Lancôme - Pink Organza

Hi guys! I was organizing my make-up drawer and I realized I had this. My mother buys a lot of of Lancôme products so she got this from one of the sets she bought a few years ago. She never tried this color since she wheres a lot of reds so somehow it ended up in my drawer. Well I was cleaning out my drawer and I decided to try this one before I threw it out :x!!! Thank god I did because I absolutely fell in love with this color!

I'm so glad that I tried this since it became my new favorite but the sad apart about it is that now it's discontinued. Even though this is limited edition I thought I would do a review on it becuas there is so little about it on the internet. When I looked it up on MakeUpAlley I saw that reviewers gave it a Average Rating. of 4.5 out of 5.0 and 90% of the reviewers would buy this product again.

The color is a mixture of a coral mauve /pink brown with gold shimmer in it. It looks like typical Guerlain lipsticks. It comes out sheer but is very buildable. It feels similar to a MAC lustre formula but I fond it better and smoother. It looks very natural to where everyday and it makes my lips pop out.

I decided to do some comparisons with this since it is limited edition and I would like to find a dupe of it. As you can see it is more orange than MAC - Warm Me Up and much lighter and pinker than MAC Viva Glam VI. If someone knows a dupe of it please let me know since I have been buying many drugstore lipsticks to find a rosey color like this.

I have a lot of great reviews coming up so keep checking back for more posts! Thanx for reading :)

Revlon 420 and 240 for 4-20-10

Revlon Blushed (420) and Sandalwood Beige (240)

Hello Everyone! Last Week CVS had a BOGO 50% off sale on Revlon lipsticks so I was intereted in buying two more! The better part about this was that I had a $5.00 off CVS coupon so I got these two lippies for around $6.00! So I bought two lipsticks and here they are. The first one I got is Revlon Blushed (420).

I bought this because I was looking for a rosey shade with gold glitters and a MAC Lustre finish. This was my first time buying a Revlon Pearl Finish lipstick and I didn't realize that it would look so silver/ metallic on my lips. The color looks pretty natural to my normal lip color so I have been wearing it for an everyday use. Since that I have actually started to enjoy this lippie, even though it took me a while since it wasn't what I really expected from the MakeUpAlley Reviews and from my own hand swatch.

The next color is Revlon Sandalwood Beige (240).
This lipstick is in a creme finish and has no shimmer at all. It was under the Nudes section towards the end of the row. I wanted to try this one after I saw one of my fellow Blogger swatch it. I thought it would be a rose color since that's what I was looking for but I was wrong. It's a tanned peach/coral color that is orange based. I really extremely love this color and I was so shocked because I find this color to be very unique and cool! I definitely recommend this color if you are a MAC NC35- more skintone!
I have a lot of post coming up so keep checking back. Thanks for reading :)

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Lip Swatches

Hey, everyone! I've been hauling for the past few weeks sinces there has been some great drugstore sales on make-up. About 2-3 weeks ago, Maybelline cosmetics were on sale in Rite Aid and I wanted to give them a try since I heard good reviews on them. So here's what I bought.

Maybeline Color Sensational Lipsticks infrom Left to Right: Pink Please(025), Warm Me Up (235), Park Ave Peach (535), and Blushing Brunette (245)

They first color is called Pink Please. It's a very creamy light pink/peach with some red/brown undertones. I heard great things about this online and I am happy that I bought it since it's a bit different than the other ones I got. This is the kind of pink that doesn't wash me out and can be paired with almost any gloss. It has no shimmer in it also. I love it.

The next color I got is called Warm Me Up. I found it funny that it has that name since it reminded me of MAC's Warm Me Up. It's a brown/mauve color with no shimmer in it. I havn't compared it to MAC's Warm Me Up but I think MAC's is a bit more peachy.

The next color I got is called Park Ave. Peach. I absolutley love this color. It's a coral/peach/brown color. Once again this one does not contain any shimmers. If you love corals, then you'll love this one!

The last color I got is called Blushing Brunette. THIS COLOR IS MY FAVORITE! out of all four of them. I could wear this all the time. I've been wearing this a lot lately. It feels like a lustre formula and has a shimmer/shine to it. The color (brown/pink) is a bit darker than my normal lipsticks but I definately recommend this one!

MAC Art Supplies Collection Review

So yesterday I purchased Greasepaint sticks and pearlglide eyeliners from the MAC Art Supplies collection which came out yesterday. The collection also had these lipstain markers but I decided to skip those because they didn't seem very useful to have. So here's what I got.

Pearlglide Eyeliners
Industrial LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a periwinkle grey which looks dark blue but has very bright light blue glitters. When flashing with a camera, it seems lighter than the original color. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Undercurrent LE: From the Art Supplies Collection.It's a blue teal will very bright golden glitters, Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Designer Purple LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a bright grape-purple with pink and purple glitters. Very unique and great to have. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Petrol Blue LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a dark navy blue with turquoise/cyan blue sparkles and glitters. I love this, it's very unique from other blue liners. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.

From top to bottom: Designer Purple, Petrol Blue, Industrial, Undercurrent

Sorry for the smudged swatch near Petrol Blue, it was from an eyeliner swatch.

Greasepaint Sticks
Below Ground LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a blackened bronze that seems like a gold base. It's very nice to have for lighter colored Mineralize eyeshadows or for under your eyes.
Dirty LE: From the Art Supplies Collection.It's a blackened taupe with pearl, silver, gold glitters. It looks amazing for creasing a neutral eyeshadow look or for brown eyeshadows.
Slick Black LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a true carbon black with no glitters or shimmer. This is great to pair with Mineralize eyeshadows, especially the ones from the MAC Styleblack collection.

From top to bottom: Slick Black, Below Ground, Dirty

The special thing about these Greasepaint sticks is that they have a sharpener that you can pull off at the end. It's very cute and small, I didn't get to test them out yet but I will test them out soon.

Thanks for reading :)
