Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette In Earthy Elements Review & Swatches

Wednesday, March 30, 2016










Like other drugstore makeup brands Milani has also jumped on the bandwagon and started doing eyeshadow palettes. I enjoy Milani products and also their single eyeshadow range. So when I saw that they came out with palettes I had to go pick up a couple of them. I have tested and tried them out and now it is time to review for you all. This is a brand new line for Spring 2016 and includes all sorts of different color eyeshadow palettes. Today I will be reviewing Earthy Elements for you all, which I am absolutley in love with. 

The packaging with this palette is pretty neat, the six eyeshadows comes housed in a sleek shiny golden palette that has a clear lid. Yes to clear lids because it makes it so much eaiser to pick out your shadows! It also comes with a double ended brush that is not like the regular sponge brushes we get in other palettes so that is a A+ from my side. This eyeshadow palette includes six shadows and retails for $9.99 at drugstore. Now remember you can get them on sale also and don't forget to use coupons. At first I was very surprised to see the price for six shadows, but when I use this palette I understood why. This palette includes mattes and shimmers, so you get both and you can create any look using only this palette. The formula of the eyeshadows is beyond amazing. They are super buttery and soft and very easily blendable. The shimmer shadows go on like a dream and have no fall out also they have great pigmentation with or without eye primer. I am absolutley in love with the matte orange shade in this palette, it is the perfect crease shade for me. Also the bronze shade is beautiful, you can use that all over the eyelid and it creates a pretty look. Over all I give this palette 100/100 and dont mind paying that price tag for such great shadows. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this palette. Thank you so much for reading and have a great day.

Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color in Cherry Cobbler Review & Swatches

Wednesday, March 23, 2016










Jordana Cosmetics has released a whole new collection of liquid lip colors. I have already reviewed on shade HERE so be sure to check that out and see other shades in this collection. Everyone is crazy these days over matte lips, either they are drugstore or high end and seems like every company is coming out with their own line. So I had to give these a try because they are only $2.99 (depends on where you get them). The packaging is super cute, they come housed in a little glass container with a doe foot applicator and you can see the shade. 

Cherry Cobbler is a pretty bright pink shade with little hints or red in it. This is such a perfect shade for spring and summer time because it is not a true red. The formula of this matte liquid lip color is amazing, it goes on very smoothly when applied and does not settle into your fine lines or dry areas. It dries down to a matte finish but I wouldn't say that it is completely matte. The formula does not dry out my lips and it doesn't even feel like I am wearing a matte lipsticks. It is very creamy and stays like that on the lips through out the day. The shade is super pigmented so you don't  even need a second layer. The formula is not patchy at all and glides on to your lips, it lasted me all day and this shade in particular left a little bit of stain behind. Over all I am super impressed with this liquid lip cream and love the other shades as well. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this lip cream. Thank you fro reading and have a great day.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips In Frick n Frack Review & Swatches

Wednesday, March 16, 2016








By now I am pretty sure all of you have heard about the new Colourpop collection of the Ultra Satin Lips. They released 16 new shades and from them I picked out five. I have been trying them out for a while now and I am super impressed. Colourpop has kept the packaging the same with these new satin lips as the previous matte lipsticks. They have great colors in this collection check out Tansy , it is a beautiful shade.

Frick N Frack is a beautiful rosy brown shade that looks great on every skin tone. This was the first shade I tried out and I fell in love with it. It goes on very smooth on the lips and is super pigmented. I did not have to dip my wand back, it was fully opaque at first use. The formula of this shade is smooth, creamy and very soft. Even with my dry lips this shade stays on the lips and does not fade or stay in my fine line. I love how this formula is comfortable on my lips, it is light and you feel like you are not even wearing anything. This shade lasted me over five hours, but I did have to reapply after I ate a big meal. The formula is not transfer proof, so be aware of that. Over all for the price this is an amazing product. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this product. Thank you for reading and have a great day.

New York Color Lovatic By Demi Palette Review & Swatches

Sunday, March 13, 2016











Yes! Another drugstore eyeshadow palette, don't you just love it? I do I am super happy that drugstore brands are coming out with great affordable palettes. Recently I picked up a new palette from NYC and it is in collaboration with Demi Lovato. At first sight I knew I had to pick it up because of the neutral every day shades that it includes. I got mine from Kmart, but I am pretty sure you can find it at Target as well. 

