For Friday, I wanted to show you guys my all time favorite eyeshadow look. It's one of my go to combinations because it brightens my eyes and defines them at the same time! Another one of my favorites is Tuesday, with Mauvement Pigment. This pigment on its own is horrendous! Chunky, glittery, all around fall out mess. However, the Pixie Epoxy grabbed on to the glitter and helped its true beauty shine.

I will definitely do an EOTD from time to time but not everyday lol. Again thank you to everyone that read these posts!

What did you think of the April Shadows project? What are your favorite eyeshadow combinations?

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette (swatches)

I have been eyeing this palette since I found out it was going to be released! It's a gorgeous palette with neutrals, golds, pinks, and purples. I'm a big fan of the Too Faced palettes so I knew I would eventually pick this up. The colors are perfect for spring and are so smooth and pigmented as Too Faced shadows usually are.

P.S. Total coincidence that today is the Royal Wedding and these shadows all have bridal/wedding names =]

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette

Hi gorgeous shadows! The setup is the same as the other Too Faced Palettes: 3 big eyeshadows and 6 smaller ones. The rows are set up in an order to reflect a look you can do. There is a Day look, a Classic look, and a Fashion look.

Top row: (left to right) Soulmates, I Do, Un-Veil 
Middle Row: (left to right) Kiss the Bride, Cut the Cake, First Dance
Bottom Row: (left to right) Bouquet Toss, Honeymoon, Ever After

One thing I wanted to note is that this is slimmer than the regular Too Faced palettes. It doesn't have the pullout drawer with the brush. The picture is of the Romantic palette compared to the Natural palette.

I am so excited to play with this palette more! The colors are amazing quality and have a wide variety of tones and finishes. I highly recommend this palette! 

You can purchase the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette at Sephora or Too Faced for $35.

Do you already own the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette? What do you think of it? Will you be picking it up?

Cover Girl Pure Romance Quad (swatches)

Recently, I have been seeing Missglamorazzi often list in the description box of her videos that she has been wearing the Cover Girl Pure Romance Quad, which got me intrigued. I always love her eye looks so I went to scope this quad out. It's a gorgeous purple-neutral quad that is especially flattering for us brown eyed girls! I would not have noticed it if it weren't for Ingrid and just wanted to pass along a product I've been loving. I wore it on the Monday of this April Shadows post.

Cover Girl Pure Romance Quad 

Yummy neutrals! 

left to right: matte brown, purpley neutral, light pink, cream
I won't lie and say these shadows are AMAZING quality. You do have to build them up to get the true colors and they're a little powdery. But I love the colors and have been enjoying using it.

Do you own the Cover Girl Pure Romance Quad? What do you think of it? Will you be checking it out?

My Zoya Collection Overview (Pic Heavy!)

With the Zoya Polish Exchange going on until Wednesday, I thought I would do a post with swatches of all my Zoya polishes. I love their polishes for the most part, they have some gorgeous colors and wear very well. I hope this post helps tose that are trying to decide on polishes for the polish exchange, and if you just wanted to see my Zoya polishes: here you go! =] Please let me know if you like this type of post and would like to see my collection of any other brand!

Gaia- gorgeous golden white. This was 3 coats.

Ginessa- Silvery white with shimmer. This was 3 coats.

Luna- sheer base with silver glitter. This was 2 coats. This shade comes out as mostly glitter.

Trixie- This is one of my favorites, it's a metallic silver with silver shimmer. Perfect aluminum foily color. This was 2 coats and it applies like a dream.

Jules- This is a bronzey champagne. It's a gorgeous color and applied smoothly in 2 coats. This is smaller than the others because it was in my Birchbox.

Miley- The pictures makes it look blue in the bottle but it's a light, blue toned lilac. It's very sheer and watery, this was three coats.

Portia- gorgeous pinky nude. This is a great color for the spring nude polish trend. This was two coats.

Dove- As the name suggests, it's a dove grey. Great application, this was two coats.

Sweet- This is a medium barbie pink. It applied really nicely, 2 coats.

Happi- This is such an interesting color, a pink with gold/green duochrome. This was 2 coats.

Rica- This is one of their new cummer colors. It is a hot pink coral with multi colored gold and orange shimmer. This was 3 coats. The removal process was so messy. If you see glitter on my hands in the pictures, it is because I did this and Faye first and I could not get rid of the glitter from it. Just something to keep in mind.

Ali- A raspberry hot pink. This was 3 coats.

Renee-A raspberry pink, it dries pretty matte. This was also two coats. I think this would look great on the toes!

Zara- medium purple with gold shimmer. This is more on the sheer side, 3 coats.

Dannii- A medium purple with gold shimmer. This was 2 coats.

Faye- Mauvey purple with gold and green shimmer. This applied in 3 coats. Like Rica, it left glitter on my hands after I removed it.

Charla- If anyone asks me for a Zoya Polish recommendation, I always say this! It is a gorgeous multi dimensional blueish green mermaid color with green shimmer. This was 2 coats.

