Product Review -- Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette



I'm not going to be coy about this -- I am pretty much head over heels in love with the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette.

So if you're looking for a post that talks you out of buying it, you're probably going to want to skip this one.

I know that there's been a lot of hype surrounding this, and warm, reddish-toned shadow palettes are really nothing new, but this one delivers in a pretty big way -- and is so beautiful that there was no way I could resist it.

It's definitely my favorite addition to the Naked collection since the Naked 2 Palette (and that's saying something because I've liked pretty much all of the Naked Palettes...)

Product Review -- Stila Cosmetics Heaven's Hue Highlighter


I don't think it's possible for me to ever have enough highlighters.

Nearly every time a new one hits the market, I've got to grab it because being glowy is pretty much my top priority where makeup is concerned.

I hadn't heard much when they first launched but lately, I'd been seeing a lot of good things about the Stila Heaven's Hue Highlighters and as usual when makeup is involved, my curiosity got the better of me and I had to pick one up.

The highlighters come in three shades, and while I see most people talking about it in Kitten, Stila's ubiquitous nude pink with golden undertones, I decided to go for Transcendence, an opalescent pink, because Kitten just seemed too similar to other highlighters I have.

Product Review -- Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette


Is it just me or has Tarte been putting out a bunch of new products practically everyday lately?

It's been hell on my bank account because I can't resist picking up at least 75% of the stuff that they put out -- but the good news is that they've been hitting a lot of home runs lately, so at least I haven't experienced too much buyer's remorse.

One of the items that instantly caught my eye was the Clay Play Face Shaping Palette. I love multi-use products that can save a little space in your vanity or travel makeup bag so I was pretty excited to give this one a try.

The shades in the palette are designed to be used as eye shadows, brow colors, and contour powders so they're nearly all matte and fit a pretty natural, earthy color range.

Product Review -- Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer


With my super fair skin, brightening concealers are pretty hard to come by.

That's because it's hard enough to find a concealer that matches my skin tone, let alone one that's lighter enough than my skin to actually have a brightening effect.

Usually, pink-toned concealers are my best bet, but even those are pretty hit and miss.

Still, I was pretty excited to try the Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer -- and it's only about $8, so even if I didn't love it, I wouldn't be out a lot of money.
