Maybelline Silver Strike Color Tattoo Metal 24HR Cream Shadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal 24HR Cream Shadow Silver Strike

Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal 24HR Cream Gel Shadow in Silver Strike is one of those very handy shades of eyeshadow you should have in your stash for the perfect smoky eye look.

Sadly, I haven’t really smoked my eye out in a while using a traditional black and silver shade selection. I feel like it emphasizes my tired eyes in a major way rather than gives them that sultry bedroom look (not that I’ve ever associated my mud brown eyes with a bedroom or sexy time but yeah, you know what I mean! ha!).

Maybelline introduced their Metal range of shades with a metallic finish for Spring 2013. This collection includes five must have shades. Many of these shades had me worried as metallic finishes sometimes go a little frosty on me but thankfully, thus far, they are proving some of my favorites from the Color Tattoo range.

Silver Strike definitely holds a good deal of appeal for a smoky metallic eye look should you desire.


Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream Launches at Drugstores

Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream

Aveeno is set to release a Clear Complexion BB Cream for Spring 2013 in drugstores. Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream will be available in two shade selections, Fair to Light and Medium to Dark, for $16.99.

Aveeno already has a tinted moisturizer of sorts in their general catalog (I’ve never tried it but it seems interesting) so I’m unsure if they simply renamed that TM or if this is a brand new product.

I think $16.99 is a tad expensive but I’m still quite interested in purchasing. I suspect it’ll be very sheer and even if it is I think it might just be a nice tinted moisturizer formula none the less.

I’m quite eager to check it out.

Which BB Creams at the drugstore have wow’ed you lately?

Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub Review

Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub

Earlier last week I raved Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Natural Facial Scrub so folks started asking me if I tried Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub…but of course! Outside of the Cocoa Butter one the Mint Julep is a fav as well (although I find the Cocoa Butter one a touch more hydrating).

If your flaky skin needs exfoliating but you don’t want to drop an expensive dime on one, well, grab this little guy up for as little as four dollars and get happy, glowing, soft skin for less!
