Disney Villains Leviathan | Ursula Shimmering Powder | Review + Swatch

Image
Who doesn't want to glow? It's time to show you something that may just change your highlight game forever...this product is available at walgreens only for $3.49 (limited edition).
Do you see those swatches?Top is a little product spilled outBottom is blended inIt is SO intenseCan be used anywhere you would normally use a pigment (pretty much everywhere)As a cheek highlightInner CornerOn top of an eye lookLidetc.A tiny bit goes a long wayI wouldn't apply directly to the skinTap some product out onto back of hand or other surface first Overall, This product is crazy extreme in the shimmer department, exactly like the name would suggest. It is a little dry, but it is just a powder with nothing to bind it together. If you like what you see in the swatch, and can still find it--pick it up!

Disney Villains Lipsticks | Potion, Dragon's Lair, & Majestic | Review + Swatch

Image
Happy Halloween! Today's review is on the Disney lipsticks for Walgreens. These retail for $3.49 each.




All swatches were done in one pass, even the lip onesVery pigmentedNot true mattesYou can see it's more of a satin or cremePotion and Majestic are very similarYou wouldn't need both unless you wanted them for packagingA little pricey considering the powder face products are the same priceFeels like a lipstick on the lipsNot too waxyA little slippery, not like a matte that setsWears the way a lipstick usually does, touch up mid day / after eating Overall, These are super cute for the packaging, and still pigmented. Other than pigmentation the formula is nothing stellar. Two shades are also very similar, potion might be a touch more berry red. My favorite of the three is Dragon's Lair, because it is the most unique.

I wanted to wait to do this post since the hype has been crazy! I love Vegas Nay on Instagram, and her collaboration is just as perfect as she is. This set retails for $45, and is flying off the shelves fast. Since mine arrived in the mail, I've been using it pretty much everyday!  Chandelier is a satin, the other two are total mattes First two are shimmer, Jackpot is matte with glitters All three are cool toned shimmers

Image
Supposedly the last day to order this limited edition shadow is today, so I wanted to get up my review with swatches. This is a fantastic duo chrome eyeshadow by Looxi Beauty, and it retails for only $5 in the pan.  Slightly smaller than the traditional pan shadow, but only in depth Swatch in all it's glory  Texture: Very silky smoothApplication: Pigmented right off the batDuo chrome yes this plays a role in how much I love a shadowWears all day like most shadows, especially with a primerSlightly more purple and less blue than in the pan Overall, GOOO snatch up this shadow before it's gone! I love anything duo chrome, and this is definitely one you do not want to miss. Also, it is a dupe for an Urban Decay eyeshadow ;)
