Beauty on a Budget
As an avid fan of great packaging of course, I’m loving all over the new Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush! Seriously, how cute are these! The Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush comes in four shade selections and each is a 3D raised rose design. I likened these to the Rose Lip Gloss from the NYC New York Color Cosmetics Bloom Collection but thinking back they also remind me of the Body Shop’s Rose Flower Blushes too!
I’m such a sucker for pretty makeup.
Let’s take a look!
Wake me up before you go go with a little Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch. These creamy, lightweight mousses blend into skin creating radiance and glow in a simple swipe.
I’m scared of highlighters and was actually terrified of these as well since I don’t do shimmer well but they are actually quite nifty.

If I didn’t have most of them I’d be all over the NYX Center Stage Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection ($20)! This six piece set includes full size NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in a range of colors for $20 (it would be $27 if you purchased them separately).

The Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette is quite a beauty budget pick at mere $3.99 each. And I actually reviewed one of these not so long ago in a land far, far away…and felt like the formula wasn’t TOO bad.
Recently, I was picking things out of my to be reviewed pile and realized I also had the Tickled Pink version of the Jesse’s Girl 9 Pan Eyeshadow Palette which I hadn’t yet reviewed.
Unfortunately, my original experience with the shadow was so so, not bad but with Tickle Pink things went a little down hill!
The Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palette ($4.99) were released int two shades selections exclusively at Walgreens locations for Summer 2013. I recently hauled and posted about them earlier in June but never got a chance to review them until now.
Honestly, I didn’t really love them for a number of reasons. Wet n Wild had a consistent run with me about two years ago with an improvement in quality and some great releases. I feel the brand has digressed with recent releases and the quality has gone down and the releases are highly repetitive. The ColorIcon Palettes in particular were fantastic but releases for example like Fergie’s Centerstage PhotoOp Eyeshadow Palettes are a joke.
These Medley Eyeshadow Palettes are another reason the brand loses points with me unfortunately.
