Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Etoile Eyeshadow: Review + Swatches

As soon as I saw this new Dior palette for fall, I knew I had to have it. The palette features five eyeshadows, four of which have a star print design on them (COME on, how perfect). I’ve never purchased a Dior palette before and I was excited to see how well the eyeshadows performed. Quite honestly I do not own many Dior products in general. I wish I owned more, but the price tags tend to make me second guess how much I truly need more make-up. This time, Dior won!  The palette well exceeded my expectations! The shades…

NYC 16-Hour Smooch Proof Lip Stain

After deep consideration, I went ahead and purchased two NYC 16-Hour Smooch Proof lip stains. I was extremely hesitant to buy them, despite hearing only great things. I’ve tried other products from NYC and had pretty poor experiences.  From left to right: 493 Champagne Stain & 490 Persistent Pink To my pleasant surprise, I love the lip stains! They are hydrating, pigmented, and truly last a long time. I’m not sure if they last “16 hours” but they stay on long enough. The applicator has a precise tip which makes it very easy to line your lips before fully applying…
