Little Miss Scare All

Little Miss Scare-All
A dark purple jelly with pink shimmer and red and copper glitters
My Take
To me this is a rich red-toned purple jelly with red and copper glitters. It’s gorgeous. The name Little Miss Scare-All comes from the Type O Negative song Black #1.

 

In case you’ve never heard Black #1, here you go.

Pretty and Polished Black is the New Orange swatch

Black is the New Orange
a black to orange color changing polish, color changes in HEAT.
My Take
I love heat changing polish but I in the past I couldn’t get it to change on me. However on the nail wheel I was able to make it change. I love that it’s black to orange! Really cool. This one is, of course, inspired by the netflix series Orange is the New Black. When worn, this really did cycle through bright orange, black, and orange with a black tip. It was really neat to watch!

My Take
Purple stars, teal blue hearts, and all kinds of random shapes? Love it! It will look great on top of black, orange or white polish.

I think Little Miss Scare All looks gorgeous. I love the deep, dark eggplant purple with the copper flecks. I’m also pleased with how nicely Black is the New Orange changes color.

The formula on Little Miss Scare All and Black is the New Orange was great. For She Did the Mash, I would recommend dabbing the glitter on. You don’t have to fish any out, but if you dab you can get cooler looking coverage on your nail.

Little Miss Scare-All is definitely my favorite of the collection! What’s yours?

Urban Decay Vice 3 Alien Tutorial

The lighting is horrible here at my grandma’s but I have a quick picture tutorial to share with you. It’s my Urban Decay Vice 3 Alien tutorial. I did take my good DSLR camera and  my webcam but with no lighting kit I had to use flash. So anyway, sorry for the terrible lighting, but hopefully you’ll be able to follow the picture tutorial.

Urban Decay Vice 3 Alien Tutorial

TUTORIAL

1. After applying primer, use Truth as a base shade on the browbone and crease
2. Apply Alien to the lid, inner v and lower lid
3. Apply Bondage tothe outer v and outer crease, blending inwards
4. Blend Alchemy into the crease, inner and outer
5. Line the upper lash line and wing it out. Line the upper and lower waterlines
6. Add mascara and you’re done.

I absolutely LOVE these 4 shades from the UD Vice 3 Palette! They are must haves, especially Alien and Bondage! I think the pink lip turned out nice because of the Enchanted + Champagne combo. The lip combo and Alien sort of echo each other.

I’ve been wearing Champagne non stop, day and night and it’s very moisturizing, though not as moisturizing as the original without a tint.

What do you think of Alien, Bondage and the Enchanted Champagne lip combo?

Best Cruelty Free Mascaras You Seriously Need to Try Now

I often get asked for mascara recommendations, so I’m sharing my picks for the best cruelty free mascaras that you seriously need to try now. Why wait to have thick lashes?

MASCARAS

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I’m now on my second tube of this stuff and I love it as much as I did the first time I used it. It gives me some seriously gorgeous lashes. See my super detailed review.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This is a great volumizing mascara. Use a lash comb to separate your lashes with this one as it is prone to clumping up on me otherwise. If you’re a size queen, you will love the brush on this one. See my review.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius
This is a mascara must have in my book! It’s a clear topcoat that you can use before or after mascara that makes any mascara waterproof. So you can use your favorite mascara and make it waterproof and not have to worry about flaking or smudging. See my review.

Perversion, Better Than Sex and Lash Genius are my all-time top 3 favorite mascara products and Subversion primer (below) will soon be added to that short list.

Eyeko Alexa Chung Lash Enhancing Eye Do Mascara
With an oversized brush and a water-resistant formula, this promises a doe-eyed sixties look.

Paula’s Choice MegaLength Mascara
This mascara swears not to smudge, flake or clump. It’s also supposed to give you longer and stronger lashes.

Ardency Inn PUNKER Volume and Curl Lash Wax
With a super-sized curved brush, this mascara is supposed to give you lots of volume and curl with a wax-based formula. It’s inspired by hairstyling pomades.

tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara
With lofty claims of lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning, this mascara vows to give you everything you need. I’ve found it does a good job of lengthening.

tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes™ Statement Mascara
This one claims to lengthen, curl, and amplify volume by up to 752% (crazy claim!) However, I have achieved some super lush lashes with this mascara and I especially like the brush that comes with it.

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara
I love the short hard rubbery brush and the ultra black formula for this one.

MASCARA PRIMERS

Urban Decay Subversion Mascara Primer
This stuff is awesome for me. Since I can’t use fiber type mascaras (they always seem to get into my eyes and under my contacts and it’s uncomfortable), I love a good primer.

Cargo LashActivator Mascara Primer
This is the best black mascara primer that I’ve ever tried. It’s also supposed to help your lashes grow thicker and reduce lash loss.

TREATMENT

Cargo LashActivator Night Treatment
This is supposed to help you grow longer, fuller and more lush lashes. My problem is remembering to use it every night. It doesn’t burn my eyes or irritate them the way other lash serums have in the past.

