Urban Decay 24/7 Liners In Dime And Gunmetal

So I was able to knock two eyeliners off my never ending wishlist this past week. Urban Decay Dime and Gunmetal. Both of these shades are currently discontinued but you may still be able to get your hands on them through ebay or blogsales if you are so determined. And Dime seems to still be on the Ulta website.

Dime is a pure metallic silver with silver glitter, and gunmetal is a dark silvery grey with silver glitter. Both are buttery soft, apply super easily without pulling and are just gorgeous!

Julep Reece, Karmen, Tatiana and Candice!

Now this is NOT a holiday collection, but it sure should be! This just SCREAMS winter holidays to me. Xmas, New Years. Chanukah, Kwanza, Christmukah, Festivus, or any other winter holiday.

Now I will apologize at the get go since I went a little overboard with the swatches. They are just so freaking awesome! Kind of reminiscent to me of the Deborah Lippmann Sugar Plum or Rock This Town sets. But actually, these have a better formula (sorry Deborah Lippmann, I love you!).

Reece - Julep simply describes this as a holographic shimmer. It certainly has holographic shimmer as you can see in the photos, but its kind of a purple/green duochrome with holographic shimmer.

Karmen - Julep describes Karmen as a golden crimson microglitter. Now in the bottle this looks like an INTENSE gold shimmer that is quite obvious. In reality its a gorgeous cranberry shade with a subtle gold shimmer. This is one coat to show opacity, and while you do need two coats, I felt one coat really showed how smooth and even the application is.

Tatiana - Described as a golden burnt orange microglitter. This just looks like autumn and fall and leaves to me. Its a burnt orange with a golden glow. It just looks like outdoor autumn leaves to me!

Candice - Described as a golden chocolate microglitter, This looks like a chocolate brown base with so much golden and even slightly olive shimmer that gives it a much lighter look than the average almost black based polish.

Lorac Dazzling Dozen Limited Edition Eye Shadow Collection

Just regular shadows that you can happily go to the Lorac website and pay $19US per shade! and yes, 12 of them for only $35! That is less than the price of two and you get you 12! I think I may be picking this up as well! EEK!

Butter London Duos In Ice And Fire

Ok! Here we go! Its time! A holiday set from Butter London (or two) that I NEED!!!!!!! Finally! I get to get all excited and jumpy here!

There are two sets, Ice and Fire. Ice includes Bluecoat and Leccy Top Coat and Fire includes Rebel Fox and Brass Monkey Top Coat.

Each set is $24 each and I am about to see if my US polish dealer (haha, I love her, really!) can pick these up for me! Go check them out on the Ulta website.

Butter London Glam Rock Set For Holiday 2013

Another Limited Edition set from Butter London is this Glam Rock set. Also minis, these polishes are $39 and you get 5 of Butter London's stock list of colours along with one brand new shade. Colours include West End Wonderland, Pillar Box Red, Slapper, All Hail The Queen, Buckie and Trout Pout. Buckie is the new one and the gorgeous purple!

Once more, not a set I am jumping on since I own all but the new one but if I want to pretend for a minute that the world does NOT revolve around me and every set should NOT be made to make me happy (remember, this is just a pretend scenario) than its a great set and a great way to test out some colours!

Available on the Ulta website right now! 

Limited Edition Butter London 12 Piece Polish Set For Holiday 2013

Exclusively at Ulta, Buttter London has a set of 12 mini 6ml polishes for Holiday 2013 in a nice gift box.

Butter London Holiday 12 Piece Fashion Size Set. A carefully crafted box with signature details and a bespoke selection of 10 fashion size lacquers, 8 of their favorite shades, 1 from the vault, 1 NEW shade. Nail Foundation and Hardware round out this brilliant gift!

Now usually this is where I get all excited and giddy and tell you how much I need this set and that it WILL be mine. Instead, I am going to rant. Butter London, you REALLY dropped the ball on this set. Contained in this set are: Cake Hole (pink, no thank you), Come to Bed Red (not big into reds or I would have this already), Blagger (have), Dodgy Barnett (have), Jaffa (have), Henley Regatta (have), Fruit Machine (another pink), Yummy Mummy (have), Prince's Plums(vault) (this is a super old gorgeous colour that never came out in the new packaging, but I actually own it already), NEW The 444 (apparently the one amazing awesome 6ml polish that should propel us to drop $65 for this set?).

Im all for great large sets of mini colours for a reasonable price, but are you freaking kidding me Butter London?! Most of the people who shell out $60+ on nail polish would be the people who are hooked on polish and obsessed like I am. And those people would have most of these colours. Old vault colours is a smart idea, but one? So at most, you want us to shell out $70 after taxes for two little 6ml polishes?


If however you disagree with me, you can pick up this set on the Ulta website right now!

Green Tea Facial Mask From Skinfood

So Skinfood is a Korean brand that is quite popular. Since I have been on a face mask kick lately I picked up a few sheet masks to try out.

I am not going to go on about how I feel it worked, because to be honest, I only kept it on about 3 minutes before being digusted and tossing it.

This mask is REALLY wet. And by REALLY wet, I mean dripping down my neck and on to my pj shirt the entire time. And its really really big.

I couldnt position it on my face anywhere that it actually sat on my entire face. And while it might work if you remained lying down on your bed on your back the entire time, it was so wet that I would have made a big wet spot on my bed.

I was really excited to try this, but I sadly took it off after three minutes because I just couldn't handle it any longer. Have you tried one of these masks before? What was your thoughts?

2013 Jack Purcell Converse Collection For Hudson’s Bay Company

Ok, I must admit. I WANT these! More than even I thought I would when I heard about. I am jus thead over heals in love with these converse shoes made out of (ok, not really, but they look like it) bay blankets! Sold exclusively at Hudson's Bay, these are limited edition and have a suggested retail price of $120. I DON'T need these! I KNOW I don't need these. But oh my gosh I WANT these!

OPI and IPhone 5 Team Up For An Exclusive Set!

Here is a bit of a different set from OPI. Exclusively at Ulta, you can pick up an OPI polish and a corresponding IPhone 5 case! They are pricey at $39 but even myself NOT really being an OPI fan of the highest regard would jump at the blue one if they were for the Galaxy. Seriously people! Samsung Galaxy has become the first phone to OUTSELL the IPhone and sells more worldwide than IPhone still. So why does every cute case out there on the market come out for IPhone?! HUH!???

Shades are Pink Flamenco, You Dont Know Jacques, Dating A Royal and I’m Not Really A Waitress! What do you guys think?

Tarte Gorgeous Getaways Portable Palette

If you will all recall, I showed you this the other day:

And I mentioned how much I wanted it. For those of you who think this is too big and too much packaging, how about this set?

Now I ALMOST love it. The truth is I only want the palette and the blush out of the first set. I think I have
already promised away a few things in the kit. So I really do/would like this set except that it is to me EVEN MORE bulky. The palette in the other set is super thin and flat, where as this set has a box with a drawer underneath and would take up A TON of room in my stash. But for many of you, this set might be better.

In the set, is 16 full sized amazonian clay eye shadows, 4 full size amazonian 12-hour clay blushes in limtied edition shades, 3 full sized maracuja lipglosses and a portable collector’s compact for the interchangeable squares!

Oh! And if you are American, this is an Ulta exclusive for only $48 dollars! For an idea of value, a single blush (there are four in this set) retail for $26!
