Colourpop Summer Collection: Swatches + Mini Review

IMG_2862

Colourpop is quickly becoming one of my go-to makeup brands. If you are not familiar with Colourpop, they are an online only makeup brand based out of Los Angeles that JUST had their first birthday.  They are one of the fastest up and comers due to the uniqueness and quality of their products.  Their eye shadows, lippie stix, and lip pencils are $5 a piece and all blushes, bronzers, and highlighters and $8 apiece (aka dang affordable). I recently went a little crazy and hauled some things from their summer collection, as well as a few new permanent releases.  I have tried most of them and I love them.  Here are some of the goodies I got.

Lorac Pro Contour Palette: Review + Swatches

IMG_2803

Are you tired of me reviewing contour palettes yet?  Too bad here is another.  Lorac is about to Launch their Lorac Pro Contour Palette.  I was fortunate to get my hands on one before the official release. This palette has three contour shades, three highlight shades, and a synthetic contour brush.  The packaging is very sleek, slim and similar to the Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Palettes.    This is a very similar set up to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, the Kat Vond D Shade of light Palette, and The Nyx Highlight and Contour Pro Kit (which I recently reviewed).

IMG_2358

I was so excited to hear that Urban Decay was releasing a blush line. The Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour powder blush line has twelve shades with some pretty scandalous names (umm quickie?!). I knew I wanted to pick up one of these blushes with a Sephora gift card my husband and daughter got me for Mothers (awwww). Bittersweet is a straight up purple blush. I have nothing like Bittersweet in my collection and I was really drawn to the color so in my collection it went.

Jamberry Nail Wrap Review

nail wrap

I love having my nails done. There is nothing like having a well manicured nail to make me feel feminine and put together. However nail polish chips. Like a lot. Sometimes I will do my nails and it is chipping within 24 hours of the initial application. So when I started hearing about Jamberry wraps I was definitely curious. There were all these cute options, that were supposed to be easy to apply and long lasting. It sounded pretty awesome. I had a few friends that were selling Jamberry and I always considered contacting them to give it a try, but it wasn’t until my friend Angie contacted that I finally made the move to give them a try.

There is a ton of hype surrounding the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a sample from Ulta last week. The Mascara is due to launch this Friday. I went to Ulta today and the place was plastered in Benefit Roller Lash Posters. Benefit is promoting the crap out of this Mascara so I have got me some high expectations people.

Hello my beautiful friends! My name is Addie and I am an eye shadow palette addict.

When I saw this beautiful bugger in person I knew it had to be mine. I immediately snatched it up to add to my embarrassingly large eye shadow palette collection.

January Favorites

I have a confession. I have spent the past month binge watching Gilmore Girls. Every free second I get I am pretty much watching Gilmore Girls. This has made for an unproductive month. I have now completed all seven seasons (still not sure how I feel about it all) and am ready to attempt to be a little more productive. So today I sit here to tell you January was a pretty good month for beauty products. I have come across some goodies that I am super excited to share with all you other addicts out there.

Wet N Wild Fergie Matte Lip Color: Review + Swatches

IMG_0508

I was in the drugstore getting something I needed like milk or shampoo when I ran into new Wet N Wild products. I like Wet N Wild they are cheap and, for the most part, pretty decent products. I saw the new Wet N Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Colors and I was pretty excited. Matte Lips are so in and it appeared that they had some very beautiful colors. I picked up four of these guys.
