Swatches of Revlon Color stay Moisture Stain lip glosses

Hello! Happy Saturday everyone. I have to get ready for work and thought I'd post some swatches of the new Revlon color style moisture stain lip glosses. I haven't had a chance to actually wear or try them out on my lips, so I can't do a review. None the less, I love most Revlon lip products and the colors are so pretty that I just have to share! I am not a fan of lip glosses but these are supposed to be "stains". When applied they all go on smoothly and look glossy and wet. I picked up 5 of them in the colors 015 Barcelona Nights, 020 Rio Rush, 025 Cannes Crush, 040 Shanghai Sizzle, and 050 London Posh. The swatches of the lip stains begin in the order that I listed from left to right.

Review and swatches of Elf Disney Ariel Treasure Within Beauty Book

I was estatic to see that my Walgreens received the limited edition Ariel "Treasure Within Beauty Book". I got first dibs! I have never tried ny of the Disney villains palettes that came out last year during October, because I wasn't impressed impressed by the colors. I picked this Beauty Book up because I found this he packaging irrestible! It has a face chart and gives you two scenarios of how you could use the colors.  I just purchased it today and have not applied the colors on my face yet, therefore I don't know about the actual lasting power. I will try to do a look with this palette soon. Here are the pictures, enjoy!

NYX Box of Eye Shadows 112 Colors Review and Swatches

Hello everyone! I have been m.i.a because I had finals for the spring semester last week and today I began summer school. Yes how fun, right? In all honesty I do love school! I have class Mon-Thursday and will only be working Fri-Sun only for this summer semester, so I hope that I can start posting more often. I'm a true drugstore makeup junkie hoarder and I would love to share more reviews and swatches. So lately, I have been experimenting with my eye shadows and just looking through my makeup box trying to find old gems. I ordered the NYX Box of Eye Shadows of 112 Colors on Amazon a few months ago. Here is the link to it. I purchased it for $44.99 with free shipping. I don’t know how I could have had this amazing box of shadows put away for so long! The colors are pigmented and have very little fall out. There are two “layers” in this box. The first has a variety of colors that are matte and shimmery, neutrals, browns, nudes, and blacks. The second layer also has both shimmery and matte shadows with a variety of more intense colors like red, hot pink, blue, green, yellow, purple, and orange. This box is amazingly versatile! Unfortunately, I did drop the box of shadows a few times so it doesn't look that pretty anymore and a few eyeshadows fell out because of my clumsiness. I apologogize, but none the less I still think that this is an amazing product. Here are the swatches I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave any comments or questions!