Yummy- This is a midtone blue. It's an "ok" color, I sometimes forget I have it. This was 3 coats.

Tallulah- This is a medium blue with green shimmer. The shimmer is very subtle and unfortunetly the camera didn't pick it up. It's on the sheer side and applied in 3 coats.

Kotori- This has to be my most disappointing Zoya color. It's a midnight blue with blue and silver shimmer. The color looks so promising in the bottle but it is so sheer. This was 4 coats and still not opaque.

Crystal- a gorgeous metallic blue with gold shimmer. This was the sheerest of the polishes I got, it was 3 coats. The color combination makes it look like a night sky!

Mimi- Dark purple with medium purple shimmer. This is really pretty if you are a purple polish lover. This was 3 coats.

Julieanne- This would be a nice fall/winter color. It is a deep purple with purple shimmer. I believe it was three coats.

That is my collection of  Zoya polishes! It takes up it's own full row on my polish rack. My Zoya recommendations: Gaia, Trixie, Portia, Jules, Sweet, Faye, Rica, Charla, Happi and Talullah.

Are you going to be participating in the Zoya Polish Exchange? What are your favorite Zoya colors?

Fyrinnae Haul and Swatches

My recent video showed my Fyrinnae haul and I shared some of my thoughts on the products and the company overall. I wanted to share the swatches of the eyeshadows I bought with and without their primer, the Pixie Epoxy. Unfortunetly while I am posting this video and blogpost, the Pixie Epoxy won't be on the site for a few weeks! I highly recommend you guys checking it out when it comes back on the site.

Haul art!

This is their Pixie Epoxy. It is a primer that helps catch the glitter and shimmer in the eyeshadows. I haven't been using it often enough to review it but I do like it! What you get on the wand when you take it out is enough for both eyes. When you apply this and it dries, it's VERY tacky and sticky, which is great because it holds onto the glitter in the shadows very well. The stickiness feeling goes away when you put a shadow over it.

Top Row: (left to right) Kurisumasu!, Orangutan, Te Amo (free sample)
Bottom Row: (left to right) Sacred, Beholder, Snow Leopard, Knickers in a Twist

Top Row: (left to right) Kurisumasu!, Orangutan, Te Amo (free sample)
Bottom Row: same colors on top of Pixie Epoxy

Top Row: (left to right) Sacred, Beholder, Snow Leopard, Knickers in a Twist
Bottom Row: same colors on top of Pixie Epoxy

As you can see, the Pixie Epoxy helps the shadow be more vibrant and really brings out the subtle shimmer and undertones in the shadows!

Color Descriptions from the site:

Kurisumasu!- Versatile satiny rosy beige shade with flashes of golden sparkle. Great for a highlight or all-over basic shade that can suit many skintones.

Orangutan- This shade is a satin-matte peach with a coppery tone, leaning neutral rather than warm, but should suit many skintones. Slight satiny finish, and semi-transparent unless used over an opaque base, making it an ideal highlight or all-over wash colour.

Te Amo- This shade is a glowing iridescent copper highlight, almost ghostly, despite how photos make it appear. A sticky base makes more color come though, but it works well and "glows" over regular primers.

Sacred- Not quite gold, this shade is a pale glowing metallic taupe. It does lean warm, but it suitable for many skintones.

Beholder- Sparkling, somewhat silvery deep taupe.

Snow Leopard- A soft, deep taupe shade that has subtle hues of rose. Very versatile.

Knickers in a Twist- This shade is a deep taupe with subtle bronze sparkle. Similar to Snow Leopard in hue, but darker and without the red shimmer.

You can purchase Fyrinnae products on

April Shadows Weekly Roundup

If you are unfamiliar with this whole "April Shadows" concept, it is a continuation of my Eyes of March project, where I vowed to use a different eyeshadow everyday! It's a fun challenge to do to rediscover your forgotten shades. You don't even have to do it with eyeshadows, can be with anything in your collection that you have a lot of.

This week I've been a bit lazy with my eyeshadow, I only wore it 3 days! Here are my looks throughout the week:


Products used:

-Urban Decay Sin (lid)
-Urban Decay Shakedown (crease)
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk (inner corner base)
-Urban Decay Virgin (inner corner)
-Jordana Fabuliner (upper lashline)
-Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner (waterline)
-NYX Black eyeshadow (to set liner)
-Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara

I loved this look, it was nice and simple. Also, when Urban Decay makes good eyeshadows, they make it GOOD. No glitter face= happy Yuliya!


Products used:

-Too Faced I Do (lid)
-Too Faced Ever After and Too Faced Un-Veil (crease)
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk (inner corner base)
-Too Faced Soulmates (inner corner)
-Jordana Fabuliner (upper lashline)
-Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner (waterline)
-NYX Black eyeshadow (to set liner)
-Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara

I FINALLY caved and bought the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette and all the colors I used were from there! I've only had it a few days but it's gorgeous.


