Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals & Crown of My Canopy Swatches / Lost in the Wildflowers Collection


Unless you have been been living under a rock lately, you know how hard the New Wet n Wild Lost in the Wild Flowers collection is to find and is a very HOT commodity right now.


Here are the two most coveted items from the collection.

The highlighting powders in Precious Petals and Crown of my Canopy.

The collection has very cute names and the embossing on these powders are super adorable.

Retail is $3.99 each and these are sadly limited edition.



Precious Petals

Crown of my Canopy




I must admit I too had a very hard time tracking these down.

Several of you told me you did as well.

I lucked out and had one of the managers at a local Walgreens call and let me know the display was in.

The display only has 3 of each item and of coarse the powders are always the first to go.

These are definitely a great drugstore item to have.

I bought a few other items from the collection as well, so stay tuned!!

Giveaway on these coming soon :)  so make sure you follow me on Instagram and Twitter for a heads up! 

This is for my fabulous readers only ;)

XOXO,

Vicki

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi Palette Review and Swatches


Estee Lauder comes out with a new Bronze Goddess collection every summer , with different variations of color and fragrance.

For 2016 they added the Summer Glow Multi Palette.

It has a highlighter, blush and bronzer.

The palette itself is very sturdy and sleek looking.

It has a good size mirror too.



Highlighter, Blush, Bronzer



I thought it was going to be the Gelee formula we all love from Estee Lauder, but unfortunately it is not.

The highlighter is very pigmented and smooth.

The blush and bronzer definitely have a different formulation and texture.

These are not super pigmented which can be a good or bad thing depending how you look at it.

The colors can easily be built up.

They're a bit on the drier side and the bronzer leans a little too orange for my liking.

All three colors can double as an eyeshadow as well.

Retail is $50.00

If you're on the fence about this palette you should take a look in store if you can.

I have heard some batches are better than others.

Hope this was helpful to you.

XOXO,

Vicki

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Classic Courage






Rise and Shine, Lucky Penny, Trailblazer

Smile on, Rosy Outlook, Rise and Shine

Courage Blush 

Tarte has so many new products that have recently launched.

I know it's hard keeping up with all the goodies.

I picked up this Ulta exclusive palette last month and have been testing it out for awhile now.

I love the message on the front of the palette " She Dreamed, She Believed & She Succeeded".

Talk about empowering,  I love it and think it's very cute.

 Though the colors are more on the natural side the palette can be used for daytime and nighttime looks.

Courage is the blush color in this palette and it is gorgeous.

I thought it was a little light for me looking at the palette but once applied it appears a little darker so I am happy about that.

This is a great all in one palette and so easy to keep in your purse or desk at work.

Retail is $28.00 for the palette, which is a great price.

Tarte has another palette with more darker colors for a smokey eye look.

It is pretty as well but I will get more use out this palette.

XOXO,

Vicki

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Illuminating, Medium and Bronze Review and Swatches / $10 Bucks on sale right now!


Macy's is clearing out the Urban Decay Beauty Balms for ONLY $10.00 each,  Reg price is $34.00.

I was told UD is phasing these specific products out in stores and that is why the low price.

The good news for you besides the low price is these are really great primers plus you can wear them on their own.

Stock up if you love these products!



The Illuminating one is the lightest shade but also has small glitter flecks as opposed to shimmer. (not my favorite)

Medium is matte and I love how it just evens out my skin. (I highly recommend this one)

Bronze is a great multi task product; you can use if mixed in with your foundation to get the tan look, wear it on it's own and mix it in to your favorite body lotion for the bronze glow.
Also if you have a darker complexion this will work great for you just a primer.


Blended 

Did I mention these have SPF 20.

What are you waiting for??

I stocked up and got one of each color and still paid less than the full price of just one.

I see these are still full price in several retailers other than Macy's. 

I highly recommend you jump on this great deal. 

 These are on sale until supplies run out.

XOXO,

Vicki
