Vintage Romance | My Eyeshadow Collaboration w/ MBA Cosmetics

Hey beauty babes, welcome and thank you SO much for joining me today! I am jumping up and down exited to share some amazing news with you!! Some of you have already seen and heard but, I hadnt officially mentioned it here on the blog yet.... But I have collaborated with MBA Cosmetics to create my very own eyeshadow collection!!! 😍 I am so beyond thrilled and excited about this!! My heart is overwhelmed with happiness!! This has been an idea that was born over a year ago for these amazing colors as well as the names and to finally see them come to life is just amazing! I wanted to be able to give you all the best look at this collection - so this post includes the shadow descriptions, photos PLUS a swatch video!  

My Collection is called Vintage Romance.... Of course I had to go with a lovey dovey romantic theme! ♥ And the idea for this collection really started with the desire for a specific color (Romance) that I really wanted to see from MBA Cosmetics. I planned to suggest/request the color from the owner (Sherrie) of MBA Cosmetics. But after putting much thought into it, taking some polls and asking questions from other makeup lovers on my Facebook - the idea for a full collection came to me. And when I presented the idea to Sherrie - she amazingly said YES! 

To see my ideas for this collection be brought to life is truly beyond words! Sherrie did an amazing job (as usual) with these eyeshadows. They are loose mineral eye shadows, but they are smooth, creamy, pigmented and oh so blendable! The quality is truly amazing, and I so honored and proud of this collaboration! 
The Vintage Romance Collection consists of 10 loose mineral eyeshadows in the following shades:

❤Romance: Matte deep Maroon red
❤Precious: Mauve Rose Satin Shimmer
❤Ever After: Golden Pinky-Peach with gold sparkle
❤Vintage Lace: Creamy White Shimmer
❤Key to my Heart: Metallic Gold with purple & copper sparkle
❤Hearts A'fire: Matte Sand Beige/slight orange brown shade .
❤Burning Love: Matte Dark Burnt Orange
❤Love Letters: Matte Golden Brown 
❤Kiss Me: Olive Green Satin finish 
❤Sweet Nothings: Matte Black with gold sparkles

I am so obsessed with these colors!! They are going to be perfect for Fall - and really all year around! I also think these are colors that will look great on everyone - no matter your skin tone or eye color. Another desire of mine was to create a collection that was bold and beautiful enough to speak to those makeup junkies (like me) who LOVE color. But also speak to those who are a little more timid and prefer more natural colors. I think these colors are just bold enough, but not too "scary" that they will work for everyone's taste! At least I hope! I would love to know what you think of this collection!!
This collection will be available to purchase together as a set, but you will also be able to purchase each shadow individually if you are only wanting 1 or 2 colors. Individual shadows are just $5, but you can save a little if you purchase the collection as a whole! You can also save 15% with my code AGAPELOVE15 ♥

 Now for the video! If you would like to see these shadows up close alone with some LIVE swatches be sure to watch the video too:

NEW Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Hey beauties! Today I am sharing some lip swatches of Gerard Cosmetics Newest Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick shades! They launched 5 new shades on the 3rd, so for anyone curious about what they look like - you can see them on my lips pictured below - as well as in the video. I found that the description of a few of the shades to be a little off from what they truly look like on me. But of course they will all look a little different depending on skin tone. So, hopefully you find this helpful if you were thinking about buying! I also decided it would be helpful to swatch all of the other Hydra Mattes I own as well. You will be able to see them at the end of the video. And each shade I swatch is listed at the end of this post too. ♥

For those who dont already know, GC's hydra mattes have become one of my favorite Liquid Lipstick formulas. They truly do feel more hydrating and comfortable compared to a lot of other formulas I have tried. And while they are not completely transfer proof - I do find they are don't transfer much. For example I can totally kiss The Hubs without leaving any lipstick on him. And I can kiss the back of my hand without much transfer, but these will leave a residue on a straw and things like that. Which I don't mind. My biggest concern when wearing lipstick is that its long lasting, that it doesn't smear, bleed or get all over the place when kissing my man! The hydra mattes do that for me - PLUS they are comfortable too! So that's a bonus. 

Anyways, because I have been such a fan of GC products, I have recently decided to join their Affiliate program! I don't take or join affiliates lightly, friends! I'll only join if its a brand or products I truly love and purchase myself! So to join their affiliate program means I truly love their products. And if you do too, or have been wanting to try them for yourself - well now you can save 30% with my code 'AGAPE'

Lipsticks featured in this video (* = NEW shade):
Madison Avenue*
Strawberry Fields*
Wine Down*
Knight Rider*
Everything Nice
West Coast
Summer Lovin'

p.s. I mention this in the video, but also wanted to make a mention here that 2 of the newest shades (Nude & Madison Avenue) seem to be a little different in formula than the rest. I found those two to be a little more dry and not as comfortable as the others. I am not sure why - but its something I noticed and wanted to give you all a heads up about!

See all the swatches here:
