NYX Love in Florence La Dolce Vita Palette Review and Swatches

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and a great beginning of the month. I am enjoying December so far. Really can't believe the year is almost over. Today I have a very special review for you all. 

As you can tell I will be reviewing the NYX Love in Florence La Dolce Vita palette. The first palette that I ever bought from NYX was the "Champange and Caviar" palette. Since then I have been in love with NYX palettes, trust me I have a whole bunch. I am really not into blue/black eyeshadow shades, but La Dolce Vita really caught my eye.  

 This palette contains silver, blues and grays. Love the color combo they have. Also includes shimmers and matte. I love NYX shades, they have great pigmentation. With this palette you can create so many looks! From simple to very smokey. The greys in the palette really help with creating so many different looks. 



As you can see the shadows are very soft and go on smoothly. I am really impressed with this eyeshadow palette. It is a great item in your collection. And don't you worry I have so many other NYX eyeshadow palette reviews coming soon! 

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments below what is your favorite NYX eyeshadow palette. Thank you all so much for reading! Stay warm and talk to you guys soon!

NEW Revlon Powder Blush in Oh Baby Pink review & swatches

Sunday, December 15, 2013


Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope everyone is doing great. I am enjoying the beautiful snow that has fallen for the past two days. It is like winter wonderland outside! I just don't like the cleaning and shoveling part of the snow ( lets leave my husband to that). 

So you all have heard that Revlon has come out with new blushes, and many other new products. Today I will be reviewing a powder blush that Revlon recently released. This blush was released with the "Cheek Boutique" line. This line also includes a cream blush in CHARMED.

 The shade I picked up was Oh Baby Pink which is a matte peachy pink shade. It goes on very smoothly and silky. Although it is a powder blush, the texture is now powdery at all. I love that about a blush that it has a smooth finish too it. 

This blush lasted me a very long time. I put it on 7 in the morning and it didn't start coming of till like 8pm. I am very impressed with the lasting power, I touch my face a lot during the day and the blush didn't budge at all. 

Also, the pigmentation of this blush is great. You can basically get color with one swipe, also it is very blendable. Oh Baby Pink can be applied very light for a natural shade. 


Over all I am really impressed with this blush. It is long lasting and the pigmentation is great. If you are not a powder fan check out the CREAM BLUSH  in this line. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments below what you think about this blush. 

                                   I hope you all have a great day. Stay warm!

Milani Lipstick in Nude Creme (26) Review & Swatches

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? Yes I have been doing a lot of reviews on lip products, but I can't just help it! I have been loving lip sticks/lip glosses these days. Today I have a really special post for you. 





The other day I was at the drugstore and came across the Milani lipsticks, with so many shades. I picked up Nude Creme right away and instantly fell in love with the shade. This is my first time trying Milani lipsticks and let me tell you one thing I am so glad I picked them up. 

Nude Creme is a nude pink cream shade. I love how this shade will look great on any skin shade. You can wear this year long, also perfect with a smokey eye or a "no makeup" makeup look. So many ways to wear this shade!
The lasting power is great. I had this on for 3-4 hours, with drinking coffee and it left a light tint behind. I did have to reapply it once thorough out the whole day. 

I think this shade is perfect if you are looking for a my lips but better shade. The formula is great, goes on smoothly and is very buttery.

A lot of people don't like the smell of the Milani lipsticks, but I am okay with it. It is not a turn off for me. 


Over all I am really impressed with this lipstick and the shade. It is made for everyone! The formula is great and it stays on for a long time. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried the Milani Lipsticks?  

Thank yo so much for reading! Talk to you guys soon! Stay warm!

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee Review

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope you all are having a great start to a long winter. When winter comes, my lips get really chapped and I am always looking for lipglosses that moisturize. Today I have something for you that does everything I need for my lips in winter. Nyx Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee.
I have heard about the butter glosses a lot, I have read so many blogs raving about these. So I thought to give these a try. And let me tell you I am so glad I did. The butter gloss is very moisturizing and is soft and smooth on the lips. I apply two coats of this on my lips and I am in love with the pigmentation.

The applicator is doe foot, so it applies the product evenly. I love how buttery this gloss is, and it is so shiny. Creme Brulee can be applied alone or on top of your favorite nude lipstick. I love applying it alone on my lips, also I love the soft scent that the gloss has.
Creme Brulee is an amazing gloss to have in your collection. I think I will using this gloss a lot, especially in winter. Over all I am really impressed with this NYX Butter Gloss. I want more shades now!
Let me know in the comments below if you have tried the NYX butter glosses? What are you favorite shades? I hope you all enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading. Have a great day!

NEW Revlon Cream Blush in Charmed Enchantement (150) Review & Swatches

Monday, November 25, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day! It is definitely getting cold here and I am not enjoying it at all. How is the weather where you are? 

Well weather aside today I have a really exciting post for you all. As you all know I love finding new drugstore makeup. These days Revlon has many many new products hitting the stores. Today I have a review of the new cream blushes. I am not a big blush fan, but recently I have been buying and trying some. Cream blushes never appealed to me, but now I am completely in love with Revlon Cream Blushes. 
This cream blush is from Revlon's new collection called "Cheek Boutique", it is a collection for Spring of 2014. This collection has powder blushes as well, but this was the only cream blush available. I am not sure if this is limited edition or permanent. Over the years Revlon has come out with Photoready cream blushes, which I have never tried. 

Lets get into this cream blush. I am really impressed with the simple packaging, I like how it is in a cute little pot. It comes in a cardboard package with all the ingredients listed on the back. 

Charmed Enchantement is a creamy pink rose shade. It goes on smoothly on the cheeks and can be applied with fingers or a brush. I prefer using your fingers because it blends evenly and does not crease. The dry down time is great, and this blush is great for any skin type. 
The blush lasted on my cheeks about 3 hours and then it started fading. It does not leave any color behind though. I like this blush for a natural look, or if you are in a hurry you can just apply it with your fingers and your good to go.
Over all I am really impressed with the new cream blush. I might be picking up more, when they start coming to mass drugstores. If you don't have the photoready cream blushes, this might be a great blush to pick up and try. I hope you all enjoyed this post. 

Let me know in the comments below, how you apply your cream blushes? Thank you so much for reading and talk to you soon!

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Vivacious (120) Review and Swatches

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying life. Today I have a very exciting post for you. Many of you have heard and seen about the new Revlon Lacquer and Matte balms. They are great, and today I am reviewing a lacquer balm for you.

First of all lets talk about the packaging. This is the same packaging as they Revlon Kissable Balm stains. Which I think is great, the tube and the product are the same shade. You get 2.7 grams of product.
These new lacquer balms are very creamy and moisturizing. They apply great, and the pigmentation is amazing. I feel very comfortable wearing the balm, even with my dry lips the lacquer balm still has amazing shine.

Vivacious is a very creamy hot pink shade. I love this shade for anytime of the year. The balm does have a light tingly feeling to it when you apply it.


The application is great, Vivacious lasted me hour and a half. Which is not bad for a creamy balm, I have to reapply very lightly though.
Over all I am really impressed with this balm. The shade is a great hot pink, lasts long and has great moisturizing and is pigmented. What more could you want in a balm?

Have you tried these balms yet? Let me know what shades are your favorite? I hope you all enjoyed this post. Have a great day and as always talk to you soon!
