Tarte Smolder Eyes Set 2012!

I bought the Tarte Smolder Eyes set from last year and loved it, so when I saw a new set of colors this year I was all over it! I ordered mine from QVC, which they still have in-stock btw!

First of all I love the holiday packaging! I'm a sucker for anything that looks pretty or cute!  
Last years holiday Smolder Eyes set came with 6 chunky Smolder Eyes, but this year it came with 5 and one Skinny Smolder Eyes, which is a standard eyeliner size. 

L to R
Ash Violet, Rain Forest Black, Champagne, Gunmetal, Gold, and Onyx.

Ok can we talk about how gorgeous these colors are?!?! I have to say this set is definitely more wearable than last years. The shades themselves are more neutral and definitely less frosty/sparkly. I'm in love with all of them! 

Ash Violet is such a gorgeous grayed purple. 

Rainforest Black is my favorite! I mainly ordered this set for this color! I love any shade of green on brown eyes and this one is just stunning! Gorgeous forest green! You can wear this as a liner, all over the lid, or smudged on the lower lash line....AwwwMazing!

Champagne is a great everyday lid color. You can wear it on it's own or as a base for other shadows. You can also use it to highlight your inner corners. Great multipurpose color.

Gunmetal is a pretty taupe/grey. This is great for a classic smokey eye! Love it!

Gold is another great neutral that you can wear on the lid, on it's own, or as a base for other colors.

Onyx skinny Smolder eyes is one of the best black pencil eyeliners I've used in awhile! It is so dark and glides on like butter! It's just perfect!

As for the lasting ability, these will not budge!! I swatched these and could not remove them! I rubbed my hand hard and they did not smear one bit! I even showed my husband and he was impressed. You have a few seconds of smudge time when you apply, but once it sets, it's going to be there till you remove it with eye makeup remover.

I definitely recommend you check this set out! It would be a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. It's a must have in my book! 

You can find this on QVC.com or Sephora.com for $39.

Do you have this set or any Tarte Smolder Eyes pencils? What are your thoughts?

Butter London Disco Biscuit Nail of the Day!

I am on such a Butter London kick right now. When Ulta had their Cyber Monday deal I ordered some Butter London nail lacquers as part of their sale.

No Flash

Flash

Disco Biscuit was high on my list so I couldn't wait to wear it. As you can see in the first swatch it is pretty sheer. This was two coats but it's still see through. I should have done one more coat but I was in a hurry. :)

It is still a gorgeous color though. I wouldn't call it a glitter nail polish, it's more of an intense/high shimmer. I love the violet shimmer in it! It's so pretty! Love!

I have already had it on for 4 days and have no chips, just some wear at the tips.

I definitely recommend you check out the Butter London nail lacquers!

You can find them at http://www.butterlondon.com/ for $14 each.

Will have post more Butter London nail swatches from my haul soon!

New OCC Lip Tars! Haul!

I'm sure many of you know my love for OCC lip tars, as I have many posts on them already, but I recently ordered a few on Cyber Monday and picked up a few from my Sephora.

On Cyber Monday I ordered Black Dahlia, Lydia, Yaoi, and I got Triptych for free which is the whole reason why I ordered! I plan on mixing this with everything! The new Metallurgy collection is amazing! I NEED them all! 

So onto my swatches. The first four swatched are the ones I picked up from Sephora.

No Flash
L to R
Hush, Memento, Stalker, NSFW, Black Dahlia, Lydia, Yaoi, and Triptych.

Flash ~ Same order

I love love love these! I'm addicted to OCC Lip Tars! I honestly feel like I need no other lip product but these. If my entire MAC lipstick collection disappeared I would be ok as long as I had my lip tars. Yes they are that good!

Hush and Memento are more nude colors which I don't wear alone but they are great for mixing. Stalker and NSFW are both beautiful reds but I wouldn't say you need them both. Black Dahlia can be built up and deepened by adding more, but it can give you the most gorgeous stained lip look! Lydia is a nice everyday color, but I plan on using this and Triptych for mixing. Yaoi what can I say, bright metalic pink, I love it!  I know I've said this before but one of the big reasons I love lip tars is the ability to mix shades and create new ones. It is so easy to do as well. They are opaque, long lasting and have a nice minty scent. 

These new additions brings my lip tar collection to 20! I just ordered 4 more with my Sephora VIB $20 gift card though, so when they come I'll have 24! No I'm not ashamed! Lol

I will say though that at $16 each that can be pricey for some but a little product goes a long way! Use a pin size amount and work from there. You definitely need a lip brush. My fav is the Royal & Langnickel BC600 lip brush.

I can not recommend these enough! They are the best! 

If you go to IMATS stock up then because they usually sell them for $10 each, online they are $16.


Do you love OCC Lip Tars as much as I do? What are some of your favorite colors? Do you have any on your Christmas wish list?

Thanks for reading!
