Elizabeth Arden Rose Illumination Highlighter Review

I’m loving rose gold anything lately. I like it in eyeshadow, jewelry, nail polish and, most recently, I love it as a highlighter.

My friend Prissy, from prissyandpink raved about the Elizabeth Arden Rose Illumination Highlighter. She said that it was gorgeous and that I needed it! In proper fashion I went out and purchased one for myself…and boy was she right! Its gorgeous.

The packaging is a shiny, rose gold compact with a generous mirror. It doesn’t look like much in the pan, just sort of pinkish, but swatch it and it comes to life! It catches the light “just so”. There is something about it. It just illuminates everything it touches, namely my cheek bones, nose and once in a while my brow bone and inner corner if I’m feeling frisky that day.

It is a limited edition product so get to your Elizabeth Arden counters right away if you want one. Its such a fabulous product that maybe they will bring it back. It needs to be permanent, it really does!! Thanks Prissy, as always you were spot on!!

Review: Too Faced Candelight Glow Highlighter/Illuminator

I’m always excited to see what Too Faced is going to release next.  I was not disappointed this season.  They released a lot of fun things, but my favorite of the bunch was the new Candelight Glow highlighter.  What can I say? I love it!

As you would expect from Too Faced, the packaging is just too cute. It has a chandelier on it and they have also embossed a chandelier on the product to match. How cute!

The product is actually two different highlighters. One is a white gold and the other is a pale pink.  They both give you a beautiful luminescent glow. They have just the right amount of shimmer, but no chunky glitter.  Yea!  You can use them separately or mix them if you like.  They both look beautiful on the cheek bones, nose, cupid’s bow and eyes.  To sweeten the deal you are getting both of these highlighters for $29.  That is a good value for two high end highlighters.  You are usually looking at paying around $30 for just one highlighter shade.

You can purchase this product at www.toofaced.com, sephora and sephora.com, ulta and ulta.com and anywhere Too Faced products are sold.

Mac Heavenly Creature: What Did Christy Order?

Mac has done it again! They released another collection before the official release date. This time it is the Heavenly Creature collection, which is their mineralized collection for summer 2012.

Its a fairly large collection, to say the least. They have everything from Skinfinishes, blushes, eyeshadows, brushes, lipsticks, cremesheen glasses and skincare.

So what did I pick up from this collections?

Three mineralized eyeshadows in Sky, Universal Appeal and Aurora.
One mineralized skinfinish in Light Year
Two lipsticks in Fire Sign and Cut the Caper
Two Cremesheen Glass glosses in Meteoric and Galaxy Rose

I’ll do a youtube haul when these arrive and then a review just as soon as I get a chance to play with them.

Are you going to pick anything up and if so what are you going to get? I’d love to hear!!!!

Review: Milani Eyeshadow Pencils

One of ilani’s latest releases has been their cream eyeshadow pencils. They come in a variety of colors from neutrals to bold brights.

These pencils are really nice.  They are creamy and do not tug at your eyelid when you apply them.  They blend well (the white one blends a little too well for certain eye looks).  I didn’t have any creasing and they easily lasted a good 10 hours without fading.

The only issue I had was with the white pencil.  These pencils claim to be highly pigmented, which the blue one is, but when you touch the white shadow, it turns into a sheen.  Its pretty, don’t get me wrong, but the color is almost impossible to build.  It makes a beautiful highlight though.

So, have you picked up any of these shadows and if so what do you think of them?

Zoya Kimber Nail Polish

I’m loving Zoya’s nail polish in Kimber from their Surf collection.  Its a little coral and a little red. It does have shimmer.  Its just beautiful.  Its supposed to be a close dupe to Nar’s Thakoon polish in Anardana.

Nichole by OPI Nothing Kim-Pares to Blue Swatch

Nicole by OPI has launched the Kardashian Kollection. I could not resist picking up the color Nothing Kim-Pares to Blue.

It is a beautiful powder blue polish with shimmer. You will need at least 2 coats of polish, but 3 coats is better. It looks really pretty on the nails and is the perfect color for spring and summer:) Have you tried any of the Kardashian Kollectin colors? Let me know:)
