Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm Review & Swatches

Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm

Shut the front door, I actually like Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm!

How can this be possible. Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm is actually a lipstick style concealer. I mean come on, this brings you way back to your grandmother’s makeup right? I’ve always, always belittled the old lipstick concealer because fact people, it’s concealer in a lipstick tube…plus chalk it up as being hecka dry and you got yourself a recipe for disaster.

I think the last time I used concealer like this I was a freshman in high school. That was probably the day I figured out what dry concealer was all about.

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Review & Swatches

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm Spring 2013

Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm have recently launched as part of Covergirl’s Spring 2013 Collection. These are a chubby tinted balm pencil that gives lips a kiss of color and is available in sixteen shades.

The glossy balm pencil has really mad a huge dent in the lip market. There are a good deal of brands releasing these types of pencils lately every since Clinique broke the market with their own chubby pencils. Soon after drugstores started catching up and releasing their own version. Spring seems to be getting a mighty push for this type of pencil as I see a good deal of brands launching them including Neutrogena.

Cover Girl has the chance to rule the market though since there gloss balm pencil has a good deal of variety backing it. Revlon also has a nice shade selection to take advantage of. I think variety of shades can definitely be a tip off in the right direction.

How’s the formula though?

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?
