Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit Review & Swatches

Golden Opportunity Tarte To Go Kit Summer 2013

What? $10 Tarte? Yup, the Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit is a mere $10 bucks! This is a great way to try the new Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner without committing to a full size.

Hey, I know for a fact bronzers can be scary so who wants to dish out $37 only to find out they really don’t love the product they purchased?

Tarte gives you the perfect little deluxe sample packaged up with their cult favorite powder bronzer in Park Ave Princess so you can give it a try for yourself!

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer aka Apocalips Lip Lacquer as they are referred to in the UK are now available in US drugstores. Show Off Lip Lacquer is available in a range of fourteen shades and is a liquid lipstick slash gloss with full color coverage.

These are in special displays at the moment but they will become part of the Rimmel general catalog display later this Fall.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

Thanks to my makeup sis Christine for not allowing me to give up on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Revlon recently reintroduced Super Lustrous Lipstick with a shine finish for Summer 2013/Fall 2013 in a range of new shades.

This newly reformulated lipstick now has a shiny finish however, some of the shades didn’t appeal to me so I casually slipped past them more than once at the drugstore. My reader and friend Christine mentioned how incredible they were and how there was indeed a coral I’d probably love and how I should try them and well, needless to say, she was convincing.

Unfortunately the coral was sold out but I did pick up Terra Copper which also happens to be a very me shade.

Here are my thoughts!

Sneak Peek: Sehora Disney Ariel Collection

Sephora Disney Ariel

I got some of the goodies from the Sephora Disney Ariel Collection yesterday. Sephora’s latest Disney Collection featuring The Little Mermaid herself, Ariel, is quite adorable. I was excited to get a sneak peek post up as soon as I could.

I thought Sephora would go a little too aquatic with this selection but they combined shades of the ocean along with some very pretty warmer, sunset shades as well which makes it the perfect combination of warm and cool.

I think Sephora did a fairly good job with the promotional images on the palette as the shades look very similar to what you see in those images. I heard a few complaints about the art work on the boxes and palette but I can’t say I’m disappointed. I think it’s a very elegant depiction of Ariel. It just feels grown up and not like a child’s makeup or toy of some sort.

So far, after a brief sniff, I think the fragrance is probably my favorite of all the three princesses Sephora has featured thus far too!

Take a look for yourself!

Koroa Geekery Shop on Etsy for the Whovian Fangirl

Doctor Who Messenger Bag

Hey Whovians!

If you stalk me on Instagram you might have seen some goodies I hauled from FeerieDoll’s Koroa Geekery Shop on Etsy. I’ve been watching Doctor Who since I was a child as you know and I love how its evolved into such geeky pop culture. Any chance I get I’m collecting some oddball Whovian item or another be it action figures, busts, t-shirts, or accessories.

I discovered FeerieDoll on Redbubble a while ago but I was delighted to run across her Etsy Shop about a month or so ago. I love her cute little kawaii imitations of the good Doctor, Supernatural, Sherlock, and more….! I own a few of her items from Redbubble but after discovering her Etsy shop I was delighted she had an assortment of cute bags, wallets, and more! Products you def cannot get from Redbubble.

Take a look!
