Sephora Be You Lip Stain Review & Swatches

Sephora Be You Lip Stain 2

Sephora Be You Lip Stain is a new gel lip stain inspired with a tangerine-inspired color. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is a new product. Sephora has done lip gels and stains in the past but not one that was tangerine in color nor one that was self adjusting.

I was fairly curious about a self adjusting shade of tangerine so I purchased it.

Take a look!

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review & Swatches

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish 1

I really love Mineralize Skinfinishes so I do get pretty hyped when MAC releases new shades. Stereo Rose remains a fond favorite of mine and I’m always hopeful MAC will release more along the same formulation as that shade.

This year, they go a different route with MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish. I’m actually glad they decided to not to release another collection featuring Mineralize Skinfinishes, this is new, unique, and different so what’s not to love about something fresh and innovative in the MAC world eh?

Take a look!

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow 2

I feel like the MAC In Extra Dimension Collection is a new, exciting take on MAC’s traditional Mineralize release. I crave Mineralize Collections so this was an exciting collection.

I think it’s different for MAC as they haven’t really released something like it before but I’m also scared they might start doing one of these collections every few months thus overwhelming me with Extra Dimension Eyeshadows and Skinfinishes to the point I hate them, that happened with Mineralize Skinfinishes at some point in my makeup life.

But let’s not be negative, let’s talk positive.

Visually these are incredible. I’ll throw it out there and say they remind me of the the Velveeta Cheesy Skillet guy. I can picture him pouring MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadows, looking up at me with a twinkle eye in his eye, and saying, “Liquid Golddddd”.

Extra Dimension Eyeshadows are just incredible to look at. They look like just poured molten liquid metal.

Take a look!

Benefit Watt’s Up! Review & Swatches

Benefit Watts Up 2012

The mysteries of highlighter application allude me. I think there’s some secret club that specializes in the application of highlighter, a “what happens in highlighting club application, stays in highlighter club application!” mentality that doesn’t let anyone else in on the secrets of proper application.

I think said club is run by Norman Reedus, he looks like he’ll kick your ass if you don’t get hightlighting application down correct. Am I right?

Benefit Watts Up

But Benefit says to hell with that. Highlighter Club can go stick it! Because we’ll make highlighting so easy anyone, even the Muse, can do it!

Jump!
