Stila Love and Empower Palette 001

As much as I wanna say, “OMG! Go get yourself a Stila Love and Empower Set”…I’ll refrain.

I ranted a tad bit about the price tag in a post recently and after purchasing and trying out the palette, well, the price point plus the performance of the palette have combined and given me a headache and a heartache.

Nuance Salma Hayek Color Vibrance Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Nuance Salma Hayek Color Vibrance Lipstick 001

If you told me a few months ago I’d be raving a celebrity makeup brand I’d have called you a liar.

But…

It’s true.

The verdict is out and so far the new Nuance by Salma Hayek Collection is a go. Whoa! Likey this stuff alot. Anyone try?

Thoughts so far?

Do share!

I picked up two of the Color Vibrance Lipsticks thanks to the awesome CVS BOGO offer going on at the moment (Buy One, Get One Free) and I like them, alot. That’s saying something about drugstore lipsticks as I always have issues with lippies from my local drugstore.

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher 001

Holika Holika is a Korean brand with a Harry Potter-ish kinda theme. The stores are decked out in shades of purple and black, employee uniforms have a witch-y vibe, and the brand takes lotions and potions to a new, magical level. I think the entire magic, witch, goth theme draws alot of attention and gives the brand its own little niche plus chalk up the traditional kawaii packaging that Korean and Asian brands in general embrace and you have yourself a happy helping of fabulous for makeup junkies.

I’ve reviewed a few Holika Holika products and today I hauled out the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher that I picked up a several weeks ago. This blush will remind you of the packaging of the Aqua Petit Jelly I reviewed a few months ago.

Take a look!

Stila Coral Custom Color Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Stila Coral Custom Color Blush 001

Stila Custom Color Blush is a pH-Based powder that supposedly takes the chore out of choosing your perfect shade of blush. You see, it creates the perfect shade of personalized blush for you.

Awesome eh?

It doesn’t work.

I tried the Self-Adjusting Pink shade last year when the product was originally introduced and I loved it. Formula, pigment, etc…it’s a nice blush all the way around but as far as adjusting to be my perfect shade of pink? Nay I say.

This year, Stila introduced a new Self-Adjusting Coral shade and I was on that baby because I’m all about corals, peaches, etc…Love those shades not only because they look rather nice on my cheeks but also because it’s a fab color for Fall.

Let’s take a peek at Stila Self Adjusting-Coral Custom Color Blush!
