Anyone try out the new Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Lipstick Collection yet? I was fiddling about with these several days ago at my local drugstore. I thank the makeup gods daily that Maybelline gifts us with Color Sensational Lipstick packaging that isn’t SEALED. I hate a sealed lipstick…OMG annoying. How am I supposed to know what it looks like if I can’t twist it up and have a little peeky?
Maybelline Color Sensational The Pearls Collection is basically the newest extension to the Sensational Lipstick line which sports a pearl finish. Now….I dunno if these are LE. I’m going to say no but I’m not really sure in all honesty.
After twisting up every single tube (there was a girl stocking in the aisle as I twisted, she must have thought I was loco) I came to the conclusion that these so reminded me of the MAC N Collection.
I HATED the N Collection. Way too modd-y nude for me. Well…moral of the story is The Pearls have some mod nude shades I so couldn’t pull off even if I wanted to.
However, I did strike gold with one shade which was Coral Gleam.
A long time ago in a not so distant past Bobbi Brown released my VERY favorite collection to date, Blushed Pink. I sweated so hard on the Bobbi Brown Blushed Pink release, you’ve no idea. One of the main reasons I loved it so much was the release of four Sparkle Eye Shadows that Bobbi has yet to reintroduce or recreate in any collection.
One shade, which I’m wearing here, happens to be my HG pink eyeshadow shades, it was called Ballet.
Fast forward a few seasons and the Bobbi Brown Beach Club Collection releases and much to my delight the new Bobbi Brown Metallic Cream Eyeshadow in Pink Oyster is a super dupe for Ballet.
Ahh all is right with my makeup world again!
Although difficult to work with, I still adore loose mineral blushes. Bare Escentuals has SO many vibrant shades that I simply can’t say no to, I also pretty much dig all over the more bolder shades Aromaleigh and Medusa Cosmetics offers as well!
On a whim I purchased some IsaDora Mineral Blush Powder and now I’m totally obsessed with it.
Tis the season for tinted moisturizers dears. I’m all for light wearing base in the Summer. Seriously, who wants a ton of goopey foundation on their face in 90 degree weather. Ummm no! Cargo Tinted Moisturizer is light coverage with an SPF 20….
On board with that?
Gather around kids.
Let me tell you something. Don’t let ANYONE ever telling you that spending less on product is a good idea. In some cases you may get lucky when you go the budget route but in my experience it’s rare that you actually snag something worthy of it’s $4 buck price tag.
For example, Bonnie Bell My Style Concealer is a mere $3.49. Sounds to good too be true doesn’t it?
