Wet n Wild Ultimate Expressions

I've heard some good reviews on YouTube about Wet n Wild's Ultimate Expressions eye palette, so I decided to snag a couple at my local Walgreens. In one particular review, the individual swatched some of the Paradise Cove colors over an eye base (which is what I've done) & was amazed at the level of pigmentation in a drugstore product.

Well, I've tried this & I really like it! For a drugstore product the pigmentation is great, as you can see in the swatches. Unfortunately, the swatches don't really showcase the pretty shimmer & texture very well. But believe me when I say that these colors are very pretty & I love them! They're about 5 bucks a piece, unless you get a BOGO deal like I did. Very pretty!

Rimmel Colour Mousse Eyeshadow

Ooo, these colors look so gorgeous, I want to try them! Has anyone tried these, what did you think? I was watching MakeupGeekTV's Bourjois cream/liquid shadows review & one of her viewers mentioned these Rimmel shadows as being really good, so I'm curious.

e.l.f. shimmering facial whip

I've been wanting to try elf's shimmering facial whip for awhile now, but for a little while it looked like they were phasing it out. They weren't restocking colors that had gone out of stock & I was bummed because some of the colors I wanted were gone.

Well here's some happy news, it looks like they're going to keep the facial whip after all! They've restocked the colors I want, so maybe I'll get to try this soon, hopefully. Maybe this is old news, I don't know, but I'm sure happy about it!

Splash Cosmetics

I've recently discovered a cosmetics company called Splash Cosmetics. Did you know that they make all over face pigments too? These look very interesting & promising, not to mention that at only $5 a pop they're very inexpensive. Has anyone tried these?

NYX Cosmetics - Preview

It's always fun to find out about new or soon-to-be-released products, don't you think? Naturally! Well, here's a preview of some products by NYX Cosmetics that have yet to be released. I'm most excited about the lipstick. In 96 colors, there should be something for most everyone. Perhaps I'll find my perfect red lippy after all!
