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

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow Mood Boosting Blush Rose 13

So far I haven’t had too much success with the Happy Booster Collection from Physicians Formula. The bronzer wasn’t my shade, too muddy and the transparent powder ended up being a tad too frosty for me….

But I’m not quite yet ready to give up so today I’m testing out Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush.

Good?

We’ll see!

Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup Review, Swatches, Photos

Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup 9

If you hit up your drugstore for Spring makeup you’ll have some rather refreshing options in the foundation department. Both Almay and Revlon have new hydrating mineral foundation available. My recent test out with Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup ended rather badly but I still wanted to test our the Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup as well out of curiosity.

The idea behind the powders is that they give a burst of cool, refreshing finish. These are ideal placements for Spring considering your face is probably dry and suffering from the Winter blues and something cool, refreshing, and hydrating as a base would be a fab little pick. Agreed?

Sadly, Almay’s version proceeded to oxidize right on contact and offered very little in the way of coverage. Let’s check out Revlon and see if they have a better product on their hands!

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer Review

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer 1

I’ve always yearned for day that I would wake up and fall deeply in love with Benefit That Gal, it never happened. Sad sigh. Which is why I was pretty skeptical that the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Correcting Primer probably would fall into the realms of a no go.

The new range features three shades of primer to address various issues. The one I’m reviewing for you today is the Pink Highlighter which is a 3 in 1 Corrector, Primer, and SPF. The promise of smooth, brighter skin on the box tempted me however the color and idea reminded me very much of That Gal and my downfall with the product…

What did I think?

Check it!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipgloss 007

For Spring 2011 Rimmel has introduced an extension to its Moisture Renew Lipstick in the form of a Moisture Renew Lipgloss.

I’m not a fan of the lipstick sadly however those that are might find that the gloss is a good one to follow up with when using the lipstick however it does hold its own in the pigment department for wearing by itself if you so please.

I kinda have a love hate relationship with it at the moment after trying it out.

Here are my thoughts!
