Olay Total Effect Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush Review & Swatches

Olay Total Effect Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush

Recently, Total Effect Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush has relaunched with a new CC Eye Color Correcting packaging. It’s actually the same formula of the original Total Effect Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush however, now it is marketed as a skin perfector and correction to reduce darkness under eyes.

Mmmmm it’s kinda like when Covergirl Tinted Moisturizer suddenly became Covergirl BB Cream. It’s about the trend my dears and in this case Olay seen an opening to re-market a product that already works for them as a color correcting product of sorts.

Take a look!

Maybelline Beige-ing Beauty Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Beigeing Beauty Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

Maybelline Beige-ing Beauty Color Tattoo Eyeshadow is yet another new cream eyeshadow that launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection for Spring 2014.

This one is a very interesting shade because it actually lacks a ton of color and is more about shimmer so if you hate yourself some shimmer best step away from this review.

Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Nude Compliment, and Sleek & Spice Swatch Comparisons

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

I’m so scared someone is going to throw a rotten tomato at me if I don’t do a swatch comparison of Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Sleek & Spice, and Nude Compliment. I’m probably doing you a complete disservice but unfortunately I rarely have time to dig through my stash and just list every single dupe there is for another shade I review. If I blogged full time I’d def try to commit to doing something like that but I don’t and I find it a real chore to search through my stash and try and find dupes of everything I post about.

*head desk*

It’s exhausting.

What’s equally exhausting is people asking me is that a dupe for this is this a dupe for that. Oh lawd. It seems like everything has to be a dupe for everything else. Most recently I get a lot of questions about the newest Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Tattoo Eyeshadow shades so I decided I’d end all the discussion about the most popular shades being dupes for a shade already in the permanent collection, Bad to the Bronze, as I feel like it isn’t a dupe of the two newest shades and I’m unsure really why people might feel they are similar. I’m probably missing something here but I suck at shade comparisons anyway so don’t take my word for it but here are some swatches so you can decide for yourself.

Plus if I’m honest at $5.99 each I’m almost positive the world won’t end if maybe sorta kinda Bad to the Bronze resembles something you already own! It’s not a $30 eyeshadow so we should be ok! :)
