Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm1

As you know Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm launched late last week. Urban Decay’s first ever BB Cream leaves a little to be desired in the pigmentation department and acts more as a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. This alone had me worried whether I’d rant or rave it, love it or hate it.

However, after trying it out for the past several days I can honestly say it took me by surprise.

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer for Spring 2013

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer Spring 2013 2

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer has launched in two shade selections at drugstores for Spring 2013. As you know from my early post Olay Fresh Effects is a newly launched Skincare Collection that features a few products that should appeal outside Olay’s typical mature age demographic and may gather the eye of teens and twenty sometimes with this new line.

The addition of this new BB Cream alone should garner interest from a wide variety of women (and men) who are just now learning about BB Creams. I mentioned in a few posts already the BB Cream will get an even bigger push for Spring and here we are already discussing a new one from Olay.

It’s unfortunate they choose to name it BB Cream and Tinted Moisturizer….that should account for how sheer it probably will be.

Garnier BB Cream Renew Miracle Skin Perfector is now available in new Medium/Deep and Deep Shades. Along with the new shades a new oily skin formulation will become available shortly at drugstores.

I’ve reviewed this BB Cream in a few prior posts and I’m not a big fan in all honesty but I’m sure it’ll be cause for some excitement that it’s available in darker shades to suit more skin tones.

Trish McEvoy Instant Solutions Beauty Balm SPF 35

Trish McEvoy Instant Solutions Beauty Balm SPF 35

Very excited about the launch of the new Trish McEvoy Instant Solutions Beauty Balm SPF 35. I don’t think Trish McEvoy makeup gets enough good press around here. I absolutely love most of her line so when I heard she was launching a BB Cream I was ecstatic to say the least.

I’m a little overdoing BB Creams lately and have a little too many in rotation and quite a fair few to test so I’m trying to not purchase anymore until I finish using and testing the ones I already have but this might tempt me.