This eyeshadow palette includes 12 neutral shades that are shimmery, matte and satin. There are also warm and cool tones includes in this palette. This is a great palette if you are looking for something all over. When I started swatching these shadows I completely fell in love with the shades. The formula is very smooth and soft and also pigmented. But that is some of the lighter shades are not that pigmented. The darker shades are pigmented, and can be applied without primer. These shadows are super blendable and do not fade or crease. For some reason I love the shimmery shades in this palette, the shimmery ones are pigmented and look great on the eyelids. Without primer the formula was great but once you apply a eyeshadow primer before these are a whole new thing. You can create so many different looks with this eyeshadow palette. It is great for every skin tone and for people who love neutrals and smoky shadows. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this eyeshadow palette. Thank you for reading and have a great.

Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color in Strawberry Cheesecake Review & Swatches

Wednesday, March 9, 2016







Drugstore brands have been coming out with liquid lipsticks left and right. But I was shocked when Jordana came out with a whole bunch of liquid lipsticks. I love the brand Jordana their lip liners and lipsticks are amazing. Jordana has released twelve new shades in the collection which I picked up three of. If you follow me on Instagram you can always see before hand what I have picked up from the drugstore. I do many hauls and swatches before I post here on the blog. 

The packaging of this liquid lipstick is super cute, it comes housed in a small glass container and has a doe-foot applicator. When I started swatching these I was blown away by the formula, it is just amazing. The liquid lipstick goes on very smoothly on the lips and with one swipe you get great pigmentation. I did not have to go back and apply another layer of the product. After applying it, the lipstick settled into my lips perfectly and was very light weight. I did not feel like I had something on my lips, it stayed the same through out the day. The lipstick did not fade, crease, flake or transfer on me through out the wear. It is  just an amazing soft creamy formula that I look for in every liquid lipstick. Over all this is a great liquid lipstick from the drugstore which is super affordable. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this product. Thank you for reading and have a great day.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips In Tansy Review & Swatches

Sunday, March 6, 2016







As most of you have heard by now that last month Colourpop released a whole new collection of their Ultra Satin Lips. Everyone had to get their hands on it and I was one of them. I ordered the same day actually the same minute they came out. I got a total of five out of sixteen shades that they released. Some of the shades that I wanted were sold out in seconds, so now its time to wait for the restock. I know Colourpop does not ship worldwide so those of you who are in those countries just keep waiting hopefully soon they will start shipping. 

Colourpop kept the packaging the same as their ultra matte liquid lipsticks, nothing has changed. The applicator is doe foot so its very easy to apply to your lips and the product does not get everywhere. Tansy is a beautiful medium toned brown shade with yellow undertones. I seriously love this shade and don't own one like this in my collection. It looks beautiful on my medium toned skin. The formula is super soft and smooth. The lipstick applies evenly on the lips and is super pigmented. The finish is a satin finish of course, so if you are looking for a matte finish this product is not for you. This lipstick lasted me more than six hours, but does fade away a little bit once you eat. But with this shade it does leave a stain behind so you really have to rub your lips off to get the stain out. That could be either a good or bad thing, but it is long lasting which is great. While wearing this shade I am not worried about it transferring or anything. Over all I am super impressed with this formula and shade. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this product. Thank you for reading and have a great day.

NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Push-Up Review and Swatches

Thursday, March 3, 2016









NYX cosmetics has released a whole new line of liquid lipsticks. I am sure by now many of you have heard or probably tried the new NYX Lingerie liquid lipsticks. Even though I am not a fan of nude liquid lipsticks when I saw these I had to give at least one a try. The product comes housed in a glass tube with a doe-foot applicator. The name of the shade is on the side and so are the ingredients. These liquid lipsticks are super affordable, they range fro $6-$7. That is what I love about NYX cosmetics, they are very affordable and the product is always amazing and top quality. 

Push-Up is a beautiful every day pink brown nude shade. This shade will suit many skin tones but not all, also if applied with lip liner you can darken this shade as well. The formula of this shade is very soft and smooth. With one swipe you get great pigmentation and sometimes you don't even need to go in for a second application. As you can see from the swatch the shade is very matte but it does not dry out your lips at all. After I applied the liquid lipsticks to my lips it took about 30-45 seconds for it to try down. I was surprised and after that I could not feel it on my lips. It is so soft on the lips and does not settle into my dry cracks on the lips. One of the best things about the liquid lipstick is that it lasts all day on the lips. With eating and drinking I did not see any flaking or anything moved on my lips. The shade stayed on like I applied first in the morning. The formula just amazes me of this liquid lipsticks. Over all I am super impressed with this liquid lipstick and recommend it for everyone. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this liquid lipstick. Thank you for reading and have a great day.
