Orly Cool Romance for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

Orly Cool Romance is a new spring collection featuring six new shades.

Don’t expect mega color in your face with this collection. Think of the words soft, subtle, understated, feminine and pretty.

The formula with most of these was really good, but thin. Most are fairly sheer, so you will need three coats for complete coverage.

Milani Powder Eyeshadow for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

Deborah Lippmann Nails Of Steel Magnetic Wave Nail Lacquer Set Swatches & Review

Deborah Lippmann Magnetic Wave

New this spring from Deborah Lippmann are Magnet Nail Lacquer Sets.

There are two sets, each one featuring two magnetic nail lacquers and a wave magnet pattern.

Nails Of Steel features Big Red Machine and Physical Attraction. Steal My Kisses includes Berry Metal and Love Is A Battlefield.

I have to say, these are the best magnetic polishes I have tried to date. The magnet works IMMEDIATELY and in a really crisp nice pattern. Some I have tried were a little blurry or took long to “process”. These were pretty much perfection.
