Incoco Dry Nail Applique.

Last week I was honored to write a few posts over on eBeautyDaily for the lovely Christina. One of those incoco.pngposts was all about one of the best product inventions evah - the Incoco Dry Nail Applique!  The more I use these applique's, the more I love them.

Surf on over to eBeautyDaily to read all about them. Please do let me know if you have tried the Dry Nail Applique system from Incoco, and what you like/dislike about them.

If you have not tried these yet, get on over to Walgreens where you can pick up a pack of colored appliques for $5.99 or a French nail pack for $7.99. I picked up a French nail pack this afternoon, and can not wait to try those.

Truly, these are an invention that will only get better and better. Isn't technology + beauty amazing? I can not wait to see what the future holds.


MAC's Royal Assets Eye Palettes.

Have you seen these beauties yet? The Royal Assets eye palettes from MAC, just one of the MAC Cosmetics Holiday Collections this year, are stunning. Not only are these palettes a great way to try out the MAC shadows, it is a great way to play and learn to experiment with colors you would otherwise not use.

There are 4 different palettes. One in a warm collection, one in a cool collection, a metallic palette, and a smokey eye palette. Each palette contains 6 eye shadows, for $36 each.

Royal Assets: 6 Smokey Eyes

Shades are: Rondelle, a light silver with white pearl (frost); Courtly Grey, a cement grey (matte); Knight, a deep grey with silver pearl (veluxe pearl); Maid of Honor, a creamy beige (Satin); Palatial a taupe brown (satin) and Majestic, a neutral grey brown with silver sparkle (lustre). 


Royal Assets: 6 Metallic Eyes

Shades are:  Honeylust, a bronze dipped peach (lustre); Silver Fog, a. intense frosted silver with silver pearl (frost), Stately Black, a rich blue with silver sparkle (lustre); Velvet Lady, a deep black with gold sparkle (velvet); Crème Royale a yellow wheat gold (veluxe pearl) and Manor, a warm brown with green pearl (frost).


Royal Assets: 6 Cool Eyes

Shades are: Shadowy Lady, a darkly veiled plum (matte); Silverwear, a lilac grey (frost); Modern Heir, a grape purple with white pearl (frost); Queen's Jewel, a rich blue with blue pearl (veluxe pearl); Medallion, a frosted light pink (frost) and Trophy Pink, a rich red magenta (frost).


Royal Assets: 6 Warm Eyes 

 Shades are: Sunday Best, an ivory with frost (frost); Star Violet, a eath-touched pinky-brown plum fusion (veluxe pearl); Retrospeck, a beached blonde (lustre); Club, a muted reddish brown duochrome with freen opalescent shimmer (satin); Showstopper, a neutral dark brown and Nobility, a light pink taupe (satin).

Each palette comes with it's own brush, a 213SE Eye Brush. Also, the shadows are enclosed in either a gold or silver antique-inspired compact with a beautiful cream porcelain plaque and royal crown motif. Gorgeous! I told you the packaging was pretty!

I know it is hard to decide on which palette you want and which one(s) you want to give. I say buy them all, glance over each one more than a few times, and then make your decision. And if you are like me, you will probably need to go back to buy more because you won't be able to resist playing with them all.

These limited edition beauties are available now, so you need to get yours and quick.
