Cirque The Kontiki Collection Swatches and Review

Cirque Kontiki Collection

Cirque The Kontiki Collection for summer 2014 features three new limited edition lacquers.

This collection, which launches August 5th on Cirque’s site (also see their stockists page), features shades reminiscent of hot summer days and long summer nights. Each shade has a vivid jelly formula, and features incredible color-shifting shimmer.

Because these are jellies, and I like my jellies to be as opaque as humanly possible, I used three coats for each shade to build up the opacity and cover my nail lines. You could use two coats though if you don’t need them as opaque as I do.

Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation

Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation

Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation is a new item that I recently came across whilst at Sephora.

These new lip colors come in six shades and a clear shade which are made to be worn alone or under a lip gloss. They have a twist-up feature and a precision slanted tip. To find the perfect nude for you, you are supposed to choose a shade which matches your lip shade, not your skin. They have a VERY matte finish, which I shall talk about more soon.

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil Swatches and Review

Urban Decay 24-7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil

The Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil is brand new to the scene and she comes in five beautiful shades.

Previously we saw the shade Black Velvet, which is the only other 24/7 Velvet shade. Because they loved that one so much they decided to create a new line for us liner lovers! These pencils differ from the regular 24/7 ones because they have a super velvety feel, which is super soft and really great for smudging out to create a smoky eye. They are waterproof and contain jojoba oil for hydration. They’re actually so creamy and soft you have to be careful not to push too hard when using them, lest the tip break off (I speak from experience).

As per usual, the barrel shade matches the shade of the liner and these have gunmetal accents, unlike the regular 24/7 liners, which have silver accents.
