  3. Justina of Justina’s Gems on why she loves Nautica Aqua Gold Rush Cologne – “This is my favorite men’s cologne for summer because it smells SO good. We always have giveaways for women’s beauty products, but let’s not forget about the men in our lives!”

  4. Kristin of beautyXposé on why she loves BioSilk Silk Therapy – “BioSilk leaves my hair smooth and shiny without compromising its natural texture and volume. Plus, I use it in lieu of body lotion when my skin needs some extra hydration!”

  5. Cindy of Prime Beauty on why she loves Mally Evercolor Modern Eyeshadow Duo – “This Mally Beauty eyeshadow duo has a neutral lid shade combined with a bright blue I use for liner to really make my eyes pop! And, the shadows are matte so they don’t emphasize lines! “

  6. Anne of beautyXposé on why she loves beautisol Summer Glow Dark Self Tanning Lotion – “There simply isn’t any self tanner on the market like Beautisol Summer Glow! I love the fact that you get an instant bronze, so you can see where you’ve applied the product and where you still need to rub it in.”

  8. Gabi of Kneadle and Bread on why she loves Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer – “I had all these great lipsticks, but they never really lasted more than a few hours.

  9. Kathryne of The FabZilla on why she loves OCC Lip Tar & Nail Lacquer set – “Hot pink lips + hot pink nails = fabulous to the nth power.”

  10. Kristyn of K Squared Glamour on why she loves Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip in Coral – “The Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip Color is one of my favorite Lip products! It applies smoothly on my lips and sets in seconds once applied. It leaves a beautiful wash of color on my lips for 4-6 hours without budging! My favorite shade has to be coral out of the bunch (I am wearing this shade in my photo).”

  11. The ladies from Beauty Info Zone on why they love Senna Lift & Lighten Eye Cream – “This light eye cream is perfect for underneath your eyes. It doesn’t interfere with makeup and it gives a brightened look. Two positives are going on with this: moisturizing this sensitive area while making you look more alive.”

  12. Mercedes of Beyond Beauty Lounge on why she loves Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow Box – “Urban Decay shadows are one of my favorites and this deluxe eyeshadow set doesn’t disappoint. The velvet texture is amazing, these shadows go on smooth and blend with ease, and of course who can live without primer potion for no creasing long lasting eyeshadow.”

  13. Tish of Cosmetish on why she loves MAC Fix + – “Throw this in your purse and keep your face and looking and feeling fresh all day!”

  14. Jeanie of Midnight Manicures on why she loves Ninja Polish Shillelagh – “My favorite color of polish is green and this one just captures all the features I love in a polish. Ninja Polish Shillelagh from the Enigma collection is a magically delicious polish that reaches through the rainbow for the most perfect shades of green with most magical sparkle. Shillelagh is unlike most color shifting polishes because it requires no base color or ‘underwear’ and is opaque in 2-3 coats. This polish was released in conjunction with not only St Patrick’s day (fun fun) but also with the theatrical release of Oz the Great and Powerful.”

  15. Tina of My Highest Self on why she loves Aveeno Makeup Removing Wipes and Kiss Nail Dress – “The Aveeno wipes are gentle and smell great, they are always in my purse! Kiss Nail Dress is the easiest to apply and a great way to get fancy nails without the fuss.”

  16. Kenzie of Cave Girl in the City on why she loves her beach bag musts: Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, H&M Sunnies and Hair Elastics – “Summer isn’t over yet and these are three essentials for every beach bag! Salt spray to keep your hair looking effortlessly chic, a killer pair of sunglasses and hair elastics that double as a cute bracelet!

    Jessica of InTruBeauty on why she loves Sally Hansen Perfect Arch Brow Kit and Sally Hansen Diamond Coated Slant-tip Tweezer – “Grooming your brows correctly has the potential to shape your entire face. That’s why these products from Sally Hansen are two of my favorites. They get the work done and they make it easy for you!”
Good luck!

Guest Post Tall Girl In Heels Milani 3D Holographic & OPI Do You Lilac It

Guest Blogger/ Milani/ Nail Polish/ OPI/ Swatches
Hello readers of Beyond Beauty Lounge. I’m Tamala from Tall Girl In Heels. Today, I have a drug store holo for you that can measure up to the higher ends holos out there. Milani 3D Holographic polishes are excellent and beautiful. They are around $4-$5 in cost. 
Hi-Res is the polish I’ll discuss today. It is a beautiful lilac purple with tiny holographic glitters throughout. 
Check out these pics:
Milani Hi-Res Polish
Blurry to show the rainbow 🙂
Hi-Res applied very well and no formula issues. This pics shows one coat of Hi-Res over OPI Do You Lilac It, reviewed here. I really like this combination. It works really well together and shows how adding a holo can spruce up a mani. If you want to use Hi-Res alone you may need 2-3 coats for opacity.
What do you think about this combination? Have you tried any Milani 3D holos? I also reviewed Cyberspace here.
Here is Do You Lilac It on its own:
Thanks for reading,
xoxo –Tamala

(Both polishes featured here were purchased with my own money.)

Guest Blogger Polish Obsession

Guest Blogger/ Nails/ OPI/ Sally Hansen/ Swatches

Hi everyone!!  I’m so excited to do a guest post for Beyond Beauty Lounge!  I’m Marisa and I write for Polish Obsession.  I love trying new polishes and dabbling in nail art.

For this post, I decided to share a look that I’ve been loving recently, the glitter accent nail.  I’m definitely a glitter fan, but I don’t always want to wear it on all my nails.  So I’ve been blinging out my ring finger.

I decided to do a mani with one of my favorite fall colors by Sally Hansen, Plum Power.  It’s a gorgeous deep plum shimmer.  For my accent nail, I used OPI Spark de Triomphe, which is jam packed with silver and gold glitter.

Here’s a bottle shot for the two polishes I used:

I really love this look.  It’s not too in your face, but still commands attention.

What do you all think of this look? Do you wear glitter accent nails?

Thanks so much for having me Mercedes!!

I love this look, thanks for sharing Marisa. You dolls can follow Marissa’s blog at
