Fusion Of Color Cosmetics

Fusion Of Color Cosmetics Review

Fusion of Color is probably a name you have heard quite a bit about in the blogging community over the years. I know I have read countless reviews of their products which made me so excited to give the brand a try. They have a huge selection of items from eyeshadows, blushes, lip products, foundations and even skin care. Their natural mineral products are free from oil, talc, dyes and parabens and are great for those with sensitive skin. I picked out a few products that I wanted to try out and I am so excited to be sharing my thoughts on them with you!

When searching through all of their eyeshadows it was really hard to pick out which ones I wanted to try since they were all so beautiful. I was really happy to see that they had a large selection of matte eyeshadows and I picked up a few matte shades because I was interested to see how they would perform. Long story short, they don’t apply patchy, blend easily and are a breeze to apply. The shimmers shades also performed wonderfully and I am so impressed with their shadows! The best part is that they are only $4.85. What a steal for such amazing quality.

Silk – a soft iridescent beige with shimmers.

Rendezvous – soft beige with pink shimmers.

Debutante – light pink with shimmers.

Sandalwood – matte yellow toned brown. Great for a transitional crease colour.

Pumpkin Pie -  matte medium warm toned brown. Perfect for adding warmth into the crease.

Java – matte dark warm toned brown.

Stylish – medium brown with a purple undertone with lots of beautiful shimmers.

 

Fusion Of Color Cosmetics Eyeshadow Swatches

 

Candi Coral Lip Bright – When I set my eyes on this lipstick it was love at first sight. It a bright neon coral and is oh so beautiful. The pigmentation is out of this world and this shade will look fantastic during the summer months when you have a bit of a tan going on. They have 8 lipsticks in their Lip Bright collection so definitely check them out if you are wanting to experiment with different lip colours. $5.50 for such a crazy pigmented lipstick? Yes, please!

Emberglow Blush – This blush is a gorgeous warm pinky peach shade which really warms up the skin, while the gold shimmers give you that perfect sun kissed glow. It is very easy to blend onto the cheeks and it reminds me a lot of the Nars Orgasm blush. If you’re looking for a good dupe then definitely check this out as it’s only $7.25!

Perfect Canvas Lip Scrub – I have talked quite a bit about the Lush Lip Scrubs on my blog, but I think I’ve found one that I love more. Enter in the Perfect Canvas Lip Scrub ($7.50). This lip scrub is made with brown sugar which exfoliates the lips nicely while the vitamin E helps nourish the lips. It is gluten free, paraben free, has anti aging properties and even promotes collagen production. My lips feel soft and extremely moisturized after using it and I can’t recommend this enough. It has been my saviour since the cold weather has hit!

New York Haul

TheBeautyCollective | New York Beauty Haul

I just got back from a little mini vacation to New York and I wanted to share some of the beauty items that I picked up while I was there. I didn’t have much of a chance to go makeup shopping as I was doing other things, such as eating delicious food and spending time with the girls, but I did manage to dash into MAC and some other stores and was able to get some products I’ve been wanting for a long while!

The first stop was Walmart and I picked up two of the Maybelline Colour Elixir glosses in Raspberry Rhapsody and Captivating Carnation. I have never been able to pick any of these up since the stores near where I live always has their products opened and tampered with, and they are quite over priced. In New York these were only $6 which was great! Another product that was $6 was the L’Oreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive lipstick in Julianne’s Nude/Barely Peach. I have never been able to find this collection near me yet an was so happy when I found it at the store. This one caught my eye the most and is the perfect every day nude shade.

I stopped into Macy’s and came across their MAC counter and picked up two lipsticks that have been on my wishlist, Plumful and Syrup. Syrup seems to be a bloggers favourite and is quite a beautiful shade. It’s one of those MLBB shades but has a slight hint of purple to it which makes it quite unique. Plumful looks as it sounds, a gorgeous plum shade and it’s perfect for A/W!

Last product I picked up was from Urban Outfitters which honestly was the last store I expected to find this in. I have been lusting over Mario Badescu products for the longest time now and when I saw that they had one of their facial sprays for sale at only $7 I knew it had to be mine. It has such a nice cooling and refreshing effect on the skin and it smells like you’ve walked into a field of roses. How can you go wrong with that?

So that is my little mini beauty haul from New York. Let me know if you have tried any of the products I’ve picked up and what your thoughts are on them!

 

Guest Post: Dandelion Heart Nails

@naailed__it

I am a huge fan of Instagram and Pinterest and love looking through all of the amazing nail accounts and boards. I quickly become jealous of these girls amazing skills and vowed to myself that I will finally get the hang of creating nail designs. But until that time comes, Julie from @naailed__it on Instagram is going to tell us how to get this really cute and easily achievable manicure!
 


 
Hi guys, I’m Julie and I’m a huge nail art fan! I started a few years ago after watching some videos on Youtube and it became an obsession! This nail art design was inspired by a photo I found on Google and is very easy to do. Here is how I created the look:

First I painted all my nails using Jordana French Manicure white polish and then let them dry. Once dry I used the Quo Instant Artist in Black to draw the dandelion on my pointer finger. For the blowing hearts I grabbed my Konad stamper, Salon Express plate SE 21 and Tangtastic nail polish from Avon. When creating the hearts make sure they are pointing in the proper direction so it gives that realistic blowing effect. Once I felt I had enough hearts on my pointer, middle and ring finger I then took my dotting tool and put a few random dots for a fuller look. To top the nail look off I finished with the Nicole High Shine Top Coat.

Thanks to the beautiful Hilary for the feature, and be sure to show us your recreations of this look with the hash tag #nailedit!
