NYC Expert Last Lipstick Swatches & First Impressions

Hey girls, I am so excited to finally be doing a video on these lipsticks. I have been looking for them everywhere and I finally came a crossed them at Walmart for $1.96, which who could pass on that price? So as soon as I picked them up I just had to do a swatches video and first impressions. 

I hope you girls enjoy this video! Let me know which color is your favorite!

My March Favorites of 2014

Hey everyone! I just posted my March favorites in my YouTube channel. It would seriously mean a lot to me if you took the time to watch & subscribe <3 

I have been in a kick of doing videos and I honestly love it so much, so I will probably have a bunch more videos coming up within the next few weeks :D I hope you all enjoy and thanks so much for watching my videos and all that fun stuff. I love you all! 

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Plum Pop

Hey loves, I have an exciting post today which is on the new Clinique Cheek Pop blush in Plum Pop. I was so excited when they released these blushes because they are honestly so perfect for the Spring time by the amazing floral pattern. I mean what can be cuter then that? 

Plum Pop is a beautiful cool plum blush with a mixture of pink. It is also considered a satin finish. The pigmentation is amazing on these babies. They apply well and just look amazing on the cheeks. When I saw photos online I knew I had to get one, so when I went to the store,  I didn't realize how small the blush was compared to a MAC Blush or even the Milani Blush. It does come with .12 oz of product but compared to the new Milani Rose Powder blush there is .60 oz worth of product. 

For the price of $21.00 it was hard to buy this blush, but with the quality of the blush it was worth the price. I would give this blush a A+.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Beige-ing Beauty

Hey loves, this is the last Maybelline Color Tattoo I had gotten from the new Dare to Go Nude collection. I only picked up the 4 shades. I may go back and get the other two, but I have not decided yet. Would you girls like to see swatches of the other two? If so please just let me know and I may go a head and pick them up :D

Beige-ing Beauty is very close to Pure Nude. Except Beige-ing Beauty has more gold shimmer to it, so there is a lot more of a yellow tint to it compared to a light whiter shade. I think this is a beautiful shade for the Spring since it does have that hint of gold to it. I wish there was a little better color pay off with this one. Out of the 4 this is my least favorite. 

Overall I would give this one a C+ rating.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Sleek & Spice

Hey girls, here is another post on the limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo which is from the new Dare to Go Nude collection. I honestly cannot get enough of this collection. The color tattoo's are amazing, the elixir's are amazing and the lipsticks are just to die for. I seriously love this whole entire collection and I have never been so excited for a drug store collection like I was with this one, since I am such a sucker for nudes and neutral shades.

Sleep & Spice is a beautiful brown color with a metallic finish. There is a mixture of red and taupe in this color which I love. I was very excited about this one since I knew it would be a great color for all over the lid. The color pay off was amazing and these cream shadows are extremely creamy and do not crease on the lid. 

Overall I would give this baby a A+ since its perfection!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pure Nude

Hey loves, I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. I love Sundays because they are perfect days for blogging! It's also the time I take and get updated on YouTube videos as well. Today I have a couple of post I will be doing on more of the limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo's from the Dare to Go Nude collection. The one I will be doing in this post is called Pure Nude.

Pure Nude is a very light cream color with a little hint of yellow and a hint of pink. This shade is extremely shimmery and compared to my skin tone it was very hard to show the color since I have very fair skin. I don't think I will use this one too much because the only thing it would be good for would be a base for the lid. Other then that I wouldn't be able to wear it alone since the color barely shows up. Even though I wasn't happy with how light the color is, I am always impressed with the quality of these cream shadows. They are extremely easy to apply and they are very blend-able. 

Overall I would give this one a B rating.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Nude Compliment

Hey everyone, I am so excited about this post because I finally found the new Limited Edition Color Tattoo's by Maybelline. These were released in there Dare to Go Nude collection, which includes 6 limited edition color tattoo's. Out of the 6 that were released I ended up only picking up 4 of them, which were all the lighter shades. I am such a sucker for limited edition products.

Nude Compliment is a very nice bronze taupe shade. It has a hint of bronze to it as well. It has a shimmery finish, so its far from being a matte finish. I love this color because it is a perfect all over the lid shade. You could wear this one as a base or just by its self which I know thats how I will be wearing it. The pigmentation is great and the color is beautiful.

I found these at Walgreen's and right now they were Buy One Get One 50% Off, which is an amazing deal. I highly recommend these if you can get your hands on them. I would give this bad boy a A+ rating.

NYX Butter Lipstick Swatches

Hey loves, I have another video coming your way which is on the NYX Butter lipsticks. I recently got a couple new ones that I have not done reviews on, but I thought I would go a head and do swatches of the ones that I currently have so you guys can see them right next to each other. 

I can't wait to get more butter lipsticks because they are all so amazing and just so different compared to any other lipsticks that I own. Don't forget to like and subscribe to my channel :D


NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops

Hello loves, here is another one of the new NYX Butter Lipsticks that I had recently purchased. This one is in the shade Pops. Out of all the butter lipsticks I own this is the one that I have been wearing the most.

Pops is a nice neutral mauve shade. It is one of the best mauve lipsticks that I own. Most of my mauve lipsticks look to brown on me but this one just looks amazing and natural. It has more of a pink tone to it which I love. It is perfect for just an everyday lipstick which is why I love it so much. I highly recommend this one if you are into mauve colors. It is the perfect one for your collection.

Overall I would give this one a A as well!! I can't get enough of these!

NYX Butter Lipstick in Sweet Tart

Hey girls, today I have a review on one of NYX Butter Lipsticks in Sweet Tart. I have honestly fell in love with these lipsticks. Anything NYX makes, I am seriously in love with. I had reviewed a couple of these a few post back, but I recently purchased three most since then so I thought I would go a head and get these up here as well so you can see how amazing they are!

Sweet Tart is considered a deep pink with a blue undertone. I found this color so be more of a settle rose pink color. The pigmentation is amazing and I found this one to be opaque as well. I love how smooth it glides on and just looks so natural on your lips because its also very hydrating. It also has a satin finish. 

I totally recommend this baby because look at how beautiful that color is! I can't get enough of it. I would have to rate this one a A. 

Battle of the Blues Featuring: Essie

Hey everyone, I recently did a video called Battle of the Blues featuring Essie nail polishes. I am such a huge Essie fan and I wanted to think of a fun way to do swatches for a video, so I broke it up into different colors to post videos of each. So I am starting with the blues first, and then I will move into pinks and reds, then oranges and greens and then purple and neutral shades. 

I have never loved a nail polish brand so much in my life and I always feel like Essie always has one of the best shade selection and I can't wait to purchase more. If you have a favorite Essie color let me know what it is so I can go out and pick up that shade as well!

Also, I hope you enjoy this video!

NYX Baked Blush in Full On Femme

Hey loves, I have another post on one of the new NYX Baked Blushes, and this is in the shade Full On Femme. I honestly cannot get enough of these baked blushes by NYX. All of NYX products all seem to amaze me because they are all so amazing. 

Full On Femme is a light pink, which reminds me of almost a bubble gum pink. It just adds the perfect look on your cheeks since it is a light color. The texture is amazing and there isn't much shimmer so you don't have to worry about your skin looking shiny. Which I am not a fan of, so this blush is just perfect for me.