HOW I APPLY MASCARA

  1. Work on one eye at a time.
  2. Curl my lashes. I use an Urban Decay Cageless Lash Curler that I purchased a few years ago but they no longer sell it. Here’s another cageless lash curler from Amazon that looks great.
  3. Apply my mascara primer.
  4. Apply 1 to 2 coats of mascara.
  5. Finish with a coat of Anastasia Lash Genius.
  6. Comb through lashes with a lash comb if you need to. I use this Sonia Kashuk Lash Comb.

MASCARA REMOVAL

I use Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover. I saturate a cotton round and hold it against my eye for 15 seconds or so and then wipe downwards.

What are your must-have cruelty free mascaras, primers, treatments and tips?

Jack Is Back!  This classic Halloween polish is back for a limited time.  Jack is a black jelly with orange hex glitters, a scattering or orange micro slices and black hexes and shreds.  3 coats provides full coverage with tons of depth, or layer over black to make the orange really pop!

Pictures do not do Jack justice! The orange glitter really pops and shines when worn with a top coat. It’s beautiful.

A deep cabernet red jelly is the backdrop for glitters in red, orange and gold. A scattering of holographic glitters gives this fall themed polish sparkle and shine, perfect in 2-3 coats.

I don’t wear red much. It has to be an AMAZING, eye catching red for me to wear it. This one is amazing. The red, orange and gold glitters really look stunning suspended in the red jelly.

Deep and dark, A Raisin To Live is a deep burgundy, blacken Ox Blood colored polish full of holographic sparkles.  If you love Witch Way, try her vampy cousin ideal in 2-3 coats.

This shade is deep, dark and vampy. I love Witch Way?, so I definitely love A Raisin to Live as well. Witch Way? was one of my first favorite KBShimmer polishes. All those scattered holographic sparkles… love them! I need them in every color!

It’s a teal blue.  And it’s holo! How could I not love it? I think it’s gorgeous and perfect!

This deep, rusty, red leaning pumpkin color is ideal for fall. With its linear holographic rainbow, Rust No One is beautiful indoors and out. This holographic polish covers well in 2-3 coats.

I’m not a fan of orange, but even I can’t deny the beauty of this holographic pumpkin shade. If you are an orange lover you will adore this polish.

Like a well-loved pair of pajama pants, this faded blue polish is warmed with gray undertones. Pops of orange, aqua and teal glitters complete this polish. Best in 2-3 coats.

While I like the pops of aqua and teal in this one, it’s not my favorite. This is probably why I don’t wear flannel. That, and it’s really too hot for flannel in Florida.

I love this one! I love all the stars, plus the purple. So much fun!

Jeans are a girl’s best friend, after diamond of course, and this dusty navy color is the perfect complement to denim. Applying Stonewashed is a breeze with 1-2 coat coverage.

This color makes me think of the ocean at night, so like a deep blue with hints of dark teal.

Like sands through the hourglass, this “greige” polish is a perfect blend of creamy beige and a light grey, offering full coverage in 1-2 coats.

Lavender might not be a traditional fall color, but with lavender being paired with pumpkin in scents and food, this blue leaning pastel color is popping up all over. This light lavender cream offers full coverage in just two coats, and pairs well with Kiss & Spell.

I think this would be another good shade for nail art. It also looks great with glitter on top.

KBShimmer Stonewashed, Up and Cunning, Kiss and Spell, Jack, Leaf of Faith, A Raisin to Live

My Favorites – Stonewashed, Up and Cunning, Kiss and Spell, Jack, Leaf of Faith, A Raisin to Live

I found the formula on all of these typical of KShimmer. I didn’t have to fish the glitter out. They weren’t streaky.  They’re really easy to work with.

My favorites from the collection are easy to choose this time! Up and Cunning is a perfect teal blue holo. Stonewashed is a fabulous deep dark ocean blue (to me) and it looks great covered in glitter. Kiss and Spell is fun to put on top of everything and it’s packed with stars. I love star shaped glitter!

Jack is fun. I may not typically wear orange polish on its own, but the bright orange suspended in the black is really pretty. A Raisin to Live is that deep dark vampy shade that I keep wanting on my lips, so it makes sense to crave it on my tips, too. Plus, the scattered holo glitter in it is my favorite type! Finally, Leaf of Faith is so vivid and the glitter in it does make me think of Fall. It’s very unique to me.

What shades are you loving from the KBShimmer Fall 2014 Collection?

Wearing Cover FX CC Cream in X-tra Light, Darling Girl eyeshadows and OCC Lip Tar in Technopagan

This shade is not for the mild. Technopagan is described as a metallic blackened purple with blue pearl and I think that fits it perfectly. I just love how this color looks with my hair. It’s perfect!

For me, this was one of the easier lip tar shades to apply. I do wish it had a matching pencil though!

