Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder in Lit Review

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body in Lit ($30 US/$35 CAD) is described as a soft bronze shimmer with golden bronze sparkle. It comes in a beautiful sparkling bronze box. I love this packaging! It is so pretty, albeit a little bulky. The domed powder is on the top level with a mirror on the inside of the lid. The lower compartment hides a mini brush. Everything secures with magnetic closures. The powder has a dry feel but has a good level of pigmentation and applies smoothly. It is

Tarte Life of the Party Collector’s Makeup Case Review, Photos, Swatches

The Tarte Life of the Party Collector's Makeup Case ($59 US/$71 CAD) is a neutral lovers paradise. I think it is so amazing to find a holiday eyeshadow palette that offers so many eyeshadows that are all neutral and incredibly easy to wear. Not everyone is comfortable wearing bold, bright, or fun colours and this set is perfect for the beauty lover who loves to have an incredible array of neutral and wearable shades at their disposal. The way this makeup case is organized is really unique as well. Once you zip open the

Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Review, Swatches, and Comparisons

The Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Kit ($42 US/$54 CAD) for Holiday 2015 is one of the season's gifting must haves. If you missed out on last year's Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box o' Blushes then you will want to get your hands on this set before it sells out. I'm not sure if they are more prepared for the demand this year, since last year's kit sold out so quickly, but better safe than sorry. The packaging is so fun this year. Bright green and pink with a polka dot party theme. The palette is a very sturdy tin and
