Stila Love and Empower Set Swatches

Stila Love and Empower Set Swatches 001

The new Stila Love and Empower Set is a palette inspired by the book, The Help, which is about a twenty-something year old named Skeeter who is a southern girl who returns home after graduating from college in 1962 and proceeds to turn her small town upside down by interviewing the African American women who have spent their lives taking care of rich southern families. What insures is a story about the empowerment of women, both from lower and upper classes.

To celebrate both the book and the film Stila has created the Love and Empower Set which I briefly discussed last week.

Here are a few swatches of the new palette and I’ll follow up with a review later this week!

Stila Custom Color Blush Self-Adjusting Coral Swatches

Stila Custom Color Blush Self Adjusting Coral

Last year, Stila released its Custom Color Blush in a tickled shade of pink. Although I don’t buy into the whole “self-adjusting” blush deal, I still really loved that color and thought it was a rather nice shade of pink.

This Fall, Stila Custom Color Blush comes in a new Coral shade…

Take a look!

Wet n Wild DreamWeaver ColorIcon Trio Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild DreamWeaver ColorIcon Trio Eyeshadow Palette 002

Wet n Wild hasn’t always been a brand on my hit list. Let’s face it, the packaging screams cheaper, the price makes us wonder how anything that costs less than $3 could be an effective cosmetic product, and our inner snobs demand we stay far away from it.

But you can call me wrong and make me eat my words about Wet n Wild because the brand does, indeed, have some hidden gems amongst all those $1.99 price tags.

Recently, they introduced a selection of six ColorIcon Trio Palettes for Summer. The Wet n Wild Dreamweavers Collection contains all of these trios for a limited time with a price tag of merely $2.69 each (prices will vary depending where you shop it). Some of these palettes are quite exciting since the shade selection is much like the Holiday ColorIcon Six Shadow Palettes.

Let’s take a look at some of the Wet n Wild Dreamweaver ColorIcon Trio Palettes.

Beauty on a Budget: LA Splash Eye Sparkle Review, Swatches, Photos

LA Splash Eye Sparkle 001

I’m not of a mineral eyeshadow girl for two reasons. 1. Fall out….! Ugh anything loose is always turns into a dramatic application for me and 2. if I start indulging in mineral eyeshadows from various e-tailers I’ll be in a whole hell of alot of trouble. I already have enough beauty addictions! I could just picture myself with endless baggies and small jars of piggie laying all over the place.

No, thanks.

I did indulge in a few LA Splash Eye Sparkles though as they are Buy 2, Get 1 Free at Cherry Culture.

Check ‘em!

Rimmel Match Perfect Skin Tone Adapting Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Rimmel Match Perfect Skin Tone Adapting Concealer 001

Ahh skin tone adapting blush, lipgloss, foundation, concealer….I want skin tone adapting eyeshadow!

Seriously, though in most cases skin tone adapting anything doesn’t exactly work. The idea is innovative, the concept is way cool for beauty lovers who just want something that will fit them perfectly, and let’s face it our simple side is thinking how cool it would be to buy something that just works the first time, no color matching required, it’ll adapt!

Rimmel Match Perfect Skin Tone Adapting Concealer is the latest crazy to get my attention in the tone adapting world.

Let’s take a look!
