Milani Baked Blush Haul – Review and Swatches

Some of my fellow bloggers already know this, but I’ve been on an unofficial shopping ban for the last month. Officially speaking, I haven’t made any major purchases in makeup since the end of November. But It was at the start of this month that I made the active choice to stop buying makeup. Granted, it’s been made a little bit easier by two facts.

Fact the first: My little sister Harmony gave me the most AWESOME birthday present ever and their names run around the lines of Burberry, Dior and Armani. Fact the second: It’s allowed me to rediscover some neglected purchases. In this review, I discuss three and P.S. It’s going to be a picture-heavy ride!

ELF Studio Cream Blush in Heartbreaker

e.l.f. Studio Cream Blush in Heartbreaker – Review and Swatch

I mentioned in my review of the E.L.F Studio Matte Lip Color that I’d picked up two makeup items while I was grabbing a couple of brush replacements. That was the first and this is the second. I’ve become something of a blush fiend and I figured I’d be remiss to not give their cream

Nyx Powder Blushes (From Left to Right: Red, Peach and Cinnamon)

NYX Powder Blush in Cinnamon, Red and Peach – Review and Swatches

Whaa. I miss you guys so much! School is such a time suck. DW, I’m working on pre-writing a bunch of posts so that you can still enjoy the fruits of my lack of shopping restriction. (I just bought an iPhone 4s after realizing there’s no way I can hold out for the 5 and I am eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Canon Rebel T4i so I can decide if it or the T3i are making their way home with me.)

This post’ll be a quickie (by my standards) but hopefully a helpful one! I’m sure that most of you who’ve read this (or any other) beauty blog are familiar with the NYX powder blushes. In this post I cover the three shades that I own, Cinnamon (orange), Red (Red) and Peach (not so peach, much more super light pink.)

Illamasqua Lover

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover – Review and Swatches

This review is a long time coming, as I’ve been admiring Illasmasqua Lover on the faces of ladies like Lilit from Makeup and Macaroons for a while now. If you’ll recall from my review of Illamasqua’s cream blusher, Rude – I went on quite a journey to get this baby in a store before giving in and buying it online. When lover and I locked…uh…gazes…it was a thing of beauty. ; _ ;

Sleek Suede Blush

Sleek Blush in Suede – Review and Swatch

I’m starting to think I should put a little Sponsored by The Sunday Girl sign on SB’s sidebar or something. The giveaway I won from Adrienne really gave me some amazing loot but this is probably my favorite of the bunch! The second I saw it reviewed on Adrienne’s blog, I knew I had to have Sleek’s Suede Blush from the Nude collection. Did it disappoint? …Well durr obviously not because I’ve already admitted it’s my favorite prize 8D Haha….ha…
