Gosh BB Cream Review & Swatches

Gosh BB Cream

Gosh BB Cream
is available at Duane Reade stores. Actually the entire or most of the Gosh Collection is available at Duane Reade now so if you’ve been wanting to try this brand you can do so now. Plus they have testers available which scores points for extra coolness in my book.

I was highly interested in checking out that Gosh BB Cream after hearing about it some mouths ago so I finally stepped in store to grab one up. This promises to act as your foundation, primer, and moisturizer. I should have known that it wouldn’t be too much of a true BB Cream formula but my curiosity was piqued none the less.

Take a look!

Jill Stuart Brightening Eye Cream Review

Jill Stuart Brightening Eye Cream 1

Jill Stuart Brightening Eye Cream has been apart of my daily AM regime for several months now. I purchased it in the hopes it would brighten up my tired eyes but not necessarily rid me of dark circles.

Imma tell you, if you’ve been searching for an eye cream that will rid you of dark circles just give up. It doesn’t exist. Dark circles are best concealed not treated. Seriously.

Jill Stuart Brightening Eye Cream doesn’t technically address dark circles but does promise to hydrate eyes and “improves the luminosity” of the skin under your eyes.

What does it really do?

Skin Food Platinum Grape Cell Essential BB Cream Review & Swatches

The Skin Food Platinum Grape Cell Essential BB Cream

Skin Food Platinum Grape Cell Essential BB Cream launches several months ago in Korea and is available in two shade selections with an SPF 45.

The grape cell extract in this BB Cream supposedly restores skin elasticity. I didn’t purchase it for that reason though, I did because it contains arbutin which whitens/brightens skin when used over a long period of time. I figured if I loved the formula it would be beneficial to have arbutin in the mix to brighten dull skin and lighten dark spots.

Let’s take a look!

Sleek Makeup Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette Review & Swatches

Sleek Makeup Face Form Palette

Sleek Makeup Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette ($12.49) is a trio of shades for contouring and adding color to the face. Sleek, y u do this to me? I’m a fool when it comes to contouring and haven’t a clue how to use this.

In all seriousness, how many people contour their face? It can’t be many right? I already have a HUGE AM regime when it comes to makeup, adding contouring to the list sounds like a lot more work!

However, those who do contour you’ll love this nifty little set.
