NEW Wet N Wild Balm Stain in Pinky Promise

12/20/2013


Hey girls, I have a few exciting post coming your way! I finally found the new Wet N Wild Balm Stain. I was so excited that Wet N Wild began making these because I am such a huge fan of Balm's. This one is in the shade Pinky Promise.

Pinky Promise is a light pink with a little coral in it. I found this one to be very moisturizing and applies smoothly. It is very pigmented, but the color is very close to my actual lip color so it just makes my lips look very soft. I think this is such a beautiful color and I have nothing bad to say about this lip balm. 

Overall I would give this one a A. I found these at Shopko, so hopefully you can come across these soon!

Maybelline Limited Edition Color Tattoo in Nude Pink


Hey everyone! I have a quick review on one of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo in Nude Pink. This one is limited edition. I am such a sucker for these color tattoo's, and when I saw they came out with 3 more, I had to get them! Plus the 3 new ones they released are all Matte!

Nude Pink is exactly what the name says. It's a light nude pink that reminds me of such a great lip color! Anyways, it is a matte finish which is amazing for the lids. It reminds me of also the new Naked 3 palette, it goes with the whole rose gold theme. I am seriously in love with this one. Just like the other color tattoo's, it applies easily and is also very easy to blend. It's a perfect all of the lid type color. If you can find this baby would totally pick it up if I were you. 

Over all I would give this baby a A+++.

Studio Gear Holiday Palette

12/06/2013


Hey everyone today I have a review on the Studio Gear Holiday palette. It comes with 4 eye shadows and 1 blush. I am in love with the packaging of this palette. It comes in a case that has purple and yellow all over it, and the palette it self is black and grey. The one thing I have always loved about Studio Gear products is the amazing classy packaging. 

The eye shadows that come in this palette are Platinum which is a light silver, Frost which is more of a light blue, Coal which is a deep gray and Glimmer which is a gold shimmer. I found the shadows to be smooth. I didn't find them to be chalky. My favorite of the 4 would be coal. But all 4 colors are perfect to make a great smokey holiday look.

The blush is Snowy Glow which is a beautiful peach shade. It has great pigmentation and is probably one of my new favorite blushes. Over all I would give this palette a B+. 

You can purchase this palette at http://studiogearcosmetics.com/shop/eye-make-up/holiday-smokey-eye-palette/ for only $25, you can also use the code SGHOLIDAY to receive an additional 10% off. 

*this product was giving to me for review, but all opinions are my own.*

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

11/30/2013


Hey everyone, I have an exciting post today on the new Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay. I was so freaking excited when they told us they were releasing this bad boy. So of course, I just had to get it right away. It is currently sold out on the Urban Decay website but Ulta and Sephora will be releasing it in December. The Naked 3 comes with 12 new shades with the rose hue neutrals. 

  • Strange: pale neutral pink in a matte finish
  • Dust: pale metallic pink shimmer

I am seriously in love with this palette. I love all of the shades and they are all so smooth applying and extremely pigmented. My favorite shades from this palette are the matte ones because I am a huge sucker for matte shades. Compared to my Naked one palette I think I like this one just a tad more just because I love the rose hue tints in each of the shades. I would highly highly recommend this palette. You can buy it for $52.00 from http://www.urbandecay.com/urban-decay/eye-makeup/naked3/409.html

I would give this palette a A+.

Wet N Wild Trio in Twinkle and Loving It!


Hey loves, here's another quick review on yet another new Wet N Wild Holiday 2013 trio in Twinkle and Loving It! Normally people wait and save the best for last, but this one is the worst out of all the trio's I had purchased.

The colors pay off was not well with this one at all. It was mainly just the glitter with hardly any pigmentation. I was hoping the blue shade in the middle was going to be amazing and bright but it turned out to be a complete waste. And as well as the purple shade. And the bottom color I don't even know what it was supposed to be. It turned out to be this brownish color and it doesn't even look pretty. 

I would not recommend this one. Overall I would give it a F----.

