Missed Opportunities with this Forever 21 Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette

Forever 21 Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette

Did you miss out on the MAC Stroke of Midnight Cinderella Eyeshadow Palette? It sold out as fast as the Target Lily Pulitzer Collection did.

It’s not a dupe but if you missed the opportunity to own the MAC Cinderella Eyeshadow Palette perhaps the cheap as chips Forever 21 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette ($5.90) might appease your lemmings for a brief, hot flash of a second!

They kinda look a little similar don’t they? Shrug! Not MAC Cinderella but hey, sometimes you gotta make due! :)

Grab it now at Forever 21 or online at forever21.com.

Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist Review

Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist

I recently purchased Yves Rocher Pink Grapefruit Vitamin Face Mist ($5) because you know I don’t have nearly ENOUGH facial mist in my life. Yeah, so if it was a toss up between facial mists and hand soaps I’d have to say I hoarded both like they are never going to be made again.

One of my skincare staples is facial mist! I love really hydrating mists to prep my skin for my other skincare. I don’t typically set with facial mists but I do use them to prep my skin so after a shower I’m misting away or in the evening after removing my makeup the first thing I do after a cleanse is mist.

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection Launches in the US

L'Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection has launched in the US and is now available exclusively at Walgreens! You might recall last year L’Oreal introduced the Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipstick which consisted of six shades of nude lipsticks! This year the L’Oreal Collection Private Reds Lipstick Collection has a selection of nine shades of red.

Just like the Collection Privee Colour Collection these are nine shades of custom made red shades which are based upon L’Oreal celebrity models each of which has a different skin tone enabling you to make the perfect selection of red (although I’m of the mentality you shouldn’t limited yourself when it comes to different colors of reds! Be a rebel, try something new, you might love it!).

I believe the original L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection in the UK consisted of only four shades! So we are getting a considerable larger collection in the US.

Maybelline 100 Years Baby Lips Limited Edition Collection

Maybelline 100 Years Baby Lips Limited Edition Collection

Maybelline 100 Years Baby Lips Limited Edition Collection is a new, limited edition packaged range of Baby Lips Lip Balm available in four shade selections in the regular Baby Lips line as well as the Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm.

I imagine this is just one of the collections to come celebrating Maybelline’s 100 Year Anniversary because as of now they even have a website set up at maybelline.com/100 so I suspect you’ll see more displays and collections like this as we head deeper into Summer!

Wet n Wild Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick6

Wet n Wild Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick cost me a whole .99 cents and I’m Muse Approving it. People, I have lipsticks in my stash that set me back $50 bucks and I’m just throwing it all out the window and recommending you pick up at least ONE shade of Silk Finish Lipstick and tell me you don’t love it.
