Dare To Wear Lipglass swatches

From LT to RT Bold & Brash, Dare to Dare, Ban This!, Gimme That!, So Bad, Wind Me Up

These new M.A.C. Lipglasses are a consistency between a Lipstick and a Dazzle Glass, The staying power is pretty good on these glosses.
They do have holographic pearl in them for that multi-dimensional look , but only two of the six colors seem a bit gritty to me and the other four seem pretty smooth.
If you are a neutral girl, these are probably not for you, the colors are bold and bright.
I love these personally.
I do not like that they do have some glitter fall out around the mouth area.
The pigmentation on these is not for the faint of heart, these are bright and beautiful.
These are Limited Edition so If you want them, I suggest to get them early, the price is $18.00 a pop.

Tooo Faced Naked Eye VS. Urban Decay Naked palette

In the Buff, Birthday Suit, Pink Cheeks
Pillow Talk, Satin Sheets, Lap Dance
Like a Virgin, Unmentionables, Stiletto

Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked
Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal

I really like both palettes, so let me tell you why.

Too Faced is really more of a Naked Eye palette as its called, and the color payoff is really well and the shadows do not crumble and have lots of excess fall out. Great neutral palette and you can also do evening looks with it as well.
It also comes with 3 little insert cards to show you how to do 3 different looks, which is great if you are a beginner.

Urban Decay Naked palette, is not that at all, it has mostly shimmery colors, dont get me wrong I love me some shimmer. I do love the color selection, but I dont think the name fits with this palette at all.
The colors are soft and do crumble easy with lots of fall, I would say this is more of a smokey eye palette with darker neutrals.

As I said I do really like them both, but If you truly want that Naked Eye look, Too Faced Naked Eye palette is the way to go.

Too Faced Naked Eye palette retails for $35.00

Urban Decay Naked palette retails for $ 44.00

Bargain Alert Beauty

Here is a sweet deal you can all get you're hands on....... e.l.f. Eye Brights Edition
This is available at Target.... The colors are pretty decent, but the fall out on a few colors is a bit much, but for $5.00 bucks, this a bargain.

Top Row
Middle Row
Bottom Row ( my favorite)

TR...Black orchid, Bruised plum, True coral, Ginger fawn ( DIRECT SUNLIGHT not so accurate)
MR...Moroccain rouge, warm sable, Vanilla suede
BM...Smoke Red, Pink dusk, Pure pink
BR...Blush nude, Cherry Lush

These lipsticks are very smooth in texture, they all have a pretty shimmer to them, goes on like butta...
Price tag is a bit hefty, a whopping $45.00 each, but these are truly a luxurious item to have.
These are Limited Editon, so If you want one or two, you better get them now before they sell out.
The colors are all very pigmented and they do have lasting power, especially the darker ones.
I purchased for myself , Pink Dusk and Smoke Red.....It was a hard choice between Smoke Red and Cherry Lush for me , but Smoke Red is a more Brownish Red and Cherry Lush is a Pinkish Red.
So Smoke Red is more in my comfort zone, dont get me wrong I would of loved to buy them both but again the price tag is pretty steep.
I purchased mine from Neiman Marcus, but Bergdorfs sells them as well.
