Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher Review, Swatches, Photos

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher 001

Holika Holika is a Korean brand with a Harry Potter-ish kinda theme. The stores are decked out in shades of purple and black, employee uniforms have a witch-y vibe, and the brand takes lotions and potions to a new, magical level. I think the entire magic, witch, goth theme draws alot of attention and gives the brand its own little niche plus chalk up the traditional kawaii packaging that Korean and Asian brands in general embrace and you have yourself a happy helping of fabulous for makeup junkies.

I’ve reviewed a few Holika Holika products and today I hauled out the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher that I picked up a several weeks ago. This blush will remind you of the packaging of the Aqua Petit Jelly I reviewed a few months ago.

Take a look!

Stila Coral Custom Color Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Stila Coral Custom Color Blush 001

Stila Custom Color Blush is a pH-Based powder that supposedly takes the chore out of choosing your perfect shade of blush. You see, it creates the perfect shade of personalized blush for you.

Awesome eh?

It doesn’t work.

I tried the Self-Adjusting Pink shade last year when the product was originally introduced and I loved it. Formula, pigment, etc…it’s a nice blush all the way around but as far as adjusting to be my perfect shade of pink? Nay I say.

This year, Stila introduced a new Self-Adjusting Coral shade and I was on that baby because I’m all about corals, peaches, etc…Love those shades not only because they look rather nice on my cheeks but also because it’s a fab color for Fall.

Let’s take a peek at Stila Self Adjusting-Coral Custom Color Blush!

Nuance Salma Hayek Rose Petal Hydrating Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

Nuance Salma Hayek Rose Petal Hydrating Balm 002

My love for Rosebud Salve really knows no bounds. I keep one in my desk drawer, one on my desk, one on my nightstand, one on my vanity, one in my bathroom….yeah, well, I’m obsessed with, I’ve made no secret about that.

But I’m a beauty junkie and therefore I have no loyalties to any one product so I’m always willing to try something new! Eep! How horrid of me to go cheating on Rosebud Salve but sorry the new Nuance Salma Hayek Rose Petal Hydrating Balm looked mighty interesting and it whispered at me to take it home since its on sale this week at CVS.

It didn’t take a whole lot of urging from the balm to actually get me to buy it….!

Jump!

Stila Love and Empower Set Swatches

Stila Love and Empower Set Swatches 001

The new Stila Love and Empower Set is a palette inspired by the book, The Help, which is about a twenty-something year old named Skeeter who is a southern girl who returns home after graduating from college in 1962 and proceeds to turn her small town upside down by interviewing the African American women who have spent their lives taking care of rich southern families. What insures is a story about the empowerment of women, both from lower and upper classes.

To celebrate both the book and the film Stila has created the Love and Empower Set which I briefly discussed last week.

Here are a few swatches of the new palette and I’ll follow up with a review later this week!
