Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette Neutrals Swatches 2

It’s understandable that the Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette in Neutrals is damn nearly impossible to find. Let’s face it Urban Decay has created such a stir with their Naked Palette that everyone just wants to gather up any and all nude palettes that launch.

Oh wait, maybe that’s only me?

Naaa! You’re all as crazy and as strange as me so you’re probably stock piling nude, natural, naked palettes like no brand will reproduce one in the next twenty years or more.

Now for the budget girls you might love all over Hard Candy’s Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette in Neutrals because it contains ten nude shades of shadow for a mere six bucks.

Do likey the price but how’s the formula?

Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm Spring 2013

Heads up beauty budget lovers! The new Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm has launched for Spring 2013 in four delicious shades.

I admit I’m a lip balm junkie. They make a guest starring appearance in my desk drawer, on top of my desk, in my makeup bag, in the bottom of my tote, on my office desk, on my night stand, on my vanity…yeah, you get the point.

I just find slicking on balm is a far easier task when you’re busy versus reapplying your lipstick and gloss.

At $1.99 each Essence soothes my beauty budget sweet tooth with their little Kiss Care Love Balms!

Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Review & Swatches

Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Spring 2013

The new Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Collection is a brand new range of liquid liners launching for Spring 2013. Milani is all kinds of legendary for creating some of thee most fabulous eyeliner pencils around.

I happen to be anti-liquid liner because I can’t apply it worth a damn. My hand gets all kinds of shaky when I’m anywhere near it, I feel too MADE up with it in place, and I definitely haven’t mastered the “flick” to get down the perfect cat eye look!

But I decided to give Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner a chance anyway!
