Plum Tree

So there is this plum tree in my neighbors yard that hangs quite a bit over our yard. It’s been awhile since it gave off plums but WOW is it ever plentiful this year!

Zoya Gaia and Bekka Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Zoya Gaia and Bekka

Zoya Gaia and Bekka are two lacquers I have had for a really long time but just got around to trying out for the first time. I believe I got these a year or 18 months ago when I did my Zoya exchange. Dang time flies!

MAC Heavenly Creature Collection Swatches, Photos & Review

MAC Heavenly Creature

The new limited edition MAC Heavenly Creature collection will take you on a trip to another galaxy.

This collection which is comprised of Mineralize Eye Shadows, Skinfinishes and Blushes, among other items, is almost too pretty to actually use! Everything looks so artistic and cool that I was really loathe to dip my fingers into the compacts.

But it had to be done.

Alongside the Mineralize items, this collection features Cremesheen Glasses, Lipsticks and a skincare line featuring my favorite of ALL TIME face exfoliator: the iconic Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. I am telling you (and I’ve said this before on Twitter) if they made a Volcanic Ash scent, I would SO buy it. I’m addicted to that smell.

BB Couture Rhythm & Blues Collection Swatches & Review – Part II

Love blue nail polish? Then you may love the new BB Couture Rhythm & Blues collection, or rather the “Blues” part. :) Blues features six new blue nail polish shades in various finishes.

There is surely a blue in here with your name on it since we have light, medium, dark and even a blurple thrown in for good measure. 😉

Most of these were two-coaters, a couple were three though. The formula overall was a bit better than the Rhythm collection, I think mainly because there aren’t any pastel cremes, which can be tricky.
