Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Tinted Taupe Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Tinted Taupe 5

Yeah, yeah I’m still busy punishing myself with the evil, dry formula of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick. I can’t help myself. They keep putting out these killer shades that I have a hard time saying no to, cut a beauty junkie a break, it’s a jungle out there.

I recently reviewed my kinda sorta HG (holy grail) color of choice at the moment from the Maybelline Color Sensational Nude and Natural Collection, Cinnamon Stick.

At the time that I purchase Cinnamon Stick I also snatched up Tinted Taupe which I’m loving it as well….

But Y U have such a rubbish formula Color Sensational?

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk Review & Swatches

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk 1

Would you like a little NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with your eyeshadows and cookies?

This little gem has been raved the makeup blog over but I’ve never indulged personally until recently. Makeup junkies rave it for its ability to enhance the shade of shadows, lock shadows in place while acting as a primer, and just generally act as a perfect base for loose pigments and minerals.

All true…all true!

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 2

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 11

Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.

Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Endless Pearl Review & Swatches

LOreal Infallible Eyeshadow Endless Pearl 2

Here’s an interesting little find! I recently located a L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in the shade Endless Pearl on a special display at Walmart which contained new colors.

I actually thought this was one of the new shades as don’t recall ever seeing it when the product launched at my local drugstore.

What’s so special about Endless Pearl?

It’s matte! Yes! Matte! It’s possibly the only matte shade I’ve seen in the Infallible Eyeshadow Collection. Not that I’m a fond fan of matte shades but Endless Pearl is actually quite a nice one particularly for aging eyes to give them a more wakey wakey appearance.

Take a look!

Covergirl + Olay Brighten Up Pressed Powder

Covergirl + Olay Brighten Up Pressed Powder 1

I’m always a little wary of pressed powder as I have drier skin. I tend to avoid using it except occasionally in the Summer when my skin is showing signs of being a little oily.

Covergirl + Olay Pressed Powder is a new powder that promises to brighten skin as it softens the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles.

Take a look!
