Here's a round-up of my favorite Snapchat Stories! See others HERE
Follow me on Snapchat at averysweetblog

Maybelline Color Jolt 

(via Michelle of ReadySetGlamour at ReadySetSnaps Snapchat & Maybelline Snapchat)

When I first saw these swatches, I immediately thought of Too Faced's Melted Lipsticks. YouTuber Michelle of ReadySetGlamour confirms both the similarities and differences. They are MUCH cheaper than the Too Faced Ones ($7-9). I'm loving Stripped Down and Never Bare. Michelle did a video for this. Definitely check it out HERE. These are available now at Walmart (her video has the links). 

Ipsy August Glam Bag Photoshoot (via ipsyofficial, chrisspy snapchat)

I've never had a slumber party like this! LOL I thought this was so cute. Colorful wigs, beautifully decorated sweets, fun clothes AND MAKEUP! I wish all of my beauty blogger friends lived nearby! I would definitely love to throw a party like this.  I learned to put powder on shiny wigs to take out the shine. hmmm

Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Parfum

Mon Paris is the newest perfume by YSL! I don't know what it smells like, but I am in love with the bottle. It's just a bottle with a ribbon around it, but something about it looks so sophisticated. LOL 
It's available now.

Here are the notes:
Top Notes: Strawberry, Raspberry, Bergamot, Calone
Middle Notes: Pear, Orange Flower, Jasmin Sambac, White Peony, Datura
Base Notes: Patchouli, White Musk, Ambrox, Cedarwood, Crystal Moss

Paris Hilton Gold Rush (via alluremag snapchat)

Paris Hilton has a new fragrance. It's called Gold Rush. Doesn't it look like a female Oscar? LOL I was smitten with the cotton candy, sprinkled with gold dust and sparkling water. Can we substitute champagne? No other information on this, but Coming Soon.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick Cocktails (via abhcosmetics snapchat)

Mix lipsticks? Yes Please! ABH has put together a list of formulas (click to make bigger) to make other color lipsticks! MUA have been doing it for awhile, but I bet this will be an upcoming trend. I think it's cool. I already mix body washes! :P

Anastasia Beverly Hills Nude Lip Series (via abhcosmetics snapchat)

ABH always brings the swatches! Last week it was purple. This week, NUDES!
I love Undressed! See my review here.

The NEW Tarte Nude Blushes (via tartecosmetics snapchat)

I ordered these! Well, I have all except Exposed. So I will be doing a review soon. Stay tuned. But here are some excellent swatches. Aren't they PRETTY!?!

New NARS Highlighters (via narsissist snapchat)

So NARS is coming out with highlighters. I like Option 1 and 2, but I don't know about 3.
These are nice, but I don't think I would buy them. Maybe I need to see more swatches.

Kat Von D Serpentina Palette (katvondbeauty snapchat)

Finally got a first look at Kat Von D's Serpentina Palette. Interesting colors. I bet the pigment is beautiful. I'm not really big on colors, but this should be great for anyone that loves them. 

Milani (via milanicosmetics snapchat)

Matte Liquid Lip Creme Metallics! Ok. I didn't know about these. For those that think metallics might be too much, this is a toned down version. More swatches on their site.

Lime Crime Superfoils

We finally get to see these! They look beautiful on the skin and can be used all over. I can't wear these everyday, but I'm definitely thinking the purple, green and gold for Mardi Gras here in New Orleans.

Nikkie Tutorials (via Jeffree Star Snapchat)

YouTuber Nikkie Tutorials collaborated with Too Faced on a palette! It looks similar to the Stardust one. Jeffree Star went to her party. I can't get over that real COTTON CANDY wig on that mannequin. LOL 

Maybelline Baby Lips Glow (via maybelline Snapchat)

This is one of those MOOD lip balms. I broke down and purchased Frog Prince by Lipstick Queen. I'll do a review soon. This seems to give her a nice pink pout.

