NYX Baked Blush in Spanish Rose

Hey loves, today I have a post on the new NYX Baked Blush in Spanish Rose. NYX recently released a bunch of new products and this was one of the new products. They came out with the baked blushes and the baked eyeshadows, so I knew I had to pick up a couple of the baked blushes to try out.

Spanish Rose is a medium color pink with a little of a red undertone. It's not a matte blush, but it also wasn't too shimmery as well. The packaging of these blushes are amazing. The opening is a cute little bow! I mean what could be more perfect then that? Also I found the color to be very pigmented as well and it doesn't need a lot of build up because it is pigmented.

Overall I would give this blush a A+. Cute packaging and great color pay off, its a must have! They only range for $5.99, but a lot of times you can get them buy one get one 50% off. 

MAC Lipstick in Dreaming Dahlia

Hey loves, I have my last post for my haul from the MAC Spring collection. So I thought I would post the best for last which is Dreaming Dahlia. This is seriously my new favorite MAC lipstick right now :D

Dreaming Dahlia is considered a Sheer Red Coral with a lustre finish. I have never loved a red lipstick as much as this one. Since it is a lsutre finish, it's not as opaque so it has that glossy finish which I love because then the color isn't super over powering. It's just a pretty red with  hint of coral and it's seriously perfect for the Spring and Summer time.

Overall I would give this lipstick a A+.


MAC Lipstick in Naked Bud

Hey loves, today I have a post on the MAC lipstick in Naked Bud which was part of the Spring collection. I am in love with MAC lipsticks, and I seriously cannot get enough of them. 

Naked Bud is a lustre finish and is considered a neutral sheer nude color. Which it for sure is. I love nude shades and I thought this one is perfect. It applies smoothly and just looks amazing on the lips. It does have a little of a orange undertone. It reminds me of Shy Girl by MAC. If you love nudes I would so get this one added to your collection!

I would give Naked Bud a B+ rating.

NYX Butter Glosses Swatches

Hey loves, I recently made another video on the NYX Butter Glosses. These are my favorite lip glosses! They are so rich and smooth that they look so beautiful on the lips. I seriously love each of these. I do own most of them, there are a few more that I still need to get, so hopefully I can pick up those eventually.

Out of all the butter glosses out there which ones are your favorite?

MAC Lipstick in Heavenly Hybrid

Hey everyone, I just have a little update before I start this post. I finally got a new laptop which means I have some major inspiration to keep up with my blogging and YouTube  channel even more. So expect a lot of new posts and better edited photos! As well as some more YouTube videos! I ended up getting the Macbook Pro and I am seriously in love with it. It is the best decision I ever made. So I just had to get that out there :D So I hope to keep posting more for you guys because I seriously love blogging.

So today I have a post on the new MAC Limited Edition lipstick in Heavenly Hybrid. This is from the new Spring collection which I showed in a haul post a couple post back. I was finally able to try the lipsticks out so I wanted to post reviews! But this is in the shade Heavenly Hybrid.

Heavenly Hybrid is considered a mid tone berry and has a lustre finish, which is one of my favorite finishes by MAC. This is by far one of my favorite MAC lipsticks now. I seriously love it. It applied so smoothly and just looked beautiful on my lips. 

Overall I would give this lipstick a A.

Battle of the Balms: Rimmel London, Wet N Wild, Jordana and Revlon

Hey girls, today I thought I would do a video since I haven't done one in two weeks! This one is called Battle of the Balms. In this video I compare various of colors from different balms from Rimmel London, Wet N Wild, Jordana and Revlon. Since I am such a sucker for balms, I thought I would compare the ones I own.
