China Glaze Crackle Glaze.

I'd ordered four of the shades but, as yet, only two have arrived.
So far, I have my hands on Lightning Bolt (white) & Broken Hearted (hot pink). Since they only arrived this morning, I've only gotten to take Broken Hearted for a test drive.
Crackle Glaze isn't quite as thick as Barry M's Instant Nail Effects. It gives just the same level of coverage & drying time is the same.
If you like the crackle effect, these are well worth checking out.
The picture is OPI's It's Totally Fort Worth It as the base shade with a layer of Broken Hearted

Eye Primers

UD Primer Potion, Etude Proof 10, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, Kat Von D  High Voltage Eye Primer in Skin, UD Primer Potion in Eden, Kat Von D High Voltage Eye Primer in Smoky & Stellar.

It has been somewhat of a chore, but I've tried a fair few primers now. My main concern is creasing in the inner eye corner. Having oily lids & somewhat hooded eyes has presented a challenge to say the least.

With that in mind, I've decided it's time to compare some of the primers I've tested out. Just ignore the bloody plug lurking in the picture background!

New Kat Von D goodies at Sephora.

Browsing the Sephora site this morning, I noticed that the new Kat Von D palette, Truth, is up there.
White packaging, like the Memento Mori palette, Truth has more in common colour-wise with the afore-mentioned Memento Mori. It's not packed full of smoky shades, rather softer colours with a couple of brighter shades thrown in for good measure.

The shades are:

Sugar Skull - vanilla
Long Distance - citron
Snake Eyes - lime
Finland - aqua, cream formula
Prague - plum
Galeano - pale lilac
Rehab - golden tan
Sister - peach
