L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 2

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.

Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.

Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Endless Pearl Review & Swatches

LOreal Infallible Eyeshadow Endless Pearl 2

Here’s an interesting little find! I recently located a L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in the shade Endless Pearl on a special display at Walmart which contained new colors.

I actually thought this was one of the new shades as don’t recall ever seeing it when the product launched at my local drugstore.

What’s so special about Endless Pearl?

It’s matte! Yes! Matte! It’s possibly the only matte shade I’ve seen in the Infallible Eyeshadow Collection. Not that I’m a fond fan of matte shades but Endless Pearl is actually quite a nice one particularly for aging eyes to give them a more wakey wakey appearance.

Take a look!

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Mega Plush Mascara Review

Maybelline Volum’ Express has extended their line to include the new Mega Plush formula for Summer 2012. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush Mascara has a flexible brush and a gel-mousse formula that supposedly adds super volume to lashes.

I liked the idea of a flexible brush as you get that added wriggle action in for plucking lashes up and out but after using it I’m thinking I’d have preferred to do without as I feel like I loss a little control over application.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me 001

Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.

I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.

I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.

Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.
