Dior Addict Lip Maximizer

The new love of my life happens to be Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper. Addicted to lip plumpers by any chances? If so you NEED this.

The one redeeming factor about Kim K is her ability to pull off the best nude lip looks every and I swear Dior Addict Lip Maximizer must somehow factor into her look!

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream Review & Swatches

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream

Rejoice my fair of skin friends! Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream is your savior! I tried two shades in this BB Cream and I must say they run quite fair so if you’ve had a problem finding a paler BB Cream I’d recommend checking this out.

But don’t check it out just for the shades because this formula is well worth a rave! Jane Iredale did a stupendous job getting the concept of a BB Cream down perfectly.

Take a look!

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm (Summer 2013) Review & Swatches

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms Summer 2013

I’m absolutely thrilled that Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm is back in four new limited edition shades for Summer 2013. Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm made an original appearance in Europe but they took nearly two years to hit our counters for Summer 2012.

I’m happy to have these back this year. Fact of the matter is they are just too cool for school. Especially since this year they come in a translucent base of emerald green and turquoise. You’ll just want to sit around and stare at them rather than apply them to your lips!

Take a look!

Dior Jelly Lip Pen Review & Swatches

Dior Jelly Lip Pen

Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.

Excited much?

I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.

How does Dior’s stand against them?

Take a look!

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Review & Swatches

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Spring 2013 Shades

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge is available in a few new shades for Spring 2013 so I quickly snatched up one (even though I was tempted to get them all).

Maquillage is one of the sub-brands that’s part of Shiseido in Japan. Such a shame its never made its way to the US.

The appealing aspect of Essence Glamorous Rouge was the colors were inspired by natural lip colors and tone so it gives you that “your lips but better” finish.

Take a look!
