Too Faced Air Buffed BB Cream for Spring 2013

If the new Too Faced Air Buffed BB Cream is anything at all like my beloved Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation you will have one very happy Muse on your hands.

Mousse-like BB Creams have become very common place in Asia with brands like Tony Moly, Shills, and more releasing their own version. These have been around for a few years now but since the BB Cream is just peaking here in the US we haven’t yet seen many variations on the formula.

Too Faced obviously redeems that with their new Air Buffed BB Cream.


Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream for Spring 2013

If anyone is going to get BB Cream right it would have to be Shiseido right? Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream is a newly launched BB for Spring 2013 available in two shades.

And yes, it’s on my wish list of things I must try even though my BB Cream pile is a little out of control at the moment.


Etude House Princess Etionette Crystal Powder Review & Swatches

Etude House released Princess Etionette Crystal Powder for Holiday 2012 along with two very lovely Blushers. This week I decided I’d review this very pretty powder!

I’m sure I’m going to create some lemmings with this.

Take a look!


Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

As you know Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm launched late last week. Urban Decay’s first ever BB Cream leaves a little to be desired in the pigmentation department and acts more as a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. This alone had me worried whether I’d rant or rave it, love it or hate it.

However, after trying it out for the past several days I can honestly say it took me by surprise.


Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer for Spring 2013

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer has launched in two shade selections at drugstores for Spring 2013. As you know from my early post Olay Fresh Effects is a newly launched Skincare Collection that features a few products that should appeal outside Olay’s typical mature age demographic and may gather the eye of teens and twenty sometimes with this new line.

The addition of this new BB Cream alone should garner interest from a wide variety of women (and men) who are just now learning about BB Creams. I mentioned in a few posts already the BB Cream will get an even bigger push for Spring and here we are already discussing a new one from Olay.

It’s unfortunate they choose to name it BB Cream and Tinted Moisturizer….that should account for how sheer it probably will be.
