Maybelline Creamy Matte In Touch Of Spice Review & Swatches

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. As you all know that Maybelline has come out with a beautiful Matte Lipstick line which includes ten shade. Ofcourse the lip junkie I am I had to pick up all the shades, try them and then review them for you all. I already have reviewed one shade HERE, so be sure to check that out to see what other shades they have in the line.




The packaging is very similar to the packaging of all the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks, so nothing different in the packaging department. Touch Of Spice is a beautiful matte pinkish brown shade. Lets talk about the formula of these lipsticks, when you hear matte lipstick instantly you think dry and patchy. The formula of these lipsticks is neither dry or patchy it is really creamy, and the lipstick goes on very smoothly. The texture of the lipstick is so buttery and very smooth, it glides on very easily on the lips without tugging or pulling. The shade is very pigmented, with one swipe you have great pigment but you can also always build it up too. The staying power is more than five hours (with eating & drinking), also I have noticed that around the six hour mark the lipstick does leave a stain behind. Over all I am really impressed with this lipstick all over, I give it a 10 out of 10. I hope all of you enjoyed this post have a wonderful day.

Wet N Wild Daring Downtown Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Sunday, September 28, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying the beautiful weather. As you all know that Wet N Wild has come out with "quints" for Halloween 2014 which are limited edition. I have picked up all the quints they offer in the collection and will be reviewing them for you all. I know how much you enjoy the quints so I decided to keep reviewing them for you all.


Daring Downtown is a beautiful shimmery palette, it includes black and blue blacks. This palette is great for creating smokey look, and also a perfect look for a night out. The formula of this palette is not that great, you do get a great amount of fall out. I have noticed that it is slightly better than the original quints that Wet N Wild released earlier this year. The pigmentation is alright in this quint, with some shades the glitter is really there but some of them there is less glitter. When swatched these shades do look all the same, but they are different in texture. You really have to apply a good eye primer before using these shadows. Over all I am not all that impressed with this quint, it could have improved a little bit or the shades could have been a little different. Let me know in the comments below of what you think about this palette. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Milani Enchanted Topaz Lipstick Review & Swatches

Thursday, September 25, 2014


Hello Beauties,


How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying.As you all know that Milani just recently came out with Limited Edition lipsticks for Fall 2014. Of course I went on a hunt for them and picked up the shades (whole collection). This collection includes three eyeliners, three matte lipsticks and three nailpolishes.





Enchanted Topaz is a beautiful rosy brown nude shade. It is perfect to wear with a smokey eye look and goes with any skin tone. The formula of this lipstick is alright, because it is a matte lipstick it can get really drying. I would not recommend wearing this lipstick without a gloss or a moisturizing balm. I have noticed that this lipstick can bring out the flaky areas on your lips. It wears for a little over four hours but leaves your lips really dry and also travels to the corners of your lips. Over all the lipstick is beautiful but the formula is not that great. If you do apply it with a lipgloss on tip, it gets a little better. Thank you all for reading and have a great day.

Wet N Wild Floral Values Review & Swatches

Wednesday, September 24, 2014


Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. As all of you know that Wet N Wild has been coming out with 5-pan eyeshadow palettes. I have picked up all of them if they are limited edition or from the permanent line. I have also reviewed quite a few of them on my blog so be sure to check those posts out to see what else they offer.




Floral Values is a five pan eyeshadow palette that is in the permanent line from Wet N Wild. I picked up this palette when they first released this line, so I have had it for a while now and tried it many times. First of all this palette contains purples and pinks, so any of you out there who like these shades this palette is perfect for you. For the base you get a light cream shade, for browbone highlight you get a shimmery purple, definer is a dark matte purple, eyelid is matte rose pink and the crease is a golden shimmery blue shade. As you can see there is a whole variety of shades in the palette, so you can create many different looks. The formula of these shadows is not that great, they are really powdry which means a lot of fall out. One thing that I can recommend is to use a good eye primer with these eyeshadows, for them to really show up and stay for a long time.
Over all I am not that impressed with this palette but I still use it often. The shades are just beautiful and that matte pink is a really unique shade. Let me know in the comments below what you think about this shade? Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day.

Milani Enchanted Ruby Lipstick Review & Swatches

Monday, September 22, 2014


Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. Most of you may have heard that Milani came out with a Fall collection, which includes 3 lipsticks, 3 eyeliners and 3 nailpolishes. This collection is limited edition, and is only available at CVS and Wallgreens, for some of us it is a difficulty finding them. After calling about five CVS's & six Wallgreens, I finally found the collection at my local CVS. So I picked up the lipsticks and the eyeliners, I was not really into the polishes.

First of all lets talk abut the packaging of these lipsticks, they are different from the original lipstick packaging that Milani has year around. The lipstick comes in a beautiful gold tube with a clear plastic lid, one thing I did notice is that the name shade is only on the sticker no where else on the tube. I actually like this packaging because with the clear lid it makes it easier to see the color of the lipstick.

