Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Pretty Natural

Hello guys and gals!

Yes I know I have gone a little Milani crazy on my last few posts. I can't help it I love Milani. For this post I have a quick little review on Milani's Color Statement Lipstick in the color Pretty Natural.

I bought this at CVS for 6 bucks.

Color in Pretty Natural

The color is a beautiful rose with a touch of pink.  

This lipstick has a great texture and goes on super smooth. It also has excellent pigmentation and pretty good staying power. Additionally it has a splendid cream finish and a yummy smell. Best part it keeps my lips feeling nice a moisturized.  
The Milani Color Statement Lipsticks are one of my favorite lipsticks ever. They are amazing. This one is the perfect new member to my collection. 

Let me know what you favorite Color Statement Lipsticks are!!

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Milani Matte Baked Bronzer in Sunset

Howdy everyone!!

With summer just around the corner Milani released two limited edition matte bronzers. Of course I got super excited because I am a bronzeraholic. When I found out about these I made my poor husband drive me around Albuquerque trying to hunt them down. 

I finally found them at a Walgreen's for 9 bucks.

I only bought one. 

Sunset 



Like I said in the Milani Matte Baked Blush review this thing is matte really matte. It does however give you a slight glow. The color is a light cool brown. It also has great pigmentation. This is so perfect for contouring. The texture is pretty smooth and it applies so effortlessly. The best part is it has amazing staying power. I am super in love with this bronzer its perfect for this summer.

Have any of you guys tried this out yet? Let me know what you think.

Thank you again for reading and until next time.


   

Milani Matte Baked Blushes


Hi everyone sorry for being MIA again. I have been getting headaches really bad for the last few days and have not been 100%. I've just been laying around not getting anything done. I finally decided I need to get up and get stuff done. Anyway I finally gave in and bought the Milani Matte Baked Blushes a few weeks ago. I really didn't want to buy these because I'm trying not to buy so much makeup but I just couldn't resist.

I don't remember but I think I bought one at CVS and one at Walgreen's. They where around 8 bucks each. 

Delizioso Pink

Gorgeous light bubble gum pink.  



Bella Rosa

Deep red-pink.


I am so happy I bought these I mean come on just look at them they are delightful. Such bright beautiful colors. One thing though these are super duper pigmented you can get a little carried away so you want to just use a tiny bit. Another thing I didn't think they were going to be as matte as they are, when they say matte they mean matte, which is a good thing. Most products that say matte are not totally matte but these are. I have large pores and shimmer makes them look larger so I am always looking for a good matte blush. These also have a wonderful texture that allow them to glide on smoothly. The best thing about these though is that they both last all day long without any fading. I put one on early in the morning and by 10 at night my blush still look perfect.

Have any of y'all tried these? Let me now what y'all think!!

Physicians Formula 2-in-1 Lash Booster Eyeliner + Serum Review

Hello and Good Day!
Physicians Formula is a brand that I truly adore. I use and love a lot of their products. I was looking for a new liquid eyeliner so I did some research on this one. I read a lot of great reviews and thought I would give it a try.

I am crazy about this packaging!
I bought it at CVS for $10.99

Brush Tip

Color in Ultra Black

Intense black color.

Off the website and the back of the packaging:
  • High-tech formula enhances the appearance of lashes while providing the instant definition of a liquid eyeliner, in one easy step!
  • Lash Boosting complex applied at the base of lashes is most effective in improving lash appearance.
  • Innovative and easy to use eyelining tool delivers effortless definition.
  • High-tech Japaneses formula is long-wearing, water-resistant and smudge-resistant.
One of the reasons I like Physicians Formula is they are Hypoallergenic so they don't use a lot of the bad stuff that is in some of our makeup. I have very sensitive eves and wear contacts and this does not bother me at all. The product it self  is nice its very black and kind of watery which I like. 
This also claims to give you more glamorous eyelashes. I have been using it for over a month and they do look a little better which is good. But the best part of this eyeliner is how smooth it goes on. The brush-tip is freaking amazing. I kind of suck at using liquid eyeliner but with this you can get the smallest line or the thickest cat eye without any skips or problems. I also like the staying power. I don't know if it stays for 24 hours like the packages says but it stays a long time with out smudging.
This is my new go to liquid eyeliner. Its perfect! I am glad I finally tried it out.

Have any of you tried it? Let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading and until next time!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review

Hi and Good Day Everyone.

As y'all know I am having a love affair with mascara. The past few months I have been trying any mascara I can get my hands on. I really like Rimmel products but I haven't had the best of luck with their mascara. I have heard a lot of good things about the Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara so of course I had to check it out myself.

I bought it at Target for $5.49 

 Claims on hourglass brush:
  • Exclusive hourglass brush shaped to the lash line to plump lashes, fanning them up and out for a bold, wide-eyed volume. 
  • Coats lashes individually for a big, false lash look in one simple stroke. No clumps!  

 No mascara 

Mascara

Pros: 
  • I love the brush.
  • It does fan out my lashes.
  • I love the dark black color.
Cons:
  • I feel it only gives length and no volume.
  • You need several coats.
  • Clumps lashes together.
  • Hard to wash off.

I don't hate this but I don't love it. I mean I will use it because I have it but if I want fuller lashes I will use my Maybelline Pumped Up! I was so excited about this mascara but as always me and Rimmel mascaras are not friends. 

