Description:  A creamy lip gloss that provide high shine and full coverage. 
ABH lipglosses also have a wonderful scent which reminds me of red velvet cupcakes- definitely a dessert like scent.

Final Thoughts: I absolutely love these and definitely plan on picking up a few more colors!  Definitely recommend!

bareMinerals Pop of Passion in Candy Pop : Photos and Swatches

bareMinerals recently came out with their new Pop of Passion Lip balms, which are Lip-Oil Balms.
Price:  $16
What bareMinerals claims: "This oil-rich formula delivers luscious color and slick shine with a comfortable color-stain. Melt-in moisture provides hydration while passion fruit seed oil with vitamin E helps nourish."
My Thoughts: Yes, when first applied you see instant shine and comfort on the lips. I was pleasantly surprised with the color payoff, I was expecting a more sheer color, but the lip balm in Candy pop actually provided light/medium coverage. When the product begins to wear off, you are left with a sort of popsicle lip stain, but in a good way. I did notice that when the lip color fades my lips did feel a little dry, so at that point I usually add a gloss over. 
Final: I do like this product, but would not use in place of a lip balm. At first the product is hydrating, but feels dry once it starts to wear off. I use this more as a lipstick/gloss.

Elf Blush Palette in Light : Swatches

Last month while walking through the makeup aisle of Target (because who doesn't) I spotted some new goodies from Elf Cosmetics, the new Blush Palette definitely caught my eye and I decided to give it a go. It comes in two versions, light and dark. I went for the light palette, mainly because I was intrigued by the coral/peachy shades. 
Info: Retailers: Elf Cosmetics, Target Price: $6
Here are the swatches:

Swatches top row left to right, bottom row left to right

As you can see the palette come with 4 shades, a bright pink blush, a terracotta shade, a rose pink blush, and a perfect peach colored blush (which is my favorite of the four). The palette actually surprised me, the blushes are quite pigmented and for $6 not a bad deal at all!

Lorac Alter Ego Dream Girl Eye Shadow Palette: Pictures and Swatches

The new Lorac Alter Ego Dream Girl Palette comes with 10 beautiful shades. It is easy to create a natural look or a vibrant look with this palette!

I've been wearing this palette for the last 3-4 days and am absolutely loving it! Like I said this palette and be worn very naturally or you can add a pop of color using the blue (which is very pigmented), or add the purple or green to the lower lash line to add a beautiful soft look that' is still wearable for an everyday look.
