Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette Review

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette
This surprised me by me NOT falling in love with it. I thought many of the shades under performed and were patchy and powdery. I’ve fallen in love with the KVD Metal Crush eyeshadows, so I expected this palette would be awesome and was let down when it wasn’t. I shouldn’t have been too surprised though. Looking back through all the products that I’ve bought from Kat Von D they’ve been very hit or miss. I loved the liquid lipsticks but found the studded kiss lipsticks varied greatly by formula. (See my Mi Vida Loca Remix review)

Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks
These surprised me for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, they’re awesome! Second, I don’t feel like they’re drying on my lips. Third, they take FOREVER to dry down. Seriously, I think it takes them maybe fifteen minutes? It feels like forever. So they’re not your typical matte liquid lipstick formula. That said, I love the colors that I own. I’ve bought a bunch of them. These are not kiss proof or transfer proof, by the way. If you kiss someone or take a drink from a glass, it will leave coloring on the person or object.  However, you’ll still be left with plenty of pigmentation on your lips. I love all the colors that I own and I’m tempted to buy more. I hope Nyx expands the shade range in this line. These are coming on my next trip because I love the colors and formula so much. Also, while they come with a doe foot applicator, it’s flexible and it makes it pretty easy to apply these colors without a lip pencil. You know I rarely will do that.

Right now, they’re buy 2 get 1 free at Ulta, so if you’re interested, don’t miss out on them!
