Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35

Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35 1

Bobbi Brown BB Cream hit the Asian market in March on the heels of the release of her new Pretty Natural Tinted Moisturizers here in the US.

I am very curious to compare the ingredients on Bobbi’s new BB Cream versus her new Pretty Natural Tinted Moisturizers to see what sort of differences we will find.

MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm 2

So you wanna know the deets on the new MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm SPF 35 eh? I’ve had it for several months now heck maybe it’s even been a year….I believe mine came from Duty Free in either Japan or Singapore, not sure which. This was around the original date when it was available within Asia only.

The tube I’m reviewing for you is from Asia but I do want to indulge in the one that has released on our shores as well just to see if the formulas are the same. I suspect they are but out of curiosity I will be buying the other version and comparing the two for any differences.

If you’re unfamiliar with BB Creams or have questions about them I do suggesting familiarizing yourself with them by clicking here.

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ Review, Swatches, Photos

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm 10

Hmmm word on the street is that people are pretty happy with the new Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ that debuted at Sephora recently.

After trying the Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm BB Cream and being disappointed I was excited to try this version since many of you seemed quite pleased with it.

With BB Creams finally taking the Western market by storm I was quite hyped about testing out US formulations of a BB Cream plus add to the fact that we’d have options available that were easy to purchase and needless to say you can add to my excitement. Most folks that have never tried an Asian BB Cream will probably rave the new collection of Dr. Jart BB’s available at Sephora. It’s a given that having never tried something superior that you’ll instantly like these rather brilliantly formulated products however being a connoisseur of BB Creams I can honestly say so far these options prove very, very low calorie compared to Korean BB Creams.

Let’s take a peek!

Boscia BB Cream SPF 27 PA++

Boscia BB Cream SPF 27 PA++2

Japanese brand, Boscia, brought the second BB Cream release to the US market late last week. With the introduction of BB Creams incoming to the Western Market you’re bound to see quite a few from your favorite brands popping up in the next few months.

Like many of you I’ve expressed both joy and concern about BB releases in the US. I think we all love the idea of easily getting BB Creams at our fav stores and counters however we also worry that the formulas will change from the traditional Asian BB Creams we all know and love.

So far, I was terribly disappointed in Dr. Jart’s attempt…!

Let’s take a pick at the new Boscia BB Cream and see what it offers.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting Review, Swatches, Photos

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting 4

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting is a lovely little treat for lips and tastes like an Irish Cream Pavlova. Dare I say I never tried an Irish Cream Pavlova but I’ve tried French fruit ones and they are truly decadent…the taste of this Lip Frosting is as well! Nom!

In other news a woman in Oregon had dental implant surgery and woke up from the experience with an Irish accent.

Dude……..! For serious? Gimme your dentist’s name I wanna see if he can give me a proper Brit accent.
