Juvia’s Place – The Nubian 2 Palette

One day while perusing my twitter timeline I came across the company Juvias place and their Nubian palette. After seeing several swatches and watching reviews I immediately went to their website with purchasing the Nubian palette in mind. For whatever reason I then decided to wait only for them to release the Nubian 2. Beautiful isn’t it?

The Nubian 2 is twice the size of the original Nubian which also makes this palette the most expensive out of the two. This palette comes with 4 matte eye shadows and 8 shimmers (that look so amazing!). The pigmentation of these eye shadows is out of this world and I’m afraid to say that the Nubian 2 has replaced my beloved Chocolate Bar palette by Too Faced!

You can find the Nubian here and the Nubian 2 here. Enjoy!

Liquid Lipsticks for Under $2?

Yes, you read that right! Kleancolor has created a line of Madly Matte Lip-glosses (liquid lipsticks) that you can find for less than $2 online or in your local beauty supply store. There are 24 shades in the full collection consisting of vibrant reds, purples, pinks and mauves.

Out of the 24 liquid lipsticks I currently own seven. Grape (1621), Magenta Crush (1620), Jam (1616), Royal (1622), Caliente (1613) , Confetti (1610) and Sangria (1623).

The colors are super pigmented but they have a tacky feeling when you put your lips together long after the initial application. For $1-2 I’m glad that’s the worst thing about them. No bad smell, no streakiness and they don’t fill into the lines of your lips like some others. One thing that I dislike about the packaging is that they don’t have the names of the colors. The only way you can reference the color is by the number which is on the bottom of the lipgloss. If you’re interested in purchasing then be prepared to see ‘sold out’ because these things are a hot commodity!

First Impression: Wet n Wild Makeup Brushes

Wet n Wild has recently revamped their product selection and they have added a new collection of makeup brushes!

The makeup brushes have white handles with white and pink gradient bristles. The brushes are synthetic, cruelty free and super soft!  These brushes are great for beginners because they have an indentation for your fingers which can help when applying winged liner or doing a look that requires precision. The most that you will be spending on these brushes is $2.99. You can compare the prices of their products to eyeslipsface (ELF) , which is another affordable company that I love.

Out of the collection I have five brushes:

  1.  Crease brush – $.99
  2. Big eye shadow brush – $.99
  3. Blush brush – $2.99
  4. Angled eyeliner brush – $.99
  5. Flat top brush – $2.99.

I haven’t had any issues with these brushes so far and would recommend them to anyone interested!

To purchase you can find these at Walgreens (in store & online) and on Wet n Wild’s website where they have web exclusives. Enjoy!