My Tips for Application

  1. Start by exfoliating your lips.
  2. Moisturize your lips after you exfoliate.
  3. Blot off any excess moisture.
  4. Apply OCC Lip Tar in Clear as a base or use OCC Colour Pencil in Anti-Feathered (clear) or another pencil you like.
  5. With a lip brush, take a tiny rain drop amount of Technopagan (or any other lip tar shade you want to use) and use that to paint the thinnest layer of color possible on your lips. If you get more product than you anticipated, start at the center inner part of your lips and work your way out.
  6. Blot if necessary.

I need to talk about the value of lip tars. These are an amazing deal for the price. You’re getting .33 oz of product for $18. Compare that to Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks, which are $22 for .09 oz, MAC lipsticks (not cruelty free) that are $16 for .10 oz, Ardency Inn, which are $25 for .12 oz, and Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, which are $21 for .4 oz. Only the Too Faced Melted lipsticks come close for the value.

I’m really glad I picked up this shade because, while I think it’s a daring choice for Fall and I absolutely love it, it’s a color I can see myself wearing year round.

What do you think of Technopagan? Would you wear this lip tar, or stick to the matching nail polish?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette

What Tamanna Roashan said about each of the colors in the Tamanna palette

FRESH: a full pigmented creamy matte, my personal preference to highlight a clean bold browbone without looking like a shiny disco ball

BLUSH: a smooth shimmery highlight that I love to add a pop of shine to the tear duct or all over the lid for a clean yet light-reflective look

VENEZIA: a gorgeous teal blue shimmer for the perfect pop of bold color inspired by the exotic jewels of India and the Middle East

GILDED: a rich antique gold that glides on like a cream with beautiful metallic finish CUSTOM: a highly versatile antique metallic grey-taupe which I love to use for both soft and dramatic smokey eye looks

SANGRIA: a fully pigmented rich cranberry shimmer which glides on effortlessly and can blend into a softer rose hue

BENGAL: a silky-soft matte warm brown, my ultimate crease shade for every look

CHOCOLATE: a heavy long-lasting dark brown to create depth to any look without having to build

CHINA ROSE: the perfect blend of gold, pink, and coral… All in one silky satiny shade inspired by South Asian textiles

NOIR: the blackest black you will ever use… This super matte pigment is out of this world and so intense you won’t believe your eyes. This was the shade I was most excited about when it finally came from the lab!

And there you have it… The science and beauty behind the #TamannaPalette! Now you know why it took a year to create.

The shades I’m most interested in are China Rose, Venezia, Fresh, Gilded and Sangria. I’m guessing I might like the mix of these colors better than the Amrezy palette. I’m not sure if it will outshine the Maya Mia palette. However, the colors inside look pretty and the way Tamanna describes them they sound lovely.

I believe the Tamanna, Maya Mia and Amrezy are all limited edition palettes. The Catwalk palette is available exclusively from Anastasia.net.

You can purchase the Tamanna palette or Maya Mia palette now from Sephora.

Will you be picking up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette? Which is your favorite of the collaboration palettes?

Pretty and Polished It's Funnier in Enochian Collection

Today I’ve got the Pretty and Polished It’s Funnier in Enochian Collection to show you. This is inspired by one of my all time favorite shows, Supernatural.  Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) makes my heart flutter.

Pretty and Polished Hunter Green (Get It?)

Pretty and Polished Hunter Green (Get It?)  Swatch

 

Hunter Green (Get it?)
a dusty medium dark green creme
My Take
A deep rich mossy green creme. Pretty. Try this with black tips.

Pretty and Polished I Can Quit Anytime I Want

Pretty and Polished I Can Quit Anytime I Want Swatch

I Can Quit Anytime I Want
a deep dark red jelly that dries matte
My Take
Deep blood red. In 2 coats it was slightly streaky (I think because of the matte finish), but it looked good in 3.

Pretty and Polished Send in the Clowns

Pretty and Polished Send in the Clowns Swatch

 

Send in the Clowns
a metallic glitter confection
My Take
I’ve never liked clowns. They terrified me as a child and I’m not fond of them as an adult.  This glitter topper is nothing to be scared of. It’s lots of fun bright glitter in different shapes and sizes. The orange definitely makes me think of clown hair.

Pretty and Polished Not For Prophet

Pretty and Polished Not For Prophet Swatch

Not For Prophet
a black, blue, grey and white glitter topper
My Take
I love the blue and grey glitters in this mix. It would look stunning over an orange or a purple.

Pretty and Polished Tools of the Trade

Pretty and Polished Tools of the Trade Swatch

Tools of the Trade
gunmetal holographic
My Thoughts
Deep gunmetal grey holographic. This is gorgeous in 3 coats and I like the depth of the shade.

Pretty and Polished It's Funnier in Enochian Collection

To me the standout shades are Hunter Green (Get It?), Tools of the Trade and Not for Prophet.

I need to make the time to do blackened tips with Hunter Green! How would you use these Fall colors?

Which shades do you like best?
