Lime Crime Rhyme and Reason Uniliner swatches

I got in the Lime Crime uniliners from the flash sale last week. They are currently unavailable right now, but the website says they will be for sale again individually on November 23.

Rhyme and Reason are gold and silver glitter liquid eyeliners. Unlike the last unliners, they are not that unique and I wouldn't really consider them a must have if you already have gold and silver liquid liners. They are reasonably priced at $13.99 so, if you are looking for gold and silver, they may be an option. Personally, while I really like the other uniliners, I don't think these two are the best Lime Crime products.

Urban Decay Vice Palette swatches

I had actually planned to skip The Vice Palette but it was included in Urban Decay's friends and family sale. I just couldn't resist getting it 20% off, so I ended up getting it.

My favorite colors in this palette are Blitz and Unhinged. I also really like Echo Beach. The ones I like the least are the chunky glitter ones (Provocateur and Jagged).

Lime Crime Alchemy Collection swatches

Lime Crime released their Alchemy Collection this month and I just got it in. If you order the collection before the end of October, it's $49.99 which is basically getting one of the lipsticks free.

Loreal Project Runway The Mystic's Kiss lipstick swatch

The Mystic's Kiss was the only lipstick I got out of this collection. I wanted it because it was purple. I'm pretty disappointed in it, though. The color isn't the purple that it looks. It's more of a pinky purple and a lot less unusual.

Loreal Project Runway The Temptress' Gaze quad swatches

The Temptress' Gaze is probably my favorite overall quad, just for the colors. I like that it has a matte brown.

Loreal Project Runway The Muse's Gaze quad swatches

While I think that The Mystic's Gaze quad is the overall worst, The Muse's Gaze has the single worst eye shadow. The coral color was the eye shadow that had the worst pigment of all the other colors in all four quads. The other colors, however, are nice. I especially like the light blue.

Loreal Project Runway The Mystic's Gaze quad swatches

The Mystic's Gaze from the Colors Take Flight Collection has to be the overall worst of the four quad. Honestly, the darkest one is the only color that is really pigmented (and it's pretty with blue sparkles). All the others just aren't as good as they look in the pan.

Loreal Project Runway The Queen's Gaze quad swatches

The Queen's Gaze is one of the four quads available in the Project Runway Colors Take Flight collection. I hunted all over for these but ended up ordering them from Of course, after I ordered them, all the Walgreens around here got them.

I thought this quad was nice. There wasn't a color that was poorly pigmented in it. If want a good smokey eye quad, this is a good one.

e.l.f. Disney Villains Cruella set swatches

This is the third of the Disney Villains set (See the Maleficent and Evil Queen set swatches).

I have to say that I'm disappointed in these sets. I didn't really think one stood out as great or that one was worse than the others... they were basically the same in quality. The eye shadows are actually better quality than a lot of the elf sets like the beauty books, but there are only 8. The liquid liner, especially the brush, is just not good in any set. The lip/cheek pencils are kind of worthless. If you just want to line your lips, they are fine. If you'd also want to fill in your lips before putting on lipstick, then these are really too dry for that. As far as the claim that they can be used as cheek color... well that just didn't happen. When I tried to blend it on my cheeks, it just rubbed away.

If these sets were $5, like similarly sized elf sets, then maybe it'd still be a good value. There are $9.99, though, which I guess is just because of the Disney name. So, unless you love Disney enough to buy all things Disney, then I don't think these are must haves. The eye shadows, while pretty good, are not unique.

e.l.f. Disney Villains Malefincent set swatches

e.l.f. released 3 Disney Villains sets that are exclusive to Walgreens. They are $9.99 each, which is actually on the high side for e.l.f. products. Truthfully, unless you just love to have Disney stuff, I don't know if I'd really say these are a must have. The eye shadows are a better quality than a lot of e.l.f. sets, however I wasn't impressed with the lip liner/cheek color pencils or the liquid eyeliner. I just can't even imagine how the tiny pencil can be used effectively as a cheek color.

e.l.f. Zit Eraser Review

I bought a bunch of elf stuff a while ago. One of the things that I wanted to get was the Zit Eraser. It's only $3 and that's much cheaper than any of the ones that I've bought from the drugstore.

September Likes and Dislikes

I actually only have one like and one dislike for September.


I was lazy one day and did not feel like finding my Benefit Boi-ing concealer, so I grabbed this one. It's got really good heavy coverage that's good for redness. While the color wasn't as good as the Benefit one, it was still good. There are only 4 color options, though. It's also $2.


Time Balm White Tea Cucumber Face Toner
I bought this at TJ Maxx a while ago. When I ran out of my Lush toner, I started using this one. It was the only new thing I added and, in fact, it was one of the only things I was putting on my face for about 2 months because I didn't wear much makeup this summer. I broke out pretty heavily. After I quit this toner for a week, my face started clearing up.
