~FOTD~ City Color Cosmetics Eye Shadow Palette in Dark Room + Urban Decay Nude Palette Comparison.......

Monday, June 04, 2012

 Remember I told ya'll I would do a FOTD with the City Color Cosmetics palette in Dark Room soon. Welp, "soon" was the next day. LOL!

I love LOVE a neutral palette. Dark Room was right up my alley and not a bad price ($3.99 at Rite-Aid)

 One thing I did notice was the "similarities" in color PLACEMENT in Dark Room and my Urban Decay Nude Palette. I did not say DUPE, mmkay... let's discuss....:)

No swatches because I don't consider Dark Room a "dupe" but it is reminiscent of the Nude Palette for a lower price. Check out the color placement from light to dark and the last three shades.

 This is a full face with the Dark Room palette....
 I thought the color payoff was nice, especially in the deeper shades and the lighter outer shades but the two of the middle colors needed alot of building.
 I like it!!:) Now I want the other three palettes that I saw of these on the display.

~Summer 2012 Beauty~ May Beauty Favorites.....

*Gasp!!* I have May Beauty Favorites! The funny thing is...I love watching and checking other bloggers and vloggers favorites but I can't seem to get mine together month to month. LOL!

Nails: I'm loving Revlon Expert Shapers. I bought two of these at a yard sale for a $1, still in the packaging. They shape really easy and quick and leave a smooth edge to the nail.

I'm also loving Avon Nail Experts Adhesive Base Coat, another brand new yard sale find. Its reminiscent of CND Sticky and less of the price of Sticky.
Face: I'm "late boots" when it comes to MAC Fix +...loving it on my E.L.F.  Studio Powder Brush to apply my liquid foundation.Its the perfect trio for  perfect coverage.
Face: I hunted down Wet N' Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana like a hawk! Amazing illuminator for the top of the cheekbones for a great price ( $2.99).

Even though I've only had my Philosophy Mineral Blush Duo in Healthy/Happy for less than two weeks, all three products are create a gorgeous cheek!!
Skin and Lips: I'm loving Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. They are giving my Big Lots found wipes a run for their money! In my opinion and experience, sensitive skin products work wonders on oily and acne prone skin.

I'm back on my EOS balms...they are just great for layering under any gloss or lipstick you wear. EOS balm and one of my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains ( pictured Cherish) are working it out this early summer season!!
