A Shadow You NEED To Add To Your Arsenal NOW!

MAYBELLINE is just coming out with a new shadow collection, and it’s a mouthful, the Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream-Gel Shadow Leathers Collection.

What I find funny is that I don’t think the brand thought of us collectors of beauty products or if someone should buy more than one shadow as the color of the shade is only listed on the top cap and not on the bottom! When I shot these photos I had to make sure I kept each cap near its bottom so I wouldn’t get confused!

5 Favorites … In Super Bright Makeup!

Everywhere I turn these days I see brighter and brighter shades of makeup on the shelves and me likey! Neon nails, bright lips, pronounced cheeks, and poppin’ peepers is where it’s at right now. So which feature are you fixin' to make bright?

5-Favorites-...-in-Super-Bright-Makeup

1. MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in #885 Vibrant Mandarin ($7.49 @ drugstores nationwide) – orange-based and red is so sexy and will look hot with a faux tan this season.

2. MILANI Liquid Eye Liquid-Like Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua ($6.99 @ milanicosmetics.com) – a bright metallic teal blue that really makes brown eyes stand out.

3. OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Nail Lacquer in Deven Green ($10 @ occmakeup.com and sephora.com) – not quite neon green so a little more wearable for us older folks.

4. BUTTER LONDON Lolly Brights Cheeky Cream Blush in Piccadilly Circus ($20 @ butterlondon.com and ulta.com) – use a light hand with this poppy red color as a little goes a long way. 

5. LIME CRIME Velvetines in Pink Velvet ($20 @ limecrime.com) – a super matte hot pink. Love these Velvetines!

Which Nail Appliques Are Worth the Price Tag?

Nail Appliqués have never been hotter but don’t be deceived as not all are created equal. The market is pretty saturated with so many different styles that is easy to be won over by a design only to have it start peeling off within 12 hours of putting them on.

I’ve tried quite a few brands so do you want to see which ones survived the scrutiny? Click after the jump!

Review+Swatches - Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

MAYBELLINE just came out with some new products that I’ll be reviewing and swatching in the next few weeks. First up is Dream Bouncy Blush, a lightweight spongy-type formula. When I first saw them I thought they were going to be like the mousse blushes they came out with a little while ago but they are so not like those.

Kate and May Say Hello to Eyes

Maybelline-falsies-mascara-#2 Kate-Somerville-Lash-Enhancing-Eye-Makeup-RemoverI have my favorite mascara that I’ve mentioned a ba-zillion times here so not many get thumbs up from me but this  MAYBELLINE Falsies Flared by Volum’ Express Mascara ($7.77 @ drugstores nationwide) does. Not only does it define lashes but it gives them volume and lots of it with the Kera fibers in it. Yes, things can get clumpy if you are not used to a serious mascara, like this one, so I would say this one is not for the novice.

KATE SOMERVILLE True Lash ($35/1.7oz @ katesomerville.com) comes into the fold when it’s time to remove the above mascara. Part of the reason I am so loyal to … this one, is how easy it is to remove. Taking off most mascaras takes a lot of tugging and pulling in the eye area and even then, most don’t remove every speck of black but this one does. It also conditions lashes, hydrates the whole eye area with chamomile, aloe vera and a major ingredient called SymLash226 Complex that boosts keratin production, so more lashes.
