One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.
I’m finally back with another beauty post! If you have followed my blog for awhile, I’m sure you know that foundation is one of my favorite makeup items to test out. The Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation* was recently released and it caught my eye so I decided to try it out for you. So far, the only Dior foundation that I’ve tried is the Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation, and that is one of my very favorite foundations so I figured that this one would probably work well for me too. I picked up this foundation in the same shade, 050 Dark Beige. Keep reading if you would like to see what I thought as a first impression on this foundation!
If you regularly keep up with the beauty blogs, you may have heard about the new Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes that Hourglass released. These beautiful palettes are now available in 7 varieties and I decided to try out the Obscura version. I haven’t had a chance to play around with this palette yet, but I know this will be a hot item, so I wanted to get out some swatches for you in case you’re interested in ordering.
Every year, Sephora teams up with the color experts, Pantone, to create beauty products featuring the Color of the Year. The Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala, “an earthy red wine”. When I saw the collection they were coming out with, I was immediately drawn to the nude lip collection pictured above. Keep reading to see if the Marsala Layering Lip Collection lived up to my expectations.
NARS recently released a huge line of lipsticks with a brand new formulation that has been getting a lot of buzz in the beauty community. This range boasts 40 shades that promise long lasting, full impact color all while giving a luxurious feel to the lips. Sounds great, but for $32 each, are they worth it? I purchased 3 shades to test out so that I could let you know!
In my last haul video, I mentioned two Tom Ford blushes that I picked up, Flush & Savage. I had a gift card to use so I figured I might as well splurge! Plus I’ve heard nothing but good things about Tom Ford makeup, so I was excited to finally try some. If you’re interested in swatches and my thoughts on them, keep reading!
Stila isn’t a brand that gets a whole lot of attention in the blogosphere, but it looks like they are trying to change that with their brand new palettes! They recently released 4 new eyeshadow palettes in celebration of their 20th anniversary, the Eyes Are The Window Palettes. All four palettes come in beautiful jewelry inspired compacts in rose, yellow and white gold toned metals. I decided to pick up two of the palettes, Mind & Spirit. Keep reading for pictures and swatches!
This month I didn’t have many favorites. Most of the month I’ve been so busy doing stuff for the house that I didn’t wear much makeup. Check out my favorites video below, or keep reading for a brief description of each item I chose.
It’s Favorites time! Unfortunately, this month I had one product that I didn’t like. Check out the video above, or just breeze through the brief commentary on each product below!
As soon as I saw the new Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain, I immediately thought of my beloved YSL Glossy Stains. I decided to just try one of these in the shade London Posh. Prior to purchasing this product, I really didn’t have any previous knowledge on it. Keep reading to find out if it was a hit or miss for me!
