Butter London ‘Saucy Jack’ – Swatches and Review

Butter London is a prestige polish brand which can be a little pricey. Each polish typically retaisl for around $15.00 a piece. Now, if you’re a polish collector like me, a sale is a chance to buy some Butter. Ulta recently had a buy 2 get 1 free sale so I picked up ‘saucy jack’ to be part of my collection.

The most wearable glitter ever! LaSplash liquid glitter eyeliner in Pink Sparkles – Review, photos, and Swatches

I recently made a trip to Ulta for a good sale and picked this little baby up on the haul. I love LaSplash as a brand and I really love their glitters. They make the best glitter base and loose glitter around for the money. So, I saw this Pinky gold glitter eyeliner and snatched it up. I offically declare that this color is the most wearable glitter for any occasion! I love to wear it on my lower lash line for an extra little bit of sparkle. The cool thing about this color is that it doesn’t scream “hey, I have glitter on my face!”; however, it still looks awesome. Read on for more….

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette Photos and Review

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette Outside Packaging

Oh, Naked palette, what a whirlwind you caused! This was one of tre top selling makeup items of 2011 period. The company couldn’t crank them out fast enough to meet demands. After replacing the eyeliner included in the palette with a brush, they were able to crank them out and meet customer demands. I got mine long before the craziness began. I saw this baby in my Ulta and said, “THAT is an awesome palette” and scooped it up. Weeks later, I was hearing about the demand for this palette and I was so happy I got mine when I did. Fast forward to now, they’ve just released the Naked 2 Palette and with the demand for Naked 1, everyone is trying to grab Naked 2 at breakneck speed. I will be getting Naked 2 for myself but I don’t know when…. 🙂 Read on for more pics and review….

Orly Seashell for Susan g. Komen

Orly Seashell for Susan G. Komen

It’s October, so it means that you will be seeing pink everywhere! It’s breast cancer awareness month and during October, many cosmetics manufacturers like to kick out a lot of pink products and give proceeds to breast cancer research. Since recently deciding to go cruelty free with my makeup, I’ve turned to Orly since Sally Hansen is now a no-no for me. I have to tell y’all, I can’t believe I waited this long to try Orly. I’ll go on about how awesome they are in the mini-review. Keep on reading for more…..

NYX Cosmetics Tango With Bronzing Stix Review and Swatches

I know I have only posted about the NYX candy liners thus far but let me say, I LOVE NYX Cosmetics! NYX hasn’t made a single product I’ve regretted buying and they have a very reasonable price tag. They have a great color selection and pigmentation to their products. The products I’m showing you today are new and I spotted them at my local Ulta on my last trip. I just had to have these and I’ll tell you why. 1.) I am obsessed with cream bronzers and 2.) I trust that NYX won’t let me down in the actual product I buy. I know some don’t like cream bronzers but I will forever buy cream bronzers for everyday contouring. They are so much easier to blend than the powders. I put my foundation/concealer on and then put the cream bronzer on the contours of my cheeks. I then simply blend that in with my foundation brush and it magically makes me look contoured without looking unnatural. I posted on a new cream bronzer I got from MAC which I simply adore but it’s limited edition, so I”m constantly looking for new cream bronzers I love. Did I love these as much? Read on…..
