Jouer Mermaid Iridescent Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches




Coconut, Pink Pearl, Splash, Dreamer





Jouer Cosmetics has recently launched their Mermaid collection for summer 2016.

You get four fun iridescent colors in this set. 
They can be worn alone or over another eyeshadow to give more dimension to your eye look.

I have even used them wet and as a liner.

I am really impressed with these shadows.

The packaging is so cute too and I love how travel friendly these are.

Retail is $38.00 ( $88.00 Value) which is a great deal.

 You can get a 20% percent coupon if you sign up on the Jouer website or just follow Christina on Snapchat ( czjouer) she always gives out coupon codes and has specials for her snapchat family.

She is always fun to watch and shows lots of behind the scenes.

I highly recommend you check out Jouer Cosmetics.

XOXO,

Vicki

Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette Review and Swatches




Sleek Makeup is a UK drugstore brand, so many of you probably have never tried it or even heard of it.

If you love highlighters this is definitely one item you should try!




Look how gorgeous this palette is? 

I mean really?  See you already think you need it, right?


Ecliptic, Hemisphere, Subsolar, Equinox

The palette has four highlighters 1 cream and 3 powder.
Ecliptic is the cream highlighter and Hemisphere, Subsolar and Equinox are all powders.

 I really don't like cream and powder formulas mixed in any palette but it seems to work in this one.

This is such a gorgeous highlight palette and super affordable for a drugstore makeup.

All colors are so pretty and the formulation and texture is nice.

Now for the down-side. 

Sleek has recently stopped shipping this particular palette to the U.S.  because of regulations, some ingredient in the formulation that doesn't comply with U.S. guidelines.

I did hear they are working on fixing the problem so they can start shipping them to their U.S. customers again.

I do see some of these palettes being sold on evil bay (eBay) , but order at your own risk.

XOXO,

Vicki

Nars Laguna Tiare Bronzer VS. Nars Laguna , Review and Swatches


Nars has a new limited edition bronzer called Laguna Tiare Bronzer.

It comes in a huge 10g palette and includes a mini ita brush. The packing looks like wood on top and just smooth black on the bottom.

I am not the biggest Nars Laguna fan, I think Nars Casino is more my taste.

I had to see if there really is difference between the new one and the original laguna bronzer.




heavy swatch / blended

Can you notice a difference in color down below??
Left two swatches-Laguna Tiare / Right two -Laguna ( original)

The most noticeable difference is the laguna tiare bronzer is infused with Minoi fragrance.

Also the consistency seems to apply and feel silkier to me. 

I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me but I think this is a smidge darker than the original.

The Monoi scent is very noticable so if you are not into fragrance you will probably not like this.

I think the scent is nice and great for summer.

It is great for face and body.

This retails for $59.00.

Thank goodness for Sephora gift cards :)

So what do you think?

XOXO,

Vicki
