Denimania – Beauty Rush Eyeshadows

Beauty Rush EyeshadowI know – I’m a little tardy to the party. The Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Limited Edition Denimania collection has been on shelves (pink buckets, really) for a while now, and only now do I venture out to see what it’s all about.

To tell you honestly, I am on a backlog to try out and test so many products, that adding to the pile seems silly. While new collections and products intrigue me, very few come home with me. Money talks pretty loud, and the backlog even louder. With that said, the coupon for a free pair of panties had me knocking on Victoria’s door.

My purchase consisted of some shadows, a newly packaged mascara, and some other extras to come to MOJ shortly.

Mine came super dusty around the top for some reason. These look like baked shadows (correct me if I’m wrong).

These shadows are supposed to be used both in wet and dry form. I have only swatched them dry so far and am loving the dimensional shimmer and how soft they are. They are also very easy to build up.

Have you tried these?

My Own Judge Nail ChallengeAs you read this, I will be attempting to be a snazzy paintball shooter. I have never tried, but I envision myself to go in and knock everyone out like a sniper. I might just come back sad and bruised, but as I continue my Nail-a-Day challenge, and try to catch up with the days I owe ya, I’ll keep the digits soft, unscathed, and unbruised.

Want to take part of this challenge? Everyone is welcome – even if you extend your -a-day part with a week or a-every other day! 🙂

Send me your mani pics, and I’ll feature them as part of the challenge. I’m sure by end of each month, I can scrounge up some fancy polishes as a reward for the most original submission(s)! 🙂

Read on to see all the colors that I sported, and let me know which is your fave. For reference, whenever there are two pictures, the one on the left is without flash, and the one on the right is with.

This one is a bit difficult to apply, but I will do a separate review of this line a bit later. The color is very pretty in the bottle and with flash, but extremely hard to capture with either regular camera, or with the naked eye after more than one coat (which is necessary).

This one was totally stolen from my fellow Bloggin’ Beaut, Britt from ClumpsofMascara. I knew that this bad boy had to travel to the Big Apple ever since she posted about it, but now I’m not sure if I’ll send it back to the orange state. (Okay I will, relax!). The color is an amazing vibrant purple and is not like any other I have seen.

Such a pleasant green, that I’m ssssweetly addicted. :)~ Yet another win win from Shades by Barielle. I’m not sure what had my nail lumpy in the picture without flash, but it seemed to have gone away with flash. The green though? Super minty and melon-y. Just enough bright to be reminiscent of warmer weather, but appropriate still to be fashionably forward in the office.

And now this… is just a tease of polishes to come. My other Bloggin’ compadre, over from VampyVarnish posted about these polishes not found in the US, and I was so enamored that I scampered over to eBay to get them right away. I used my Ebates account when doing so, so I already got money back for my purchase, but the polishes are reward enough themselves!
