NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream

 

Details:

The NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream shades deliver a burst of pearly color and set to a stunning matte finish. These little beauties are just as lightweight, delightfully creamy and sweetly scented as all the shades you know and love!

 

Review:

I like these NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Creams because they are almost a metallic matte. They definitely dry down and they do feel dry on the lips, so if you don’t like that feeling then you won’t like these. How can you now though? These shades are amazing!

These have beautiful pigment and they glide on the lips nicely. There are a few that went on my lips patchy, those shades include:Havana and Manila. You really have to layer those two up for them to look good. Other than those two, the shades are amazing! My favorites are: Madrid, Milan, and Monte Carlo.

These last a long time! They were really difficult to take off as I was watching them, so you know the lasting power is there.

They are affordable and the shades are amazing, totally worth the buy!

Too Faced White Peach Eye Shadow Palette & Peaches and Cream Collection – Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

Was anyone else so excited to see the NEW Too Faced White Peach Eye Shadow Palette to come out? I couldn’t wait! I love most of the shade range in this palette and couldn’t wait to swatch it and try it on my eyes.

Too Faced White Peach Eye Shadow Palette

 

 

 

Review:

As I stated before – I love the shade range in this palette. I am a huge fan of dusty mauve shades. I have always been a fan of Too Faced. I remember buying my first higher-end eyeshadow palette from them and was hooked ever since. They definitely have some palettes that aren’t that great but I will say that I really liked this one.

What would have made this palettes amazing is if all the shades were matte like the Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette. The mattes in that palette are amazing!

I am so happy that this palette isn’t loaded with shimmers. There is a good mix of mattes and that makes me happy! The formula is just like any other amazing Too Faced palette. The shadows are super buttery, bendable, and pigmented. I love every shade except for Creme De La Peach and Peaches & Dreams. I am not the biggest fan of yellow-orange shades on my lids. But other that those two shades, I love everything else about this palette.

Shades:
  • Teenage Dreams
  • Puppy Love
  • Squad Goals
  • Beset Buds
  • Cool Intentions
  • Moody

Review:

If you like matte lipsticks then these are for you! There are as the name suggests – a Powder Lippie. These have a powder mouse-like consistency.

They have really nice pigment and they glide on the lips nicely. These dry down to a powdery finish but are not transfer proof. They last quite a few hours and almost leave a stain on your lips. I think they are comfortable for being a matte lip product.

The only thing I don’t like is the applicator. I feel like you can’t get a precise line. Other than that, these lippies are another hit for NYX!

Milani Most Loved Mattes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

I was so excited to see Milani come out with such a beautiful matte palette. The new Milani Most Loved Mattes Eyeshadow Palette came out a week or so ago and I hoped right on that wagon and bought it.

Right now I can only find it on milanicosmetics.com, but I am hoping to see it at Ulta and CVS. Only time will tell.

 

Details:

For endless multidimensional looks, reach for our Most Loved Mattes Eyeshadow Palette. This compact features 12 full color matte eyeshadows that deliver maximum pigment payoff. From neutrals to alluring, deep hues, this expertly curated makeup essential includes 3 duos + 3 trios + 3 quads for a variety of fun and flirty, on-trend looks.

 

Review:

I did a review when the Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes came out and I was in LOVE!! Click here to see my review. I did a review video on them as well and I remember saying “Milani better come out with an all matte palette, because it would be amazing!”. Sure enough they exceeded my expectations! I loved the mattes so much in those palettes. They are hands-down the best matte drugstore eyeshadows.

With that said, this new palette is just as amazing as their other mattes in those palettes. I love everything about this palette. I love the packaging, the way it’s laid out, and the shades.

The formula is beautiful and very comparable to a high-end palette. They are super smooth, easy to blend, very pigmented, and look amazing on the eyes. There is something about this formula that really smooths out everything on the eyelids, it’s hard to explain. It almost makes your eyelids look airbrushed.

The only downside for some people will be the rice. I personally feel like $20 is totally worth it, especially since it’s better than some high-end eyeshadows. I would pay that price all day for any palette that has a similar formula as this one.