Wet N Wild Trio in Drinking a Glass of Shine

11/14/2013


Hey everyone, I have another review on one of the new Wet N Wild Holiday 2013 collection and this one is in Drinking a Glass of Shine. This one would be considered the "Smokey Eye" trio with the grey and the black. 

This one comes with a white glitter which shows up more like a clear shade with glitter, which I was hoping it would have been more white then clear. Then the middle shade is the grey with with a mixture of colorful glitter. I thought this one was extremely pretty, but it did lack the pigmentation, and it was also a pain to try and get the color to show. Then the bottom is a black with a mixture of different glitters. I love that the black did show up, but it wasn't as pigmented as I was hoping for.

I didn't care for this trio like I did the others just for the fact there was lack of glitter, and with the black the texture wasn't as smooth as the others. Overall I would give this trio a D+.

Wet N Wild Trio in I'm Not a Blonde Glitz!

11/11/2013


Hey everyone, I have a quick review on another one of the new Wet n Wild Holiday 2013 trio in I'm Not a Blonde Glitz! I was most excited when I saw this one on the display because HELLO, gold glitter!! I am such a fan of gold glitter so I couldn't wait to take this baby home with me.

The top glitter is a brown glitter with a mixture of different color glitters, the middle is a copper shade with with light gold shimmer, but when swatched you can't see much of it, its more of just a copper shade only. Then of course is the bottom shade, the gold glitter! I was very disappointed with this one because the gold doesn't look as good swatched as it does in the pan. The only one that was some what pigmented in this trio was the copper shade. They are still smooth and apply easily just like the others, but the pigmentation wasn't great.

Overall I would give this trio a C-. I love the texture, but the color just wasn't there like the others.

Wet N Wild Trio in Glimmer in Your Eye

11/10/2013


Hey girls, here is another one of the new trio's by Wet N Wild for there Holiday 2013 collection. This one is Glimmer in Your Eye which is the green trio. Green glitters are seriously amazing for the Holiday time!

It comes with a light green which is almost like a lime green, the middle shade is a medium color green, and the bottom shade is a black shade. They all have mixtures of glitter in each of them. The pigmentation was amazing for the lighter green, which I was very impressed with. I was also shocked with how pigmented the black glitter was. I didn't think it would show up that well. Sadly, the middle green was not very pigmented.

Just like the other trio's it was very easy to remove all of the glitter. Overall I would give this trio a B. I was hoping the darker green would have appeared more, but overall, I love how easy it is to apply these and remove them.

I was extremely impressed with how pigmented these were! I didn't think there would be any color pay off, but I was wrong. It was amazing.

Overall I would give this trio a A-.

Hey loves, I have a quick review on the Silent Era Film trio by Wet N Wild. This is from the 2013 Fall collection which is called Be A Runway Beauty. I know I am a little late on reviewing this, but its better late then never ;D

I love the shades that they paired together. It's so different, which I love. All shades are perfect for the fall. The brow bone color is my favorite since I am huge natural lover. The other shades were fairly pigmented and not chalky.

Over all I would give this trio a C+.

Hey girls today I have a review on one of the new Limited Edition Wet N Wild palette from the Fergie collection. This one is in Bulletproof Glide. I have always been a huge fan of Wet N Wild Eyeshadows, so I was excited to see them release a grey palette. 

This palette comes with 5 eyeshadows. It comes with a white matte shade, a dark shimmery grey, a light shimmery grey, a matte brown/green shade and in the middle a shimmery black. Some of the colors were more pigmented then the others. I found the lighter shades to not be pigmented at all. 

Overall I would give this palette a C since some of the shades were a hit and miss with the pigmentation. The shades didn't show up chalky or anything either which is also really nice.

LORAC Unzipped Palette Swatches & Review

11/02/2013


Hey loves, I know it has been a while since I made any blog posts, with the moving and everything it has been really hard to take photos and do reviews, so the last week I did a lot of hauling, so now it is time for a bunch of swatches and reviews of a lot of products. The Ulta near me finally opened so I went a little crazy that last few weeks and picked up these amazing beauty.

