Max Factor Fantasy Fire New Version & Old Version Comparison

Press Sample Back when I started blogging this blog was primarily suppose to be more about lipstick and shadows than nail polish (which is why it has the word Cosmetic in the name and not more of a polish themed name).  My stash of makeup was HUGE and my boyfriend said “You need to blog and do more with all of this!” and of course I’m stubborn and didn’t listen.  He pushed for 2 years before I FINALLY gave in in December of 2011. I didn’t realize back then how much work went into blogging makeup and at the end of a long work day, the last thing I wanted to do was remove all of my work makeup and put on more makeup for photos.  I already looked wrecked, my hair a mess and my eyes tired… so the outcome wouldn’t have been good anyways. Then I found a…

Bundle Monster Holographic Trio Set Swatches & Review

Press Sample The folks over at Bundle Monster sent me a holographic trio that was recently released on their site.  I was a little surprised because I’ve heard of Bundle Monster in relation to stamping products, but didn’t realize they had polish until now. This is a fairly simple but dazzling holographic trio.  It contains silver, blue and pink linear holographic polishes and the holographic in it is quite strong. Let’s take a look! Buy Me Diamonds Buy Me Diamonds is a strong silver linear holographic.  The first coat seemed on the sheerer side but it did build up really nicely.  Shown is 2 coats and a top coat. Call You Maybe Call Me Maybe is a strong rosy pink linear holographic.  I used 2 thin coats for these photos. Blue Me Away Blue Me Away is a strong vibrant blue linear holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos and…

China Glaze Summer 2015 Electric Nights Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample Ready for more neons?  Good, because today I have the China Glaze Electric Nights collection for Summer 2015 to show you!  This is a wonderful collection of 9 neon shades plus 3 incredibly fun neon glitter toppers. I have several China Glaze neons from over the years and before I start I will say that this collection has a much smoother formula than previous neon/bright collections that they’ve put out which thrilled me to no end. Let’s get started! Can I Get An Untz Untz Can I Get An Untz Untz surprised me a bit and turned out to be my favorite of the 3 glitters.  From the bottle it looks like a primarily green glitter top coat with some purple sprinkled in, but when I put it on it was a nice mix of neon green and neon aqua hex glitters with a nice mix of neon…

Salon Perfect Spring 2015 Pastels Swatches & Review

Press Sample I’ve been showing neons on social media, but lets tone it down a little with some pastels!  Salon Perfect has released a set of 6 pastels for Spring that are available exclusively in Walmart. *Edited to add* I have gotten some messages and comments that some readers cannot find these shades.  These are part of the new core line so they aren’t seasonal or limited edition!  So be patient and you should be able to grab them for awhile. Let’s take a look at all 6 shades! Cold As Ice Cold As Ice is a pastel powder blue creme.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  Formula was perfect. Put A Ring On It Put A Ring On It is a pastel pink creme. The formula on Put A Ring On It was thinner than others in the collection, but built up nicely. This is 3 thin…

JulieG Candy Shoppe Colors Collection Swatches & Review

Purchased by Me Happy Sunday!  It’s my one day off this week so I’m trying to get a lot done.  I am trying to show more of my purchases while blogging, so that’s what I’m doing today! I recently started hearing about the JulieG Candy Shoppe Colors collection and was intrigued by their “jelly bean finish”.  What is a jelly bean finish?  Basically they are matte jelly polishes which do look like the finish on a jelly bean. I bought all 9 shades and went through them last night.  There were definitely some hits and some misses within the collection for me personally. Let’s go through each shade! Wild Cherry Wild Cherry is a bright orange toned red matte jelly.  I used 2 coats for these photos and application was perfect. Pixi Stick Pixi Stick is a bright pink matte jelly.  I used 2 coats for these photos and application…
