M.A.C Strength Collection: Strong Woman Lipstick

This is a true deep violet lipstick. Very pretty on my skin tone, but if you are fair to tan it will come off a bit vamp. It is a bit of a drier matte which is nice. And it tends to stain the lips. Worth the price. Love the way it feels on my lips although it is matte it does not have that dry feel to it. This is limited edition from
the M.A.C Strength Collection which will be available in stores. Jan. 6, 2013.

Madison Loves! Lime Crime: Velvetines (Red Velvet)

This is basically a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte velvet looking finish. Very pigmented and opaque with just one coat. Does not dry out the lips and has a lip gloss applicator for the perfect red pout. Please allow one minute to dry. Once applied shape color to lips while velvetine is still wet. My recommendation for removal are makeup remover wipes. I am wearing Red Velvet in the picture above. A gorgeous blue based bold red. Ruby Woo who? $16.99USD and worth every penny.

China Glaze: IT'S A TRAP-EZE! Swatch & Review!

 Price: $4.95-8.95
Brand: China Glaze
Collection: China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Collection
Finish: Glitter
This rainbow glitter nail polish has a milky base to it. In theory I know what China Glaze was trying to engineer but the execution is all wrong. The glitter is gritty and chunky against the semi-opaque base making the nail surface have a rough feel to it. Although there is loads of glitter in this polish you must apply several coats for it to be even keel on your nail. Shown above with two coats. No base and no top coat. I highly recommend a glossy top coat. Also 100% pure acetone for removal as this polish is 95% glitter.