This is the LORAC Unzipped palette. If you are sucker for natural shades like I am, this would be a holy grail for you. I went to Ulta to pick up the LORAC Pro Palette, but ended up loving these shades a lot better. The set I got came with a mini primer and as well as the palette which includes 10 netural shade eyeshadows which have a mix of Matte and Shimmery shades.


I love the packaging a lot with this palette. It is nice and sleek and I love how it has the zipper on the palette. It makes traveling a lot easier. 


So this palette comes with Undercover which is a matte white, Unbelievable which is a shimmery pink, Unattainable which is a shimmery gold/pink, Unconditional which is a matte taupe shade, Unbridled which is a matte red/brown, Undiscovered which is a gold shimmery, Unreal with a light pink shimmer, Uncensored which is a brown shimmer, Unspoken which is a matte brown, and Untamed which is a dark shimmery brown.

I thought the pigmentation for these eye shadows were pretty good. And I love the texture of these eyeshadows, they are not chalky and apply so smoothly. All together with the mini primer this palette was $40.00 which is such a great price for what you pay.

Overall I would give this palette a A. It is literally perfect and I can't wait to use this all the time.

Palladio Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Metallics

10/22/2013


Hey girls, I have a review on the Palladio Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Metallics. I was excited to receive this trio because the colors are seriously so perfect for the fall time! I also love the fact that this is a baked eyeshadow so it looks super pretty in the packaging ;)

Metallics comes with a gold, a orange/cooper, and a dark brown. The texture of these were very nice. I found that they were not chalky at all and they do apply very easy as well. I a lot of the times baked eyeshadows are a huge hit and miss, but I actually really enjoy the formula of this baked eyeshadow. The colors were also fairly pigmented as well. So for the look all you would do is apply the middle shade on the lid, the darker shade in the crease and the lighter shade for the brow bone. 

Overall I would give this trio a B+. You can purchase this at http://www.palladiobeauty.com/collections/eyes/products/baked-eye-shadow-trios and as well as Sally's and Ulta for only $8.00.

Wet N Wild Trio in Grays Matter

10/16/2013


Hi everyone I have another review on one of the new Wet N Wild Trio's in Grays Matter. This trio is from the Fall 2013 collection, which the collection is called Be A Runway Beauty. I was in love when I found this trio at Walgreen's. This one comes with Grays in all different tones.

Grays Matter comes with a light gray for the browbone, a purple gray for the crease and a dark blue gray for the eye lid. I thought the color selection was amazing. I love the different tones of gray to make a beautiful smoky look. The colors were all fairly pigmented and were not chalky. A lot of the times with drug store eye shadows there is a lot of lack of pigmentation but I thought this one was pretty good with the pigmentation end.

Overall I would give this trio a B+. It's probably one of my new favorites from Wet n Wild.

NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie


Hey loves, I am very excited that I finally got my hands on some of the  NYX Butter Glosses. I ended up picking up 6 of them during the time Ulta had NYX products 40% off, so I had to take advantage of this sale. The review I have for today is on the shade Maple Blondie. This one really caught my eye on the website. I am such a sucker for pink glosses.

Description on a butter gloss:
"Buttery soft and silky smooth, our scrumptious new Butter Lip Gloss tastes as sweet as a sugar cookie—and makes your lips look downright luscious. Swipe it on alone or over your favorite lipstick for creamy sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky"


Maple Blondie is a light pink color with a hint of peach. It applies so nicely and last such a long time. I love the texture of these butter glosses. They were very pigmented and does not dry out my lips at all. I also love the packaging as well. The outside matches the actual color very closely. I would recommend this one for sure. 

Overall I would give this butter gloss a A. I don't have anything negative to say about it. You can purchase these anywhere where NYX is sold. (Ulta, Nyxcosmetics, Target Etc)

Palladio Eyeshadow Quad in Spell Bound

10/07/2013


Hey girls today I have a review on the Palladio Eyeshadow Quad in Spell Bound. I was lucky enough to receive some of these products from Palladio to review. Spell Bound is a purple quad which is perfect for the fall time. 

