NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection 19

Ahh beauty budget girls gather round and heck even my high enders come on down.

When you think of roses you may think Spring and that’s exactly when the MAC Rose Romance Collection launched. It was one of my favorite collections as of late from the brand because of some of the interesting products released with it such as the Just a Pinch Gel. The fragrance, the makeup, and just everything about the collection was really exciting to me.

Flash forward to Fall 2010 and NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection has launched.’s not Spring and it is beauty on a budget so one wonders do you need any of it? Some of the more snobbish makeup users will beg a big no on this however those watching their wallets will find this is a beautiful little collection that warrants a haul. Shades aren’t particularly Fall but believe it or not they manage to work quite well for a warmer look.

Stila Lip Rouge Review and Swatches

Stila Lip Rouge 1

Stila is on Hautelook today, super steals and deals chicas! One item that’s up are the Stila Lip Rouge which are $6 each, quite a nice little price down from the original price tag of…mmm..I believe $20 bucks.

I happen to be a mega fan of lip stains and these fit the bill for a great dash of natural color on lips plus hey, $6 bucks, can’t beat it.

Have a look at the swatches and review below and share what you hauled from today’s sale.

Jordana Neon Alert Collection Jordana Bright Eyes Eyeliner Review

Jordana Neon Alert Collection 3

My offerings to the Makeup Gods have simply not been enough and I’ve possibly pissed them off because on a recent foray through Walgreens I came across a very empty display of the new limited edition Jordana Neon Alert Collection. That display was so empty it was whistling.

And is it any wonder as it’s cheap as day old chips and has some really killer offerings!

Check it!


Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette 19

Curious minds, did anyone grab up the Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette during Stila’s Happy Hour on Friday?

It was $18 and features a color wheel design with 13 shades of Stila Eyeshadow. Happy days! It’s sadly gone from Stila now but it’ll be back in October debuting with the Stila Holiday Collection 2010.

The good news, if you didn’t grab it for yourself, is I have one that I swatched up for you and did a few looks with.
