Maybelline Summer 2013 Limited Edition Nail Polish in Mint Mist

Hey girls, here is another one of the new Limited Edition Summer 2013 Collection nail polishes in Mint Mist. This one was one of my favorites from this collection. It was the first one in this collection that really caught my eye. I have always been such a sucker for the minty green colors. But like the name its called Mint Mist, which the color its self is a mint color, but it also has the blue in it.

I was in love with this nail polish as well. I didn't have any problems with applying it to my nails. In the photos above and below there is only two coats added which its all it needed. I would recommend this one too because its also another perfect shade for the summer.

Positive things:
  • Only took two coats to apply
  • The name is seriously perfection
  • Went on smoothly & has no streaking
Negative things:
If you can get your hands on this shade I would if I were you. They range from $4.00-$6.00 depending on where you buy them from. Look below for bunch more photos!

Maybelline Summer 2013 Limited Edition Nail Polish in Canary Cool

Hey girls, I am finally getting around to posting photos of the new Maybelline Summer Collection 2013 Nail Polishes. All of the products in this collection are limited edition. Last time I went to Walgreen's I spotted these and ended up picking up three from the collection.

This one is in the shade Canary Cool. It's a really pretty cream color with a little hint of yellow. It reminds me of the beach and the sand. I think this is a perfect color for the summer. In the photos above & below, there is only two coats. As you can tell it applied really well and there wasn't any streaking what so ever which is a plus. I was really impressed with this shade.

Positive things: 
  • Only needed to apply two coats
  • The shade is such a pretty color
  • The nail polish has a nice finish to it
  • I love the formula of these
Negative things:
If you can get your hands on this shade I would if I were you. They range from $4.00-$6.00 depending on where you buy them from. Look below for bunch more photos!

Physicians Formula Baked Collection Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in Baked Spices

Hey girls today I have a post on the Physicians Formula Baked Collection Eye Shadow in Baked Spices. I was lucky enough to find this at Big Lots for only $3.50 when these normally go for $7.95. I feel in love with the colors in this trio.

Baked Spices comes with three colors. It has a medium shade brown which has some gold shimmer and a hint of orange, a light cream color and a dark brown color. The pigmentation was actually pretty good. It did have a great color pay off. Since these are all natural colors, I could see my self wearing these a lot. The only thing I didn't enjoy about this is the packaging. The packaging is very bulky and takes up a lot of space. Overall I would give this a B-. Do you girls own any of these? If so which one do you own?

What I got:

  • MAC Eye Shadow Quad in Bare My Soul
  • MAC Blush in Ripe For Love
  • MAC Lip Stick in Altered Beige (I ended up buying two of these)
  • MAC Lip Stick in Feel My Pulse 

What did you girls get from this collection?

E.L.F Baked Eyeshadow in Enchanted

Hey girls, today I have a post on the E.L.F Baked Eyeshadow in Enchanted. I am normally a huge E.L.F fan because they have some really great products for an affordable price. I saw that Target had these finally so I picked this one up. This is part of the studio line so it only cost $3.00.

With baked eyeshadows, a lot of them are a huge hit or there a huge miss, and with this one I was not very pleased with it. It looks amazing in the packaging. But the color pay off was horrible. Its a light pink color with golden shimmer mixed in. I had to sit there and really apply it to even see it on my skin. I hate to do that with eyeshadows, so this is something that I will not be using in the future. I might try a couple other ones just to see if there pigmented. But this one isn't pigmented at all.

Maybelline Limited Edition Colorsensational Vivids Lipsticks

Hey loves, I have a post on the Limited Edition Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids lipsticks in Electric Fuchsia and in Orange Edge. These are both limited edition, and sadly these are the only two I own from the Vivids line. These are seriously some of the most pigmented lip sticks I have ever seen in my life. They are so bright and are extremely creamy. I am someone who normally buys light pink lip sticks and nude lip sticks, but I knew I needed to add some fun colors to my collection so I picked these two up. Keep looking through the photos to see the amazing swatches of these.

You can normally find Maybelline lip stick's anywhere that sells makeup. But since these are limited edition, you may have to check Amazon and Ebay to get your hands on them.

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Bikini-Tini

Hey everyone, today I have a post on the Creaseless Cream Shadow by Benefit in Bikini-Tini. Out of all the shades that were available this one really stood out to me. It is the perfect natural shade for me. It is a nice light pink nude color that looks amazing on the lids and makes a great base for any eye shadow color. I also loved the packaging that these came in. It looks very classy and just straight up adorable in  my collection. I really want to get more of these because they work so well.

You can find these anywhere that sells Benefit products. They are $20.00 each which is not bad for the the quality of this cream shadow. If you are looking for a cheaper product to use, try out the Maybelline Color Tattoo's which are around $7.00 each. They work really great as well, but I noticed these creaseless shadows are a lot easier to blend in. I would recommend this one.
