Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer Swatches

Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer

One more sleep until Batman and no my azz is not getting up at 12:01 AM to see it. This is not Harry Potter people, we can wait until Friday night like grown adults (there was some sarcasm in there I’m sure!).

Excited?

As for me, I wanna see Christian Bale flip out when he’s in the Bat suit. Just go ape $hit. He’s so sexy when he’s Mr Angry Entitled Actor. “I are an actor and I can rip you a new azzhole if I want to!” Go on with your bad self Christian, you know I love you! (Video not work safe, may contain cuss words).

He mentioned he couldn’t cope with the suit when he first tried it on and even thought he might have to reconsider the role because of it. I bet! That thing would give me a severe case of claustrophobia. Danai Gurira did a plaster for Michonne which was displayed at Comic Con (you could step into a “pets” role and take a photo with her) and I can’t help but admire celebrities for going to such extremes. At least with the bat suit they aren’t pouring plaster over your head and giving you two straws to breath out of.

P.S. I know some of you were terribly interested in the Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer I recently reviewed.

As you know I purchased shade 21 but there is a shade 23 available. After my review I got a ton of e-mails asking after 23 and did I know how much darker it was.

Well…

Turns out there isn’t a heap of difference between the two shades.

Take a look!

Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection Available Online

Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection1

Jill Stuart’s Patisserie Collection is now available from E-bay seller AlphabeautyUK.

I’m not affiliated with this seller, they do not know I’m doing this post. I’ve purchased from them in the past numerous times and enjoy their excellent customer service and fairly reasonable prices so I thought for those wanting to indulge in this collection that this is a very good seller to go with.

They have the new shades of Patisserie Mix Blush as well as the Custard Lip Pots and Glitter Eyes Liquid Eyeshadow.

I’ve checked in at the Soho store and they do not have this collection in stock sadly and according to sale associates at the store they won’t be getting it. However, they do have a good deal of products from the general catalog and they do ship within the US.

Enjoy!

Bobbi Brown BB Cream

As you know Bobbi Brown BB Cream has recently launched at Nordstrom. It’ll be available exclusively at Nordstrom from July but in August it’ll launch at BobbiBrownCosmetics.com as well as at your favorite local counters.

If you missed my review do click here to freshen up.

It’s an exciting release and a BB Cream that’s worth hauling in my opinion. Although a little sheer by the definition of a BB Cream formula it still proves a gorgeous formula that evens out and perfect skin beautifully.

Have you tried it yet?

Planning on it?

Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot 2

Jill Stuart Custard Lip Pot1

The Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection is limited edition collection released for Fall 2012. It’s inspired by a French pastry shop and the packaging, shade names, and scent of the products all bring to mind decadent pastries and desserts.

The Jill Stuart Custard Lip Pots are pretty much spot on for that inspiration as they look like little cups of custard. These were released in five shades and both the colors and product themselves are available for a limited time with this collection.

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.
