Lime Crime Lipstick Swatches

I've got some Lime Crime swatches for you guys!! Don't forget to enter my giveaway here!

I'll have another post up sometime this month too, because I placed an order on Black Friday with Lime Crime too, but without further ado:

Products mentioned:


  • Airborne Unicorn - I absolutely love it and do think it's wearable. One of my fav. colors of the collection.
  • D'Lilac - Love it, but a little too crazy for me, definitely will use it, but in moderation.
  • Coquette - Awesome nude shade
  • Chinchilla - Really unique, amazing shade. Definitely wearable even though it's a bold color.
  • Mint to Be - Completely unwearable, and the consistency was so different from the other lipsticks, it was very drying and hard to work with. 
  • Cosmopop - Beautiful coral/pink/orange shade. Unique, crazy, but still wearable.
  • My Beautiful Rocket - One of my fav. colors of the collection. Amazing, perfect orange.

Carousel Gloss:

  • Holly Gram - Such an interesting, unique lipgloss. Definitely might be considered "unwearable" by many, but I actually think I can rock this and pull it off (call me crazy!)

Zoya MatteVelvet Jewels Gift Set Trio Review/Swatches

UPDATE: According to their FB page, the Trio Set might be sold out as early as tomorrow (11/22/13) go get your hands on it now if you want it!

Hey Everyone! 

I have some swatches and a review for you guys on the Zoya MatteVelvet Jewels LE (Limited Edition) Gift Set Trio.

I have the colors: Veruschka, Savita, Posh which come in a collection set for $27. This IS a limited edition collection. It's perfect for the holiday seasons so I suggest grabbing it!

Based on their website they say that these are not meant to be worn with a base coat, top coat, or any speed dryer. Also, since the formula for these nail polishes are unique they tend to not be as long wearing. I literally JUST got the trio in and haven't tested out its longevity yet, but Zoya has never failed to amaze me.

The purpose of the entire collection is that they dry matte, but there is shimmer to them. Although they suggest not wearing a top coat, if you do, the colors aren't matte anymore but they do come out glossy and beautiful.

Here are some pictures (non with base or top coat):


Veruschka is a gorgeous emerald green. It's very opaque and I used 2 coats to get the perfect coverage/consistency. Green is my favorite color so I obviously love this polish.


Posh is a beautiful, classy ruby red. It took longer to dry and turn matte the the other shades, but once it dries I do think it's gorgeous. I don't love the color red on my nails, but once it finished drying (and turning matte) I think it may have been my favorite shade from the collection.


Savita is described as an amethyst purple shade. I would just go with the term "grape" :p
It reminds me so perfectly of a purple grape, especially once it's matte because often grapes take on that matte texture. I love purple, but this was probably my least favorite shade from the collection which isn't saying too much because it's only 3 shades and they are all really great. I also found this shade to take more coats then the others. In the swatch I am wearing 3 coats and to be truly opaque I could've used one more coat.

Overall, I love the collection, as I do almost every other Zoya nail polish I own. If you follow me on Instagram  you may have seen the pictures I post about my Zoya polishes...I have a LOT. This collection is perfect for the holiday season, specifically Veruschka and Posh.

Anyway, run out and buy this! It's awesome!

Matte^2 Masculine Glamour Doll Eyes Collection Swatches

DISCLAIMER: I bought this collection with my own money, I wasn't paid to do this review in any way. I just love GDE! :D

Hey! So I got a chance to purchase this collection early to review/swatch it for you guys! You all should know by now how obsessed I am with Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadows. I'll leave my comments about the collection below the swatches. The concept behind the collection came from Unveil (from the Halo collection, I have that swatched here). They are all mattes with a shimmer/sheen to them.

So without further adieu:

All swatches are:
Top -White Base (NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk)
Middle -Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bottom -No base

So as always, love the colors/shadows. These are all matte colors (hence the name of the collection) so they are much trickier to work with then other shadows. They all definitely need a base if you want to get a really good, vibrant color out of them. Some colors were particularly tricky to work with (Courageous, Fearless, and Irrational) but they all still came out great with bases. My favorite colors from the collection are definitely Presumptuous, Chivalrous, Irrational(despite its difficult nature) and Inconsiderate (because it's such a nude color but I think it's done beautifully).

This collection is going to be released June 21st and it will ONLY be available for 6 months so be prepared to get your hands on it if you're interested.

Zoya Polish Exchange for Earth Day is Back

One of my favorite sales ever is back!!! Zoya Polish Exchange!

Basically, you pick any polishes you want (with the exception of the PixieDusts) and you have to buy a min. of 6 and then use the code ZOYAEARTH2013 to get 50% off. The catch is that they hope you will return polishes to them that aren't Zoya and they will recycle them for you!

You don't HAVE to return polishes, but it's a nice touch.

Click here is the link to more information about the sale!

The polishes I got with this sale are:

If any of you do the sale, let me know what you end up getting!!!

So sorry guys!!!

I have basically been ignoring you all and my blog for this entire semester!! It's been crazy. I'm in my last full semester (I have one more as a part time student) so I've been so busy with work and school.

School is over in 2 weeks and I will be posting a GDE swatch post and video. I'll also be posting a Zoya polish swatch blog.

Again, SO sorry it's been a while. It's hard for me to keep up. I wish this blog was big enough where I can focus on JUST this :p but unfortunately I cannot do that...yet :p
