Bobbi Brown Art Stick Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Art Sticks

If you’re a Bobbi Brown Art Stick lover you’ll be happy to know that Hot Pink, Hot Berry, and Hot Orange are three limited edition shades which launched with the new Bobbi Brown Hot Collection for Spring 2015.

I always get excited when some product I really love gets introduced in new shades! Strangely enough though this is my first experience with Bobbi Brown’s Art Sticks which launched last year but this introduction only makes me want more of them!

They are divine!


E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette

The E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette ($6.99) is one of several, limited edition products launching with the E.L.F. Cosmetics Frozen Elsa Makeup Collection. As you might have noticed from a few my past posts E.L.F. has really gone all out with Elsa’s Collection. They are apparently doing things a lot differently this time and instead of launching items in sets they are doing cuter, individually palettes and makeup products.

Let’s take a look at the E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette!


Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick Review & Swatches

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slicks

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick ($18) is one of several new Ciate makeup products launching for Spring 2015 as a permanent part of the Ciate Collection. Most know Ciate is all about nails but they’ve been slowly venturing into the world of color cosmetics and this Spring they have launched an affordable mid-range collection of delicious makeup products!

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick is one of those products. This five shade selection liquid lipstick is a non drying, long wearing pigmented formula that makes for an excellent start in the makeup world!

Well done Ciate! You’ve successfully capture my attention with this lipstick and made me want to try more of your products.


Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

Oh lord where does one start with Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick ($2.99)? Jordana introduced Modern Matte Lipstick to their permanent color cosmetics collection for Spring 2015 in 12 shade selections. They market these as a “kiss your dry matte lipstick goodbye and say hello to modern matte” which implies to me they are hydrating. They also call them an all day wear formula without the typical dry lip finish that feathers and cracks.

Something got terribly lost in translation here!


Urban Decay Enigma Eyeshadow Primer Potion Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Enigma

Urban Decay Enigma Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($20) is a new, limited edition neutral matte shade of eyeshadow primer that was created for the new Urban Decay the Ultraviolet Edge program. As you know the Ultraviolet Edge is a new global initiative program that launched to empower women.

Urban Decay Enigma Eyeshadow Primer Potion is one of the first products launching on tht Ultravoilet Edge platform. This means 100% of your purchase price will go the Ultraviolet Edge which in turn donates that money to women charities and organizations.

Nifty right?

Problem? I love Engima so much that I need to stock up on a few hundred before it disappears :(
