Okay, so if you haven't already picked up the newest issue of GLAMOUR,
what the heck are you waiting for?
So obviously from the title of this post I am not going to rave about the magazine because frankly I don't have to, we all know its a great.
I just uploaded a video on YouTube, and I'm sure most of you are here because of it so welcome!
The video is an inspired look of the bubbly Vanessa Hudgens.

Lets get the FTC mumbo jumbo out of the way...
Yes they sent me the products for free, and No I was not paid for this post or my video.

On to the review...

This is all of what they sent me. I am going to be very honest with you, as I know a lot if not most of my subscribers trust my word and my opinion.

Some of these items I didn't care for the colors not because they were ugly, just because they werent me. so I will probably store them away until I think of a look I might need a orange-red lip. I don't love and don't hate mineral makeup, but its not the first item(s) on my list.
With that being sad, I didn't take pictures of the two that I got nor will I discuss them.

Now to the coolest product: Cream Glace Click Pen in "Nude"
You have to click them about 10 times before the product comes into the brush head.
Ive owned a few of these click types, so it was not a big deal.
The color is beautiful and I think its the perfect highlight for the lips.

The applicator is pretty bulky but also very light weight.
When I was loading the lip gloss I thought I broke it because its not clear how one would go about removing and refilling. Aside from minor flaws, I love it!
I think I had one "wtf?!" moments and it was with the brush that came in the palette.
The third time that I used it, the brush head from one end broke off.
I really do prefer my MAC / Sigma Makeup brushes over any other
brushes so I was not too surprised by the quality. Honestly how many times does anyone use the tiny little brushes palettes come with?

I always fell like KING KONG because my hands are so big and the brush is awkwardly tiny.


Here is the cake liner in "Black" that I used as an eyeshadow, and "Hummingbird" blush.
I have yet to use the cake liner for its original purpose, but the pigmentation dry its way better than my matte black from MAC I can tell you that much. The blush is very pigmented (= more money for your buck) so it would also work great for an eyeshadow and light contouring.

On to the liners. I obviously haven't touched "grape" the purple liner, but "black ebony" is definitely a re buy. I have gone through 3 hip cream liners by Loreal only to find myself let with a crusty dry jar of yuck. This gel liner is tiny, but seriously, you only need to dip it once to get the job done.

The eyeshadow base is also a good product. I don't like the initial texture because it feels too watery. After it hits the air, it almost changes form and looks more like a base should. I was happily surprised with this product.

The color is a perfect middle of white and nude.

Now if you have been following me, it will come to no surprise that I love the cream sticks.
These can be used all over the face according to the companies website, but I think they are perfect for cheek color.
The Everything Sticks
The top golden color is "Trixi" and the other is "Dixie"
The pink is lighter than I was hoping but I think it would be amazing for a quick touch up at the beach. I can definitely see myself throwing this in my overnight bag.

All in all, I was thankful to the company for introducing me and those of you who follow me to their company and its products. I looked up prices on their website as well as on a very popular website All Cosmetics Wholesale. and the prices are very reasonable considering there mentions in popular magazines.

Like I said already, I love the lipgloss pens, the cake liner, and of course my new favorites: the "Everything" sticks.


Keep it fabulous!
