Model Co Free Eyeshadow & Discount Code

Hi Everyone!

I still haven't been able to transfer photos from my phone to my lap top... so no pics but...


(AKA WHAT I PICKED UP TODAY....)


CLEO's Australia Current Edition has..


A FREE MODEL CO EYE SHADOW TRIO worth $39
for all readers who purchase it

There are 3 to collect
(but do you buy more than 1 of the issue to collect the eyeshadow? I mean, it makes sense since the e/shadow is worth $39... but... I have not done this before, have you?)

Palette choices available:
- Smokey Eye
- Bronzed Goddess (I got this one! Soooo predictable... I am ALWAYS drawn to these shades!!)
- Island Fever

IF I could I would collect all of them!! But... umm... the person at the checkout might think I am weird... or have hoardering issues... or... I COULD USE SELF-CHECKOUT! :D

Pictures to come, promise!

I also got a bunch of new stuff to show you guys, need to figure out how to transfer pics... OR find my camera & accessories!!!! (Later sounds more probable!)


***
The eyeshadow pallete is "Made in PRC" (aka China)



ALSO

THERE IS A DISCOUNT CODE OFFERED TO ALL CLEO READERS
for online purchases only

you get.... 30% off MODEL CO at the Online Store

How to save dying nail polish.... + Haul


I have previously posted a haul about these but here are better pics:

I got all four! :D

FAIR GAME
swatched/NOTD here

DA BUSH
(what's with the name?)
To be swatched! :) (untried!)

LION AROUND
LOVE the name!
Swatch/NOTD here

YOUR HUT OR MINE
To be swatched (untried!)


HAUL:

SECHE RESTORE
Professional Kit
59mL


Here's what it claims to do...




How to make goopy nail polish 'new' again?
Put a few drops of this in it, shake/roll and leave for a few minutes then apply! The formula should be less gloopy, if it is still a bit then add a few more drops of the Seche Restore!!

Have I tried it?
Yes, and it works! :D (Hence, how I can explain the method above!)


HAUL TO COME:

Victoria Secret Products


What have you been hauling lately?

I finished a nail polish!! :D First one for 2011!!

&&& it is....

OPI natural nail base coat


So... not a nail polish color... but a base... still an empty nail polish bottle (full size!!... 15mL!!)

Here it is before I used it 2 more times... :)



It got gloopy & i could not take any more out then I threw it out...

how long did it take me to finish it?
about 6 months

Will i repurchase?
already had a back up ready to go! am using the back up now!

Hit or miss?
hit!


What nail polish have you used up?

Essie Good To Go Top Coat Review


pros:
- fast drying
- nice square bottle
- clear bottle
- nice brush

cons:
- does not work with OPI nail polishes for me... or any other nail polish brand... ONLY ESSIE... this may just be me? But it chips in a couple days with other brands :( booo!!!

would I repurchase?
maybe... but I have a backup of this :) (in an upcoming haul!! tune in!!) and will use that happily with Essie nps only


Have you tried this yet? What's your fave top coat?


Lara xo

OPI Dim Sum Plum & Teenage Dream - NOTD

2 coats:




1/2 coat of OPI Teenage Dream


OPI Rapidry
(not a huge fan of this top coat - it's shiny but I'm not sure I like it... super fast drying though - gave 3 bottles to my mum because she likes fast drying things!)




What's on your nails today?

The cause of my addiction: Butter London Fash Pack – Swatch & Review (NOTD)

Here is my single lonely Butter London nail polish!

As the title suggests… it was the nail polish that started my addiction!! How did it happen?

I grocery shopping & it was attached to one of the magazines, (I already had the mag but bought another copy to give a copy to my mum & kept the nail polish on the new mag! :D)

So... prior to this, my mother had given me 2 nail polishes - A clear Rimmel one (which I have finished! So no longer in my collection!) and a Cutex frosty nail polish (I love!! I have used sooo much of it! So afraid to use it all up but will cuz it's perfect for Summer & Spring pedis!!!!)

So I started with 2 nail polishes.... (I had more but purged ages ago & they were cheap brands!)

&& then... BA DA BAM!!!!

This came along!






2 coats:



&&&& I began to purchase more nps.... -_-
ahhaha

- This may be a dupe for Chanel's Particulere (is that how you spell it....?)
- Nice fall shade... but it's a bit meh for me now... maybe just my mood lol - I will give it another chance later.. I have been into bright colors these days!



What's your nail polish story?