Pinky Rose Swatches (via pinkyrose snapchat)

I'm learning a little more about Pinky Rose! They swatched some more, so that's good! 

Smashbox Always On Lipstick and Halo Highlighting Wand 

(via smashboxsnaps & camilabravo snapchat)

Always On Lipstick! That could be good & bad. LOL The colors are very pretty. Smashbox provided a couple of swatches, but YouTuber Camila Bravo (THANK YOU) swatched all that were sent to her. And look at the cool highlighting wands! 2 colors: Gold & Pearl (not PERAL LOL)

Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powders (via artistcouture snapchat)

Everybody know MAC DADDY!?! He can rock some makeup! He has his own brand called Artist Couture. Just found his snapchat. Gave us some swatches of his Diamond Glow Powder Highlighters.

Kimora Lee Simmons KLS 2017 Photo Shoot (via KimoraLeeSimmons snapchat)

Yes! Kimora has Snapchat! I've been a long time fan of hers. Followed her modeling days. I wasn't a fan of BabyPhat, but she's moved on to KLS. The clothes are much more sophisticated and I love them. Her daughters are in High School in Sweden and participated in a photo shoot for her collection! I remember when they were babies! HaHaHa Miss J was there to share his expertise. The shots came out really good. Use to watch Kimora Life in the Fab Lane. I still have my DVDs. LOL

Chrissy Ford in Tibi (via harpersbazaarus snapchat)

I've never shopped Tibi before, but after seeing this dress. I need to! Isn't this a great dress?

Carolina Herrera Resort  (via TheCoveteur Snapchat)

I'm in love with the Carolina Herrera Resort Collection. The rack of black dresses...I'll take all!

Dolce Gabbana and Other Pretty Things (via TheCoveteur Snapchat)

I just ordered some Dolce & Gabbana makeup (my first)! I love The Coveteurs Snapchat! To see anything D&G up close and in person is a treat. Hand over that hand painted lemon bag!

Grease Live (via Jessica Radloff snapchat)

Grease Live happened the beginning of this year, so I was a little confused. But this was the Live For Your Consideration Emmy Event. Pink Ladies & T Bird cookies. Floral milkshakes. But can we just admire Julianne Hough's red dress and Vanessa Hudgens black dress. DREAMY!

Popsugar's Netflix Documentaries That Will Change The Way You Think About Food

(via popsugar website)

So if you're dreaming about burgers & milkshakes, this should make you stop! LOL I've heard of some of these, but I've never watched them. Gotta change that!

Popsugar's DIY Eye Makeup Remover Wipes (via popsugar snapchat)

There's a DIY for everything now. LOL I thought this was so cute.



  1. I love the ipsy photo shoot, I new about the DIY seen it at pinterest great info doll.

  2. Those DIY Eye Makeup Remover Wipes sound great and the way they presented it was adorable! Happy Sunday Kim!

  3. So many great products to try! Kimora Lee Simmon's kids are getting so big! I just to watch her show when they were itty bitty. They look like they have their mom's modelling talent. I have read that coconut oil is a great eye makeup remover. That is definitely a try for me next time I am wearing it since I keep it in the bathroom as a moisturizer.

  4. I just watched Michelle's video as Maybelline sent me a PR package with everything new (and all shades yay) so I'm really excited to play with my Maybelline Color Jolts!

  5. Ooh those Maybelline Colur Jolts look amazing, wonder if we will get them here in the UK (fingers crossed we will). Loving snapchat lately x

    Beauty with charm

  6. Aww how adorable ipsy photo shoot looks! Maybelline color jolts are amazing, I hope they will release it everywhere!

  7. It would be fun to attend your slumber make - up party. I have the Paris perfume from Saint Laurent which is my favourite to use for spring and summer. This new one Mon Paris looks so nice too. I got to try it.

