Black Radiance Eye Appeal shadow collection Downtown Browns swatches

I almost never go down the cosmetics aisle at the grocery store but I was using it as a shortcut to the registers and found this palette by Black Radiance. At first I thought it was Wet n Wild because the palette looked very similar to their 8 pan palettes. It was a little more than the Wet n Wild palettes at $6.99 and the quality is very similar.

e.l.f. Metal Madness nail polish swatch

I got this in the mystery bag. e.l.f. is pretty hit or miss for me but I have to say that I like the e.l.f. nail polish.

Lime Crime Sale!

Lime Crime's Magic Dusts are being discontinued and they are now 40% off with code MAGIC40.

I've swatched the ones that I have before, so I'll link them below.

Diva, Medusa, Cupcake Thief, Abracadabra
Circus Girl, Siren
Lime Criminal, Mischief Managed

Wet n Wild Magnetic nail polish swatch

I bought one of the new Wet n Wild magnetic nail polishes. I find the magnetic polishes very frustrating because the ones I've tried (this and one other cheap drugstore brand) just have not worked. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, though I am following directions, or maybe it's because they are cheap, but I can't get them to work well.

JulieG nail polish swatches

I got some of the JulieG nail polishes from Rite Aid. They are put out by Jesse's Girl and they have plenty on their website if you don't have a Rite Aid near you.

My Private Palace, Kickin' It, Shimmer Island, Gelato in Venice, Metallic Heals

Butter London Commemorative Olympic Heavy Metal Collection swatches

I finally broke down and bought something from Butter London. It kind of hurts to spend that much on nail polish, but I look every time I'm in Ulta. I chose this set because it was $36, so the polishes were a little cheaper than normal ($14 each). I'm actually glad I did. While I was swatching these, I was also doing drugstore polishes and I could really tell the difference between these and drugstore ones. I'm in love with the silver polish.

NYC Summer in the City swatches

I only got a few things from the NYC Summer in the City collection. The nail polishes in this collection are so pretty.

Rainbow Honey Equestria Collection nail polish swatches

I'm not even sure where I heard about this company, but I first looked into Rainbow Honey because they were doing a nail polish collection based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which I love. The Equestria collection has 8 polishes that come in 15ml and 7ml options. I chose to get the 7ml ones, partly because I have never made it through a full-sized nail polish and partly because they were cheaper. I got all 8 for $35. The 15ml set is $70. Shipping was a little slow. It took about 2 weeks to get them.

e.l.f. haul

I got this box in about a week ago, but just now got to open it and take the pictures. Most of what I ordered was not actual makeup, but there was a code for a free $20 mystery bag that had some.

L.A. Colors Private Eye palette swatches

I got this L.A. Colors palette at Rite Aid. There was another one as well, but most of the colors looked the same so I just picked one. I think they were $3.99, which isn't bad for 24 eye shadows and the colors are pretty decent.

Sinful Colors Study in Style Leap Flog swatch and Forget Now dupe

I saw the Sinful Colors Study in Style display in Walgreens while I was looking for other things. From what I've read, Leap Flog is the only new color in this display. At this point I don't have a complete list of the Sinful Colors polishes I have and didn't want to buy one I already have like I did with the Glitter Glam stuff, so I only got Leap Flog. While I was looking, though, I did see one that I think is a good dupe for an OPI one.

Wet n Wild Fergie nail polish swatches

I found the new Wet n Wild Fergie nail polishes at Walgreens. There are some really pretty colors, especially the more unusual glitters. A few were more basic solids. I hope these are around for a while so I can get more. They are $3.49, which is not bad but not the cheapest Wet n Wild nail polishes, and there are quite a few of these. I got the ones I liked the most on this trip, but would like to get more if they are still there.

Loreal Colour Riche lipstick swatches

Rite Aid had the Loreal  Colour Riche lipsticks on 75% off clearance so I got two of them. I have never tried one of these before, but they were $2.49 instead of $9.99.

Hello Kitty Hello Pretty palette swatches

I've skipped a lot of these Hello Kitty palettes because I bought the ones that were released when this line launched and they were awful. I was in Sephora, though, and was drawn in by the pink rubbery-feeling palette. I wasn't going to buy it just because of that so I swatched all the colors in the store before deciding that it was much better quality than these palettes used to be.

Lime Crime Aquataenia palette swatches

Lime Crime has a new palette. This one, Aquataenia, is inspired by mermaids. Unlike the other palettes, this one has all shimmery shades.

The package came with a sticker and a sample of the eyeshadow primer.

Blackheart Beauty Stealth eyeshadow primer review

I bought the Blackheart Beauty Stealth eyeshadow primer a few weeks ago. It's only $5 and that's a really good deal, especially if it works, so I tested it out to see how well it did compared to Too Faced Shadow Insurance. On one eye, I used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and on the other I used the Blackheart Beauty Stealth primer.

CoverGirl Eye Enchancers quad in Prima Donna swatches

The Prima Donna quad is probably the best quad as far as pigmentation goes.

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers quad in Fairytale swatches

The Fairytale quad was not the worst, but not the best. The purple is not very pigmented, which is not unusual for a lot of purples. The other three are good, but the middle two are light colors so they don't show up well on me.

Urban Decay YDK swatches and depoting the new eyeshadows

I finally managed to find YDK, which was always sold out when I went to Ulta. I also figured out that it's really easy to depot these shadows for the Build Your Own Palette... I was completely wrong and they can just pop out. When I was depotting shadows, I used a knife to pull out the first one and realized that the bottom of the pot isn't there.

Jesse's Girl Glow Stix lip gloss swatches

I got the lip glosses from the Jesse's Girl Rock Star collection recently. They are really sheer... I was hoping they'd have a little more color. They also have artificial fruit smells that correspond with the colors- purple smells like grape, orange smells like orange and pink smells like strawberry- so if you hate them then these probably would be something to skip.
