Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer

Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer

Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer is a new and limited edition collection coming out at CVS stores soon (if not already.)

These have a super glittery multi-dimensional foil finish, and each one is named after a city in Italy.

When I first heard about these I was wondering just how foil-like they would really be, and after swatching them I feel like they aren’t very foil-like. Shimmery? Yes. Glittery? Yes. Colorful? Yes. But foil? Nope. They do have a pretty nice formula though, and I only needed two coats for each one. I didn’t have any issues with them, other than some mess with removal.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella 2015 Swatches

Morgan Taylor Cinderella 2015

The Morgan Taylor Cinderella 2015 collection is a collaboration with Gelish and in conjunction with Disney’s live-action Cinderella film, which comes out March 13th.

There are six new shades from Morgan Taylor for the collection and nine from Gelish. I decided to focus only on the Morgan Taylor ones because I never wear gel polish plus I think most people are interested in these ones.

Usually for me Morgan Taylor lacquers are incredibly perfect in the formula department. A few of these didn’t live up to my high expectations, but there wasn’t a dud or a bad one in the bunch. Most just required three coats rather than the typical two.

Milani Matte Rose Powder Blush

Milani Matte Rose Powder Blush

Milani Matte Rose Powder Blush is coming back for 2015 in case you missed the limited edition releases which I wrote about here and here.

These powder blushes, which were inspired by the rose gardens in Milan, come in three matte shades. They contain real rose petals that are crushed and micro-milled into the powder. They’re super soft, very pigmented and obviously extremely gorgeous to look at.

Wet n Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Color for 2015

Wet n Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Color

Well it’s Monday yet again, I hope you survived the weekend and had some fun/relaxation/excitement!

Today I’ve got the new Wet n Wild Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Color shades, which are Walgreens exclusives. I was super excited to see these. In fact out of all the new Wet n Wild releases, this is what excited me the most. Sadly, they didn’t live up to the possibilities I had for them.

These chunky crayons, which don’t need sharpening since they twist-up, have a velvet-like matte texture. The caps match the shade inside, which is a nice touch. They also have a matte texture on the packaging, which I also really like. But the formula leaves much to be desired. They are really quite sheer for what I expected and they don’t apply very evenly either. Some of them I had to apply for what seemed like an eternity before they showed up on my lips. Many of the shades look very similar when on my lips also. They definitely feel like mattes too, and not in a good way. There isn’t much hydration going on so my lips felt fairly dry after wearing one of them for just an hour.

Milani Moisture Matte Color Statement Lipstick for Spring 2015

Milani Moisture Matte Color Statement Lipstick for Spring 2015

Happy Friday, we made it!

Today I’ve got the new Milani Moisture Matte Color Statement Lipstick shades for spring 2015.

There are eight new matte shades which are infused with grape seed for extra hydration. They are made to be smear-proof and long-wearing, alongside being more comfortable on the lips than a traditional matte lipstick. Please ignore the two first colors in this photo and the one below. They sneaked into my package somehow and I took photos before I caught them!
