L’Oreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad Review & Swatches

Aha! Just as I suspected! The L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Palettes I recently hauled didn’t make the cut. Le sigh! These were introduced in the UK recently and have started popping up in drugstores here in the US. They are available in six shades selections for around $5.79-$6 per palette.

LOreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad

Each palette contains three shades of eyeshadow and one liner shade with a diagram of instructions on the back of the palette for application.

Let’s take a look!

Physcians Formula Cashmere Wear Blush Review & Swatches

Physcians Formula Cashmere Wear Blush Spring 2011

Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra-Smoothing Blush was introduced for Spring 2011 in two shade selections. I reviewed the Rose shade quite sometime ago on the original release but had a difficult time locating the Natural shade for a while (I took photos of both shades and included them in the review for your reference). The shade came into my possession a few months after the release but I didn’t get a chance to review it.

Recently, why diving through my “to be reviewed” pile I came across the Natural and realized I never tried it. I proceeded to get excited about this blush all over again! It’s always fun discovering a product you haven’t used in a while and in a new color to boot.

Take a look!

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation ($9.99) recently launched for Spring 2013 at drugstores in four color selections (I found mine at Harmons).

This is color adapting foundation product that supposedly “changes” once applied to your perfect shade of color thus the lack of colors. Light, Light/Medium, Medium, and Dark are the soup du jour for this foundation.

Take a look!

Essence Stay All Day 16 HR Long Lasting Concealer

I think I might be too old for you Essence Stay All Day 16 HR Long Lasting Concealer ($3.49). Your promise of sixteen hours of wear is very promising and your under four dollars price tag makes a girl happy! But your dry formula might force me to break up with you!

No fun!
