Disney Jasmine Collection by Sephora - Eyeshadow Palette - Limited Edition - First Look

I Bought This

Anyway onto the photos!

Comments and What Not to Post!

Let me start off this post by saying welcome to all my new readers, and how much I appreciate you and of course my loyal readers who have been with me for a long while as well! It's really fun reading all your comments and thoughts on each post and getting to know each of you as well.

If you've not noticed I have some notes placed below the box for comments on each post, one part of this is to advice that I will not tolerate rude or hateful comments aimed towards myself or my readers. That's just a given, you don't walk up to people on the street and say something rude or hateful... and if you do then you probably need to relearn the "If you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all." phrase they used to teach us when we were young.

Anyway that is one reason I've started moderating comments but the second reason is because of spam and also one I've still seen regardless is people adding links at the end of a comment some examples of comments that won't be approved. "Come visit my blog" or "check out my giveaway at", basically don't put a website link on your posts to promote your site.

Now don't get me wrong, I'd love to checkout some sites of my wonderful followers which is why in the coming months I plan to try and do a "Follower Appreciation"week or month.

Anyway this counts for giveaway posts as well, if you leave a link in your comment with your blog giveaway or blog link (unless I've asked you to) then it will be disqualified.

Now that, that is all done I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week and keep an eye out for my new posts which should include swatches of the Disney Jasmine Collection by Sephora!

Milani Cosmetics - Texture Creams Specialty Nail Lacquers - Limited Edition - Review and Swatches

Press Sample
Recently I got the opportunity to try out the new Milani Cosmetics Limited Edition Texture Creams Nail Polishes, these are being released in March and the colors bring a feel of spring to the drab winter days.

Anyway onto the photos!

901 Tainted In Red, 902 Spoiled In Fuchsia, 903 Aqua Splash, 904 Yellow Mark, 905 Purple Streak, 906 Shady Gray

What the site says:

"TEXTURE CREAMS Specialty Nail Lacquer
Limited Edition Collection
Bright, vibrant crème nail lacquer with a textured, matte finish. Top Coat optional

To remove, soak a cotton ball with acetone based nail polish remover. Allow to set on the nail for about 20-30 seconds and wipe outwards, away from the nail bed. Turn the cotton ball over and remove any excess on the sides of the nail."


Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Polyethylene, Adipic Acid / Neopentyl Glycol / Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer,Isopropyl Alcohol, Propyl Acetate, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, TriphenylPhosphate, N-Butyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Benzophenone-1,Citric Acid, Dimethicone.  +/-May Contain: Black 2 (CI 77266), Mica (CI77019), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Red IronOxide (CI 77491), Black Iron Oxide, (CI 77499), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI77510), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 34 Lake (CI 15880), Aluminum Powder (CI 77000), Polyethylene Terephthalate, Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090).

My thoughts:

I really love the colors they have chosen, it brightens up the current drab winter mood and makes me think of Spring. The texture is really neat looking and the pigmentation of the polishes are really strong with just a single coat. I would definitely suggest picking these up if you love polishes and since they are Limited Edition that is another reason to grab them fast.

Price: $4.99 for 0.45 fl oz. / 13.2 ml.
Rating: 5/5

Guest Post - Michty Maxx - NOTD

Hi my name is Michty Maxx and I've just started in the makeup and beauty blog business. I used to just be into simple stuff like a black smoky eye, red lips or a bit of purple on the lid, which is what I wore to gigs with my band, but this past year I have branched out into vibrant colours and outrageous glitter for lips, eyes nails!

If you like what you see below, feel free to visit me here at The Magnificent Makeup of Michty Maxx. Blog: I would love to share my creativity with anyone who is interested and wants a peek.
I can't get enough of this Gosh Holographic nail polish and decided to whip it out again with a magenta accent nail and holographic glitter. I must say that Modnails and Cutepolish of Instagram and youtube have given me leopard fever and so here's another leopard print manicure.
Also, I find that adding a top coat to Gosh Holographic 549 nail polish really decreases the linear holographic effect, so I only used top coat on the accent nail.


Products Used

Base coat
Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator
Zoya Anchor base coat

First layer
Gosh 549 Holographic (2 coats)

Leopard print Pattern
-using a bobby pink and a toothpick
Color club Wink, wink, twinkle for dots
Glitter Gal Serpent black for details

Ring Accent nail
Color club Wink, wink, twinkle (1 coat)
China glaze Techno (1 coat)

Top coat 
-only on accent nail
Seche Vite dry fast top coat
