Milani Gel Powder Eyeshadow- These little babies catch my eye everytime I walk into Walgreens. I haven’t been able to pick any up yet though because I haven’t seen enough reviews about them.
They look so velvety and have a very nice selection of colors to choose from.
My only question is, are they pigmented?

Loving this natural look for summer.

The "no makeup" makeup look can be so effortless on these hot days when you don’t feel like doing anything extreme.

BB Cream is great in the summer because it’s so light weight and covers any flaws, without clogging your pores. 

Waterproof mascara and brows are important for anyone who is afraid they will accidentally smudge makeup all over throughout the day. I especially love Makeup Forever’s “Aqua Brow” formula.

Top the look off with a little bit of bronzer in place of blush, for that summer glow, and a nude lip plumping gloss to show off the lips and really complete that natural beauty look. 

I wear this makeup look pretty often when I don’t feel like getting ready for the day, yet still want to look presentable. 

Send me your “no makeup” looks and I will feature them in this post!

Stay hydrated this summer, that is the most important beauty tip of all! 

Xoxo Glitzy.

Harsh chemicals found in makeup.

Lately I’ve been researching all of the negative and harsh chemicals that can be found in makeup, and I went and threw out a lot of products I didn’t agree with. Hopefully this will lead to less rash irritations on my skin and eye lids.

What skin friendly/natural makeup do you use?

Won’t Buy Wednesday! 

I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while and when I saw this sitting on my makeup desk, I knew I had to write something about it.

This is a new liquid eyeliner from Revlon. It’s called “Skinny” in the color Black Out. It was $6 at Target and a complete waste of money, in my opinion.

I am very picky with eyeliner, I wear it everyday and I’m always on the hunt to find cheap alternatives seeing as how I go through it so often. This one claims to help you achieve the perfect cat eye with the skinny brush. The brush sucks, its one of those little bristle ones that just flops when you begin to apply it. The formula is not consistent, it’s too streaky and it does not make the perfect cat eye. I admit the color is a very true black, but only after one dip in the pot. The formula must have some sort of ingredient that makes my eyes allergic because my eyes watered and itched all day, and with the watery eyes came the smearing. 

I don’t know, I just didn’t like this at all. So far the only eyeliner that I will always re-purchase is Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, but I want to find a cheaper drugstore liner. 

Any thoughts?

Check out some of these gorgeous lip swatches that Kat Von D posted on her Instagram earlier!

These swatches are from her new Studded Kiss Lipstick collection, available now at Sephora.
All together there are 30 shades to choose from and these puppies supposedly have 10 hour staying power.

Now I know this lipstick collection is going to be a problem for me because I literally like every single color I see.
Especially the royal blue on the right which is named after her cute cat “Poe”.

Would you try out these daring and crazy colors?

On July 16th Urban Decay will release a Pulp Fiction inspired collection!
Love that Mia Wallace red? Well now you can get the lip liner and lipstick, but not only that, you’ll also get an inspired eyeshadow palette, nail polish, and a heavy metal glitter liner!
Pulp Fiction is the business and I’m happy Urban Decay decided to create this collection!

How interesting does Marge’s collection look for MAC?
Love the lashes already, but I’m interested in seeing more!
I hope that’s not a bright yellow lip glass!

Juicy Couture is a brand that sure knows what they’re doing when it comes to perfume.

The newest scent to be released this fall is called Viva La Juicy Gold Couture. 

First of all, their packaging always gets me,  How cute is that polka dot bow, and of course we have to have the famously shaped bottle! Second, let me talk about the notes in this perfume… A succulent blend of wild berries with touches of honeysuckle, melted caramel, vanilla, and a twist of gold amber to create a flirty, delicious scent.

If it smells similar to the original Viva La Juicy then I know I will be a fan of this one. 

It will start selling early at Nordstrom’s and will run for $72. 

How many variations of the Viva La Juicy can this company come up with? These things are like Pokemon.. Gotta catch ‘em all..

Are you tired of perfume designers re-promoting the same scents and just slappin’ a different name on the bottle? Or do you enjoy the similarities in your favorite scents?

I love Makeup Forever’s HD Foundation!

This is the first and only high end foundation I own and I can’t get enough. I didn’t use it when I first bought it, but now that I’ve started wearing it more often I think it is the perfect coverage!

I also enjoy how it sets on my face. It’s been about 6 hours of wearing my makeup and honestly my face still looks pretty flawless, without any powder to touch it up.

Next on my list to try for high end foundations is CK One, Tarte Amazonian Clay, and NARS Sheer Glow. 

Also, does anyone like powder foundation?

I’m dying to smell this new fragrance, My NY by Donna Karan!

I’m a big fan of DKNY “Be Delicious” which is pretty familiar in its famous apple shaped bottle, so i’m excited to see what this one offers.

The bottle on this one is seriously super cutely shaped and it’s pink!, One of the top notes is pink pepper and I absolutely love that smell combined with sweet scents. Other mentionable notes are raspberries, vanilla, freesia, and creamy musks. I imagine this to smell very girly. ♥

It is now available over at Ulta and Sephora, and will retail for $88.

Go give your nose a sniff!
