Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse Review & Swatches

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse 7

The Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Collection is kinda old news in Japan. Its never been released in the US but it did make it’s way across much of Asia upon release.

It happens to be one of those products that throws around “BB” in the title to garner attention but really that’s not a reference to the formula being a BB Cream. I notice the words BB Cream and BB seem to float around a lot when it comes to foundation and base products.

Japan typically releases new products prior to us with different names. For example, our new Bouncy Dream Blushes are called Jello Glow in Japan. I’m mentioning this because I was curious if we might see this BB Mousse pop up here in the US at some point. We sorta have in the form of Maybelline’s new foaming foundation but…packaging is different as well as formula slightly.

I find Maybelline products exceed quality in terms of pigmentation and formula in Japan versus much of the catalog products we have here in the US market so I expected Pure BB Mineral BB Mousse to be something I rejoiced in but sadly it didn’t quite happen that way.

KATE Covering Concealer for Under Eyes Review & Swatches

KATE Covering Concealer for Under Eyes 1

I reviewed Kate’s new stick concealer for you last week if you recall. This week, I’ve been getting a whole hell of a lot more sleep in preparation for seeing Van Halen this weekend, of course, this depends on whether or not they actually stay together before the weekend hits, I’m expecting to open a newspaper and read somewhere that Roth killed another band member or vice versa, oh the drama, the drama, the drama, the drama whenever they go on tour…

Anyway, since I’m working on 16 hours of sleep in two days, go freaking me, that’s more sleep than I get in a five day period, I can go ahead and go a little lighter with the concealer, that’s where KATE Covering Concealer for Under Eyes comes into place.
