MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam Rihanna

Hey girls today I have a post on the new MAC Viva Glam lipstick which this one is for Rihanna. I love the packaging of this lipstick! The red is just amazing. And also the red lettering inside on the tube. And on top of the amazing packaging the lip color is beautiful. It's considered a frosty blue red and has a frost finish. I found this lipstick to be extremely opaque and doesn't leave any streaking. I love the texture since it did apply smooth and looked amazing on my lips. 

Maybelline Nail Polish in Lust For Lilac

Hey loves, I have been in such a mood for Spring and Summer colors so I came a cross this really pretty color from Walgreen's. Its in the shade Lust For Lilac which as you can tell by the pictures is a really pretty Lilac color. I found this color to be perfect for the Spring time. I always smile just looking at my nails because its bright color. I would recommend this color. I have been wearing it for a few days now and there has been no chips or anything! I am a huge fan of Maybelline nail polishes.

Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Sun Kissed

Hey girls, I have another post on the Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm. This one is in the shade Sun Kissed. I fell in love with this one. The color is seriously perfect for the summer time.

Sun Kissed is a light coral/red color. Just like the other one I found this one to be very moisturizing as well and just looks amazing on the lips. For the price of $4.99 (I believe that's what it was at walmart) you really can't beat the price. This color is just the best. I can't wait to get the rest of them.

All together I would give this one a A+.

Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Give Me a Cuddle

Hey girls, I have an exciting post! I went to Walmart earlier, and of course had to go look at all the makeup, and I was so excited to finally find the Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm's. I know they were selling in the UK, but now they are here in the US. I was jumping for joy because I am seriously in love with balm's. This one is in the shade Give Me a Cuddle.

Give Me a Cuddle, lets just start off by saying how amazing the name of this balm is. I mean seriously, it's the cutest name ever. Give Me a Cuddle is a hot pink shade. I am seriously in love with this balm. It's the most moisturizing balm I have ever tried! It had a very even apply. The color is so pretty. I found these to be much better then the Revlon balms, and these are also much cheaper. They are around $4.99.

Overall I would give this balm an A+.

Wet N Wild Lipstick in Pinkerbell

Hey everyone today I have a post on a Wet N Wild lipstick in Pinkerbell. I have always been such a huge fan of Wet N Wild that I wanted to review a couple of the lipsticks for you. And this one is in the shade Pinkerbell, which is seriously the cutest name ever!

Pinkerbell is a hot pink color with a hint of coral. These are $2.99 and you can find these at Walgreen's, Walmart, and any other place that sells Wet N Wild. To begin, for the price you seriously cannot pass these up. They are such a steal and the quality of this lipstick is amazing. It's very opaque and doesn't leave streaking on your lips. The color pay off is seriously amazing. And the color lasted on my lips for such a long time. I have never been so impressed with a drug store lipstick before. Now I'm on a hunt to get the rest for my collection. :)

Overall I would give this lipstick a A.

Wet N Wild Palette in Floral Values

Hey girls, I have another post on the new Wet N Wild palettes. This one is in the shade Floral Values which has purples and a pop of pink. This one caught my eye the most because I do love the pop of pink in the palette.

Floral Values comes with a light shimmery purple for the browbone, a matte cream color for the base, a bright pink for the eyelid, a matte medium purple for the definer and then a dark shimmery blue for the crease. I was impressed with the color selection for this palette because the colors all go to well so easily. The colors weren't chalky, but they weren't very pigmented. The swatches below were swatched twice, so you really need to apply it. 

Overall I would give this palette a B-.

Wet N Wild Palette in The Naked Truth

Hey girls I am very excited to finally be doing reviews on the new Wet N Wild palettes. I found them at a store called Shopko, and these were priced at $3.99 but they each came with a $1.00 coupon so I bought each palette for $2.99. The one I was most excited for was The Naked Truth. I am such a sucker for neutral shades. So I was happy they made a neutral palette.

The Naked Truth comes with 5 beautiful natural shades. The browbone color was a shimmer taupe shade, the base was a matte cream color, the eyelid was a brownish taupe color, the crease was a medium brown and then the definer was a matte brown. I was disappointed in the pigmentation of the browbone shade and as well as the base color. They both did not show up that well and you really had to pack it on the lid. But the other colors had fairly good color pay off. Either way the colors in this palette make a wonderful eye creation. 

Overall I would give this palette a B-.

NYX Butter Lipstick in Snow Cap

Hey loves, I have one last post on the NYX Butter Lipsticks. I only picked up 3 so far, but I do plan on getting the rest of the shades because so far I have been loving the shades I got already. This one is in the shade called Snow Cap.

Snow Cap is also a satin finish, and this shade is considered a beige with pink undertone. This one is one of my favorites. To me this is way more nude on my skin tone, so I don't see too much pink undertone in the lipstick. But this one applied pretty opaque which I love. I would give this one a A.

NYX Butter Lipstick in Hubba Bubba

Hey loves, I have another post on the new NYX Butter Lipsticks. This one is in the shade Hubba Bubba. When I saw this one in Ulta it really caught my eye and I knew I needed it for my collection.

Hubba Bubba is also a satin finish just like all the rest of the lipsticks. It is considered a pale pink with blue undertone. But to me the shade turned out to be more of a bubble gum pink and I didn't pick up too much of a blue undertone. This is going to be a huge hit for the Spring time. I would give this one a B+.

NYX Butter Lipstick in Fun Size

Hey loves today I have a post on the all new NYX Butter Lipstick's. I am such a huge fan of the butter glosses so when I found out they were coming out with the lipsticks I was seriously so excited. This one is in the shade Fun Size.

According to the NYX website it states that Fun Size is considered a brown pink, but I found this shade to be more of a coral pink. I didn't see too much a brown undertone. These lipsticks have a satin finish. I really liked this color and I think its the perfect shade for my skin tone. I liked the texture of this lipstick, but it wasn't opaque like I was hoping for. Overall I would give this lipstick a B.

MAC Lipstick in Morning Rose

Hey girls, here is another lip stick from my recent MAC haul. This is in the shade Morning Rose which is also from the Magnetic Nude collection. When I saw that they were releasing a shade like this, I knew I had to get it.

Morning Rose is considered a soft cool rose and its a cremesheen finish which is one of my favorite finishes from MAC. I love how smoothly this lipstick applied and it's such a beautiful rose color. I wish I would have picked up a back up of this lipstick because I have been wearing it a lot already!

MAC Lipstick in Close Contact

Hey girls, today I have a post on the new MAC lip stick in Close Contact. Close Contact is part of the new Magnetic Nude collection which means this shade is limited edition. I was so excited when MAC released this collection because the colors are so pretty, and I just knew I had to get my hands on this lip stick.

Close Contact is a peachy nude shade and it is a Amplified finish, which I am in love with. I love the creamy texture of this lip stick and it is one of those perfect nude shades. The color was very opaque so it did cover my lips perfectly without any streaking. I am seriously in love with this shade and I know I will be getting my use of out it.

MAC Magnetic Nude Collection Haul

Hey girls I have a small MAC haul for you today. I had placed an order from Nordstrom's and it finally came in a few days ago so I thought I would show you what I got from the Magnetic Nude collection by MAC. I wanted to get more then that I did, which I may order a couple of eye shadows, but my goal was to get these two lip sticks.

The first one I got was Morning Rose which is described as a soft cool rose and it is a Cremesheen finish. Then the last thing I got was the lip stick in Close Contact which is described as a creamy peach and that has a Amplified finish. I was extremely excited for Close Contact. 

I will post swatches and stuff and reviews once I use them for a little bit :) What did you girls get from this collection?