I hope that they come out with more matte shades ranges. I would love to see a cool matte version with grays, taupes, dusty roses, etc.

I will say this is the best matte and best eyeshadow palette from the drugstore!!

NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes – Review & Swatches

Affiliate

Today I am bringing you another new NYX review. I have SO many products to review so be on the lookout every day.

I have both NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes. These came out earlier this year, I believe. I have reviewed many NYX palettes before and I am amazed every time. Click here to see my past reviews.

Details:

Explore a rainbow of color with NYX Professional Makeup’s Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes! Available in gorgeous color combinations, this striking set features ten bouncy, silky-to-the-touch, eyeshadows in a range of matte and shimmer finishes. Spoiler alert: You are going to freak out when you feel these soft and pillowy shades for the first time – the marshmallow-like texture reminds us of our fave Japanese treat – mochi!

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Sleek and Chic Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

 

Review:

Both of these palettes are available on Ulta.com and the NYX Cosmetics website.

These palettes didn’t really WOW me, partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love these palettes.

The eyeshadow formula is good. It is nice, creamy, and blends well. They work better with your finger rather than a brush, but they still work with a brush, the pigmentation isn’t as great though. Both eyeshadow formulas perform the same, but I prefer the Sleek and Chic eyeshadow palette because of the shade selection. I will say that the one shade that disappointed me from that palette is the dark black shade. The pigmentation is really sheer for that one, as you can see from the swatches.

Another downfall is the price. I feel like $20 is too much for this palette. It think it should be priced closer to $12-$15. Ulta always has sales on NYX products so wait for a sale to pick one up.

Great Mother’s Day Present | JORD Wooden Watch Review & Contest

PR

Today I am reviewing something a little different on my blog. Typically I review makeup, skincare, haircare, etc. And sometimes I will review fashion items – but it seems like it has been a while since I have. So today I am reviewing this beautiful wooden watch by JORD.

I have teamed up with JORD to give you the opportunity to get your own unique wooden watch (and/or one for someone you love) at an amazing discount.

Enter the wooden watch giveaway at https://www.jordwatches.com/g/kittykatdoesmakeup

The winner gets a $100 e-voucher and EVERYONE who enters gets a $25 e-gift code! The contest ends on May 21st, 2017.

I thought that since Mother’s Day is approaching rather quickly, that this would be a great gift to give. It’s unique, beautiful, high-quality and it will be a gift that she can keep for a really long time.

When JORD reached out to me and asked if I wanted to review one of their watches of course I said YES! I have wanted a wooden watch for SOOO long! Plus they have soon many beautiful watches to chose from – click here to see their site.

I picked out the CORA series Zebrawood & Turquoise color. I personally wish I could have all of the watches for different outfits.

 

 

Isn’t this just the cutest watch ever?? I love turquoise and this watch looks so good with so many sprint and summer looks. I have gotten so many compliments on it.

I personally like to pair the watch with different bracelets to give it that boho look. You can dress it down or dress it up – it’s that versatile.

 

JORD watches are totally worth the price and the quality is unlike any other wood watch I have seen. They use Sapphire glass which is known in the luxury watch world as the definitive material for transparency and durability. Sapphire is a synthetic crystal (aluminum oxide Al2O3) rather than actual glass. It is colorless and optically clear. Mechanically, it is second only to diamond as the hardest and most scratch resistant materials on earth. It also has a very high modulus of elasticity and tensile strength, making it extremely versatile and resistant to impact/abrasion.

I love the different types of wood they have for different watches. I really love the back of this watch. It’s clear so you can see the gears..SO COOL! I am totally in love and would recommend these watches to anyone I know.

 

 

Don’t forget to enter the contest!!!

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Collection | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I LOVE this whole collection! The packaging is to die for. I wish all of their packaging could be like this. I love unicorns and the colors that just scream UNICORN!  I only picked up a few items but so far I am loving everything.

 

Make Believe In Yourself: Magic Wands Brush Set

I love these brushes so much!! They are so soft and so beautiful. I don’t even want to use them because they are so pretty. I just want to put them on display. They are all so soft and they get the job don’t. They blend makeup beautifully and there is nothing bad to say about them. I just wish there were more in the collection!!

