Palladio Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet

Hey guys! Today I have a very exciting post on one of the new Palladio matte lipsticks! They were recently released on there website and they come in 9 different shades. I am honestly such a fan of matte lips for the fall time so I was so happy when I found out they have matte lipsticks now too! The color I will be showing you guys today is in the shade Red Carpet which I know this color is going to be a huge hit for the fall and winter time.

Red Carpet is a true rich red color. I do not own any red lipsticks that look this amazing. Is such so dark and almost vampy on the lips. It does have more of a purple under tone, so there is no hint of orange which I LOVE. One thing I noticed right away about this lipstick was how opaque it was. When I applied it on my lips it just glided on so easily and you didn't have to push down, or pack on the lipstick for good color pay off. Since this is a darker matte shade I would recommend applying a lip liner of some sort, or even lining your lips with the lipstick first because it can get a little crazy when applying if your not super careful. Also, normally matte lipsticks are pretty dry, but this one was had a lot of moisture and it didn't set on the fine lines on my lips which made me happy because I was so scared that it would set into the cracks but it didn't. And because it is so moisturizing, the lipstick its self is made with safflower oil which helps lock in that moisture. 

And I must say, I am in love with the packaging. It's just a black matte packaging which I do prefer compared to the other lipsticks that are in the silver packaging. Black just makes everything look so classy and looks amazing in my acrylic organizers. 

Overall I am very pleased with this lipstick and I hope to purchase more in the future because I am in love. I would highly recommend this shade for the fall and winter time. I think it would look good on any skin tone. You can purchase this lipstick as well as the other matte shades at http://www.palladiobeauty.com/ and they are only $7.00.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Strawberry Milk & French Fries Swatches

Hey everyone today I wanted to share with you one of my all time favorite products by NYX and they are the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. I own about 4 or 5 shades so far and today I will be sharing with you Strawberry Milk and French Fries. Out of all the eye pencils I have tried from varies of different brands, the NYX ones are by far my favorite. 

Strawberry Milk is considered a pearly pink and the color really does remind me of strawberry milk. I find this one to be a little bit more sheer compared to French Fries, so when I was applying it all over my lids I really had to pack it on. 

French Fries is considered a pearly golden olive. I love this one because its very opaque and the color has a beautiful golden shimmer to it and its perfect for the fall time. 

I like to wear these as a base or if I am really lazy I like to use them by themselves. If you are using them by themselves I would recommend a primer because they do tend to crease just a little, so if you do not want it to crease I would say add a primer and it will help last all day. You can purchase them anywhere that NYX is sold and they are either $5.00 or under $5.00 so they are super affordable. Let me know what your favorite shade is!
