Avon Mega Effects Mascara Launches With a Wow!

Avon Mega Effects Mascara is a brand new mascara breakthrough with what Avon calls a Wonderbrush. Yeah, that sure does look wonder! It also looks like I’d likely poke an eye out with it and possibly multitask with it by using it as a hair brush. Damn I love multitasking products don’t you?

New EOS Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

EOS Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

Dying for a new flavor of your favorite EOS Lip Balm? How about the new EOS Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere Lip Balm? Blueberry isn’t a really new flavor if you happen to own the EOS Alice in Wonderland Set. Originally the set included a flavor entitled Blueberry Potion and I have a feeling EOS Blueberry Acai will likely be a similar tasting balm.

Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush Fall 2013

The Milani Coming Up Roses Powder Blush comes in four shade selections and each is a 3D raised rose design.

I’m such a sucker for pretty makeup.

Let’s take a look!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch Review & Swatches

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch

Wake me up before you go go with a little Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch. These creamy, lightweight mousses blend into skin creating radiance and glow in a simple swipe.

I’m scared of highlighters and was actually terrified of these as well since I don’t do shimmer well but they are actually quite nifty.

Take a look!
