     Good day, lovelies!  Here is my second attempt at an eyeshadow pictorial. 😄 When I think way back to the beginning of my journey with makeup, I remember the L'Oreal Infallibles being the first big girl shadows I ever got into. For some people, the brand that started that journey was MAC. For others, it was Wet 'n' Wild. Urban Decay. Ben Nye.
     These shadows from L'Oreal are unique in that their texture makes it that much easier for a 2-second application with no brush, just the phalanges on my hand are the only tools necessary, if I'm just using one color. However, there were a couple Infallibles used in this eye tutorial, so I find a good blending brush to be essential.

A Review: NYX Powder Blush in 'Peach'

Review: NYX Powder Blush in 'Peach'
     Hello lovelies!  I had initially planned to post one, roundup compilation review of the shades of NYX powder blushes I currently own, however this one is special enough that I feel it deserves its own post. Of all the blushes I own from different companies and price points, there are only two  blushes that I can say with certainty are the most loved and most used in my collection. Ladies and gents, NYX Peach is one of those blushes.
     For whatever reason this is called peach, is a mystery to me. It is definitely a matte soft pale pink that leans slightly warm.

Review & Swatches: Wet 'n' Wild Fergie Collection Velvet Matte Lip Color

     It has come to my attention that 2015 is the 'Year of the Matte Lip' and now Wet 'n' Wild, the leading player in drugstore beauty brands at the moment, has launched a new product in their Fergie line, which they call their Velvet Matte Lip Colors. There are a total of 9 shades in this collection, and this product is a permanent addition to the line, retailing for $3.49 for .11 oz. of product. Some may think that's a bit overpriced for Wet 'n' Wild, and I would have to agree in some respects.

     We're not beating around the bush here:  Wet 'n' Wild's regular line of lip products is where it's at, in terms of formula/color selection, but the lip products in their Fergie collection? Eh, not really what I would call strong points of the brand or anything to write home about in the first place, and these are no exception when it comes to missing the mark of being Fergalicious.....keep reading if you would like to find out why!
