NYX Color Correcting Powder Review & Swatches

NYX Color Correcting Powder

NYX Color Correcting Powder ($10 0.21 oz) is a new permanent color correcting powder available in green, banana, and lavender shade selections.

You likely already know what a huge fan I am of The Skin Food Dark Circle Powder and unfortunately, I’m starting to run low on it and Skin Food discontinued the powder might to my horror. I’m always shopping alternatives to replace the powder and I’ve found a few I really like such as Ben Nye Banana Powder but I’m always on the look out for the next best thing.

When NYX Color Correcting Powder launched a few weeks ago I decided to order two of the three shades and see how they performed to set my concealer and maybe I’d get lucky and love the formula as much as I do Skin Food’s Dark Circle Powder!

Let’s take a look!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer

Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer is being added to the permanent line of Rimmel Cosmetics at drugstores this Spring. Lasting Finish Primer has already been released in the UK but this is the first time we’re seeing it here in the US so if you happen to be in the UK this might be old news to you!

I’m seeing a lot of creamy, hydrating primers this Spring which is great because my drier skin appreciates the extra moisture. I don’t really love silicone-based primers like Smashbox Photo Finish so these are perfect for me! According to Rimmel it increases the wear of foundation for up to eight hours after use!

Let’s take a look at Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer!

Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine Review & Swatches

Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine

Milani Fierce Foil Eyeshine Eyeshadow Palettes are available in four permanent shade selections for Spring 2015. These aren’t quite a cream eyeshadow but more of an eye gloss or as Milani calls them, an eyeshine…!

I know one thing, Fierce Foil Eyeshine comes just in time to take on the current metallic Spring trend we’re seeing! Seems metallic eyes are huge this season and these palettes bring the look on the cheap!

But they have a few quirks that might prove irritating for many.

New Wet n Wild Fergie Blush for Spring 2015

Wet n Wild Around the Clock Blush

Wet n Wild Around the Clock Blush is a new selection of blushes that launching for Spring 2015 within the Fergie Centerstage Collection. I’ve always been a fan of Wet n Wild Blush so I was quite excited to see they added three shades to the Centerstage Collection.

Of course, the original Icon Blusher was only around $3 bucks or so. Hell I remember paying a $1.50 for mine when Walgreens had a sale. The new Around the Clock Blush are $4.99 each but honestly, if they rival the Icon Blusher formula in terms of pigment and formula I have no problem paying a little more for them!

Take a look!
