Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Review & Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks 004

I feel like I don’t have nearly enough golden peach shades in my makeup life like Tarte’s Glisten.

Isn’t that an amazing shade of glowing blush?

With that note in mind I asked a friend of mine who lives in Tokyo to purchase me Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks, a new glowing blush from Lunasol that promises a radiant finish.

The interesting packaging, allure of the color and promise of radiance were all key selling points plus the Lunasol name on the box makes this one a tempting little purchase.

Take a look!

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Shade 3 Swatches

Clinique Age Dense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Shade 3 Swatches 3

BB Cream has finally stepped into the spotlight here in the US. In Korea, where BB Cream first became popular, girls and women use this product after their skincare in place of sunscreen and foundation to perfect, protect, and create flawless skin.

Now that BB Cream has reached the US, we’ve adapted our own uses for the BB Cream that’s used in a variety of ways from priming, protecting, to using in place of foundation and controlling oil. BB Cream is a hybrid product that acts as skincare, makeup, and sun protection all in one.

Although BB Cream formulas and the some of ideas of the product has changed slightly to make it more marketable here in the US for the most part the concept remains the same, flawless skin achieved using a single product for easily achieving flawless skin.

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream is probably my favorite so far from the releases here in the US. What originally started out as a light and medium shade selection has now been extended to include another shade selection.

My Beauty Diary Blooming Garden Lip Essence Review & Swatches

at counter

Cult favorite, Taiwanese sheet mask extraordinaire My Beauty Diary likes to venture outside of the realms of mere sheet masks every once in a while. Last Spring, they introduced a small little stash of skincare products and this Spring they venture into beauty.

I mean I imagine Batman gets tired of fighting crime every once and a while and maybe thought about heading up his local MAC counter so why can’t My Beauty Diary switch things up and take a breather from sheet masks and maybe, I dunno, dabble around with lip balm?
