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!

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow is a nice little budget pick if you’re lemming or liking Covergirl Intense Shadowblast. You wouldn’t think you’d need an even more friendly budget option when it comes to Covergirl but their version can run from $9.99-$11.99 at drugstores and E.L.F.’s version is a mere two bucks a pop!

Did I like them?

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!

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

I recently located Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner at my local Harmons. These launched earlier last year in the UK however, they are newly launched for Spring 2013 here in the US. The displays were originally limited to three shades however, the pencil has since launched as part of the general catalog and includes ten total shades (including a nude shade for brightening eyes!).

At under $5 per liner they are an ideal pick up for those on a budget. At Ulta they are currently $4.49 each and available as a BOGO offer so you can get the second pencil at 50% Off! Score!

Here are some thoughts!
