Spa Ritual - Native Rock

Spa Ritual is a brand I just came across from surfing the net. It's DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene free. It says Vegan as well but I don't quite get it when it's for nail polish??? This summer I've been loving lighter shades, like beige, light mauve or lilac color. This is probably my favorite color for this summer.

It makes my fingers look longer and this color is just very elegant. Lasts on my nails for about 5 or 6 days.

Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

Urban Decay has some good quality eye shadow palettes lately. The latest one is the 15 year Anniversary Eyeshadow collection. 15 colors and has very nice packaging. At first I wasn't sure whether I should get this because of the bulky box. Some colors are not the usual color I would use, like Omen (fushia) , Junkshow (blue iridescent color), Deep End (turquoise), and Evidence (deep blue). It's nice to try some new colors. I like the packaging, unlike their usual heavy duty paper box. $55 is quite a good deal for their highly pigmented shadows. My friend told me there's a smell on their shadows. I don't know if it will bother some people but I can't really smell it.
You will expect to have finger prints on the box. The details on the side are nice. 
Here's a look on the color:
There are many other bloggers who did very nice job on the swatches, so I won't spend the time to do that. I do like several colors from the palette, like Midnight Rodeo, Half Truth and Deeper. If you've read my blog entries, you will notice they are very similar to my other neutral color palettes... I guess it will be awhile before I spend again on an eye palette, maybe will till Christmas and see what deals are out there.

If you do plan on buying this, you can order online via Sephora, and use MrRebates to get some rebates back. I think I got 6% back, so it's a good deal if you don't mind waiting for the shipment.
