Product Review: Sally Hansen, New York Color, and Black Up Cosmetics

I promised everyone that I would do some product reviews as soon as I got the chance. This weekend I met up with my very talented hairstylist/makeup artist Valerie Mateo to try out some new makeup. The products that I really loved that she used on me were the bronzer, eyeliner, and lip lacquer. 
She used the Sun' n' Bronze Coral Samba Bronzer from New York Color for color and contouring. I love the way these colors blend together and gave me a nice natural glow. The eyeliner she used was from New York Color in Extra Black. The felt tip eyeliner definitely helped to create that dramatic cat-eye effect that I live for, and is long lasting for all day use. On my lips I'm wearing Black Up Cosmetics lip lacquer in VL09. This color is perfect for that nice nude/subtle color.

New York Color Sun' n' Bronze Bronzing Powder $4.99
Black Up Cosmetics Lip Lacquer $22.50
New York Color High Definition Liquid Eyeliner $3.99

I pampered myself this weekend with a mani/pedi also. I used the Sally Hansen ColorFoil Nail Makeup in Titanium Flush. This is a fun metallic pink color that leaves your nails with a great shine. I got my nails done a few days ago, and so far no chipping!

Sally Hansen ColorFoil Nail Makeup $7