Enchanted Ruby is a beautiful deep berry wine shade, leaning more towards the red side. I seriously love this shade because it is great for Fall and even Winter time. It is a matte shade, but I would say it leans more towards the satin side. The formula I would say is a little bit on the drying side, but it is not totally dried where it leaves your lips chapped. I would recommend applying a little bit of balm before this lipstick. One thing I really like is that this lipsticks lasts more than four hours on the lips. Also if you like lipsticks that smell like vanilla amazing this is for you. Over all I am really impressed with this shade, it is beautiful and the price is great too. Let me  know in the comments below if you have picked up this shade and what do you think about it. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in Wear Berries Review & Swatches

Sunday, September 21, 2014


Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is enjoying, the weather has been getting cold and I am missing summer already. But Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I don't mind it at all. Today I have a Essence lipstick review for you all, I picked up a few Essence products at Ulta and I have been loving them. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, you have probably seen swatches of some of the products already.


I have never tried Essence lipsticks before, so when I saw them at Ulta and how pretty the shades look I picked up two shades. The packaging is a black tube with the shade name on the bottom, and a ring around the cap with the shade on it. Nothing fancy about the packaging, and I don't mind that at all. Wear Berries! is a beautiful rose shade with hints of purple in it, I have heard people say its closer to MAC's Rebel but I don't think so. Although this lipstick is matte, the formula is really creamy and glides on without any tugging or pulling. This lipstick does not dry out my lips and wears for a long time. After an hour or two, it does start to fade a little but it does leave a little tint behind. These are really cheap, you can get them for less than four dollars and there are a lot of different shades.
Over all I am really impressed with this lipstick, it is really moisturizing and the shades are great in the collection. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried Essence lipsticks before? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Faint For Fuchsia Review & Swatches

Friday, September 19, 2014

Hello Beauties, 


How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying the cooler weather. So the other day when I was at Target I came across a pretty beat up and empty display of the new Maybelline Matte Lipsticks. I don't understand why people have to test out the actual lipsticks on their hands, it is just gross and not good for people who actually want to buy the lipsticks. So I picked up two "clean" lipsticks and beautiful shades. This new Matte collection contains ten shades, and I will be picking up the rest of them soon because I am in love with them.



Faint For Fuchsia is a beautiful bright fuchsia shades with hints of pink it it, I am seriously in love with this shade. Lets talk formula because I think this is one of the best matte lipsticks formula I have ever come across in my life. Even though the lipsticks are matte the formula is non drying and really really creamy on the lips. It does not leave your lips dry even after five hours of wear, and yes this lipstick lasts for more than five hours. The application is so smooth, I have really dry and flaky lips ( I know gross) but this lipstick glided on very easily and did not pull on my lips.
I am really impressed with everything about it, the packaging, the shade range, the lasting  power, the moisturizing it gives my lips everything is an A+ for me. I would recommend this lipstick over MAC's matte lipsticks, also these new lipsticks will be available at every drugstore soon. Let me know below what do you think about this matte lipstick line from Maybelline. I hope you all enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Wet N Wild A Karat In The World Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying. It is getting so cold here, I cant believe summer is over already. I have pulled out my sweaters and boots! Today we are talking about yet another new LE 5 pan palette from Wet N Wild. As most of you have heard that Wet N Wild recently released their Halloween collection and with that they released new 5 pan palettes. So of course I had to pick them up and review for you guys. 
  A Karat in the World is a beautiful neutral palette, I was drawn to this one immediately. The shades are beautiful, and they have improved the formula too. I fell in love with the gold browbone shade, and you don't really have to use it on your brow bone, I use it as a all over lid shade. These shadows are really soft and don't have a lot of fall out, as the ones before. You can wear these shades with or without primer, the shades come up really intense and the shimmer is beautiful. Over all I am really impressed with this palette, I will have reviews on the lipsticks and more palettes from this collection coming soon. Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day.

Essence Super Fine Eyeliner Pen Review & Swatches

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. The other day I was in Ulta and came across a section from Essence cosmetics. I have heard about them before, but just never tried any of their products. I was really intrigued this time (because the section was clean and pretty looking) so I picked up a few products.
First of all lets talk about how cheap these products are, I was surprised when I saw that the highest price was $5. So of course I had to pick the eyeliner up, and try it out. This eyeliner has a super fine long felt tip and it is great for creating thick or thin lines. When I first used this eyeliner I was impressed at how super black it is, but through out the day the intensity fades away. This eyeliner has a good staying power but it does smudge on the sides through out the day. Over all I am alright with this eyeliner, it isn't super awesome but I like it.
If you have tried this eyeliner let me know in the comments below how you like it. I hope all of you enjoyed this post and have a wonderful day.
