OPI: Peanuts Collection for Halloween 2014!

A few months ago, OPI released images of the Peanuts collection for Halloween this year. I was stoked about the glitters, they looked so different from any glitters OPI has done recently or ever! I managed to do a cute Charlie Brown themed mani and even got a few compliments on it while out and about :)
I did the signature yellow (Good Grief) then an accent and chevron stripes in black (Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?). I alternated the glitters on Good Grief: little finger has To Be Or Not To Beagle (LOVE this one!) and that's on the top of my middle and index fingers along with all on my accent, Where's My Blanket is on the accent finger as well (mixed in with TBONTB) and on the bottom of the chevrons. 
Good Grief has your usual yellow problems and would benefit from a base of white underneath to make it brighter and smoother. Beagle is awesome though with red, yellow, blue, green, orange, light blue, light green glitters mingled in a light black base with small black round glitter and small black bar glitters. The small glitters are the same in Where's My Blanket but the large glitters are only a peach and subtle lime green. 

This collection is available now!

Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.
“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”
 Peanuts by OPI and Little Peanuts mini pack will be available beginning September 2014 at Professional Salons, including Chatters, Planet Beauty and ULTA. Peanuts nail lacquers will retail for $9.50 ($11.50 CAN) each; Little Peanuts mini pack will retail for $13.95 ($17.50 CAN).

Younique: Fiber Lash Mascara review

Hi Monkeys! I have a make up related post for you today! Recenlty a reader sent me Younique Moodstruck Fiber Lash Mascara to review. This stuff is really cool once you get the hang of it.  This kit sells for $29 and can be purchased through a representative for Younique (My contact is the sweet Teresa and you can find her page HERE to order and updates from her Facebook and Instagram)
It is made up of two tubes; one with mascara and one with tiny fibers and they're packaged in a really nice clamshell case. The idea of the mascara duo is to lengthen and thicken your lashes. You put on the mascara, a small amount of the fibers (applied like you do mascara but start halfway on the lashes). This is the most important part- start halfway on your lashes with the fibers and don't use a lot or else it will bunch up, then you can do another coat of mascara to seal it in. Repeat if necessary. I used two really thin coats below.
I have a friend who is a professional make up artist and she also tried out the Fiber Lash Mascara and she's a fan as well. Here is her before, one coat and two coat pictures. 
As you can see, she has really short lashes and this builds a bit of length and increases thickness. If you have an eyelash brush, they could benefit from some separating but it still doesn't look clumpy even if you don't bother separating.
One of the main beefs I have with mascara is making my eyes itch (I have super sensitive eyes) and even with the fibers, my eyes didn't itch because I started them halfway up my lash.  The other beef I have is that mascara is so hard to remove that it sometimes damages my lashes, this was easy to remove, I even used a face wipe and it comes clean without pulling my lashes out with it or leaving any residue that irritates my eyes.

 Mod About You is from OPI's main line and it is a dainty pink creme that's perfect coverage in 2 coats.
