Jordana Blushes: Review & Swatches!

Swatched left to right: Redwood (Slight shimmer), Rouge (Matte), Rose Silk (Matte), Touch Of Pink (Matte), Sandalwood (Matte), Blushing Rose (Gold shimmer), Tawny Beige (Slight shimmer), Coral Sandy Beach (Golden sheen)

I never tried Jordana products until about a month ago. My local Walgreens don't sell the blushes, so I have only tried the Easy Shine Lipsticks, Fabuliner & Mascara. I loved all three of those so when I saw blogs about the blushes, I had to try them out too. These range from $1.99 - $2.49 and the lid is a twist off cap. These are a STEAL! They are very pigmented and smooth when swatched. I love the color range. Great for all skin tones!  I honestly think these are comparable to the high end blushes out there. If you have tried the Elf Studio Blushes and like them, then you will LOVE these because they are even better! Unlike the Elf blushes, these are not powdery AT ALL. Definitely check these out if your looking to expand your blush collection in a more affordable way :)

theBalm Nude 'Tude (Feeling Nice) Palette: Review & Swatches!

As you can see, it's much thinner then the Urban Decay Naked Palette

Swatches left to right: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stand-offish, Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek

Where was I when this palette came out?? I just heard about this threw a fellow YouTube guru, and I was convinced to get it. This palette is amazing! I love the color range and the fact that it includes 4 matte shades! I thought the Naked palettes from UD were good, and they are, but seriously I think if I would have known about this sooner, I would much rather prefer this one over it. Don't get me wrong, I love my Naked palettes, but I think this palette is perfect for a bunch of different looks without needing any other eye shadows. I always wished that UD put just a couple more matte shades in theirs, and now I see that theBalm has exactly what I wanted, I'm in LOVE! They feel soft and buttery just like UD too. I think I'm complete with my nude palettes, lol. Definitely check this out if your a neutrals lover! ;)
