China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Manhunt Nail Lacquer ($7.00 MSRP for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bold cobalt blue.” It’s a rich, bold cobalt blue. It has more of a jelly finish from what I can tell, as it’s not quite a cream, but perhaps not a full-on jelly finish either. Though very shimmery in finish, Zoya Song is similar in boldness and overall blue hue. China Glaze Ride the Waves is much lighter (and sheerer). Illamasqua Force is similar but a little more muted. Butter London Blagger is more true blue than cobalt.

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.
