Jesse's Girl Mineralized Baked Powder Eye Shadow (Rosemary Frost): Review & Swatches

This eyeshadow was a gift from one of my friends, 
and at first glance I thought I wouldn't like it. 
It is a domed baked eyeshadow, with different color veining. 
It is in the color "rosemary frost"
It looks like a blue toned purple, in the pan.
It is actually a lilac/ lavender light purple. It has a sheen and small glitters.
  • Sheer color
  • Great over a base or with a fix+ type enhancer
  • Not chalky but not creamy, overall dry texture
It is an okay product, but nothing super special.

L'Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Perpetual Peach: Review & Swatches

I have been going back and forth with my opinions on this products, but I am here now to give you my opinions. This is from a newer line of lipsticks from L'oreal and it retails for around $8 (I think).
The cap is tinted to be similar to the actual lipstick color.
Sheer swatch.
Layered swatch.
Lip swatch.
  • Shimmer almost frost finish
  • Makes lips look fuller due to the the shimmer
  • Not extremely long wearing, has an average wear time
  • Not the standard L'oreal lipstick scent, it has little to no scent at all
  • I don't reach for it often, but I do really like it when I wear it
  • Since it is not matte it can disguise dryness on your lips
  • I love wearing this lipstick with a peachy blush, and dark green or neutral brown toned eyeshadows

Jordana FabuLiner: Review & Swatch

We have all heard of the stila stay all day liquid liner, and the Kat Von D liquid liner.  I was hoping this ~$3 liner would be a dupe. 
Its in a pretty standard tube with standard packaging.
It just says liquid liner meaning it is not waterproof.
It has a wide and thick tip that does not bend easily, you can't drag while lining you have to set it on its side and press it on. 

  • Swatches nice and black. 
  • Cap clicks closed
  • The tip is to hard to use on eyes unless in a certain technique by "stamping"
  • Very affordable
  • Not waterproof
Overall, I say pass on this. Splurge a bit for a more high end one like stila. The more expensive ones have a finer tip that doesn't tug on the eyes, and they are usually waterproof. I am not a pro at using liquid liner, but especially for beginners I ind that this just makes it more difficult.

Milani Uptown Mauve Color Statement Lipstick: Review+Swatches

Lipstick is an amazing thing, and when done right it is fabulous! I have heard so many good things about these Milani lipsticks. I picked this up a few weeks ago, and it made it into my top 5 lipsticks post on Instagram(budgetmakeupbeauty). This line of lipsticks only cost around $5 each, and as  for the quality it is hard to believe!

Layered swatch
Leaves a stain when removed

(Ignore my skin, whatever foundation I was testing made my skin look very dry)
  • Very long lasting, even stains the lips
  • Unique purple-pink
  • A non season related color
  • Lux gold packaging
  • No bad things to say, other than can be hard to locate this brand(for me)

Maybelline Vintage Plum Color Tattoo: Review and Swatch

I'm finally going to get back into the blogging spin of things, and that means posting reviews with old images in my old background. Because of this I have had this Maybelline color tattoo for quite a while now, I bought it the first time I saw it new in store.
It is part of the leather line.
Above shows swirled together, and below is a swatch.
It is a dove grey type color with a soft hint of purple. 
By the name "vintage plum" I was expecting a darker purple, 
but I guess it means vintage as in washed out.
  • Matte, no shimmer, formula
  • Long lasting eyeshadow base, or lid color
  • Looks nice topped with purples or smokey colors
  • It is permanent
  • Affordable price tag
