Becca Glow to Go Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights Set Review and Swatches

Lovely product but the set is overpriced….

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Petite Highliner Collection Review and Swatches

Amazing creamy and pigmented long wearing liners.   These are beautiful and the colors might look unoriginal but on are stunning.  Soften with a liner brush.  $134 of liner for $45.

Tarte Bon Voyage Collector's Set and Travel Bag Review and Swatches

I love this set and think it's Tarte at it's best.  The set is a great value and perfect for everyday (or smokier looks).  Tarte's shadows are best with a primer and this set is arranged in rows for easy looks.  The first is mauve or great based purples, next are warmer browns and the third is a quirky mix of shimmery and matte warm colors (including a very pigmented dark brown) and a grey.  The last row is greys with a blue (the latter could be more pigmented).

The mini gel blush in Muse is an amazing color, a neutral with perhaps a plum undertone and a real glow to it.  Perfect for when trying to balance darker lips or eyes, or for a natural glow.

The full size Lipsurgence and gloss are both peachy shades that wil work on most (not too dark or light; not to bright or overpowering).

I love this set…and those who like Tarte will likely as well….see more in the video…

Tarte Chic to Cheek Blush Set Holiday 2014 Review and Swatches

Better than last year's set!  These look soft but are still very pigmented applied.  They might not be dark enough for those with dark skin tones…

Urban Decay Vice 3 Review and Swatches

Lovely…a bit metallic but a great mix of neutrals and more eye catching shades.  I love it…

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash Review and Swatches

I just got mine and did a video!  The pinks are very different.  Illicit is a stunning semi sheer with a slight purple tint.  Crush is (of course) a bright but wearable cool pink and Ladyflower is warmer and more muted.  Gash is among my favorite reds, deep and rich with a slight bit of shimmer.  Fbomb is too bold but a true red…for me to wear every day.  Liar was a sleeper hit for me.  Love how muted and almost but not a nude it is.
Swatches and on in the video.
I love the set but they're little.  About one third the size of a normal UD lipstick.
And a full size Ozone (sheer) lipliner…the only type I seem to use…
