Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows Review, Swatches, Photos

Maybelline has consistently released some very high quality products under their Eye Studio Collection for the last two years or so now. Possibly the best release to date is their brand new, affordable, crazy cool Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows. I’ve seen these gems for as little as $5.99 at drugstores and when there’s a BOGO (Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off) you know its a solid gold beauty budget.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow Mood Boosting Lipstick 1

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Lipstick gets my vote for cute. Being a collector of Japanese and other Asian cosmetics for many years definitely influenced my taste in makeup. I love packaging that’s sweet and cute. Sadly, we don’t get a ton of cute makeup products in the US, not nearly as much as you’d be able to purchase if you lived in Korea or Japan but occasionally the odd piece pops up and in turn many of us get rather excited about it.

In the case of these new lipsticks from Physicians Formula I think they most definitely fit into the realms of cute and I immediately needed to own them. Heck, the formula could have been downright terrible but the packaging was so amazing I was easily blinded.

But did the quality of the lipstick live up to all that foo-foo packaging?

Take a look!

PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener 1

Brighten up tired eyes? I’m on that.

Between constant computer use at my office plus doing my blog and gaming…well, my eyes, they look tired. On top of that I’m getting to that age where I’m not always looking my freshest in the AM and I need a little helping hand to brighten my eyes up a bit and make them look wide awake and fresh,

Perhaps the new Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener is just the ticket!
