Ready To Wear Cosmetics: Review

I recently discovered a new brand on Hautelook, Ready To Wear Cosmetics. I love Hautelook because it gives me the opportunity to try new brands for literally half the price! I purchased a blush/highlight palette and a foundation, which I will be reviewing for you here.

– Ready To Wear New York, Glam Collection Face Palette:

I’m in LOVEEEEEE with this little blush palette. It includes a matte pinkish apricot blush on the left, a shimmery peach blush on the right, and a beautiful shimmery gold highlighter in the middle.

Take a look at these swatches to really see how gorgeous the colors are:

I’m especially loving the matte apricot blush for the fall time. I feel like its perfect for this season, just as the shimmery peach one is for summer. I could rave about the highlighter all day, it’s just so pretty when applied. You can even use these shades for eyeshadow, they are very versatile, especially the highlight color.

– Ready To Wear New York, Aqua Crème Hi-Definition Hydrating Foundation Light:

At first, I was a little freaked out by the consistency and feeling of this product. It’s 25% water, so it is REALLY hydrating as the name states. Your face will look like a wet sticky mess, but let it dry for about 5 minutes and apply a setting powder and you will look flawless. A setting powder is a MUSTTT for this product. Don’t even bother with a setting spray, powder powder powder all the way. If you don’t powder it enough you will find it smearing and moving with the littlest touch. That being said, when you get used to it, you will love it. I tend to have dry skin on my nose, and some foundations make it look flakey and cakey. But not this one, it hydrates the area and makes my face look so smooth and flawless.

If you’re ever browsing Hautelook and see Ready To Wear, I really recommend at least taking a look! Hautelook is awesome to try out new products, since they are so heavily discounted. They post new deals every single day. Just remember, they only last a few days and sell out quickly for some brands/products!

Urban Decay – Naked On The Run: Swatches & Review

naked

Ahhhh, I LOVE Urban Decay! I own every Naked palette and will probably continue to own them in the future, they are by far my most favorite eyeshadows. I pre-ordered my Naked On The Run palette from Sephora.com the day it was released. It costs $54 and includes 6 eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lipgloss, eyeliner, and mascara. I think its an awesome palette and it’s so convenient to have it all confined to one simple case!

I know I don’t have the best quality pictures, but for what it is, the color payoff is great. I’m happy they included matte shades to balance out the shimmery ones. These colors will create an amazing smokey eye, I’m beyond excited to start using it often!

eyeliner– 0.03 oz 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

mascara– 0.13 oz Perversion Mascara
Blackest Black

Overall, so far I am completely happy with this palette. At first, I thought the bronzer was going to be very light and have an orange tint to it, but when I actually tried it on it was just perfect. I love love love the blush in the palette too. The 5050 shadow is being mistaken by some people for a highlight, but it is indeed an eyeshadow. It can be used as a highlight tough, I suppose! I was super excited to get another Perversion Mascara. I previously had gotten a sample size from Ipsy and instantly fell in love with it. I’m also really stoked to try out the new Stag eyeliner. It will complement these shadows so well. Definitely worth the money for me!!
