Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Holiday 2012 Preview

Sephora has a new, exclusive, Cinderella-themed beauty collection for Holiday 2012- have you seen it?  It's so cute and magical-looking, I'm not even a Disney fan and I had to have it.  I'm going to swatch everything eventually, but I figured I'd post a preview of some of the items in case you hadn't had a good look at it yet!

So Totally Enchanted (glittery silver)
Step Off, Sister! (glittery purple)
Blue My Curfew (glittery royal blue)
Bibbidi, Bobbidi, Pink! (glittery pink)
Self-Maid Millionaire (glittery gold)
Rags to Rhinestones (glittery bronze) 

Lady Tremaine (berry) 
Pumpkin (light pastel peach)
Who Is She? (warm rosy mauve)
My Moment (pink champagne glitter) 

Maiden (glittery magenta) 
All Aglow (shimmering tan)
Destined (light blue pearl)
Cinderelly (sea foam green matte)
Pumpkin Coach (cream gold)
Ball Gown (pearl white pearl)
Kill Joy (shimmering taupe)
Fairy Godmother (periwinkle)
Glass Slipper (light blue shimmer)
Royal (matte bright blue)
Gus Gus (gold shimmer)
Charming (nude pearl)
Chateau (brown shimmer)
Palace (rose gold shimmer)
Drizella (medium brown golden shimmer)
Cinders (black with gold glitter)
Jaq (mauve matte gold shimmer)
Midnight (midnight blue with light blue glitter)
A Wish (cream pearl)
Rococo (plum w/multi glitter) 

Crazy adorable, right?  The collection also includes a perfume (in regular, roll-on and Swarovski edition), a shadow quad, and a very pretty compact mirror, but I decided just to go with these three items.  All are in stock and available online right now for Sephora Beauty Insiders!

They're back! Rescue Beauty Lounge Coral, Grunge and Moulin Rouge Swatches and Review

Three of Rescue Beauty Lounge's classic but sold out shades have just made their return!  Welcome back Coral, Grunge, and Moulin Rouge!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Coral 2012
Mediun pink-toned coral creme.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge 2012 
Dirty pink-tinged taupe/putty/grey with hidden silver shimmer.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Moulin Rouge 2012
Dark chocolate-covered cherry creme.

The formula on these was slightly different than the originals, but still very good.  The main difference is that they're thinner, which also means that they dry faster.  The opacity on all three is excellent, only two coats are needed for complete coverage.

Grunge seems a little different than I remember it- darker, less pink and with added shimmer, but the other two seem to be spot on.  Good to see these classic Rescue shades return!

All three colors are available now on

Random Eye of the Day Spam

I have so many super old eye-of-the-day pictures I've never posted, so I figured I'd do a little eyeshadow spam to follow up my nail spam to help clear out my unposted pictures folder a little more!  Some of these are so old that I don't even remember which eyeshadows I used. A lot of them are really terrible, but... I took pictures, I may as well post them.  XD

This one was created using the Kat von D Candelabra palette and Illamasqua Havoc liner

This was Midnight 15 and Deep End from the Urban Decay 15 Anniversary palette and Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid liner in Woodstock. Definitely a fail look. Frosty highlight + flash = KILL IT WITH FIRE!! 

This was with the Kat von D Mi Vida Loca palette and a Wet n Wild liquid liner.  Another fail.  Turned out really crappy.  The shadows were so sheer that I had to layer them a million times and then try applying my crease color wet because the color wouldn't show up.  That palette was a huge disappointment but at least the Wet n Wild liner didn't let me down.

I have no clue what I used here.  

Same goes for this one.  I do remember using MAC Reflects Red glitter and Make Up For Ever 92 on the brows.

The only thing I remember from this look is Urban Decay 24/7 in Junkie as liner.

This one I liked.  I don't remember what the copper shadow was, but the crease color is Stila Twig, and the glitter is Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder #2.  Sugarpill Asylum on brows.

This was Sugarpill Hysteric on the lid, some sparkly black in the crease (probably Hourglass) and Eyeko Skinny Brush mascara (which is why my lashes are clumped together into spikes).

 This one I remember- it's my favorite LORAC trio with MAC Reflects Pearl glitteron top.  Sloppy liquid liner.

I used Bare Escentuals in Mystery here.  LOVE that shadow.  

Oh man, this is so terrible.  It was the first time I used my new Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in 10 (the red one!).  Wasn't as good as I'd hoped, it needed three layers and that made it come out chunky.

 I feel like I should really remember this one.  It's probably the Kryolan UV pressed powder palette over a white base.  NYX liquid liner? 

Gold and black with blue liner.  I don't remember what the shadows were but the liner is probably Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Sabbath.  I thought it made my eyes look pretty.

Don't remember this at all.  The liner looks like Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Indigo.

Another one I don't remember. 

Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette, some sort of glitter (MAC Reflects Teal?) and Stila liquid liner.  Sloppy, but my lashes looked really long.  Wish I could remember what mascara I used!

This was going to be part of my Lash Blast Luxe review, but I finished the tube of mascara before I finished taking pictures for a review.  Plus, overplucked brows! Oops!  That last picture shows the blue sparkles in the mascara.  The shadows are the Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette with Bare Escentuals Seashell over everything, applied extra heavily in the inner and outer corners.

Another one from my unfinished Lash Blast Luxe review.  See the blue sparkles in my lashes?

Green and green with green.  I think this was a Wet n Wild palette, but the liner was definitely Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Moss.  Highlight color was way too frosty, but I don't remember what it was.  Another color combination that I thought looked pretty on my eyes.
