Pinnacle Cosmetics

By Stephanie1 @NewBeautyReview
Private label makeup has always appealed to me because it's basically the SAME thing we get in stores only less expensive. I've tried other brands but was really impressed with what I found at the Pinnacle Cosmetics booth at The Makeup Show LA! They have a full line of products but I picked these...
(L to R) Luxe extreme Lip Gloss, 5 Crushed/Loose Mineral Shadows, Sheer-Glo Shimmer Lotion
Pinnacle Cosmetics
The lip glosses smell & feel EXACTLY like MAC's Lipglass...only they were half the price. The loose mineral eye shadows were more like pigments and the Sheer-Glo shimmer lotion was so amazing, I think I actually clapped when the lovely Vita gave me one to try!

She also gave me a choice of lip gloss and I picked the Luxe Extreme formula because she said it was the thickest and I personally feel they last longer but they are very sticky so it's a personal preference. It doesn't bother me at all!
The Sheer-Glo shimmer lotion can be used alone on the cheeks or as a highlighter. It can also be mixed into your foundation for a "lit from within" type of glow. I also bought 5 of the loose mineral crushed shadows. I'm not the biggest fan of mineral makeup but I thought they were pigments at first because they were so strong. I was sold on them the second I tried one. I believe they can also be used wet for a more intense look.
(L to R) Slip On, Purest, Ignite, Mellow, Bar Hop, Metalico, Fake-It

The Slip On lip gloss is actually a color I don't have so it kind of jumped out at me. I knew it would wear well alone or over other lipsticks in the same family of pinks/purples.
Purest is a shimmery snow white and because it's so finely milled, I figured I could also use it as a highlighter.
 I loved Ignite because it's a blue/black and I know it will pop if I wear it over these new deep blue eye liners I got from Auraline (also private label).
Mellow is pure gold! It's gorgeous! I got it because there was no way I was not getting it! Lol! Funny thing is, I don't even wear gold but I knew I had to have it in my kit because someone will fall in love with it!
Bar Hop (I love the name! Lol) is a deep plum and it's also a shade I didn't already have. I've worn it 2ce already! Once as a smokey eye and the other just in my crease, amazing both times!
Metalico is a light gunmetal which I knew would be perfect for the days/nights I wanted to wear a gunmetal/grey smokey eye.
There were a few shades of the Sheer-Glo shimmer lotion but Fake-It was my favorite because it's closest to what I wear usually which is Orgasm (NARS). I have so many highlighters but this shade works so well with everyone so I figured I could always use more. It's different than the NARS shimmer lotion because it's a little thicker & more intense, which I liked.
I wish I had gotten more of their makeup but there's always online shopping! Lol!
