Sinful Colors in Haute Koffee + Comparisons

Direct sunlight
Here's one apropos for the shift into the fall season. Today's polish is one of my favorites from the Kylie Jenner/Sinful Colors collaborations. This is Haute Koffee, a gorgeous vampy berry shimmer with a matte finish and that glow-from-within. I am a huge fan of shimmery matte polishes, and I'm a sucker for vampy colors, so this one is a home run for me. And it's only $2.99! The formula is perfect, it doesn't dry too quickly, so you don't get any ridges, and it's just the right consistency. I used 2 thin coats.

Haute Koffee was released with the Summer 2016 "Trend MATTErs - Pure Satin Mattes" collection. According to SC's website, this collection is still available at select Target and Walgreens stores. In my Target, they've been replaced by the Halloween collection. But they are still available at

Formula X in TGIF + Comparisons | Formula X System XCEL

Direct sunlight

Last month I was sent some products from Sephora's Formula X line. I've been testing out the Formula X System XCEL against my favorite products, and today I'm going to show you the results.
The System XCEL features 4 products: CLEANSE XCEL Nail Cleanser, PRIME XCEL Base Coat, SHINE XCEL Top Coat, and the polish of your choice - I received TGIF. This set retails for $32, which Sephora lists as a $44 value, but the value can be higher or lower depending on which Formula X polish you choose (the price is $32 no matter the polish). I was also sent the Delete All 5-Finger Nail Polish Remover, which retails for $15. You can see how this system fared after the jump!
