Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 Review & Swatches

Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 1

What’s better than a single Sleek Make Blush? Three of ‘em! There’s just something about variety when it comes to makeup and more is always the order of business as far as I’m concerned.

Sleek recently introduced their Blush by 3 Palettes which includes three next to full size blushes in a single slim line compact. I actually ordered ALL the shades after getting a press sample for review but I had issues with my order boo! So I only have the one shade to review for you today but will follow up with swatches of the others when they arrived.

Let’s take a look!

Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35 US Launch
Bobbi Brown BB Cream has launched in the US.

The new Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35 has launched at Nordstrom.com peeps.

Shades:

  • Extra Light
  • Fair
  • Medium
  • Medium to Dark

Moisturize, perfect and protect instantly and over time. It’s easier than ever to get great skin with Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream SPF 35. Inspired by a skincare and makeup hybrid that’s a cult favorite, as the formula combines moisturizer, treatment, SPF and a lightweight foundation into one. Plus, it’s available in five skin tone shades carefully formulated by Bobbi herself. Consider it your skin’s new best friend.

Features and benefits: Water-attracting molecules boost hydration. Light-reflecting pearls brighten dull skin. Botanical extracts and caffeine reduce discoloration and redness. Pore-reducing peptides minimize fine lines. Broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and antioxidants fend off future damage.

If you missed my review of it you can click here to see what the good word is.

Looks like the main differences between the Asian and US release is shade selection but other than that the formulas seem similiar.

Looking forward to checking out the US version anyway, count me curious if the formula is spot on for the Asian release.

Are you curious about trying it?

Not so much?

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks EX03 Review & Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks EX02 Review

Although I reviewed and kinda sorta trashed the Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Blush in a past post I was terribly tempted by the limited edition EX03 shade that was released with the Lunasol Summer 2012 Collection.

This shade combines a pretty orange and a peachy pink in one powder that can be used together or separately.

Take a look!

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 was released in Japan this Spring and recently we got got the launch of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil–Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++ here in the US.

Interesting that the formulas appear quite similar but offer different levels of protection.

I got mine from Japan however, I swatched the version we have available here in the states and I’ll say both have great formulas that seem pretty much identical outside the fact we have an SPF 42 and Japan offers the SPF 50 option. The version here in the US is more of a milky liquid or what I refer to as a traditional SPF formula versus the creamier version of the Japanese release.

Let’s take a look!
