Misa Sunny Side Up for Spring 2014

Misa Sunny Side Up

Spring has sprung and we have the Misa Sunny Side Up collection to help celebrate!

Spring means flowers blooming, bright colors popping and baby birds singing. This collection, all named after flowers, is a nice fresh look at the season. There are some shades here that might not be unique for a spring collection, but others are rather different and cool looking.

Misa has their formula down pat, as I have mentioned approximately 1,385,980 times in the past. It’s perfect. It’s creamy, shiny, self-leveling and covers in two coats.

OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats for Spring 2014

OPI Sheer Tints

A few days ago I reviewed the new OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats for spring 2014 here. As I mentioned in the post, these can be worn alone as a wash of color OR over other colors. Yes it even says so on the press release and on the bottles.

I think a lot of people didn’t like the way they looked on their own and wanted to see other options. I finally had some more time to play around with them so I decided to swatch them over a white – OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Now you can see a different side of them and what they can do.

Also I would like to point you to a couple of blog posts from people who are way more talented than I am so you can see some really cool ideas! Jackie from Candy Coated Tips has some great ideas as does Valesha from Peachy Polish and Carolina from Colores de Carolina.

Friday Question

Happy Friday everyone!

How did this week treat you? My week was pretty good. It poured rain the first few days of the week, which is fine because we really need it. But now the sun has come out, things are drying up, and I am happy!

Any hot weekend plans? I think me and Mr. VV are going to try and go to the Alameda Antiques Fair, which they hold on the first Sunday of every month. They have over 800 vendors, which seems mind-boggling! Maybe I’ll find some cool treasures.

So here’s my Friday question for ya.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches and Review

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow

Happy Thursday afternoon!

Today I have twelve more Makeup Geek Eyeshadow shades swatched for you. In case you haven’t yet gotten on the Makeup Geek train, you might want to reconsider. I have reviewed quite a few of their eyeshadows here, here, here and here and these are just as fabulous!

Makeup Geek shadows are extremely pigmented and soft. You can buy them like this, just in the pan to place in a Z Palette (or other type of palette), or in a compact. They are cruelty free, paraben free and talc free. The best part? They are very inexpensive and very high quality.

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux

Contrary Polish Love Lyrics Redux is the follow-up to the Love Lyrics collection from last spring.

Last time around the shades were named after favorite love-themed song titles. This time they are named after song lyrics. There are six shades in the collection and they are all jellies with shimmer and/or micro-glitter. Each one took three coats to become opaque.

These shades seem so perfect for spring to me, they’re very soft and feminine looking. They remind me of a light wash of pastel paint.
