The Colors of the Black Rainbow - Favorite Beauty Product's by Color!

The Colors of the Rainbow Tag is a cute little idea I saw pop up in my reader feed. The premise of the tag is to pick a favorite beauty or fashion item for each color of the rainbow. I'm not sure where it originated from, maybe youtube? I haven't watched a beauty community video there in ages so call me clueless. As I was shuffling through my stash for the color spectrum the boy was making a comment about how we're "basically just goth teenagers"...that as I was pining over the new Nine Inch Nails record and all the rock shows i wanted to attend this summer I thought...maybe I'm more metal and darkside than cupcakes and rainbow' I turned my version in to The BLACK RAINBOW. My favorite's in Black. I also did the original tag too :)
B - Black Leather Jacket's (Forever 21 Capsule, Nasty Gal, & ASOS)
L - Black Spiked Jewelry & Accessories (gloves i made, ebay, local boutiques, nOir, Shop Lately)
A - Black Lace & Fishnet Makeup Brush Holders (how i made them here)
C - Dinair Airbrush Makeup System in Black. This little machine is the bees knees for theatrical/halloween makeup and stenciling.
K - MAC Black Black Pigment & Black Glitter. Intensely sooty and strong in pigmentation, for a serious black eye there's nothing better..except when glitter comes to play :)

Lioele Korean BB Cream's Full Line Review & 15% Off

Lioele is my first real experience with Korean Beauty, they carry an extensive range of authentic Korean Cosmetics & Skincare. With a U.S.standalone store in Texas this means super fast shipping and it's free over $50. One of their most popular items is the Beauty Balms that happen to be all the rage in Makeup right now. I was disappointed in almost all of the U.S. BB/CC cream's I've tried, they were nothing more than glorified moisturizers or primers. I now know why I was left underwhelmed. They totally suck compared to the Korean ones! Every single one of these Lioele BB's were wonderful. Each Cream is formulated a little differently to target your specific skin need. I was sent two of Lioele's full size BB's to review and in my order they included samples of the rest so I was able to try them all out. Lioele was also kind enough to offer my readers a 15% off discount, use code: monroemisfitlioele at checkout. Because you WILL want to buy one of these :)
