September 2014 Favorites!

Hello everyone! I am so sorry this is a day late, but these are my beauty faves from the month of September! I really started embracing Fall makeup trends this month, which was a lot of fun! I hope you all had a wonderful month. 

My first favorite is probably an obvious one! I’ve been absolutely obsessed with the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette this month! I love how versatile it is! 

I got this Hikari Lipstick in Cabernet in this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag, and I’ve been using it a ton!

I don’t know why I waited so long to buy this, because it’s amazing! This is the OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Lydia. I love this so much more than the Lydia Lip Tar, and I love that it can be used on the eyes, lips, and face!

This Cherry Apple Blush was part of Sigma’s Limited Edition Creme De Couture Collection about a year ago, and for some reason I keep reaching for it now! I think it’s a beautiful color that works well for Fall without giving up brightness. 

This Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light is the perfect Fall highlight color for me. It gives your face a beautiful warm and glowy look. 

The next thing I’ve been loving is the Elf HD Undereye Setting Powder. This works so beautifully for setting undereye concealer and brights so much light to the eye area. I love it!

I got this little sample of Benefit’s Fake Up Concealer in Light and for some reason I didn’t think I would like it, but I actually love it! It works beautifully under the eyes, especially if you have dry skin, and it’s a good medium coverage, which I like. 

The next thing I’ve been using a lot is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette. While I prefer the original Naked Basics Palette comparatively, I still love this one and I’ve been using it quite a bit this month. 

This Too Faced Milk Chocolate Bronzer has been a favorite of mine for a while, and recently I keep reaching for it. It’s gorgeous, especially on fair skin!

My last favorite of the month is a classic lipstick shade by Mac- Rebel. It’s simply stunning and it’s a beautiful Fall color! I love it!

That’s it for my September Favorites! What were your favorites this month?

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette Review and Swatches!

image

Hey everyone! Today I am so excited to review the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette! While I do not have the original Vice, I have the Vice 2 and I love it, although I think the Vice 3 is my favorite!

This is a limited edition palette from Urban Decay, and it is $60. You’re getting 20 eyeshadows, a makeup bag that fits the Vice 3, and a double ended brush. I think this is a good value, and these eyeshadows are amazing. 

Without further adieu, here are the swatches!

Mac Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Review and Swatches!

image

Hello! Today I’ll be reviewing the Mac Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick! I’ll admit, when I first saw this lipstick I thought it was hideous, but then I saw NikkieTutorials do a look with this and I knew I had to have it. Since I got this, I’ve been pretty obsessed with this, and if you’re adventurous with lip colors, I think you should definitely pick this up. 

First of all, the packaging is amazing. It’s so beautiful!! 

image

Here is what the lipstick looks like. The color is hard to describe. It’s kind of a metallic pewter with some bronze undertones. 

The formula and frosty quality makes it a little hard to apply evenly, but besides that I really love this shade. 

I will definitely be using this a lot in the coming months. 

Are you going to try Viva Glam Rihanna 2? Let me know!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette Review and Swatches!

image

Hello! I am so excited to review the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette for you! I was very excited when I heard that Urban Decay was releasing a second Naked Basics Palette because the original Naked Basics Palette is one that I cannot live without! I use the original one in almost every makeup look I do, and it’s perfect for travel. 

Let’s take a look at the Naked 2 Basics!

image

Here are the swatches of the Naked 2 Basics. Skimp, Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone.

This palette is gorgeous. It’s definitely cooler-toned than the original Naked Basics, but I like that. I also love that they have given us a brownish charcoal color instead of the black in the Naked Basics. The only shade I’m not crazy about is Stark, mostly because I do not really know what to do with it. For my skin tone it’s not light enough to be a highlight or dark enough to be a transition shade, so I haven’t really found much use for it in my beauty routine. 

image

Here is a look at Naked Basics vs Naked 2 Basics. 

Overall, I really like this palette. I do recommend it and I’m glad to have it in my collection. However, I like the original Naked Basics Palette better. I find myself reaching for the first over the second pretty frequently, but I still do think that Naked 2 Basics has filled some gaps of what the original was missing. 

I hope this review helped! If you have any questions, let me know!

Wet n’ Wild Fall 2014 Megalast Lipsticks Review and Swatches!

image

Hello! Wet n’ Wild has released four limited edition Matte Megalast lipsticks for Fall 2014, which I was so excited about! These are four beautiful and bold Fall colors that I think everyone will love!

These lipsticks are pretty similar in formula to the other Megalast lipsticks, only these comes in a sleek matte tube, which I absolutely adore! I wish all of the Megalasts would be packaged this way! 

image

Sweet Cream is a gorgeous deep nude that is perfect for Fall. I can definitely see this working on a wide range of skin tones, which surprised me at first. If you love nude lips but want to make them more Fall appropriate, this is definitely a shade for you.

image

This is Sunset Siren. I wouldn’t typically think of this as a Fall shade, but somehow it works. Sunset Siren is a stunning bright warm red. 

image

Urban Night is a gorgeous Burgundy shade which is perfect for Fall and Winter. I am so happy to have it in my collection, and it will get a lot of use these next few months! 

image

Bordeaux Boulevard is a beautiful deep raisin plum. It’s deep and dark without being unwearable. I love it! 

I would definitely say these are worth picking up. They are absolutely gorgeous and the Megalast Lipstick formula is super long wearing, which makes it much less time consuming than other bold lips! 

Wet n’ Wild has done a fabulous job with this collection!
