Review - Glitter eyeshadow's and lipsticks, oh my!

Hello again!  I wanted to review a product I got last week, and showed in my glittery eyeliner look from last week.  (Was that a crazy run on sentance?!?)


I saw these in a new display in Ulta they are called Hydra Liquid Shadow by LA Splash in Majestic and Holographic.  The display had probably about 10 colors, half of which were actual liquid shadow, while the other half consisted of glitter in a clear base like these two.  The purple one is just pinky/purple glitter, but the holographic one.....


.....is so freaking awesome in the bottle!  It doesn't come across in this pic, but it's a linear holo in the bottle.  These bottles come with a doefoot applicator, and I found the best way to apply it was by doing dabbing motions, not swiping motions.


The glitter is very densely packed which is nice.  I also found it stuck around all day without budging or flaking off which for us contact lens wearers is a plus.  Actually any eyeball user would find a benefit to that, lol!

I plan on getting the others of these, which I'm sure included a teal, blue, green....etc.  I highly recommend these to you ladies who like to wear glittery looks.


Next up are Wet N Wild's Mega Last Lip Color in Mauve Outta Here and Cherry Bomb.


These are so pigmented.  If you know me, you know I hate wearing lipstick, that's been changing recently as I keep finding better lipsticks.  I HATE the way most lipsticks feel on my lips, that almost tacky feeling they get.  I like being able to move my lips around and have not stick to each other (does that make sense?  I like the slick feeling like your wearing a lipbalm).  These are quite comfortable for me to wear, and they are easy to apply, and don't look drying.  Another thing I don't like about most lipsticks is they highlight my dry lips, not so with these, and I love that!  While I haven't worn the darker Cherry Bomb out, I have worn the pink one, which turns a much brighter pink on my lips, but it's quite flattering on me, which doesn't happen often!

There is only two downsides to these lipsticks.  1) they don't have the names on the tubes.  The names are on the little plastic wrapper that seals the lipstick.  I had to look the names up online. And 2) I wish the product would go all the way down in the tube.  I like when lipsticks can retract all the way, and I always seem to gouge into a product that doesn't, as you can see I did to the pink color.  Very minor, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Thanks for stopping by!