Have y'all tried this mascara? Let me know what you think!

Thank you for reading and until next time!!


Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush in Natural

Greetings Everyone!
Today I have a quick little review for you all.
As I have said before I love Physicians Formula and I could not stay away from this blush.

Color in Natural
Just look at the cute peach and rose gold packaging. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging.
I bought it at CVS for $12.49

This is the back of the packaging. It has a mirror and a brush.
Even though it is cute it is a little bulky.

The letters have a shimmery on them but when you use it a few times its gone.


All colors swatched.  

This is supposed to give you a beautiful glowing effect with the use of nude pigments. 
I like the different colors in one palette and the idea and the packaging is cute but I feel like this is just way to light for me. I feel like if I'm going to shell out almost $13 bucks on a drugstore blush it better show up. 

Have any of you picked this up? Let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading and until next time.

L'oreal Collection PRIVEE JLo Lipstick Review

Hi Lovely Readers.

I passed the L'oreal PRIVEE display with all its lipsticks and nail polishes and I just couldn't buy one.
Until someone posted a pic on Instagram of this lipstick and I had to go out and buy it with its $9.00 price tag.

I bought it at CVS for around $9.00 bucks.

Jennifer's Nude 


Yes I am in my robe sorry. 

Ok I just want to say I HATE the way L'oreal lipsticks smell. That is why I was hesitant to buy one. This does have that smell. But I tried it anyway. 
I have to say the only things I like about this lipstick is the color and the packaging.
The color is a beautiful nude pink. Which perfect for everyday use. As for the packaging its  a simple matte black with gold. Very stunning looking if you ask me.
Now for what I don't like. First I of course don't like the smell. Then the staying power is lousy. It comes of as soon as you eat or drink and after it comes off it leaves your lips super dry. My lips felt so dry after this came off and I had to keep reapplying because I like the color and my lips where dry and I need to put something on them. I was out so I had to have lipstick on.

I don't know if I will really use this a lot. I do like the color but I hate dry lips. So we will see. I don't think I will run out and buy a new L'oreal lipstick anytime soon.

Did any of you guys pick this up? Let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Maybelline Master Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder in Weekend Bronze

Greetings earthlings!!
LoL sorry I know that was lame.
Anyway I don't know if y'all know but I love bronzer like I really love bronzer. I don't do my makeup without adding a little bronzer.
I have quite a few but I find myself always buying a new one.

The other day I had to stop by Walgreen's and I saw the new Maybelline Summer 2014 Bleached Neons display.

Everything looked tempting but I only bought one bronzer. 

Weekend Bronze

I love the pattern. So cute and different.


When I look at this bronzer it reminds me of a terra cotta pot. It does come off a tad orange but not oompa loompa orange. I really don't have anything like this in my collection. It is pretty light on me but it does give me a nice color. The package says its matte but I feel like it has more of a satin finish.
The only thing that I didn't like about this product is the packaging. It looks nice but the clear plastic cover feels very flimsy. It feels like if open it wrong the cover will break it off. Other than that I like it.  
Now that summer is around the corner I am pretty happy I have this since I do have a bronzer addiction. 

Have any of y'all picked up any of the new Maybelline Bleached Neons Collection? 
Let me know if you guys have any recommendations from this collection. 

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

Wet N Wild Fergie CenterStage Summer 2014 Collection

Howdy Everyone!!

I have some more of the new Wet N Wild products. This time its from the Fergie CenterStage Collection. 

I went to one of my local Walgreen's and spotted the new display but it was pretty picked over. 

I only got a few things. 

The first thing I picked up was this highlighter. 
$6.99 With a Kabuki Brush.
The brush is ok not the best of quality.
Its opened because I couldn't help my self from swatching it.  

To Reflect Shimmer Palette in Photo Bomb

So beautiful.



Oh my I just want to put this all over. Its just beyond gorgeous. 
It doesn't have huge glitter particles but tiny brilliant shimmers. This gives you the most beautiful, lustrous, luminous gold glow. The texture of the product is so soft and almost cream like. You also only need a little bit. The pigmentation is out of this world. This looks and wears like something you would think cost more than $6.99 and you get a kabuki brush and the product itself is huge. What a steal. I am in pure absolute love with this powder.


I also bought some eyeshadow palettes.
$4.99 each

Purple Drank
I don't know about the name.


Swatches without primer.

  • 1- Champagne beige color.
  • 2- Glittery taupe shade. 
  • 3- Plum color with gold shimmer.
  • 4- Violet shade with a satin finish. 
  • 5- Dark purple with blue and light purple glitter.


Mixing Metals 

This is my favorite palette of the two. I mean come on just look at it!!

Swatches with out primer.

  • 1- Pewter shade with chunky silver glitter.
  • 2- Bronze color with metallic finish.
  • 3- Golden olive shade with frost finish.
  • 4- Light golden green color with frost finish.
  • 5- Dark, Dark green with green and gold glitter.

Both palettes are stunning. I wish I had more than two eyes to wear all the colors at once. Also the pigmentation is incredible. Some of the other Fergie palettes pigmentation is a bit blah but not these. WOW!! Even the texture of the shadows is awesome. Very soft and blendable. Some do have some fallout but I'm ok with it. 
So all in all the pieces that I picked up are very impressive and worth the try. Let me know what y'all try out!

Thank for reading and until next time!!
