What do you love the most about summer?  Do you even love summer?  For me, it's a bit of a love-hate.  I hate the heat and would stay indoors with the shades drawn, the AC on full blast all day if I could, but I also am a plant-hoarder, and as any plant-crazy lady (or guy) will tell you, there really is no substitute for bright sunshine.  But if you are looking for an easier way to get bright pops of color this summer, Sally Hansen has you covered with the Summer Solstice collection.  The nail colors in this summer-themed collection range from bright corals and pinks to softer pastels and golds.  I got to try out 3 of these colors - Koi Coral, Golden Glow, and Ocean Daze.  Scroll on for pics.

Rimmel Magnif'Eyes Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches, Review

Rimmel Magnif'Eyes Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette - Review - Swatches
Rimmel Magnif'Eyes Nude Edition Eyeshadow Palette ($7.99)
Product provided for review

Neutral/nude palettes have been around for a while now, and there is a version or two by every brand.  Despite that, I am always happy to try out the next new "Nude" palette, especially when it's  by a brand that's easy on the pocket like this Magnif'Eyes Nude Edition eyeshadow palette by Rimmel.  The Magnif'Eyes eyeshadow palettes are available in 5 color themes - Nude (pictured above), Smoke (as the name suggest, a darker smokier collection), Spice (warm neutrals – I really wanted this but couldn't find it at my local Target), Blush (rose/plum-toned neutrals), and Color (this one has some brighter shades – teal, copper, gold, along with some neutrals and darks).  I got to try out the Nude edition (thanks to PR folks), and for my medium-dark skin tone, this works great as a soft-neutral eyeshadow palette.  Scroll on for swatches and photos.
