MAC Stereo Rose & Comparable Dupes

MAC Stereo Rose from A Fantasy of Flowers collection 2014.

Broken Stereo Rose from Ebay.
I dropped it on my bathroom floor only the day after I got it in the mail as a birthday present from my Dad. :(

A Fantasy of Flowers Stereo Rose on top and Ebay on bottom.

As you can see the top swatch is pinker whereas the bottom swatch has more of an orange undertone.
I think when I where them, I like the shade of the Ebay Stereo Rose a lot more. I love the coral shade and it's a lot more pigmented. When I try on my new Stereo Rose it's not as pigmented and kind of just gives a nice sheen, but I have to apply a couple of layers for the color to show up.

Me wearing Stereo Rose from Ebay. Gorgeous!!

Now let's compare these MSF's to the Milani Baked Blushes....

Ebay Stereo Rose compared to Milani Rose D' Oro. 
Rose D'oro has a bit more of a burnt copper/red tone to it.

Top to bottom:
Luminoso, Fantasy of Flowers Stereo Rose, Rose D' Oro, Ebay Stereo Rose
As you can see, the Rose d'oro is more similar to the ebay msf because it has more orange in it.
Luminoso is more similar to the new MSF in color. Only it does not have the same sheen to it or gold veining throughout. Overall, I'd say these are similar shades but not exactly the same. I don't have anything with the same beautiful sheen that these Stereo Rose msf's give.

Smith & Vandiver Peppermint & Tangerine Soothing Foot Soak

 I just had to share this foot soak with you guys, it is so good!  My Mom first gave me one of these, because she loved it so much. Now I'm addicted! I want to find this brand around me, but it's not sold in any of the stores here. In Oregon it is sold in Fred Meyer's. It smells so good when you open up the little packet.
The peppermint makes your feet tingle and feel minty fresh! Afterwards my feet are so silky smooth.

First fill a basin with warm water, and pour the packet into the tub.

Dip those puppies in and soak your feet for 5 minutes or longer, I usually do for about 10-15 minutes.

To get rid of any dry skin scrub with a pumice stone, rinse, then have a towel nearby to dry.
Slather on some foot cream and go to town with a fresh polish!

Please tell me if you have ever tried anything from this brand, or another foot soak that you like! :)

My Super Bowl Nails!

Decided to wear Seattle Seahawks colors yesterday for the Super Bowl, and guess what they won!
The silver color is Zoya Seraphina and the blue is Zoya Neve! Took this picture in the car on the way to watch the game, so I didn't get any bottle shots sorry!
