DiorShow Liner Waterproof Review, Pictures, and Swatches

Hey guys! I'm here today with a review of DiorShow Liner Waterproof in Plum. This is a pencil eyeliner that has a really creamy formula with great color payoff. And since it's waterproof, it doesn't fade. At all. The only way to get this liner off is with makeup remover. I really like that about it because I know my liner won't fade. One of my favorite favorite things about this product is that even though it is a retractable pencil, it has a sharpener on the other end, just so you can keep the point of the liner sharp and precise. And it doesn't waste a ton of product like some sharpeners like that do. The product just glides on and doesn't skip and I can line my upper lash line in 2 swipes. Seriously! Great color payoff also. Plum is a dark grape color with no shimmer, very matte. And when you apply it, you can smudge it quickly but when it dries, it is not going to move. I love this liner and would love to try more colors. I probably will buy the dark brown one next. I think it is definitely worth the price tag. If you would like to purchase this product you can here for $29.

Diorshow Mascara Review and Pictures

Hey guys! I'm here today with a review of Diorshow mascara in black, which is one of Dior's most popular mascara. I've heard many amazing things about this product and am always looking for the next great mascara. The brush is enormous, a lot bigger than your run of the mill mascara. But I really like that because I feel it really coats each lash. Every time I pull it out of the tube it has a glob of product on the end of the wand, so I have to wipe it off on the tube, but that's no biggy. The formula is not too wet, but not too dry. It's the perfect middle. It curls my lashes and gives them volume and length. I don't know why I've waited so long to try this product. It doesn't even flake off during the day. I seriously have no complaints on this mascara. It is worth every single penny. I urge you to give it a go. If you would like to purchase it, you can here for $25.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Venus Lure Lip Balm Review, Pictures, & Swatches

Hey guys! Long time, no see. I'm here today to review Sephora's + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Lip Balm in Radiant Orchard. Each year they team up together and release a slew of new beauty products centered around the color of the year. I'm a little late to the game, but this years color is Radiant Orchard. I bought this on its own a few weeks ago but it seems like they no longer sell it by itself, but it is still available it the set with all the other beauty products and luckily for you, since I waited so long, it's on sell! I'll give you the link after the review. So onto the product. It looks like a regular lipstick when you open it, but when you apply it to your lips it feels like a lipbalm and if you bare down to hard it will break. Mine did. I had no idea it was this soft. It literally melted down into the tube. I was a little heart broken. So I can't use it as a lipstick anymore and apply it straight from the tube, but I can use my finger and apply it but I don't like it as much. At least I took pictures before I used it. The color is extremely sheer and not very build able but it is still a pretty color. It doesn't last very long on the lips either. So, I'm pretty disappointed in this product but I have high hopes for other products from this collaboration. If you would still like to try this product and others, you can here for $39.

Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette Eyeshadow Tutorial

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've done a tutorial, but the Electric palette from Urban Decay has inspired me again :) So let's stop the chit chat and get started! All the products I use will be listed as I go.

First start off with a clean eye and prime with an eyeshadow primer. I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then you want to use a white cream base to make these bright shadows pop. I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

Then I added Freak to the eyelid with a flat shader brush. Do not go above the crease with this color.

Next I added Thrash to the inner corner and blended it into Freak.

Next I added Gonzo to the outer third of my eye. This picture will be before I blended it.

And now taking a clean fluffy brush, I blended Gonzo in Freak and added color and blended over and over until I was happy with the saturation.

Then I took Urban on a small pencil brush and mapped out where I wanted the color and then I took another clean brush and blended it upward towards the browbone.

Taking that same blending brush, I picked up a little of Jilted and blended that into and a little above Urban.

Next on an angled brush I put fringe on the outer half of the lower lash line.

And then I took Freak and put it in the middle of the lower lash line blending it into Fringe and Freak.

After adding some final touches like gel liner on the upper lash line, mascara, and bright pink lipstick, you are done! Here are some pictures of the finished look.

Thanks for reading!

Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches

Hey guys! I'm so excited today because I am here to review Urban Decay's Electric Pressed Pigment Palette. This palette consists of 10 pressed pigments that are insanely pigmented and bright and a double ended brush. Before I want to start this review, I have to point out that a few of the shades are not intended for immediate eye area. Those colors include: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban. The reason why you can't use them in your eye area is because they are some of the brighter colors. If you have sensitive eyes, I would not recommend using those colors on your eyelid, or around you eye. But if you do not have sensitive eyes, I believe it would be okay. So lets start reviewing the colors! Starting at the top left, Revolt is a bright silver shade. It has tiny silver specks of glitter which are prone to fall out. If you tap off your brush, it doesn't fall out too bad though. It's one of the rougher shades that are not as smooth, but it has good staying power. The next color is Gonzo which is a matte turquoise with a silver pearl finish. It is very soft and blends beautifully. Slowburn is next and it is an orange red matte, with almost a peachy pearl finish in the pan. On the eye, its a lot more matte and very soft. Next is Savage which is a very hot pink matte, but is one of the drier shades, but still blends okay. The last shade on the top is Fringe which is a metallic teal. It's a great shadow, but one of my least favorites. The first shade on the bottom is Chaos which is a cobalt matte blue. This shade is amazing. It is a little dry, but blends really well. It is definitely an uncommon shade. Jilted is next and it is a bright fuchsia which a blue shift to it. It is very soft and blends well. Next is Urban and it is a bright shimmery grape purple. It has pink undertones and looks really well with green eyes. Next to last is Freak which is a very light green with yellow gold shift. It is one of the softest colors and blends very very well. Finally we have Thrash which is a lime green matte with a gold hue. It is a little dry but still blends on the eye. If you would like to buy this palette, you can for $49 here. Now lets see some pictures!

MAC Studio Sculpt Shade and Line Eyeshadow in Olive Blend Review, Pictures, and Swatches

Hey guys! I'm here today to review MAC's new eyeshadows called Studio Sculpt Shade and Line. I'm reviewing the one in the shade Olive Blend. It consists of 3 eyeshadows, two are shimmer, one is matte. You can use them wet or dry. The one that is matte is to be used at the liner in your eye look. It is in the middle and it a deep olive green. The shadow is my least favorite because it is not very pigmented at all. It is chalky and not soft at all. The color above is a medium copper with a frosty finish. It has the most pigment and is very soft is very blendable. The color on the bottom is an olive but with more brown tones. It is not pigmented as much as the copper shade, but more pigmented than the liner shade. It's a bit powdery, but can be blended easily. I don't think I will buy another one, but you can for $21 here.

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade Review & Swatches

Hey guys! I'm here with a review of Anastasia DIPBROW in Chocolate. This is an eyebrow pomade that is in a deep warm brown color. This stuff is worth every penny. I finally understand all the hype that surrounds this product. It is insanely pigmented and does not budge at all. I put this on with an angled brow brush and combed through it with a spoolie and it did not smudge at all. It's crazy. I wore this when I jumped in the shower and after I got out, all my makeup was gone, but my eyebrows! It is very creamy and blends very well, but when it dries, it doesn't move. Seriously. All day. It's awesome. It is so easy to use and can look very natural. They have five different colors and I totally recommend it for anybody. If you would like to purchase this you can for $18 here, but it is sold out at this moment.
