. I am really blown away by both how amazing and unique the colors are and the formula. Buttery. Smooth. Creamy. Opaque. Perfection are the words that all come to mind when describing the formula. Nearly all were just two coats.
Lazy Bum (love the name) is a kind of hard to...
Well I made the mistake of searching swatch photos for shades from the new Pure Color Metal Mania Nail Lacquer collection and then somehow wound up buying four of them! Oops.
Now let me say that it's a bit confusing which shade belongs to either the Beyond Black or Metal Mania collections....
Day Palette, fourth row and blush
The first color is a light shimmery pink
Next is a metallic taupe color
Third is a metallic mauve
Fourth is a deep shimmery eggplant purple
Finally there is the blush, which is a shimmery medium peachy pink
I loved all of these shadow colors, but...
Cargo London Color Palette
is another new and instantly loved eyeshadow palette in my collection.
Besides my blatant love for the city of London, I love the color combo in this palette.
It features more neutral colors than the last one I reviewed (Los Angeles) and two matte shadows as...

I feel there were some hits and misses here, but overall I love the idea of this collection. The best colors in my book were the DeVine...
This is my fav eyeshadow color combo right now.
Cymbal is a glittery orange/copper. Very pigmented and amazing.
Staccato is a deep warm purple shimmer. Super pigmented also.
Harem is a greyish/lavender matte. A wee bit chalky but not bad. Cool shade I think.
Hips is a very pale lilac...
Very vivid and nicely pigmented even without primer (no primer in swatch photo)
Saunter is a very pale nude/peach lip liner. A bit too nude for me...Very 60′s. Reminds me of their old lipstick I wore all the time back in the day – Shrimpton.
Handforged is a metallic gold liner with...
