Estee Lauder Cyber White Extra Intensive BB Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Last year Estee Lauder introduced a travel exclusive BB Cream available in various airports in Asia. I believe mine came from Japan Duty Free but don’t quote me could have been Singapore.

From what I understand it was later also available in the UK but I can’t confirm this.

They now have a newer version of the cream available on counters in Japan and a few Asian countries called Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Cream SPF 35 where as mine is the CyberWhite Ex Extra Intensive Multi-Action Formula BB Cream SPF 35. After reading up on both it seems they are pretty much the same product but I haven’t tried the Brilliant Cells version so I can’t confirm.

This is probably one of the most expensive BB Creams I own. I’m raking my brain as I have 30-40 tubes in rotation and honestly, I can’t think of a BB Cream that cost me this MUCH. It retails for a whooping ¥5,460 (yen), near $60 USD.


Worth it?

Check it out after the jump!


SK-II Facial Treatment Cream Foundation

I was thinking about taking the plunge into the SK-II side of the pool this year. As I grow older I take my skincare more and more seriously and SK-II gets such rave reviews I thought it was about time that I invest some hardcore cash into some of their lotions and potions to see for myself if they are worth their hefty price tags.

For now I think I want to go steady with the SK-II Facial Treatment Cream Foundation first. I thought I’d woe it with a light dinner, maybe take it to good rom-com, treat it to ice cream after, and finish the night by asking if it wanted to be used as my daily foundation of choice.

To much too soon?



Yves Saint Laurent Jardin de Minuit Fall 2011

If blues or bolder shades are trending for Fall 2011, I’m so safe! I can’t seem to pull off blue as well as I used to lately due to aging eyes so I’m foreseeing a considerable savings in my makeup wardrobe fund if this keeps up!

Yay! Savings for Holiday 2011 Collections!

Wait, isn’t it Summer? Why am I even worried about this so soon?

Anyway, jump for the delicious images of Yves Saint Laurent Jardin de Minuit for Fall 2011.


Bobbi Brown Tortoiseshell Collection Bobbi Brown Fall 2011

I dunno what has me more excited this morning.

My hundredth round of watching the corny Twilight Breaking Dawn Trailer, yeah, I’m having my Twi-Hard fix or the fact that images from the new Bobbi Brown Tortoiseshell Collection have popped onto my screen.

Imma gonna say BB is way more exciting!



Review: Do You Need the New Clarisonic Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head?

I was just shy of breaking into two months with my Clarisonic Brush Head when I noticed they had a brand new Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head!

Dammit. I had a month to go with my current head plus this particularly head was for oily skin and larger pores neither of which I have. What’s a girl to do?

What a conundrum!

I purchased it.

I never claimed I have willpower.
