L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush is a contouring and illuminating blush created in six shades for Spring 2013.
These have a lightweight, mousse-like texture much like Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush. The lighter texture is supposed to give skin a more youthful, healthy “lifted” look with a texture that doesn’t settle into fine lines. There’s irony in the “doesn’t settle into fine lines” because the formula made me look like I have monstrously huge pores when in fact my pores are so tiny you’d need a magifying mirror to actually see them so I can just imagine what they’d do on a finely lined face.

I’m excited to try out the new Olay Professional Pro-X Even Skin Tone Collection launching soon. I haven’t had the best luck in the world with affordable dark spot correctors and whitening treatments but I’m quite curious about this collection and will be checking it out when it launches.

Looks like Drew Barrymore’s Flower Cosmetic Collection has launched at Walmart. It’s online right now but much of it is out of stock however, a few reader’s mentioned they already saw it in store.
I haven’t been to my evil empire yet so haven’t checked it out but from what I am seeing online sounds like I have to get there…they even have a BB Cream!
Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation is possibly one of the nicest budget foundations I’ve come across in a long time. At $3.59 with a $1 off coupon I paid a mere $2.59 at Harmons for it.
Wha?!?! Unheard of! Decent foundation for under three bucks? How is that possible?
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment is a newly formulated Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer which contains vitamin C that helps fight dark spots over time as it covers them. Maybelline promises to visibly decrease dark spots in as little as four weeks so not only does it concealer but it treats aging spots, dark spots, acne scarring, and sunspots.
Concentrated vitamin C is a tricky little ingredient and isn’t always stable or effective at brightening/whitening. I’d probably have to try this for a year or more to see the best results so I’ll only be discussing the texture, coverage, etc…of this as a concealer but not as a treatment.
I like the idea it could be treating my problem areas though and if it works all the better. I’ll update this post should I see any results in the future on dark spots.
