Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color Review & Swatches

Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color Lip Care

I’m actually a massive Labello fan but our Nivea equivalent never really did it for me. But the new Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color was a tempting little morsel that had the potential to change my mind.

Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color is a recent addition to the Nivea Lip Balm world that comes in four shades and features a moisture core surrounded by a tinted glossy balm. Sounds nifty right?

Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Vintage Plum

Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is another, matte Leather Color Tattoo Eyeshadow launching with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection.

I recently ran across a display featuring all five of the new “Leather” Color Tattoo Eyeshadows for Fall 2014 and being as obsessed with them I’m quite happy they have five, new shades. A reader recently tweeted Maybelline about these and they replied they are indeed permanent. So I’m tentatively saying these will be around to stay so if you can’t find them now, you surely will as we head deeper into Summer.

Vintage Plum is one of the four shades that happens to be matte in finish. So many fans will be happy these do not contain shimmer or sparkle of any kind.

Let’s take a look!
