Lash Accelerator!

My newest mascara is the Lash Accelerator by Rimmel London.  I saw this in an ad and thought it was pretty cool.  It is supposed to grow you lashes ammediately when you put it on and also if you use it for 30 days the company claims it will also grow your lashes.  Now I have had this mascara for at least 6 weeks and I see no grow in my lashes but I do love the length it gives my lashes when I put it on.  It does not get very clumpy but every once and a while you have to clean off the brush.  All and all I give it 3 and a half stars.  Will I repurchase this item?  Maybe, we'll see.

Illamasqua "Raduim" Nail Polish

Illamasaqua is sold at Sephora and  I have been eyeing their nail polish for a while now and finally I decided to splurge on it.  At $14 a bottle I can't see myself buying a ton of it but for just one, why not.  So today at Sephora I was looking for another one of Illamasqua's nail polishes called "Rare" but they were all sold out.  So I decided that I would buy "Raduim" instead. 
I have to say I do not have a nail polish that looks similar but I do remember back in the day N.Y.C. New York Color had a similar one.  Over the years I guess it dried out and I had to throw it away but I can remember that it was pretty similar. 
All in all I do like the consistency and the brush.  The Brush isn't too big or too small.  It was easy to polish my nails and dried pretty fast.  I would definitely recommend Illamasqua to a friend.  I now have my eye on a coral color.
