L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara Review

LOreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions

L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara is a new Spring 2013 launch to the L’Oreal Telescopic range of mascaras. I’m not as fond a fan of Telescopic Mascara as many seem to be. I’ve never had the raging success I read about in reviews with it so I was a little skeptical going into the Shocking Extensions review.

But this could be the most perfect mascara ever except for one thing….!

Physcians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer is a newly launched concealer for Spring 2013 in the new Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Collection.

Physcians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm Concealer 17

I think it’s great seeing Physicians Formula tackle the BB Cream realms because they’ve always offered VERY pigmented options in terms of foundation and concealer products. I think pigment is definitely an issue that American BB Creams are having a hard time tackling as many of the BB Creams launched here on our shores are very sheer.

Although I’m not fond of the over use of the words “BB Cream” I can’t deny that Korea does have its fair share of “BB” in product titles as well even though they aren’t BB Creams. So this Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer, I guess I can forgive the term being so loosely used.

Physicians Formula calls it the 1st ever blemish balm concealer to aid in concealing dark circles, puffiness, imperfections, blemishes, redness, and more.

Does it?

L’Oreal Magic Decrease Review & Swatches

LOreal Magic Decrease Primer

L’Oreal Magic Decrease is a new eyeshadow primer released for Spring 2013. You should be able to find this little guy tucked right into the new Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad displays.

Now I mentioned earlier when I did another post on this that L’Oreal did indeed have a primer of sorts like this in the past however, I never actually tried that base so I can’t compare Magic Decrease to it sadly.

Here are my thoughts on Magic Decrease.

Olay Fresh Effects S’wipe Out! Refreshing Make Up Removal Cloths Review

Olay Fresh Effects Swipe Out Refreshing Make up Removal Cloths

Olay Fresh Effects S’wipe Out! Refreshing Make-up Removal Cloths are one of six new product releases in the Olay Fresh Effects Skincare Collection that recently launched for Spring 2013.

I was telling you in a prior post that I feel like Olay is definitely trying to reach out to a younger demographic with their new Fresh Effects Collection. The packaging definitely has a “fun” fresher feel, the price point is cheaper, and the products they released with this launch should garner the interest of younger beauty lovers.

I’m all youth at heart so I def saw some appeal in this collection particularly because it isn’t as sterile and medical looking like Olay’s typical skincare packaging ya know?

Now as far as makeup remover wipes, lord knows, I don’t need to try ANOTHER brand of wipes. But I’m a blogger and I make a ton of use out of wipes as I need them to swipe off swatches and the likes. Plus they are great for easy clean up. And my mentality about new beauty is “Yes, yes, must try the precious!” so I was pretty excited to take on the Olay Fresh Effects Make Up Removal Cloths.

Here’s some thoughts!
