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....

A couple weeks ago I reviewed one of the new NYX Bronzer & Blusher Combos in the shade Ibiza. Since then I received a few more of them so you could see them all next to each other and compare. There are five in total and the one I do not have is Bora Bora, which I believe is the deepest and...

I have been meaning to edit and post these photos for probably 2 months now. But I FINALLy have done it so here goes. I reviewed one of the ELF Holiday Beauty Eye Books already right here (Smoky), but I picked up the other three at the same time. They are Glitter Eye, Natural Eye and...

It looked exactly on my lips like it does in the swatch photo above. Just a very sheer pink/clear gloss. Front Row Red Lip Gloss Lady in Red Lip Gloss 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...

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...
