NEW Mirabella Beauty Velvet Lip Pencil in Wanted| Holiday 2015

Hey loves, welcome back to my blog. I have another exciting post on another product that is releasing with the Mirabella Holiday Collection, which is the Jewel Thief Collection. This collection will be available in the beginning of October. I already reviewed the eyeshadow palette from this collection, so if you are interested in checking that out, you can find it here!

With this collection, Mirabella released a new Velvet Lip Pencil in the shade Wanted. I own one of the velvet lip pencils already, so I was very excited to receive this new shade. Aside from this new limited edition shade, they also have 6 permanent shades. And they retail for $25.00 each. 

Wanted is a beautiful mauve shade. It is the perfect shade for the holiday time and its also great for just a everyday lip color. I love the texture of these lip pencils. They glide right onto the lips and they're not drying and do not sink into the fine lines in my lips. Also, they last for hours and have great pigmentation. 

I highly recommend this shade for this time of year. It is perfect, and I know I will be wearing it a ton this holiday season!

This product was sent to me, but all opinions are my own.

NEW Pur Minerals Lip Lure Swatches

Hey everyone, today I have an exciting post on some of the new Pur Minerals Lip Lure lip lacquers. They recently came out with 5 shades, and they retail for $22.00 each, and can be bought at Ulta or online at Pur Minerals. I have never tried any lip products by Pur before, so I was very excited when they sent me these in the mail to try out! So I wanted to share some swatches with you all. And I must say, all of these shades are perfect for fall and winter.

The packaging is silver and comes with .5 oz of product. The packaging reminds me a lot of the ELF glosses because you twist the product up, and it comes through the sponge applicator. With the applicator it does make it really easy to apply the product. 

The Shades:

  • Mystic which is a beautiful deep berry shade.
  • Graceful which is a brown nude shade. 
  • Belle which is more of a pinky nude shade.
  • Fiery is a deep red with a blue undertone.
  • Fancy is a beautiful mauve shade.
All of these lip lacquers are very rich in pigmentation and opaque. They also leave your lips feeling really hydrated. The texture is very soft and feels very smooth on the lips. These are considered a liquid lipstick. My favorite shade of the whole punch if Fiery. I think it is such a perfect red for the fall and winter time. 

New Mirabella Beauty Diamond Deceit Palette| Holiday 2015

Hey loves, today I have an exciting review on one of the new Mirabella Beauty palettes from the Jewel Thief Collection coming out for the Holidays. This collection comes with two new eye palettes, and two new lip products. I was lucky enough to receive a couple products from this collection, and I couldn't wait to show you. This collection will be coming out in the beginning of October at

The palette I have to share with you guys is in the shade Diamond Deceit which retails for $48.00. They claim these shadows combine a liquid and powder formula for shimmery and vibrant colors. This palette comes with a mixture of grays, silvers, a light iridescent pink and a aquamarine shade. The shades in this palette is literally perfect for a great winter look. I think the silvers are perfect for a glam look. 

I really enjoyed the texture of the shades. They are filled shimmer, but its not chunky so it isn't going to fall all over your face. The shades were also very easy to blend. Most of the shades were very pigmented except for the light pink shade. Since it is more of a iridescent shade, it would make a good topper to put over other eyeshadows.  My favorite shades were the medium gray shade, and the gun metal gray. 

I really enjoyed this palette and I love the concept of the formula. This palette is perfect for creating a glam look for this holiday season. 

Glamour Dolls Single Eyeshadows Review

Hey everyone, I am so sorry that I have not posted a review in what seems like forever, but don't you worry, I am back and have a ton of products to review for you guys! And I thought why not start with an extremely affordable brand. Glamour Dolls recently released 5 new single eyeshadows and they were so kind, and sent me them to review for you guys. 

They released 5 new shades and they retail for $3.99 each and come in a couple of different finishes. 

  • Snow Day is a matte creamy beige. I loved the texture of this shade. I thought it was very buttery and blended really nice into the crease. I love using this shade as a transition color since it is a little darker then my lid. 
  • Sorcery is a bronzed shimmery copper. I love this shade to apply all over my lid. The pigmentation was pretty good on its own, but when you add a primer it really makes the gold pop.
  • Backstage is a golden earth shimmery green color. This color is my favorite out of the bunch and it is seriously so pigmented. It is one of those colors that will be perfect for the fall and it just adds such a beautiful color to any makeup look. 
  • Ballerina's Revenge is a pink highlight shimmer. For such a light color, I thought the shade was really pigmented.  I do not own any baby pink shadows, so I am very pleased to have one in my collection now. I was so worried that the color was going to be very sheer, but the pigmentation was really good.
  • Athena is a matte burgundy rose. This is a great staple for the fall time as well. I did notice that it was a little chalky, and sometimes its hard for matte shadows to not appear chalky. Even though the shade was a little chalky, I thought the pigmentation was great and was very easy to blend
Overall for $3.99, these shadows are a steal. I am also in love with the packaging and the added bow is just adorable. Also, if you love these shadows, you should really check out some of the other products they have listed. They are all affordable. You buy purchase these shadows at
