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!

Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection 3

Sorry guys little late with my review of the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection but quite fitting as the weather is so very Spring-like today. It was nice pulling this gorgeous kit out of my review pile and indulging in tropical hues and not worrying about how I had to get out my deep sea diving gear to make my way into the snow, wet, and cold! Today we got sun, a brisk cool breeze, and the birds chirping crazily in excitement that maybe, just maybe, Spring might be on the way!

I HOPE you all got your hands on this set but if not, no worries, it’s still available so after the review if you’re wanting it you can indulge!

Tokidoki Bellina Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Tokidoki Bellina Blush 3

Dude, totally snatched up the Tokidoki Bellina Blush last week! I simply couldn’t resist. I really loved the print of the Siberia Compact but the colors are kinda a blah mix of bronze and pink, no likey at all so I grabbed up Skate Girl which is a matte and shimmering shade of warm peach, loves!

I was quite excited for this release since outside of the recent Robbery Palette they don’t have any blushes. Wah! But wicked news with this release as we get two shades of fabulous blush, can we have more though?

I’d indulge!

Jump!

Wet n Wild Color Icon 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette Comfort Zone Review, Swatches, Photos

Hi there!

Sorry been really remiss with comments and have alot to get through but I promise to do them soon! It’s just a really busy time at my office so I’m having a hard time keeping up with my work life, my real life, and my blog life this month.

Hopefully my next review on the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection Palette I picked up will make up for my lack of communication lately!

I picked up all three of these new palettes that feature eight shades of eyeshadow for what, I think six bucks each ($5.99 if you’re technical). So far my favorite of the lot I selected was definitely Comfort Zone as it has some nice shades of brown and my favorite shades of green.

Sonia Kashuk Barely There Loose Powder Makeup Colorless Matte Review, Swatches, Photos

Sonia Barely There Loose Powder Makeup Colorless Matte 4

I make no secret of my love for The Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Brightening Powder however it proves a bit of a pain in the arse to find stateside. The Skin Food is a rather wonderful brand sold in Korea and other Asian countries but locating it online and proceeding to go through the hassle of jacked up pricing, airmail, etc…to get it can be tiresome for some. I’m lucky enough to have friends in Korea who indulge my makeup junkie nature and grab me items however I’m always looking for possible dupes of products that do the same thing and can be found locally for readers of Musings.

Sonia Barely There Loose Powder Makeup Colorless Matte is quickly turning into a fond fav of mine so much so that I feel comfortable recommending it as an alternative if you’re unable to get your hands on Salmon Dark Circle Brightening Powder.
