Wet n Wild LA Street Wear Matte Nail Collection for Fall 2014

Wet n Wild LA Street Wear Matte Nail Collection for Fall 2014

The Wet n Wild LA Street Wear Matte Nail Collection for fall 2014 is comprised of six new matte finished nail colors.

You can tell the finish of these by the bottle cap, which is a matte black kind of grippy texture. I actually like this because it makes the bottles easier to open. These have their wide “ManiCurve Pro Brush” which I am not all that fond of. For some of my nails it’s just too wide, and I wind up making a mess. As far as the matte finish, they are matte, but they remind me more of the rubber-like finishes we have seen from Illamasqua or the wax finish from Cult Nails. They aren’t completely flat or a chalky type of matte.

Too Faced La Belle Carousel for Holiday 2014

Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of La Belle Carousel for holiday 2014 is quite a unique gift. I’ve never seen anything like it!

This is an actual carousel of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers and a mascara. It comes in the cutest packaging! There is an outside box, which opens up from the top and you slide out the actual makeup carousel part, which has a pink glitter top and bottom. If you take off the top, you then see six mini makeup kits in a little slot in the bottom. So cool. And in case you wondered this glitter stays in place and doesn’t flake off at all.

Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Everything Nice for Holiday 2014

Too Faced Everything Nice for Holiday 2014

The Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Everything Nice set for holiday 2014 is packed with pretties and I’ve got the details and swatches for you now.

Everything Nice, which is a Sephora exclusive, is the largest of the holiday items this year. Inside the palette are twenty eyeshadows, including some exclusive ones. Also you’ll find 2 bronzers, 2 blushes, 3 mini Teddy Bear Hair makeup brushes with gold glittery handles, a deluxe-size Better Than Sex Mascara, a step-by-step guide and a glittery pink zip bag.

The glitter on the bag is only one one side (the other side is a bright pink metallic texture with a gold “Too Faced” logo) and it is larger sized glitter pieces than the Sugar & Spice bag. This glitter is slightly more prone to shed bits around, but it’s not really easy to get it off. Also if you used it as a bag say for a night out, and were wearing something that could snag, you might not want to have the glittery side against your clothing.

Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Sugar & Spice for Holiday 2014

Too Faced Sugar & Spice for Holiday 2014

The Too Faced What Pretty Girls Are Made Of Sugar & Spice set for holiday 2014 sure is a beauty.

This holiday set, which is exclusive to Ulta, comes in a glittery gold clutch. Inside the clutch you will find a glittery gold palette featuring twelve eye shadows and a mirror, as well as deluxe-size Better Than Sex Mascara.

You might be wondering about all this glitter and if it’s messy. The answer is no. The gold glitter both on the clutch and palette is super fine and doesn’t come off at all. I even scratched them to see if any would come off and it didn’t. It’s not a completely smooth surface, but not super rough either, so it won’t catch on anything and snag it.
