Milani Coming Up Roses Blush Review & Swatches

Purchased
Milani Flora Passion Warm Petals Coming Up Roses Blush

Flora Passion // Warm Petals

Milani recently released a new collection of four limited edition rose shaped blushes, the “Coming Up Roses” collection.  There are four colors available, and I purchased two of them: Flora Passion, a matte pinky-coral, and Warm Petals, a slightly shimmery orangey nude.

Milani’s permanent blush line (the baked blushes) are very pigmented and beautiful colors but are too shimmery for my preferences, so I had high hopes for the Coming Up Roses blushes.  Unfortunately, I was very disappointed by these.

Spotted: Sinful Colors Sail La Vie & Pool Side Polish Collections

Sinful Colors New Displays

Sinful Colors has released two new collections – Sail La Vie, which has five new shades, and Pool Side Polish, which has three new shades (counting one as new that seems to have been previously released in France, but not in the US). I found both at Walgreens earlier today.

Edited to add that the Sail La Vie collection has also appeared at Rite Aid, under the name Ahoy There! – but all the polishes are the same.  Here’s that display:

Sally Hansen Lick-O-Rich Sugar Coat Textured Nail Polish Quick Review & Swatches

Purchased

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Lick-o-rich

Today I have a quick review (and comparison) of Sally Hansen’s new, limited edition Sugar Coat textured nail polish line. I purchased just one shade from the line – Lick-o-rich, which is black.  The Sugar Coat polishes remind me of Milani’s Textured Creams; both the Sally Hansen and the Milani textured polishes are creme finishes with no shimmer or sparkle.

Maybelline LE Summer 2013 ColorSensational Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Purchased

Maybelline Coral Heat Peach Glisten ColorSensational Lip Gloss

As regular readers know, I’m more of a lipstick person than a gloss person. So, although I’ve seen Maybelline’s ColorSensational lip glosses around, I hadn’t tried them out for myself until I saw the shades released for their limited edition Summer 2013 collection.  Two shades especially caught my eye – Peach Glisten, a creamy pale nude, and Coral Heat, a pink coral – and of course, I chose shades without any shimmer or sparkle.
