Unfortunately i haven't had the privledge to swatch this nail polish for you guys yet but the minute i do, I will definitely post it. :)
Mattese Elite is Ricky's Own brand of cosmetics.
Happy Hour is the newest collection in nail varnish that is SCENTED! It's this summer's hottest trend. This colors are funky, fun, bright, and did i mention they smell amazing!
I own Tequila Sunrise, I'm not really sure what scent it is. I believe it's orange.
Apple Martini is apple scented, Hypnotic is blue raspberry scented, Cosmopolitan is strawberry, Shirley Temple is bubble gum scented and Purple Passion is grape scented. The only con about these polishes is that they're very sheer. I used 3-4 coats on one nail just to get an opaque look. It doesn't work well with Shatter Polishes either. The scent lasts for 2-3 days and is just $5.99. It's fun, affordable and trendy. You can find them at any Ricky's NYC locations or buy them online. I hope you try them out. If you do, email me the pictures at colourmebonita@gmail.com and I'll post your swatches on my website.
If you have any questions or want reviews on any other products email me with the subject line "Product Review" and i'll get back to you ASAP. I'll be posting new tutorials soon so i'll keep you posted ! Thanks for visiting.

M.A.C Made Up

This has become my signature look lately and I wanted to share it with you all.
Products Used:
M.A.C's EyeShadow Primer in BamBoom
Coastal Scents 88 Matte Palette
M.A.C's Eyekohl in Black
Maybeline's Falsies Mascara in Noir
Wet N' Wild's Black Liquid Eyeliner
Mint Eye Kohl liner from Spehora's Collection
M.A.C's Skin Refresher Fix + in Lavender.

Avon's Magix Face Perfector Primer
Avon's Ideal Shade Mineral Foundation Powder in Toffee

Mattese Elite Blush in Pink Lady

Prevail Small Crease Brush
Prevail Fluffy Crease Brush
E.L.F Medium Eye Shader Brush

To Get This Look::;

After applying my primer and foundation,
I used M.A.C's paint pot in Bamboom all over my lid and lower lash line.
I used Coastal Scents 88 Palette's Copper Gold color all over my lid and blended out just above the crease with the fluffy crease brush.
I lined my bottom lashline with a Mint Eye Kohl from Sephora.
Then I used the small crease brush and used a turquoise color on my water line and lower lash line and blended it out. I spritz M.A.C's fix plus on the small crease brush and brushed it against the line I made with the turquoise. It helps set the color even longer. I lined the water line with the M.A.C black eye kohl and used white eyeshadow to catch the line in my inner corner.

I applied Wet N' Wild's liquid eyeliner in black as close to my lashes as possible.
I applied two coats of Falsies Mascara and spritz my face with M.A.C's Fix (+).

I applied Mattese Elite's blush in Pink Lady on the apples of my cheeks and blended upwards.

Lastly, I used Victoria's Secret's Baby Doll Lip Glass on my lips and put on smile and called it a day.
