Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss

Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss is a six shade permanent lipgloss collection launching with the Milani Spring 2015 Collection!

So far Milani has been hit or miss with their Spring collection. The new Eyeshine Palettes have disappointed as have the Fierce Foil Eyeliners (although I admit to using these often and loving them none the less). I expected the Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss to hopefully prove better than what I’ve seen so far but unfortunately, these are a mess!

Take a look!

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Expert Wear Shadow Palette At Walmart

k2-_f12ce871-3e2a-4175-8eab-65c6fd8b01f3.v1

So today I reviewed the Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette and I, well, to put it kindly, I hated it! So why in the world do I have a lemming for this Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Expert Wear Shadow Palette which is lurking on the Walmart.com site at the moment?

Do I need it?

Hell no!

Do I want it?

Hell yes!

It’s likely as dry and as dense as the Smokes and the Nudes Palette that I already own which makes me question my lemming sanity.

Ah the life of a makeup junkie.

One can hope that the Blushed Nudes proves better than what I’ve seen so far from these palettes.

Thoughts?

Might this change my (our) mind?

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base ($17) gets a relaunch in new packaging for Spring 2015. You might recall that NYX originally launched this face primer back in 2011 with a range of other HD products.

Along with the Spring 2015 Collection they have relaunched NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer Base in a new tube that’s a little larger and a little more pricier than the original

Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette

Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette is a new Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palette featuring twelve shades of eyeshadow. We saw the Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette earlier last year and there were plenty of rumors on the horizon that more of these Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palettes would be popping up!

And it’s true! Not only do we have the Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette (Exclusively at Walgreens) available but also a Maybelline the Brights Eyeshadow Palette which is exclusive to Target as well as a The Blushes Nudes Palette available at Walmart.

So that’s four different palettes to look forward.

But I digress, let’s concentrate on the Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette for now.

Here are some thoughts!
