NYX Cosmetics The Natural Shadow Palette - Photos and Swatches

Today I have a review of the NYX The Natural Shadow Palette. NYX products are hit and miss and this one for me was a miss. I will explain more about why and you will see in the swatches why it was not the greatest selection of eyeshadows out there. Read on to see my thoughts!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard - Review

I bought the NARS new concealer when I was at The Makeup Show LA a few weeks ago. I have been using it every day since I bought it and ready to now give my review. I definitely needed to find a new concealer since the one I was using was not giving me enough coverage. I knew this would be the best time to switch and try out something new. Read on to find out how I liked this concealer.

L'Oreal Versailles Romance Colour Riche Balm (2 Shades) - Photos and Swatches

I love the previous L'Oreal Colour Riche balms so I was excited to see they came out with pastel shades for Spring. I kind of expected that they wouldn't be pigmented and amazing in color. I think I'm a sucker for light pretty colored things so packaging was one of the reasons why I bought these. Plus I do enjoy the formula on these since they are comfortable wearing and moisturizing. See more photos below!

The wonder that is the Wonder Pencil! This new product from NYX is meant to be your essential pencil for three important things: Conceal, brighten, and line. There are three shades available in light, medium, and deep. I bought light and is the right shade for me. So how was the formula and did it work for me? Read more below for my review!

NOTD: Essie Pretty Edgy and Mojito Madness

I decided to do my nails green for St. Patrick's Day! Yeah pretty obvious but I never wear green nail polish so I figured this was a good way to start. Plus I couldn't find any green clothes so my nails will do. I used Essie Pretty Edgy and Essie Mojito Madness on my ring finger.

I need to really wear green polish more often, I love the way it looks and green really pops. Hope you like and enjoy your Sunday!

NARS Cosmetics Satin Lip Pencils (4 Shades) - Swatches and Review

Today I have a few swatches of the new NARS Satin lip pencils. I first saw them at The Makeup Show LA and I bought one which was Lodhi the coral shade. After trying it I just had to get more! So I ordered three more on the Nordstrom website to add to my growing NARS lip collection. I am so obsessed with these, they are amazing lip pencils. More info and my review (which you can probably tell will be a rave) below!

Flower Beauty Kiss Stick High-Shine Lip Color (2 Shades) - Swatches and Review

In addition to picking up the Flower Beauty velvet lip colors, I picked up a few of the high-shine lip colors as well. I figured I was going to end up liking these more than the velvet finish. Didn't happen. These were great in pigmentation but not that comfortable on the lips. See more photos and swatches below!

Recap: The Makeup Show LA 2013

The Makeup Show is a must go-to show and this year was no different. Definitely my favorite makeup/beauty show out there. They do so many different seminars and keynote speakers so you are not only buying what you need/want but learning as well. You can learn so much from the amazing artists that are there and take time out of their busy schedules to teach something they are great at. More pictures below!
