Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush Review:


Well, this flush of color did not fail to disappoint glamour babes. Flower Beauty’s Flower Pots Powder Blush has got me in this crazy little thing called love, and I had a feeling it would. I have not been dissatisfied by a flower beauty product yet! Wait, let me not jinx that statement, I take it back, lol. http://<a href=”http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=991866&u=1496947&m=71085&urllink=&afftrack=”>New Flower Pots Blush – FlowerBeauty.com</a> Product description:

Naturally radiant cheeks that are as pretty as a flower petal! Flower Pots Powder Blush blends on smooth and silky, enhancing your skin tone with a healthy warm flush of color……I can tell you right off the bat, the five shades available (Sweet Pea, Warm Hibiscus, Peach Primrose, Wild Rose, and Deep Peony) will flatter any skin tone, and are the perfect summer accessories for a colorful glowing complexion. Sweet Pea was my all time favorite as was Peach Primrose and Wild Rose, but they were sold out. Next time Walmart. 

Sweet Pea is a warm dusty rose with a satin finish. The formula is finely milled, super duper pigmented, lightweight, and it has a creamy, velvety smooth texture that makes building and blending of the shades effortless.

Oh! And the color payoff is incredible! I was so happy to see my soft rosy cheeks stay with me for a full 8 hours. I am definitely going back for the other two shades, I hope they are back in stock. Fingers crossed!So, I have heard through the Instagram grapevine from several beauty bloggers that these are a dupe of Milani’s Rose Powder Blushes-I beg to differ. The blush compacts are quite different in size. Milani’s are huge comparing to Flower Beauty’s.Both carry different shades and finishes- matte vs. satin. The flower embossments on the blushes are no way near close to each other or are from the same plant family. Drew chose the Camellia flower which is the brands signature flower. Milani on the other hand embossed their blossoming blushes with a rose. The only similarity I see is the price point. Depending on the store or website, the blushes run between $9 to $10. That’s  still an overall good price for a drugstore blush if you ask me.

If you can’t find the Flower Beauty Flower Pots at your local Walmart, look no further boys and girls, FlowerBeauty.com is open for business!

Haul until your heart is content.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Fiona Stiles Light Illusion Prism Palette Review:

I don’t even know where to begin with Fiona Stiles Light Illusion Prism Palette ($14 orig. $28) glamour babes. My haunches are telling me to start with the pros then work my way down to the cons, so let’s begin. But first, I’ll give you boys and gals a brief description of what this palette truly could have been if it didn’t lack in a few areas.Fiona Stiles Light Illusion Prism Palette is a soft focus, silky powder that captures, diffuses and softens the way light reflects on skin, to give a lit from within appearance. Gently luminous, fool-proof application recreates and enhances the way light reflects on skin to refine complexion appearance. Soft shimmer, sheer natural coverage with a subtle glow that’s suitable for all skin tones. Sounds like and obviously is a gorgeous palette, right?

Take note.

Pros:

The palette itself is beautifully eye pleasing. It’s sleek, slender, and sturdy. A perfect tote-able piece.

There are three shades: Shimmering Pink, Shimmering Champagne, and Shimmering Tan.

They Capture, diffuse and soften the way light reflects on skin, to give a lit from within glow. 

They Filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of your complexion

Can be applied almost anywhere to the skin to enhance features softly.

The soft shimmer is pearlescent.

The formulation is finely milled, lightweight, buttery smooth, blends evenly, and applies easily. 

Somewhat buildable.

Cons:

The sheer coverage is very, very sheer, and is not suitable for all skin tones. I’m fair skinned and I had to layer the shades on a bunch of times to produce some kind of glow. Thank god it’s lightweight.

Tons of kickback dust. It gets everywhere.

The shades do not carry much pigmentation. Out of the three, Shimmering Tan has the most. You can actually see that particular shade the best in my photo and its not saying much. 

Shimmering Pink and Shimmering Champagne barely show up on the skin even though my swatches say different. It’s the weirdest thing, I know. 

The longevity is what killed me with this palette. 2 hours of wear and just like that, poof! Gone. I really hate disappearing acts, sigh.

I will be returning the Light Illusion Prism Palette. I recently learned that Ulta is pulling the entire Fiona Stiles line from their Stores- a revamp is on the way! 

