Essence – Love Peace and Purple

Another awesome taupe-purple with purple shimmer…
peacelovepurple.jpg

This one is a lot like Chanel Paradoxal! Since I already swapped that one, I put it next to Revlon Perplex:

I think that the base has a little more taupe to it than the Perplex, so I think I like it more.

Also, I MUST HAVE THIS! Its an NYC limited edition 2011 Halloween lip gloss called Blackula!

There is something about a black gloss… it just gives your lips a tint that is neutral and a couple of shades darker. I can’t do black lipstick or anything, but a black jelly gloss just looks SO awesome. I’m in love with my MAC Bling Black gloss and that Twilight lip gloss pot that came out in black… so I just have to have this.

If anyone sees it, please let me know… I’ll keep checking Rite Aid for it and hope to grab some!

Color Club – Yum Gum vs. Modern Pink and MAC lip gloss ingredient lists!

These are the two hot pinks I have from Color Club that are a plain creme.

Yum Gum on the left two nails and Modern Pink on the right two:

Its hard to tell a difference really! I took one in a dark corner of my room because I think in the shade is where you can see Yum Gum pops a little more…

If you wanted this color and couldn’t decide which to get, get Yum Gum because it smells so heavenly!!!!

Okay, so on to the MAC lip glosses! I LOVE their lip glosses. Especially the black line!

It is the only formula that doesn’t dry my lips out, it stays on, its nice and smooth, doesn’t have any negatives for me whatsoever! Since I like to try and make my perfect colors out of frankens at times, I wanted to go on TKB Trading and get some mixes. (If you do this, get the rum or pecan flavor oils, holy crap they make it smell sooo good!) I wanted to find the MAC ingredient list so I could pick the same base, but I couldn’t find an updated ingredient list anywhere!

I asked them on their site and it took them weeks to get back to me, but this morning I finally had the ingredient lists!

I am putting it here in case it will be of use to anyone else. 🙂

Quick USA Giveaway – Essence @holographics trio!

When my friend in Switzerland sent me the You Rock polishes, she also sent some of the new @holographics products!

Since these are impossible to get in the US right now (unless you’re lucky enough to have a European friend!?) and they’re so interesting (although I can’t really say they are that holographic?), I wanted to do a quick giveaway to US-only so that you guys can check them out!

These are the 3 things I’ll send you!

eyeshadow in lil@c, lipgloss in holoberry, and nail polish in prismatic white

This ends on June 17th! I’ll be shipping it out on June 18th!

-You must be in the US for this one since I want someone here to be able to get these and check them out before they get to the US
-You must be a follower with Google Friend Connect on the right sidebar

You can post about it if you want an extra entry, as always.
(http://shimmer.starscene.com/ss/blog/index.php/usa-giveaway-essence-holographics-trio is the URL, and you can use the above picture if you’d like as well!)

This will be a fast and fun one! 🙂

Don’t worry international followers… another holographic giveaway with other brands is coming up that’ll be open to everyone! That one is going to be up next week! (USA friends, feel free to enter both of course, you could potentially be picked twice!)

Misa – Blush Hour & OPI – I Juggle Men

Sorry about the lighting on these but I was rushed and wanted to capture them before I killed it with polish remover!

I started with Blush Hour, which is a really opaque and creamy light pink. Its almost like white with a little bit of strawberry milk mixed in. This one applied SO much more heavenly than my other super opaque pastels. This is only 2 coats!

Then after it dried, I put 2 layers of I Juggle Men on top. I LOVE this new polish from their Femme De Cirque set. Their pictures never really showed off what lies inside of the sheer clear aspect of it…

Look at this prettiness!!

The pink and blue shimmer is something you can see in the light or in the shade, so you can stare at it all day whether you’re inside or out.

I’m so bad, I actually bought two of the I Juggle Men. Just because I thought it would sell out quickly and I love it so much!
