Avon Elements Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream Review

Avon Elements Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream Summer 2013

The new Avon Elements Moisture Boost Night Gel Cream promises me perfectly balanced skin in a gel formula. Hmmm….really? My skin is a little oily at the moment and a little dry so this combination type moisturizer seems a perfect switch up for Summer. First off, I really dig gel moisturizers in the Summer and secondly, I could use the extra moisture but also something to mattify the smaller oily areas around my face.

Perhaps this would be an excellent lightweight nightly gel moisturizer.

Take a peek!

Avon Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream Review & Swatches

Avon Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream

Avon joins Team BB Cream with their new Ideal Flawless BB Beauty Balm Cream ($10) and puts the budget in BB Cream with its sweet little price tag.

We’re plenty used to Korean brands offering the best and most brilliant BB Cream formulas for so much less but when it comes to cheaper BB Creams here in the US, well, the market is a little lacking. So when I run across one for $10 bucks I’m all over that as hey, this might be the one to thrill me!

Take a look!

Secret Scent Expressions Body Spray Review

Secret Scent Expressions Pasion de Tango Body Spray

I admit I find it odd shopping deodorants and coming across body sprays and mists on the same shelf. Isn’t it weird shopping for your deo and proceeding to have them trying to sell you a matching body mist? I mean do you think they are trying to say we smell or something that we need not only a deodorant but also a body mist so we can layer and do away with our own rancid stench.

I feel slightly insulted, a little confused, and partially delighted as a beauty junkie.

I know Dove has done body mists and so has Secret but most recently Secret Scent Expressions Body Spray hits your deodorant shelves for Summer 2013.

Take a look!

Sonia Kashuk Textured Mauve Monochrome Eye Quad Review & Swatches

Sonia Kashuk Monochrome Eye Quad Textured Mauve

The Sonia Kashuk Textured Mauve Monochrome Eye Quad is one of four new eyeshadow palettes that Sonia Kashuk launched at Target for Spring 2013.

I’ve already reviewed one of these palettes in a prior post and today I thought I’d explore my second favorite shade in this collection, Textured Mauve. Honestly, this is more dusky pink than mauve but either way I’m all about it.

Take a look!
