I've really been loving unusual duochrome looks lately. I mean, brown with a green/blue flash is rather commonplace (think about how many brands have such a shaodw; MAC, Too Faced, Kat von D, Urban Decay, etc) but I've seen some beautiful looks with magenta/blue and orange/golden green.
While rummaging through my makeup (currently half is still living on the main floor) I was thrilled to discover that I already owned such a color! Enter Femme Fatale Cosmetics Dispersion. A matte sort of brick red color with icy blue interference.

In a few hours, the latest collections from DIFFERENT dimension will be available and I'm really excited because you know me and fall collections. Missi knocked it out of the park with last year's fall and Halloween shades I think that this year is no different!
First, the Heavy Metals Collection. Steampunk inspired, this collection features six holographic shades that are almost chrome like in appearance as well as two glitter toppers that look like they are loaded with precious metals.

This was my FOTD yesterday, but I ended up being so tired that I fell asleep at 6PM and didn't get around to posting it.
I decided to go with a bright lipstick with that sort of gradient outline so I pulled out Impulse Cosmetics Run Away Lipstick. If you recall, I swatched it here.

Tatcha products on Messy Wands a long time ago and Xiao's favorable review kept the brand on my mind ever since. So I must say, I was exceptionally eager to try out the Ritual Discovery Kit for Dry Skin which supplies you with all four steps of the Tatcha Ritual; Pure, Polished, Radiant & Ageless. At first I was quite cautious (as trying four new products all at once seemed like I was just asking for trouble) but I couldn't be more thrilled with the results.

Three posts in three consecutive days? Ladies and gents, I do declare that I feel like I have my blogging mojo back!
Today I'm showcasing a limited edition trio of polishes from one of my favorite brands, Cirque Colors. I always really enjoy Cirque's collections because they are well thought out and always cohesive. The Kontiki Collection features three shades that are loaded with color shifting shimmer and micro glitter.
I used three coats of each color. I would describe the finish as not entirely jelly nor is it wholly creme either; it skirts the boundary in between. They are just translucent enough to really show off the color shifting shimmer but without prominent nail lines. They applied nicely and leveled well too.
Usually when describing a collection, I can single out a clear favorite color. With the Cirque Kontiki Collection, this is not the case. Each vibrant color is paired so well with contrasting shimmer that I honestly can't decide which one I like the best.
The Kontiki Collection is limited edition, so be sure to pick it up soon if they catch your eye! Each shade is $13 and can be purchased here.
If you had to pick a favorite, which one is it? Or are you like me, loving all three?
