Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

The blush texture is really cool. Very visiable indent marks are left after even a gentle swipe of the finger. This product does lack pigmentation, but it's great for a natural glow. Even though a bit more color payoff would have been great. The color shown on the pan is like a pastel light plum purple. There is no shimmer. Very blendable.

                         Avaliable at most drugstores $6-7

MAC Refined Golden Bronzer

This bronzer is from my MAC Look in a Box Tawny One. (The other 3 products will be featured in seperate posts). Refined Golden is a medium brown with gold shimmer. I tend to not wear shimmery bronzers/blushes, but the shimmer in this bronzer when applied is very little. 

Look at the pretty gold shimmer!

2 swipe swatch, it's not as dark when blended out!

MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre

From the Daphne Guinness for MAC collecetion,this blush stood out to me, because of it's color. It starts of bright, but soft light pink, then towards the end, its a light-medium purple. Though shimmer is noticiable in pan, it doesn't show up when I apply. It's a really soft blush color, but can be built up.
This product is limited edition.

Top swatch is light. Bottom is 3 swipes.

Limited Edition at MAC, $26

NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss

Revlon Lip Butters

                            Left : Berry Smoothie (050)
                            Right: Lollipop (075)

              Lollipop is the most pigmented of these two lip butters.
              It's a bright fushia pink wtih little shimmer.
              Berry Smoothie is a very pretty, everyday berry pink.
              It's got purple shimmer.
                        Top: Lollipop Bottom: Berry Smoothie

 * Even though you can't really make out the shimmer in both colors, they are minimal, not chunky sparkles. These lip butters need applying (for me) after 2 hours, but they leave my lips really soft!
