Jessie's Girl~ Gumdrops!

Jesse's Girl has a new set of polishes as part of the Julie G line called The Frosted Gumdrop Collection. I'm sure you have seen all the new texturized polishes that have been popping up all over.
As soon as I saw the promo pics I knew I had to have them!

OPI has some textured polishes as well as China Glaze, Orly & Zoya.
As far as price, these are by far the most affordable. I paid $20 for the set of 6. But right now they are on sale for $12.99 here-> Groupon Gumdrop Sale! Thats an amazing deal but its only good until 4/14/13!!!

My bottles did not come with any names on them for identification. But on their facebook page I found the names. Here they are from Left to Right: Blueberry Fizz, Hot Cinnamon, Rock Candy, Tangerine Dream, Crushed Candy, Sugar Rush.

This  is called Crushed Candy. Its so super cute. This pic is a 3 day old mani! No base coat & no top coat. Zero chips after 3 days.
I have been checking out online swatches of the different brands of textured polish & these are very unique. Other than the bumpy texture, these have glitter. Who doesn 't love to sparkle? :) I used 2 coats and was extremely happy. This is the only one I've tried so far & I'm 100% happy!!! These will be my go-to's for the summer. I bet they wil be amazing for a pedi!

Wet n Wild- Fergie Collection ~ Red & Black

 Today I walked into Walgreens & saw the new Fergie Collection...Untouched. :) I seriously just started grabbing stuff. All the lipsticks and 1 highlighting powder & 1 eyeshadow palette. The lipsticks were great! All of them! They eyeshadow was ok. Here are my thoughts on some of them.
More to come in a different post.

Old School Glam Lipstick- Super creamy & bright red. Blue undertones almost going towards pink.
Applied straight from the tube, no lipliner.

Pagan Angel Lipstick- Awesome Black! & no weird smell like some black lipsticks have.
Applied straight from the tube, no lipliner.

Metropolitan Nights Eyeshadow Palette- This was just ok. I couldn't get the black to get really black, it kind of always stayed a dark dark grey. The khaki gold looking color completely disappeared on me. It had 0 pigmentation. It swatched ok on my hand but was invisible on my eyelid. The white was vey chalky. The bright yellow color was basically pressed gold glitter which I really liked. It had no actual pigment to give it color but I swept it over my whole lid with a fluffy brush and loved the twinkling glitter effect!
For under $5 it was worth it just for that golden glitter.

Low n Slow...

I recently watched one of my fave animated movies- Cars! My fave character is Ramone because he changes his paint job like I change my nail polish! His "Original" look is the best tho :)
Here's my take on it...

I used NYX JUMBO PENCIL in Black Bean as a base for the purple then elf eyeshadow primer for the rest. It's only $1 and works great on my oily eyelids. The purple & red & orange is from my Ebay 120 palette & the yellow is Sugarpill Buttercupcake.

A girl at the grocery store said my eyes looked like the sunset...I'll take that!!!

HoneyXO Review

Review Time.... HoneyXO
I was sent this package for review. There were 5 eyeshadow samples in baggies packaged together in a cute gold mesh bag. I hate hate hate having to dig shadow out of a baggie but these were pretty generously sized. At first glance, al the colors looked pretty pigmented. They are also colors I would wear in Autumn. Not now.

First Impressions...

Swatched on my daughter's hard. Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
Forest Love, Royal Kingdom, Chantilly
Trax & Glass Slipper

Forest Love ~ Dark green with pretty sparkles
Royal Kingdom ~ Medium super shimmer burgundy
Chantilly ~ Matte mustard yellow
Trax ~ Dark black with sparkles
Glass Slipper ~ Matte blue grey
Forest Love & Trax

Royal Kingdom & Chantilly

Royal Kingdom & Glass Slipper
So unfortunately these colors did not work well at all. They all swatched beautifully but once I put them on my face the completely changed. I used Sugarpill Tako for blending and the more I blended, the darker all the colors became. The only color that remained unchanged was Chantilly.

In the top photo I stated adding Forest love and it was just showing up grey. The more I blended, the darker it got. I added Trax and as soon as I started blending all the sparkles disappeared.
In the center photo I started out with Royal Kingdom and it also turned grayish. As you can see in the pic there is hardly any red or pink at all showing up.
The last pic was the worst. Glass Slipper which swatched as a bluish grey instantly turned almost black. I tried blending in some Royal Kingdom and that just made it even muddier.
Unfortunately these eyeshadows were just not good for me at all. I have seen other pics of this brand and the colors look fresh and bright. I don't know what went wrong. Formula? Color choices?
