All About Icing Products

For me Icing products are definitely a hit or miss. What I got from Icing the pat few weeks:

1. Angled Brush $5
2. Icing Nail Polish in $3
3. Flaunt Beauty- My Sultry Palette $1 (on sale)

1. Angled Brush: I purchased this because I really needed one, the only one I had was from my Milani Brow Fix and it was getting beat up, it really wasn't made for long time use + I use that one to apply my gel liner as well. When I got the Icing brush home I realized that it was a larger brush when it came to the actual bristles and that is a downfall for me. Because of how large/wide it is, I really don't like to use it for gel liner, it doesn't give me an accurate, steady line. Not as precise as my Milani brush so I do use my Icing one as my brow brush and the Milani one for gel liner still.

2. Nail Polish in Preppy Purple- My favorite color for the season is the pastel purple so when I seen this I really wanted to try it and was so exited about it! Even tho I do have an addiction of sorts to this purple pastel, I had one from Avon (and later bought one from Sally Hanson). When I got it home, I realized it wasn't that true pastel color I was hoping it would be, it does have a shimmer to it which makes it look a little on the silver side. Wasn't what I thought I was purchasing so Icing nail polish can be deceiving! The color isnt bad. Beware: you do have to apply a few coats (3) to get the color shown!

                     So for the most part they look the same color, Right?

Kind Of...I guess it was fate for me to pick up the Icing polish just because I already have 2 other pastel purples. But, I was thinking the preppy purple was going to be more of a pastel and less of a shimmer. Now, if I am ever going to buy polish from Icing I will swatch them at the store. (no your not allowed, but it is hard to define the true color from seeing it in the bottle.)

3. Flaunt Beauty- My Sultry Palette. This I am really impressed with! First of all the packaging is intriguing and adorable so that is obviously a huge plus! For a dollar you cannot beat this very highly pigmented palette. It comes with 2 shadows, 1 blush, 2 glosses. The shadows are very shimmery! well not too shimmery, they have just enough shimmer. With the exception of the blush which isn't very pigmented, but for a dollar it is a wonderful deal! Enough said, the pictures will tell all:
                           "I love the print that looks like lace, so cute!"

2 on the Left are Shadows: Blue Hypnose Brown Smolder. Middle: Blush Warm Rose. Right: Lip Glosses: Top Spicy Bottom Bewitched

Swatched with one stroke name from left to right: (Shadows) Hypnose, Smolder (Blush) Warm Rose (Glosses) Spicy, Bewitched

All and all my favorite item is the Sultry Palette! Do you have any Icing products that you love or hate? I hope everybody is enjoying their Sunday! Thanx for Reading too!
