Hi loves, I am so excited to share with you gives this new eye liner collection by MAKE UP FOR EVER. They recently collaborated with Charli XCX to bring you the new Aqua XL Eye Pencils. I wanted to share with you guys my thoughts and swatches of these pencils before they are released. These will be available in May and retail for $21.00 each. Right now Sephora has a set available for VIB Rouge members and it includes 4 of Charli XCX Festival Faves, and it retails for $49.00, which you can purchase at www.sephora.com. Now onto the shades!

There is different finishes when it comes to the eye liners. There is matte, diamond, iridescent, metallic and satin. So you are bound to find a shade that you love. My favorites are the matte shades.
  • M-10 which is a matte black
  • D-12 which is a diamond black 
  • M-14 which is a matte dark grey
  • M-16 which is a matte white (I am in love with this shade. It is going to be perfect to the water line to make your eyes pop)
  • S-20 which is a satin dark blue
  • M-22 which is a matte cobalt blue
  • I-24 which is a iridescent medium blue
  • M-26 which is a matte baby blue
  • M-30 which is a matte mint green (I am in love with this shade as well. It is perfect to give a pop of color to your look)
  • I-32 which is a iridescent medium green
  • I-34 which is a iridescent light green
  • I-36 which is a iridescent gold/green 
  • M-40 which is a matte yellow 
  • ME-42 which is a beautiful metallic gold (this one is my favorite out of all the shades)
  • S-50 which is a satin taupe 
  • M-60 which is a matte deep burgundy
  • D-62 which is a diamond brownie color
  • M-80 which is a matte deep purple
  • I-90 which is a iridescent medium purple
  • M-92 which is a matte lilac purple (another one of my favorite shades)
I am seriously in love with these eye liners. There is so many shades to choose from and the color pay off is incredible. All of the shades are very pigmented and are easy to apply. They are water proof and they do not budge at all. I had to scrub my arm in order to get the eye liners off. I have a pretty watery water line and these last all day long. I am so excited to wear some of the brighter shades to Rock USA this year. I highly recommend picking up a couple when they do release!

PR Sample|Affiliated Links

Hi loves, I am so so excited about todays post because it includes a giveaway! Elizabeth Arden sent me over four of their new Moisturizing Lipsticks, and they sent me a extra set to giveaway to one of you guys! This is my first time trying out anything by Elizabeth Arden so I was really excited. I do have four  shades to share with you and they are vary in color. 

The packaging on these lipsticks are extremely beautiful. It has the most beautiful gold packaging that I have ever came a crossed. I love having these on display because they are so pretty. I also love that the lipsticks have the logo engraved into the lipstick. The four shades I have to share with you are:

  • Marigold which is a beautiful orange shade. I do not own many orange lipsticks, so this will be a perfect shade for the summer. 
  • Wildberry which is a beautiful mid tone rose pink. This one is my favorite out of the four. I think it's a perfect everyday shade. 
  • Pink Pink which is a light pink shade. This one has more of a frost finish.
  • Valentine which is a beautiful cool toned red. 
I found these lipsticks to be very moisturizing. All of them had more of a satin finish except for Pink Pink which is more of a frost finish. I also thought they were all very opaque as well. The texture is very smooth which makes it really easy to apply. These lipsticks retail for $25.00 and can be currently purchased at www.macys.com

Now onto the giveaway, you must be 18 years or older to enter, or have your parents permission to join. This giveaway is only available to those who live in the U.S. This giveaway will end on May 4th.

New It Cosmetics You Sculpted Contour Palette Review & Swatches

PR Sample|Affiliated Link

Hi loves, I am so excited for this time of the year since this is the time companies come out with their new Summer products, which is my favorite time of the year for makeup. It Cosmetics recently came out with a new contour palette and this is the You Sculpted Universal Contouring Palette for Face and Body. Contour palettes have been huge the last couple of years, and I was so excited to see what I got this one because the shades are universal for both light and dark skin tones. Most of the times, contour palettes either cater to one skin tone over the other, but this palette has many great light contour shades, and great deep contour shades as well. So if your very fair or very dark, there is a shade in here for you. This palette is currently at www.ulta.com and retails for $40.00. 

This palette comes with 4 contour shades and two highlight shades. The lightest shade in the palette is Soft Contour, then you have Light Contour, Medium Contour and Deep Contour. Since I do have a fair complexion I will be sticking with the Soft Contour and Light Contour for now. But I think with the Deep Contour shade it would be a great color to create a beautiful shadow on light skin. It also comes with two highlights which is Matte Highlight and Radiance Highlight. My favorite of the two is the Radiance Highlight. 

The texture of the contour shades is incredible. They have a very buttery consistency. They have anti-aging collagen and silk which helps make the products very easy to blend. I find that these feel a lot better then the Kat Von D Shade & Light palette, and thats usually my go to contour palette. I think the highlight shades have a great buttery texture too. They shades are very pigmented so you will want to use a light hand at first. This is honestly a great overall palette.

I also love the packaging. Its a very pretty reflective silver and the palette isn't extremely big either. It's a little bigger then my hand and it is also thin as well so it makes it very easy to travel with compared to a lot of other contour palettes. I highly recommend this palette if you are looking for a great all in one contour/sculpting palette. I think you would really enjoy it as well! I am just so in love with the quality. This will for sure be my go-to palette this summer.
