NYX OMBRE BLUSHES REVIEW + SWATCHES| New at the Drugstore 2016

Hi beauties!

I’m so excited to be doing a review and swatch video on the new NYX Ombre blushes. These blushes are part of NYX’s new Spring 2016 collection; they come in 8 different shades and retail for about $10 at nyxcosmetics.com.

I’m a huge fan of NYX’s HD blushes – I find them to be incredibly pigmented and blendable, so I had high hopes for the new Ombre blushes and thankfully they didn’t disappoint!

Hi beauties!

I spotted the new Revlom Ultra HD Matte Lip Colors at Rite Aid yesterday, so naturally I had to do a review + lip swatch video! These retail for $9.49 each but if you have the Rite Aid discount card you can score them for roughly $5 each.

Sneak Peak: L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator

Hi beauties!

A new illuminator is about to hit the drugstores come July and it’s from one of my favorite brands: L’Oreal. The new True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator claims to be “The Ultimate Illuminator Crafted for Every Skin Tone.“ And with three shades to choose from, it looks like they’re off to a good start.

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 12.16.15 PM

Golden – enhances yellow and peach undertones

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 12.16.21 PM

Ice – enhances pink and blue undertones

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 12.16.28 PM

Rose – enhances pink, blue, yellow, and peachy undertones

The liquid illuminators feature Pearl-Light Technology, a specially formulated technology of liquefied pearl spheres that will give optimal color purity and brightness with a pearlescent finish. Basically, you’re going to look like a glowing goddess with this stuff.

They’re also said to brighten the skin instantly, have a breathable, lightweight feeling, and enhance the complexion for a luminous, refreshing finish.

HOW TO USE: Wear it under, over, or mixed with foundation around eyes, cheekbones, and lips. It’s supposed to add a glowing accent and adjust to skin undertone.

AVAILABILITY: July 2015

PRICING: $12.99

Will you be picking this up?

NEW L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray Review + Demo

Hi beauties!

The new L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray has hit drugstores – the first makeup setting spray to hit the drugstores from a major drugstore brand, hooray! I got mine for roughly $16 at CVS, but I know that others have been able to snag it for $13.

If you guys didn’t know, L’Oreal actually owns Urban Decay, however, the ingredient list of the L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray and the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray are quite different.

L’Oreal Setting Spray Ingredients:

Urban Decay Setting Spray Ingredients:

Water, SD-Alcohol 39-C, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Isononyl Isononanoate Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Sodium Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate PVP, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Methyl Diisopropyl Propionamide, Dimethicone PEG-7 Phosphate, PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Glycereth-5 Lactate, Methyl Methacrylate Cross Polymer, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Fragrance.

The L’Oreal makeup setting spray comes in a rubberized, black packaging and contains 3.4  fluid ounces of product. It claims to be oil-free, and has a micro-fine texture that’s supposed to be used only after you’re done applying all of your makeup to set everything in place. The directions also say to shake it well, hold it 8 to 10 inches away from your face, and spray on your face in an ‘X’ and ‘T’ motion.

I’ve been testing this product out for a few days now and I have to say I’m not that impressed, especially for such a hefty drugstore price tag. While it did prolong the wear of my powder products (blush, bronzer), I found that my concealer faded and I did notice black transferring underneath my eyes (possibly from my mascara or eyeliner) after hour one. It also felt tacky and sticky on certain areas of my face, almost as if it never complete set into my skin.

Have you guys spotted this at your local drugstore? What are your thoughts?
