Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Nail Polish in "So Berry on Trend"

Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Nail Polish in "So Berry on Trend"
It's no secret that Wet n Wild is my favorite drugstore brand so when I saw this display I had to take a closer look. This particular shade appealed to me the most as it's a beautiful red/plum shade and perfect fall shade. 
So Berry on Trend is a  matte red/plum. To me, it isn't really a true matte finish- its kind of satin. It dries very quickly and I applied two coats. After that I applied NYC matte top coat to ensure that it will stay on my nails. I'm not sure if its the top coat or the nail polish formula but after a few days it goes from matte to a little shiny. Nevertheless, it is a lovely color and it lasted 5 days on my nails with minimal wear on the tips.
The matte nail polishes are in almost the same packaging as the regular megalast nail polishes except that the handle is matte which is a cool touch. These matte nail polishes are a LE fall collection along with a few eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks. Unfortunately, I have not been able to spot the eyeshadows or lippies however, if you're interested you can find them on ebay. I'm hopeful that I'll find them in store and I'll save a couple of bucks instead of buying them online as the online prices are more expensive.
I purchased this at Harmon for $1.79.

Milani Constellation Gel Eye Liner in Enchanted Lapis


MILANI CONSTELLATION GEL EYE LINER ENCHANTED LAPIS

MILANI CONSTELLATION GEL EYE LINER ENCHANTED LAPIS

So lately I have been going a little crazy indulging my inner makeup addict. I kind of went on a no buy during the summer. Actually, I just bought a little bit of makeup here and there- let's be honest.
Last week, I went to Walgreens and I saw this on the Milani display and I had to go see what this was about. I have never seen a product like this before. It is one of Milani's new products: Milani Constellation Gel Eyeliner. There are three shades available and I picked up the shade Enchanted Lapis. It was such a tough decision as all of them were so beautiful!

I purchased it for $5.99 and it is on sale at Walgreens. The eyeliner is so beautiful and the packaging is lovely as well. It is plastic with gold which makes it looks so high-end and it comes with a small gold and black eyeliner brush.

Unfortunately, the shimmer is just an over spray and Enchanted Lapis is a gorgeous rich dark blue color- I am head over heels in love with this color! The shimmer over spray reminds of a galaxy and galaxy nail art! LOL

Milani claims that this eyeliner is "long wearing and smooth-gliding gel eyeliner" They also claim that it can be worn as a cat eye or as a smokey look. I wanted to share this product with you all because it's so cool.

UPDATE & Blog name change!


Hello dolls!

This update post is to discuss a few changes on the blog. Lately, I fell into a rut with the blog. I just felt like I was not entirely pleased with it. I created my blog in several months ago under the name of The Bronzed Doll- which I loved but I have decided to change it. I changed my blog name to 50 Shades of Liz because I like it more than my old blog name. I also changed my blog header and I purchased it from Style Point Design on Etsy. I am in love with it and I bought it at an awesome price! Although, I'm happy with the new change, I am also kind of bummed that I have lost all of my bloglovin followers and comments since I changed the blog url.  A tip for someone who is considering changing their blog name is to do it as soon as possible if you're serious about it as you will essentially have to start from scratch.
I like the new direction that my blog is heading in and with that being said I'm planning a ton of new posts- nails, nail art, makeup swatches and reviews!
Another thing is that I have started my junior year of college this year so I don't have enough time to post twice a week like I did this summer. I will try my best to post at least once a week.
I have a few posts planned that I'm excited to share with you all in the next few weeks because it feels like it's been a long time since I have posted on the blog.

What do you think of the new change? 
Do you like it?

Love,
Liz
