When the contents don't match the packaging

There's nothing better than being able to go to a store and swatch to your heart's content to find that perfect shade of eyeshadow or lipstick. Unless you're looking for something specific, it can be quite fun and maybe even relaxing. But what about when we have to purchase something online? Maybe a special online sale, or a brand that's not available in your local store. You hope that the packaging shows the colour accordingly and that maybe there's a blogger or two that have swatches for you to refer to.

When the package and the inner contents don't match, sometimes it's a pleasant surprise. Most of the time, it's a disappointment.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil: Swatch + Review

We all have our go-to makeup looks. Mine happens to be a winged liner using none other than my Kat Von D Tattoo liner. If you haven't read my post about this liner, it's my holy grail. It lasts all day like no other liner. However, I've recently discovered a pencil liner that's also been giving me all day results.

Alpabet Nails:Joker's Wild

Revlon Joker's Wild

If you ask me to do a colour association with the word joker, I would say green. I automatically think of the beloved Batman villain.  But Revlon's Joker's Wild is a far cry from being a villain.

Joker's Wild is a beautiful coral/orange cream that works so good for summer. If you think the colour screams for attention, it does. But it's not begging for attention. It's flattering. It goes with just about everything. It's a wild card.

This was fully opaque with 2 coats and lasted nearly a week before tip wear and crackling. The polish has the double-wide brush that I love and dries in a reasonable time period (just a couple minutes - and obviously don't bang your nail for the next hour).
