Kiwi Scented By Hot Topic (33)

 So this is one of the most interesting polishes ever. I had bought this just before the revlon scented polishes came out so I didn't buy any if those. I found the finish to be off putting. You can't tell in the pics because I took them so late and for some reason I couldn't get the polish to stop eating my top coat. It got a little shiney but not like I normally get it.
 Review 7/10
Dry Speed: 0 points- After 48 hours, I still got dents in my polish. Seriously?
Application:1 point- Brush was decent, it was the cap that was a pain. It is so small I could bearly hold it.
Price: 2 points- It was like $2.50 for this bottle and since it was a specialty polish I think this is fair.
Wear: 2 points- Lasted 4 days or wear.
Opaque: 2 points: full coverage after one coat. Did a second just for safety.

Until next time...

Baked, Not Fried swatches.

Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA for what feels like forever. I was dealing with finals and end of the semester stuff. I hope you guys can forgive me, because I can promise that for the rest of the month I am going to be posting my heart out. I have a lot of swatching to do and a few reviews. More polish and lots more makeup looks.
So for now I am posting about one of the holiday baked shadows from Wet n' Wild Baked Holiday Collection. This is the Baked, not Fried set. It is just a neutral palette. It is pretty and shimmery but it has bad color payout and even worst fallout. I found this out just from the swatches. I have like 3 or 4 dry applications of these shadows on my skin. The top half is dry no primer, and the bottom is over Elf Mineralized primer.

 This is to show the colors themselves.
 This is to show the shimmer/metalic sheen they have. Pretty but difficult to work with.
The palette also came with an eyeliner. It is a sample and Ill most likely throw it in a project pan at some point.

Until next time...
