Swatches

I find that a lot of drugstore brands are really stepping up their game these days. Maybe not packaging wise, but with their eye-catching shades and surprisingly nice quality. I’d still like to see some pretty packaging, but I suppose it really doesn’t matter if the quality is there along with nice shade selections.

e.l.f. had recently sent me a nice box of goodies. This beautiful little duo in the shade Tea For Two along with another in the shade Peach Squad really stood out. I just couldn’t wait to dig in and swatch them. The duos come with a shimmery shade and a matte shade. I found them both to be soft and nicely pigmented. The shimmery shade was more pigmented than the matte and it pops even more when you apply with a dampened brush. The matte was a little on the powdery side and needed some building up, but it built up rather nicely. You can probably tell from my swatch.

Overall, I’m really impressed with these duos. I think the shades are gorgeous and compliment each other nicely. You can see a look I created with Tea For Two below. e.l.f. suggests applying the matte shade on the lid and the shimmery shade in the crease. I didn’t apply the shimmery shade with a dampened brush because I wanted to go with a much softer look. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

You can find these nifty little duos on the e.l.f. Cosmetics website. There are 5 shades to choose from and they are $3.00 each.

Swatches: M$LF, Cougar, Low Cut, Stacy’s Mom

About a month back Lime Crime had a really sweet deal going on. I went a little crazy and grabbed quite a few Velvetines including the M$LF Velvetines Set. I loved the first one I tried out so much that I just couldn’t wait to place another order. I like to wait for good deals though. Or new releases. And boy did I luck out! I believe I paid half price for the set. It’s originally $50.00.

The M$LF Velvetines set comes in a cute pink box. It looks like a cigarette box. I’m not a smoker, but the box is still super cute. The set contains 4 Velvetines. All of them applied nicely and evenly. For the most part I did find them to be very long lasting. I also found them to be some of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried. And they smell like cake!

Cougar is described as a grey taupe. This is the only shade I didn’t get a picture of. I didn’t care for how it looked on me. I might give it another go with a different eye look.

Low Cut

Low Cut is described as a true terracotta. I’m really loving this shade lately.

M$LF

MSLF is described as a Rose Nude. I found that this looked nothing like the swatch posted on the website. Actually NONE of the lipsticks looked anything like the swatches on the website. But this one bummed me out the most. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a gorgeous nude shade. But I was hoping for that really nice MLBB shade that’s depicted on the website. Instead this is a true (barely there) nude.

Stacy’s Mom

Stacy’s Mom is described as a sugar plum mauve. I actually prefer the actual shade of this over the website swatch. I’m digging the muted plum look on me. My only issue with this shade is that it wasn’t even filled all the way. You can see in the photo below. I’m really bummed because this was the shade I was most excited about.

Lime Crime M$LF Velvetines Set

Overall, I think it’s a really cute set and I was lucky to get it at a really great price. However, if you’re hoping for those vibrant shades depicted on the website, you might be disappointed. Because for me they were WAY off!

Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

Swatches: Rose Gold, Hibiscus Bloom, Malibu Soleil, Beach Nectar

I actually purchased the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette back in May when it was first released. I’ve had it on my desk ever since. I usually leave the things I have to blog about piled up on top of my desk so it’s gotten a lot of action. I usually walk over to my toolbox to look for face products, but since this palette has been within reach I haven’t bothered to use anything else. Which isn’t a bad thing. A bit lazy maybe.

Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

I don’t know much about Chrissy Teigen so I can’t say that I’m a fan. But I thought the palette was very pretty and I was really digging the shades. It includes a blush in the shade Hibiscus Bloom which is a golden pink coral, a bronzer in the shade Malibu Soleil which is a medium amber, a highlighter in the shade Rose Gold which is a subtle gold with rose, and another highlighter in the shade Beach Nectar which is a juicy apricot with gold.

The shades are all very nicely pigmented. They all applied and blended beautifully. It’s a really beautiful palette that offers a more natural glow. The shades really do compliment each other nicely. Even the bronzer. Although there have been times I was in a rush and opted just for the blush and highlighter and still ended up with a really beautiful look.

You can see this palette in action below. I’m wearing Rose Gold on the inner corner of my eyes and Beach Nectar on my cheeks, cupid’s bow, and nose.
