BOBBI BROWN Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz Review + Swatch

This product is a legendary. Bobby brown shimmer brick is been around for a while and everybody seems to love it. 

So what is BOBBI BROWN shimmer brick?
This is a multifunction product that you can use either as a highlighter, blush, or eye shadow.

I have the one in Pink Quartz, and I LOVE this! Let me tell you again, I completely fell in love with this highlighter (that is what I mainly use this product for).  This product is seriously worth the hype. Although the price tag is not cheap, I don’t mind paying more money for this. 

Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz

Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz Swatches; Right one is all swirled together.

Pink Quartz is a pinkish-bronze shade. It is very beautiful shade. One of the most beautiful highlighter shade that I have ever own. It creates a very luminous finish to the skin. It makes your skin glow and looks healthy. 

The shimmer in this product is pretty prominent. But not so noticeable that I still can still get a way with this during daytime. It contain .4 oz or 10.3 grams of products at US$42.

NARS Laguna & Casino Bronzer Review and Swatches!

Who never heard of NARS Laguna or casino? Everyone knows that this is a very famous bronzer. It’s a huge thing in beauty community. This bronzer is a very great product to have if its fit your budget.

 NARS Casino, NARS Laguna

 NARS Casino blended - heavily swatched, NARS Laguna heavily swatched - blended

Laguna is a medium brown bronzer with a subtle gold shimmer. The shimmer in it is barely noticeable. 
The casino bronzer is a little bit darker with pretty much the same undertone. Although, it looks a little bit more terracotta-ish to me.  I like this even more than Laguna when I'm on faux tan :)

 Both Laguna and casino has subtle shimmer and have satin finish. You can either use these as a contour or as an all over face bronzer to create a nice faux tan.

NARS Casino, NARS Laguna, Benefit Hoola

Here is the NARS bronzer swatch side by side to Benefit Hoola bronzer. Hoola has a totally matte finish while the NARS are more satiny.

The powder itself is high quality and has a satiny feels to it. It doesn’t look muddy and doesn’t look orange, that’s what makes this bronzer so great.

NARS bronzers contain .28 oz/8g of product at for $34. I would say this is worth the money if you willing to pay the price. If not, I believe there are always cheaper alternatives with a good quality as well.

YSL GLOSSY STAINS REVIEW & SWATCHES #26 (Violine Surrealiste), #15 (Rose Vinyl), #12 (Corail Fauve)

No doubt that I have an obsession with lipsticks. However, this particular products is seriously has a special place in my heart. <3 

Here’s what the YSL website claims about the product:

A revolutionary new lip product! Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain for a truly innovative lip product. A lightweight texture that immediately melts onto lips. Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain delivers intense glossy colour for an extremely long lasting new kind of shine. The applicator’s unique slanted tip and short soft bristles allow for flawless application with perfect precision.

And here’s my thought about it:

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stains (YSL Glossy Stains) , I am sure a lot of you guys are familiar with this already. I have it for sometimes now and it became my favorite lip product. For sure! This is one of those products that I would proudly say I’m in love with.

YSL gloss satins in a lipstick, lip gloss, and lip stains in one. The texture of it is amazing; it can be a little tacky after a while but not in a gross way, so I really don’t mind :)

I  seriously can’t get enough of these. The color last very long and doesn’t dry out my lips. And I have a very chapped sensitive lip (it gross I know), so I am very please with this!

So here I am for the watches:

From left to right: #26 (Violine Surrealiste), #15 (Rose Vinyl), #12 (Corail Fauve)

  #26 (Violine Surrealiste), #15 (Rose Vinyl), #12 (Corail Fauve)

No. #26 (Violine Surrealiste) is a bright purple violet color that I think is very wearable. It’s not so bright or too deep. A very wearable purple

No. #15 (Rose Vinyl) is a true pink. I really love this one.

No. #12 (Corail Fauve) is a pinkish coral color. Not so orange, which makes it so pretty.

here is the stains that left after i wash my hands off.

I'd say these products are amazingly well done, and I can’t decide which one is my favorite color out of these three. I love all of the color equally. At $34 USD I would definitely grab some more in the future :)
