Smokey eyes are probably the most popular way to pimp your eyelids. There are so many ways to smoke out your eye — and not look like a panda in the process. Insert the NYX Winter in Moscow Smokey Look palette ($19.50); a handbook sized folding palette with a mirror, 2 blushes and 5 lip colors on one side, and 14 eyeshadows and applicators on the other side. I received this item to review from my good friend in lipstick, Linda. She asked that I review it so here we go
One of the great things about cosmetics is that there are so many products available to play in that you’re bound to find awesomeness lurking in every corner. I have more lip products than I do anything else, and where most people would stop after 3 lipglosses…I’m always on the quest to find something better than what I already own — that, and I am addicted. Few days ago I ordered some Dolce & Gabbana Ultra Shine lipglosses ($29) and they were love at first swatch.
You ever see a lipstick that you loved in the tube, and maybe even swatched on the back of your hand…but on your face it’s just a big super bright mess? That was a problem I had with a very beautiful lipstick called Impassioned ($14.50 – Amplified) by MAC. It’s a very bright fuchsia that is honestly too bright even for me. To wear it I would have to lightly dab it and blend it with a darker lip liner in that same color family — which is a great solution…but there’s another one…
I know most of you probably already own this product, or have at least seen/heard about it. It’s everywhere! In ads all over the place, pretty much everyone and their mama has one in the beauty community on Youtube, they’re all over Ebay. You cannot escape them. I’m talking about the infamous 120-color eyeshadow palette. The coloring book size double-stack eyeshadow palette with 120 juicy colors.
I’ve been meaning to do this review for a while. Gather ’round boys and girls…it’s time to talk about Revlon Colorstay Liquid Lipstick. I bought this about three months ago after being drawn in by the sultry bold red color. I saw the price tag and was like “Ehh…I dunno about that..”, but I went ahead and bought it anyway.
Finally!! After numerous false-hope emails from Sephora saying “Oh, this palette is back in stock”, only to find out that it wasn’t…I placed my order at Ulta. Yes folks, the elusive Urban Decay Naked Palette ($44) is all mine! Personally, I feel the hype is well deserved. This is an amazing product you guys…foreal…I shoulda bought two!
