Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Blusher Review & Swatches

Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Blusher 3

Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Blusher in Casablanca ($11.99) is a new, limited edition blush sphere that launched with the Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Spring 2015 Makeup Collection.

I admit to falling in love with this at a glance because not only do I love coral blushes with a passion but also because I thought the packaging was too cute! It quite reminded me of the new Ciate Blush spheres as well as the Guerlain Meteorites Bubble Blush. When you have great packaging it does draw me in for sure!

But I digress what really caught my eye about the new Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Blusher was the color. I’m a mush for corals! This is such a fabulous shade of orange-y coral with incredible pigmentation!

Take a look!

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder Review & Swatches

New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder ($3.99) just recently launched in two shades selections for Spring 2015 that will be available permanently at drugstores. I absolutely adore NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme and I thought that NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder would be something nice to set it to in the Summer when the weather is warmer.

As you now I have drier skin and I rarely set my makeup with powder or wear powder foundations, etc…! However, in the Summer I do reach for powder more often than not. Since I do NYC’s BB Creme formula I thought paired up with this powder I could get a nice, sheer natural look that would wear all day as lord knows on a humid Manhattan day there’s no way the BB Creme along will stick around without setting with powder.

Let’s take a look!

NYC New York Color Cosmetics Expert Last Lip Lacquers

Currently I’m in love with NYC New York Color Cosmetics Expert Last Lip Lacquer ($3.99) and questioning why I have never tried them before this!?

Expert Last Lip Lacquer is a liquid lip lacquer that launches about a year ago in several sahdes to the NYC New York Color Cosmetics permanent collection. More recently a few new shades for Spring 2015 launched which is one reason I’ve taken slight notice of them.

If you haven’t tried these yet, trust me, you need them!
