Milani Baked Matte Blushes in Bella Rosa & Delizioso Pink review & swatches

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying the sunshine. Yes you can see with my previous posts that I have been obsessed with Milani cosmetics. And if you follow me on instagram (drugstoredreamer) you know how much I haul that stuff!

So today I will be reviewing the two new matte blushes that Milani came out with for their Spring 2014 collection. I have never tried the regular blushes from Milani, so this is my first time trying Milani blushes and let me tell you I am in love! 






First of all let me say that these blushes is great, they go on soft and smoothly. They are pigmented very heavily so you have to have a light hand for these. Easily blendable on your skin and the matte finish looks great.

Also I love the sleek packaging of these, it has two compartments. The first carries the blush and the second one has a built in mirror and a little blush brush. 






Bell Rosa is a bright reddish pink shade with no shimmer. If you blend it really well into your skin it almost looks like you are blushing. I love how this blush is great for every skin tone, you can build it up if you like a really pink cheek. 



Delizioso Pink is a light pink shade with blue undertones. I love how they incorporated the blue undertones with pink. It just gives pink a whole new meaning. Like the other blushes, this is also very pigmented and you need to have a light hand with it. 




Over all I am really impressed with these matte baked blushes. They have great pigmentation and the shades are just amazing.
 Now I want to try more Milani blushes. Let me know in the comments below which is your favorite shade? Once again thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day.

Maybelline Dare To Go Nude Spring 2014: Color Tattoos in Storke of Midnight & Beige-ing Beauty review & swatches

Monday, March 17, 2014

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? Spring is finally here and I hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful weather! So we all know that Maybelline came out with LIMITED EDITION eyeshadow quads and color tattoos for Spring of 2014. The line is called Dare To Go Nude. In the collection they have six new limited edition color tattoos, I reviewed two of them here and today I have another two to review for you all. 


I have been wearing these for a couple of weeks now, as always the color tattoos are great. I am really enjoying the nude selection of shades they have in this collection. I have use the tattoos as bases and also have worn them alone. They perform amazing, with or without primer.

Stroke Of Midnight is a black shade with lots of silver shimmer. It is great to use as a eyeliner. I am not a really big fan of the staying power of this shade. After a couple of hours of wearing it, it does crease even with a primer on. This shade will be great for a smokey eye look, you can use it as a base. 


Beige-ing Beauty is a silver & golden shimmer filled beige shade. This is great for a natural look, I have worn this all by itself on my lids and just some eyeliner and it looks great. 


Over all I am really impressed with these two shades. I would recommend Stroke of Midnight if you are looking for a great black cream eyeshadow. 



I hope all of you enjoyed this post, the last two of the limited edition color tattoos review will be coming soon. Thank you so much for reading. I hope all of you have a great day!

Milani Lipstick in Fruit Punch review & swatches

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? Wow! What a beautiful day today is, it is currently 55 degrees out and I am loving it! I can see the grass and the snow is melting. As you all know I have been in love with Milani lipsticks for a couple of months now and I keep buying more and more. And yes you will see a lot of reviews on Milani lipsticks in the future. 

 So today I will be reviewing a gorgeous shade for you. Recently I was in the mood for bright colors and went through the whole Milani lipstick section and picked out a couple of gorgeous shades. The one I will be sharing with you today is Fruit Punch. 



First of all lets start with the packaging, all the Milani lipsticks have shiny rose gold tubes. I love the packaging because it is so unique from everything else. Also another thing that I recently found out was that all Milani lipsticks are Paraben free which is great! 


Fruit Punch is a pink cream shade. I love how the finish is cream and the pink is very vibrant on my lips. The formula of this lipstick is amazing, I have dry lips and it is great with moisturizing my lips. The lipstick stayed on my lips for 5 hours and then I had to reapply it.

 Over all I am totally in love with this shade, it is a great way to start spring! I will have more reviews on different Milani lipsticks coming soon! I hope all of you have a great day!

