Lorac Mocktail Mixer Pro Matte Lip Color Set Review and Swatches





Italian Rose, Autumn, Burgundy Wine




I picked up the  Lorac Cocktail Mixer trio when they first arrived at Ulta.

I mean for $28.00 ( $54.00 Value) , you get three full size lip colors.

I couldn't pass that deal up, plus I have never tried these particular Lorac products so it was about time.

I love the white and rose gold packaging on their holiday 2016 collection.

These have a twist up mechanism and are thin so it makes precise application easy without a lipliner.

These are a matte formula and I do find them comfortable on my lips.

Application is smooth and the pigmentation is good.

However I don't think these are very long lasting but they don't claim to be either.

These will last on your lips for a few hours but you will need to reapply after eating or drinking.

All in all I really like this set and love the colors.

I feel this is great time to try these if you never have before and these colors are also new limited edition colors. So if you love the formula you might want to pick this set up.

XOXO,

Vicki

Smashbox Light It Up L.A. Lights Blush Mega Palette Review and Swatches


Look how gorgeous this palette is! I love the huge mirror in the palette too!




Look how adorable the front of the box is? It looks just like the actual blushes inside, just without the names.


Rich Coral, True Coral, Highlight Coral

Rich Berry , True Pink Berry, Highlight Berry

Rich Bronze, True Flush, Highlight Gold



Last week while shopping at Ulta I came across this beauty!

The NEW Smashbox Light it up L.A. Lights  Blush Mega palette.

This palette is huge and you get a full size mirror in the palette which is a total bonus!

I mean seriously we have all bought a blush palette at some point with a tiny mirror inside that are basically is useless.

I am so happy with this purchase.  

 All the blush colors have excellent pigmentation and blend very well.

The highlighters are not BAM in your face highlighters and I really like the subtleness of them.

I mean for only $39.00 this is such a great deal!

It won't be the most travel friendly blush palette in your stash but you can easily fit in a carry on and the black sleek compact makes it easy to store.

It comes in a bulky container that is reusable to store other items in, which I totally love and love the neon color.

Why I have not seen anyone talk about this yet??

Hands down one of my new favorite blush palettes so far this season.

I have seen and purchased other blush sets from different brands, but the quality is not consistent in those other palettes.

The quality is very good and consistent with this set!!!

I highly recommend this and can't say enough good things about it, if you couldn't tell already.

I believe this is an Ulta Exclusive , at least when I post this it is.


XOXO,

Vicki

Tarte Limitless Lippies Deluxe Tartest Lip Paint Set Review and Swatches





Soul, Perf, Candy, Latte


Mani, Spicy, Honey, Juicy



The holidays are coming up fast and that means so are all the new holiday sets from all the makeup companies!!

The first one on my list was the Tarte Limitless creamy matte lip paint set.

I purchased this knowing I would split the set with my daughter and for only $42 dollars for eight deluxe size lip creams it is a great value.

I love the color selection this set offers : nudes, pinks, berries, browns and red.

 The formulation applies nice and smooth.

 Kind of velvety feeling on my lips.

Keep in mind these do not dry down completely , so they will transfer.

Overall this is a great set to keep all for yourself or split them up as two gifts for friends and family who love makeup!

No doubt this set will out fast!

What are some of the holiday sets on your list?

XOXO,

Vicki

Dose of Colors EyesCream Palette Review and Swatches








Berries'N Cream, Mint Chip, Sherbert, Cone, Hot Fudge

Banana Split, Blueberry Swirl, Bubblegum, Lavender Honey, Double Scoop



I scream you scream we all scream for EyeScream!

That was a little cheesy but C'mon with that name I had to :)

Dose of Colors has recently launched their first eyeshadow palette , called "EyesCream".

Cuteness overload on this palette, from the names to the packaging , I mean it's pink with white polka dots. I love it!


Now on to see if I loved the shadows........

About half the colors do not swatch very well using your fingers.  So do not judge it by that!
But hey they are not meant to be used with fingers, right?

They do however blend very well with brushes and both matte and shimmer shadows are very pigmented.

I think this is a great palette to add to you collection.

Lavender Honey is such a unique color and the pigmentation is great.

I got mine at Naimies so I could use my discount, you can also buy it from Dose of Colors website as well.

Will you be picking this up?

XOXO,

Vicki
