NP Set Glam Set Palette Review & Swatches

Gotta admit that when NP Set releases a new little palette at Target I tend to flock to the display for a peek.

My fondest memory of NP awesomeness came in the form of the Pretty Presto! Palette, does anyone own it? I freaking loved that thing and hit pan on it before buying a new one.

It was my turning point for NP Set and meant that I never wrote anything off released by the brand ever after.

Let’s take a look at the NP Set Glam Set.


NXY Spring Fling Review & Swatches

Love pastels?

NYX Spring Fling is your girl. This darling little palette features soft, delicate pastels a plenty. I can wear pastels, shhh, don’t tell me I can’t k? I’ve almost completely convinced myself I can work these shades like no one else.

Yeah right, sure.


Bath & Body Works Wild Garden Fragrance Mist Review

I just recently tried the Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist for the first time…I have to say it’s rather impressive. Is it me or does it linger a good deal longer than the original body mists?

My body chemistry sucks up anything by Bath & Body Works and makes it undetectable within 30-60 minutes of application so I’m kinda digging that I got a longer wear from the new Fine Fragrance Mist.

The Wild Garden Collection is a selection of new floral blends that Bath & Body Works released for Spring 2012 that bring together sweet fruity notes combined with elements of soft, delicate floral notes.

Let’s take a look!


Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm Review & Swatches

Pixi joins the realms of tinted lip balm pencils with their new Tinted Brilliance.

I guess we’ll see more of these chubby pencils as the Summer progresses as they are really trending at the moment with Clinique releasing new shades of their pencil, Revlon having their new Stain Balms, and Tarte releasing a new Tangerine shade for Spring/Summer 2012.

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm actually had a Spring 2012 launch at Target and Target.com however I hadn’t tried them when they originally released so I was quite happy to give one a whirl recently.

Let’s have a look!
