Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

Boy am I in love with the latest, limited edition Revlon’s Bedroom Eyes Powder Liner ($10)! With this baby, all I need to do is draw a line along my lash line then smudge with a q-tip or MAC #252 brush and I get the perfect smoky eyes. Talk about fast and easy!

There are a total of 6 gorgeous rich colors available and they are all great for the smoky look. I have Fishnet Jet, which is a charcoal black. The color is very pigmented and a little goes a looooong way. The product also goes on really creamy but since it is powder, application can get a little messy and you do get fallouts. I would suggest applying a generous layer of loose powder under your eye to catch any fallouts and tapping the applicator to remove excess before you apply the product. Alternatively, do your foundation and concealer after you use this. Also, this is NOT the product to use to create a fine line – use a liquid eyeliner for that instead. The sponge tip applicator is simply too big for precise application but if you are going for smudgy eyes, this is definitely it.

When I first saw the promo pics and online swatches, I thought this was MY collection. I live for bright colors and everything looked so good for the summer! But when I finally got to see it in person, I was far from thrilled.

I have always loved The Body Shop Body Butter ($17.50) and it is the only lotion that I would use on my body religiously – I am usually too lazy to apply lotion after I shower *lol*

These babies come in cute, colorful tubs and they smell so good I literally want to eat them! The texture is also nice and thick and it does spread like butter. Plus it is non-greasy and sinks right into your skin, leaving it baby soft and moisturized for up to 24 hours!

There is currently a deal going on in the UK where you can get a 200ml tub at half price (£6 as supposed to £12) so run to your nearest counter and pick one up!

Flavors That I Love
* Brazil Nut
* Grapefruit
* Peach

Move over MAC, Barry M Fine Glitter Dust and Dazzle Dust are like the hottest thing right now!

Used by celebs like Jamelia, Christina Aguilera and Girls Aloud, these loose powder eyeshadows are available only in the UK and are comparable, if not better, to MAC’s pigments and glitters. They come in a little glass jar with a black plastic lid just like MAC Fluidlines, only smaller in size. There are a total of over 60 gorgeous colors to choose from, which are all shimmery and highly pigmented. The Dazzle Dusts are just like MAC Pigments while the Glitter Dusts are the same but mixed with tiny pieces of glitter. They are both uber fine, smooth and totally non-gritty. Plus they are super easy to blend and stay on for hours too! I *love* wearing these when I go clubbing – they just make my eyes sparkle!

I currently own the following five colors and I am definitely going to get more:



From Left to Right: Chocolate, Old Gold, Pale Purple, Purple and Blue Grey
