L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Review & Swatches

LOreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder1


L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder
is the type of product that renews and refreshes your love of beauty. I mean innovative products like “Liquid Powder” get me excited. The Magic Nude Liquid Powder promises to magically transform from liquid to powder on contact with skin.

Wow, run around in circles, get excited! That sounds damn special. Being bombarded with beauty daily as a blogger sometimes I get a little tired, burnt out etc..so products like this really get me excited as it is something quite different. Granted, Armani Maestro Foundation (same company) has already cornered the market on “liquid, true to skin” foundations but still I think Magic Nude Liquid Powder is an interesting launch for a drugstore product.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Icy Mint

The Maybelline Icy Mint Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow was a shade I was hopeful about but like all the Maybelline Color Tattoo Summer 2013 Eyeshadows it didn’t have a good run. Not sure what happened with the formula here but some folks profess they LOVE the Summer shades and others, like me, rant them as being awful.

Take a peek at Icy Mint, you decide.

Rimmel Coral Garden Moisture Renew Lipstick (Fall 2013) Review & Swatches

Rimmel Coral Garden Moisture Renew Lipstick Fall 2013

Rimmel reintroduces us to Moisture Renew Lipstick this Fall with a new selection of shades in the Dazzling Duchess special display popping up now at drugstores.

It took me a hot second to firgure out if I had or hadn’t tried Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick before so I headed home, sorted through my stash, and realized Rimmel is merely re-pimping these out in new shades of Berries, Pinks, and Nudes.

I only picked up a single shade from this new launch, Coral Garden, and I think I’m set as far as these lippies go.

Let’s take a look!

L’Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream Review & Swatches

LOreal Visible Lift CC Cream1

As I’m busy exploring CC Creams this Summer I was excited by L’Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream as it was easy enough to get in drugstores here in the US. It recently launched and I came across it for $10.49 at Harmons and I instantly snatched up both shades available.

I suspect it’ll be considerably higher priced at CVS, Walgreens, etc…so it sure is helpful that I’m here to tell you how BADLY the formula turned out.

Ugh! Do not buy!

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer aka Apocalips Lip Lacquer as they are referred to in the UK are now available in US drugstores. Show Off Lip Lacquer is available in a range of fourteen shades and is a liquid lipstick slash gloss with full color coverage.

These are an exciting release as it seems like we’ve been literally awaiting their arrival on US shores for ages now. We also happened to get a bigger range of shades as the UK release only has eight colors available.

These are in special displays at the moment but they will become part of the Rimmel general catalog display later this Fall.

Let’s take a look!
