  • Urban Decay Smoked Eyeshadow Palette - August 15th, 2012
  • Urban Decay has created a new palette for all the smokey eye fans out there! The Smoked palette provides the colors to create a wide range of smokey eye makeup — whether you prefer something more neutral and everyday or very dark and dramatic or colorful and playful. This palette comes with 10 eye shadows (5 are new and exclusive shades), a full-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion”, a how-to booklet, and a travel-size original Eyeshadow Primer Potion!


  • Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in “Vision” - July 31st, 2012
  • After I purchased my first Chanel Illusion d’Ombre eyeshadow in “Mirifique”, I was hooked! I’ve acquired a few of these Illusion d’Ombre eye shadows over the past few months as a result. I purchased this gold one called “89 Vision” when I was in Europe earlier this month. The sparkle on these eye shadows are so beautiful, and they have very minimal fallout for a product packed with so much shimmer. Check out the swatch to see the gorgeous gold sparkle!


  • Essie “Mint Candy Apple” Polish and “Pure Pearlfection” Luxeffects Top Coat - May 3rd, 2012
  • On my search for a true mint-colored nail polish, I came across this Essie Nail Polish in “Mint Candy Apple” at my local CVS drugstore a couple months ago. I finally got around to trying it last weekend, and I really love the color! Since I also just got one of the new Essie Luxeffects Top Coats, I applied “Pure Pearlfection” top coat on my ring finger just to try it out. Luxeffects are textured top coats that can be applied on top of any nail color to add dazzle to your nails.


  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips – Limited Edition Spring 2012 - April 18th, 2012
  • Whenever I go to the drug store, I’m on the lookout for the latest Sally Hansen nail strip designs. I saw a display at CVS for five limited edition designs for this spring. I ended up buying two of them — colorful birds on a silvery white background called “Not a Peep!” and white with pink polka dots called “Pink-a-dot”. Check out my previous review on these nail strips for a step-by-step guide on how to apply them!


  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - April 12th, 2012
  • I am a proud owner of the original Naked palette and have made several looks using it, so I wasn’t in a rush to buy Naked 2 or any other palette for quite some time. Now that I have Naked 2 (after receiving so many requests about it!), I’m really liking the range of colors and finishes — possibly even more than the original! Check out the eye shadow swatches, closeups of the double-ended brush, and how the Lip Junkie Lipgloss looks on my lips. Find out if this palette is right for you!
