The Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette Review & What to get at the 50% off Sale

The name of this palette and the shadow's had my little rock & roll heart in it's hands before I even opened it. The balm gets me every time with their cheeky names and thoughtful art work. What's awesome for us is that the makeup is right on par with the presentation. The Balm Jovi Face Palette is your backstage pass to looking like a Rockstar. It contains 12 eyeshadow's, a highlighter, matte peach blush, and two multi-purpose lip and cheek colors.
Before I even get to the review I have to mention that in celebration of the new website launch is having a CRAZY 50% off site wide sale on April 1st. for 24 hours. No joke! UPDATE: Just announced on their facebook The Sale is On! April 8th 10am April 8th- 10am April 9th (PST).

If you're looking for some product reccomendations from the line I picked out my favorite's...ALL or any of the blushes they are amazing, Mary-Lou Manizer, Prom Queen Staniac, Nude palette's, Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer, and Sexy Mama Translucent Powder. Not Pictured: Bahama Mama Bronzer. A bronzer that actually isn't orange! On my shopping list are a couple of the new blushes being released and the balm girl's lipstick's.

The New MonroeMisfitMakeup Facebook Page

You can now join me at the new MMM Facebook page!

The lovely Celeste had started this page for me and has kindly let me take over as the moderator. There are a few others out there, but this is the only one now maintained by myself. I'm annoyingly private so I keep my personal facebook, instagram, twitter etc. well just that..private. I wouldn't consider anyone my "fans" so I felt kind of silly having a fan page, but I've wanted to get more interactive with my readers and those of you who dig the makeup art too and I think this will be a great way to do it. Hopefully I'll stay active with it...sooo much social media overload :)

I hope you'll like me there and we can chit chat, i'll post blog updates, host giveaways, but most of all I would love it if you'd share your own makeup creations with me. I love being inspired by you guys!

FOTDS: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Neon Red, Shocking Coral, & Vivid Rose

MORE Lipstick...someone get me an intervention. Now that colorful eyeshadow is off my radar it's been replaced with a strong lip color addiction :) I can't resist a daring lip and certainly not one that's drugstore cheap. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids are straight up amazzzing. Saturated in color, creamy, long wearing, comfortable on the lips, all those wonderful things we desire in a lipstick.
I wanted to buy them all but settled on: Neon Red, Shocking Coral, and Vivid Rose. I wore all three shades over the weekend with Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette on the eyes.

Neon Red
Don't let the neon part scare you, this isn't uv rave neon, just a ultra bright glossy red with a hint of orange.
Shocking Coral
I couldn't get this shade to photograph true to color whatsoever. It's a vibrant pinky coral, but deeper and more pink than it appears on me. The kind of color I want to be wearing when I'm 80, it's definitely rockin Grandma :) (sweater courtesy of:
Vivid Rose
Vivid Rose delighted me the most out of the bunch because it's unlike anything else I have in my collection. Not quite hot pink or red but a perfect marriage of the two. This rosy fuschia lends itself very well to modern pin up looks or as I wore it for a glammed up night out. The name is just pretty too :)

Along with the Milani Color Statement Lipstick's these are some of the best bright's you can find at the drugstore, they rival any high end brand's.The drugstore lines are killing it lately!
