Coastal Scents Hot Pot in St. Topez Review & Swatches

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. I am writing this post while the hubby grills some chicken for me. Summer is seriously my favorite month I love grilled anything. As you all know I have been posting a lot of Coastal Scents Hot Pot reviews, and of course I have another one today. Check out the recent post HERE & HERE & HERE .

St. Topaz is a beautiful shimmery golden bronze shade. This is the perfect shade if you want a beautiful golden shimmery eye look. You can build it up to the intensity you want, but it already is really pigmentated.
The shade glides on easily and is really easily blendable. These shades are cheap but have great quality, I always look for a sale and if there is one I pick tons of them up.
Over all I am impressed with this shade and would recommend it to everyone. I hope you all enjoyed this post have a great day.

NYX Xtreme Lip Creme in Spicy Review & Swatches

Friday, August 29, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying the HOT weather. Well it is what it is, and we have to move with time. I am trying to do a lot of posts and reviews for you guys these days. I have been going through a lot of my makeup and trying to use up things that I have not been using a lot. Today I will be reviewing a NYX Xtreme Lip Cream, I have reviewed some before HERE a while ago and I went through my collection to find out that I have more shades. 

 
Spicy is a red shade, but not your typical true red. It looks different in the tube, but on the lips it is really bright. You really have to work carefully with this shade because it can get a little messy, it is a really bright shade. The texture of this lip creme is really smooth and creamy. It goes on the lips with no problem, and you can also blend it or build it up. This has a great shine to it too, more like a lip gloss. 


  This lasts a long time on your lips, with eating and drinking it lasted me about eight hours and left a little bit of tint behind. Over all I really like the formula and the Xtreme Lip Cremes. They are affordable and long lasting, also now available at CVS! Let me know in the comments below if you have tried these before. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Bella Mandarin Review & Swatches

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is enjoying and having a great day. I am enjoying a nice cup of coffee and sitting in my living room relaxing, so I thought why not write a couple of posts today (easier said than done). Anyways today I have yet another Milani Eyeshadow review for you all. I have been reviewing these shades recently here , here & here so be sure to check those posts out to get an idea on what other shades they have.
Today the shade I will be reviewing for you is Bella Mandarin is a beautiful peachy orange shade with a satin matte finish. This shade is really unique and I don't have anything like it in my collection. You can wear this shade as a crease shade or even as a all over the lid eyeshadow.
This shadow is easily blendable and you can also build it up. I am seriously in love with the formula of these new shadows, there is basically no fall out and they are so smooth. I have noticed that these shadow are really different in everything, the formula, the look, the texture is not like a "real" eyeshadow. Milani did an amazing job with these shadows, and I have heard that they are coming out with quads next year!
Over all I am really impressed with this shade, I will have more reviews coming soon! Just waiting for these to go on sale and I will pick up a lot more shades. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried these and what you think? Thank you so much for reading and have an amazing day!

PS: Sorry this one does not have any swatches, I totally forgot.

Fall 2014: Wet N Wild Melrose At Night Review & Swatches

Monday, August 25, 2014

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying. Fall is coming which means that companies are releasing their Fall 2014 collections. The other day I ran into a new display from Wet N Wild for Fall 2014, that included four new LE 5-Pan Eyeshadow palettes. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM I posted a picture of the display. At first thought, I was not sure if I want to pick these up, but recently I have heard great review about it. I ended up picking four (all of them) up. 

 Lets start with the packaging, if you have seen/have Wet N Wild palettes they always their standard black case packaging, with a clear it. I actually like this because you can clearly see the eyeshadows and it makes it easier to store and use. When Wet N Wild released these new five pan palettes last year, I picked up all of them and I was not impressed at all. There was no pigmentation, the shadows were chalky and there was a lot of fall out. But with these new LE ones Wet N Wild has really stepped up their game.
 The brow bone is a matte light brown shade, base is a cream shade, definer is a dark brown (almost black) shimmer, eyelid is a deep cinnamon and crease is a light pink shade. With all these shades here you can create so many different looks. You go can from day to night with only these five shades.
 
 I was also really impressed with the pigmentation of these shades, one swipe and you have great color pay off. Melrose At Night is a beautiful neutral eyeshadow palette. If you love everyday shades, natural eyelids, and browns you have to pick this one up. It is just beautiful at first time, and at first swatch you are in love instantly.

Over all I am really impressed with the new 5-pan shadows from Wet N Wild, hopefully the keep up with the quality of these. Let me know in the comments below what do you think about this palette? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Bella Cafe Review & Swatches

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. As all of you have heard that Milani has released thirty new Bella Eyeshadow shades, and I have reviewed some of them HERE & HERE & HERE .  Be sure to check those posts out so you have an idea of what shades are in the collection over all. Recently I picked up eight (8) more shades, while they were buy one get one 50% off at CVS. 



