Hard Candy Meteor-Eyes Baked Eyeshadow in Supernova

I went to Walmart a while back and got excited since it was the first time seeing Hard Candy anywhere. I picked up Supernova (274) to try something from the brand and mildly regret it now. It's unfortunate that it's rather worthless if you'd like to use it dry because it looks so pretty in the pan.

Shot of the Day

ManGlaze Mink Mitten

Mink Mitten is a color from the new FAiL Collection ManGlaze released about a month ago. It's become my favorite matte nail polish ever, and I don't proclaim that lightly. The label art will be changing from this plastic stickered version I have, so you probably won't be seeing this exact one if you decide to pick it up. And if you're going to shop, don't forget to do it through their facebook for 10% off.

Little Wing False Lashes from Urban Decay

Urban Lash falsies from Urban Decay go for 15$ a pair. It's a little pricey, but their lashes are well-made, durable, and come with great lash glue. Other lashes I have include Instaglam Technicolor and HBIC, but I've only tried the latter of those two as of yet.

Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box

This palette is an older release and I haven't seen it around other than on eBay. It comes with six lovely eyeshadow shades from Urban Decay along with a mini eyeliner in Zero and a mini genie bottle of primer.

CZ Crown & Swarovski Pearl Studs from He Qi Crystal Designs

I'm not particularly big on pearl jewelry, but these studs from HQCD have changed my mind. They're simple enough to be worn everyday yet adds a nice, elegant touch if you're dressed up.

Shot of the Day featuring PAPERSELF Deer & Butterfly Eyelashes

I have a pair of the ever suddenly popular lashes by PAPERSELF. It is suggested to only use these paper lashes once and I haven't quite figured out how to incorporate them with a look yet.

Network Plugs

Hey everyone! I recently made a facebook page to try and expose the blog by tagging brands on there as well. Please 'like' the page if you are so inclined. ʕ◜∸ᴥ∸◝ʔ In light of creating that page, I thought I'd share other networks I use and encourage you to plug yours as well! I find it really annoying when people link to their sites in comments and particularly tell me to follow them, so here's a post that's just for you to self-promote without feeling spammy.

Tell me a little about yourself and share the link love~! Whatever platform you may be on, I will check it out if you link it here. Lurkers especially, I welcome you to come out of your shy turtle shells!

Too Faced Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection

The Sweet Dreams palette really adds to my love for the holiday palettes Too Faced releases. The Enchanted Glamourland palette from last year was also a great value and I think this one actually trumps it. Although it is slightly more expensive, the palette overall is absolutely lovely. The fifteen eyeshadows that are included are both matte and shimmery which are pigmented and easy to work with alongside the four face products. Currently out of stock, it is 52$ exclusively at Sephora.

If you watch the video, I show the packaging, the palette itself, swatches, along with a few comparisons to other Too Faced products I own. Check the jump for lots of photos!

OPI Crown Me Already

Crown Me Already! by OPI is an older release that I got last month for about 8$ on Amazon. It's thicker than your average nail polish since it's mainly just silver glitter, but there are varying sizes suspended in the gel-like base.
