    Clinique Color Surge Eyeshadow Duo in Sahara Gold, Review & Swatches

    September 18, 2011 Kelly Baum

    // not sponsored There are few colors of eyeshadows I love more than gold. It’s just the perfect, universal eyeshadow shade that is guaranteed to make you look like you have your life together. Since gold shimmer eyeshadows are my weakness, I absolutely had to pick this one up. This is the Clinique Color Surge Eyeshadow Duo in the shade Sahara Gold that I picked up from a Cosmetics Company Outlet for only $12.

  • Bare Minerals All Over Face Color~Rose Radiance, Review & Swatch

    September 2, 2011 Kelly Baum

    I’m going to be honest, this is a really boring product. There’s just nothing exciting about the color, or the shimmer, or anything at all really. I don’t know why this is called an “All Over Face Color”, because seriously, do you put pink colors all over your face? No, Bare Escentuals, no.The color itself is very sheer. In fact, all you really see of it when it’s on your face is the shimmer it gives. It does give a…

  • Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick~Hooked on Pink, Review & Swatch

    August 30, 2011 Kelly Baum

    Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in 065 “Hooked on Pink” is the perfect color for fall! This is a cream finish lipstick (it may look shimmery in the swatch below but it is a cream!) in a berry, almost red color. I’m really impressed with the application of this lipstick. It glides on smoothly and doesn’t highlight any imperfections. It does have a bit of a cosmetic-like smell, but it’s not too bad. True to life color! The Pros: This deep…

  • elf Essentials Concealer Brush

    August 29, 2011 Kelly Baum

    My new holy grail brush! Although this is your typical small concealer brush, I love this because it’s only $1 and easily found at Target. It’s a synthetic brush, which it great because it works well with so many products. What I really love is the multi-purpose points of this brush. It’s perfect for pinpoint concealing, running shadow along the bottom lashline, applying eyeliner, and applying lipstick! The bristles are thick and dense, which really made this brush stand out.…

  • Milani HD Advanced Lip Color~Cotton Candy, Review & Swatch

    August 28, 2011 Kelly Baum

    The Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in 111 Cotton Candy is a very soft, glittery baby pink lipstick. The product comes in a black tube embossed with ‘M’s and gold accents. It’s twist tube style, but very slow, and since the product is so soft, I would not recommend twisting it farther than just beyond the top. Before you apply this, I warn you to make sure you don’t have dry or chapped lips, or this lipstick will show up…