The packaging of these shadows is really cute, they come in a golden round container. The shadows are built in the container but I have seen a lot of videos on how you can depot these. Milani is really great with choosing their packaging, I think they have almost everything in gold packaging. Who doesn't want pretty packaging especially when it is gold?

 

 Bella Cafe is a medium taupe shade with a satin matte finish. I love using this shade on my crease, it blends out any shade perfectly. This shade is not pigmented that much, but applied with a primer it is great. You can easily build this shade up to what ever intensity you want the look. The formula is really great, they are soft and really blendable. I have not tried these wet yet, because I don't like the eyeshadows wet it just grosses me out.

 Over all I am in love with this color, I feel like this will be used in my crease for every look from now on. These are really affordable, great quality and have great pigmentation. I will have more reviews on other shades coming soon, once I try them, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Let me know in the comments below if you would like this shade in your crease? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying summer. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you know that I ordered a some hot pots from Coastal Scents, I have had them for a while now and have been testing them out so today I will be reviewing a hot pot for you which is near and dear to my heart. If you have not heard of Coastal Scents check out my posts HERE & HERE to see more shades and learn more about the company.
Barista is a matte warm brown shade aka the perfect crease shade. I love using this in my crease when I am doing a heavy look, or using lots of colors on my lids. This shade blends so smoothly and perfectly, you don't really need to work on it that much in your crease because it does the "job" by itself. I love wearing this shade with my Maybelline Color Tattoos on the lid and this in the crease.

The formula is great too, soft to the touch and not a lot of fall out. I am creating my own palette from Coastal Scents so I am excited to get more shades. Over all this shade is a great shade for the crease and also to use under your waterline. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this shade before and how you liked it. I hope all of you enjoyed this post, have a great day.

Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Raisin Berry Review & Swatches

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. It is a gloomy rainy day here, so I thought to sit down and write a post. Many of you have heard about the company Coastal Scents and today I will be reviewing one of their hot pot eye shadows for you all. I have done a post before HERE on one of the hot pots so be sure to check that one out so you have an idea of what kind of shades they have. 
 

First of all let me give you some background information on Coastal Scents if you have not heard about it. It is an online based makeup company which sells amazing quality makeup for an affordable price. I have two of their 120 eyeshadow palettes and I really love the quality of them. Couple months ago I ordered six of the Hot Pots, I have been using these a lot and I love them.
Raisin Berry is a (cranberry) burgundy shade with a shimmer finish. This here is a perfect shade for fall, it really defines fall. The formula is amazing, it goes on buttery and blends like a dream. Seriously the first time I swatched this shadow I let out a squeal because of how smoothly it went on. It is super pigmented, seriously you don't even need a primer for this shadow. This shade is perfect to wear all over the lid, alone or with just highlight under the browbone. It is great for any skin tones and you can either build it to be really smokey or just wear it by it self for a beautiful look.
Over all this is one of my favorite shades I ordered from the website, so smooth and so blendable with no fall out. If you are thinking of picking up some hot pots, make sure to pick this one you will be happy that you did. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried Coastal Scents and which is your favorite product from them. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Mauve Outta Here Review & Swatches

Monday, August 11, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. As you all know I am a big fan of Wet N Wild makeup, and I have been using their lipsticks for a long time. I was looking through my blog and noticed that I have not reviewed many Wet N Wild lipsticks for you all. So today, I thought, lets sit down and review these great lipsticks for you all. I know you can not find Wet N Wild all over the world, they are greatly available in US drugstores, but you might want to check Ebay they sometimes have great deals.

Wet N Wild lipsticks come in a standard lipstick tube, with a clear lid and black packaging. Mauve Outta Here is a pretty pink shade with hints of purple in it, it is really pretty color. I don't have anything like this in my collection, and I just love the shade. The formula is great, it glides on easily and smoothly, with no bleeding. I can apply this lipstick with no mirror and it will apply perfectly.

This lipstick is really comfortable on the lips, and I wear no balm underneath it. It stays on for a couple of hours, but you all know that I love reapplying lipstick through out the day anyway. One thing I am going to say is that it does transfer easily, for example you are drinking coffee it will transfer to the cup. Because of the matte finish the lipstick can get a little bit drying through out the day, so I just moisturize my lips whenever I feel like my lips are getting dry.
Over all I am in love with the formula of these lipsticks, they are cheap, long wearing and have a great variety of colors. I will have more posts coming soon on these lipsticks so  keep an eye out for them. Let me know in the comments below if you have ever tried Wet N Wild lipsticks and what is your favorite shade? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Wet N Wild Trio in Sun-set To See Review & Swatches

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying, I am enjoying the beautiful summer days! So today, again, I have a new post for you with a review on the new LE Wet N Wild Trios. I have reviewed two already here & here, so make sure to check those out so you have an idea on what other trios are like. 

