MUA Makeup Academy Love Heart Lip Balm Review & Swatches

MUA Makeup Academy Love Heart Lipgloss

Love Heart Lip Balm is a cute little £2 potted lip balm slash lip gloss from British brand MUA Makeup Academy. Available in six shades each little pot is like a conversation heart for V-Day featuring cute little sayings on the cover like “Hot Lips” or “Sweet Kiss”.

Each pot ranges out at around $3 dollars and change but I got it far half off thanks to a recent Facebook Sale. Actually they have a great deal right now for 40% Off your total should you want to grab some goodies as they do ship to the US.

Let’s take a look at the Love Heart Lip Balm!

MUA Makeup Academy BB All In One Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

I recently hauled MUA Makeup Academy BB All In One Beauty Balm during their Facebook sale. I was quite interested in this BB Cream since reading so many reviews on it.

MUA Makeup Academy BB All In One Beauty Balm

It’s available in six shades for £4 each however, during the sale I paid half that price. Seriously, £4 is a good deal without the added advantage of the sale. By the way, the sale is still ongoing, simply use promo code MUA40 for 40% Off your total.

Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review & Swatches

Revlon Photoready BB Cream1

I picked up Revlon Photoready BB Cream on Saturday and blogged it from my car. Revlon BB Cream? Yeah, I was excited.

I actually found it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond marked at a very reasonable $8.29. I was surprised as although BBB is part of Harmons, typically their prices are higher for some odd reason or another. $8.29 seems reasonable enough. I suspect once it hits the standard round of drugstores the price will range from $9.99-$11.99.

Having been very disappointed with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream as well as other US BB Creams I haven’t pinned too many hopes on Revlon Photoready BB Cream.

What did I think?

Here’s a few thoughts!

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream Spring 2013

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream

Rimmel has a new BB Cream that launched earlier this Fall in the UK that’s available in Light and Medium shades.

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation BB Cream is a 9 in 1 formula that primes, mattifies, moisturizers, minimizes the appearance of pores, conceals blemishes, and protects with an SPF 25.

It looks like the newer drugstore BB Creams are stepping up their SPF as Revlon’s new BB Cream has an SPF 30 and now this with an SPF 25. Excellent! Hopefully they turn out more pigmented than the more recent releases.

This will prob launch shortly here in the US but it is already available on ASOS.com for around $13.

I’ll be sure to update as it becomes available in our market!
