I ran into Walgreens several days ago and came across a Borba display that had some skincare options and supplements. I don’t think the items are new however they are new to me.
I’m not sure if it’s exclusive to Walgreens or if other drugstores will carry the collection but compared to other Borba skincare products they were priced at an affordable $17.99-$19.99.
I’ve personally never tried any of Borba’s skincare in the past and I think a combination of the cheaper price tag and the promise of a whooping SPF 100+ had me running to the cash register with my booty.
Today I’ll be taking a look at the Borba Age Defying Super Creme SPF 100+.
Guerlain has introduced three shades of Ombre Cream Eyeshadows with their new Terra Inca Summer Collection 2011.
If you’ve been yearning for the new MAC Big Bounce Eyeshadows but have been crushed at the really bad reviews they have been receiving I highly suggest saving your change and investing in a worthy cream shadow such as these.
At $35 these aren’t cheap but they are incredibly gorgeous with a dreamy formula. I’ll be reviewing shortly but here are a few swatches to wet your appetite.
I used to be one of those girls that believed the perfect Summer eye look started and ended with various shades of aqua.
Sadly, I had to grow up and I can’t quite pull off aqua as well as I once could.
Nowadays I’m all about warm hues of brown and gold for Summer and various shades of softer peach, coral, and orange.
The new Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette is my perfect pick for Spring/Summer looks.
Plus, dude, totally gives me Sophia kinda moments….
Let’s take a peek!
I kinda sorta have a love hate relationship with L’Oreal Infallible Lipgloss but I knew I needed to grab the limited edition Summer shade, Coral Reef, on the double as it reminded me so much of my all time favorite MAC Lipglass, Pink Grapefruit.

I thought it was funny and a bit too grown up for little girl’s when one of Matte’s Monster High Dolls literally waxed poetry about her hairiness and how she had to tame it with a razor (CLICK!).
But I’m always up for something equally fabulous which is what led to my recent discovery of a 1970 Barbie Doll, who…has something very interesting to show you.
Thierry Mugler Cooling Effect Concealer is a product I’ve wanted to try for a very, very long time but for some reason its been on and off my radar and I never actually hauled it until recently.
At $45 this is no cheap concealer and I fear I do fall into the trap of believing a higher price tag will prove a better quality product and in most cases, let’s face it, that’s the truth isn’t it?
The actual product is a light blue concealer which could raise a few eyebrows but I’ve actually successfully used blue concealers before and they do diffuse darkness rather well. The promise of the blue shade and a cooling formula proved to good to resist so finally I took the plunged and purchased this.
Here are my thoughts!
Ahhh Vintage Sister! My favorite indie find!
They make some very fun lip snacks indeed.
They recently released their Spring Collection which includes five new flavors of tasty lip balm!
Ahhh the custom blush, foundation, and lipgloss craze is every popular in the cosmetic world. Most aren’t actually self adjusting in my experience but I’m always tempted to try, try again to see if someone gets it right down the road.
The new Avon Ideal Shade Custom Shade Foundation Lotion might have my shade correct.
L’Occitane embraces the delicate peony flower again this year for their new Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum. Last year, I quite loved their ode to the Peony flower so I’m curious about this year’s fragrance although it does promise to be a more greenier floral.
Let’s have a look!
Avon and Reese Witherspoon have teamed up yet again and are introducing a new trio of fragrances entitled Expressions for Spring and Summer.
The scents, Laugh, Live, and Love are a trio made up to complement your ever mood.
