NYX B52 Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatch

  • Nyx round lipstick in B52 is mauvish brown pink
Overall opinion : Who isn't familiar with nyx cosmetics round lipsticks ? Nyx round lipsticks are really very creamy and have this moisturizing formula which applies and feels so smooth on lips. Nyx offers round lipsticks in so many shades so it has something for everyone. Nyx round lipstick in B52 is a beautiful neutral shade which is flattering for different skin tones , but dusky skin tones might want to check out the shade first as it may look bit ashy. B52 applies smoothy and finish has a nice sheen to it. Like most of nyx round lipsticks the wear is average, since texture is smooth and has slip to it , i needed to reapply after the meal.I love this shade and it has become my everyday shade.

taken in direct sunlight

Do i recommend : Nyx round lipstick in B52 is a medium pink shade with just enough brown If you're looking for a neutral shade (MLBB) , you will love this shade.Its a beautiful shade for medium skintones .

Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Review - Matte & Classic

Coastal Scents shadow worx claims to Construct the perfect canvas for eye shadow application with our Shadow Worx Matte Primer.
This lightweight, creamy primer appears opaque upon application and is ideal for those with oily lids, uneven skin texture or anyone who experiences creasing or fading. Shadow Worx creates a smooth finish allowing eye shadow to be vibrant, crease and fade proof all day long. The convenient squeeze tube and slim tip allow for precise disbursement of product, down to the very last drop.  

Coastal scents offers their shadow worx primer in two formulas
Matte - peachy shade m which blends clear
 • Shimmer  -  champagne-colored shimmer

The matte come out kinda of peachy but after blending it becomes clear.The Coastal Scents Shadow Worx in shimmer is almost dupe for Urban Decay primer potion in sin (champagne shimmer ) I had both so i swatched them together for you.
Overall opinion :  I am on the fence about these primers I mean they do enhance the eyeshadow and make them more vibrant but tend do crease after sometime. I like the packaging ,Both Coastal Scents Shadow Worx comes in squeezable tube packaging with a slim point tip which is great to control the amount of product you need.  I like the way they apply on skin , they are light weight and easy to blend.But they do have a slip to the formula which makes it to crease. .When i compared to the Urban decay Primer potions, UD one was bit thick and applied evenly whereas Shadow worx was bit uneven .You need a little amount ,since it spreads out and blend easily ,you only need a tiny amount since they spread easily. The real test comes when we check if they crease or not ? Well they do tend to crease after couple of hours of wear. I don't have "extra
' oily lids, in my opinion my eyelids are fine , but they creased on my lids sooner than any UD primer potion but they lasted more than 5 hours. I observed that since they have slip to the formula , over applying the primer will end up creasing shadows rather quickly.
Below are the swatches , I used Nyx iced mocha single shadow with the shimmer shadow worx and i used the matte one with the L'oreal Hip shadow. You can clearly see that it enhanced the shade pigmentation and did make them more vibrant.

Do i recommend  : If you are in market for a decent primer , i will suggest you to take advantage of coastal scents sales which happen quite many time in year , and give it a try. I like the way they apply on skin , they are light weight and easy to blend.But they do have a slip to the formula which makes it to crease.

Essie Summer 2012

Introducing the essie 2012 Summer Collection

Now is the time to suit up. Whether you prefer to strike a pose poolside or relax at the beach, the myriad maillot varieties provide endless inspiration for this season’s hottest shades. Wherever you may fall on the swimsuit spectrum, there’s a color for it – and it’s invariably essie.“The search for the perfect swim silhouette requires courage!” Essie Weingarten, founder and creative director of essie proclaims. “My advice: start your search with a great color. You simply can’t lose if the color fits.” This splashy collection makes having fun in the sun even easier. “If you’re feeling nervous – and let’s face it, we all do – a perfect mani/pedi can give you a major confidence boost.” Confidence is the key to being truly sexy!

How appropriate, then, to cavort in a sextet of seductive colors that will give you a leg up. Less is more when it comes to a flirty two-piece, but never skimp on luxe color. Intensely saturated brights and cocquettish pearlescent pastels make a beautiful statement without covering up your impeccable style. Exuber-ant sky blue casts a spell with charming playfulness. Blazing summer-hot pink pushes the limits, while intensely bright orange takes you past the point of no return. How much gorgeous can a good man take? Shimmering molten bronze tests his mettle and surely bends him to your will. Wherever you find yourself this summer, take the plunge with color that declares: life’s a beach!

  • bikini so teeny—provocative lustrous sky blue
  • cascade cool—frosty, shimmery carnation pink
  • all tied up—naughty molten bronze
  • off the shoulder—daring, scorching hot pink
  • fear or desire—obsession-worthy bright orange
  • mojito madness—fun-loving party lime

essie’s Summer Collection will be available in June 2012 for a suggested retail price of $8.00 per bottle in salons and beauty destinations worldwide.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Review , Photos & Swatches

I was grocery shopping at Walmart yesterday and innocently i got lost in makeup section , and when i saw new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain , i knew that is what i have been looking for because beauty world is obsessed with them and i have seen reviews about them everywhere blog, you tube,twitter .

I really don't need any more lip stuff ( or matter of fact any makeup related item) But In my defense i ONLY I got two shades and i love them both equally.
  • Honey - is a brownish mauve rosy color
  • Lovesick - Hot pink with shimmer

It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood.

Overall opinion : I am not a "lipstain" kinda girl but i am in love with these already. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains feel so light on the lips. They have a little sheen on application ,which fades away after a while.Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain tend to settle into fine lines so i will highly recommend exfoliating before applying them. Then lets talk about the packaging ,The packaging is the actual color of the product so its a huge plus point for me . They are so chubby and cute , kinda reminds me of myself.  *winks*  . I love minty lip products , doesn't matter if they are plumping or not so when i found that they have minty smell i was thrilled. It leaves a slight cooling sensation which is not overwhelming and disappears after a while.
Honey is MLLB shade, very wearable . Its perfect for day to day bases when you don't feel like wearing "lipstick" . I like lovesick because it brightens up my face. Its build able so you can wear it sheer or layer it for more bright color.

Do i recommend : I love them. I love the way they apply so smoothy and hassle free. They last long and reapplication is easy.The packaging shows what actual color looks like which is so convenient.It might not be moisturizing enough for winters alone but in these summer month ,they work well.Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain smell very faintly of mint so, it might be a turn off for some.

  • Price: $8.99 - $7.69 (i bought them for $7.98 from walmart)
  • Availability-Drugstore retailers and online. 

 I cant wait to pick more shades when revlon goes on sale like 40% or On BOGO in future. Have you tried the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain?
