Sigma Makeup Hollywood Glamour Kit - Princess Grace

Sigma Makekup has several different kinds of the Hollywood Glamour kits. They have Something about Marilyn (Red), Breakfast with Audrey (Black), and Princess Grace (Pink). Of course, as you can see I have Princess Grace. I love this kit, and the color. Normally I am not a pink fan, but I love it. Sigma has me falling for the color pink. Pink is now on my list of favorite colors, but purple will always be my number 1. Now let's get back to what we are really here for.

The Hollywood Glamour Kit in Princess Grace contains a pink retractable kabuki brush, and beautiful Sigma Makeup bag ( it's a large enough bag to fit a lot things in.), cute pink dazzling compact mirror. You also get a free gift which is the traveling E35 brush. When I bought mine, I also got an free eyeshadow in Indian girl. I think it might still come with it. I am not sure.

You can use the kabuki brush for anything. You can use it for mineral, liquid, powder foundations. Also for any types of blushes. Though, I dont know how well it would work with a cream blush, but it might work. The bristles of the brush is so soft, and blends the foundation so flawlessly. It doesn't scratch or poke your skin. It doesn't make your touch-ups look so cakey on your skin. This brush can easily fit in your makeup bag, purse, or anything. But I wouldn't try fitting it into your pockets. It will not fit. lol..This is such a cute brush to be carrying around.

A lot of people, myself included use this method I am about to mention. Instead of carrying around a brush and a powder foundation for touch up. Just simply load up the powder on the brush, and close it up. So it is ready for use when you need it. I saw this on youtube, and other beauty gurus will say this too. So this kit is really handy to have. It has the simple essentials you need for if you are going out shopping or whatever for those touch-ups moments.

The compact mirror is a heart-shape mirror with pink rhinestones. It comes in a black velvet bag with the Sigma label. When you open it up, it is a double mirror. Which is great. It is a beautiful compact mirror, and I absolutely love it. I use mine all the time. I get so many compliments. You will love it too. 

So why not pamper yourself or someone else with this beautiful kit. You or someone will absolutely love it. I know I do.

This kit along with the other colors cost $49.00.

Covergirl Natureluxe Lip Gloss Balm

Covergirl has a new line, it has been out for a little while now. It is called Natureluxe. They have it in foundations, and lip balms. I have the foundation, I haven't tried it out yet. But I am really loving the lip balm so far. I have been using for about 2 weeks now. The color I got was in 215 hibiscus hibiscus. It was a really weird name. Covergirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm contains a lightweight blend of mango, shea butter, and other natural butters used in place of heavier feeling emollients.

It is a nice dark pink color. It goes on kinda sheer, but it is buildable. It had a little bit of a gloss feel. This is basically a tinted lip balm. It made my lips feel very moisturized. On me, the color gave my lips a little bit of a stain color after eating or drinking. It doesn't dry out my lips at all. After applying it, it has a good staying power. It lasts on me for about 4 hours or more. That is with drinking, and talking. Of course, when eating, it will rub off on your napkin. This does have an SPF of 15. Which is good.

left swatch - I build it up with about 5 or more swipes.. right swatch - about 2 swipes. 
      It is a little bit darker than what the picture shows. I had a problem with the lighting.

I think the packaging is kinda cute. It is a light green tube with dark green design ( looks like a leaf to me.) The cap is clear so you are able to see the color of the lip balm. I plan on getting some more of these. I really love this. I have been using it a lot. They have a variety of colors to choose from. You can get this at any drugstore, and online. It is about $6.00 depending the store. Soon as I try out the foundation, I will do a review on that.

Need great, long-lasting brushes, need new cute accessories. Then go check out Sigma Beauty.
They have wonderful customer service. I've ordered from them several times. I have been very happy. People I know love them too. They are coming out with more new product this year. I can't wait.
