Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask Review

Freeman Charcoal Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

With Spring here and Winter kinda behind us I’ve been using Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask to whisk away dry, flaky skin.

Dude, have I ever lead you wrong? You seriously need to try this stuff. As a hardcore fan of Lush Dark Angels and Coalface and of course, MAC Volcanic Ash I was all about it as soon as I heard “Charcoal”. Seriously, my little beauty radar begins to bleep whenever I hear charcoal. It’s been programed to do so thanks to Lush who turned me onto the joys of charcoal in my skincare!

Might sound weird but it is absolutely thee awesome.

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

As you know Revlon has a few new Colorburst Lip Butters floating around and Pink Lemonade happens to be one. Now I discussed a few times already that these new shades aren’t as consistent a formula as the original. Pink Lemonade happens to be the worst offender of the four shades in terms of pigmentation and quality.

The color itself is a hard one to pull off as it’s a pale mod pinky peach. The color might be best for a super fair skin tone with less than pigmented lips however, anyone in between might feel the shade makes them look deathly…or at least it made me look zombied.

Revlon Juicy Papaya Colorburst Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Revlon Juicy Papaya Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya is one of four new shades that Revlon released with their new Summer 2013 Collection entitled Pacific Coast.

I’m not sure why but a few reviews I read likened to Juicy Papaya to Peach Parfait sans shimmer and I think that’s pretty misleading. Juicy Papaya is more of a nude muted coral where as Peach Parfait is a golden coral.

Take a look!
