As it extension of their new bright and vibrant Summer Color Collection Maybelline has introduced a limited edition Great Lash Mascara in a teal and green color as well as a Define a Line Eyeliner in the same shades.
I didn’t pick it up as I must be one of the few women in promise me green, teal, or hell even rainbow lashes and it still won’t tempt me into purchasing a tube of Great Lash!
If you’re so inclined this collection is available now at drugstores.
With the release of Deathly Hallows Part 2 come July we finally, with a heavy heart, get to lay our obsession with Harry Potter to rest.
Memo to self:
Bring tissues to premiere.
As we say our final good byes we also get to embrace the growth and maturity of stars like Emma Watson because let’s face it, Emma is here for the long run and we’ll be witness to her climb into Hollywood legend ever after the madness of HP has died down.
Emma recently got down to work for her Lancome ad campaign that I leaked to you a few months ago with famed fashion photographer Mario Testino in March in Paris.
This was actually the same day Lancome officially launched Emma Watson as one of their newest faces.
Remember when the Buxom Stay There Eyeshadow was released and I, well we, were puzzling over why they were named after dogs….WTH was that all about eh?
It’s puppy love as the dogs belong to the actual Buxom girls featured in many of the Bare Escentuals Collection.
Useless trivia fact of the day.
Speaking of those touchable eyeshadows, I do believe the new Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay There Eyeshadow Palette is on my most wanted list.
Dead or alive.
If you’re already using BB Creams chances are you dropped the words “Tinted Moisturizer” from your makeup life’s vocabulary. I know I kinda have.
But being that Summer will be here soon and the weather will be warmer many of us want to start using lighter coverage on our faces and if we have to trust ourselves to a TM might as well be from our BBF (best brand friend), Bobbi Brown.
Dr. Jart recently launched two BB Creams to the US Market available exclusively at Sephora. This is a big step for the US market however sadly, my experience so far with BB Creams here in the US is lacking.
Dr. Jart, BRTC, Missha, Skin79, etc…are all popular BB Creams available in Korea and household names however larger brands we all know and love also have BB Creams available within the Asian market such as Dior, MAC, Lancome, etc….
This Summer, I believe you’ll start seeing the ripple effect of Dr. Jart’s US launch. It’ll be small at first but by Fall, BB Creams will finally be something that the US market will know of and hopefully embrace.
I already have confirmed news that Smashbox has a BB Cream of sorts that will be available exclusively from QVC. I also hear rumors of MAC finally bringing their BB Cream to the states and also a whisper about Clinique possibly launching one.
My question is, which brand would you like to see release a BB Cream here in the US?
Perhaps your favorite high end brands like Dior and Chanel?
Or maybe middle end brands such as Urban Decay or Too Faced?
Or maybe you want to hit up your local drugstore and grab one from Revlon or Covergirl?
Either way BB Creams are finally launching here in the US but whether or not our market actually embraces them or not only time will tell.
