Resort Palette Dupes!

Hey Everyone! So I know I have been raving about the Sigma Resort Palette ever since I got it at IMATS LA earlier this year, but I thought it might be helpful to do a post about possible options for dupes of the shades in this palette. If you are just interested in getting the palette itself, you can get it for a limited time at : http://www.sigmabeauty.com/Resort_Palette_p/ep007.htm

The Resort Palette costs $42.00 plus shipping, but you can all the dupes for it for only about $30.00 ! All together it’s not a HUGE difference in price, but if you are just interested in a few of the shades, it’s a good deal.

**the Sigma Resort Palette Shade will be first, followed by the corresponding dupe**

Lets start with the eyeshadows! (PICTURES AND SWATCHES BELOW)

Muse : a cool charcoal grey with slight silver shimmer

NYX Glam Shadow in Boomerang : a slightly deeper cool charcoal grey with silver shimmer

Fawn : a cool bronze taupe with sliver shimmer, slight glitter chunks

Essence eyeshadow in Party All Night : a metallic warm taupe with slight bronze; slightly warmer than Fawn

Luna : a golden linen with slight gold shimmer

J.Cat Beauty Shimmery Powder in 102 Vanilla : a warm frosty light vanilla highlight; not as yellow as Luna

Topaz : a very warm medium brown

NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Dance The Tides : a warm medium brown. almost identical to Topaz, very slightly darker

Papaya : a medium peach coral with slight golden shimmer

NYX eyeshadow in Tropical : a medium peachy coral. almost identical to Papaya, slightly more coral

Moonbeam : a blue toned lilac purple with slight pink undertone

NYX eyeshadow in Purple : a light blue toned purple with fuchsia/pink undertone. much pinker than Moonbeam.

Neela : a bright turquoise with slight silver shimmer

NYX eyeshadow in Irises : a bright turquoise blue with silver shimmer. deeper than Neela.

Midori : a bright kiwi green

Ulta Eye Shadow in Going Green : a bright lime/kiwi green. lighter and more lime toned than Midori.

Blush :

Heavenly : a muted neutral/warm coral with slight peach undertone.

** the shade papaya / NYX Tropical is very similar to the Heavenly, and could act as a dupe.

Liquid Highlighter :

Luminesce : a light yellow gold

** I could not find an affordable dupe of this product, but the shade Luna / J.Cat Beauty 102 Vanilla would offer the same effect.

Eye Pencils :

Daydream : a bright and deep turquoise

Total Intensity by Prestige Eyeliner in Lively Turquoise : a bright aqua turquoise. more frosted than Daydream.

Earth Goddess : a warm deep brown

J.Cat Beauty Roll It Up Auto Eyeliner in 105 Bistre : a warm deep brown. almost identical to Earth Goddess.

JCat Beauty Lipstick Review and Swatches

Hey Everyone! This post is all about the Fantabulous Lipsticks by JCat Beauty. These lipsticks are super smooth and creamy! They  have Vitamin E  in them so they are very moisturizing, which I love because I have very dry lips. When applied, they start out sheer, but can be built up into an extremely vibrant color. I love that you have the option of what intensity you want the color to be!

Although these lipsticks can be worn anywhere from sheer to vibrant, they are literally no fuss, just throw on and go. These colors don’t bleed or smudge, so you don’t need lip liner (unless you want to) or a mirror. They have a semi glossy finish, and stay on all day through eating, drinking, etc.

JCat Beauty is also a cruelty-free company! As if that wasn’t enough, their products are also hypoallergenic and lead-free, so everyone can wear them.

They are normally only $2.49, but right now you can get these 15% off with discount code spring15 until March 15 2013 at http://www.jcatbeauty.com 

Here are the ones I currently have : (PICTURES /SWATCHES BELOW)

(FL105) Prune – a nude mauve pink (similar to MAC Hot Gossip but more pink )

(FL127) Splashed Pink – a blue toned barbie pink with shimmer

(FL114) Wolfberry – a bright coral with a bit of orange

J.Cat Beauty Eternal Shine Lip Glaze Review and Swatches

Hey Everyone! Today I’m really excited to share the Eternal Shine Lip Glaze by J.Cat Beauty with you. These lip glosses are absolutely amazing! Before I get into the colors and such, I first need to say that one of the main reasons I love these products so much is because they are cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, and lead-free! I’m so glad I’ve found a cruelty-free product that is exceptional quality, and not to mention very inexpensive. I have found you usually have to give up one of those things when finding beauty products, but with this brand, you get it all!

Right now I have four of the lip glazes which I purchased at IMATS L.A. this year. The pigmentation, longevity, and smoothness are all fantastic and I have been reaching for them almost everyday! You all know that I have very dry lips and these don’t flake or feather at all. I also love how I can eat and drink without having to touch up my lips a half dozen times like with most lip glosses, especially ones that are in the drugstore price range.

The ones I have currently are:

Carrot – a tangerine tan nude with slight gold shimmer

Thullian Pink – a light baby pink with a blue undertone and pink/silver sparkle

French Rose – a juicy melon pink with slight shimmer (this one is very similar to MAC’s Pink Lemonade)

Red Wine – a bright fuchsia with a blue/purple duo-chrome

Here are the pictures and swatches :

You can get these at http://www.jcatbeauty.com for $2.49 each.

Let me know which ones are your favorites!
