Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss

I’ve been having some great success with Black Radiance Lipglosses recently so I snatched up a Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss ($2.99) recently in the hopes my winning streak would keep up!

Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss captures light like a prism and gives lips a 3D look that’s full of shine and shimmer.

Sounds interesting right?

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme Review & Swatches

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme

Sure it’s essentially a tinted moisturizing but NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme is actually a super cheap thrill to pick up for lightweight coverage this Summer season!

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme lacks SPF but they tote it as a multitasking genie that minimizes pores and fine lines, smooths skin, brightens, and has a wear of up to 14 hours.

Whoa now…marketing is a bit much on this little guy but I will say it is Muse Approved for purchase!

Maybelline Jelly Glow Blush Review & Swatches

Maybelline Jello Glow Blushes

Recently I did a post about Maybelline Japan Products I Wish Were Available in the US and I realized that Maybelline Jelly Glow Blush was a product I mentioned in the post and I HAD!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer & Blush Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer & Blush

Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer & Blush are a new Summer 2014 launch that are available now at drugstores for $4.99 each in three different shades.

I don’t use a ton of bronzer but when I do I typically use it along with blush because it makes the finish a bit more wearable to me as bronzer alone makes my skin look a bit lackluster and dull.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer & Blush is a nice idea as it combines both a bronzer and a blush but you’re actually getting more bronzer in the compact than blush.

Take a look!
