Sneek Peek: Mi Vida Loca ‘True Romance’ palette by Kat Von D

I’ve always seen the Kat Von D True Romance palettes but the colors never really did grab me.  That is, until I saw *this* palette.


Mi Vida Loca True Romance palette by Kat Von D. Exclusive to Sephora. How gorgeous is this?!?

The palette consists of eight (8) bright shades and a sparkly blue eyeliner.  It retails for $34 and is exclusive to Sephora.  I probably won’t get a chance to review it completely until after I take it on my trip to Disney World for Easter but in the meantime I’d like to give my readers a look at this cool palette.  Please enjoy the pictures and swatches while you make plans to descent upon Sephora to score this delicious beauty goodness.

Sneek Peek–Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

A sweet haul from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics at 20% off from their Black Friday sale. I picked colors I thought would be great for Resort 2012 even though my Caribbean cruise isn’t until Christmas 2012 (Resort 2013).

Swatches will go up later this month as I picked up a motherload of stuff from TheBalm that I’m so excited to share with you all!
