Pond’s Luminous Clean Facial Cleansers Collection

Ponds Luminous Clean Facial Cleansers Collection

Pond’s Luminous Clean Facial Cleansers Collection is a newly launched selection of facial cleansers that promise to draw out impurities while giving skin a brighter more luminous finish.

This new collection is enriched with moisturizing ingredients and soft white kaolin clay known to gently draw out dirty, makeup, and impurities while improving dull skin and giving it a brighter appearance.

I’m quite excited about this launch as Pond’s already has a whitening range of products available in Asia. It’s nice to see an extension of that offered in the US market.

Too Faced The Return of the Sexy Palette Gets Japanese Eyeshadow Formula Down Right!

Too Faced The Return of the Sexy Palette Fall 2012 2

The newly launched Too Faced The Return of the Sexy Palette is incredible my dear Japanese and Asian Eyeshadow lovers.

You NEED it.

I know many, many of you are fond fans of KATE eyeshadows. Who isn’t? These are soft, sparkly, almost cream-like in texture with a beautiful finish on eyes.

Much to my delight with the Return of the Sexy Palette, Too Faced has launched an innovative new formula to the US market that evokes the spirit of Asian eyeshadow. This is like no eyeshadow we have here launched in the Western market. It’s fabulous they have revamped the formula. Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the original formula in there big o’ box of shadow palettes but I think we all crave variety when it comes to beauty. Those fantastic Shadow Boxes they have released consecutively for the past several seasons are in my stash and I love them dearly. However, I am very pleased with a launch of something new. And new and exciting comes in the form of The Return of the Sexy Palette.

Too Faced The Return of the Sexy Palette Fall 2012 1

Not everyone is going to be happy with this change but those of us who absolutely adore the texture and formula of Japanese Eyeshadows will be very pleased with this one.

I’m testing it out this week and so far it’s been a pure joy to work with.

Review on the way!

But Asian Eyeshadow fans, do keep your eyes on this one, it’s lovely.

Tried it already?

Thoughts?

Do share!

The Body Shop All-In-One Blusher Review & Swatches

The Body Shop All In One Blusher 1

The Body Shop All-In-One Blusher $16 is a newly launched blush available in eight shades. Don’t quote me but I believe these will take over the current blush line.

Allow me to rant for a moment if you will….

Ouch on the $16 dollars.

I don’t mind dishing that much for a mid-range brand but a little shave off of the price wouldn’t hurt Body Shop. Although they do offer a BOGO if you buy two that will slash the price per blush down to $12 each. But I really don’t want to be forced into a two blush purchase….

Is it worth $16?