  8. Those maybelline color jolts are so petty. Since I never tried the too faced melted ones, I might give these a try! I love the strip down shade too! I agree, I wish all of my blog friends lived by me too so we could all have a slumber party and talk about makeup lol! From the swatches, I love every single one of those ABH nude glosses!! It's hard to even pick which one is my favorite. I'm excited for your review on the new tarte blushes. I have the exposed blush and haven't used it in forever so I pulled it out yesterday and it totally made me want some of the new ones, and the exposed highlight looks gorgeous. The Nars highlighters look petty too! And that Kat Von D palette, ahhhh!!! I've been wanting to play more with colorful shadows so I might have to pick that up. Those lime crime supeefoils look stunning! I really think I might have to get one! The smash box highlighters look gorgeous too, I'm seriously going crazy over all these new highlighters every company is coming out with! I've watched a few food documentaries before. They are super insightful into what we are actually eating.

  9. The Dolce Gabbana and Other Pretty Things (via TheCoveteur Snapchat)snaps are amazing!! I want everything Lol. Those pom pom heels and printed sunglasses are so fierce.

  10. The thing that stood out to me most about this round up is the fact that Paris Hilton is still making fragrances! I worked as a perfume salesgirl when her first fragrance debuted (with very limited success) and I'm totally shocked she would make another one, particularly so many years later. I'm always intrigued by the Nars highlighters, although I'm still really on the fence about highlighters in general!

  11. wow these pictures are all so great and the swatches are so handy to screenshot rather than trying to think back after 24 hours is up about which ones you liked! Great idea xx

  14. Ah cant wait Maybelline Color Jolt lippies are out even here, is the first time I see them and Im already drooling over them! The new YSL perfume is so chic, so curious to smell it! Happy Monday Kim! xo

  15. Kim, if we were in the same city,we should totally do a dress up party with blogger pals! Ooh and the never bare is gorgeous - I could see you rocking it!

    Tamara -

  18. I want to try those new Maybelline Jolt lip colors and the Tarte Exposed highlight is so pretty! I remember when Kimora's daughters were babies too!

  19. Oh my I want at least half of the beauty stuff. The YSL perfume sounds like something I need in my life, will have to check it out. And I need to try those Maybelline lip colors, they all look totally gorgeous. Thx for sharing. Happy new week, Kim.

  20. I've said it before and I'll say it again...Kim, your Snapchat recaps are seriously not good for the wallet~ :P I really want to try that YSL perfume. And thanks for the heads up about the Milani metallics. Did not know about that either!

  21. Hi Kim, another fun post! I really want to try out the Maybelline lipgloss and it does look like the too faced and I like this price much better! LOL. the blushes look really nice. I love that you are doing these fun posts too. :)

  22. Yes to the Maybelline and Milani lippies! Also, I'll take the Tarte blushes...oh, who am I kidding?! I'll take everything, please! lol Seriously love these recaps, but I think my shopping list is a mile long now!

  23. i love those lipglosses,they look amazing so pretty
    Beautiful shades

  24. Oooh, I love this style of post as I don't follow a lot of bloggers/youtubers on there. I absolutely love the look of the new Maybelline Color Jolt's, i haven't heard of them before and I doubt they won't be in the UK for a while which is a shame! xo

  25. I am seriously glad that you are doing this Snapchat series, Kim, it's super helpful for me who doesn't have an account. I'm really loving the look Smashbox highlighting wand and Tarte Exposed. Looking forward to your review, Kim!

  26. yay...i needed to find some good snappers to follow. love ABH.

  27. The last time I saw Miss J was when America's Next Top Model made sense. I heard the show got cancelled. It's good to see him here sharing his expertise. The lipsticks and the emojis had me laughing. Great post hun!

  28. Wow, I really loved this post! I hadn't seen Miss J in the longest, it's great to know she's doing just great! I also adored Carolina Herrera's Resort Line, every season seems to get better and I seem to get more obsessed with her designs! I'm also really sad that ULTA gifted me a free sample of Smashbox's matte liquid lipstick. When I got it at the time, I wasn't all too interested in it (I had NO idea it was matte), and now that it is gaining a lot of popularity I cannot seem to find it! Bummer!
