Beauty on a Budget

NYX Box of Eye Shadows

NYX Box of Eye Shadows 1

I’ve been on a mad palette frenzy lately and I’m trying to refrain from thinking about how I don’t need several palettes that all contain the same colors. If I suppress this feeling I can continue on my merry way sans guilt you see.

My latest lem?

The NYX Box of Eye Shadows.

If it’s anything like the regular line of shadows and some of the smaller shades, well, it’ll be a must have.

Physicians Formula Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner 1

Physicians Formula has a new Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner available for the Holidays. The collection features three new strips of Shimmer Eyeliner and three new mascaras. They break these up into eye color groups as in “select this color to flatter blue eyes”, “select this color to flatter brown eyes” and so on and so forth. I’m personally not keen on anyone telling me what flatters my eyes most as I’m of the mentality that anyone can wear any shade of color they choose. Granted some shades simply don’t work for me but most are a-ok and I don’t limit what I wear because I have brown eyes…..Just because I have brown eyes doesn’t mean I have to stick to wearing golds, browns, and black because Physicians Formula told me so.

Get my rant?

Aside from that the idea behind the product is interesting since it gives you not one, not two, but three gel eyeliners in stackable jars.

Good stuff?

Let’s see.

Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Has anyone tried the Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls? I’ve stayed away from them for a while now because I feared they’d apply to frosty. I can’t dig the frost.

Recently, I came across the new Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Blush and was pretty skeptical since they looked pretty frosty too. The original Glow Pearls were a highlighter type of powder where as this version is a blusher. Looking at them I was absolutely gasping for breath because pretty is an understatement. They are really pretty pieces of makeup that can get a beauty junkies panties in a twist. However, my logical side whispered in my ear about how they would probably apply frosty so I sat at the display for a quarter of an hour debating if I needed them or not. After a few more minutes went by I decided I’d just try one color and after ten more minutes went buy I walked out of the store with both colors they had.

Did I like them?

Did they apply frosty?

I’ll tell you next week!

Ha, only kidding!