Products used:

-MAC Bare Study Paintpot (base)
-MAC Prance Eyeshadow (lid)
-Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner (waterline)
-NYX Black eyeshadow (to set liner)
-Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara

I had to wake up super early so today was a very minimal makeup day. I love the combo of an eye brightening base and an eye brightening eyeshadow. Also, wearing only mascara and upper lashline liner makes your lashes look HUGE.

What is on your eyes today? Do you have a favorite eyeshadow combo?

Zoya Nail Polish Exchange is Back!

If any of you have been buying Zoya polish for a while, you know that every Earth Day they have a Polish Exchange. This year, they seemed to not announce it in advance but it is going on now!

How it works:

"1.    Go to and pick out the polishes you would like and add them to your cart. You must select at least 6 bottles  and no more than 24 bottles of polish (Salons accounts minimum 12 maximum 48 bottles.)
2.    Apply the code. EARTHZOYA
3.    Your order value will be adjusted to reflect the promotion
4.    SUBMIT your order!

Then Zoya will ship out your NEW polish! YEA!

Once you get your order (Here is where the exchanging* happens)…
1.    Ship back the equivalent number of bottles to the ones you received to the return address below.(ie. If  you got 6 bottles of Zoya – you would send us 6 NON-ZOYA polishes,
please check with you carrier on the proper way to ship nail polish)
2.    Include a copy of your order

Shipping Address
Art of Beauty, Inc.
c/o Polish Exchange
5060 Taylor Rd, Unit D
Cleveland, Ohio, 44128, USA

Once we receive your polish we do the rest! It’s that simple!


The bottles you send in cannot be Zoya, Qtica or Nocti polishes (but they can be any other brand). 

We are using the honor code here folks! We want to make sure you get your Zoya Nail Polish! We send you the polish first then you send your old polish back to us! If you do choose to send us your old polish we promise to properly dispose of it according to EPA guidelines. This offer is only good for 1 week so hurry – Don’t Wait!"


This is a cool way to try Zoya polishes you wanted for 50% off. Each bottle will be $4 with this promo. Remember, it has to be a MINIMUM of 6 polishes. Some of my Zoya recommendations: Charla, Sweet, and Trixie.

Will you be participating in the promo? If so, what polishes do you plan on getting?

Upcoming Bath & Body Works Collections

I have become somewhat (ok let’s face it, full blown) Bath & Body Works ADDICT. I feel like I just discovered this new world and can’t get enough. After I started discussing my love on twitter, turns out a lot of you are BBW fans as well. Can someone tell me why I have missed out on this wonderfulness for so long??

Recently BBW had a Facebook live chat, which you can watch here, with their President of Product Development, Camille McDonald, giving the scoop on upcoming summer and fall collections. Camille is responsible for popular BBW scents including Japanese Cherry Blossom and Twilight Woods. I thought I would take advantage of all this new info and organize an outline to share with you guys. I tried to make it in time order to make it easier. I hope you BBW lovers are excited as I am for these new collections! Just a warning, there’s TONS of new things coming and this is a long post.


1. April 30th- I Red heartFragrance Event 

I went to one of these in March and it’s a fun way BBW gets its customers involved in giving feedback for new scents. They had a gift with purchase, which in the last one was a full sized Country Chic Lotion. Also, they had a set of testers you could vote on that were going to be a new scent based on the winner. These weren’t labeled and you just picked number 1-4.

2. Country Chic

This scent has already been released. It’s meant to be a spring version of the Twilight Woods scent. It is a blend of sparkling lemon, bright wildflowers, and sheer woods. Camille described is as a casual chic fragrance.

3. Into The Wild

This scent is just starting to release. I bought the little travel sized lotion which is all they have available for now. It is meant to be a union between fashion and fragrance, inspired by the Gucci animal print designs. The fashion element adds the sexyness of animal print and the fragrance element adds scent with mandarin, bright fruits, woods, and patchouli.

This scent will also come with a body scrub that has walnut chips in it.

4. Series of Favorite Ingredients

Camille talked about what a success the Vanilla collection was and wanted to make some more collections with what she called favorite addictive ingredients , Coconut and Citrus.

I think the most exciting thing about this collection are the BRUSHES. I love MAC eye brushes and am really interested in what these will look like (split fibre??) and how they will work. The mineralize eye shadows sound interesting but none of the color combos appeal to me and when I get a palette/trio/quad, I want to use it all together.

Are you excited about this collection? What’s on your wishlist?

Current Polish: China Glaze Lemon Fizz

With spring here, I've been excited to use my pastel shades (which are my favorite shades to wear!). After a day of sunshine, we have had a 3 days of gross rain so I decided to wish for the sun back by wearing happy, bright colors. China Glaze Lemon Fizz is a great pastel yellow for the spring. It reminds me of baby chicks!

This was after four days of wear! The polish applies smoothly with 2 coats and lasts really well.

What is your favorite polish season? Do you own China Glaze Lemon Fizz? What do you think of it?
