I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) - Masquerade Review & Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

I have a new I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) shade to share with you today, and dare I say, it just might be the new favourite of my entire polish collection! That's no small feat considering I own about 400 polishes...but it's hard not to love a polish with more moods than I have!

This is another holographic polish, just like Bishop (H) which I shared with you last week. This one is a lot more intense than Bishop (H), though, as it shifts between pink, violet, purple, copper, gold and forest green. Consider yourself warned, because this is going to be a very photo-heavy post as I attempt to do this gorgeous polish justice!

Limited Edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence Lip Set Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

Remember how I picked up the limited edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence set in Part 1 of my birthday haul? Here are my thoughts on this gorgeous little gift set, just in time for the Friends & Family sale over on the Tarte website (US-Based, so you might need to use a parcel forwarding company if you're outside of the US), but more on that later. Isn't the box gorgeous? I admit that I'm having a hard time throwing it out.

Limited Edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence Lip Set.
Limited Edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence Lip Set. 

This set contains:

4 deluxe LipSurgence lip tints in Dreamy (raspberry), Alluring (nude mauve), Innocent (beige nude) and Dainty (pale pink).
2 deluxe LipSurgence matte lip tints in Eternal (pink nude) and Fancy (plum berry).
2 deluxe LipSurgence lipglosses in Kiss (light pink) and Belle (raspberry).

For some reason, the Alluring LipSurgence in my set has the word matte on it, though it's definitely not a matte lip colour, as you'll see from the swatches later.

I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) - Bishop (H) Review & Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

Wow, it has been ages since my last polish post, which is crazy because I've always got polish on! Where has the time gone, this year has simply flown by!

I wanted to share a simple manicure with you, and that's a gorgeous duochrome polish from I Love Nail Polish, one of my favourite indie polish stores. Barbara, the owner of ILNP, is based in the States, so shipping can be a little on the expensive side, but her polishes are truly gorgeous and completely worth it. I've got about twenty of her polishes, I think, and almost all are holographics.

Bishop (H) is the holographic version of an earlier polish (Bishop) that she released. Bishop (H) is a pale olive green shade that tends towards gold with the right lighting. These polishes don't require a base polish to truly pop, and you can also see tiny holographic particles suspended in the polish even when it's dry.

Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection Review & Swatches!

Hi lovelies!

I've got a product review to share today on a Christmas set I picked up in part 1 of my birthday haul. I love cream shadows and shadow pencils as they make great eye makeup bases, and are also a great option when you're pressed for time as you just need a swipe across your lids and you're ready to go. All of these are why I couldn't resist getting the Laura Mercier mini caviar stick eye colour collection.

 Laura Mercier mini caviar stick eye colour collection.

This collection includes six cream eyeshadow pencils in Khaki (dirty green), Moonlight (pewter), Cocoa (chocolate brown), Amethyst (mauve brown), Copper (metallic bronze) and Rosegold (dusky pink gold). Moonlight, Amethst, Copper and Rosegold are quite metallic and shimmery, while Khaki and Cocoa are almost matte in appearance, with just a slight amount of sheen. Each cream shadow is packaged in a handy twist up crayon, which eliminates the need for sharpening.
