Rosa, Bella, Amalfi, Venezia, Como

Here are all five swatches of Stila's new liquid lipsticks for summer 2015.

I'm going to make this short and sweet.

I love these!!

My favorite is Como, Bella and Amalfi.

Retail is $22.00.

These are great and do last all day! I highly recommend these.

The formula is really smooth too.

Like all good things, these beauties are Limited Edition so hurry and get your favorite color before they are gone. ( I will keep you updated if things change)

Which is your favorite?

Wet n Wild Coloricon Fair Trade Coffee Blush and Glow Trio







Wet 'n Wild has three new limited edition blush and glow trios that have been hitting drug stores all over for the past several weeks.

I found mine at Rite Aid last week.  They just had put the display out that morning.

Retail is $3.99

These are pretty good quality, they do kick up some product but that is expected.

The highlight is very shimmery (not glittery) so use it with a light hand.

The blush is a really pretty pink color , the bronze is a bit too light for me to actually use as a bronzer but I can use all three shades as eyeshadows.

Overall I like them. 

What do you think? Have you seen these at your local drug store yet?

XOXO,

Vicki

NYX The go-to Palette in Wanderlust Review and Swatches





Eyeshadows

Highlight, Blush, Bronzer


NYX Cosmetics has launched a few new palettes for spring / summer 2015.

I came across this a few days at Ulta. 

They had two different palettes on the store display but I opted for this one, the other palette is more jewel toned. 

The palette has 6 eyeshadows, 1 highlight, 1 blush and 1 bronzer.

There is no matte eyeshadow shade in the palette as you can see.

The brown looks a little matte but still has tiny sparkles, but not a sheen like the other shadows.

I know some go you won't care for that but it doesn't bother me.

The shadows have nice pigmentation, but do have some fall out, which is nothing major.


Retail is $16.99 which is a bit steep in my opinion for NYX products and a drug store product in general. 

I did use a coupon , which is one of the reasons I bought it.

I like the palette overall and will probably pick up the other palette at some point, but I recommend you get it on sale and use the Ulta coupon :)

What do you think?

XOXO,

Vicki

Maybelline Queen of New York 100th Anniversary Berry Chic and Magenta-Bulous Review and Swatches.


BERRY CHIC & MAGENTA-BULOUS



MAGENTA-BULOUS & BERRY CHIC
h
BERRY CHIC (820)

MAGENTA-BULOUS ( 810)


While browsing Walgreens last week, I came across a new display of the "Maybelline 100th Anniversary".

I hadn't even heard about these before I saw this.  The display had 5 lipsticks, some baby lips and a few eyeshadow duos.

I only bought two of the lipsticks, Magenta-Bulous; which has a cream finish and blue shift to it, (LOVE IT),  and Berry Chic, which is a berry color with a lustre finish to it and is a little frosty looking on the lips.

These were $8.79 each. I am sure the retail will vary depending what drug store you buy these from.


I highly recommend Magenta-Bulous for sure!


Don't get me wrong I think both colors a pretty but Berry Chic just was not my favorite.

I think if the formula was the same as Magenta-Bulous I would have liked it a lot more.

The packaging is very cute too.

Will you be picking any of these colors up??

XOXO,

Vicki
