Covergirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation

Some of Covergirl’s newest Summer offerings feel very retro. Covergirl Cleaned Whipped Creme Foundation is a perfect example of this as remember the old TRUblend Whipped Foundation I loved so much? Seems the same concept right?

Take a look!

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils for Summer 2013

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils are a new range of chubby colored pencils that are launching in drugstores for Summer 2013. These quite remind me of Covergirl Eye Slicks which I’m unsure are even available anymore (Sorry, I don’t pay too much attention to CG’s offerings so I could be completely old school with the Eye Slicks reference).

These are available in ten shades and were $5.49 at Harmons. They had some tricked out colors which really sparked my interest like a gorgeous olive green and a flaming red!

Take a peek!

Nuance Salma Hayek Dual Phase Makeup Remover Review

Nuance Salma Hayek Dual Phase Makeup Remover

Ha I didn’t know Nuance by Salma Hayek had a Cucumber & Rosewater Dual Phae Makeup Remover ($8.49). I ran out of Maybelline Clean Express and had some of those Beauty Bonus Bucks from CVS that I always let expire so I was determined to use them (I let one for $50 expire a few months ago and another for $10 and….and….)!

So I headed to CVS last night after having a rather delightful Italian dinner with some friends. I must have circled the aisles twenty times because nothing jumped out at me and I was almost ready to pack it and forget about the stupid bonus bucks when I noticed this makeup remover.

So that’s my story about discovering this stuff. And it was long and boring but you know I love to babble don’t you?

L’Oreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

LOreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Spring 2013

Cherie Merie is one of four new limited edition L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow shades launched with the Miss Candy Collection. This isn’t a new shade for some of you as you might have already gotten your hands on it in Canada under the name Pepsi Coral or in the UK as Magnetic Coral.

But I am happy to report that it is quite different from Magnetic Coral if you own that shade already. I can’t speak for Pepsi Coral though as I do not have it.

I personally adore corals as you know and this shade is no exception to the rule plus the formula is absolute perfection compared to other Infallible shades.

Take a peek!

Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads Review

Almay Longwear Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Four score and seven years ago the Muse was a younger girl and tried out Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. This devil product nearly put me off Eye Makeup Remover for all time. It was greasy, oily, and it blinded me with science…not really science but it was cool to throw that in a sentence.

No seriously, they were so OILY that they ended up giving me trippy eye vision for hours after. I must have been 18ish or so when I first tried them. I had a brief stint working at CVS when I was around 16 or so so it could have been even as far back as that when I originally tried them.

Almay recently launched four new pad eye makeup removers and two new liquid eye makeup removers. I saw the display, quickly shook my head, and walked away from it. Those pads are evil I told myself, you’re still recovering from the last time you used them, remember what an emotional wreck you were after using them that first time? Needless to say curiosity killed the cat but this cat was curious none the less….so I decided to repurchase the Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I mean there was Kate Hudson right on display, smiling at me reassuringly. This must mean they somehow reformulated these pads! No oil, no trippy cloudy vision that makes me want to play I am the Walrus as I stumble from my bathroom to my bedroom….goo goo g’joob indeed.

How are they?
