Nails. INC Plant Power Nail Polish, Top Coat

Nails. INC Plant Power Nail Polish, Top Coat


Nails Inc recently launched a new collection of Plant Power Nail Polishes ($10; sephora.com) that are formulated vegan, 21-free and  with up to 73% plant based ingredients. The colors are great basics and the formula, especially the creams are mostly one coaters and fantastic. The packaging looks amazing with the solid, but eco friendly100-percent FSC Ash Wooden Caps that add a weighty look to the polishes. I tried the polishes and the top coat from the range and absolutely loved them all. The colors went on smooth, leveled up well and there was no bubbling from the formula. While they were all one coaters, I did two for maximum opacity and added the Plant Power Top Coat ($15; nailsinc.com) to seal the color and add some gloss. The top coat also worked well with my other polishes and kept my polish looking fresh for a couple of days until I saw mild tip wear on my fingers and for almost a week on my toes.The brush design is very comfortable and wide with a slight curve that helps with close to perfect application!

Honest Beauty LIT Powder Blushes

Honest Beauty LIT Powder Blushes

The Honest Beauty LIT Powder Blushes ($13; ulta.com) are illuminating, pigment packed powder brushes that give off a gorgeous glow. They come in four colors with fine shimmer running through them. The texture is super soft and buttery, almost to the point that if you dip a dense brush it could crumble. I like to use a fluffy, less dense brush and sweep it across the cheeks for a nice pop of color. It is quite easy to go overboard with this one, so be sure to go light handed. The shimmer translates to an almost subtle highlighter-like sheen on the cheeks and doesn’t accentuate my pores. Frisky is my favorite of the three that I’ve tried and is very easy to wear. It’s a color that would work with most skin tones effortlessly. Overall, if you like powder blushes that are easy to blend and have a soft sheen to them, these are worth checking out!

Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze In Bare Back

I’m a bit late to the party with these Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze Sticks ($32; sephora.com). They are cream blushes that have a matte finish but are easy to blend with fingers or brushes. I also like the brush it comes with. Bare Back is a pale pink and a rather nice, cool toned nude on my skintone. I like how subtle it is and how easy it is to wear with any kind of makeup look. Nudestix recommends using this on lips as well, but I prefer it on the cheeks and even on my eyes and find the formula to be slightly drying on the lips. The color range is gorgeous and I can see how the warmer colors will work beautifully for medium-dark skin tones like mine. The formula is also gluten, fragrance and cruelty free. Overall, if you like cream blushes and want something similar to the discontinued Bite Beauty Multisticks that can be used for a monochromatic look, give these a try!
