Avon ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit Review and Swatches

I got an earworm this morning and it goes something like this, “So I put my hands up, They’re playing my song, And the butterflys fly away! Noddin’ my head like yeah, Moving my hips like yeah, And I got my hands up, They’re playin my song, I know I’m gonna be ok Yeah, It’s a party in the USA, Yeah, It’s a party in the USA!

Oh god. Someone stop me please.

Miley Cyrus was on Graham Norton and I was flipping through it this morning now I can’t get the damn song out of my head. Ugh. I wanted to see Jack Whitehall but bloody Miley kept getting in the way grrrr!

Anyway.

That was so off the topic of makeup right?

Anyone see the new Avon ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit? Possibly a cool budget pick!

Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer Review and Swatches

I’m in a constant battle with dark circles, bane of my utter bloody existence. The makeup gods look down on me and cackle punishing me with not only dark circles but puffiness. I think I’m in more of a battle with the bulge (puffiness) than I am with dark circles most days of my life.

So of course I’m all about trying as many concealers as my make up life permits. I have about 25 different concealers that I rotate daily to see which gets me the most flawless look of all and I’m constantly trying new ones. Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer is one that recently crossed my dark circle path and I’ve been having a little test with it this week and I gotta say for those of you with dark circles you’ll probably likey this little guy alot.

Stila Custom Color Blush Review and Swatches

Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.

Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.

Let me tell you the Candyman can take a sunrise, spirkle that shiz with dew, cover it in chocolate, and a miracle or two but he ain’t got nuttin’ on Make Up For Ever.

Make Up For Ever can completely re-launch their lipstick range with Rouge Intense and make them available in 50 brand new shades plus slap an easy color wheel Lipstick Shade Finder together so you can find your perfect lipstick shade.

MAC Dazzle Lipstick Baby’s on Fire Review and Swatches: MAC Digi-Pops Collection Review and Swatches

Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!

No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.

MAC Dazzle Lipstick Babys on Fire 1

MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.

Sad sigh.

Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.

Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.
