New Makeup Babies!

I'm starting to call my products "babies" now. I officially have a sickness. Anywho let's dodge intervention move right along. . . I picked up some new things to add to my ever growing collection. It's only two things; One I'm already in love with! So let me show you what I got!

First I picked up the Wet N Wild trio in Cool As a Cucumber. It's a purple/green trio that's really pretty. The "Brow bone" color is a matte mint green, the "Crease" color is an eggplant purple with the slightest sheen, and the "Eyelid" color is a gorgeous moss green[this color has the most sheen]. I don't really see a "cucumber" green in this palette, but I can kind of see where they were going. Like a lot of the WnW palettes, you can easily wear this as is and not look too crazy!

My next, and most favorite, purchase is actually a first from this line. It's the Milani baked blush in Fantastico Mauve. I asked on Twitter the other day, what should be my first purchase from this company since I don't have anything and I think it was Courtney that suggested a baked blush. Thanks so much Courtney for that suggestion because I am in love with it! I've looked at their blushes before and always passed on them because I really didn't think they were worth it and I was so wrong about that! This blush has white and hot pink veining running through it along with very fine golden glitters. I was skeptical about the glitters at first because I don't need anything making me look shinier, but the gold fades away and just produces the slightest sheen on the cheeks. If I blushed, this is what it'd probably look like! It's just the perfect pink for my skintone[NW 45]!

Blended on the right

I plan to buy more Milani Baked Blushes in the future! Which ones do you have and suggest I try out first? PS: stayed tuned for a FOTD that I used this in!

hey girly, have you discovered they are cheaper than cherry culture and appears to ship faster, too! i think they carry milani. sadly, i can't just try any cosmetics because i have super sensitive skin. i lucked out with nyx and e.l.f. but before trying them out this year, i've been using clinique for 10+ years.

I've been meaning to pick the Fantastico Mauve blush, it's really pretty. I have one in Rose D'oro and it works suprisingly well on my "brown skin" :)
