Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow

Ahh you might remember the Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow from earlier this Spring which launched in Japan. These new single eyeshadows from Japanese brand Lavshuca are a step outside the normal palettes that Lavshuca traditionally releases.

The really unique thing is the fact they come in both matte and shimmer shades. Matte drugstore eyeshadow isn’t terribly common from brands like Lavshuca. I’m not a fan of matte finish myself but the idea of Lavshuca doing matte shades was intriguing.

In the end, I ended up with the sparkly shades hehe…! But I definitely think it’s a fresh step in a new direction for Japanese brands to embrace more matte shades of eyeshadow.

Let’s take a look!

Avon Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream Review & Swatches

Avon Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream

Avon joins Team BB Cream with their new Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream ($10) and puts the budget in BB Cream with its sweet little price tag.

We’re plenty used to Korean brands offering the best and most brilliant BB Cream formulas for so much less but when it comes to cheaper BB Creams here in the US, well, the market is a little lacking. So when I run across one for $10 bucks I’m all over that as hey, this might be the one to thrill me!

CC Creams are heating up in the US at the moment and the new Laura Geller CC Cream Compact is the latest one to capture my attention. Laura did a BB Cream a few months ago that I’ve been meaning to test out but haven’t had a chance to as of yet and already she’s on to a CC Cream.

This beauty junkie can’t keep up!

Unlike traditional liquid CC Creams though Laura’s new CC Cream is a creamy compact.
