Maybelline Iridescent Shine Color Elixirs in Pearlescent Peach Review & Swatches

Monday, December 29, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day and enjoying. As you all know Maybelline just released their 2015 spring collection, and with that collection they released new Color Elixirs that are called Iridescent Shine collection. I picked up two shades and today I will be reviewing one for you all.




They kept the packaging same for this collection of the color elixirs. Personally I really like the packaging, you can see the shades through the clear tube. Pearlescent is a beautiful peachy shade with lots of light shimmer in it. I love this shade for just a natural peachy finish and goes great with any makeup look. The formula of this Elixir is just amazing, it goes on the lips very smoothly and it is not sticky at all. I hate sticky glosses and this is one of them that I love wearing. Over all I am really impressed with this Elixir, they did an amazing job with the shade and the finish. Let me know in the comments below what do you guys think about this shade? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Maybelline Color Molten By Eyestudio Nude Rush Review & Swatches

Saturday, December 27, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day. The new year is almost here and you all know what that means, companies start releasing 2015 products. Last week I picked up a tons of new Maybelline products and I came across a display for the new Color Molten shadows. Now I have not heard about them before seeing this display, so I was not sure what they actually were. But you all know me I had to try at least one shade and I got Nude Rush.



First of all lets talk about the packaging, it comes housed in a small round shape container and has a slit in the middle for 2 shadows to go in there. I like the packaging because it is not bulky and you can just throw it in your purse to go. But let me tell you guys, you might not even want to buy this in the first place. There are suppose to be a "gel" to powder finish eyeshadow, I do see the gel a little bit but the powder is no where. I had such a bad experience with these, they are not creamy or powdery at all. There is absolutely no pigmentation in these, as you can see from my swatches above. This swatch is with 2-3 swipes of each shade and still nothing. I applied these on my lids as a base and it did nothing for me. I am usually a big fan of Maybelline products, but this product just did not do it for me. I hope they come out with a new formula for these soon, because in the display the color collection looked really great. Let me know in the comments below what do you guys think about this Color Molten from Maybelline. Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Hello Beauties, 

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great holiday season and enjoying with your families. Recently Rimmel released a new line that includes new mascaras and new lipsticks from the Kate line. I picked up one of the shades from the line, and today I want to share one shade with you. 






This is my second time purchasing a Rimmel By Kate lipstick, I saw this display and this shade really stood out to me. I love Rimmel lipsticks and buy them a lot, I thought to pick up a shade that will be great for winter and the holidays. The formula of this lipstick is great, it goes on smoothly and does not transfer out of the lips. The shade is really dark and is very pigmented. Over all the lipstick is really great and has a great price too. I am hoping to pick up other shades from this collection soon. Let me know in the comments below on what you think about this shade. I hope all of you have a great day.

Monday, December 22, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. I have been reviewing some of the Maybelline matte lipsticks and today I have another great shade for you all. Keep scrolling down!




Daringly Nude is a beautiful nude shade for any skintone. This shade has a pink undertone but trust me it does not look bad by itself. The formula of this lipstick is amazing, it is super creamy and really moisturizing. While wearing this lipstick I don't have to worry about moving it or getting else where on my face. Let's just call it a "worry" free lipstick. This is one of the best formulas of maybelline lipsticks I own. The lipstick is really matte and has no shine to it. Over all I like this shade for a everyday shade, it can go with any eye look and any blush. Let me know in the comments below what is your favorite nude lipstick? Thank you so much for trading and I hope all of you have a great day and enjoy the holidays!

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara Review & Swatches

Friday, December 19, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. Covergirl has released their Spring 2015 line which includes a new mascara from the Last Blast line. I am not a really big fan of Covergirl mascaras, but this mascara has changed my mind.




The pink packaging is the first thing that made me want to pick up this mascara. Before picking up this mascara I was not aware that Covergirl has come out with a new one. First of all lets talk about the mousse formula of this mascara. Like other Covergirl mascara this one is not drying or wet, it has the perfect formula. It gave my lashes beautiful length and great volume. The brush is all plastic and it has great bristles, it really separates your lashes and does not clump them up. One great thing I have noticed about this mascara is that it does not flake or smudge at all. It stays put all day long and also does not clump up. Over all I am really impressed with this mascara, it gives great length to my lashes. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried this mascara? Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day.

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

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. December is here and it is super cold outside, I miss sunny days. As you can see I will be posting a lot of posts which I have already saved in my drafts. Because of there being no sunlight during winter it is really hard to take pictures of products. I am still looking for a set up that I can do in my house to take great pictures. So please don't mind if I don't have anything new for you to post about. Hopefully soon I will be doing new product posts.



Bella Teal is a beautiful sky blue shade with a slight sheen to it. I love wearing this shade in the inner corners of my eyes, it just brightens up the look. As you all know I love the formula of the Milani eyeshadows, these go on super smooth and blend easily. These have a great lasting power and you really do not need to use a primer underneath. Because of the metallic formula of this shade it does have a little bit of fall out, but I don't mind that at all. I hope all of you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below what do you think about this shade. Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful day.

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick In Gladiolus Review & Swatches

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying. We have had snow the last couple of days and it sure looks and feels like winter outside now. Revlon released a new line of lipsticks and lipglosses in a new HD formula. I have reviewed a couple of the products in this line in previous blog posts so be sure to check those out.






Gladiolus is a beautiful bright red orange shade. The first thing I noticed about this particular shade is the scent, it is different from the other lipsticks from this line. It just over whelms you when you apply the lipstick, but it does fade away after a while. This shade is really pigmented and with one swipe you get a beautiful opaque shade. The formula of this one is great, it goes on very smoothly and the lipstick stays on for more than seven hours. This lipstick reminds me a lot of the Revlon Lip Butters but the formula is slightly moisturizing. Over all I am really impressed with this shade, it is great for any sort of outing or great for days out with your girls. Also with the holidays coming up, if you don't want a true red you can always wear this shade to brighten up. Let me know in the comments below what are your thoughts on this shade. Thank you so much for reading, have a great day.

Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick in Pink-Light Review & Swatches

Wednesday, December 10, 2014




Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope everyone is having a great day. I am back from a three week vacation seeing family overseas. Had a lot of fun but back to posting because I missed my blog a lot. Before I left for vacation I purchased the new Almay Butter Kiss Balms.


Pink-Light is a beautiful pink shade with no shimmer but a little bit of shine to it. The formula of this balm is amazing. It goes on very smoothly and is very moisturizing on the lips. This collection as a whole bunch of shades for all skintones I only picked up this one from the "medium skintone" section. The packaging is really similar to the Revlon Lip Butters with the clear lid and also the shade name on the bottom. The formula is really different from the lip butters, this is a hybrid product with a pigmentation of a lipstick and moisturization of a balm. The staying power is not that good on this lipstick, you do have to reapply it a lot of times through out the day. Over all I am really impressed with the formula of these. Let me know in the comments below what do you think about this lipstick? Thank you so much for reading and I hope all of you have a great day.

oxoxo,
