Milani Coming up Rose blushes Swatches & first impressions

Hey Ladies!
It's been awhile since I blogged but I'm coming back =)
Life has been busy lately, & I just haven't had time to sit down & do reviews.

Today I wanted to share with you all the new blushes from Milani. 
This will just be a post to show swatches. I've only tried one of them once so I'm not ready to do a full review, I will just go ahead & do an first impression & swatches. 

Top Row: Bella Rose & Romantic Rose
Bottom Row: Flora Passion & Warm Petals

Left to Right:
Bella Rosa, Romantic Rose, Flora Passion, &Warm Petals

First Impression:
I wore Romantic Rose for a full day & it held up in the heat. 
Went on smoothly & didn't cause any breakouts
It's matte which is a BIG plus, I layered my favorite highlighter over it & it looked amazing!

All of the blushes have a funky smell to them, but it faded quickly after applying to my face.
All of them swatched nicely. No chalkiness or fallout
The three pink ones are matte, but Warm Petals has shimmer.
They retail for $6.99.. the blushes are the size of a compact powder, so a lot bigger than a MAC blush.

Overall I think that these are nice for a drugstore blush. If you can get your hands on these I would suggest giving them a try. If you don't like it remember Walgreens & CVS will take it back :)

I will do an updated post once I try out the rest.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

I've never tried an hair oil before so when BZZAGENT sent me this to try out I couldn't pass it up.
It's a three in one oil that can work for hair, body, & face.

I spray this product on my hair after toweling drying it. I don't spray it on my roots because my hair gets oily quick so I spray it from my neck down. It gives my hair a natural shine without making my hair look oily.
My ankles stay pretty dry so I decided to spray a little bit on them. I feel like it made then a little bit softer but not as good as a lotion or even vaseline would do.
Being that my face is so oily & acne prone I decided not to test it on my face.



It isn’t every day an innovative and sexy multipurpose product is made available to you. But an all-in-one product that delivers silky, shiny hair and soft, supple skin? That’s sexy by association. NEW Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil is a breakthrough multiuse formula that delivers rapid-action nourishment to treat your hair, body and even dry areas on your face with nooily residue.
  • Combines three weightless oils – olive, avocado and shea – to transform dry hair and skin
  • Made for everyday use on your hair, body and face
  • Instantly absorbs in a touch with no oily residue
  • Can be used on damp or dry hair
  • Available for suggested price of $5.99

Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge line

I've been searching for a new shampoo & conditioner that would bring my hair back to life. It felt so dry & looked so dull so I was happy that BZZAGENT sent me these products to try out.
-My hair feels so soft & looks healthy
-More manageable. This shampoo also helps out with frizz
-Love the smell!
- The 1 minute conditioner is amazing! I like it alot more than Aussie's 3 minute miracle

Overall when I run I will be repurchasing this entire line.

Infused with superfruits, the Hydra Recharge formula actively replenishes hair for silky-soft hydration that lasts. Hydra Recharge will recharge your thirsty locks and keep your hair super silky and surprisingly weightless for up to two whole days.
  • Hydra Recharge Shampoo is a hydration innovation; the first to feature thousands of beads that burst on impact
  • Hydra Recharge range contains superfruits goji berry, passion fruit and kiwi to actively replenish without heaviness
  • Hydra Recharge 1-Minute Moisture-Plenish Treatment is a powerful deep treatment whose revolutionary lightweight crème-gel formula transforms dry hair with a surge of high-performance hydration in just one minute.

Applied easily, but I really don't like the texture so I won't be buying the rest of the collection.
I found mine at Walgreen's for $3.99

NOTD: 02/28

 For this Mani I used one coat of O.P.I's over Candy Coated from Sinful Colors 

Click here to see over a light pink polish.

February Favorites!

HIGHLIGHTER: Dior Amber Diamond. In the Winter my skin always looks so "blah", but this wonderful highlighter makes me look alive. Well worth the money!
Review here

PERFUME: Vera Wang Lovestruck. Such a girly fragrance.
Review here

BLUSH: I've been addicted to blush lately so I have a few that I've been switching between this Month.
First up I've been enjoying both Cubic & Dame from my MAC Pro Palette
Swatches here
Next up is NARS Angelika. From looking at this blush in the pan it looks a bit scary because it's filled with glitter. Once applied the glitter seems to disappear & leaves my cheeks with a natural sheen. Just make sure to powder your cheeks before applying this blush.
Swatches here

EYESHADOW: Ever since I got the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette it's the only thing I reach for. It's perfect for creating an everyday look as well as a night time look.
Swatches here

MASCARA: Maybelline The Rocket is one of those Mascaras that I wan't too crazy about at first, but after about 5 uses it started to dry a bit & now I'm really liking the formula.
First thoughts here

LIPSTICK: MAC Angel is one of those lipsticks that I can wear everyday no matter what eyeshadow or blush I wear. This is one that I will keep in my collection.

2 Coats of WNW Cotton Mouth 
& 1 coat of O.P.I

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Valentine's Day Mani

2 Coats of WNW's "I red a good book"
1 coat of Nicole By O.P.I's "Love your Life"

The hearts polish was difficult to work with because the hearts wouldn't stick to the brush so I had to do a layer of the glitter & then go back with a toothpick & fish the hearts out & place them where I wanted.
 I know it doesn't look perfect but this is the first time trying this polish.

YSL Rouge Volupte- Silky Sensational Radiant Lipstick in #7 "Lingerie Pink"

I finally picked up my first YSL lipstick to see what all the hype was about.
I chose the Color #7- Lingerie Pink.

It's a light creamy pink that'll match with both Grey & brown shadows.
This lipstick feels like a lipstick, gloss, & balm all in one.
It's very creamy & apply easily.
Makes my lips feel so soft & moisturized.
Very pigmented.
Unfortunately just like every other lipstick this one wears off after eating/drinking.
Overall I love the feel of it, but for $34 I don't know if I'd purchase it in a different shade.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. Swatches!

I own both  Naked & Naked 2 so I thought this would be a good addition. I'm not always in the mood for shimmer shadows so I know this palette will be loved on those days when I want a more subtle look.
There are 6 shadows...
1 shimmer - Verve
5 Mattes- Foxy, W.O.S., Naked 2, Faint, & Crave

As you can tell from the above swatches Foxy barely shows up on my skin so it can be used to blend out any harsh lines. Verve is a nice highlight color, while W.O.S and Naked 2 can be used as an all over lid color. Faint will work great for the crease & Crave will be the perfect definer color for the out "V'.
This palette is worth the $27!

Too Faced Boudoir Eyes soft & sexy eyeshadow collection

This palette is part of Too Faced's Spring line. I also got the Sweethearts blush, if you wanna check out that review click here.

 DAY: In The Buff, Fuzzy Handcuffs, & Voulez-Vous
CLASSIC: Satin Sheets, Sugar Walls, Garter Belt
FASHION: Birthday Suit, Lap Dance, French Tickler

The little tin that that shadows come in is really cute & sterdy making it perfect for traveling. The shadows are all very pigmented & soft. I didn't have any fallout. Overall It's a great  palette.
