NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator Review & Swatches

NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator

NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator is available in two shade selections and dare I say a great dupe for NARS Illuminator. At $7 a tube it’s a far nice option than NARS’ own $30 version.

I think you’ll particularly like Sunbeam which could be an easy replacement for Copacabana.

Maybelline Wild Blossom Blush Review & Swatches

Maybelline Blush  Wild Blossom

Maybelline Blush in Wild Blossom is one of three new baked blushes released with the Maybelline Color Goes Electric Collection. I picked up Wild Blossom on a whim as it quite reminded me of MAC Sakura Mineralize Blush released with the MAC Quite Cute Collection.

This a cool shimmering lilac shade that won’t work well on everyone. I knew for a fact I’d probably look silly in it but it was such a unique and different blush shade I decided to give it a try.


Maybelline Infra-Red Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Infra-Red

Maybelline pops into spring with a new selection of limited edition Vivids Lipstick. Infra-Red is one of three shades released with the Mabyelline Color Goes Electric Collection for Spring 2013.

You know how scared I am with red lipsticks. I typically like warmer shades of red but I find myself venturing out of my comfort zone more and more lately. For example, I adored the reds released with MAC Archie’s Girls and MAC’s Marilyn Monroe Collection.

Infra-Red is definitely a popping shade of red with an impressive texture, finish, and gorgeous pigment. It’s pretty powerful and quite bold and not really a shade I’d associate with Spring but adore it I do.
