Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe

I recently purchased my first ever Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eyeshadow and I am simply impressed and bummed out that I didn't give these a try years ago! The shade I have is #35 Tough As Taupe, and it is a beautiful gray color, which can be build-able to a deeper gray.

Maybelline does classify these color tattoos as cream gel shadows but the consistency is a lot thicker than any cream or gel shadows that I own. I actually prefer the thickness of these shadows because I find that it allows powdered shadows to stick on better for a deeper and long lasting color intensity. I do wear these color tattoos alone but do prefer to top them off with powdered shadows, to increase the longevity of the wear.

I find that when I wear the color tattoos alone, it begins to crease after about 8 hours, but if I use these as sort of like a base or primer and top it off with powdered shadows then it pretty much lasts over 12 hours without creasing. FYI, I have not tested these out for 24 hours...I  mean really who wears makeup for 24 hours? Nonetheless, I do love this product and love how it looks alone and even as a base. As seen below in the swatches, the eyeshadow is intensified when applied over the color tattoo.

I do apply the color tattoos with my fingers because I feel like I can control the amount of product I apply a lot better, and to me it applies more evenly and smoother with my fingers. Also, the finish seems to be matte, but a little bit of sheen can be seen depending on the lighting, which I love and it is why I picked this particular color up, since most of their other ones are metallic. Currently on the Maybelline website, they have 10 total colors, I know in the past they've had limited edition ones, and who knows maybe in the near future they will come out with more!

These generally retail for around $6.99, I purchased mine from Ulta when they had their 40% off sale, so I got this baby for a super affordable price! Currently these color tattoos are Buy One Get One 50% off at Ulta so if you're interested I suggest you check out the sale! Have you tried any of the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eye-shadows? Which colors and finish do you love the most?

Bath and Body Works: Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber Collection

Press Samples; Powered by Bath & Body Works
I've been currently addicted to the Bath and Body Works Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber Collection and today I wanted to share with you these amazing products and exactly why I love them!  I have the shower gel, body lotion, and the fragrance mist and I love how each product works so well with one another.

I start off with the Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber, Shea & Vitamin E infused Shower Gel. I love this product because a little bit of gel is all you need since it lathers so well! I love how moisturizing it feels, but also very refreshing to the skin! Retails $12.50.

Once out of the shower I use the Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber, also Shea & Vitamin E infused Body Lotion. This lotion feel amazing on the skin, particularly during these super hot sunny days because it offers a lot of hydration. My skin has been a little dry due to this sudden heat wave (90 degree weather) so this lotion has tremendously helped! It also dries super quickly which is what I love in a body lotion, because I can literally apply and be on the go! Retails $12.50.

Lastly, I spray the Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber Fine Fragrance Mist. This mist is the frosting to the perfect cupcake, it smells amazing and is long lasting as well! What I also love about it is that the scent is not too overpowering yet it is strong enough for people to notice how amazing it is! Retails $14.00.

The actual scent is amazing, it is floral with a sweet fruit kick to it; if you love sweet floral with Hawaiian scents then you will love this collection! Can we also talk about how adorable and super cute/feminine the packaging is? I love it!!! Currently this collection (along with many more products) are on sale on the BBW site where you can Buy 3 Get 2 FREE....AMAZING!! Please make sure to check it out!

My Recent Laura Geller Hautelook Purchase

If you've been following my blog for a while now then you know that I love the site Hautelook for their amazing deals and discounts. Recently a cosmetics brand that I've never tried but have heard raves about is Laura Geller, well was featured on Hautelook so I decided to make a small purchase. I purchased the Laura Geller Creme Couture Soft Touch Matte Lipsticks Trio and the Laura Geller Balance-n-Bronze with Brush in the color Fair.

The set of lipsticks was priced at $15 and I thought this was an amazing deal because one lipstick on the Laura Geller site goes for $18 meaning if I purchased all 3 of these lipsticks individually on her site I would have paid $54 instead of the $15! I tried these lipsticks and they feel amazing, super soft, hydrating, and completely matte. I wanted to do quick swatches in case any of you were interested in purchasing these on the Laura Geller site, or when they appear again on Hautelook.

From L to R: Sweet Peach, Mocha Rose, & Mocha Mauve.

From L to R: Sweet Peach, Mocha Rose, & Mocha Mauve.
I paid $12 for the Balance-n-Bronze set with brush, which is crazy because if you purchase the compact alone on the Laura Geller site you will pay $33 plus the brush alone is already $15, so I saved over 70% on both of my purchases (and yes ladies and gents these products are full size)! I haven't tried the compact but will report back with a quick review at a later time!

Color: Fair
Overall I am in love with Hautelook, I've been able to try out high end cosmetics without spending hundreds of dollars! Some brands that are generally available through Hautelook are Stila, Lorac, The Balm, Tarte, Urban Decay, and many more! Have you purchased anything from Hautelook recently? I can't resist a great beauty deal so I check it deal because items sell out fast!

Coastal Scents Creative Me 1 Palette -- Swatches & Review

If you're very close to purchasing the $49 Urban Decay Electric Palette I would suggest holding off and trying the Coastal Scents Creative Me 1 Palette which is only $14.95.  The Creative Me 1 Palette consists of 12 very bright colored shadows, ranging from yellows, greens, blues, and purples. I wont call this an exact dupe of the Urban Decay Electric Palette but if you're in the market for bright shadows this could be a great alternative.
Coastal Scents Creative Me 1 Palette Swatches & Review
Some of you may think these are way too bright but there are so many beautiful ways you can wear very bright shadows. You can do bright eyeliners with these shadows, on the bottom lash line, on the inner corner, all of which can add a fun yet subtle look to your eye-makeup! I personally do not wear these alone as just shadows except during a fun party or occasion like Halloween, just because they are so bright and not quite appropriate for my every day job (but on the weekends or when I'm having fun I'm all about these babies!!)
Coastal Scents Creative Me 1 Palette Swatches & Review
All the colors are very pigmented and the swatches below are literally from one swipe of product. In terms of longevity, these shadows do last all day including their vibrancy, as long as you use a primer, which I recommend anyways with any shadows. Some of the colors are a little bit powdery but that is the results of such high pigmentation. They are easy to work with, easy to blend, easy to apply, I truly do like this palette and it is pretty fun to play with!
Coastal Scents Creative Me 1 Palette Swatches & Review
This palette is already a pretty awesome deal at only $14.95 because if you purchase each shadow individually (which each retails for $1.95) you would spend over $23 just on the shadows alone. I purchased this palette when it was on sale for $9.95 which is amazing, just keep checking their site for deals like this! For additional product information please make sure to visit the Coastal Scents site.

Have you tried any of these drugstore foundations? I am hoping at least one of these will be a favorite, I have such a hard time finding a good shade match, and I'm so picky about the feel/texture of foundations so I am hoping these will work OK for me! Let me know if you've tried any of these and which are your favs or least favorites!
