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!

Here’s the display for the new Kate Moss Lipstick Collection from Rimmel I blogged earlier today. I wasn’t really following the collection when it released in the UK earlier this year but it appears we didn’t get the entire shade selection the UK got sadly.

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer 0021

Garnier has some new wrinkle reducer out. Notice that snarky way I said that.

Sorry…I just don’t completely buy into all of Garnier’s claims and think they could do so much more with their products particularly when they are creating gems like their gel moisturizers. Guys, let’s see more of that good stuff!

This one is a 2 in 1 product that features a helix swirl of moisturizer plus the addition of serum. A single product to firm skin and hydrate while it’s doing the anti-aging bit.

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer 001

Interestingly enough I’m seeing more and more products at my local drugstore that have testers out. That includes color cosmetics as well as skincare.

Mmm +1 for the drugstore!
