2nd Love Cosmetics is a brand I've heard a little about in the past, but I had never tried. Thankfully, they reached out to me to try out some of their products, and I'm very impressed so far!
The first product I tried was the Luxe Lace Lipstick which costs $5.59 and comes in 12 different shades. I have the shade Dainty, which is a gorgeous hot pink. The packaging is very pretty, and the product has a great vanilla scent. I'm happy with the comfortable texture and decent lasting power on this lipstick. It does accentuate dry patches on my lips though, so I have to make sure to exfoliate before applying this.
The Pout Plumping Lip Gloss is $4.99 and comes in 6 different shades. The shade I have here is called Soul Mate, and it's a medium-pink shade. The gloss has nice color payoff, while still giving that sheer, glossy appearance. When first applied, I notice the tingling sensation, but I don't notice much plumping. My lips are already pretty full on their own, so I'm not sure if this would be more effective on others. I do really like this gloss though, and it's not sticky in the slightest!
Warmer weather is coming soon, and I always start reaching for cream cheek products when it gets warm outside. The Quick Stick Cream Blush is my favorite product. It is a cream blush in stick form, and it costs $4.99. It's available in 6 shades, and I have the shade Catalina. This gorgeous warm pink shade easily glides onto my skin and blends effortlessly. And it lasts almost all day on my skin. I definitely want to try more of these in the future. And did I mention that this product smells like raspberry candy?! I love it!
Here are swatches (from left to right) of the Cream Blush, the Lipstick, and the Lip Gloss.
The Glitzy Glam Eye Palette comes in 4 different shades and costs $4.99. The shade I have here is called Blitz Glitz, and it contains 5 gorgeous, shimmery shadows. Each of these shadows is very unique because of the multicolored aspect. When you swirl your brush into the shadow, mixing the colors, you get a color slightly different than you would expect when looking at the pan. These colors are great for the upcoming spring season.
The Baked Eyeshadow Duos are $8.99 and come in 4 different shades, which each contain to beautiful shadows. The shade pictured below is called Go Green and it contains a light green with finely milled golden shimmer, and a dark, olive green. These shadows were smooth, and easy to blend and work with, and I was impressed with the quality because I don't normally like baked eyeshadows

And in this look I used all of the products talked about here except the Glitzy Glam Eye Palette (I'll have a spring makeup tutorial posted soon using that palette):
