Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning Eyeshadow Palette

Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99 for 0.30 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows, and it’s a limited edition holiday palette. I found mine at CVS about two weeks ago, and there were only two in the display–both had one eyeshadow broken. I did my best to clean it up and re-press the broken eyeshadow, but you can definitely see that about half was not salvageable.

L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a deep, dark black with silver glitter in multiple sizes. It is very similar to Illamasqua Creator, though Creator photographers more warm-toned on me. It is also comparable to NARS Night Breed, though The Queen’s Ambition is smoother.

L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) contains black and silver glitter suspended in a clear base.  The silver glitter appears to be in one size, while the black glitter comes in multiple sizes, which makes it look a lot like black paint splatter. It looks super, super dark in the bottle–so much so that it also looks a lot like The Queen’s Ambition, but it’s completely different. I don’t have anything like this, and the only polish that reminds me of the effect is China Glaze Tinsel Town, which is black with silver glitter.
