Cheap Thrills with Four Fabulously Natural Shades of Eyeshadow from NYX

NYX Eyeshadows Pure Gold Golden Amber Golden Dune Gypsy Swatches 1

Every try NYX single shadows?


Some folks like to compare them to MAC Eyeshadow and they’d be right. The formula is postively dreamy on some of these shadows and they are only around $4 or $5 bucks each.


Here are four of my favorite shades of bronze, brown, khaki, and other naturals that work great on brown eyes.

For cheap thrills jump ahead.


I Can’t Wear MAC Russian Red But Sometimes I Like To Make Believe I Can!

MAC Fashion Sets Russian Red 35

Cult favorite, MAC Russian Red is all the rage for lips and tips this season thanks to the new MAC Fashion Sets Collection which pits up coordinating shades in a MAC Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer formula.

What’s better than MAC Russian Red? MAC Russian Red times three! Get that bold, legendary shade of red in a lipstick, lipglass, and nail lacquer formula now for a limited time.

As for me?

I can’t wear it but I had a hell of a fun time trying today.

I call it my Bozo the Clown look! Or Pennywise….yeah, that’s more me. Because, hey, what’s hotter than Tim Curry in Russian Red lipstick!


NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Moscow Summer 2012 Review & Swatches

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Moscow Summer 2012 3

Here’s an unexpected must have for Summer, the new NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow.

I thought for sure the matte finish would be too heavy for Summer and that the loud shade would be unwearable.

Proven wrong!

You NEED it.


Milani Powder Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Milani Powder Eyeshadow 186

Milani Powder Eyeshadows are a new range that include 12 colors in two finishes, Satin and Matte, that will be popping up in drugstores shortly if not already (I’ve seen them in CVS recently).

Milani already had single powder shadows but I can’t recall every trying them having always been terribly smitten with their sparkly Runway Eyeshadows.

I’m breaking this up into two posts. The first six shadows I’m featuring today are the satin ones and I’ll be reviewing the matte next week.

Take a peek!


L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss Tangerine Diamond Pink Amethyst Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Le Gloss Tangerine Diamond Pink Amethyst 1

L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss is a fav drugstore pick for me so I was quite excited that two new limited edition shades released for Summer 2012 in Tangerine Diamond and Pink Amethyst.

If you love these glosses I highly suggest snatching these shades up.
