Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Illuminating Bronzing Veil Review & Swatches

Visions of Etude House might have came to mind when my eyes set on the new Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Illuminating Bronzing Veil.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow Mood Illuminating Bronzing Veil 8

Too bad this isn’t a blush as I’d really go full out ballistic…tongue hanging out of my mouth, drool, buggy eyed…ya know that kinda reaction to wicked sweet makeup!

Some of that joy was held back though as I’m so not a bronzing girl but still these cute little heart shaped bronzing beads are too adorable to pass up.

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow

E.L.F. Essential Primer Eyeshadow is a nice little budget pick if you’re lemming or liking Covergirl Intense Shadowblast. You wouldn’t think you’d need an even more friendly budget option when it comes to Covergirl but their version can run from $9.99-$11.99 at drugstores and E.L.F.’s version is a mere two bucks a pop!

Did I like them?

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel Review

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel is an interesting topic of conversation in the skincare world. This is a highly affordable glycolic peeling solution that will set you back a mere $16.99 (or less depending where you purchase it).

I, unfortunately, had very little success with the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Correction Moisturizer but I still wanted to try this in conjunction with the moisturizer to see how it worked out for me.

I have duller skin with minor darkness on the lower hand side of my face that could use brightening up. I purchased it for this reason as well as to refine my skin.

Take a look!

Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Review & Swatches

Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Spring 2013

The new Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner Collection is a brand new range of liquid liners launching for Spring 2013. Milani is all kinds of legendary for creating some of thee most fabulous eyeliner pencils around.

I happen to be anti-liquid liner because I can’t apply it worth a damn. My hand gets all kinds of shaky when I’m anywhere near it, I feel too MADE up with it in place, and I definitely haven’t mastered the “flick” to get down the perfect cat eye look!

But I decided to give Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liner a chance anyway!

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

I recently located Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner at my local Harmons. These launched earlier last year in the UK however, they are newly launched for Spring 2013 here in the US. The displays were originally limited to three shades however, the pencil has since launched as part of the general catalog and includes ten total shades (including a nude shade for brightening eyes!).

At under $5 per liner they are an ideal pick up for those on a budget. At Ulta they are currently $4.49 each and available as a BOGO offer so you can get the second pencil at 50% Off! Score!

Here are some thoughts!
