Review & Swatches: Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis

Hey guys,

I recently did a really pretty coral eye look using the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis. So I thought I’d review and swatch it for you 😀

I got this product at Walgreens for $9.79 but it can also be purchased at any other American drugstore or here through Amazon.com for all my internationals 😀

The packaging is fairly simple, made form plastic including a double ended sponge tip applicator that I threw out immediately. The packaging feels a bit flimsy but on the plus side its super slim and small so its convenient for on the go or for traveling.

The quad comes with 4 beautiful shimmery shades.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_PinkThe first shade from the left is a gorgeous shimmery pink toned champagne shade. Amazing pigmentation, super creamy texture and amazing longevity when worn with a primer.

Maybelline_Eyestudion_CoralOasisQuad_GoldThe second shade is a yellowy gold shimmer shade. This is a really beautiful shade and compliments the warm tones beautifully. Great pigmentation, blendability, texture and longevity.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_CoralThe third shade is a beautiful coral orange with a satin finish. This is my favorite shade, great color pay off, another buttery smooth shade with great lasting power.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_BrownThe last shade is a deep brown with aubergine undertones. This one also has a satin finish. As is the case with the other shades this one is also highly pigmented, very smooth, easily blendable and great long lasting power.

Here’s a look I created with all the shades plus the shade Mermaid from the Too faced Summer Eyes Palette ( I’ll have a review and swatches up of this guy at some point this week!!).

THE VERDICT:

9/10 for this great budget friendly quad. It has every color you need to create a fresh day time eye or smoked out for those warm summer evenings. The pigmentation, texture, blendability and staying power is wonderful on every single shade. The fallout was minimal, I just made sure to tap the extra product off my brush before application 😀 The only down fall to this product was the flimsy packaging. Otherwise this product was spot on perfect!!

Review & Swatches: NYX Butter Gloss

Hey guys,

So I recently instagrammed and blogged a Ulta Haul where I picked up a bunch of goodies including some NYX products. Well today I thought I’d review and swatch the NYX Butter Glosses in Apple Strudle, Peaches and Cream, Meringue, and Eclair.

All I can say is these bad boys are AMAZING!! They are basically all I need in an everyday easy to wear lip product and this is why…

They all glide on smooth as butter and feel silky smooth on your lips. The consistency is amazing, its like a creamy smooth lip balm with amazing pigmentation and hydration to match. Its not gloopy or thick, its just the right amount of smooth buttery texture. Plus they smell like vanilla so they are just super yummy to have on 😀 The finish is amazing as well. Super shiny without any glitter flakes or chunks.

Here’s a closer look at these amazing lip products 😀

THE VERDICT:

10/10 for these amazing beauties 😀 I just cant say anything bad about them. They all smell great, look great, feel great and perform like magic. They aren’t totally opaque full on liquid pigment but they are awesome glosses non the less. They can be sheered down for a light wash of color or built up with 2 coats for a pretty powerful pout 😀 They last for a good while too and the price is amazing at just $5 a pop 😀 I would so recommend this this product.  I’m definitely gonna go back for more!!!

Have any of you tried the Butter Glosses? Whats your favorite shade?
