My Thoughts: OMG at the pigmentation!! You have to apply this blush with a light hand but the good news is that it blends out easily if you happen to apply too much. Aruba is a stunning bright matte orange.

I have loved everything I have tried by Sleek. The products are amazing and very affordable. The only down side is the availability as some of the products they will not ship to the US due to FDA regulations.

Sleek Curacao Palette Swatches and Review

Price: Sadly this is not available anymore but it does show up on eBay every now and then.

My Thoughts: Sleek Palettes are an unbelievable value and so very pigmented. This was a limited edition palette that i was able to get on eBay but sadly it’s no longer available. These shadows are smooth and blend easily. Swatches are over bare skin.

Stila Custom Color Blush Self-Adjusting Bronze Swatches and Review

Product:Stila Custom Color Blush Self-Adjusting Bronze

Price: $20 from Stila

20120722-094545.jpg

20120722-094549.jpg

Product Description from the Website:
Why we love it…

Our newest addition to the Custom Color Blush family, this perceptive one-shade-fits-all powder blush comes in a natural bronze hue, with a hint of subtle shimmer for a customized sun-kissed glow, perfect for you.

Product Description

An innovative powder blush that reacts to each individual’s pH to create a perfect, personalized shade with its unique one-shade-fits-all technology. The ultra-blendable, velvety soft formula magically smoothes the appearance of fine lines and imperfections leaving skin with a luminous, flawless flush.

My Thoughts: This is my second favorite bronzer right behind Benefit Hoola. This bronzer does have a slight shimmer in it but once blended into the skin it is not noticeable at all. If you recall I am a huge fan of Stila’s Self Adjusting blushes, they are simply amazing. If you are new to bronzers and/or contouring I think this would be really great for you because it is super easy to work with.

Urban Decay New and Improved Big Fatty Mascara Review

Product: Urban Decay New and Improved Big Fatty Mascara

Price: $20 from Urban Decay

20120722-091838.jpg

20120722-091853.jpg

20120722-091903.jpg

Product Description from the Website:
Get the biggest, fattest, THICKEST lashes imaginable with our newly re-formulated mascara. Lengthens lashes while enhancing curl and moisturizing. All this in a redesigned art-deco tube with the fattest brush out there for lashes that stand up and shout!
UD knows that size does matter and to prove it we’ve given Big Fatty a big fat makeover.
Our new high-tech formula works to volumize, lengthen, curl and fan lashes out, thanks to our uniquely-shaped, molded brush. It has bristles that wrap around its tip, perfect for pumping up those tiny bottom lashes and getting into corners without the need for a separate wand.
No need to worry about clumpiness, either. Apply multiple coats for a buildable, virtually weightless, smudge and flake-proof look that provides ultra-long wear.
This high-tech, moisturizing formula with Hemp Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil and Purisilk SPB, rejuvenates, hydrates and prevents free radical damage, all that while looking ultra-hot in our new art deco design. The two of you are going to be unstoppable together.
Fill Weight: 15ml e 0.51 US fl oz

My Thoughts: First of all I purchased this right before Urban Decay announced its plan to sell in China and once that was announced I wasn’t going to review it on my blog because while I do not claim to use all cruelty free products I looked up to Urban Decay for their stance on animal testing. Now that they have decided against selling in China I feel comfortable reviewing this for you all.

This mascara is very on par with Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara in my opinion. I am having a hard time deciding which one I like better. The Benefit formula is a tad drier than Big Fatty which might sway me to like Big Fatty just a tad more. The formula is very black and is buildable with out clumping or flaking. I personally like to use 2 coats. Big Fatty is long lasting and also easier to remove than Benefit’s They’re Real. If you’re a fan of They’re Real I highly recommend Big Fatty.
