China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic

*Purchased by me*

Hi again! So, it's finally been getting cooler here and feel like Fall so I'm finally feeling like busting out the dark, vampy polish colors. I had been planning on using another China Glaze polish but when I came across Rodeo Fanatic I knew I had to use it.

Rodeo Fanatic is from the 2008 Rodeo Diva collection but looks to still be readily available online; I think I got mine at Sally's a few years back. This has been one of my untrieds for so long and I'm really glad I chose it. It's such a pretty color that has some greenish shift in some lights and serious sparkle outside.

Definitely check it out if you want a seriously gorgeous Fall color.

Sleek Sunset Palette

*Purchased by me*

Today I have one of my Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palettes to show you. I have always loved these palettes and have a small collection of them which I hope to keep adding to. Sleek is not available in stores in the US but it is readily available online; I usually order mine from Amazon since there are some sellers you can buy from that don't charge shipping. For the ones not available on Amazon I usually hit up one of my European Facebook friends to pick it up for me and send it my way.

My most recent purchase was from Amazon and I used a gift card that I earned by doing online surveys so technically I didn't have to put any money out for it. This is the Sunset palette.

Swatched over Urban Decay Primer Potion 

My one complaint with these palettes is that they don't have the shade names printed on the actual palette; they are usually printed on the plastic insert that covers the shadows. This one didn't have any names on that either and I couldn't find shade names in the quick online search I did so I'm not sure if they actually have names. Regardless, it is a gorgeous palette. The left side especially is full of very Fall colors that I love and the colors on the right will go perfectly with them to create different looks. For the most part the shadows were soft and pigmented (especially the orange shade, it's gorgeous). Although a few required a bit more work than others it was not enough of a big deal for me not to want to use them.

I am definitely looking forward to playing with this palette and seeing what kinds of looks I can come up with. And keep and eye out for more Sleek i-Divine swatch posts; I plan on swatching all of my palettes. 

I've only tried the eyeshadows but the blushes look great also. Have you ever tried Sleek products? What do you think of them? What is your favorite?

Milani Vivid Violet & Sugar High

*Purchased by me*

Hi! I just wanted to drop in with a quick mani post. Since it was still sunny and warm here last week I decided to do a mani with some bright-ish colors. I chose Milani Vivid Violet with and accent of Milani Sugar High.

This was a perfect mani for the end of the summer. I am really loving the accent nail thing lately; it lets me have fun with glitter without the hassle of removing it from all 10 fingers.

I hope you all have a great week!
