the Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

the Balm Nude Dude

the Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette Volume 2 is a new permanent eyeshadow palette that the Balm has introduced for Fall/Holiday 2014 that contains 12 shades of shadow, a brush, and a full size the Balm Body Builder Mascara. Yes, this is kinda a Nude’Tude Eyeshadow Palette Volume 2 of sorts!

I think everyone gets terribly excited when the Balm launches a new eyeshadow palette! For myself, I know I was very excited about the Balm Nude Due Eyeshadow Palette because it housed a ton of pretty natural shades but also because I can grab it up easily at Kohl’s! Don’t worry it’ll be available on the Balm’s website shortly and but as of now it’s available at and will pop up in store soon as well!

I sure do miss the Balm at Sephora but I’m every so delighted they are available at Kohl’s now! Sometimes it’s nice being able to grab your fav brand in store versus waiting for an online shipment ya know?


Lush Fairy Ring Soap Review

Lush Fairy Ring Soap

Lush Fairy Ring Soap is a new, limited edition soap launching this week with the Lush Halloween 2014 Collection. I get terribly excited when Lush launches a new soap as I really enjoy their soap collection. Plenty of lather, skin softening ingredients, what more could a girl want?

Oh, I know, a soap shaped like a mushroom!


Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches

Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer

Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer is a hybrid formula lipstain, gloss, and balm all in one that launched in Korea in four different shades. I was delighted with the Welcos Killing Me Zombie Crazy Gloss Lip Tint I recently picked up and I’m happy to report back that the Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer is along the same lines in terms of pigment, formula, texture, and wear!

Let’s have a look see!


Baviphat Urban Dollkiss I Love CC Cream Review & Swatches

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss I Love CC Cream

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss I Love CC Cream is a color changing, adapting CC Cream inspired by Snow White (see the cute apple packaging and the box that reads “Present an apple…To all the Girls Dreaming to be the Snow White” yes it really says “the Snow White” haha!).

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss I Love CC Cream is available in three different finishes but I choose the color changing formula since I have good experiences with these CC creams based on my success with Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream and more recently the Hope Girl CC Cream formula.

As you know from my prior post on the Baviphat Urban Dollkiss I Love Tint Gloss I picked up this CC Cream purely for the cute apple packaging! It’s just too sweet. The CC Cream is housed in a bright orange apple with a golden pump stem very cute but…


Clarins Rouge Eclat Fall 2014 Lipstick Review & Swatches

Clarins Rouge Eclat Fall 2014 Lipstick

Candy Rose, Pink Magnolia, Strawberry Sorbet, Chestnut Brown, and Red Fuchsia are five new Clarins Rouge Eclat Sating Finish Ange-Defying Lipstick shades for Fall 2014 launching with the Clarins Ladylike Collection!

As a fan of Clarins Rouge Eclat formula I was quite happy they decided to launch new shades. The original Rouge Eclat Lipsticks launched in fifteen shades for Spring 2013 and quickly became a little obsession of mine. Most of my shades are down to the nub right now so I get to replenish my stash with these new gorgeous Fall 2014 shades!
