KQC Xtreme Deep Waver Review

I went through a lot of hair style phases, as most girls do. In middle school, all I did was scrunch my hair because back then I had naturally curly hair. When I reached high school, my hair didn't have much natural curl left so I started curling my hair with a curling iron. Once I started college, I began straightening my hair. I have straightened my hair for quite some time now and needed a little change. I wanted something that was different than spiral curls and I came across this product on Flat Iron Experts website.

Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette Review

Recently Urban Decay came out with their limited edition Vice 2 eyeshadow palette - retailing for $59. Urban Decay has, by far, the best eyeshadows out there. I've tried eyeshadows from a lot of different brands and the only brand that even comes close to Urban Decay is LORAC. Other than LORAC, Urban Decay's eyeshadows are on their own level! 

The packaging is absolutely gorgeous.. like EVERY other palette Urban Decay has created! I'm sure most brands are envious of the creativity that Urban Decay possesses!

Studio Gear Cosmetics Holiday Smokey Eye Palette Review

I had the opportunity to review this palette through BrandBacker! I haven't heard much of Studio Gear Cosmetics in a while so I was shocked to see them on BrandBacker's website! I'm a huge palette junkie so when I saw this palette up for grabs I snatched it up! 

Be radiant on any occasion with this sultry, shimmery palette of dramatic shades – perfect for creating a classic smoky eye look, with a hint of unexpected golden glimmer. This collection of four complimentary eye shadows with matching blush deliver several day to night options that are both seductive and wearable. With pure color, pigment-rich formulations, you’ll be sure to smolder all night!

If you are interested in this palette, go here to purchase it! It's only $25 which I think is a total steal!

Crown Brush HD Cosmetic Brush Set Review

I recently received the Crown Brush 6 Piece HD Cosmetic Brush Set through iFabbo. I'm a firm believer that you can never have enough makeup brushes (or makeup)! I always like to have back up brushes in case one is really dirty because.. let's be honest - no one enjoys cleaning their makeup brushes! It's my absolute least favorite thing to do! 

This kit comes in orange, purple and white. It costs $27.95 and can be found here. All the brushes are made with high grade synthetic fibers and are vegan friendly. 

This set includes: 

  • Travel Case with Mirror
  • Tweezers
  • Pro Powder Brush
  • Tapered Blush Brush
  • Deluxe Contour Brush
  • Crease Blender Brush
  • Chisel Shadow Brush
  • Detail Liner Brush

Urban Decay Announces Launch Of Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay recently released the Naked 3 palette! There had been rumors going around about this palette for a while and everyone was skeptical. Urban Decay finally announced the launch of the Naked 3 palette! Here are the press release photos:
The Skinny: Our Naked palette revolutionized neutrals forever—and went on to become one of the best-selling palettes EVER. When fans demanded more, Naked2 delivered. Even now, three years after the frenzy first started, the requests for “MORE Naked palettes!” keep coming. Finally, the wait is over. Urban Decay launches Naked3, featuring 12 TOTALLY NEW (and insanely beautiful!) rose-hued neutrals. Our previous Naked palettes have always included new shades, but this is the first time we’ve done a Naked palette with 12 never-before-seen shades that aren’t available anywhere else. Choose from every finish imaginable: ultra-smooth mattes, gorgeous pearls and glimmering metallics. From the palest, shimmery pink to deep, warm black, these neutrals will make you want to get Naked all over again. 

Hype: We’ve spent a LOT of time getting Naked the past few years. We’ve done bronzy and taupey neutrals, but we realized there was a whole spectrum of gorgeous, flushed pinks we hadn’t explored yet. Rose- based hues look great on every skin tone. With 12 new shades, it’s hard to choose favorites, but we predict that Buzz (the pinkest of all the shades) will be a fan favorite. We’re also partial to Nooner (a stunning pinky-brown matte) and Dust (a pale metallic pink shimmer with amazing iridescent glitter), which can be worn on the lids or used as a highlighter. And for an edgy, smoky liner, there’s the aptly named Blackheart—a super dimensional black matte flecked with red glitter.

Nice Package: Naked3 comes in an art-school-inspired tin case (reminiscent of the Naked2 palette)—in a gorgeous rose-gold color that hints at the shades inside. Embossed on top with a big “Naked3” and cool facets that beg to be touched, this case is sure to inspire lots of jealous stares.

Break It Down: Each Eyeshadow features our Pigment Infusion SystemTM, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blend ability.

Naked3 contains:

Strange - pale neutral pink matte-satin
Dust - pale metallic pink shimmer with iridescent micro-glitter
Burnout - light pinky-peach satin
Limit - light dusty rose matte
Buzz - metallic rose shimmer with silver micro-glitter
Trick - light metallic pinky-copper shimmer with tonal micro-sparkle
Nooner - medium pinky-brown matte
Liar - medium metallic mauve shimmer
Factory - pinky-brown satin
Mugshot - metallic taupe shimmer with slight pink shift
Darkside - deep taupe-mauve satin
Blackheart - smoky black matte with rosy red micro-sparkle

Naked3 also includes a NEW double-ended Good karma shadow and Blending Brush AND an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler with resealable samples of all four formulas (original, Sin, Eden and NEW anti-aging). Each sample holds about a week’s worth of primer! 

I was unable to snag one before they sold out on Urban Decay's website! I am on the "notify me when available" email list so that I can get my hands on it ASAP! If you would like to be notified once it is available again, simply click here and fill out the form! This palette is only available through Urban Decay's website and I'm not entirely sure when it will be available in stores. I'm positive Urban Decay will keep us updated!
