Dior Hydra Life BB Creme SPF 30 PA +++

Dior Hydra Life BB Creme SPF 30 PA +++

Dior recently brought their White Reveal BB Cream over to the US. It’s available now at Nordstrom and other fine retailers for $50. This was originally introduced in Asia so it’s great to see it finally here in our market.

Another exciting release is the new Dior Hydra Life BB Creme SPF 30 PA +++ (although White Reveal has the longer/better protection with an SPF 50). HydraLife BB Creme provides complexion-enhancing and even-toning properties of a foundation.

This single step BB Cream acts as a primer, foundation, SPF, and base all in one.

This one is a little more costly at $56 (White Reveal is $50) but knowing Dior it’ll be worth it.

Available now at Sephora and Dior counters.

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Rimmel has introduced six shades of 1000 Kisses Lasting Finish Lip Tint in the UK. This is basically a spot on dupe for Revlon’s Just Bitten Lip Stain as it’s the same design which contains a felt marker lip stain on one end and a soothing, clear lip balm on the other.

I imagine we’ll see these launched for Summer here in the US.

I’m not sure I need another lip stain particularly one that mimics the exact idea, design, and concept as one I already own but I’m a sucker and probably will indulge.

What do you think?

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N 18 Bird Flutter Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N 18 Bird Flutter 1

Although I’ve reviewed Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color a few times already, I thought I’d haul out the very delightful, limited edition shade, Bird Flutter, for a swatch and a play today.

I’m obsessed with all things coral and peach particularly when Spring and Summer hit and this is a lovely shade of peachy coral that shouldn’t be missed. This shade is also one of the more vibrant ones I’ve seen in this range since the Jelly Eye Colors normally favor lighters shades of gold, pink, etc…
