Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush in Bittersweet

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.

January Favorites

IMG_0410

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.

Milani Rose Powder Blush: Review + Swatches

IMG_0625

Hellooo my beautiful blushing ladies
Milani not only came out with new Matte Lipsticks (check out my review here), but they also re-released three shades of the previously limited addition Rose Powder Blushes into the permanent collection. Romantic Rose, Tea Rose, and Coral Cove have been released into permanent glory. I purchased all three because I have a makeup hoarding problem… They come in the standard gold Milani packaging with a transparent top. Through the transparent lid you can see that the blushes have been sculpted into the shape of beautiful rose. How cool is that (I’m a sucker for gimmicks).

I have never really been a fan of cream blushes. I liked the idea of a cream blush, but they never seem to work for me. Most of the cream blushes I have tried have done one of two things. First they have applied chalky and get patchy after a short amount of time. The second problem I have with cream blushes is that they turn me into a greasy monkey and I don’t even have oily skin. So when I saw the Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm I thought maybe these are the ones. Especially after the Cheek Pop Blushes, which were so wonderful, I had extremely high hopes for these cream blushes.
