Maybelline Color Show Limited Edition Fall 2014 Plum As You Are

  Hi all!!  Back in fall of 2012, I passed up on Maybelline's Downtown Brown so many times I lost count and lived to regret not picking up the limited edition duochrome shimmer (and at Maybelline's price point, I really had no excuse).  Not too keen on letting that happen again, I snagged one of the more interesting LE offerings for this fall, a dark grey with violet shimmer called Plum As You Are before I had time to talk myself out of it.

piCture pOlish Eyre

*press sample

  Happy Caturday, all!!  Picture Polish is one of the more prolific indie companies around and one that I've become familiar with through Christine at Polished Marvels.  In fact, if you're looking for an extensive Picture Polish swatch gallery, hers is fantastic, boasting 65 posts (including some art, all shown {HERE}).  For my part, I'm excited to finally be trying a polish from what I feel safe in assuming is one of my friend's favorite brands.

  This is Eyre, a blue violet metallic scattered holo.

Essie Dress To Kilt

  Hi everyone!!  I got REALLY EXCITED about all the fall collections the other day and indulged and bought myself a polish from Essie, a brand I don't pay a lot of attention to (I'm pretty sure I say that every time I post one of theirs).  Essie collections are always fun to look at in their entirety, but hard to choose one individual color, somehow.  This time, my choice was an easy one-- I went with the namesake polish of this fall's lineup, called Dress To Kilt.

Zoya Ignite-- Fall 2014

Zoya Ignite swatches and review
Zoya Ignite collection, Fall 2014
  Hi all!!  I'm back from my self-imposed break a week early because when you've got gorgeousness like the Zoya Ignite collection staring at you every time you walk into your living room, it's extremely hard to resist wanting to wear those suckers right away (and talk about them, lol).  So I'm not fully used to my nubs again/yet but the fact is, there is not a shape these colors won't look spectacular on.

  Zoya describes the finishes in this set as liquid metal, but they're unlike any metallic I've ever seen.  These all have a sort of metallic-jelly hybrid finish, going on sheer with the first coat but balancing out perfectly with two, and each with an abundance of golden and shade-specific glassfleck-like shimmer.  There's so much sparkle in these that my camera had the worst time focusing.  These shades are stunning.  Let's get started.
