Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer 8

Maybelline has a new click pen concealer out entitled Dream Lumi Touch.

Sigh…

I was thinking how much I missed Dream Mousse Concealer, truly an HG concealer (holy grail) if ever I did see one. You know, how cool would it be if Maybelline did a concealer in a similar format as their new Dream Bouncy Blushes? You gotta admit that would be truly outrageous right?

I was hoping Dream Lumi might be a replacement for Dream Mousse Concealer but in a click pen!

Let’s take a look!

L’Oreal Infallible Le Gloss 8 Hour Lipgloss for Spring 2012

object width=”500″ height=”315″>

Toby’s back to bloggin’!

And he’s full of good cheer and news, heavy sarcasm.

Spoilers ahead.

We all knew we’d have to deal with Aidan being gone. That was hard enough but Sinead (Nina) will not be returning for Series 4 and Russell (George) says this will his final series. It’s unclear whether Russell will actually be in a few episodes or not at all. This was unexpected for me as I was already dealing with the loss of Mitchell but now George too?

Jesus, it’s like re-eventing the wheel here.

Michael Socha (Tom) becomes a prominent lead in Series 4 and another new lead male character is introduced into the mix of things!

Well, either the way Toby says it gives him license for bringing in new creatures, etc…so that’s something to look forward too eh?

Head over to www.bbc.co.uk if you’d like to read the blog post for yourself!

Anyway, if you’re not a Being Human fan that was quite boring but if you are, do discuss!

For the non-fans how about some makeup?

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara Review

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara 9

Fiber mascara aka OMG I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EYE GET IT OUT! is not my favorite mascara of choice.

I don’t do so well with fiber mascaras. Anytime I used them I always felt like I had a lash stuck up under my upper waterline and I go through the day absolutely miserable trying hard not to scratch an eyeball out trying to get to that imaginary hair.

Well, needless to say Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara was on my DO NOT WANT list of mascaras. This is a fiber extension mascara so it extends lashes using tiny little fibers.

Not good.

But I gave it a whirl and…

Beauty News: Bed, Bath, and Beyond Sells NYX Cosmetics

My Harmons Store is not connected to a Bed, Bath, and Beyond however they do sell NYX and have a huge range of drugstore makeup, etc…they are particularly fabulous at keeping up on new collections and they are about .50-$1.50 cheaper on most products compared to CVS, Walgreens, etc…

However, some folks don’t have Harmons or a Harmons attached to their Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I do however urge you to check out your local Bed, Bath, and Beyond as some of the stores prove as well stocked as Harmons (not sure why, but they are a tad more expensive). Harmons and BBB are the same entity essentially but some folks have the store and some don’t so that’s why I definitely suggestion checking out a few of your local BBB’s for beauty finds.

I’m bringing up the topic of these two stores because Bed, Bath, and Beyond will be carrying NYX. Only a few stores have the line but hopefully we’ll see more stores roll it out.

This is great as NYX does prove a little difficult to locate in stores sometimes and it’s nice not having to rely on the Internet to place an order.

Check out www.nyxcosmetics.com to see if a Bed, Bath, and Beyond store in your area is selling NYX.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Swatches

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Swatches 1

I’m the happy owner of a few Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes.

Many of you already tried them but I just got a chance to test them out yesterday, actually, I’m still in the midst of testing them out at the moment. Quite a few folks mentioned they were sheer and very subtle, true that….so far I’m have issues getting some of the lighter shades to show up on my skin. But the texture is rather awesome, I like the springy clay-like action of it! The texture kinda reminds me of a lighter version of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow.

Jump ahead for a few swatches!
