Stila Coconut Crush Lip & Cheek Stain Review, Swatches, Photos

Stila Coconut Crush Lip Cheek Stain 2

Ahh new season, new Stila Lip Crush. I think we are heading onto our seventh generation of the product now. So that’s seven shades you can select from yay!

I think they should gather them all up, package them together, and slap a ribbon on ‘em for Holiday 2011 eh? I like ‘em so much I’d totally buy a complete set.

The newest generation is the Stila Coconut Crush Lip & Cheek Stain. Since we tackled every other fruit, coconut sounds like a good one to try out next!

Jump!

We had quite a good deal of questions regarding the Tarte Amazonian Clay Balancing Foundation SPF 15 and the best shade selection as some of you were confused what the shade you were. I’m happy to share with you full collection swatches today. Tarte was very helpful to provide me with some great swatches of not only the foundation but also everything else in the kit!

Now that I’ve actually seen the swatches, I think I’m even more excited about the kit! The blush and shadows look incredible.

I hope this is helpful for your purchase. You can pre-order the set already by using item number A216307.

Do share if you’ll be purchasing it!

Bobbi Brown + Tibi Peony & Python Collection Neiman Marcus Exclusive Review, Swatches, Photos

Bobbi Brown + Tibi Peony Python Collection Neiman Marcus Exclusive 17

Bobbi, Bobbi, Bobbi! I love you for recreating bronzer and making it into something other than a dull, lackluster muddy shade and instead creating something with a pop of gorgeous color!

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer is one of my very favorite bronzers around the town and I’ve reviewed them in the past (please see my past review here and here) but the new Bobbi Brown Peony & Python Collection Neiman Marcus Exclusive comes with a popping shade of Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer that you simply must have!

Check it!

Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener & Concealer Duo Review, Swatches, Photos

Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener Concealer Duo 9

Although drying, I had pretty good success with Hard Candy Glamoflauge and I honestly wasn’t expecting a new concealer from the brand so soon after the release of Glamoflauge.

But here we are a few months later and a brand new concealer to discover from the brand. Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener & Concealer Duo not only addresses my dark circles but also my puffiness in one easy to use concealer.

Any good?

Let’s check it out and see!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 2

When I think matte, I think Dita von Teese. That girl wears red matte lipstick like she was born with it on her mouth. Stunning, simply stunning!

However, when I try to wear it, well, it’s far from stunning and more in the realms of hello Bozo the Clown. Plus it tends to migrate around my mouth, onto my chin, up my cheek, and across my forehead. Needless to say, it’s messy as hell for some reason and I can’t pull it off.

As with eyeshadow, lipstick and lip creams in a matte finish just don’t get on well with me for some reason.

Maybe NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream can change my mind!
