Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

I recently discovered the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows and I have become slightly obsessed. My eyelids can get somewhat oily so regular eyeshadow never really lasts all day. For the most part these eyeshadows do not budge and they look … Continue reading

NYX Lip Gloss

I was at Ulta last weekend and I decided I would give these glosses a try after seeing them on a few blogs and YouTube videos. I am fairly new to the NYX brand so I had fun picking these out. I ended up deciding on the Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige and the Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait.

Mega Shine Lip Gloss: Beige

The name of this color is deceiving. In my opinion it is not beige at all but a nice soft pink. I really like the way this gloss applied and the way it felt on my lips. It is very moisturizing and smooth. I also really like that it smells like cherries! I will most likely purchase more colors in the future.

Butter Gloss: Strawberry Parfait

I recently discovered that any lip product that has strawberry in its name or color description is probably the perfect product for me. I love this shade of pink because it complements my skin tone and it is fun to wear everyday. This gloss far exceeded my expectations. It is amazingly buttery and smooth on my lips and the color payoff is great! I especially like the scent of this gloss, it is buttery and sweet but not overwhelming. The color of this gloss reminds me of my favorite gloss that I wrote a post about not too long ago. You can check out my Chihuahua Bite post here to read about how much I love the Too Faced Glamour Glosses. The feel and look of this gloss is different than the Too Faced one but I think the colors are similar. I will definitely purchase more of these awesome NYX Butter Glosses ASAP!

Overall, I liked the Butter Gloss more than the Mega Shine. Both are great products but I liked the feel of the Butter Gloss more.

What do you think of these glosses? Any color recommendations?

I’m a shopaholic…

For some reason I stayed up really late on Monday night watching YouTube videos of the $20 drugstore makeup tag. I must have watched more than 10 videos… The rules of the tag were that you had to create an entire look for $20. As I was watching all of the amazing drugstore makeup looks I really wanted to go shopping! I haven’t been wearing much drugstore makeup for the past year so I decided to go to Target (again) to pick up some old high school/college favorites that I haven’t used in a long time and some new products that I’ve been hearing/reading good things about. I didn’t stick to the $20 rule… Here’s what I bought:

P1010698

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Creamy Natural

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin

Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Light

Loreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Black (college favorite)

Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker (high school favorite)

P1010699

I bought these products with the intent of recreating my everyday look with less expensive options. I also plan to compare them to some of the other products that I have been using daily. This is also my first time using any products from NYC and Rimmel.

My first impressions after using these products today are that the blush is a pretty cool (and bouncy) concept. I really like the color that I chose and it was easy to apply. The BB Cream is alright, I think I need to give it a few more tries before I can really decide. The bronzer is nice and it didn’t make me look orange. The powder is so so, it did keep my skin matte for quite a while but I don’t really like the way it smells. The eyebrow pencil is really nice, I enjoy the little brush on the end as well. The eyeshadow is awesome! It stayed on all day! I usually get home from work with very little eyeshadow left on my lids and it was all in place today. In fact, I picked up two more colors at CVS on my way home from work today! The mascara was just as good as I remember. I really like the way it separates my lashes. The Lip Smacker was a just for fun purchase… I’ve always liked the tint of the Dr. Pepper flavor. 🙂

I plan to do a review and swatches of the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows soon. I also plan to compare and review all of the BB Creams I’ve been trying lately.

Have you used any of these products? What do you think? Is there anything you’d like to see?
