Jesse's Girl Glow Stix Review and Swatches of Red Dawn, Wicked, and Tangerine

Have you ever thought to yourself, how awesome would it be to have glowy, iridescent lips, that had all the shine of a glow stick, but subtle enough to be classy and adult? Well I have and Jesse's Girl has brought back their Ice lip glosses from last year, now called Glow Stix with the addition of a new shade! Perfect!
When you first see this product you may be a little intimidated by this product when you see it in the tube. Don't be. First off this product applies slightly white sheer and you only see the color when light hits it just the right way. You can use these on bare lips, over lipstick, or over liner. While the applicator is a bit tricky to use, especially over lipstick, i would suggest applying over liner. The applicator, which is a doe foot applicator, tends to pick up very little gloss and tends to wipe lipstick off the lips when applied tinting the gloss in the tube. I would suggest popping out the white stopper and dipping a lip brush in. It gives a smoother and more even applicator. My only real issue with this product is how small the tube is. It is just slightly larger than the applicator itself but the tube makes the actual space of product magnified. Above i have applied Tangerine (reflects orange) over maybelline's electric orange color sensational lipstick (upper left corner), Red Dawn (reflects red) over have to have it liner from mac (upper right corner), and i applied Wicked (reflects green) over Brazen Berry by maybelline color sensational lipstick.

Overall i like how these feel on the lips, not sticky, not too wet, and i adore the subtle glowy effect. You can pick these up in Rite Aid or online at

Urban Decay Moon Dust Shadow Review and Swatches

A little late to update this but if you haven't already seen them or got your hands on them, the new Urban Decay Moondust shadows are a must have!

What is so special about Moondust shadows? While they offer sparkle and shine without all the mess (though there is some fall out!) Use these shadows wet or dry for a high pigmented look. They have a bit of a moist feeling to them which helps them to adhere to the skin well though i still suggest using a primer. Above i have both Zodiac and Stargazer shades. I love glittery these are!  They do contain reflective micro-glitter and its higher in quality than most micro-glitter shadows.  I would not recommend using a brush that isn't dense to apply these. They Have great pigmentation but are more glitter than shadow.  Overall these are a must have if you like sparkle!They are currently on sale for 20$ on Below i have created an eye look using Stargazer on the lid and Zodiac on the crease blended out to the brow bone. I got a full 7 hours of wear with minimal fading.
