Interesting to note that the color appears pink and peachy-orange in the same light but at a different angle. I have also tried to show that on the brush.

A closer look shows the shimmer in direct sun:

The final result is very hard to capture but it’s more like a golden Summer glow.

OVERALL:
For $9 USD, it’s available in 5 shades. I won’t say I love these, because the powder could have been more finely milled to be more blend able and appear more natural. However, it’s a good budget buy.

This one post has taken me over a month to out together , the longest any product ever !! I wanted to try and make sure I do not endorse an item that doesn’t work. I won an Instagram Giveaway by Rozge and got to pick any one item from their products. I picked THIS !!!

From what I remember Elizabeth Arden used to sell Vitamin E capsules years back, and since then I have been eager to try one. I was absolutely excited and ecstatic when I saw these capsules on the website and quickly requested them.

They look so pretty that before you use them, you will Fall in love already!

Since I need that extra moisture for my skin these oils are extremely helpful. They don’t have any anti-aging chemicals so you get the hydration with a youthful glow.They can be purchased online via Rozge.com.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick In Pink Quartz

This shimmering, brush-on powder creates a soft, warm pink glow. Works well with neutral and pink blush shades.

To apply: Sweep the Face Blender Brush through all five shades of Shimmer Brick Compact and dust lightly on cheekbones after blush. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of cheekbones – where light naturally hits the face – for the most flattering look.

All Shades Swatched L-R as per Top-Bottom on the palette

Finally: Blended and applied with a light hand.

OVERALL : I have never loved a product this much !!! It’s from her permanent line so it can be easily purchased. I have two more similar drugstore shimmer bricks that I will be comparing soon. However, the Bobbi Brown Powder is so finely milled that it doesn’t just “sit” on the skin rather blends effortlessly. I use it just above the cheeks connecting to the brows. Use the blush as usual. This adds such a depth and dimension to the fave like nothing I have seen before. Unlike other shimmer powders it doesn’t settle into the pores, but just adds that glow! Highly recommended !!!!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure In 550 Blue My Mind

Hey friends !
This is just a quick post .. Wanted to share my winter blues 😊
Used the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polish to satisfy my urge for blue nail color.. It’s a vibrant cobalt blue. Swatched 2 thick coats. It comes with a wide brush which made it difficult to reach nail sides without smudging over the skin. No matter how much I swipe the brush, it still holds polish that drips so you have to careful and quick to apply else it follows onto the nail. It’s a nice color but I didn’t like the brush.

OVERALL : I would definitely recommend this product to those who are in search of a perfect lip care. One wear lasted me hours and survived a cup

It can be purchased via company 3Lab directly or through high end stores like Barneys, BeautyBar and Amazon.

OVERALL: They don’t last longer than average long lasting gloss but they keep lips so well hydrated even after they wear off. For best color effects they are best worn layered over a lipstick. They are quite sheer but plenty of sparkle !!
