Soap & Glory Love at First Blush Review & Swatches

Soap Glory Love at First Blush 1

I wanna say it really was Love at First Blush when it comes to Soap & Glory’s new Multi-Shade Shimmer Powder and Blush. But ado, it didn’t work for me. And what a terrible shame because it’s really quite pretty.

I’ve been reviewing Soap & Glory’s Cosmetics the last few days because I was kinda hopeful that they might pop up this Summer at Sephora finally. It’s been a few months since the original launch in the UK so I do wonder if at some point we’ll finally see them here. I’m dying to try the lipsticks but not quite ready to commit without seeing them in person.

Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Dior Diorsnow Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++ 6

Although expensive and on the sheer side, I have to admit my all time favorite BB Cream is Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme SPF 50 PA+++.

It’s not only successfully perfects and creates beautifully flawless skin but it’s a foolproof BB Cream that whitens, brightens, and offers a high level of SPF.

This is what BB Cream should be about.

Soap & Glory Cheekmate Cheek & Lip Stain Review & Swatches

Soap Glory Cheekmate Cheek Lip Stain 001

Soap & Glory Cheekmate is a cheek and lipstain the brand introduced a few months ago. Soap & Glory roamed deeper into the cosmetic world with this release as they never really did color cosmetics.

I’m a little sad we haven’t yet seen the cosmetic line here in the US but I look forward to the release.

Let’s take a look!

Cheek stain lovers will want a look at this one.

L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream Review & Swatches

LOreal Nude Magique BB Cream 13


L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
launched a few short months ago in the UK. I purchased mine from England within weeks because I was so terribly curious about a drugstore BB Cream. Since Garnier was one of the only drugstore BB Creams within the US at the time of this release I was terribly curious how brands like Maybelline, L’Oreal, etc….would do with the formula.

Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.

Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.
