Just a Little Something I’m Spray Painting…

In case you hadn’t heard (on Twitter) I am working on a complete home office overhaul, and am re-purposing a bunch of things. One item I found was this cast iron frog with a crown. I found it at Goodwill for 9 bucks! This baby is gonna get a fresh coat (or three) of paint and feel like a new man…or frog…

a England The Legends Collection Swatches & Review

a England has a new collection out called The Legends that includes seven new colors. I don’t know about you but I am super excited about them!

This collection was inspired by the tale of Saint George and the Dragon.

The colors include:

  • Saint George – Teal holographic
  • Dragon – Green holographic
  • Princess Sabra – Gold holographic
  • Order of the Garter – Royal blue glass fleck
  • Bridal Veil – Black holographic
  • Ascalon – Grey holographic
  • Princess Tears – Lilac/grey holographic

The formula with all of the ones I tried was most excellent. They are buttery, smooth, so easy to apply and perfect in just two coats. They’re very holographic and shiny as well. Just perfection!

Question of the Week: – What is your most beloved makeup item in your collection, and if someone offered you $100 for it would you sell it to them?

Answer: Possibly my MAC Sinful Serpent nail polish which I got when it came out in the 90’s. I would probably sell for $100 though, nothing I have is worth more than that!

Pink Sith – combines Six Sigma and Eyeshadow? See how she works in the business management strategy when she tells you all about Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halcyon Eyeshadow.

Tarte Maracuja Blush & Glow Highlighting Luminizer and Cheek Tint for Spring 2012

Tarte Maracuja Blush  Glow

Ready for some more super cute and cool new spring products from Tarte?

Maracuja Blush & Glow Highlighting Luminizer and Cheek Tints come in three colors and are a two-in-one cheek products. Obviously.

They come in a tube that contains the luminizer inside it, and the cheek tint in a little capsule that screws into the lid.

Sidenote: A few people mentioned recently that my makeup swatches weren’t very good. While that didn’t thrill me to hear, I did take it to heart and am trying to improve the lighting situation and see what works best. It’s tricky because I use a lightbox since my house is extremely dark and outside lighting isn’t reliable. I hope that the swatches below are a bit better (less grey/dark perhaps?) and would like to know your (kind and helpful) thoughts. Also someone mentioned she liked the product photos but wanted to see more swatches. So I broke them each down by color and then did them all together. Hopefully this is helpful!
