Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Body Butter

Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Body Butter is as tasty wonderful as it sounds.

Remember back in July when I reviewed their Roller-ball in this same scent? This has that same amazingly delicious and yet refreshing vanilla lemon smell that I just can’t get enough of.

Colors by Llarowe I Love Candy Corn Trio

The Colors by Llarowe I Love Candy Corn Trio for Halloween 2014 has arrived!

This limited edition collection features three new shades. Two have a holographic shimmery finish and one is a deep shimmer with copper glitter. The formula was pretty good with all three of these, though the two holo ones are a little on the sheer side.

NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish Swatches and Review

NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish

There are three beautiful new shades in the NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish collection, which comes out today.

These don’t come in any ordinary NARS polish bottles though. The custom design on them is by architectural designer Chris Kabatsi. The print is a digitally-rendered Nebula print. The web-like black gloss on the front is his modern take on lace, and the bottle caps, which come off, have a soft, velvety feel.

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer Review

NYX Honey Dew Me Up

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer is a new primer on the scene that’s pretty different from the average silicone primer.

For me this doesn’t really seem like a primer – it’s more of a serum. It has a very gel-like liquidy texture, and comes in a bottle with a spatula applicator. A pump would have been much better and easier, I think. It does contain the natural antiseptic honey, as well as gold flakes, which are supposed to increase skin radiance and collagen, for smoother skin.

Gimmicky perhaps? Perhaps.

Blackheart Beauty Nail Polish Swatches

Blackheart Beauty Nail Polish

Back in the day when I was a teen, I would have KILLED for a store like Hot Topic at the mall. You see, for us poor children of the 80’s, there was no such cool store around these here parts unless you went to Telegraph Avenue, which I often did. Hot Topic would have been my mecca.

When I was there recently, I came across Blackheart Beauty Nail Polish and nearly had a heart attack when I saw how cool the bottles were. I mean skulls. SKULLS! Does nail polish come in a cooler bottle shape? Nope. I had a hard time picking which ones to try out, there are so many colors and finishes. After juggling about ten different ones I put some back, decided to control myself somewhat, and choose just five.

SKULLS!

Oh, and I’ve been told these are made with all sorts of delicious chemicals, so don’t eat them. ;)
