Lorac Private Affair Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Lorac Private Affair Palette was one of the very first palettes that caught my fancy late this Summer when I saw it introduced as part of the Lorac Fall Collection 2010.

The palette is exclusive to Sephora is $38 and has six shadows, primer, and a brush which is housed in a rather slick, sexy little faux croc compact.

I think the shades called out to me most, actually one in particular, which was a gorgeous plumm-y wine. I really feel like Lorac is a bit understated and doesn’t get nearly enough love, they seriously have some killer offerings and the Private Affair Palette seemed like one such awesome offering.

Pop Beauty Mini Ribbon Gloss Set Review and Swatches

Pop Beauty Mini Ribbon Gloss Set 1

I admit my personality is such a major study in contradiction when it comes to pot lipglosses. On one side, I absolutely love cute pots of gloss but my other side reminds me how gross it is to stick my finger in for application, how untidy they are, and how they do not travel well.

But…

I love them so.

A few Summers ago I got some Flirt! Candy Stripes Glossy Lip Palettes and I gotta say they turned into one my very favorite products. They created some super gorgeous lips looks! I adored mixing and matching the colors and it seemed like every look I did with them was an awesome one.

Fast forward, present day, I hauled a Pop Beauty Mini Ribbon Gloss Set because it was 1. cheap as day old chips and 2. it reminded me so much of my beloved and long gone Candy Stripes Glossy Lips Palettes.

Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Magic Gloss Review, Swatches, and Photos

Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Magic Gloss 1

Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Magic Gloss how sweet are you? Playing at being a little dupe of Smashbox O-Gloss are you?

A buck, seventy nine can get you a tiny little tube of this limited edition gloss from Wet n Wild that promises you that perfect shade of just you lipgloss.

Yeah well, that body chemistry, “perfect” shade of you gloss has been a little overdone lately but hey this is budget friendly, we can all handle the under $2 buck price tag right?

I say buy it! Hell, buy two! I love it.

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. Now..it’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.
