Makeup Palette Sale!

Hey everyone!

Sorry it’s been so long, but I plan on getting back to a routine on doing posts!

Today I am bringing to you makeup palette sales going on at My Habit (Amazon’s flash sale site). You may know some of these palettes as Coastal Scents, BH Cosmetics, Celia’s Makeup, etc. These palettes are made in China and then companies just paste a logo on them and sell them for 60 bucks! I own the 88 matte palette I bought on Hautelook about two years ago for $17 + $6.95 shipping. However, these palettes are now available on sale for $15 and FREE shipping!! ::Edit: A bonus that I just saw while I was purchasing is that they are returnable!! AMAZING! end edit::  I would love to buy all of them but $15 a piece adds up. haha  A little mini review on the palette I have: it is not completely matte colors, some have shimmer/satin finish. It has a variety of colors which is perfect for beginners or anyone who wants that. It also has a really great matte black which is well loved for soft eyeliner looks or just adding depth and dimension to eye looks. I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to spend so much money on quality shadows, but doesn’t want to be skimped too much on quality! haha

Listed below are the different palettes I found that are cheap and good! (don’t forget to check out the rest of their beauty products that you might be interested in)

NYX Lip Product Swatches – Jumbo Lip Pencils

Hey Everyone!

Today I am continuing my nyx lip product swatches, focusing on the jumbo lip pencils. In a previous post I swatched the Round Lipsticks, so check those out!

For reference I am NC35-40 in MAC and for Face & Body foundation I am C4. Right now I am leaning toward the end of that spectrum because I have some color from the sun.

Jumbo Lip Pencils:

Iced Coffee:

Iced Coffee is a strange color opaquely applied. It is very brown toned and I feel it doesn’t go well with my skin tone. Perhaps it might look better on dark skin or fair skin. Applied with a sheer coat however is perfect for a nude lip.

Fuchsia:

Fuchsia is not what you would expect at all! You would think it would be a bright pink but instead it is a neutral mauve. I feel this color may not suit my skin tone all that well. But I am not used to these type of mauve colors, so it may just be that.

Chaos:

Chaos is a bright barbie pink color! I think it will work for any skin tone and doesn’t make your teeth look yellow. 😀

Plush Red:

Plush Red is a gorgeous, bright red color. It doesn’t make your teeth look yellow and is a definite showstopper! Definitely recommended.

Burgundy is a dark prune-ish color. Great for the bold, dark lip, bare face look.

Makeup worn in all the pictures:

MAC Face & Body Foundation C4

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Medium

MAC Prep + Prime Loose Powder

MAC MSF natural Medium-Deep

NYX Cream blush Natural

NYC Bronzer Sunny

Maybelline Color Tattoo Bronze

L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black

I put on more powder than I would normally wear because in the photos the flashback would make me look sweaty. lol

Overall:

These jumbo lip pencils are very slippery. They are very comfortable to wear because they feel like a gloss rather than a balm or pencil. However, because of this, they easily slip all over. If you have problems with feathering this may not be worth the trouble, considering the whole point of the lip pencil is easy application and hassle-free. Like the round lipsticks, if you use these with a lip liner and blot they’re lasting power is dramatically increased. The good thing is they are easy to reapply and convenient to shove in a small purse to go out. Let me know what you guys think of these if you have them.

IT Cosmetics: Your Most Beautiful You QVC Sale

IT cosmetics your most beautiful you qvc sale

QVC has TSV, or Today’s Special Value, which is an item that they sell on sale for that one day (from 12 am to 11:59pm ET). They sell many cosmetics and this one caught my eye. Sorry this is so late but I figured I would share it!

The kit is called Your Most Beautiful You by IT Cosmetics and is on sale today for $59.96 (original price is $72.50).

It includes:

  • 1-fl oz Bye Bye Under Eye concealer (in your choice of Light, Medium, Tan or Deep)
  • 0.23-oz Hello Light luminizer cream
  • 0.003-oz Your Brows But Better pencil
  • 0.11-fl oz Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Lipgloss Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi (a sheer pretty pink flush)
  • Dual Heavenly Luxe Airbrush Foundation and Concealer Brush
  • Heavenly Luxe Pointed Precision Complexion Brush
  • Application chart

It seems like a great value for money especially since I’ve heard rave reviews of the concealer and their Bye Bye Pores Powder (not included in this kit). Right now the price is a little steep for me so, I’ll have to pass this up. Hopefully one of you readers can get it and let me know how the products are!

You have until 12 am ET tonight to decide!
