I spotted some incredible makeup goods. I had my eye on this adorable lavender lipstick which gave off a color payoff which was much nicer than MAC Lavender Whip. It was a sheer and shimmery lavender. I will have to check it out next time I stop by there.
I picked up 2 nail polishes - Essie n/p in Pink Parka, and a Zoya n/p in Malia. Both colors I have been lemming for. (I'll swatch Malia later)
I instantly put the Essie polish on my toes! I love bright and vivid colors and this is one of the brightest pinks I have ever come across. It's much more opaque with the first coat than Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic's hot pink nail polish in Anima. Essie's polish also dries out to be almost a satin or matte finish. There isn't much shine to it, but I don't mind. You can always apply a top coat for shine.
I also bought MAC nail polish in Love & Friendship, but I like the color of Malia better so I have the MAC polish up in my blog sale - HERE.
