Anastasia Beverly Hill Shadow Couture Palette Review and Swatches





Soft Peach,  Morocco,  Heirloom, Bellini,  Pink Champagne,  Chic

Spoiled,  Fudge,  Azure, Intense Gaze,  Metallic , Noir


I recently picked up the newest eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills called "Shadow Couture".

The colors are very pretty and I like the color selection of all 12 shadows.

Unfortunately the shadows are hit and miss.

I love all the shimmer shadows but some of the matte colors are very dry and need a little more work to blend them out.  But on the other hand some of the shimmers blend out to almost nothing. 

Retail is $30.00 and you can find this at Ulta, Sephora.

I used my Ulta 20% off coupon so I feel better about buying it. 

This is definitely not a must have palette.

Let me know your thoughts?

XOXO,

Vicki

butter London Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon Review and Swatches




Ruby Murray, Teddy Boy, Tea with the Queen, Trout Pout

Disco Biscuit, Toff, Primrose Hill Picnic

Built in sharpener.


Butter London's Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon is in all in one lip color, that gives you intense color and glossy shine.

These apply smoothly on your lips and makes your lips look juicy!

I love the built in sharpener on the cap.  Great for on the go.

These feel very moisturizing on the lips.

I love that these are highly pigmented too.

These are not lip stains in anyway so you will have to apply after a few hours.

Retail is $20.00 and you find these at Ulta , Macy's and Butter London's website.

My favorite colors are Ruby Murray, Primrose Hill Picnic and Toff.

What are your favorite colors??

Stay tuned I will be giving these away………..

XOXO,

Vicki

Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes Review and Swatches



                                                   Crush, Adore, Beloved, Lust
Crush, Adore, Beloved, Lust

Embrace, Desire, Romance, Flirt



Milani has jumped on the liquid lipstick band wagon and have released eight new lip colors called "Amore Matte Lip Creme " .


Here are all 8 shades for you to feast your eyes on :)

Here is what I like about them; they're reasonably priced,  have nice packaging, long staying power, nice colors, although they are drying they do not feel drying on my lips (you know what I mean), they feel like nothing on your lips once they dry completely, and lastly there is only one patchy color out of the 8.


Here is what I don't like about them; messy (the wand is very messy because of the thin formula and there is a ton of product on the wand which makes it harder to apply, Flirt was the only patchy color.

So the pro's more than out weigh the cons for these bad boys.


Retail is $6.99; I found mine at Walgreens.

The only down fall is that the display only has 2 of each color, so you might have to look at a few different stores for them.

I lucked out and found them at the first Walgreens I checked.

Let me know what colors you like and if you will be picking some up?


XOXO,

Vicki

Bite Beauty Opal Creme Lip Gloss and Creme Lipstick Review and Swatches










Bite Beauty just released the color "Opal" in a creme lipgloss and creme lipstick.

The color is AMAZING!!!!

You can wear them alone or layered over other colors.

Opal is a hard color to pull off in a lip color but Bite Beauty hit the nail on the head with these babies.

They're perfection. Can you tell I don't like them. (I kid I kid)

Don't be afraid to wear them alone , they give the most gorgeous iridescent color on your lips.

I highly recommend you check these out. 

Retail is $22 and $24 depending on which one you get.

These are limited edition so get a move on to Sephora if you want these.

XOXO,

Vicki

Lorac Pro Metal Palette Review and Swatches







Quartz, Rose Gold, Graphite, Onyx

Gilded, Amber, Clover, Cobalt

Lorac has released two new mini palettes "Lorac Pro Metal" and " Lorac Pro Matte",

I opted for the metal one.

I believe only the Metal one is exclusive to Ulta , both retail for $28.00.

They basically took eight colors from the Lorac Pro 2 palette and put them in this smaller version.

Lorac has really nice shadows in general and these are all winning colors.

All buttery smooth and very blendable.

I totally recommend you take a peek the next time you are in Ulta.

XOXO,

Vicki

Lush Shark Fin Soap

Did you all get ready for Shark week?

Ya I know I am a little late to post this, but you can still buy these from Lush while supplies last.






A refreshing soap with ingredients from the sea
"Did you know that every year up to 100 million sharks are needlessly killed for shark fin soup? Take a bite out of shark finning with our limited edition sea-inspired soap! Created for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, its softening seaweed, scrubby fine sea salt and zesty lime oil make it a refreshing way to cool down this summer. 100% of the price of this soap will be donated to grassroots organizations dedicated to the protection and conservation of sharks. Now you can swim with the sharks and help protect them, too!"
The price is only $5.95 a bar and C'mom these are freaking just too adorable.
Don't worry the fin is a little piece of paper. 
I believe these are out of stock online already but you can still find them in store.
XOXO,
Vicki

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop Review and Swatches





Heavily swatched and blended

Gangs all here ( most of them anyway :)

Rose Gold, Moonstone, Champagne Pop, Opal, Copper

 Becca has always been one of my favorite brands when it comes to blush and highlighters.

So naturally when I heard Becca was coming out with a new Skin perfector in collab with Jaclyn Hill I was really curious to see what color it would be.

Look at my collection , I knew I was pretty much going to get it since I have all the other colors.

The formula is exactly the same as all the other colors in line so it is good!!

Champagne Pop is a beautiful color and I know many of you will love it.

I still think Kevyn Aucoin Celestial powder in Candlelight is still one of the best highlighter colors on the market  and the formula is outstanding.

Becca skin perfecters are my number 2 favorites.

Retail is $38.00 and this color is Limited Edition, I do wish it had fancy packaging like the previous L.E. ones have in the past.

So will you be picking up Champagne Pop?

XOXO,

Vicki
