Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer Review & Swatches

Almay Intense I Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer

Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer is a newly launched cream eyeshadow released in four shades for Spring 2013. These cream shadows act as an all over color eyeshadow or as a prep and prime shade for powder.

The four shades were created to flatter a range of eye colors such as blue, hazel, and brown. Almay carefully selected shades they felt would flatter different color eyes and marketed each liquid shadow towards that eye type.

As you know, I’m all about wearing whatever I want on my eyes. I’m not really convinced any one shade of shadow is meant for my brown eyes. I like soft browns and I like bold aquas and I love pink and gold…really any color shade of eyeshadow is cool by me. The only reason I’d avoid certain shades would be because some clash with my dark circles. Aside from that I never had any issues wearing any shade I wanted to. So I’m not completely sold on all the marketing I see lately for shades that would be “suitable” for my eye color.

So what did I do? I was a rebel and hauled three of the four shades Almay introduced in the new Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Even the one for green eyes…nanner nanner!

Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review & Swatches

Revlon Photoready BB Cream1

I picked up Revlon Photoready BB Cream on Saturday and blogged it from my car. Revlon BB Cream? Yeah, I was excited.

I actually found it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond marked at a very reasonable $8.29. I was surprised as although BBB is part of Harmons, typically their prices are higher for some odd reason or another. $8.29 seems reasonable enough. I suspect once it hits the standard round of drugstores the price will range from $9.99-$11.99.

Having been very disappointed with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream as well as other US BB Creams I haven’t pinned too many hopes on Revlon Photoready BB Cream.

What did I think?

Here’s a few thoughts!

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup for Spring 2013

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation

I told you a little about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup yesterday. This is a new foundation that Almay has released in four shade selection that has a self adjusting formula which becomes your “perfect” shade after application.

“Mousse” makeup had me thinking whipped, creamy, and more along the lines of Revlon’s Colorstay Whipped Foundation released several months ago but actually this formula seems a little different.
