A post shared by J. Renée (@jreneejrenee) on

I created this look with the Fall season in mind. As we approach October, we all know that pumpkin spice is the flavor of the month. I was wondering could I pull off the pumpkin look? Using a bold orange eyeshadow from the Lottie for LimeLight Dazzle palette, I started to play on my lids. I added some yellow gold on the inner corners with light brown and dark brown in the crease. I was already loving this look when I saw how the orange brings out the green in my eyes.

I tried something new with foundation. Wet N Wild PhotoFocus is a fairly new product that was released _____. I chose the color Porcelain which is labeled Fair / Warm. I am a fair / neutral and typically I find that colors labeled as “porcelain” in other makeup brands is usually too light for me. This was actually a very good match for me and I didn’t think it appears warm. The formula is Medium/Full buildable coverage. I was confused about the packaging. I guess it has a wand with a little paddle on the end that you can spot on your face. I used the wand to apply it to the back of my hand and then applied it to my face using a foundation brush. Overall, I was satisfied with this foundation for the quality and it’s affordable price. I purchased this foundation at Rite Aid drugstore.

I finished up the look with Pecan brown lip liner by Vera Moore Cosmetics and topped with a chocolate brown matte lip color called 10 Beauty Mark from the NYX Lingerie lip collection. Muah!

Nicka K New York – Aqua Lip Color Review

FullSizeRender 4

I picked up some Nicka K products found at my local beauty supply. This mini-haul includes 4 Aqua Lip Colors and Perfect Twenty-One Colors eyeshadow/blush palette.

I have tried Nicka K eye shadows and lip glosses in the past and very impressed with the quality and affordability. So I was excited to try out more of their products. In this post, I will be reviewing the Aqua Lip Colors.

Nicka K – Aqua Lip Color in Navy Blue, Smoky Black, Carnelian, and Old Mauve

I love the sleek and simple packaging of their products. And of course I am a lipgloss junkie. I chose random colors. These are colors I do not normally wear. I think I own enough pinks and nudes but not too many bold colors so I thought why not try something different? I was interested in how much color payoff I could get with these and why they are called “Aqua”. I assumed it is meant to be a wet look gloss.

My first impression of these was “Yes, these are highly pigmented” with one application. I applied them without any base products or lip liner. They actually have a cool, hydrating feel when it is applied to the lips. The finish is ultra-glossy as I expected. The colors are bold, bright and long-lasting. Aqua Lip Colors are available in 18 shades. You can order them at http://www.nicka.com

In my next post, I will be reviewing the Perfect Twenty-One Colors palette so check back soon!
