Milani Spotlight Face & Eye Strobe Palette Review and Swatches




01 SUN LIGHTPale Pink/Neutral Bronze/White Pearl

02 CANDLE LIGHTCoral Pink/Bronze Glow/White Gold Pearl


03 GOLDEN LIGHTWarm Bronze/Deep Bronze/Light Bronze



 "Spotlight Face & Eye Strobe Palette is the ultimate multitasking glow powder with universal flattering shades to illuminate face and eyes like never before. Light-reflecting powders build and blend effortlessly for an instant glow.
 Use as a blush, highlighter, eye accent and to spotlight all of your prettiest features with beautiful luminosity."


I bought these Milani Spotlight face and Eye palettes back in December.

Although these are really pretty, they are not at the top of my list of my favorite Milani products.

These are easy to blend and buildable which I like, but these do leave sparkle on you face.  

I personally am not a fan of sparkle on my face.

 But I know some of you really like it.

These retail for around $12 to $15 dollars depending where you buy them from.

I personally would recommend  #2 if you are thinking about picking one up.

They do have a shade for all skin tone which is nice.

So have you tried these yet?? 

XOXO,

Vicki

Clinique X Crayon collaboration Chubby Lip Crayon Box Review and Swatches






Brick Red, Wild Cherry, Mango Tango , Melon


Marvelous, Pink Sherbet, Fuzzy Wuzzy, Red Violet 



Clinique X Crayola have collaborated with the cutest makeup idea that I have probably ever seen.

I mean come on we all know and loved Crayola crayons as a kid.
  
Not to mention Clinique has been around for many years too!

I was so excited when I saw these online and knew I had to have them!

The nostalgia of them and the aesthetic is so pleasing to the eye. I mean just looking at these makes me happy.

The chubby sticks are pretty sheer on the lips which can be a bit of a downfall to some.

Brick Red and Red Violet are the most pigmented of the eight colors in this set.

The chubby sticks are moisturizing on the lips which is good.

This set come with eight mini chubby sticks and Retails for $49.00.

Overall I very happy I have this set in my collection.

XOXO,

Vicki

Beautylish XL Lucky Bag 2017


I have purchased a Lucky Bag every year since Beautylish started it back in 2014.

It has become a tradition for me now to buy this. It goes on sale December 26 and  sells out every year.

This is a mystery bag , you have no clue what you are getting, but you are guaranteed to get double the value of what you purchase it for.

I haven't been 100% happy with some of my bags in the past but that is the gamble you take.

You win some you lose some.

So if you don't like to take a gamble, this is definitely not for you.

The price is $75.00 ( you are guaranteed $150 + value) , but this year Beautylish up'd the ante and had a XL Lucky bag for $150 ( guaranteed a value of $300 +). 

I took the gamble and YES it was huge gamble getting the XL bag.

I will continue to take the gamble because I love a good mystery.

Now let's see what was in my box.



It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara $24.00

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Marie Antoinette $32.00

Wayne Goss #2 Brush $35.00

 Bioderma mini $6.90

Oribe  Gold Lust dry shampoo mini  $22.00

Becca skin perfector in Opal $38.00


Jeffrey Star Androgyny liquid lipstick $18.00

Saved the best for last
Natasha Denona Purple-Blue palette $239.00 

I paid $150 plus $10 shipping and tax for this XL Lucky Bag.

My box value was $414.90.

Seriously this was the BEST Lucky bag to date in my experience.

I am so happy to have the Natasha Denona Purple-Blue palette in my collection and out of the two palettes this color palette would have 100% been my choice.

Jeffree Star Androgyny is my absolute favorite lip color in his line and I am glad to have a back up.

Wayne Goss brushes are fabulous , you can never have too many.

I love everything in this box.

I would love to know what you received in your Lucky Bag if you ordered one.

XOXO,

Vicki
