Lime Crime Matte Velvetine Review and Swatches

Talk about confusing.

Just try looking up reviews on this brand and you’ll get anything from “it’s the most amazing lipstick ever” to “this brand is evil, and has to be stopped” (not an actual review BTW, I’m just summing up the overall opinions of the negative reviews).  One things for sure, this brand has reputation.  The question is, which reputation to believe.  I was undecided.

So when Lime Crime recently had a 75% off sale, I decided to take advantage and see what all the hype was about for myself.

Before I begin, let me say that I will not be getting into any of the accusations that were directed at this brand.  I haven’t done enough research to comfortably state whether the statements are true or just gossip.  However, the information is easily found on the internet and around the beauty community, in case you wanted to read and form an opinion of your own.

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara Review 

It sounds like a super hero, doesn’t it?  The Mega Multiplier: With its powerful 360° tube technology, it creates a force field of water resistant fibers that wrap around your lashes – Saving your beauty look, one lash at a tiiiiimmmmeeee!

It kind of looks important too.  Its comes in a more oval tube rather than round; the cap is a strong, vibrant teal colour; and its name is emblazened on the front with a clean and simple, solid, white print.

BH Cosmetics’ Modern Matte Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review

In my very humble opinion, I think that if you love creating make up looks, its important to have a few varying colors of matte shades to work with.  I’ve been in serious need of matte shadows, but finding a decent matte at a decent cost is no small task.  And lately, my funds are limited.

Luckily, the world has BH Cosmetics to come to the rescue!  A company that I love simply because it allows a broke girl like me to indulge in my beauty addiction.

*New* NeoStrata Anti-Aging Peel Solution

The latest at home, facial peel system has just showed up at my local drugstore.  It claims to be a one-step professional grade peel that’s safe enough for home use.  It boasts the ability to give you the look of younger skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles; promoting skin elasticity and firmness; tightening and minimizing pores; smoothing skin texture; and encouraging skin absorption.  I decided to get a sample so I could give you some initial impressions.

I think its hard to give a fair and accurate review of the benefits of a skincare product after only one use, but this is a face peel, so it should have more dramatic results than other types of skincare products – and, at the very least I can give my initial impression and if I think it might be worth it or not.

Milani Cosmetics Review

In my city, we have one drugstore that sells a very limited amount of Milani Cosmetics, so when I get a chance to go to the U.S., I make sure I swing by the local Walmart where they usually sell a few more items.

Vasanti’s Tinseltown Eye Colour Palette

paletteb

So, I finally got around to snagging a palette from Rexall pharmacy, a couple of weeks back.  I’ve seen this line around, but hadn’t gotten a chance to try it out.  As soon as I sampled the 2nd Shade – which is named only as “Nude Brown Sparkle” – I wanted to know what it looked like on.  The really frustrating thing is that the company has decided to move on, which means you can only find this palette on Amazon for a limited time.
