Color Club | Nail Polish in Disco Nap
This is a really pretty metallic gold color. I haven't swatched this yet but when I do I will be sure to post pictures.
Dr. Jart + | Waterfuse BB Cream**
This was something I was hoping for and really wanted to try out but the tube I received has barely any product in it. A lot of others have also had this problem with the Dr. Jart sample and have contacted BB (as have I) but haven't heard anything back about it yet hopefully we'll hear something soon. I think I'm going to cut my tube open and see if I can at least get enough out for my cheek to see if the color matches.
Derastase | Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide
This is a lightweight serum that says it will give dry strands gorgeous shine. I haven't tried it out yet but it does smell quite good.

I'm not so good with waterproof liner so this is going to take some practice. I do really like the color tho and I'll post swatches of that soon as well.

Kerastase | Cristalliste Lait Cristal Conditioner (foil packet)
