Nail of the Day: Ciate Paint Pots!

Allow me to introduce to you the cutest nail polishes ever: Ciate Paint Pots. I recently received these from my friend Fleur as a birthday gift, and I am in love. Not only is the packaging to die for, the formulation is fantastic. I was pleasantly surprised with how evenly these applied and how glossy they were without a top coat (I did add one for the photo below though). Thanks Fleur! :)

MAC Semi Precious Collection: Mineralize Skinfinishes

MAC launched their new Semi Precious collection this week, making it this year's mineralize product launch. Every summer, MAC seems to launch a mineralize collection, and this year's included eyeshadows, blushes, brushes, and mineralize skinfinishes (among other things). I'm a huge MSF junkie, so whenever some limited ones are released I usually get sucked in. This collection was no exception.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow #47

Another find for me at IMATS LA this year was MUFE's #47 eyeshadow. This shade immediately caught my eye because of its finish; eyeshadows in this color are usually frosty, but this one is matte. When I saw this I instantly thought of an olive green eye look for this Autumn, so I had to have it. The pigmentation/blendability is excellent and the color is gorgeous.

These eyeshadows retail for $19 and can be purchased at

Would you wear it?

The New Pro Z-Palette

Z-Palette has released a third addition to their palette range, called the Pro Palette. The Pro Palette is exactly the same length as the Large Palette, but about 3/4" wider. This may seem like a frivolous adjustment for a whole new palette range, but as someone who has used Z Palettes for a while now, I can say that an extra 3/4" can make the difference between another row of something fitting or not.

OCC Loose Colour Pigments: Review & Swatches!

Today's featured product is another OCC favorite of mine: Loose Colour Pigments. OCC is known for having some of the most pigmented products around, so it's no surprise that these shadows pack a punch. I purchased my first OCC Loose Colour Pigment at IMATS NYC (the one without the sifter, because I've pressed it), and loved it enough to get two more at IMATS LA!
