NARS Steven Klein Holiday 2015 Fantascene Collection Nail Polish Review

Well I had wanted to provide you with proper nail swatches of the stunning NARS Nail Polish ($25 CAD/$20 US) shades in the NARS Steven Klein Holiday 2015 Collection but unfortunately my nails will not be cooperating.

Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

I think the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette ($ US/$ CAD) has my absolute favourite Urban Decay packaging yet. Actually it is probably one of my overall beauty product packaging faves.

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in Lit Review

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Lit ($30 US/$35 CAD) is described as a soft bronze shimmer with golden bronze sparkle. It comes in a beautiful sparkling bronze box. I love this packaging! It is so pretty, albeit a little bulky. The domed powder is on the top level with a mirror on the inside of the lid. The lower compartment hides a mini brush. Everything secures with magnetic closures. The powder has a dry feel but has a good level of pigmentation and applies smoothly. It is
