Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB Launches in Japan

Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB

I’m happy to report Kao has launched their next generation Aqua Rich Watery product in the form of a BB Cream. Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB contains the same great formula as the original Aqua Rich Watery SPF 50 which has a mousse-like texture and a moisturizing finish but also now acts as BB Cream for giving skin a brighter appearance on application.

I love the idea of it still containing a generous SPF 50 as well as being tinted to even out skin tone and to act as a tinted moisturizer of sorts. Even if it doesn’t provide the same great benefits as a regular BB Cream I’m still interested in trying it out as I use and love the original sunscreen only version.

This retails for $7-$10 in Japan so expect to pay $14.99 and upwards when it reaches online shops.

I’ll be reviewing it shortly.

If you tried it feel free to share your thoughts!

Keep your eyes on AlphabeautyUK (not affiliated) on E-bay as I’m sure she’ll be getting it shortly!

Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm is available in five new, limited edition shades for Spring. I recently picked up the Coral Crush Baby Lips Balm as I can’t resist anything in coral, orange, or peach (you know my addiction well don’t you?).

I’m not a terribly big fan of Baby Lips but they seem to evolved a little since I last tried them out.

Here are a few thoughts on Coral Crush.

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray Review

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.

I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!

But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.

Does NYX’s version work?

Maybelline Color Goes Electric High Shine Lipgloss Collection

Maybelline Color Goes Electric High Shine Lipgloss Collection

Maybelline has two displays containing new products in their Color Goes Electric Collection. One of those displays contains new High Shine Lipgloss shades much to my delight.

I’m a huge fan of Maybelline High Shine Lipgloss since their release late last year and must say they are possibly one of the nicest drugstore glosses around.

Take a look!
