Pür Cosmetics Eye Polish Swatches and Review

Pur-Cosmetics-Eye-Polish

I recently got a chance to play around with some of Pür Cosmetics‘ popular Eye Polishes. In short, they are awesome!

Pur-Cosmetics-Eye-Polish

What I found very interesting about the Eye Polishes is that there’s a net material that sits on top of the actual product. I had never seen such a thing before. Needless to say, I was intrigued! Another thing that caught my attention is the fact that the shadows are pretty moist.

Here you can see (hopefully!) that the product has a bit of a liquid/cream consistency. However, once the Eye Polishes are applied, they dry almost instantaneously and leave behind super shimmery colors.

These bad boys can be used in so many different ways. They can be applied as a base, to amplify your eye shadow. They can be worn as a top coat for dramatic and sultry makeup looks. Or, they can be used as an eyeliner. So many options. The choice is yours!

Here are swatches of five out of six of the different Eye Polish colors. From top to bottom they are: Caviar, Suede, Velvet, Silk & Cashmere.

I’m Back to My Long Hair Don’t Care Situation

Anyone who has been around me for more than one day, knows that I like to change my hair up quite a bit (Sometimes twice in one day. But who’s going to check me, boo?).

I’ve rocked the short cut for longer than I’m comfortable mentioning, so it was definitely time for a change! *Whips out Arjuni hair stash*. Why hello there!

Here are a few pics of my latest “do”, for your viewing pleasure (Please be warned that I did NOT bring out any leave out because I am, in fact, a lazy bum…but again…who’s going to check me, boo?!):

MAC’s Magenta Lip Pencil + Heroine Lipstick [Product Review]

POOHeroineLipstick

Along with Currant, Chestnut and Nightmoth, MAC’s Magenta lip pencil should be a staple in any makeup wearer’s tool kit. It’s so vibrant, colorful, smooth, and the best thing about it is that it can be worn by itself or paired with a lipstick for a nice color boost.

My favorite lipstick to pair Magenta with is Heroine.

 Here is a look at the Magenta lip pencil on its own.

And here is a side-by-side comparison of the two. Completely different colors and hues, but when combined together, it’s magical!

Freeman Facial Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber) Product Review

If you have never tried a facial mask, you are SERIOUSLY missing out on something amazing. Facial masks do a really great job of digging deep and removing the dirt/makeup that regular face-washing products can’t get to.

I happened upon Freeman’s Facial Peel-Off Mask (Cucumber) by accident. However, it was a moment of serendipity that has made my life and face so much better. What I LOVE about this particular mask is that it goes on clear and moist. However, within 5 – 10 minutes, it hardens, and you can then peel it off (thus the name). Maybe I’m weird, but peeling it off of my face is SO FUN! It’s equal parts amazing and disgusting!

Another great thing is that you’ll be able to see/feel the results immediately. Your skin will feel really smooth and appear very clear. I usually put a SMALL amount of coconut oil on my face after this process to replenish any moisture that’s been lost. After using the product yesterday, I went to my local MAC store and received so many compliments on my skin. It was kind of weird because that NEVER happens. This product is LITERALLY a liquid miracle!

But don’t take my word for it, head on over to your nearest drugstore and pick up a bottle for yourself. You will not regret it!

What You Should Know

Revlon’s Berry Haute Lipstick Review

 

PofOBerryHaute2Slightly after Strawberry Sour Patch Straws, Revlon’s Berry Haute lipstick may be the best thing to ever happen to me. Seriously! If you are in search of a subtle, yet impactful purple lipstick for the fall season, this one is it! This lipstick can be so many things, depending on the lip liner and base color that you choose to pair with it.

I was going for a low key, come-hither-but-still-keep-your-distance look, so I paired the Berry Haute lipstick with MACs Chestnut and Currant lip pencils (I went very EASY on the Currant). Instant lip magic!