 


Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette

If you love shimmery shades, you will love this palette. These are so pigmented and beautiful! I personally love matte eyeshadows more. But if you really love pigmented shimmer shades then you need this. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the eyes. They almost feel wet like a Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow. They are all shimmers except for one matte shade which is so pigmented and soft. The white shade is perfect for a highlight on the face as well!

 


 

Make Believe In Yourself: Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter

This highlighter is pretty but it isn’t one of those highlighters that will glow from outer space. It is almost more of a natural glow, which I like. I love the different shades. You can use each of them on their own or you can swirl them all together. Either way, they are beautiful!

 


 

Make Believe In Yourself: Limited-Edition Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara

Of course I had to but this mascara for the packaging!! I love this packaging. I think they should change their original Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara into this packaging forever! This mascara is just an all-around staple. It is a great everyday mascara. It keep the lashes curled, doesn’t budge or flake and makes the lashes look pretty and not too over the top.

Other Details
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-free

 

 

REVIEW:

This palette is amazing!! I love everything about it. I know the colors aren’t everyday wearable colors, but for some people they can pull it off. I think the colors go really well with each other and they are so visually appealing.

The formula is amazing! I think it is better than the previous palette. This formula is a dream formula. I have nothing bad to say about it. They are SO pigmented!! Not only are they pigmented, but they blend like a dream and there is barely any fall out.

These are all matte shades except two. I can’t tell you how amazing the mattes are. They really could be my favorite formula so far. The shimmers are really nice too, the shades just aren’t my favorite and I don’t wear a lot of shimmer shades.

I wish Jeffree would come out with an all matte palette or just a neutral palette for all of us that love those neutrals.

This palette is amazing and everyone needs it in their collection!

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter

What it is: 
A heart-shaped highlighter with a silky smooth texture that allows for a buildable pearl radiance.

What it does: 
Using an exclusive liquid-to-powder formula, Love Light takes the best of powder, liquid, baked and cream formulas to create unparalleled color payoff for a pearl radiance and silky smooth texture. It features a luminosity boosting agent and high pearl consistency that instantly brightens. It delivers gorgeous color payoff with a pearl, radiant finish in universal shades that impart a flattering glow and an eye-catching, metallic shine.

What else you need to know: 
Too Faced Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino was inspired to capture that ethereal glow that occurs only when a woman is in love, so he went to Italy to discover an exclusive, liquid-to-powder formula that enables the light reflecting pigments to float in the powder. Unlike traditional pressed powders that crush the pearls during the pressing process, Too Faced’s innovative technology keeps the pearls spherical so they’re able to reflect light from any angle.

 

 

 

REVIEW:

These highlighters are so beautiful! I was immediately drawn by the packaging and the geometric shape inside. I didn’t even want to use these because they are so beautiful. They would be so beautiful to keep on display.

Just like the packing the actually highlighter are beautiful themselves. They have the perfect amount of pigment and look beautiful on the skin. They are nicely pigmented and blend into the skin really nicely. I really wish they would have come out with more colors, and maybe they will in the future.

You can use these on your face or as eyeshadows. I personally love the champagne shade – Blinded By The Light. They are all so beautiful and there is a shade for everyone.

REVIEW:

Uhhh I love this palette!! I have never purchased a MAC eyeshadow palette until this one and I am very impressed. I own many MAC single eyeshadows and I was curious to see how they compare. I think the shadows in this palette are actually better than some of the singles I own.

I pretty much love all of the shades in this palette except one – Indiscretion. It was so awful and patchy; you can see it from the swatch below. Other than that shade, they were all amazing! I particular love the matte shades. They are so creamy, soft and pigmented. They glide on the lids so nicely and blend out like a dream. I didn’t have any issues with fall out either. They last all day and don’t crease.

I honestly love this palette so much! it’s my new go-to everyday palette. It is totally worth the price too. If you were to buy these shades individually, it would cost $134!!
