Mark Goes Neon for Summer 2014

Mark Neon Gaze Eye Shadow

Looks like Mark is going Neon for Summer 2014 as they let loose a range of playful Neon Gaze Eye Shadow Singles and Neon Kisses Sheer Lipgloss! Where as Maybelline went quite washed out with their Bleached Neons Collection for Summer 2014, Mark doesn’t hold anythingback and launches a range of bright, vibrant, fun shades for the Summer season!

You might just want some of these goodies if you love daring shades of color!

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation Review & Swatches

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation is a new oil free foundation that Covergirl is launching for Summer 2014 (it’s actually already in stores).

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Oil Free Foundation is a product that should be appealing to a more youthful ground since Covergirl has Katy Perry promoting it plus the packaging is a little bit fun and hip as well.

If you like lighter, creamier coverage you’ll enjoy this.

Take a peek!

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review & Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain promise the shine of a gloss, moisture of a balm, long wear of a stain, and the opaque coverage of a lipstick.

Available in 12 shades the new Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain formula is a nod to recently recent releases like Maybelline Color Elixir and L’Oreal Extraordinaire as well as Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains

These are a thicker product that do veer off into the realms of hybrid because they aren’t quite a gloss nor are they are a lipstick but more like a liquid like balm of sorts. They most remind me of Almay’s Liquid Lip Balm but not textured as similarly as Color Elixir or Extraordinaire both of which I find much lighter and less pigmented.

Let’s take a look!

Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Milani Rose Powder Blush

I was quick to come to the defense of Milani reintroduction of their Rose Powder Blush but I have to admit Milani Lady Rouge Rose Powder Blush did disappoint slightly.

I’ve had hit and miss issues with the newer Milani Rose Blushes. Some are great but some are a bit too dry and bright and this falls true for Lady Rouge.

Take a peek!

Jergens BB Body & Urban Decay BB Body Comparisons

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream

I imagine you’re thinking that the newly launched Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm is a dupe for Jergens BB Body Perfect Skin Cream which is why I decided to do comparisons of the two. I think it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that Urban Decay had launched a “Body BB Cream”. Strangely enough it was the budget brand that started the trend with the higher end following behind on it. Typically we see a big trend pop up for a product and a month to several months later you’ll start seeing similiar style products at the drugstore.

Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm

Not the case here.

Jergens was the first company to market a BB Cream for your body and Urban Decay followed close behind. I imagine as we head into Summer we are going to see MORE and more and more brands embracing this trend.

So here’s a comparison of Jergen’s version and Urban Decay’s.
