now, can this 2-in-1 beauty product be true. Yes! In addition to lip stains, mascaras, and water proof eye liners; excess dirt and oil is no match for Biore’s makeup removing wipes.

In fact, these wonderfully moisturizing toweletts have become part of my everyday beauty routine! Just before bed, I use a Biore wipe to give myself a mini facial, then I mist with Evian spray. There’s no better way to end the day than with a little me time!

Biore Makeup Removing Toweletts friendly packaging allows me to travel with ease, since there are never any leaks or spills to clean up! My only wish is that the packaging had a plastic lid closure instead of a resealable tab.

This product retails for $7.99!

~Refreshing feel to the skin
~Removes makeup quickly
~Leaves skin soft
~Fresh scent
~Travel friendly

~Resealable tab

Overall, I rate this product at 4.75 out of 5 sugarcubes! Oops! Did I just let the Biore Makeup Removing Toweletts secret out of my travel bag!


Note: Biore sent me this product to review on my blog. I am not associated with the company, nor are they paying me to review their product. As always, my reviews and opinions are 100% my own!
