Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Swatches and Review

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick is brand new to Sephora and comes in a mind-boggling 30 shades!

I nearly passed out when I first saw these on the Sephora website last week. I mean 30 shades!! And the studded cases! And it’s Kat Von D, and you know I have a *thing* for wanting practically everything she comes out with. Unfortunately (or maybe this is a good thing) when I was at Sephora recently they didn’t have more than 6 shades out on display, so I couldn’t check out the whole line. From the 6 I saw I decided to try out two in shades in L’ Ecole Des Femmes and Sexer.

These lipsticks have a color cushion technology that provides 10 hours of wear, a velvety touch and one-swipe color. They are formulated with vitamins A, E and C for hydration and antioxidants, and have a light creme brulee scent. They come in matte, metallic, iridescent and shimmery finishes. The studded black tubes were designed to look like one of Kat’s favorite bracelets.

Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! Swatches and Review

Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen!

The Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! collection features three beautiful new shades from three amazing bloggers.

We have a lovely shade called Undercover Mermaid from Michelle from Lab Muffin, a gorgeous green from Mary from Swatch and Learn and a mesmerizing pink from Kristy from The Polish Haven.

Here’s some info about each shade from the official press release.

Undercover Mermaid: Undercover Mermaid is a work safe polish with a secret – from a distance it’s all sophisticated purplely taupe, but up close you can’t miss the irrepressible blue-green sparkle.

Swatch and Learn: My nail polish is green to represent my favourite colour, and when you look at your nails at different angles and in various lighting, you’ll see other hues sparkle and dance like a dream. These surprising flashes represent my readers, who light up my life and amaze me every day.

Stuck In The Middle: Stuck In The Middle is a bright fuchsia jelly with iridescent glass fleck sparkle.

OPI Ford Mustang Collection Swatches and Review

OPI Ford Mustang Collection

The OPI Ford Mustang Collection celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang and introduces us to six new shades.

The collection is limited edition and available this month. Of course all the nail shades were inspired by the iconic Mustang and here are the official descriptions:

  • Race Red: The hero color of the collection, Race Red pays tribute to one of Mustang’s signature colors and brings to life the passion and excitement of the iconic car.
  • 50 Years of Style: Just like Mustang, celebrate all your milestones with this made-to-party golden pearl.
  • Queen of the Road: Inspired by Mustang’s dramatic and perfectly appointed cabin, a black interior evokes sophistication and will always be a classic – just like the little black dress.
  • Girls Love Ponies: A woman is multifaceted; this grown-up pink acts as a reminder of her femininity, even as she takes to the wheel of the powerful pony.
  • Angel with a Leadfoot: Drive up and say “halo” to this celestial white. Whether worn alone or as an accent, white is essential to a woman’s wardrobe and to making a statement.
  • The Sky’s My Limit: There is nothing like the freedom of the open road and shimmering, endless blue sky. This aqua hue awakens a woman’s sense of adventure and is a trend shade for summer going into the fall.

Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball

Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball

I’ve always been a sucker for anything vanilla scented and this new Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball has me seriously smitten.

The limited edition Fresh Vanilla Lemon collection includes this roller-ball, a deodorant, a body butter and a full-sized scent.

This is my first experience with anything from Lavanila (outside of playing with it at Sephora) and I am really happy I was able to try it. The roller-ball comes in a really nice square glass bottle.

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Wild Rose and Brazen Berry

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Wild Rose and Brazen Berry are two out of ten colors in this line.

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids

My interest in these became too hard to ignore when I saw these in the store recently. I literally wanted every single one but since I had never tried them I decided on just two. They have a “honey nectar” formula which helps make them super creamy and very hydrating. They have a really nice, light feel and slight shine. No scent or taste that I detected.
