Softymo Makeup Remover Sheet Review

Softymo Makeup Remover Sheet

I recently purchased a box of Softymo Makeup Remover Sheets since I’m such a huge fan of Softymo’s Airy Whip. I dunno why everything Softymo releases gets narrowed down to the awesomeness of Airy Whip but that it does.

I should know better than to indulge in these makeup sheets as they are typical blah for removing waterproof mascara.

Perhaps these are different?

Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup Review & Swatches

Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup 1

Neutrogena recently launched a Shine Control Makeup Collection which includes a range of foundation that promise eight hour shine control as well as an SPF 20.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush 1

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush ($28) launched earlier this Spring in a range of sixteen shades. I think these are easily overlooked since Estee Lauder is written off as a more “mature” or “older” brand.

I admit even I have dubbed it “grandma” makeup. But honestly, since creative director, Tom Pecheux, has joined the brand I feel like new life has been breath into many of the collections launched.

I have a hardcore lemming for Tom Ford Blushes however, I’m unsure if I’m ready to take the near $60 plunge to own one of these wonderful creations.

I must say that Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has cured some of those lemmings. These are an affordable, luxury blush that’s well worth checking out. I have a feeling once you tried one you’ll want to grab up all the shades like me.

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Amsterdam Review & Swatches

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Amsterdam 1

I fell in love with NARS Pure Matte Lipstick when they launched the MLBB (my lips but better) lip shade Montego Bay and later for Summer, Moscow fell into my possession and yet again I fell in love with a matte lipstick. Now NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Amsterdam has landed on my desk and yet again, I find myself falling even deeper in love with this formula.

I dunno how but NARS somehow convinced me that matte is a rather nice finish.
