Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Expert Wear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quads are a new range of shadow palettes from the brand available in four shades. At a glance these were an exciting launch as they looked like something you’d seeing coming out of Asia.

The palettes are portrayed as a shimmery shade selection in promo images that offer a luminous finish to eyes. I think Maybelline successfully captured “luminous” here but the formula might not be everyone’s bag.

Take a look!

Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup Collection

Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup
Funny story…I went to the Chanel counter recently and my regular MA was sadly not there so I struck up a conversation with the manager at the counter and she tried to sell me some snow in Summer. Kiddin’. She tried to convince me to try some skincare and proceeded to tell me my skin was a combination. Eh? News to me! I thought I was terribly dehydrated. Was she trying to sell me something or am I really a combination skin type? What? Have I gone through life thinking I’m dry and all this time I’m a combo?

Naa can’t be.

Seriously?

Shrug.

Either the case I’m def not oily that much we’ve established but good news for oily skin girls! Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup Collection is a newly launched line of base products to take up sword in hand and battle your shine away.

Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser Review

Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser 1

Looks like Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser came out early this Spring but I’m just hearing about it now.

Anyone try it?

Supposedly it transforms dull, tired skin to visibly brighten and refreshes it in as little as four uses.

Hmmm considering I have dull skin I decided to try it.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick 1

I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick

A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.

L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Swatches

LOreal Youth Code BB Cream Swatches 2

Bird, bird, bird is the word. Actually BB Cream is the word. BB Creams are taking the drugstore market by storm this Summer and more and more brands continue to introduce their take on a BB Cream that’s almost always so very different from what I have seen and enjoyed from Asia.

But facts is facts some of these formulas are rocking tinted moisturizers at best so props for that.

The next brand to take on BB Cream is L’Oreal Youth Code with a BB Cream Illuminator.

Here’s a really sneak peek as I’m busy testing it out for the past few days and will review it in full shortly!
