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.

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!

Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo Review & Swatches

Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Sunkissed

Avon recently introduced two new limited edition True Color Eyeshadow Duo Palettes with their Fiji Paradise Summer 2013 Collection. I picked up the color Sunkissed with a recent Avon order I did because it had a very pretty corally peach shade in it. The other shade Luscious Orchid is a purple and brown combo which I skipped out on.

I don’t technically like Avon Eyeshadow particularly their quads and duo palettes. Creams, powders…I’ve never really had a successful run with Avon Eyeshadow unfortunately. But sometimes my love of peach leads me into a purchase and in this case I decided hey, maybe the True Color Eyeshadow Duo would be better than the quads I’ve tried in the past.

Let’s fine out if it was.

Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit Review & Swatches

Golden Opportunity Tarte To Go Kit Summer 2013

What? $10 Tarte? Yup, the Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit is a mere $10 bucks! This is a great way to try the new Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner without committing to a full size.

Hey, I know for a fact bronzers can be scary so who wants to dish out $37 only to find out they really don’t love the product they purchased?

Tarte gives you the perfect little deluxe sample packaged up with their cult favorite powder bronzer in Park Ave Princess so you can give it a try for yourself!
