NARS Lipstick Autumn Leaves Review & Swatches

NARS Lipstick Autumn Leaves 4

Come on baby light my fire. I’m lighting my lips up today with NARS Lipstick in Autumn Leaves.

My eclectic taste in music demands I post a video of one of my music gods, Mr. Jim Morrison, who possibly spent a majority of his musical career tripping.

Jim wasn’t privy to a good fiery shade of lipstick in his hay day but thankfully we are.

You NEED NARS Lipstick in Autumn Leaves.

’nuff said.

Jump for it.

Lorac Pro Palette Review & Swatches

Lorac Pro Palette 1

Oh well hello Lorac Pro Palette wanna be my new best friend forever? The new Lorac Pro Palette ($42) is newly launched for Fall 2012 and includes sixteen fabulous shades of eyeshadow as well as a Mini Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer.

I feel like it’s Christmas! What a surprise for Fall to get such a wide range of eyeshadows in a single compact.

Of course, I instantly had a makeup boner (am I allowed to say that on here?) when I saw it pop up on Sephora. Lorac has a fairly great track record and releases high quality palettes again and again and again. I also feel like they offer enough variety in these palettes that they are worth picking up without worrying about dupes in past palettes you own or have tried from the brand in the past.

Let’s take a look!

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder Review

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder 8

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.

Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.

One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.

Thanks Crystal

Let’s take a peek at this!

I’m quite eager to get to the review.

Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream Review & Swatches

Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream Review

I’m guilty, I admit it, I wrote off Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams ($21) when they launched.

I’m just not a fan of cream lipstick. I find most creams drying and the longer you wear them the more moisture they suck from your lips. When there isn’t anymore moisture to suck out they go for your soul! It’s deadly.

No..but seriously. I also get lip crumbs from cream lipstick. Lip crumbs are those little flaky gross pieces of lipstick that float around your dry mouth. It’s not pretty people.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick changed how I feel about creams. They’ve managed to create a moisturizing cream formula that looks and feels incredible on lips.

How’d they do dat?

Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover Review

Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover Review

Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is my HG (holy grail) eye makeup remover of the moment. Actually the search for my HG eye makeup remover might be over!

I’m cheap. Not really but when it comes to makeup remover I am terribly cheap. I think nothing at all of splurging $50 on a blush but tell me to spend $27 on 4.2 oz of makeup remover and I start to sob like a baby, “Mommy it hurts so BAD!”

I think I have this mentality that I can buy a new eyeshadow palette or a lipstick and maybe a gloss with that near $30 price tag. Ouch!!!!!!!!!!

I typically buy Sephora’s Eye Makeup Remover which I like for $9.50 but look out Sephora, Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is on the case.