Spell Bound comes with a light purple, a purple/pink, a medium shimmery purple, and a dark purple. I found that the light shade is great for the brow bone, the purple/pink is great for the all over the lid, and the dark purple is amazing for the crease. I found the shades to all be pretty good. All shades were pigmented and they didn't apply chalky at all. And there wasn't a lot of fall out either. 

These quads are $8.00, which for decent eyeshadows that's such a great deal! I tried a lot of Covergirl quads which were horrible, but these Palladio ones wipe the Covergirl ones out of the park. I recommend these ones over those. I also thought the quality was better then a lot of the Maybelline quads I have. 

Overall I would give this palette a B+. You can purchase this palette at http://www.palladiobeauty.com/collections/eyes/products/eye-shadow-quads and also at Sally's Beauty supply.


*All my opinions are my own and receiving these products does not reflect the outcome of my review*

E.L.F Maleficent Nail Polish Trio


Hey everyone, I was very happy to find the E.L.F Villains Collection at my local Walgreen's. I picked up one of the palettes and also the set of nail polishes. It comes with 12 nail polishes and 3 from each Villain. Here I have the Maleficent nail polishes. 

Gina Girl: Is a dark purple nail polish mixed with purple glitter. I was not a fan of this one. It looked amazing in the bottle but when swatched on my nails it looked horrible. It would look much better with a black nail polish as a base and this shade on top.

Mod Mauve: Is a mauve pink shade with a brown tint. I really like this one because it is a perfect shade for the fall time. I thought this one was very opaque and you only needed two coats.

Bubble Gum Pink: It's just like the name, its a bubble gum pink. Just like Mod Mauve this one was very opaque as well. 

Overall, for the price this is a decent set of nail polishes. I mean 12 nail polishes for $10.00. You don't expect some amazing nail polishes, but I was very pleased with these 3 except for the Gina Girl. But overall  I would give this trio a C. Gina Girl: D Mod Mauve: B+ Bubble Gum Pink: B+

Wet N Wild Trio in Camera Obscura

10/01/2013


Hey girls, today I have a review on the new Wet N Wild Trio in Camera Obscura. This trio is part of the new Fall 2013 collection, which the collection is called Be A Runway Beauty. I am such a sucker for these trios whenever Wet N Wild releases them. I have to get them all. I loved the ones in this collection. It comes with 3 new trios and 3 old trios.

Camera Obscura comes with a matte light brown for the browbone, and light orange shade for the crease, and a dark blue. I found the colors in this trio to because extremely pretty. I love how the added the lighter shades with the dark blue. Plus the light orange shade gives a nice pop in the trio. 

The colors were fairly pigmented and were not chalky at all. I felt like the the dark blue showed up as more of a black color then a blue color. I thought the brow bone shade was beautiful and I feel like I will use it a lot for just a everyday use. 

I would give this palette a B. If the pigmentation was a little better it would have earned a A all the way!

Desert Festival comes with 5 shades. It comes with a matte tan color, a matte orange shade, a matte gray shade as well with a shimmery dark gray and lastly a shimmery light orange. I found that most of the shades were pretty pigmented. I didn't find the colors to be too chalky or anything either. I was actually really impressed because I know some of this palettes are a hit and miss.

Overall I would give this palette a B. The pigmentation would have been better, but overall I thought it was pretty good for a drugstore palette. I would recommend this one to everyone since like I said, it's perfect for the fall.

OFRA Cosmetics Lipstick in #109 Toffee + GIVEAWAY!

9/29/2013


Hey loves, today I have one last OFRA Cosmetics review for you. This time its on a lipstick. So far I have been really impressed with OFRA Cosmetics. The lipstick I have is #109 Toffee. Most of the colors are named after numbers. 

#109 is a nice mauve pinkish brown shade. It reminds me a lot of the lipstick Fast Play by MAC. The texture of the lipstick was really nice. It was actually pretty moisturizing and applied smoothly. The lasting power was pretty good for this lipstick. It didn't last as long as my MAC lipstick, but it did last for up to 4 hours. These also are only $13.00 and also has the color shown on the bottom.

I would give this lipstick a A-.
