Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Foundation when it released. The actual design of the product is interesting and I like the application method even though I can’t help but shudder over the bacteria that may be lurking in that little puff (Maybelline claims it’s treated with an anti-bacterial agent but I’m not convinced).

My main problem with the foundation was it felt greasy on my face and had a really long dry down time. It remained dewy to the touch hours after application. Some proclaimed it set fabulously with powder but I have drier skin so I normally avoid powder. Others proclaimed it a flawless finish and indeed, it did give a rather great overall finish but it was that greasy, slick, never drying formula that threw me for a curve ball.

Am I bias against drugstore foundation? Possibly but I really do think Age Rewind wasn’t all that fabulous a pick. What did you think if you tried it?

Maybelline gifts us with an early Fall release and extension on the Age Rewind idea with a new concealer. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer might be good…I’m kinda hyped here peeps. Age Rewind Foundation sucked it hard but maybe the concealer will prove brilliance on a stick.

Beauty on a Budget: LA Colors Scented Polish Remover Pads

LA Colors Scented Polish Remover Pads 2011

I don’t care what anyone says…if you scent a beauty product somehow, someway it suddenly becomes more appealing.

Can I hear a hells yes?

Lipgloss, lipstick, blush, skincare….I love scented products! Ok, I know some folks are sensitive to these things but not me. Hand me a watermelon scented moisturizer and I’d be as happy as a clam!

It’s just my thang.

How about scented polish remover?

Wet n Wild ColorIcon The Gilded Age Review, Swatches, Photos

Wet n Wild ColorIcon The Gilded Age 33

I gotta say I really like the six pan Wet n Wild ColorIcon Palettes considerably more than the trios. Dare I whisper that the trios are a tad TOO shimmery…

Gasp!

Blasphemy! Did I just say too much shimmer?

True that. They really are intense but at this price no one is complaining around here. Want cheap Summer bronzed lids? Snatch up the new limited edition Wet n Wild ColorIcon in the The Gilded Age for under $3 bucks and have extra change in your wallet this Summer.

mark Get Defensive Eye Cream with SPF 15 001

The new mark Get Defensive Eye Cream with SPF 15 probably isn’t going to change my eye cream life but it will be my pick for Summer wear thanks to the SPF 15 in the mix.

Is it me or can you list, on like one hand, the amount of good eye creams that contain SPF? It’s such an incredibly low number right?

Well, mark, you’re my new go to for protecting my eyes this Summer!
