What do you think of the new Kat Vond D Starry Eyes Makeup Set? I love how the packaging is always so pretty for the Kat Von D products and I love how she sticks to her roots and decorates them with tattoo art. 
I think it is a cute little set. I'm more excited about the pencil set myself, so I will probably skip this one. However if you are looking for a nice eyeshadow set, Kat Von D is know for having some great shadows and this set is a great value for all the colors you are getting, plus the lip products. If any one gets the Kat Von D Starry Eyes Makeup Set and has swatches, let me know. I'd be interesting in seeing how the shadows turn out!

ELF Mineral Facial Cleanser - ELF Skin Care?? New Spring 2012

Hey everyone! ELF has just put up a new product in their mineral line called the Mineral Facial Cleanser! Is ELF going to create an entire skin-care line? That's pretty cool if they do create a line. My guess is they may be testing the waters with this product and see how it goes. 

ELF Mineral Facial Cleanser 

Here's some information on the new ELF Mineral Face Cleanser! 

  • "Indulge your skin in rich cleansing moisture for a noticeably brighter and smooth complexion. The water-activated, powder based cleanser works to clean and exfoliate the skin for a beautiful healthy glow. Infused with active minerals and skin nourishing ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Jojoba Avocado and Vitamin E, this gentle and calming cleanser revitalizes skin for a younger looking feel. " 

  • To use, "Moisten your hands and face with water then pour a small amount of the cleanser powder onto hands. Activate by rubbing hands together to create a light lather. Gently massage over the face and neck and rinse thoroughly. Use morning and night or as often as desired."

So apparently this is somewhat of a powder and you add water to it to turn it into a cleanser. This could have some benefits because you could add as much or as little cleanser as you want. Dilute it a little to make it last longer. It also would make a good traveling face wash because you could empty a little of the powder into a baggie and take it with you on your vacation. 

As of right now, you can view the product, here, but it still says unavailable at the moment (2/9/12). It retails for $8, but you can always find coupons for sometimes $5 off $10 or 50% off and other random amounts. 

What do you think about the ELF Facial Cleanser? Willl you be picking it up when it comes out? I'm very interested in trying this and seeing how it works. Leave any comments you have below!

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick Swatches, Pictures, Review

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj releases on Febrary 15th, 2012 in stores. All proceeds goes to the AIDS funds as usual, so be sure to pick this up and donate to the cause. 

Below are swatches of Viva Glam Nicki and some pictures on the lips as well. 

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick Swatch 

Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick Swatches, Pictures 
Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick Swatch

As you can see in the picture above, Viva Glam Nicki is a light to medium pink with coral leans. It is a warm pink, very nice for spring and summer and is a shade almost anyone will be able to wear. In comparison to Viva Glam Gaga, this shade is much warmer and more coral, a little less bright, and not nearly as glossy. Viva Glam Nicki is Satin finish, so it is semi matte, whereas Gaga is a luster, so Gaga is much more shiny and glossy. I will probably do a side-by-side swatch comparison of the two as well. 

Also, in comparison to the new Shop MAC Cook MAC, Viva Glam Nicki is much warmer than Naughty Saute, it isn't as coral as Watch Me Sizzle. 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of Viva Glam Nicki!

Shop Mac Cook Mac Lipstick Swatches, Pictures, Review - Naughty Saute, Dish It Up, Runway Red

Hey everyone! Here are a few swatches of the new lipsticks from the Shop Mac Cook Mac Collection, Releasing on February 9th, 2012 in the US. 

Below is a swatch and pictures of Naughty Saute, Dish It Up, And Runway Red. 

MAC Naughty Saute, MAC Dish It Up, MAC Runway Red

MAC Naughty Saute, MAC Dish It Up, MAC Runway Red - Mac Shop Mac Cook Mac Swatches
As usual the colors differ from MAC's own description and from swatches other bloggers gave. I make sure that mine show up real to life in the photos I give. Nothing is worse than finding a swatch, ordering the product, and having it come in looking nothing like the pictures you seen. I don't know.. maybe the lipstick shades vary somewhat or they just show up on my lips way different than everyone else.. Anyway,  So here are the real descriptions. 

MAC Naughty Saute Swatch

Naughty Saute - This is a light blue pink. It's not extremely bright, in no way does is it as bright as pepto like MAC says. This is my favorite of the group because I like cool toned pinks the most of any shade. I think it is a more blue-toned version of viva glam gaga and way less bright than viva gaga. I also think this is a less blue and less bright version of Saint Germain. If you love Saint Germain and perhaps find it a little too unwearable, Naughty Saute may be the right choice for you. It is a cremesheen so you can actually make it even less bright than it appears on my swatch. It is very glossy and does have shimmers in it, but the glossy effect makes the shimmers less noticeable. I went over my hand about five times to get this level of pink in the hand swatch.  I will probably do a comparison to Viva Glam Gaga, Saint Germain and a few other pinks later : ) 

MAC Dish It Up Swatch 

Dish It Up appears on most bloggers swatches as a very purple-toned pink, on the cool side. I have to say, in real life, it's not quite as cool toned as others are showing. While it does lean to the cool-tone, it almost looks more neutral to warm in some lights. The swatch above shows it as more of cool, mid pink with a kiss of berry and a touch of red. Again it's more cool in the swatch and a bit more warm on the lips. I was hoping it was more purple and cool like others hand shown, I'm a bit disappointed

MAC Runway Red 

Runway Red is a slightly blue-toned red. I think it looks more like a neutral red on my lips, but more cool-toned when swatched on the hand. This has a satin finish, so it's not quite matte, but not glossy at all either. If you want a red that's not too warm and not too cool, Runway Red is a good choice. For some reason the texture on Runway isn't as smooth and is in a way patchy. I was hoping it'd be a bit more pigmented, because it looks almost like a berry red on my lips. 

