Maybelline Colorblur Swatches and Review

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls

I have a couple of the new Maybelline Colorblur Cream Matte Lip Pencils to show you today! They come in 10 beautiful shades.


These lip pencils are PIGMENTED!  Like seriously opaque and beautiful.  They glide on super creamy and smooth and dry to a matte finish.  On the other end of the pencil there is a silicone smudger that you can use to blur the product from the middle of your lips to the outer edge.

They have really great staying power, I ate and drank while wearing it and didn't even need to touch up.  I actually needed to remove them with makeup remover to get it off!


I have three of the Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Glosses in Just a Glimmer, Lilac Lumi and A Wink of Pink.  There are 12 shades in the collection, in 3 finishes: Creams, Shimmers and Jellies.



These glosses have a clear (jelly) tinted base with iridescent glitter.  The glitter does give a slight texture. They are super shiny on the lips but don't really give any color payoff.  I think these would look very pretty layered over lipstick.


 I am so excited about these Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencils.  These are sooo creamy and pigmented.  They glide on so smooth, no tugging whatsoever.  I don't know about you but I am always on the hunt for a great liner pencil.  I can't stand pencils that I have to sharpen, so the fact that you can roll these ones up is a huge bonus!


I will definitely be picking one up in black as that is my fave color to wear.  The Lasting Drama pencils boast up to 16 hours of waterproof wear.  I didn't have any fading or smudging and had to remove this with my makeup remover!


Maybelline products are available in most drugstores including Walmart, Superstore and London Drugs.

Zoya Flair Fall Collection 2015

PRESS SAMPLES

Hiya Dolls!

I get to share the Zoya Flair Collection 2015 with you today!  It is the second Zoya Fall Collection 2015, you can see my swatches of the Focus Collection here.  The Focus Collection was all cremes and the Flair Collection are all shimmers.  They are so gorgeous and they have great formulas, just like the Focus Collection.

First up is the beautiful Estelle.  She is described as a blue on blue liquid metal with a blackened base.  The formula was so easy to work with, I used two thin coats.  I doubled up on my base coat with this one as it is very pigmented and may stain. 



Tris is a blackened brushed nickel liquid metal.  It had a slight green tint on my nails in certain lighting.  This is the only polish in this collection that I found to be a bit thin.  It is still easy to work with though as the second coat evened everything out perfectly.



 My favorite of the collection is Cinnamon, a divine bronze liquid metal.  This one is so perfect for Fall, the shimmer in there is amazing.  Perfect formula, two thin coats.



 Giada is even more gorgeous on the nails than it is in the bottle!  There is so much shimmer just dancing around in there!  She is a stunner for sure, super vampy and edgy.  Two thin coats.



 Aggie is described as a gold holo flip liquid metal with bronze micro glitter.  This one really surprised me, I wasn't expecting to like this but I think it is so pretty.  I read on Zoya's website that this can be used as a layering polish, imagine how gorgeous one coat of Aggie would be over a black creme?  I am going to have to swatch that!




Ember is a fiery red liquid metal.  This color is so stunning and this shimmer in there makes it look like it is lit from within!  Two thin, easy coats.




 So which one is your favorite?  Will you be picking any of these up for Fall?  Available at Zoya.com

Zoya Focus Fall Collection 2015

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I have the brand new Zoya Fall Collection called Focus to share with you today.  This collection is gorgeous and totally "Fall-ish"!  If you pick up this collection, you will be blown away by the formula.  Every single one of these were amazing, so easy to work with and if you are careful enough, they are all a one-coater!  Seriously!

 Desiree is a chic sable-brown creme.  It is a very deep shade, but you can definitely see that it's brown and not black, which I love!




Charli is a dusty taupe creme with a hint of green.  That hint of green makes it a unique shade to my collection!



 Lidia is a stunning eggplant purple creme.  It is so deep and rich looking on the nail!



Sia is a true royal blue creme that is absolutely stunning on the nails!  You will need to double up on your base coat to avoid staining with this beauty as it is highly pigmented.



 Janel is a deep cinnamon-red cream with warm undertones.  I love how rich this red is!



Hannah is a clear, classic-red creme.  It has a bit of a jelly finish, so I used two coats for this swatch to build it up a little.



Which one is your favorite, ladies?  Mine is Desiree, I will be wearing that chocolate shade all thru out Autumn!

Check back later this week to see the second part of Zoya's Fall Collection called Flair!

OPI Infinite Shine Summer Collection 2015

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I have the twelve new polishes that make up the Infinite Shine Summer Collection 2015 from OPI to share with you!  There are so many gorgeous shades in this collection, some brights that just scream Summer, some pale-soft nudes and metallic gold and silver for some sparkle.

Patience Pays Off is a lovely nude pink creme.  I needed three thin coats of this as I was having a hard time with streakiness.  I ended up wearing this polish for eight days though and still didn't want to take it off!



Bee Mine Forever is a darling honey-yellow creme.  The formula was pretty good, just a little patchiness here and there.  I used two coats for my swatch.



 S-ageless Beauty is a pastel shade of sage green.  This is so soft and lovely, a really nice way to wear green!  Formula was fine, I used two coats.



Follow Your Bliss is a fun playful pink creme.  The formula on this beauty was fantastic, two thin easy coats.



You're Blushing Again is my fave of the whole collection!  It is a such a great nude pink creme.  The formula was so easy to use, two thin coats.  This is going to be my go-to nude!



This bright tangerine creme is called The Sun Never Sets.  This orange screams Summer to me!  The formula was a little streaky, but two thick-ish coats gave me good opacity.



 Wild Blue Yonder is a stunning bight sky blue creme.  This is sooooo pigmented, it's almost a one coater.  Definitely double up on your base coat with this shade and apply very carefully around your cuticles or you'll end up looking a little 'smurfy'.




Purpletual Emotion is a deep but still bright shade of eggplant.  I wasn't wowed with this shade in the bottle, but once it's on the nails...FABULOUS!  Formula is amazing, again almost a one coater.



Lavendurable...... is anyone else freaking out over this adorable shade?  Such a beauty, I feel like everyone is going to love this sweet lavender.  I used two thick-ish coats for my swatch and this is currently on my toes for Summer!



To Be Continued... is a gorgeous periwinkle blue creme.  Another beauty that I think everyone will want in their collection!  I used two coats, but probably needed three. 



 Silver on Ice is a shimmery metallic silver.  I almost got away with one coat of this, but ended up doing two in hopes of getting rid of some of those streaks.  No luck there, the streaks are inevitable.



Enter the Golden Era is a pearly gold metallic.  I ended up really loving this one me!  I used two thin coats and while there were still some visible streaks, it's not as bad as Silver on Ice.



So what do you guys think of this Collection?  I think OPI did a great job and that there are lots of options for everyone.  I definitely have a few favorites!

This Collection was available as of July 2015 at select salons.
