No comments:




This is such a steal! 

 Just a head's up if you have not been to Walgreen's lately , here is some pretty cool new holiday items they have in store.

They had so much more at mine but the S.A. didn't have room for them so the sales floor so I will show you more on a later post.

These are so affordable and great for friends, family and coworkers.

This is not a sponsored post , I am just showing you a few new goodies that I think you would like.

Stay tuned for more deals.

XOXO,

Vicki

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquers Review and Swatches

No comments:

Pink Ruby, Strawberry Topaz, Carneilian, Garnet





Revlon has just released these Ultra HD Lip Lacquers.

I really don't get the HD behind the name and I haven't seen much information about these either on the web.

Let me just say the pigmentation is phenomenal on these babies.

These do come with a brush applicator which I like but you need to be very careful applying these because the applicator gives a lot of product at once.

It can get messy if you are not careful.

I am super impressed with the formula of these.

I believe these come in two formulations; shimmer and cream.

I think the shimmer is nice and even though you can feel the grittiness, it is very minimal and not uncomfortable.

The cream formulation is perfection!! It is super smooth and feels great on the lips.

I found mine at Target for $7.99 each.

These are permanent to the line so no need to rush out and buy them.

The packaging has a cute gem stone looking design on the cap, which is super cute.

Let me know what you think of these?

XOXO,

Vicki

Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette Review, Swatches and Comparisons

No comments:



Breathless, Embraced. Whimsy, Bashful, Irreplaceable 


Holiday palette's and sets are popping up everywhere and here is one I look forward to every year!

Tarte Cosmetics Holiday collections are always fun and have really cute packaging.

Tarte Pin Up Girl blush palette is a MUST HAVE this year.

The blushes are nicely pigmented and are almost full size which, makes this product a fabulous deal. 

I love that it comes with two really cute hair pins that are functional.  My only gripe is that the clasp is a bit flimsy and loose.

Retail is $42.00 for this palette but the value is $110.

I think you should definitely take a look if you are interested.

It will sell out as all the good sets do early in the season.

Now onto the comparisons!

Top Row- 2014 Palette & Bottom Row-2013 Palette



I have put last year's Tarte holiday Cheek palette to show you the comparisons to this year's. I am so happy to see there are no repeat shades this year which is always a plus.

I did write the names on last year's palette because I really don't like the flimsy plastic covers with the names on it. I will probably do it to the new one as well.

What do you think? Will you be picking this up?

XOXO,

Vicki
