Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigments Review

Hey there!

So I have used the Color Tattoo cream shadows but I have never used these babies before, and you guys will NEVER believe where I found them!!! Wait for it....... THE DOLLAR TREE!!!!
I know right.. Crazy. Any way on to my swatches and opinion on these.

So I picked up every color they had available but I will be going back to see if they get any more :)

The colors I got were Breaking Bronze, Buff & Tuff, Pink Rebel, Downtown Brown and Never Fade Jade.

I bought Breaking Bronze a week ago and I have used it a lot since, it's super smooth and easy to apply with little to no fall out. I have not used the other yet. I plan on mapping out looks with the them this week!

I like the fact that the are shimmery but now glittery. They are buttery too.  Buff & Tuff is pretty but I don't know how I feel about it yet it has a lot of glitter but it may look good. I will report back to you guys on that. Below are swatches but you really can't see the glitter in it.

I think Downtown Brown will make a cute smokey brown look alongside of my Milani Shadow Eyez pencil!!! I will be posting pics of that soon!!! 

All in all these are great and for $1 you can't beat it!!! Tell me what you guys think and show off your thrifty Dollar Tree finds! Don't forget #tatswingsandnerdythings

Milani Rose Collection Blushes!!!

Hey there guys and dolls!! Sorry for the delay in posting it been one CRAZY week! Started a new schedule at work and I am pleasantly adjusting. Its been nice being home early enough to see life and my kids. God has once again blessed me. I have been super excited to share this new buy with you!!! I also have several others that I will be sharing throughout this month :)

Let's get started, shall we?

So I heard so many great things about these blushes so I decided to try them. Milani has great products and I have been using them for some time now. Their baked blush in Luminoso BE BANGIN! lol It was my holy grail for a long time and is also a dupe for NARS Orgasm. 

I was in the market for a new blush, especially because my MAC PeachTwist was dropped and shattered. I also wanted to try matte blushes this season. I went out and bought 2 of the Milani blushes from their Rose Collection. I was immediately drawn in by the colors, Romantic Rose and Coral Cove. 


I must say I was super excited about this buy. So I tried Romantic Rose on the next day and wore it with a muted pink and taupe look eye. The blush blended super smooth and was just pigmented enough. (see pic below)

Here are 2 swatches that I did with my finger just to show you how pigmented they were and W00t! It was a win. I got TONS of compliments on this color when I wore it. I have not worn Coral Cove yet but I will update later.

You like that tat right... *Singy voice* Oh yea you like it!! Showing off some wrist LOL!

What made this buy twice as awesome..... These 2 beauties were priced @ $8.99 at my local Walgreens. I get to the register ready to pay $18 for them. I plugged my Balance Rewards number in there and BOOM! What did I see????? These babies are on sale this week for........$5.99!!!! So make sure you head down to your local Walgreens and get this baby for a steal!

Here I am in Romantic Rose!!!
