Review: Physicians Formula Nude Shimmer Pallete

First off please excuse my dry skin :( winter always does this to my skin... I hate the cold! lol... Ok on to the review. I purchased this palette from the drugstore a couple of weeks ago and it is the Physicians Formula Nude Shimmer Palette. My initial thoughts were that the packaging was really cute (I'm a sucker for cute packaging) and that the colours reminded me of Urban Decay's Naked Palette but more shimmery haha. Here is what I liked and disliked about the palette:

  • Cute packaging
  • Eyeshadows came in trios for a neutral look, daytime look and a more dramatic look
  • The amount of shimmer in the eyeshadows was alright
  • They could be used dry or wet
  • Paraben free!
  • The pigmentation of the lighter colours weren't that great (dry) at least on my skintone (NC35 in MAC)
  • The applicator that came with it (I usually don't like the applicators that come with palettes anyways... except the Naked 2 one)
  • Some of the shades were hard to get into with a brush without touching the other shades because they were quite thin
So, overall that is what I felt about the palette. I think its a good drugstore purchase if you are looking for a neutral palette that is at a relatively good price. I got mine on sale for about $9. I overall like Physicians Formula as a drugstore brand but they can be at the higher end of the spectrum as drugstore products go. Look out for sales on them though because they have some really great products :) 

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts on this product and if you have any other products you would like me to check out :)

Review/My Collection: Revlon Lip Butters

From left to right: Berry Smoothie, Sweet Tart, Cupcake, Strawberry Shortcake, Creme Brulee

Revlon Lipbutters have been pretty popular recently and over the past few months I have been collecting some. At first I was a bit skeptical on how good they were and watched a few reviews where people were saying everything from they were drying to they are awesomeee! The first lipbutter I purchased was in Sweet Tart which is a bright pink. I tried it for a couple days and did notice some drying but nothing to big. The color payoff of the lipbutter is pretty good and it lasted a good amount of time on my lips. After a mixed experience with the Sweet Tart shade I decided to purchase a few others to test them out and to see if they all had that drying effect on my lips. I found that the other colours: Berry Smoothie, Cupcake, Strawberry Shortcake & Creme Brulee were all pretty great! These colours had a bit more shimmer in them than the Sweet Tart but they weren't as drying on my lips and I absolutely lovee the colours! Overall, I do think that these are pretty good lipbutters... good colour payoff, great colour selection, and the longevity is fairly good. However, for pure moisturizing I would rather go for a real lip balm or Maybeline's Baby Lips =)

Haul: Shop MAC, Cook MAC

  • Call Me Bubbles Eyeshadow Palette
  • Naughty Saute Lipstick
  • Quick Sizzle Lipstick
  • Cremeblend blush in Florida (My first MAC cremeblend blush!)
I am really liking the colours in this collection. My favorite purchase from this collection would have to be the Call Me Bubbles palette because the colors are amazing for Spring!

OPI Nail Polish Haul: Nicki Minaj Collection

I bought two new nail polish colors from OPI. They are from the Nicki Minaj collection. The color that I am wearing on my nails is Pink Friday and the other polish I purchased was Fly. I loveee pink polishes and turqouise/green blue colors. I have not tried Fly yet but Pink Friday is such a pretty barbie pink color and it was pretty opaque when I put it on. Here I am wearing two coats of Pink Friday with my favorite Seche Vite top coat.
