Contrary Polish Book Nerd Collection for Fall 2014

Contrary Polish Book Nerd Collection

The Contrary Polish Book Nerd Collection for Fall 2014 is themed around favorite book genres of the creator of Contrary Polish. Such a cool idea!

This collection features six new shades and a one new finish for the brand – a holo! The genres are Horror, Humor, Mystery, Memoir, Gothic Fiction and Urban Fantasy.

The formula is good with all of these, though I do usually need three thin coats with Contrary Polish to get the best coverage on my nails since they usually have a jelly formula. There are some real beauties here, so check ‘em out.

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014 Swatches & Review

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014

MAC Heirloom Mix for Holiday 2014 has arrived at VV headquarters and she sure is a pretty collection!

The holiday collection in its entirety consists of some basic pieces in the Heirloom Mix collection, which I have here, a Keepsakes collection and and Objects of Affection collection. I’ll have those other two for you soon but today I wanna focus on the beautiful basics of Heirloom Mix.

The packaging is quite cool. The boxes and the actual product cases are shiny black with silver glitter. It’s not loose glitter though, it’s incorporated into the plastic so no need to worry about it shedding off. This collection includes five Lipsticks, five Cremesheen Glasses, eight Pressed Pigments, two Fluidlines, two Glitters, one Kohl Power Eye Pencil, one Eye Kohl, two Mineralize Blushes and three Nail Lacquers.

Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection

Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection

The Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection has so many stunning shades I don’t even know where to begin!

This is a rather huge collection featuring eighteen new shades in various finishes. I fell in love with about 90% of these shades, so be prepared for some gushing. The formula with most of these is so damn good. They are incredibly smooth, creamy and opaque. I swear I am going to put that statement on my tombstone, I feel like I write it so much. Most of these were two coats with a couple being three.

Yay Leah Ann for making such great shades for us to enjoy all the time!
