Review: Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop

Clinique Cheek Pop

I decided to try out one of the four Cheek Pop blushes from Clinique after hearing nothing but great things about them. I’ve never been much of a fan of Clinique products because the brand seems to be targeted to those with more mature skin. However, beauty gurus continue to rave about these blushes so I knew that I had to try at least one of the shades.

Clinique Cheek Pops are described as “effortless, natural cheek colors. Discover pure, natural cheek color that looks virtually powderless. This silky smooth, stay-true formula …

Review: NARS Sin Blush

Nars Sin

One of my all time favorite blushes is NARS Sin. This color is the most gorgeous plummy pink shade which is perfect for a night out! I love to pair this shade with either dark, smokey eyes or a dark, berry lip.

NARS Blush in Sin is said to be “A soft, sheer pressed powder blush. NARS Blush offers a range of translucent, natural shades, each with a subtle pink for natural blush undertone, created to highlight the complexion.” Sin is described as a “berry with gold shimmer.”

Review: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

Milani Luminoso Blush2

One of my all time favorite blushes is this Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso. This color is soooo pretty! It almost reminds me of the new Hourglass Dim Infusion Ambient Lighting Blush but it has more of a sheen and is less powdery. This shade is the perfect combo of pink and coral with a hint of sheen for a natural highlight.

Milani Baked Blush is said to be “A luxurious powder blush that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracotta tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous. Silky smooth …

Drugstore Favorites!

Drugstore Favorites

Anytime I enter a CVS, Walgreens, or Target, I always leave with some type of makeup product. Throughout the years, I’ve  found a few favorites from the drugstore that I cannot live without. Here is a list of makeup products that I feel should be in your collection:

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Loose Powder – When I am in a rush, I tend to just throw on some powder, concealer, do my brows, and put on mascara before I head out the door. I feel like powder foundations are faster and easier to work with than liquid foundations. I was solely a Bare Minerals foundation user but then I found this …

Review: Stila Portrait of a Perfect Blush Palette

Stila-Portrait Cheek

So I know I’m late on this but I just had to talk about this palette. As part of Stila’s Holiday 2013 collection, they came out with a blush palette. This palette is still available on Sephora’s website. I love love love blush palettes so I had to pick this up. The colors are very pigmented and amazing. I think this palette can be used for all seasons because of the mix of vibrant pinks and roses.
