    Who hasn't ever used a cream colored eyeliner? Well now is a good time to start! Especially if you are nervous to use COLORED eyeliner, this shade I have hear by Silk  Natural is a darker color that is an easy transition from a basic black.
    Silk Natural's cream eyeliners come in 10 colors! They are "waterproof, long lasting and 100% natural- no silicones, no petroleum products no preservatives!  They're comparable to gel liners, but more natural, and kinder to the skin- the one tiny compromise is that you do have to set them with a little bit of Perfecting Powder- but once you do they'll last as long as you need them to."  These bad boys also won't dry out on you like a lot of these types of products!

    As you can see by the swatches, this color (Peacock) is a deep shimmery green/blue that would go awesome with a neutral eye or even on your lower lash line for a pop of color and something different. Fun Fun Fun!
    The texture of this liner isn't so 'creamy' it was more of a solid cream (if that makes sense). So it doesn't make a huge mess when trying to pick it up which was a plus! I used a small eyeliner brush to pick up some color and had to do a few swipes back and for to get enough, but in the end the product went on smoothly and did last throughout the day.
    With the pigmentation of these and the ease of use,  I may be purchasing some more colors, like their FUN looking Envy color!

Eyeshadow in "Neuron"!

Picture
    Wooo Wee! This shadow has a ton of sparkle and shine to it! This color that was sent to me is in the color Neuron. "Neuron is full of sparks!  It's a medium teal shade with a pearl finish, slight golden overlay and tons of blue twinkle."
    It comes in the same type of container as the photos below, plastic clear jar with a black screw on lid and a sifter! (thank god!) I usually tend to make a huge mess when using loose powders so when some shadows don't have a sifter I end up wasting a lot of product because I'm clumsy!
    When swatching the product I loved how easily it moved around my hand when I was making the swatch circle. That tells me this shadow is going to be great for blending and  easy to work with! Also, while I was playing around with it, the way it's formulated, it's easy to build up color as well. So I could wear this as a sheer look or build it up to make a real statement on my eyes!
    The photo they have on the site matches KINDA similar to it in person. To my eye it looks a little blue instead of green like shown in the photo on the website. But none the less this color is so pretty over any color base. I would love to use this over a black base for a gorgeous nighttime look! The shimmer and sparkles are like any other shadows I have so I am excited about putting it to good use!  Also they have (take a deep breath) 238 COLORS to pick from!           
                                                                                                  -Dianna

    Okay so who loves convenient makeup along with good quality makeup?! I know I sure do. Cosmetique sent over this "Beauty Blockbuster" palette to take a look at and post my honest thoughts about.
    At first I was afraid this may be like one of those palettes you get at CVS that you buy because it looks cute, then you get it home and are disappointed in the quality.  Well, I was proven wrong. First of, I NEEEEEEED to show you the adorable packaging it came in because my mom thought I was crazy because I was like "AHHHH HOW CUTE!!!!"  Let's take  a look!
Picture

    Okay!!! So do I really need to explain!? Am I the only sucker for adorable packaging? To me this says "Hey we really take all aspects into consideration and put thoughts into EVERYTHING!" Little things like this make me know a company is dedicated to quality.
    Anyways, this palette includes: 24 eyeshadows, 12 lipglosses, 3 blushes PLUS 2 lip brushes, 2 double-ended eyeshadow applicators and a blush brush. Yes! This is what I mean by convenient! All you need to bring extra is a liner, mascara and foundation! So much easier than carrying around different containers of different shadow colors or lipsticks!

    I have used this palette for a few days now and have created completely different looks EVERY day. I was almost excited to see what I could come up with the next day. The shadows are great colors and look even better when using a NYX Jumbo Pencil underneath to help pop the color even more. I love the finishes on all of them!
    The lipsticks (last two rows above the 3 bigger pans) are a great range of colors, but I did need to put a gloss over them to help them be a little more moisturizing. But the colors are great and went well with every look I made.
    The blushis fun for me because I don't own two many different colors and this helped me experiment with the darker shade, middle shade, and lighter shade. So I believe this palette is good for any skin tone because of the shade ranges it includes.
    I didn't use the applicators just because I prefer using my own makeup brushes. But I do believe if you don't have your own brushes, then these are okay to use on the go and if you don't want to carry around long handle brushes.
    So this is a $75 value! But on their website they have it for $25! And that's a steal because of the amount of different looks you can make using just this ONE palette! Also makes for great gifts!

    With that being said, I have received a few products to try and tell you beauty lovers my honest opinion about. I will be talking about Lashem's "3-in-1 Eye Bright".


3-in-1 Eye Bright Gel!

"Say bye-bye, so long to dark and puffy circles around your eyes!" Sounds too good to be true? One product that gets rid of dark tired looking circles and puffiness? Well I have tried this product for a couple weeks and can give you my opinions now. This is what it claims to do on their website:
   
    -Decrease puffiness and helps reduce melanin production.
Reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles

    -Prevent future damage to the area around the eye.

    -QuSome patented technology encapsulates active ingredients delivers deep into the epidermis.

    -No skin irritation.

    -Balance cells: stimulates circulation and increase the amount of oxygen delivered to the cell.

    -Improve overall texture of skin by increasing production of collagen and elasticity.

    -Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    First of, I love the little packaging it comes in. It's a round silver bottle that has a pump to help control how much product comes out so there is no wasting of product. Just be a little careful because it can come out fast.
     The only thing I didn't like about the packaging was that the directions were hard to read on the bottle because of how shiny and reflective the container was. But it definitely is something that looks nice on your makeup counter or bathroom counter.
    So, when using this, you apply it after cleansing your face so you have nice fresh clean skin! The you press the pump and one pump is all you need to cover your eye area. Just smooth is over and around your eyes and give it a minute to completely absorb into your skin and dry.
    The gel is a golden color and once I put it on my eyes and rubbed it in, it immediately gave a very nice cooling sensation around my eyes and I could instantly feel like my skin tightened up a little around my eyes. Felt like an instant eye lift! :D
    I noticed I don't look AS tired as usual when I first get up for work if I stay up late (which I usually do!). It does a good job of reflecting light away from your dark circles and I loooove the instant gratification I get from the immediate cooling feeling and tightening of the skin. I am big on instant gratification! A little impatient I guess you could say, haha!
    And at $39.99 compared to those VERY pricey creams that are $70+ and do the same thing, this is the better deal for your money and see better results.
