Tony Moly Fruit Princess Gloss So Kawaii!

Tony Moly Fruit Princess Gloss 2011

I love me some cute beauty. Who knows I could have been a Japanese teen girl in my other life that might be why I’m all about the kawaii!

There are some folks that take makeup seriously and like classy, elegant pieces and I definitely appreciate that style of makeup too but my heart always yearns for the sweetest, cutest packaging.

That’s why I’m excited that Sasa has the Tony Moly Fruit Princess Glosses available. Awwww Kawaii!

Bourjois Paris Eye Pearls Quintet Eyeshadow Palettes 3

Sigh.

How I miss you Bourjois Paris!

Bourjois Paris Eye Pearls Quintet Eyeshadow Palettes are a brand new variation of the Bourjois Paris Smoky Eye Palettes I reviewed for you a year or two ago. I’m quite excited about this release but so sad that it proves very difficult to find anything new by Bourjois here in the states.

Le sigh!

Yearnings ahead.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All in One BB Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All in One BB Cream 2

I suspect that Garnier will start releasing their BB Cream here in the US soon. If we don’t see it for Spring 2012 we will most definitely see it for Summer 2012.

The BB Cream trend we saw around Fall will probably pick up speed again for Spring and Summer and hopefully we’ll see some of the first BB Creams in US Drugstores at some point during those seasons. The first drugstore BB Cream to pop up in the UK and Ireland was Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All in One BB Cream so I predict it’ll be our first as well.

If you aren’t familiar with BB Creams or not sure what I am talking about I suggest you read my What is a BB Cream prior to reviewing this review.

Let’s take a look at Garnier’s BB Cream.

This one multitasks as a primer, perfector, oil controller, and sunscreen.

It’s formulated with emollients and optical pearl pigments to give your skin a glowing, ethereal look.

I haven’t tried this one yet as I’ve been disappointed with the BB Cream offerings in the US but if you’ve been curious to try it it’s available now at Sephora.
