Maybelline Bronze Tapestry Shimmer Blush Review & Swatches

Maybelline Gilded in Gold Blush

Maybelline Bronze Tapestry Shimmer Blush is a new limited edition blush that released with the Maybelline Gilded in Gold Collection for Holiday 2013. The color reminded me a bit of the Maybelline Gold Fuse Blush that launched for Spring 2013 for some reason. Granted they aren’t the same shade at all but it’s interesting the way Maybelline keeps with the same color scheme here the way they did for the Spring Collection by releasing two colorful shades and one bronze-y one.

Take a look!

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is one of three new matte shades of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow released with the Maybelline Gilded in Gold Holiday 2013 Collection.

I’m not a big matte fan but I adore shades like Maybelline Just Beige Color Tattoo Eyeshadow because they are great essential shades of color you’ll likely reach for daily to prep eyes with. Colors like Milani Naturally Chic Shadow Eyez 12 HR Wear Eyeshadow in Almond Cream, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Navajo and Nude Beach come to mind when I think of simple yet perfect prepping shades or nude eye looks and Maybelline Just Beige fits right in with colors like this. They are simple yet become staples of our everyday eye looks for not only prepping with but also for days we just want a simple eye look without a ton of fanfare.

Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Balm by Color Sensational Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Balm

Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Balm by Color Sensational is a new lipstick slash lipgloss slash lip balm hybrid that just launched for Winter 2013 in twenty different shades.

Maybelline Color Elixir Liquid Color Balm ($6.79) delivers the color of a lipstick, the hydrating cushy feel of a balm, and the shine of a gloss. Although the idea of a color liquid lip balm may sound revolutionary it really isn’t as Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm released a few short months ago. None the less these sounds VERY interesting…
