Tarte Cosmetics - "The Jewlery Box" Limited Edition Collection

This collection is AMAZING! The colors are beautiful and the payoff is terrific. I love the lipglosses. I just wish that the colors were available in their regular line so that they can be repurchased. I also wish this box was more transportable, it is very fragile and you cannot carry it by the chain because it opens up. I'm afraid of scratching the shadows.

It comes with:
32 New Eye Shadows
8 Lipglosses
4 Eye Liner Pencils
1 Bronzer in "Park Avenue Princess" (regularly in stock)
1 Highlighter

I will write more after I've had a chance to use everything. The photos taken were right when I got it in the mail from Tarte.

Essie Nail Polish in Marshmallow

So I've been wanting a nice white polish for some time now but always worried that it would be to transparent and that I'd need to get a professional gel polish to get a nice white "color." Then I was watching LisaLisaD1 on youtube and saw her wearing this pretty polish in one of her videos and decided to trot off to Ulta to find of my own. Marshmallow looks just like it does in the bottle, no suprises here unlike with most nail polishes. What you see is what you get. I do about 3 coats and one small touchup coat and it looks great. You can see for yourself!

My new Gucci Sunglasses!

So I decided to splurge and buy these puppies for myself for Christmas. I've been wanting a new pair of nice sunglasses so I had been going to Sunglass Hut and looking these past few months but never bought anything until last weekend! I'm happy that I got them and I plan on taking care of them. Nice sunglasses are fun to have but I worry they'll get scratched up or sat on and they are not cheap! Let's see how long I can keep them looking good LOL If you're interested in the item number, they are 2890/s uwwqx 105 (thats what it says on the ear piece anyway!

"You don't know Jacques!" OPI Nail Laquer

I was getting tired of the typical pinks and reds and opted for this new hue called "You don't know Jacques" by OPI. It looked dark grey in the store but once I put it on, it suprised me. Sometimes it looks brown but many times it looks like it has some plum in it. It's nice for a changed and I'm glad that I tried it.
