Life Update!

We are moving from Alaska to Texas and the movers come tomorrow morning!  All of my makeup is packed away and we won't be settled into our new home in Texas until mid June.  I won't be able to post anything to my blog until then.  I will be hitting up a few CCO's on our big road trip, so hopefully I'll find a few goodies along the way!  You all take care and I will talk to you in June!  xoxo Heather

New L'Oreal Nail Polish in Gorgeous Gold #168

I found this polish in the same end display as the L'Oreal Infallible 24 hour eyeshadow that I just swatched here.  There were four limited edition polishes, but this was calling my name!  It is so beautiful and I love how it has a texture to it.  The formula was opaque in two coats and it actually dried very quickly.  Enjoy the swatch!!

New L'Oreal Infallible 24 hour eyeshadow swatches!

L'Oreal has a few new Infallible 24 hour eyeshadows that I found on an end display.  I love these eyeshadows, so I couldn't pass them up.  Gleaming Bronze is a must have in my opinion.  It reminds me of MAC Old Gold Pigment!  Enjoy the swatches!

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish Swatches! (Styled Out & Orange Rx)

I found these on an end display at Walmart and figured I'd give them a try.  They were only $3 each, but they are smaller bottles with only 0.23oz.  I love the color Styled out.  It really looks like denim on the nails!  The formula on both of these were great, but styled out was slightly better and opaque in 1 coat!  Enjoy the swatches!

Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow (swatches)

These are probably the longest lasting eyeshadows I have ever used.  They stay on like they are superglued on! No joke!  They are creamy to apply, but they dry fast and once they are dry, they aren't budging!  Crazy!!  They were $3 and are 0.19oz jars with screw on lids.  Enjoy the swatches!

Guerlain Meteorites by Emilio Pucci (swatch/review)

I had always been curious to try the Guerlain Metorities, but always talked myself out of it because of the hefty $59 price tag.  I had a gift card and honestly had no clue what to buy, so I started reading the reviews on Sephora for the Meteorites and decided it was time to see what was so great about these!   Turns out, I LOVE IT!!  I have combination skin (mild dryness on cheeks and break outs happen mostly on my chin).  I almost didn't do this review because I don't even know how to explain what the Meteorites do for my skin.  It's not sparkly AT ALL.  There are some sparkles in it, but they disappear on the skin.   I do my full makeup routine and then I use the Guerlain Meteorite brush and apply this all over my face.  It just makes your skin look like someone else's skin.  Does that even make sense?  I actually stood in the bathroom looking at my face up close after applying this because my skin looked so awesome, but I wasn't sure how it happened.  I couldn't see the Meteorites on my skin, it was almost like the changed happened from the inside out.  I guess the point I want to make is that if you have been on the fence about these, give them a try.  I really think the blue pearls in this Emilio Pucci Edition is what evens out the skintone so well.  Here is what the Sephore website says:

What it is:
An illuminating powder that delivers pure radiance.

What it does:
These must-have multi-colored little pearls are adopting their new summer wardrobe encased in Pucci-adorned packaging. Météorites Perles D’azur is also enriched with a corrective blue pearl to create a flawless complexion. Formulated like the classic Météorites Perles, the Perles d’Azur beautifully adapts to the demands of the sun by combining six colors that even out and correct every skintone.
