DiorSkin Nude Glow Healthy Glow Summer powder Review & swatches

LT-001 Aurora / RT- 002 Sunset


These are Brand New from Dior summer 2011 collection, both are Limited Edition and I predict will sell out fast, so run don't walk, if you want one.

These are absolutely gorgeous, I love them both,  I am lucky enough that both show up on pretty well on my skin , NW35 , I would say both olive to darker skin tones  can wear both colors, of coarse the lighter one  Aurora 001 not so much as bronzer  , but as an actual blush.  I would say If you are light or fair skin tone, you will have to stick with the lighter one which is  Aurora 001  , Sunset 002  might look a bit orange on you.

Dior has named these powders very well, a Healthy glow is indeed what you get with these powders.
I am very pleased with both of these, I didn't check out the skin enhancers, because I love my Becca Shimmering  Skin perfectors.

These cost $46.00 each, but If your budget will allow, I recommend getting both.

They are definitely worth taking a look at, If they are not sold out, because these will without a doubt sell out quickly.

NYX Nude on Nude VS. Urban Decay Naked

NYX Nude on Nude palette
Nyx Nude on Nude is top...Urban Decay Naked is bottom

Do you wanna be Naked??


Would you rather be Nude?


Would you rather be Nude or Naked? That is the question?

I own both of these palettes, and while I do love the Urban Decay Naked palette, because of all the versatile looks you can do with this palette,  NYX is a good dupe!

The NYX one has quite a few more colors and glosses too, and I was lucky enough to get this one at Ulta for $14.99, when Ulta had NYX for 40% off, full retail is $25.00.

The Urban Decay Naked will run you $48.00 bucks plus tax, so If you find the NYX one, pick it up, I don't think you will be disappointed.  Most of the colors from NYX have pretty good pigmentation, and the glosses are a added bonus.

Hope you enjoyed the post.


XOXO,

Vicki

Chanel L.A. Sunrise VS. Chanel Mimosa swatches




Both colors are on my hand , ( actually 3, one is another brand)



CAN YOU TELL WHICH IS WHICH??? TAKE A GUESS???
 
WHICH IS WHICH?







I wanna see if any of you can tell the difference between Chanel L.A. Sunrise and Chanel Mimosa?

Look closely, can you tell the difference??  Yes my nails are not perfect, just concentrate on the color.

Hint 2 nails are one , 2 nails are the other and only 1 is Butter London......

Kryolan Shimmering Vision palette & swatches

All the colors
Top two rows up close
Bottom row close up
Back of palette


This Kryolan  palette has some really great colors, only two out of all the colors were not very pigmented.
Even when applied over a eye primer, these do crease.

A few colors have the consistency like a lip gloss, which seems odd.

What bothers me most about this palette is the smell of the actual product. I know this is theatrical makeup but the smell is too overwhelming.

I have a few other Kryolan palettes and none of them have this chemical smell.

I even left mine open for a few days to see if the smell would go away, but it did not  :(
It didn't even make the smell lighten , which was a bummer, because like I said before, the smell is very strong.

Although the colors are really pretty, I would not recommend this palette.

Let me know your thoughts?


XOXO,

  Vicki

Milani Baked Goodies for me

These are the baked goods I love to get :)
LT to RT: Golden bronzer, Corallina blush, Lip Flash 01, Vivacious fuchsia 112



I must say, I am really impressed with the Milani Baked bronzer and blush, I like the Lip Flash, its just a little to dark on my lips, but gives a gorgeous shimmer.

The HD Advanced lip color in Vivacious Fuchsia , is gorgeous, the down fall is It doesn't last long, it feels waxy and leaves my lips a little dry afterwards, even though it is suppost to be hydrating.

The bronzer I received it too dark for me at the moment ( will suit me better when I get my summer tan) , but I think it would great on my shoulders and legs to give a little extra color, I will be purchasing the lighter one for comparison.

I am loving the Baked Blush, I actually bought another color since doing this post, I also got a nail polish called Gem, I took a twitpic of it, but I did not include this in the pictures.

I am really happy with most of these products, and I think they are worth taking a look and trying something from the new Baked line.

Benefit Feelin Cheeky! Mini's tint set

These mini's are Sephora exclusives sold in a set.


Great for the girl on the go!


I think this is a great little set for on the go, especially with summer coming up, you don't want to carry a ton of makeup in your beach bag.

 This exclusive set from Sephora is $15.00, and these are deluxe mini samples. Yes I know you can wait and get them for free if you save your VIB insider points.  Me personally, I don't want to waste 100 points ( which is $100 ) to get a mini deluxe sample,  when I can just buy this little set myself, and still rack up my points.

You can find these at the checkout. They are located where they have the little set up when you're waiting in line to make a purchase; they have all the little goodies there to make you wanna buy more.

I think this set is worth a look.  Let me know your thoughts!



XOXO,

Vicki
