Milani American Beauty Rose Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Milani American Beauty Rose Powder Blush

Milani American Beauty Rose Powder Blush ($7.99) is one of three limited edition Summer 2015 Rose Powder Blush shades that are available now on Milan’s website for purchase. As a fan of Milani Rose Powder Blush I admit to not being terribly excited about these new shades. It’s not because of the formula as I’ve always enjoyed the Rose Powder Blush formula! It’s just because the shades they release are quite repetitive.

What set the new limited edition shades apart were the fact all three had a luminous finish versus the satiny matte finish of many of the past releases.

Let’s take a peek at American Beauty!


Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Lip Pencils ($6.50) are a new variation of the beloved Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in a new style packaging that launched within Australia and Asia (I don’t believe these are available in Europe as yet but feel free to correct me if they are). Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow are the fourth product to join the Maybelline Baby Lips family which now includes the original Baby Lips Lip Balm plus Baby Lips Lipgloss and of course, Baby Skin Primer! I’m still waiting for Baby Skin Blush to pop up somewhere, sometime soon!

Let’s take a look at Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow!


Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools


I love a beauty budget deal but I don’t like forsaking quality for something cheaper. To many times I purchase a makeup or beauty product for a few dollars, get it home, and I’m disappointed with the performance.

So of course, like any good shopper, I’m always excited when I find a beauty product cheaper but also one that’s of excellent quality! So it goes with Ecotools! I remember the first post I did about Ecotools in 2008 and I also remember being a bit of a snob about makeup brushes at the time but quickly changing my mind when I realized how great their line of brushes was!

So for those who like a deal but don’t want for forsake quality here are some Budget Friendly Brushes for Hair and Face from EcoTools that I’ve been loving on recently.
