Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer 3

I’ve never tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so I thought I’d give it a test prior to trying the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream as it would be easier to compare the two formulas.

Companies are a little guilty of switching around the names of their Tinted Moisturizers and simply adding “BB Cream” to new packaging so I wasn’t sure if Aveeno was doing the same thing. Both Covergirl and Olay have done this recently…!

After I review Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer I’ll follow up with my review of the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream to compare the two formulas.

Here’s my thoughts on the tinted moisturizer formula and I’ll follow up shortly with my thoughts and comparisons to the BB Cream formula!

Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette Neutrals Swatches 2

It’s understandable that the Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette in Neutrals is damn nearly impossible to find. Let’s face it Urban Decay has created such a stir with their Naked Palette that everyone just wants to gather up any and all nude palettes that launch.

Oh wait, maybe that’s only me?

Naaa! You’re all as crazy and as strange as me so you’re probably stock piling nude, natural, naked palettes like no brand will reproduce one in the next twenty years or more.

Now for the budget girls you might love all over Hard Candy’s Top Ten Eye Shadow Palette in Neutrals because it contains ten nude shades of shadow for a mere six bucks.

Do likey the price but how’s the formula?

Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm Spring 2013

Heads up beauty budget lovers! The new Essence Kiss Care Love Lip Balm has launched for Spring 2013 in four delicious shades.

I admit I’m a lip balm junkie. They make a guest starring appearance in my desk drawer, on top of my desk, in my makeup bag, in the bottom of my tote, on my office desk, on my night stand, on my vanity…yeah, you get the point.

I just find slicking on balm is a far easier task when you’re busy versus reapplying your lipstick and gloss.

At $1.99 each Essence soothes my beauty budget sweet tooth with their little Kiss Care Love Balms!

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow is a nice little budget pick if you’re lemming or liking Covergirl Intense Shadowblast. You wouldn’t think you’d need an even more friendly budget option when it comes to Covergirl but their version can run from $9.99-$11.99 at drugstores and E.L.F.’s version is a mere two bucks a pop!

Did I like them?
