I am so excited about the three of these blushes! They are absolutely beautiful! Merrily is a coral color with hints of gold shimmer, Love Joy is a beautiful neutral pink with hits of shimmer and gold and Love Thing is a mauve with hints of gold shimmer!

First, the packaging brings us back to the '40s when actresses and celebrities had absolutely stunning and gold lashes.

Secondly, the comb is one of a kind. There are two perspectives to the comb. There is a portion that has short lashes, allowing for volume, and another side with longer combs, which aids in length and separation of the lashes.
Below, the short combs, helping add volume:
And below, turn the wand and see the long combs, providing length and volume:
I have to admit, this is my new holy grail. I absolutely lean to this mascara any time I need the look of false eyelashes without the clump! I will do a FOTD here in a bit where you can see the depth and dimension each lash gets. It's amazing!
Retail Price: $12.00 USD
Where to purchase: Click here, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, KMart
Product: 5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 4.5 out of 5 (my comb bent a little bit when I put it back in the container)
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
Would I purchase again? Overall, I would definitely buy this product again - it's great, especially being that it is a drug store brand! As I said, my HG mascara for sure!

The set of four colors includes Volcanic (red), Aqua (blue), Evergreen (green/gold) and Earthtone (gold/copper). The colors have great pigmentation and a beautiful shimmer associated with them.
The color Volcanic is a beautiful red with pink shimmer and would also make a great blush if used with a skunk brush. Aqua is a beautiful bright blue with silver shimmer.
Evergreen has the tendency to move between a green/gold to a turquoise color, depending on how much of each you pick up with your brush. Earthtone is an absolutely beautiful brown/copper color with lots of shimmer.

Not only are the packages filled to the brim, but I received a bag full of sample baggies for each eye dust they have! What a great way to get me to buy again, because I definitely will!!

The swatches are below - sorry they are a bit blurry, my hands were shaky the other day!
I will post the baked shadows next - those are definite winners, too!!

Fiji Beach is a beautiful and shimmery turquoise. There is a hint of gold, but not a lot, in this shadow. Marine is a pale turquiose-periwinkle color with tons of gold sparkle and undertones. It is a beautiful and shimmery color, perfect for summer! Holiday is a bright Christmas green with gold sparkles. I love this color, and think it will make a great shadows as well as liner!
Next up? A whole bunch of Jesse's Girl Cosmetic's eyeshadows! Not only did I splurge on their new baked eyeshadows, but I bought a handful of their eyedusts, and couldn't be happier with the products, especially for the price!

The colors that I decided to go with this time were:
Arcane Magic "Archmage"
City Glam "Lights of Stockholm"
Arcane Magic "Faerie Glamour"
Liquid Inks Liquid Eyeliner "Lovers' Quarrel"
Rice Powder Primer
Again, I can't rave enough about how absolutely stunning the colors are. I cannot wait to try them all out. I played around a little bit with Kimichi, Monarch and Polar bear today, as well as the liquid eyeliner. The liner is a stunner in itself, as it changes colors depending upon the angle from a copper, bronze, sage green, to turquoise. An absolute beauty, that's for sure!
The other thing I am anxious to try out is the rice primer. I absolutely love and swear by mineral makeup, but the one thing that frustrates me to no end is the fact that it settles in my lines. The rice primer is supposed to help alleviate that problem, so I will definitely do a review of that once I have tried it for a few days.
Well, again, tomorrow I hope to have up pictures of these swatches, as well as the third portion of my Taylor Made Minerals!
I think that's it for now...
