Keep me away, eBay.

I had a small shopping shaped incident the other day after looking around on eBay. I've been after the China Glaze Kaleidoscope collection for a while and one of my regular sellers had several available at very good prices, so it seemed rude not to:

The I also couldn't resist a few of the new Crackles from China Glaze either, these were cheaper than they would be from my local Sally's and I won't have to kill any incompetent shop staff to get my hands on them:

Next week I am off to Spain so hopefully I will also have a delightful Kiko shaped bundle to show off on my return! Here's my wish list at the moment, we shall see how I do with it:

Pasedena Purple

Another gorgeous Nubar varnish, I get most of my Nubar polishes from Nubar Nailz who have a decent selection at pretty good prices, their customer service and super fast delivery are great.

UD 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil

The new 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil from Urban Decay is essentially an eyeshadow version of their 24/7 liners (which I love). Such is my love for the liners I decided that I had to try out these new pencils too. I chose Rehab and delinquent, a neutral taupe and a gorgeous purple with a slight shimmer.

I haven't had much of a chance to play with these yet and have only used each once for a speedy look for work. So far I love them though, they apply really easily and truly do glide on, then they stay put for the whole day.

My one issue with them is that they dry VERY fast so if you want to blend them you need to do it right away, it's possible though and what they lack in blend-ability after the first few minutes they really make up for in staying power and colour payoff.

i can definitely see me ending up with more of these in the future.

Frostbitten Flakies

Considering how much I love Frostbite by China Glaze and how much I love Nfu Oh flakies, I was a bit disappointed with this:

I had a small incident while attempting to rescue a bottle of whisky from the top shelf of my larder the other day, so now I have tiny stumpy nubbins:

They're wearing the Sky Sparkle they had on when they broke and a layer of Barry M Effects.
