Dose of Colors Kiss of Fire


Dose of Colors Kiss of Fire matte lipstick is fast drying and transfer proof. However the coverage is patchy and uneven and it takes about a minute or two for the pigmentation to set. But once it does, watch out! Despite its short comings I really like this color and the formula, which reminds me of a stain, because it has a light weight consistency and feel on the lips. Dose of colors liquid lipsticks advertise as vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, and paraben free, which is always a plus. I get at least 8 hour wear without eating or drinking. $18.00USD
Pros 
Bright True Matte Red
Lightweight

Cons
Not a lot of product in the tube
Price too high for amount of product given
Patchy application

Juvia's Place The Magic Palette

Review
The Magic by Juvia's Place is a vibrant palette with 6 matte and 10 frost shades. 
There is something for everyone in this palette in terms of color and the pigmentation is outstanding but that is to be expected. I have swatched the colors so you all can see what they look like without primer or a base to be fair. The palette is on the large side and does not feature a mirror, but none of their palettes do and the art work is beautifully placed on the outside and inside of the palette. I love the orange backdrop because it had uniqueness and flavor to the palette and the color names are unique and fun. $35.00USD

Recommendations

Final Thoughts
If you are a makeup collector like I am chances are you have these colors already in one of your many palettes. This palette is cute and fun and great for beginners. I highly recommend any of Juvia's place eye shadow palettes as you can achieve many different day or night out looks with their palettes especially this one.  XoXo, Madison

Juvia's Place The Zulu Palette

 First off, I really like the pigmentation of all of Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes. They never disappoint. The packaging is cute but just know that their palettes do not come with mirrors which is really no big deal. And unlike the other palettes the colors do not have names, which is also no big deal to me. This palette is very colorful and vibrant. $17.50USD

Wet N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder Royal Calyx & Golden Flower Crown

Shown in outdoor sunlight
 These highlighting powders give you a lot of bang for your buck. The powders are only $4.99USD and offer plenty of shine. Golden Flower Crown is a pale gold, and Royal Calyx is a soft lavender. Golden Flower Crown is very pretty and my favorite out of the two. Royal Calyx was a little hard to work with as I was not able to pick up much product with my brush. It blends out super sheer and offers just a hint of color and shine, so a light hand is not needed. It may just be this color doesn't work well with the formula, or maybe I got a bad batch. Its still a pretty sparkly and unique color to have and looks pretty on my cocoa skin.

Recommendations
Use light hand when applying Golden Flower Crown

Juvia's Place The Saharan Blush Vol. 1

 This palette features six full size blushers, 4 matte and 2 frost. These blushers are the same size as the eye shadows in their most popular palettes. The pigmentation of the matte blushes are very lackluster, and lack longevity. The packaging is cute and sturdy but does not feature a mirror. Suitable for all skin tones  $18.00USD

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit (Limited Edition)


Review
This Anastasia Glow Kit palette features six full size sparkly highlighters. The longevity and pigmentation of these shadows depend on your application, the colors are not impressive and if you collect highlighters you may have these colors in your collection already. But don't get discouraged these highlighters are unique in their own way and pack plenty of sparkle. But not more sparkle than the ABH Ultimate Glow Kit released last fall.  Wether you are makeup collector or just a Nicole Guerriero (YouTube Makeup Blogger) fan you will not be disappointed, there are absolutely no regrets on this purchase. Suitable for all skin tones. Limited Edition. Paid $32.95USD

Pros
Lots of shimmer
Lower price point compared to other Glow Kits

Cons 
Chunky glitter particles tend to make application uneven or patchy

Red Lip Diaries: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Underage Red


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Underage Red, is a beautiful opaque quick drying true matte red. I love it. Kat Von D's liquid lipstick formula is by far the best in terms of pigmentation and longevity. Reapplication is only needed after eating and drinking. Otherwise you will get 8 hour wear out of these lipsticks. The coverage is smooth and not patchy and it dries down very quickly. All products are vegan and cruelty free. $20.00USD
