Dior Golden Reflections Eyeshadow Plalette

I haven't purchased any Dior eyeshadows before because none of them really stood out to me as something I needed to have. But their 2014 Holiday collection was a different story. 

Golden Reflections is a neutral palette on fairy dust. It screams seduction and glamour. The five colors all blend beautifully and I love that you can go all out glam or create a subtle work look in a matter of minutes. My favorite shade in this palette is the tarnished metallic gold. 

This was part of the limited edition holiday collection but it is still available here at Macy's.

This is just a sample of products from the collection. There are also mascaras, eyeliners, nail polishes, etc. I personally love the look of the cosmetic bag at the bottom. Which sort of surprised me since I don't usually go for Mac's cosmetic bags. What do you guys think of this collection?

Kiko Illuminating Bronzer

Kiko Cosmetics is new to me since I first walked into their store on Black Friday in December. I was pretty blown way by the variety they have available in colors and products. It was like a candy store for a makeup addict. The prices were great and the quality of everything I've tried so far hasn't let me down. You can't beat that!

What drew me to this bronzer in the first place is the lavender color mixed into the palette. It is perfect for brightening and illuminating my complexion. It kind of reminded me of my Mac CC powder in the lavender shade. So I thought, a bronzer plus the brightening effects from the lavender shade equals jackpot in the glow game. 

The only issue I have with this bronzer is the fact that there is only this shade to choose from. Those of you with tanner and deeper complexions won't find this product very helpful as a bronzer. I am an NC15/NW20 for reference.

Lorac Unzipped Gold

Here ladies and gentlemen is the gorgeous Unzipped Gold palette from Lorac cosmetics. This is a stunner and really would be gorgeous around the holiday season and the summertime when you want that glow. Again this palette of ten includes both matte and shimmer finishes like the original Unzipped. All ten shadows are beautifully pigmented and can be used in a multitude of ways. This palette is definitely more warm toned against it's sister so if you are contemplating if you really need both keep that in mind. But I don't regret purchasing both palettes, myself because they are pretty different than anything I already have in my collection.

Lorac Unzipped

Lorac has just released their new Unzipped Gold eyeshadow palette so I figured before I do a post on that beauty I would show you this gorgeous rose gold collection that is Unzipped (the original). 

There is a mix of both matte and shimmer finishes included in both palettes. All shades are equally super pigmented. Although the swatches may look gold toned (which could be my lighting, sorry about that!), when you see the next palette and a comparison of the two below you will see just how much rose is actually incorporated here. It is the perfect everyday glam collection. Perfectly matte when you want low key but also perfectly shimmery when you want that glamorous romantic look!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks - Pure Hollywood & Vamp

They finally arrived!! With a total of 20 shades to choose from, Anastasia Beverly Hills has your lips covered in super pigmented luscious color with their newly released liquid lipsticks. 

I chose to purchase the colors Pure Hollywood (the perfect nude) and Vamp (a vampy brownish red). These apply opaque in one swipe and will last the entire day. They go on like a gloss and dry to a matte finish. 

The next shades I have my eyes on are Neon Coral & Milkshake! You all need to check these babies out. For $20 a pop they are reasonably priced in my opinion for the quality you receive.
