Review and Swatches of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo metal eyeshadows

(more photo's below close up photo's and swatches)
 As you can see, my camera is not the best at capturing photos, but I had to post these up so that you can get an idea of how these new metal shadows appear.  I love all of them except for the Electric blue color. It goes on a little patchy, and once it dries, it is not really a metallic color, but more of just a satin look.

The colors are as follows:
55- Inked in Pink
60- Silver Strike
65- Gold Rush
70- Barely Branded
75- Electric Blue

In my opinion, these would be a great addition to your collection if you, like me, are addicted to the color tattoo's.  I am not sure, but it seems like some of the colors are a different formula (some are more silky some are drastically more dry) but overall, I have to say that I love them

If I were to recommend any of the colors, my two favorites are Gold Rush and Barely Branded. OMG! They are really great. I like barely branded more than barely beige :)

The display that I found these at was at Wal-Mart. It was a 3 sided display with the color tattoo's on one side, the new The Rocket mascara by Maybelline, and then the new Vivid lipsticks also by Maybelline.
I was able to get these for $4.97 even though they scanned at $5.97 (the display was marked cheaper so they adjusted the price) I was excited.

Are you going to pick any of these up? What do you think about them?

Do share your thoughts.

Thanks for reading.

Review and Swatches of Bare Minerals 8.0 The Star Treatment eyeshadow palette

Hey Everyone.
I have recently made my first of many bare minerals purchases. I was in Sephora, walking around swatching all the new palette's that I can find, and here was this little shiny beauty just sitting there in all it's glory saying "swatch me, you know you want me". Yep, this palette is that good.
The colors are oh so very buttery and soft but not really any fallout. All of the shadows are either satin, metallic, or shimmery (except for the black, it's matte with some golden glitter)
The pigmentation of these shadows is outstanding to say the least.
I will post a couple pictures of the palette, some swatches and a quick look that I created using the palette.

Check out my live review of the palette here: Review of the star treatment 8.0 bare minerals palette

If you have any questions, please leave me a response.

Do you have this palette? If so, what do you think of it?

Here is a picture of my palette

Here are some swatches and a look I created using the palette:

Forever 21 Love and Beauty 12 eyeshadow palette review and swatches

I have raved and raved about these eyeshadow's before from the Love and Beauty line that is carried at Forever 21 and on their website www.forever21.com, so here is another palette from their collection that I am totally impressed by. If you haven't see my review's you should really check out my youtube page and see all the great reviews I have posted thus far.  Oh yeah.... they are cruelty free :)
Here is another really great palette for the price from this line. $5.80 is the price point, and it's worth every penny.  The pigmentation on these shades is very good ( a couple of the shades are a little "soft" but I can work with that for the price).  You just can't go wrong with these palette's. They have lots of color options, and they are easy to blend and are quite pigmented.

Milani Limited Edition True Love trio True Romance and single shadows in Caramel Brown and Brown Stone

Here is a quick posting about the Milani limited edition True Love trio in the color True Romance
I purchased this trio from the milani webiste.. here is a link to the trio in case you are interested in picking it up for yourself  http://www.milanicosmetics.com/p-139-pure-love-eyeshadow-trio.aspx

These eyeshadows are very pigmented. I love the highlight shade. It's a really unique grey(ish) iridescent color that is really pretty. It's great for a brow highlight and inner corner highlight

I also picked up 2 of the single shadows.
Brown Stone and Caramel Brown.  The pigmentation on these colors are really great quality. I love the Caramel Brown shade, It's a beautiful metallic shade. It's very similar to half baked from the urban decay naked palette (just not as dark)

These shadows were $5.99 each

Here is a link to the powder eyeshadows
there are several colors to choose from ( I saw a posting on the black shadow and it was SUPER pigmented)


Check out my youtube video review on these shades

New L'oreal Color Riche quad's Rose for Romance and So Over It.

Have you seen the new L'oreal Color Riche quad's? I picked up a couple of them to try and I must say.. these are some pretty nice little quad's. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and the staying power is pretty good. (I always use a primer)
I picked up two of the palette's from Walgreens recently #105 rose for romance and #817 so over it

Check out my youtube video for a review on each palette  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Egvaa3vCeuU
and  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W1oWfAlQKw

Rose for romance has a really pretty rose/pink metallic color as the main color, then it has a shimmering metallic pink as the highlight shade, a mid-toned taupe/purple shade that can be used as a crease color or even an all over lid color and then a dark jade/black sparkle as the outer V shade.

So Over It- It has a really amazing metallic golden bronze shade as the main color, a golden iridescent highlight shade,  a duochrome reddish/brown shade and a super dark burgandy that almost appears dark brown. I know I am not much on describing these colors, but you can check out my review on my youtube channel for swatches and my review.
Overall, I would give these palette's an 8 out of 10 just taking 2 points off for the soft shadows (tend to have fallout) This can easily be cleaned up though.. So don't be scared of them. The color pay off is well worth the hassle.

Urban Decay Naked Palette DUPE! Quo back to basics palette

Anyone looking for an affordable dupe for the UD Naked Palette?  My friend from Youtube (Joanne) sent me this amazing limited edition palette from the brand Quo. It's a drugstore brand sold in Canada.
The price of the palette for you folks living over the pond is CAD25 versus the UD Naked Palette coming in at a whopping CAD60.

If you have the chance to get this palette, I would highly suggest picking it up. It's AMAZING
I think for as close as these two palette's are, it would make sense to save your money and purchase the Quo palette instead. (Unless you just have the have the UD palette) It's okay, I completely understand. But.. for those of you who are on a beauty budget, this is the way to go.

A full review of the palette is on my youtube channel. click the link here for the review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pw-9bqdhSI
