NCLA Let Them Eat Cake Review + Nail Polish Canada’s Great Polish Giveaway!

NCLA Duchess of LA Let Them Eat Cake! Review Swatch (2)

NCLA Let Them Eat Cake (Duchess of LA)

NCLA recently launched the Duchess of LA collection, which is a cute little range of pastel glitter shades. I have Let Them Eat Cake, a pastel purple with multidimensional glitter to share with you today. I really love the idea of these cream polishes with glitter in them. It’s such a cool trend. I like Let Them Eat Cake because it’s perfectly opaque in 2 coats, and the glitter comes in different colors and sizes, so it’s essentially instant nail art without the effort!

Ask Me Your Questions for August Q&A! | Video

Olivia Frescura Q&A OliviaMakeupChannel

As a beauty blogger, I find that I never have the space to answer questions that aren’t related to beauty. So, I decided to open the floor up to my readers and YouTube friends to ask me ANYTHING! Get creative with those questions. Would love to talk about FIDM, my current college, studying abroad in Italy this fall, Invisalign, being a “big girl,” boys, etc. I want to give you the opportunity to ask me as many questions you may have, and because I don’t think many will ask, I will be able to answer nearly every single one! I am planning on answering the questions in August, maybe around August 19th, my 22nd birthday, so get to thinking! Don’t be afraid to leave a comment with 10 questions, I want you to!

Share Beauty With Regency Beauty Institute & Refinery29 (& Contest!)

Today I am going to be telling you guys a bit of my story, thanks to the Regency Beauty Institute x Refinery 29 #ShareBeauty campaign. I started this post off with their adorable Beauty Grew All Around video, because it really shows a story of making a childhood dream into a reality. In addition to my story, learn about the #ShareBeauty Contest, the prize being a customized VIP beauty treatment worth $2,000 courtesy of Regency Beauty and Refinery29!

For me, my dream realization came a little bit late, at 16, when I uploaded my first makeup video on YouTube. At first I thought I wanted to be a makeup artist. I toured a beauty school, and did test makeup shoots and found that I didn’t want to be touching people’s faces all day. So, I decided I wanted to work in corporate beauty. I found the right school for me in my senior year of high school, just in the nick of time. I put all my eggs in one basket and it was the only school I had applied to. I was accepted, and began my 2 year program a few months after I turned 18.

After Graduation outside of Staples Center


18 months later, I graduated, went to New York twice, and started working my way in the industry by interning at a cosmetics company, doing 100% of their social media. All while maintaining a YouTube channel and blog! Since then I’ve decided to go back to school to get my bachelors, am interning at a PR company, and am about to leave the states for 3 months to study abroad in Florence, Italy. I will be taking my readers and YouTube subscribers along to see what’s unique and different in Europe about the beauty industry, and promise to make some great videos along the way! I’m definitely still a work in progress, but I’m still young and have a lot of learning to do.

Until August 13, 2014, you have the chance to enter Regency + Refinery29′s #ShareBeautyContest. Entering is simple! All you have to do is check out the contest page, try one of the trends mentioned, and snap a selfie on Instagram with hashtag #ShareBeautyContest. Keep in mind that your instagram has to be public so the judges can find you! And that’s it! Are you ready to share your beauty?

Beauty & Fashion Haul! Sephora, VS, ASOS, Old Navy | Video

This month I’ve started to prepare for my study abroad by purchasing some clothes and some makeup I thought I’d need! I only found a few things, but I thought they were worth haulin’! I am the type to wear the same outfits over and over again, so this haul was a bit overdue. But now I’m going to try to refrain from shopping since I’m saving up for a computer upgrade (from PC to MacBook!) before I leave in September! Watch the video to see what I picked up, and shop my haul with Chippmunk, which I’m just trying out for the first time! They have coupons for all of the places I shopped at!

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Sample worth the mention: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso

Victoria’s Secret:
Black Cotton Lingerie Bikini Panty

Black Midi Dress w/ Short Sleeves
Fold Up Sliders in Coral
Swing Tank In Lips Print
Baseball Raglan Sleeve Tee

Old Navy:

What was your fave thing I hauled? Comment below!

P.S. Sorry this is such a lackluster post…I’m writing it less than 12 hours before posting, and I just got back from a long video shoot that I can’t wait to share with you once it’s live within the next 2 months. But for now, my lips are sealed!

Orange You Glad Tangerine Tuesday Is Back?

Tangerine Tuesday Orange Lipstick Collection Olivia Frescura

Piles and piles of orange lip products

Today I have some exciting news (well, at least for me)- I’m bringing Tangerine Tuesday back! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a post on an orange makeup product. Which is a bummer, because orange is my trademark! Since I started rocking orange lips in late 2011 and started the series in May 2012, orange has become a much more popular makeup shade. YAY! More orange for me, more orange for you. Look out for more TT posts in the coming weeks, starting slow with some orange lipsticks, but I promise more is to come- the sky is the limit!

Share in the comments- what is your fave orange/coral makeup product?
