I can't say enough about how amazingly these apply and how incredibly long these last, and how they wear like steel!! I love it!!! When I am not in the mood to change my polish for a few and want lasting shine and wear I turn to Couture Gel! <3 Make sure you check the site out. This system is great and a stellar investment! Here they are.....

Amethyst Crush....
a gorgeous dusty purple metallic shimmer. This has amazing shine. Such a classic color. This is 2 coats..... beautiful! 

Bling It On....
a stunning clear based multi-glittered top coat. This would look amazing over any color! I chose to use it alone because I think it is still gorgeous all by itself and would definitely rock it just like this! This is only 2 coats!

Urban Decay Vice 2 palette

I know everyone and their uncle has blogged or made a youtube video about the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. But it is so incredibly GORGEOUS I couldn't fathom NOT posting my swatches as well. I truly am drooling over this palette. Like so many before me have said.. photos can't even do this baby justice. The packing is AMAZEBALLS!!! No two are alike. I think that is kind of really cool. I have this totally unique, one of a kind palette package..... and 20 new awesome eye shadows. What else could a girl ask for in an amazing palette?!?!? lol This palette is part on their Holiday 2013 line, so it is Limited Edition. I nabbed this palette from Urban Decay's site for $59 +tax..... and free shipping! .... on to the photos (Pic heavy)

Urban Decay Vice 2 palette
gorgeous packaging with UD emblem in a clear plastic crystal 

I love how the UD emblem is raised

the "ahhhhh haaaa" of the palette packaging..... a button to press to open the palette.... opens slowly on it's own and stops in like about a 100 degree angle to you can set it down and the HIGE mirror stays up so you can see what your doing. <3

a very functional brush. I actually wish I had about 4 more of these!! lol! I love this brush. One side is a blending brush and the other is a fluffier shadow application brush

Cover Girl Catching Fire polishes part 2

So I finally found the last two polishes that Walgreens had for the Catching Fire collection from Cover Girl. But lately I have seen a lot of other colors floating around aside from the 4 I have seen offered. So I wonder if there really is more than the four I own. If you know leave me a message. I would love to get my hands on the others, if there are more. And figure out where I can get them also. Here are the other 2 I picked up for around $1.12 after sales and coupons! 

Seared Bronze....
a gorgeous light bronze metallic with different color subtle shimmer through out. I think it is very flattering for fall. In this photo I have on 2 coats. Its a tiny bit sheer and I probably could have gone with 3 coats. The formula was fine. I still think it is a very lovely Autumn shade.

Sulfur Blaze....
A bright yellow metallic with gold shimmer. This is bright and fun. And like my son says... it matches some of the leaves on the trees already. Again I think this whole collection was very well done and mimics some very pretty Fall like colors. I have 2 coats on in this photo and still could have used 3.... but I honestly think it looks fine. I rather like this combo. 

Great job Cover Girl!! I am really impressed with these! I think I just might have to go try some more Cover Girl polishes and start adding them to my ever growing collection! 
Also if you know of any other colors, other that these or the other two I posted (I will leave a link right HERE, to the other post) that belong to this collection, please let me know the names and where you found them!!! Thanks all!!!

Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case

Holy smokes! I got my hands on the amazing Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case!!!! *squeeeee* This badboy is crazy awesome! It's part of their holiday 2013 line. I knew I wanted it as soon as I heard the name lol.... (HUGE S.O.A. fan) but when I saw the colors it was a DONE deal! I couldn't find it on Urban Decay's site anywhere and got worried that I missed out on it. Then I found out this is a Sephora exclusive! So I HAD to nab this one up! It runs $44 +tax (and s/h online)..... and worth every penny. 

First can we just say how gorgeous the packaging is.... 

 Anarchy Face Case

it's mirrored but also like this weird 3d feel, when you look into it. <3

The first 'tier' 
houses the eyeshadows (left 2 right) Redemption, Fray, Vaporize, Provocateur, and Revolt, and 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Perversion

 the super saturated lipstick pencil is in Scandal. You can get to it by opening the first or second compartment! :)

The second 'tier' houses the blushes Fetish, and Quickie and the highlighter Craze.

Now let's get to some swatches....
The 24/7 waterproof Eyeliner pencil in Perversion is the blackest black I have ever seen. <3 it. And once it dries..... it DRIES. 
The super saturated lip crayon in Scandal is a bright berry, magenta with a really pretty subtle iridescence. I heard that this color will only be available with this face case. So if you want this shade you better hurry and grab this kit. 

Redemption.... a satin dark gunmetal
Fray.... a matte mauve
Vaporize.... a gray/taupe metallic shimmer 
the formula and pigmentation on these 3 are awesome
*to me Redemption and Vaporize are a lot alike 

Revolt.... a bright metallic silver shimmer with silver micro-glitter (amazingly divine)
Provocateur.... a light dusty pink metallic shimmer with multidimensional micro-glitter. This one is the only one that gave me issues... there was just a bit much of fall out and glitter everywhere. It's still very beautiful, it just takes some patience! 

Blushes yay!!! 
Fetish.... a mauve/pink with a pinch of sparkle (my fave of the 2)
Quickie.... a bright matte baby doll pink 
Craze.... a pale gold shimmer. I have been favoring this one to all my other highlighters 

So will you be picking anything up from Urban Decay's holiday 2013 line?!!