I am more than willing to give Fiona’s line another chance if the reformulations prove to be successful. We gotta keep in mind not everyone gets it right on the first try.

Stay beautiful! Xo

J.Cat Beauty Lipfinity Matte Kissproof Lip Review:

 

OH-EMM-GEE glamour babes, I am loving J.Cat Beauty’s Lipfinity Matte Kissproof Lip. There are sooooooo many shades to choose from, and the staying power is incredible for a $5 liquid lipstick. Kiss the ones you love and see if the lipstick transfers. Go ahead! See for yourselves. The kissproof lip is in the pudding. From neutral to bold, J.cat has got what you need in 24 gorgeous transfer-proof shades. Talk about a selection!

I played it safe since these are fairly new and ordered two- Vegas before Vows and Bottles Left and Right.Trust me, I wanted just about all of them, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Especially, when it’s a new product you’re completely unsure of. Take it from the master of over hauling, lol. 

Vegas before Vows is a warm fuchsia red. Bottles Left and Right is a juicy reddish pink. 
The formula is waterproof, lightweight, opaque, crazily long lasting, very comfortable to wear, goes on evenly, and the doe foot wand makes it easy to apply. It does not crack, cake, bleed, feather, crumble or leave lips feeling dry. 
I ate and consumed multiple beverages through out the day when wearing these lip shades, and not one of them transferred on to any cup, nor did they fade. These babies stayed on my lips for 10 hours, with no touch ups needed. The color remained as true to when I first applied it. You will need to use an oil based makeup remover to remove the color. The Kissproof Matte Lip does not budge without it. It’s insane! 

*BEAUTY TIP: I recommend exfoliating your lips before application. This will prevent any color from setting into fine lines or adhering to flaky bits of skin. We’ve all been there and it’s not attractive. Can we agree on this? Little bit, right? Lol.

I am definitely purchasing more shades. Lipfinity’s formula and color payoff has me completely blown away. Plus, they’re super affordable.

Now, I have a question for you, who’s hopping on this J.Cat Beauty band wagon with me?!

Stay beautiful!

NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder Review:

You gotta try these NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders (available at Ulta and NYX Cosmetics for $8.00 each) glamour babes, they illuminate your features beautifully.
Available in five shades (Snow Rose, Twilight Tint, Lavender Steel, Crushed Bloom, and Synthetica) the silky powder blends like a dream for a fresh-faced look. The formula’s light catching pearls deliver a luminous finish that looks different form every angle. NYX is speaking truth. Apply this lightweight, buttery soft highlighter along the highest points of the face so you could see what NYX is talking about-such as the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and Cupid’s bow. Now marvel at the duo chromatic glow in which you created. 

Out of the five, I purchased Snow Rose and Twilight Tint. I thought these two shades in particular had unique hues, and would be flattering on fair to light skin tones.
Snow Rose is a white base with pink and lilac duo chromatic pearls.
Twilight Tint- is a white base with blue duo chromatic pearls. 
I know this is going to sound corny, but I felt like a Disney princess wearing these shades, lol! Wanna know which ones?! Sleeping beauty and that chick from Frozen. You know, the one that sings let it go, and everything she touches turns to ice. What’s her face??? Ah! Elsa. Totally felt like an ice queen as I wore Twilight Tint. Snow Rose and Twilight Tint are breathtakingly enchanting. Depending on how the light hit my face, I loved seeing the icy white base shift to a soft pink/lilac or an icy blue. These duo chromatic powders truly live up to their name. 

Apart from the formula being lightweight and buttery smooth. It is also finely milled (kickback alert!), has gorgeous pigmentation, it’s easy to build up, and blends well. 
I did notice a little fading, but after 8 to 10 hours of wear that’s bound to happen. My face still had the stunning effect of a duo chrome highlighter, only softer. 

Bottom line- I would most definitely recommend NYX’s Duo Chromatic Illuminating powder to just about anyone who loves to strobe. They are so pretty to play with, and are currently on sale at Ulta. Yep, it’s that time again, BOGO! Yay! All you need to do is click on the pink and my site will link you to the rest. Sale ends 5/14.

Happy hauling!

Stay beautiful! Xo.
