Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Swatches

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Swatches 1

I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream in a prior post. I picked up the shade medium from the UK when it originally launched and since it’s so readily available here in the US now I decided to indulge in the Light/Medium shade selection since I felt like the color I originally purchased was a tad too dark.

Here are some swatches and a few babbles comparing the UK formula to the US one.

Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pots
are darling little tinted lip balms that quite remind me of Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher in packaging style although Jill Stuart has always favored these tiny pots for many of their eye and lip products in the past.

Jill Stuart Patisserie Sugar Glitter Eyes Swatches

Jill Stuart Patisserie Sugar Glitter Eyes Swatches 2

Sugar Glitter Eyes are a selection of five limited edition cream eyeshadows from the Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection.

After swatching these I find they quite remind me of Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color with a thinner consistency and a new package, even the shades are kinda dupes of past shades of Jelly Eye Color. They also remind me of Visee Shower Eyes so the concept of a sparkly liquid/cream shadow with a sponge applicator isn’t a terribly new idea.

Even though they aren’t terribly different from products I already own I still LOVE this style of Japanese Eyeshadow. It’s actually the type of formula that got me hooked on cream eyeshadows.
