Maybelline Color Molton Eyeshadow Duo in Midnight Morph


Hey everyone I have an exciting review on the new Maybelline Color Molten Eyeshadow duo's. I have been looking for the new products and was only able to come a crossed the eyeshadows for now. When I started playing with the shadows, I was not expecting the texture to be how it was. I didn't read the display nor really research too much into the product until I started to use it.

The texture is bouncy, almost like the Maybelline bouncy blushes. It is a cream to powder finish, which it is a little hard to apply using a brush so I would recommend just using your fingers and blending onto the eyelid. 

The duo I got was Midnight Morph which I thought it was the perfect duo featuring a light beige shade as well as a darker blackish blue color. I love the shimmer in each shade. I thought the pigmentation would have been worse considering the type of product it is, but I was very surprised with how pigmented each color actually was. They were a little patchy so you may need to really pack on the color if you want a very rich color look. 

Overall I wasn't super impressed, I still may pick up another duo just so I have more colors. You can find this duo at Walgreen's and I believe it was $7.99. I am assuming these will be hitting places like Walmart and Target which may lower the price down a little.

Lily Lolo Laid Bare Eye Palette Swatches & Review


Hey everyone, today I have an exciting post on a palette by Lily Lolo. This is the Laid Bare Eye Palette, and it comes with some of the most beautiful everyday eye colors. Lily Lolo has some amazing products from eye makeup, to face makeup and lip products! You can purchase Lily Lolo in the US as well as in the UK, so if you are interested in this palette, you can totally get your hands on it no matter where you live, which I love! 

The Laid Bare Eye Palette comes with 8 different shades:

  • Stark Naked- which is a matte nude color with a hint of pinky beige
  • Au Natural- which is a shimmery pink nude
  • Skinny Dip- which is a shimmery golden beige
  • Shy Away- which is a smokey taupe color
  • Lady Godiva- which is a shimmery rich gold
  • Birthday Suit- which is a matte grey color (which I am in love with the name of this shadow)
  • Exhibitionist- which is a matte olive color
  • Exposed- which is a demi-matte charcoal color
I honestly love all of the names in the palette. I also love that there is a verity of different finishes from mattes to shimmers. I am a huge fan of each finish so its nice to be able to choose which one I would like to use. I also love the colors. Some of them remind me of a few shades in the Naked 3 palette. I was very impressed with how pigmented these colors were. when applying them, I didn't have to pack the color on because they were so pigmented. I think the shimmery shades stood out the most to me in this palette.

I love the packaging because its nice and slim and will be very easy to use while traveling. And since the colors are such perfect every day shades, I know I will be using this palette a lot. And it is a palette I would highly recommend to you. They do have another palette that I now need to get my hands on!

If you are interested in this palette it can be found at http://www.lilylolo.us/ for $34.00.

The Perfect Red Lip


Hey loves today I have an exciting post on some of my favorite red lipsticks. During the winter time, and especially during the holidays, I am a huge fan of red lips. So I thought I would share with you some of my favorites. I tried to choose a few drug store lipsticks, as well as some MAC lipsticks. So if you are on a budget, some of these would be perfect for you!

  • Milani Lipstick in Red Label- is consider to be a bright blue red color. I have always been a huge fan of Milani lipsticks and this one is amazing. It is so flattering on the lips and only retails for $5.49 at www.walgreens.com
  • Palladio Lipstick in Red Carpet- which is a beautiful matte red shade. I am in love with this color because it is matte, but its very creamy, so its not drying on the lips at all. And its only $7.00 at www.palladiobeauty.com

  • MAC Lipstick in Salon Rouge- this is from this years holiday collection. Its a deep red matte color with a little hint of a berry undertone. I am also a sucker for the packaging. This lipstick is $17.50 at www.nordstrom.com
