Milani Color Perfect Lipstick for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Milani Color Perfect Lipstick

New from Milani this year are eight new additions to their Color Perfect Lipstick range. These will be exclusive to CVS stores and hopefully out soon!

These lipsticks don’t look like that standard ones when you open the top. They are kind of geometric looking. Futuristic! They have a contoured tip for easier application and are super smooth and creamy on the lips. They feel very moisturizing and really comfortable. There is one thing though…

They have a very specific floral scent and taste. Very lipstick-y. So if you have an aversion to scent/taste, these might not be for you.

The Look For Less: Issue 1

Hello!

Welcome to a new series I am starting called The Look For Less. In this series I will be comparing a higher end item with either a dupe (or something very similar) of a less expensive item.

Last week I reviewed the new NARS Thakoon Collection and one of the colors, Lal Mirchi, stood out for me. However not only is it a bit expensive, but it happens to be the one only sold at their Bleecker Street store. Not easy to get. But I have you covered!

China Glaze Oh How Street It Is is from the 2009 Kicks collection, and is a very similar orange/red shade. Both are bright and have a creme finish. While Oh How Street It Is is a little thinner of a formula and you may need three coats, it’s very similar to Lal Mirchi. It’s a little more orange than orange/red like Lal Mirchi, so not a dupe, but similar!

Not the Most Flattering Photo…

Caught Chewy mid-yawn the other day. He’s none too thrilled about me posting this on the internet.

NYX Spring Fling Palette

NYX Cosmetics Spring Fling Palette might be the perfect palette for those who love pale pastel shades in the spring and summer.

Spring Fling features twelve matte and pearl eyeshadows, two blushes, two lip glosses and highlight/contour powders. All of this comes wrapped up in a really pretty heavy cardboard palette with cherry blossoms on the cover and inside. It also has a nice large mirror.

Megan Miller Collection Swatches & Review

Megan Miller Collection

The Megan Miller Collection of nail polishes was started with a vision of “rustic, natural elegance”. Each polish comes in a custom designed round bottle with an eco-friendly cork top. Each bottle is tied with a natural Raffia ribbon as well, making them super cute and unique compared to any other brand out there.

Megan Miller is a cruelty free brand, made in the USA, and big-three free as well.

There are currently just ten shades offered but they come in creme, shimmery and sheer finishes.
