Naturally Smoky with Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle

Revlon Spring Essentials

As the snow starts to melt and Spring grows nearer I find myself getting more and more excited to shed my heavy makeup and embrace something more lightweight and natural.

Spring is the season of renewal and rebirth and an ideal time to start getting you’re skin back in shape again after a rather long hibernation period. If you live in a cold environment chances are you’re exposed to frigid temperatures one minute and warm, dry heat the next as you race from outside to inside do no favors for your skin.

Mine tends to get patchy and dry around my cheeks and feels two sizes too small. Since we’re just seeing the earlier start of Spring here I’m immediately thinking of ways to spruce up my Spring makeup wardrobe and thinking of the best ways to get a natural look while shedding my dry Winter skin.

Here a few tips to get your skin in order for the Spring season and a few suggestions for a naturally smoky makeup look to compliment your complexion using the new Revlon Photo Ready Primer + Shadow Palette in Metropolitan.

Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask Review

Freeman Charcoal Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

With Spring here and Winter kinda behind us I’ve been using Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask to whisk away dry, flaky skin.

Dude, have I ever lead you wrong? You seriously need to try this stuff. As a hardcore fan of Lush Dark Angels and Coalface and of course, MAC Volcanic Ash I was all about it as soon as I heard “Charcoal”. Seriously, my little beauty radar begins to bleep whenever I hear charcoal. It’s been programed to do so thanks to Lush who turned me onto the joys of charcoal in my skincare!

Might sound weird but it is absolutely thee awesome.

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

As you know Revlon has a few new Colorburst Lip Butters floating around and Pink Lemonade happens to be one. Now I discussed a few times already that these new shades aren’t as consistent a formula as the original. Pink Lemonade happens to be the worst offender of the four shades in terms of pigmentation and quality.

The color itself is a hard one to pull off as it’s a pale mod pinky peach. The color might be best for a super fair skin tone with less than pigmented lips however, anyone in between might feel the shade makes them look deathly…or at least it made me look zombied.

Nuance by Salma Hayek Renewed Radiance Brightening BB Cream Review & Swatches

Nuance by Salma Hayek Renewed Radiance Brightening BB Cream

I was quite excited by the new Nuance by Salma Hayek Renewed Radiance Brightening BB Cream ($16.79) that my local CVS had. But ouch on the drugstore pricing! Near $20 for a drugstore BB Cream definitely hurts my feelings but it could be brilliant and if I didn’t buy it I might be missing out on something incredible.

See my logic?

Available in Light/Medium and Medium/Deep selections this sports an SPF 30 and supposedly contains Dermaxyl which is a peptide complex that works to help smooth the appearance of wrinkles.

Take a look!
