Maybelline The Nudes Palette Review + Swatches + Tutorial

Monday, June 30, 2014
I was over the moon when I found out that the drugstore was getting a legitimate nude makeup palette! Not some dinky thing with tiny pans, or only four shades, but a real, bonafide neutral palette! My grabby hands went straight to the Maybelline displays as soon as I got into Ulta and this thing quickly found its way into my makeup stash.

The palette comes with 10 eyeshadows, 5 of which are matte (!!!), and a pretty decent array of shades. 

I decided to throw a quick look together using a few of my favorite shades in the palette.

While I think it is super awesome that there is a legitimate palette available at the drugstore, I didn't let the excitement cloud my judgement and that kind of lead to a really hard come down with this dude...

You'll see why.

Maybelline Leather Color Tattoo Collection Swatches

Saturday, June 28, 2014
I've always thought that the Color Tattoo line needed more mattes and more neutrals, and it seems like Maybelline has answered my prayers! Welcome to the brand new, (nearly) all matte Leather addition to the permanent line!

There is only one shimmer in the 5 shade addition. Right now, these babies seem to be in product displays in most stores, but my super sneaky Fred Meyer had stocked extras in the permanent display where a few other discontinued shades used to be.

Buy This, Not That: Urban Decay Primer Potion and Milani Eyeshadow Primer

Unlike my last Buy This, Not That post, I actually like both of the high-end and drugstore products - it is just a matter of price difference here.  More info, a comparison, and an ingredient analysis after the jump!

e.l.f HD Blush in Superstar Review + Swatch

I know, I know... I'm incredibly behind on the times when it comes to these absolute gems from e.l.f. In my defense, up until recently, my little valley town was devoid of most mass-retailers (because grumpy, middle aged white folk like to keep "trashy" places like malls and WalMart out of their little safehaven). I've gotta say that holding off on this $3 little ditty was worth the wait!