Let me know in the comments below if you have ever tried Milani lipsticks! Thank you so much for reading.

Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat Review

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day. I have noticed that recently I have not done a "nail" related post here for you guys. So today I thought I will do one, and share with you my thoughts on a new product from Sally Hansen. 

 Sally Hansen is one of my favorite drugstore brand for nailpolishes and nail care products. I always end up picking great shades from them, and the formula is also amazing. This time when they came out with a new top coat, I had to try it. 

 




So I have been using this top coat for a couple of weeks now, and I really like it. It does dry in a couple of minutes, but not "completely" dry. The shine is great when you first apply the coat, I feel like once the top coat is dried completely the shine goes away a little bit.

The top coat for me didn't chip until three days, which is not bad. I do usually change my polish every other day, so this top coat is great for me. 





Over all, this new top coat from Sally Hansen is not all that, but it is worth giving it a try. Let me know in the comments below what is your favorite top coat? Thank you so much for reading.

Milani Brilliant Shine Lipgloss in Ravish Raspberry review & swatches

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying this beautiful sunny weather. Lately I have noticed that I have become a lip gloss junkie. I am in love with anything lips, there are so many beautiful formulas and so many beautiful shades. When I go into a drugstore I just can not resist picking up a beautiful shade of lipstick or lip gloss. So today I will reviewing on of my new lip gloss finds from Milani Cosmetics. 




So, browsing through the new shades that Milani just released I came across Ravish Raspberry. I knew  I had to have this in my life, it looked so beautiful in the tube. First of all, the packaging is really cute and simple. I love the clear tube and how you can actually see the shade of the gloss through the tube.

The applicator is doe-foot shape, and it is so soft and applies the product evenly on your lips. The formula of this gloss is amazing, it applies great. It is NOT sticky at all, I hate sticky glosses. It is so easy to wear on your lips, I love how it does not get gunky on your lips.


 Ravish Raspberry is a raspberry pink creme shade. It has a beautiful shine to it, I love how the pink is so vibrant and makes your lips look beautiful. 





The wear time for this gloss is three to four hours, which is not bad. I drank coffee, and there was still color left and also a little bit of shine. I have not tested this with food yet, but I don't like wearing anything on my lips while I am eating.

Over all I am really impressed with these new brilliant shine lip glosses from Milani. They have a total of fourteen shades, and currently I have five of them. I will of course be picking up more shades soon.

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried these lip glosses? Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day. Talk to you soon!

New NYX Baked Blushes in Full-on Femme & Foreplay Review & swatches

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying this month. Couple of weeks ago when I was in Ulta, I saw a new NYX display that included some baked eyeshadows and baked blushes. I have been on a hunt for great blushes, since I don't own a lot so I thought to check some of the new ones out. 





I picked up two shades, when in Ulta I had no idea what to expect from these blushes. I really liked the shades, and I picked up two. The packaging of these blushes is really cute, it is in a compact size  box, with a little bow to open it. I love how it is clear and you can actually see the blush.






The formula of these are great, it says that you can use them wet or dry. I love the pigmentation is great, the shades are really vibrant. I have never tried a baked blush before, but I am glad I made the decision to pick these up. I have been enjoying them for the past couple of weeks. 




The formula is very smooth and easily blendable. Although the pigmentation is great you have to have a really light hand with these. When I first applied the blush, I had so much product on my brush that I didn't realize until it was on my cheek and looked crazy.

Full- on Femme is a pink shade with silver shimmer. I love how this shade gives you a natural glow and also can be used as a highlight.

Foreplay is a light pink shade with gold shimmer. These baked blushes can also be used as bronzer,but I don't use them like that. I think this shade will be great in the summer.

Over all I am really impressed with these new baked blushes from NYX. They are great, and hopefully soon I will be picking some up. 






Have you tried these baked blushes out yet? Which is your favorite shade? Let me know in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope all of you have a great day. Talk to you soon.
