Ulta Matte Lip Cream Review and Swatches and GWP

No comments:


Striking, Lively, Vivid



Gift w purchase 

Ulta has recently launched new products for Spring 2015 and these matte lip creams are part of the new products.

I don't usually buy Ulta brand products because I have purchased in the past and ended up returning the items due to poor quality.

With the liquid lip craze going on I thought I would give these a shot.

Surprisingly I like the lip creams but I have a few gripes as well.

Pros; creamy, good color selection, reasonably priced (if on sale)

Cons; long drying time (these take along time to dry completely),  not every color has the same consistency

Retail is $9.00 

I missed the buy 2 get 2 free they had last week so I purchased mine at full price (but I did use a coupon)

Although they are having a pretty good Gift w Purchase right now on all Ulta brand products.

You spend $19.50 and you get a cute bag  (Fuchsia or Lavender) full of Ulta products.

If you decide to try them I recommend you wait for a sale , unless you want the cute bag and some extra Ulta brand products to try :)

So what do you think? Have you tried these yet?

XOXO,

Vicki

Maybelline The Brights Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

No comments:


Top Row

Bottom Row



Maybelline The Brights palette was has been on my radar for awhile now, but I never seemed to find it, until recently.

The colors look so pretty and well yes hence the name "Bright".

I am very sad to report the pigmentation is lacking.  

I know sometimes shadows don't swatch good on your hand or arm but once applied on your eyes with proper brushes they work.

Not this palette.  I personally think they swatch better using your finger than applying them with a actual shadow brush.

Retail is $9.99.

I am returning this on my next trip back to Target.

I say this is a pass and would definitely would not recommend.

XOXO,

Vicki

Lime Crime Velventine in Pansy Review and Swatches

No comments:

This is how the wand looked when I first opened it. 




 I have a love a hate relationship with Lime Crime products.

I think their quality control sucks to be quite frank.

I have a handful of their Velvetines and some of the colors are just so watery and the color is all over the wand and dry and crusty in the cap , I mean that is seriously disgusting!!

That is how they came brand new to me. I was like WTH??

I know that I am not the only one who has this happen to them with these products.

This color is pretty but you can't build it too much or it starts looking patchy as you can see in the bottom picture.

If you haven't checked out my previous Lime Crime Velventine Cashmere review click here.

What are you thoughts??

Have you had any issues with the quality? I would really love to know.

XOXO,

Vicki
