I saw this eye shadow from Cover Girl Trunaked Roses palette mentioned as a dupe for the  Urban Decay Naked 3.
I can see it.  I really prefer this formulation because the shimmer is not so over the top.  The colors are lovely & some of my favorite shades  -  perfect to coordinate with this year's Color of the Year.
 There is a nice silky feel to these and so easy to use - for under $10 very handy and I will not get bent out of shape if the airline destroys this!
This mineral lip gloss from Ulta is a great product.  The Rose Garnet color is perfect for all seasons and is just the right amount of moisture  ~  this definitely needs a 'back up' so I'll buy 2 more!
The Brilliant Color Lip Gloss from Ulta in Guava is very similar in color and would be a good back up.  The same product in "Cupcake" was too pink so I gave that away.

I think this is a great polish for Valentines Day~Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Queen of Hearts:
I use a nail polish dryer to speed things along and help set the topcoat:

I wanted to refresh the master bath and found 2 different items at different stores but all things coordinated just right!  I like the valance so it stays.
I found a new waste basket that coordinates with the above colors:
This 3 tier organizer was under $10 and fits nicely in this space.

The grandchildren are spending the weekend so I will roast a turkey on Sunday along with "cheesy" potatoes as GD calls my potato casserole:

  11. I love the shadows! I have the Urban Decay, but also like the Nudes and other choices from companies, which dont break the bank! The pink shadows are lovely. I also love the Revlon Gel, and I think you got me started on those, that red is pretty!
