New NYX xtream lip cream

I found these at the NYX display at my local Ulta and I had never seen them before. I had picked up some of the matte lip creams but these are different.

 They are exactly like the matte lip creams except they have a gloss to them.

The three colors I have are candy land, mud peach fuzz, and natural

 They are extremely opaque and pigmented. They also feel amazing on your lips when you wear them.

 Candy land

 Nude peach fuzz

My favorite blending shadows

One eyeshadow color that I always use not matter what look I am doing is a blending color. I put a little bit of this color on my crease brush and sweep and blend right above my crease color. I always use a light neutral color and here are my favorites!

From left to right (Mac blanc type, Mark whisper, Bobbi Brown bone, Mac pigment in naked, Wet and wild brulee ) 

Without fail no matter what look I choose to wear I always use one of these shadows to highlight and blend the crease! They are great colors for any skin tone. They help to blend any shadow you put in your crease. They all range in price but your best deal is wet and wild, I bought it for $.99! AND I had a coupon! It is a great dupe for Mac's blanc type.

From left to right (Mac naked pigment, Wet and wild brulee, Mac blanc type, Mark whisper, and Bobbi Brown bone)

Wet and wild shadow $.99

Mark shadow $6
Bobbi Brown shadow $21