Shop MAC Cook Mac Lipsticks, Naughty Saute, Dish It Up, Runway Red

Unfortunately Watch Me Simmer and Quick Sizzle were out of stock, but I plan on going super early to the MAC booth on the 9th to see if I can get them, so come back for those swatches soon!! 

Here's a bonus picture with a swatch of Viva Glam Nicki Minaj, which I will posting right after this!!

NYX Stick Blush Picture & Overview - New NYX Products for Spring 2012

NYX has released several new products for spring 2012. One of their newest additions is the NYX Stick Blush, which comes in eight beautiful shades.
Nyx says, "Add a touch of color with our creamy and extremely pigmented Stick Blush! Available in eight rich shades! Apply and receive the perfect glow every day!"
NYX Stick Blush, Magnolia & Orchid

Since NYX has these listed as a multi-use products, I'm going to guess that you could use these as a lip tint as well. Most stick blushes can be used on various parts of the face. I have to say I'm excited to try these. I've always liked cream blushes better than powder blushes because they look much more natural finish and blend better into the skin. 
Nyx also lists these blushes as hydrating, so they may or may not be good for oily skin. This first ingrediant listed for these is mineral oils, so that does raise a red flag for those prone to breakouts or with oily skin. But honestly, we don't even know if they actually hydrate yet or if they would be a problem. I plan on trying a couple and I do have oily/combo skin, so I'll let you know how they wear for me. 

  • Magnolia
  • Pink Lotus
  • Hibiscus
  • Tulip
  • Tea Rose
  • Orchid
  • Water Lily
  • Pink Poppy
These are available at Ulta and on the Nyxcosmetics website for only $6.
INGREDIENTS: White Mineral Oil, 2-Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polybutene, Squalane, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Vitamin E, Beeswax, Ozokerite, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax, Paraffin Wax/ Microcrystalline Wax, Phenoxyethanol/ Methylparaben/ N-Butylparaben/ Ethylparaben/ Propylparaben/ Isobutylparaben, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate.

Shop Mac Cook Mac Cremeblend Blush Pictures, Overview - Optimistic Orange, Florida, Restores Dazzle

Shop Mac Cook Mac releases February 9th 2012 in the US, which consists of several new items from lipsticks, to eyeshadows, to blushes and mascaras. Here's a look at the pictures and overview of the CremeBlend Blushes from this new collection!

Shop MAC Cook MAC Cremeblend Blush $20
  • Optimistic Orange Bright coral
  • Florida Bright coral
  • Restores Dazzle! Rich plum
Shop MAC Cook MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed $23
  • Medium Soft creamy beige
  • Dark Deep caramel



What do you think of the new shop mac cook mac creamblend blushes and studio creamblend powders? I think I'll probably pass on these. While the creamblend blushes look pretty, they aren't anything unique and the creamblend powders will be too dark for my fair skin. I do want to see a swatch of Florida, though.

Shop Mac Cook Mac Kissable Lipcolour Pictures, Overview - ( Flaunting It, So Vain, Scan-Delicous, Woo Me, Enchantee )

MAC is releasing the Shop, Shop, Shop - Cook, Cook, Cook, Collection on February 9th in the US. This is a very large collection consisting of metallic pigments, lipsticks, lip colours and so much more. I'm separating these out into individual posts since there is so much to talk about. This post is about the liquid lipcolours. There are 5 shades, all pinks/corals/mauves. Here's a look at the pictures and some shade descriptions!

Shop MAC Cook MAC Kissable Lipcolour $19 US
  • Flaunting It  - Grey mauve
  • So Vain - Muted dirty coral
  • Scan-delicious - Blue fuchsia
  • Woo Me - Light pinky nude
  • Enchantée - Light blue pink





So what do you think of the new Shop Mac Cook Mac lipcolours? I'm happy for all the pinks because I wear pinks probably 90% of the time during spring and summer, sometimes I do go for nudes, but my lips are super pigmented, like almost red on their own, so pinks look like nudes on me as well a lot of times. I tend to go for the blue-toned pinks so they cool down my already brightly colored lips. I missed out on Enchantee before, so glad to see it back, may have to pick this one up. 

Which colors do you like the best? Will you be getting any? Is there a color missing you wish they would have promoted? I think they are missing a bright coral since they do have a coral lipstick with this collection it'd make sense to promo a liquid coral as well. 

Thanks for reading!
