~First Impressions( and review:))~

I found that Berry Shimmer and Nude Shimmer are completely sheer on me. They will probably work better on non- pigmented lips or lighter complexion shades. But the surprise was Pink Shimmer showed up on me really great, a light creamy pink that reminds me of MAC Creme Cup. The packaging is beautiful. I'm loving the thick slick tube with rose gold accents. I'm interested in seeing what the other colors look like swatched and worn.



Disclosure: These products were sent to me for review. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are honest.

~Swatches + Review~ Fergie For Wet N' Wild Lipstick in V.I.Pink and Old School Glam.....

Hello!

I absolutely loved my last two Fergie lippie purchases in  Bebot Love and Ferguson Crest Cabernet ( Post on those HERE!!) so much and I wanted some other colors. I picked up V.I.Pink and Old School Glam.




 V.I.Pink is a icy blue based pink. It has a bit of shimmer to it but not enough to scare me away.:) Old School Glam is a reddish blue bright pink. I thought it was just red until I put it on and took pictures. This girl is pink!!

Like, I said in my previous post on these Fergie lipsticks, they are the crown jewel of the collection. The colors might be a little "done" but the quality and packaging make up for it. The texture is soft and smooth, and they glide on really nice. I know a lot of people were diving over those eyeshadows ( which miss the mark in my opinion, they could have been a really hit if the quality was better) but the Fergie lipsticks stole the show!



~Swatches + Review~ CoverGirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation in Q830/ Soft Copper.....


Hey Everyone!!

I got my hands on Cover Girl Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation in Q830/Soft Copper about two weeks ago. I decided to go with the Queen Collection formula of this Cover Girl foundation because the shades of the Queen Collection match me better. I've been using Soft Copper in all of their foundations for years.



 Tip for choosing drugstore foundations: Hold the bottle near your chin line to find the closest shade possible and check it in a mirror or your phone. If it doesn't match, TAKE IT BACK. That's what return policies are for and what drugstore foundations are running lately ( This one was $9.29), return that girl if she doesn't match to your specifications.

 Soft Copper actually matches the back of my hand which for the winter is the same color as my face.:)

~Review~

First, I will say that the shade match is perfect!! Spot on match. Second, I wasn't oily ALL DAY. For real, when I first noticed this, I was blown away! I got little "sheeny" after couple of hours, but nothing like the oil pools I normally experience. I love the pump action that the foundation is in. I wish more companies would do that, even some of the higher end brands. The only negative I will say it that the foundation is a light to medium coverage. I couldn't get it to build to full, which I what I prefer.  I'm interested in seeing how this foundation will work in the summer. Maybe I'll do an update!!!



Have you seen or do own the the new Cover Girl All Day Flawless Foundation? The beauty girls on the internet are loving it, well at least on my twitter timeline. LOL! Let me know!
