Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick Review & Swatches

Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick

Maybelline Touchable Taupe Color Sensational Lipstick is one of several new nude shades of lipstick that Maybelline has introduced entitled “The Buffs”.

I’m going to take a deep breath and say it…this reminds me of poop. Or melted milk chocolate. Perhaps poop is a more accurate description though. Just keeping it real peeps.


Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints Review & Swatches

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints ($4.49) are a new permanent cream eyeshadow launching at drugstores this Spring 2014. I recently ran across them at my local Harmons but was only able to snag two shades as the display was completely cleared out.

I believe they are available in five shades and remind me a good deal of NYX Cream Shadow in consistency, formula, and finish.

Let’s take a look!


Milani Pretty Natural Color Statement Lipstick Review & Swatches

Milani Pretty Natural Color Statement Lipstick3

Milani Pretty Natural Color Statement Lipstick is just one of several new permanent shades in the Color Statement Lipstick Collection. I’m such a suck for shades like Pretty Natural as it is one of those pretty MLBB (my lips but better) pinks that I adore.

What sort of MLBB shades do you love? One of my top favs is Urban Decay Naked Lipstick and Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick and Lipgloss.

Pretty Natural def is up there with great my lip but better shades but it is a bit drying…!
