I love these things so much I had to stock up.. I've hit pan on my first one already... YAY!!!

here are some of the products up close
I've been looking for this foreverrr... Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens... everywhere! you name the store I've been there to look for this baby... I finally found them at Rite-Aid the second time I went back there to check & there were only two left... these things are soooooo hard to find.... so ladies, if you ever find some, make sure you stock up!

here are some great swatches I found from some of my favorite nail blogs.... thanks ladies for letting me steal some pix... heehee...

(click on the names to visit their awesome blogs)

since I've heard so many makeup lovaahs ravin about the new line - Color Icon from Wet n Wild, I could not wait to get my self atleast one of the palettes to see why they're so crazy about them... I chose to get the PRIDE palette 

& I also got Lagoon from the same line....

& you can see from these swatches why so many girls are crazy about them...
holy crap!!! they are uber pigmented! something you wouldn't expect from a brand that's so dirt cheap.... I was amazed!! I want to get me all 4 or 5??? palettes....

do you own any of these stuff?? are you as crazy over them as I am??

wonderin why I got so much stuff
& why I don't open & swatch most of 'em??
it's because,
1} I am gonna be doin a swap
with a lovely girl from London soon 
(details in future posts)
2} I sell stuff on eBay
3} I'm putting some stuff together
for a giveaway
(watch out for that!)
