NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie Review & Swatches

NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie

NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie ($6) just launched for Spring 2014 in twelve sheer and lovely shades. I’m overjoyed NYX Cosmetics decided to dip their toes in the chubby, chunky pencil world as I really have not gotten my fill of this fabulous trend.

These are light, sheer, and perfect for Spring and Summer lip looks! They happen to be the lightest formula I’ve tried in the chubby pencil world which makes them a brilliant pick up. And hey, loving that beauty on a budget $6 price tag too!

Maybelline Luminous Lilac Color Elixir

Maybelline Luminous Lilac Color Elixir is another of the newest Summer 2014 shades launched with the Bleached Neons Collection. This is a limited edition shade so if you’re loving it best grab yourself a back up or two!

Since there is a bit of a shortage of lilac or purple-y drugstore lipglosses I’d that makes Luminous Lilac special.

Take a peek!

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation

So I’ve been very delayed bringing you my review of Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation. I pre-ordered the Bare Skin Serum Foundation as soon as it launched on QVC and I got it soon after my order. I must have been lucky because mine arrived soon after I ordered but I’m hearing people just got their order recently?! I’m not sure why I was lucky but I was so I had nearly a month to use it and play around with it etc…!

Basically the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Foundation is both a mineral foundation and a skincare serum in one. It provides coverage as it treats your skin.

Interesting concept right? When I first heard about it I was thinking of perhaps a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup style formula but this is actually completely unique to some of the new fad liquid foundations. Most formulas I’ve tried in this area are typically water based but also have a gel-like consistency. THIS is a fluid foundation but it has more of a serum, watery texture versus a gel.

Let’s take a look.

Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette2

The Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow Palette ($46) is one of two new Kat Von D Eyeshadow Palettes for Summer 2014.

I’m unsure if this palette is limited edition but I think it might just be permanent. It’s actually a completely new variation of palette compared to the True Romance Palettes as it is considerably bigger in size. I’m both delighted and somewhat meh about the new packaging. For one thing it reverts back to cardboard! Recently many of the True Romance Palettes were repackaged in plastic compacts and I’d have loved for this to have a similar packaging. None the less it is a sturdy cardboard compact with a very generously sized mirror and some fantastic art on the cover and inside the palette. I actually placed my Ladybird Palette on top of it so you can get a feel for the dramatic size increase.
