NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder for Spring 2015

nyc bb radiance powder

As a fan of NYC New York Color Cosmetics BB Cream it’s only natural I want to try out their new NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder ($4.99). Available in two shade selections this long lasting powder promises to act as a second skin with a velvety matte finish that covers imperfections, evens skin tone, while either setting makeup or acting as foundation itself!

Best part?

The $3.99 price tag.

Look for NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder at drugstores this Spring.


The Marsala Lip Look on the Cheap

This or That Beauty!

I can’t believe how quickly the Sephora Marsala Pantone Color of the Year Collection sold out online. One of the items that sold out quickly was the Sephora + Pantone Universe Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme Lipstick! It was rather a gorgeous shade in my opinion! Not quite marsala mind you but still lovely none the less.

If you didn’t get it for some reason due to cost you can cheap things up with this alternative.


I Love to Hate On…

I Love To Hate On

I love to hate on Miss Dior Cherie Perfume! Some days it feels a little too dark and I hate the patchouli. Other days I’ll wake up, wear it, and think it’s the most amazing perfume in the world!

I just have to be in a mood for it you know?

Do you ever run across perfume or makeup or even skincare that you love yet you hate? You use but sometimes you push aside? Some months it’ll be a fragrance or a product that rocks your world and others you’ll push it to the back of your stash and curl your nose up in digust.

What are some products, fragrance, and skincare that you love to hate on?

Do share them!
