Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quads are a new range of shadow palettes from the brand available in four shades. At a glance these were an exciting launch as they looked like something you’d seeing coming out of Asia.

The palettes are portrayed as a shimmery shade selection in promo images that offer a luminous finish to eyes. I think Maybelline successfully captured “luminous” here but the formula might not be everyone’s bag.

Take a look!

Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser Review

Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser 1

Looks like Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser came out early this Spring but I’m just hearing about it now.

Anyone try it?

Supposedly it transforms dull, tired skin to visibly brighten and refreshes it in as little as four uses.

Hmmm considering I have dull skin I decided to try it.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick 1

I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick

A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.

Take a look!

L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 17

L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner
is a new 24 hour (using 24 hour very tentatively) pot gel eyeliner that’s recently launched in drugstores.

At a glance I wasn’t going to purchase this. I don’t like Maybelline’s Studio Secrets Gel Eyeliner and I’m not a fan of Physicians Formula either, both have disappointing formulas in my opinion.

I do like gel eyeliner though, Bobbi Brown is a favorite of mine as well as MAC’s. I decided that I’d give this a try and if anything I’d just return it.

Let’s take a look!

Avon Lip Tint

Morning!

How’d the weekend treat you? I spent it upstate and what started out rainy ended up gorgeous, ’bout time too as it’s been cold. But today we are back to rain, thunder, lighting…etc…etc…it’s the type of weather that makes you want to stay in bed or procrastinate. And boy have I been procrastinating today. I spent the better half of my morning reading Wincest and proceeding to not get anything done. I dunno why I do it, it always ends up consuming an hour or more of my time.

Yay me!

Now I’m rushing around trying to get endorsements processed for the day.

Mmm by the way Avon’s new Lip Tint caught my eye. I popped a few in my cart.
