Moon Rabbit Cosmetics - Special Force Collection Launch

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share with you Moon Rabbit Cosmetics' Fall line as it is finally available for purchase. As an added bonus, all of the special force collection shadows are buy 2 get 1 free (works for sample baggies AND full size jars).

Based off some of my favorite characters from Dragon Ball Z, Ginyƫ Tokusentai. They are one of the most ridiculous and probably sparkliest characters in the whole series. Boiled down, they are a mix of Power Rangers and Sailor Moon. How could you not love that?! I don't know if you enjoy watching anime, but you will definitely love the shadows they inspired!

Commander - deep purple bursting with violet and silver shimmers

Red Magma - white with red shift, and full of gold shimmers

Blue Hurricane - bright blue with a subtle gold shift

Ultra Eraser Gun - peachy orange with a gold shift

Time Freeze - lime green with blue shimmers

What do you think of this collection? I had a blast working on it. The colors, I think, are quite beautiful and look wonderful over a variety of different primers and bases. You can wear them as a sheer everyday eye look just over a primer like UDPP, or you can really amp up the color using a foiling medium or colored bases. The versitility really makes it like you have 20 different shadows instead of just five! I exaggerate a little, but you know what I mean.

Would you wear any of these colors? Do you think these colors make a good fall collection? How would you put these colors together to create a look?

Every day is an adventure.

Wet N Wild Lipstick Swatches

Hey everyone! I have been M.I.A. lately. Things have gotten busy at home and I was sick, had a week full of headaches and the ATTACK OF THE KILLER ALLERGIES!!! Anyway, no excuses, just giving you all an update. As I have been trying to go through and swatch all my lipsticks it seems that this post magically disappeared. I do not know why, anyways... Today is going to be full of Wet N Wild spam!


 Vamp It Up

Purty Persimmon

24 Carrot Gold

Cherry Picking

Things I love, these lipsticks. Things I don't love so much, how difficult Vamp It Up is to work with. I love the color. It is just perfect for fall, it just needs a little help. I recently picked up a few dark purple lip liners to see how the work with Vamp It Up. Cherry Picking is just an awesome red. I think many people could wear this red and look just wonderful. 24 Carrot Gold and Purty Persimmon however, are a bit more difficult for everyone to pull off. I am not sure if I have the right skin tone for Purty Persimmon, but I do know that I do NOT like how 24 Carrot Gold looks on me. I am going to try to layer it with glosses and see if I can make it work for me. I am loving Rose-bud and Coral-ine. Rose-bud is a perfect dusty rose. I have forsaken Tea Rose from NYX and have since replaced it with Rose-bud as my perfect office lipstick. (Coral-ine, honestly was mostly purchased because of the name. I love corals and I really loved the book Coraline. It is what it is. At least I am honest.=] ) Coral-ine is a pretty orangy, pinky, red that I just can't get enough of! It seems to be a less orange and more red/pink version of NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick. My current love of the NYX Matte Lipstick line. It seems there are not many lipsticks that I have purchased that I am not totally in love with. I think I have a disease.

The only color I am not fond of at all, is 24 Carrot Gold. Do you have any tips or tricks to make this lipstick work? Is it worth it or a lost cause?
What is your favorite Wet N Wild lipstick? Are there any that I do not have that I really must pick up?
