Maybelline Blush in Wild Blossom is one of three new baked blushes released with the Maybelline Color Goes Electric Collection. I picked up Wild Blossom on a whim as it quite reminded me of MAC Sakura Mineralize Blush released with the MAC Quite Cute Collection.
This a cool shimmering lilac shade that won’t work well on everyone. I knew for a fact I’d probably look silly in it but it was such a unique and different blush shade I decided to give it a try.
Maybelline pops into spring with a new selection of limited edition Vivids Lipstick. Infra-Red is one of three shades released with the Mabyelline Color Goes Electric Collection for Spring 2013.
You know how scared I am with red lipsticks. I typically like warmer shades of red but I find myself venturing out of my comfort zone more and more lately. For example, I adored the reds released with MAC Archie’s Girls and MAC’s Marilyn Monroe Collection.
Infra-Red is definitely a popping shade of red with an impressive texture, finish, and gorgeous pigment. It’s pretty powerful and quite bold and not really a shade I’d associate with Spring but adore it I do.
Take a look!
Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm is available in five new, limited edition shades for Spring. I recently picked up the Coral Crush Baby Lips Balm as I can’t resist anything in coral, orange, or peach (you know my addiction well don’t you?).
I’m not a terribly big fan of Baby Lips but they seem to evolved a little since I last tried them out.
Here are a few thoughts on Coral Crush.
NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.
I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!
But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.
Does NYX’s version work?
