Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15 for Spring 2013

Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15

Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15 ($20) is one of the latest drugstore BB Creams to hit the market for Spring 2013. As we get closer to the Holidays end and Spring starts down its nose at us we’ll probably start to see the next generation of BB Creams hitting mid-range counters and of course, drugstore shelves. Lumene has a new BB Cream launching soon as well as Urban Decay (two to look forward too!). CC Creams will also see some development come Spring with a larger focus for Summer 2013 I’m sure.

Iman’s $20 price tag isn’t drugstore beauty budget friendly but it might just be worth checking out if you’re a deeper skin tone!

Cosme Decorte AQMW Makeup Coffret for Holiday 2012

Cosme Decorte Maggie Deco AQMW Makeup Coffret Holiday 2012

I got my Cosme Decorte AQMW Makeup Coffret from Japan yesterday! This is a Holiday 2012 gift set that features an eyeshadow quad, lipgloss, and powder. I’ve been collecting these for a few years now as they are a more affordable way to indulge in the line considering how costly it is per product.

The set is 7875 yen and was released in Japan at the beginning of November. I typically ask a friend to get it for me but this year I got it from Gooddealer who had it for a reasonable $92.

Let’s take a look!
