KKW Creme Liquid Lipstick By Kylie Cosmetics Review , Swatches and Giveaway




Kimberly, Kim, Kiki, Kimmie



I purchased the new KKW X Kylie Cosmetics collaboration when it first was released last month.

Shipping seemed to take forever ( 2 1/2 weeks to be exact) which is ridiculous since they're located in California and so am I.

I have purchased from Kylie Cosmetics prior to this and shipping never took that long , so ya I pretty annoyed by it.

When I first saw the KKW release info I was so excited......Well because,  ummm the cute pink packaging of course.   Hello!!!  

I also wanted to try out the new liquid creme formulation too.

All four colors of this collection are nude. 

Which is not dark skinned complexion friendly I might add. 

Hell I am medium to medium tan complexion and I even need to use a liner to make these colors work.

Should of known better since all the models used for this collection were all light skinned models.

The formula is just ok and the wand makes for a streaky application. 

They really should have made the wand applicator longer in my opinion.

My two favorite colors are Kiki and Kimmie. 

I know many of you missed on this collection and would love to get your hands on it.

So I ordered two, one for me and one for you!!

XOXO,

Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze and Invisible Glow Review and Swatches

Fair-Light Invisble Glow

Medium Invisible Bronze

I have always been a fan of Bare Minerals, not so much their loose mineral products anymore but I love their pressed makeup line and liquid foundations.

Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze and Invisible Glow are newer products to the line which are baked. 
Which means they start off as a cream product and are baked on a terracotta tile for 24 hours. The outcome is pure pigment without any binder or fillers.

The bronzer and highlighter both come in four shades; Fair to Light, Medium, Tan and Dark to Deep.

I bought the medium in both bronzer and highlight as a set from QVC which is way cheaper than buying at Bare Mineral retailers. 

Both Retail for $28.00 each.

I like the medium bronzer even though it does have shimmer particles in the formula which I am usually not a fan of but of it works for me in this particular powder. 

Now Invisible Glow which is the highlighter ( medium) just blends into my skin and shows shimmer no highlight at all. well maybe thats why it's name is invisible....haha

 I ended up purchasing the Fair to Light Invisible glow and to my surprise that works well for me. 

Even thought these are marketed in four color ways, you can definitely mix and match the bronzer 
and highlighters.

Buying them in the set from the Q definitely didn't work for me since I needed to mix and match my shades.

This is not my go to bronzer but this is a nice change for the summer for added glow.

Have you seen tried either of these products yet?

I would love to know your thoughts.

XOXO,

Vicki

Marc Jacobs Enamored with Shine 4 piece travel sized collection





French Tickler, Hey You, Pink Flamingo, Allow Me


Last month when Sephora was having their VIB sale I bought this Marc Jacobs 4 piece travel lip gloss collection.

Marc Jacobs has one of the best lipgloss formulas on the market, so I knew for only $32.00 this was a  must have set and saving 15% on top of that, hell yeah!

I hadn't seen any reviews about this prior to purchasing it, which surprised me.
Because like I said these glosses are so good.

I like the color assortment this set has and all four colors are permanent to his line so if you like a certain color you can go buy the full size.

The texture on these is smooth and silky feeling on the lips, not tacky or goopey at all.
Even the micro glitter shades are not gritty.

Like I said before I am a fan and really love all the colors.

This set is limited edition so if you want it you better get it fast because this will sell out.

Have you tried Marc Jacobs lip glosses before?? 

Let me know your thoughts?

XOXO,

Vicki
