L'Oreal True Match Lumi Highlight Powder in Rose Review and Swatches

ROSE N202, ICE C302, GOLDEN W102



Swatched individual and last swatched all together



L'Oreal has three new powder highlighters.  

I was excited to get my hands on these.  I found mine at Target last week ( they had to pull them from the back) and they were $10.99 ea.
 Which is the lowest price I have seen them so far.

I had high hopes for these! Especially from L'Oreal I thought these would be great.

Not to mention they look stunning in the pan.

These really emphasized my pores and that is never a good thing.

Sadly these did not make the cut for me.

They have chunky glitter in them and lots of fall out, which travels all over your face after only a few hours of wear.

They do have a high shine effect but again it's too much for my taste.

I used them both as a highlighter on my cheeks as well as a inner eye highlight.

I personally am not a fan of glitter all over my face but I know those of you who love glitter will probably like this product.

That being said, this are a miss for me.

XOXO,

Vicki

Milani Rose Powder Blushes in American Beauty Rose, Awakening Rose andBlossom Time Rose Review and Swatches




American Beauty Rose

Awakening Rose

BlossomTime Rose
   
                                           American Beauty Rose, Awakening Rose, Blossom Time Rose
  

Milani has three New Limited Edition Rose blushes.

I was on the fence to try them out to be honest, since I wasn't impressed with the last release, see here.

These colors are more muted in color than the ones in the permanent line.

I am pleased to let you know they are pretty darn good.

Retail is $8.29 each.

I found mine at CVS and they are on Bogo sale right now. 

The display only has two of each color so you they maybe hard to get.

I got the last ones in my store.

The display says " Limited Edition" but the packaging doesn't. 

Will you be on the hunt for these??

XOXO,

Vicki

Wet n Wild Coloricon Solar Powered Blush and Glow Trio







I picked up all three of the Wet n Wild  Coloricon blush and glow trios last month.

I must say I am a fan of these and think they are great little gems to add to your collection.

Solar Powered is the only one of the three that has two bronze colors and one blush.

This one is more suited for tan and darker skin tones I would say.

Check out my previous review here.

Retail is $3.99 

This one is so pretty and great for a summer glow.

XOXO,

Vicki

Milani Dolci Lipstick and Lipgloss Review and Swatches

The Dolci collection


These colors are beautiful


Here is the lip portion of the Milani Dolci Collection.

Check my review on the bronzer here if you haven't already.

The lipstick is a beautiful bronze metallic color and the lipgloss is a pinky gold color.

I mentioned in my previous post  that this a great collection to get.

I believe retail is $5 or 6 dollars each for these but I got them on sale.

The Lipstick smells so good too!

These are well worth tracking down if you can :)

XOXO,

Vicki

Butter London LadyBird Nail Lacquer Review and Swatches








Butter London LadyBird is a juicy red-orange color.

It is a fun bright happy color and is great for spring and summer.

Red is a little harder to pull off in summer, since we all want to go for bright and fun colors in the warmer months.

This is the perfect transition red color to do so with.

Retail is $15.00

What do you think of the color?

XOXO,

Vicki

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Plumberry lip oil-balm





Bare Minerals Pop of Passion lip-oil balm.

What it is:
A lip balm that treats lips to decadent hydration and plush color. 

What it does:
This oil-rich formula delivers vibrant color and slick shine with a comfortable color-stain. Treat your lips to this luxurious melt-in formula that’s enriched with passion fruit seed oil for intense hydration and vitamin E for nourishment.


I picked two colors up during Sephora's VIB sale back in April.

These are very soothing on the lips and give great color payoff.

Retail is $16.00.

I highly recommend these. 

Bare Minerals is having 20% Friends and Family sale this weekend so it is a good time to try these out if you haven't already or just pick up some of your favorite products.

XOXO,

Vicki

Milani Dolci Bronzer XL Review and Swatches








Milani has a new limited edition collection called "Dolci", it has one bronzer, nail polish, lipgloss, lipstick and eyeshadow.

Yes every product in this little collection is named "Dolci".

I came across this at CVS about two or three weeks ago and have been testing out the products ever since.

I got 1 of everything in the collection it was on sale, so that was a green light.

First up is this huge bronze / highlight duo.

I am liking this duo so far, the colors are really nice and work well with my skin tone.

Retail is $9.99 , but it is huge and definitely worth the price.

Surprisingly I like everything from this collection.

I give this two thumbs up and hurry to the drugstore to go get you some.

Click here to see more goodies and swatches from this collection!!

XOXO,