 Sun-set To See is a beautiful trio, with wearable matte shades. It has a shade for browbone which is a cream beige shade, they crease shade is a dark matte brown and the eyelid shades includes a coral matte orange. As you can see these shades are really wearable, and anyone can pull these off. When Wet N Wild came out with the new five pan eyeshadows I really didn't like them, so I hesitated to pick these up, but I was wrong. They definitely upped their game with these LE ones. 

  The formula is great, the shadows go on smooth and the eyelid with just a little bit of fall out. I apply my shadow with primer and these have great pigmentation by them selves too. As you can see in the swatches the brown shade is really pigmented and smooth. I am really impressed with this, something under three dollars and this great, I love it. 

 Over all this trio is a great one for everyday use, you can use the shades alone or you can use all three together. The pigmentation is great and there is less fall out, these do last a long time too. Let me know in the comments below what is your favorite trio from Wet N Wild, thank you for reading and have fa fantastic day.

Wet N Wild Trio in Who's Carpooling? Review & Swatches

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying summer. I sure am! As you all know recently Wet N Wild released limited edition trios for Summer 2014, I have reviewed here so be sure to check them out. As you all know I am big fan of Wet N Wild anything, so of course I had to pick these trios up and review them for you

These trios come in standard Wet N Wild packaging, and comes sealed on three sides. I have noticed that these LE trios all have matte shades, which I am really liking. You don't find a lot of matte bright shades in the drugstore, so I really like the idea that Wet N Wild came out with these. Today I have the trio in Who's Carpooling? at first sight I fell in love with it. This trio has a matte white, a matte green and a matte bright blue.

Just love the combination of colors in this trio, you can create a few different looks with it. I think the matte white shade will also look great under the eye or just as a pop of color on the corner. The formula of this trio is amazing ( I know shocking isn't it?) I love how smooth the shadows go on. Also I have noticed with this trio it has less fall out because they are not that powdery. Easily blendable, and you can build up the intensity of the shades.
Over all I am really impressed with this trio, I love it and I will be using the green shade a lot this summer! Let me know in the comments below if you have tried these LE trios, or what are you favorite products from Wet N Wild. Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in Bella Copper Review & Swatches

Monday, August 4, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoyed the weekend. Today I have another review on the Milani Bella Eyes eyeshadow for you all. I have reviewed two of these shades already HERE & HERE so be sure to check those shades out and get a idea of what is in the collection. Milani recently released thirty new shades and they are called Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows. 

 Bella Copper is a gold copper shade, with a metallic finish. Seriously love this shade a lot, it has great pigmentation and the shadow is so soft and very blendable. I don't have this kind of shade in my collection, I am glad that Milani came out with different shades. The formula is really soft and because of that you can have a little bit of fall out. 

 Also, lets not forget about the cute packaging, I love how Milani has a "gold" theme going on with their packaging. I have seen a lot of YouTube videos on how to depot these Milani eyeshadows, I love the packaging so I wont be depotting these at all. Currently I own four shades from this collection, but soon Ill be going back and picking the bright shades up. 

Over all I am really impressed with the new eyeshadows, let me know in the comments below if you have tried these? Thank you so much for reading and keep looking back for new posts. Have a great day!

NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Candy Land Review & Swatches

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying summer. I never noticed that I have so many NYX Xtreme lip creams, so I thought to go through them, use them and review them for you guys. I have reviewed other shade HERE , so make sure to check that out and maybe you will like one of the other shades.  


Candy Land is a medium pink shade and is very wearable. It is a perfect shade for summer or even fall time, also a great everyday pink. It dries to a soft pink shade and is very creamy. I love the formula of these Lip Creams they are really soft and go on smoothly. This shade lasted me more then four six with eating and drinking. 

 The applicator is a doe-foot and it is really soft, it helps the product apply evenly. I don't use a lip liner with these, first because it is sort of a gloss you don't need to, secondly they are great without the lip liner. 



Over all I think the Xtreme Lip Creams are a must have in anyone collection, The formula is long lasting, and non sticky. They also have a great variety of shades to pick from and sometimes they are even on sale. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried the Xtreme Lip Creams before? Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a wonderful day.
