Smashbox Baked Cheek & Highlighter Blossom Review and Swatches

Smashbox Blossom Baked Cheek and Highlighter 1

Smashbox’s Fall Collection, Masquerade should be at your local Sephora. Have you seen it? Haul any of it? Wanting to? What did you think so far?

Along with the release Smashbox Masquerade Baked Fusion Soft Lights Palette was introduced which is a very pretty palette however a little overly done since Clinique has similar palettes and heck Smashbox has done and redone this style of highlighter before.

But…

We aren’t afraid of things that have been redone and I’m always of the mentality, as are most of you, that one can never have too many pretty powders.

Which is why I wanted to introduce you to Smashbox Blossom Baked Cheek & Highlighter which could prove to be a nice investment.

Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color Review and Swatches

Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color 14

Jill Stuart is a luxury brand of cosmetics that started out life exclusively in Japan and more recently spread across Asia. The bad news is the product I’m about to review for you is not available within the US, I got it from Japan, however the good news is some of the Jill Stuart Cosmetic Collection is sold in the Jill Stuart Soho store (details) if you get a craving for the brand after reading this post.

Those of you who have never heard of the brand can rewind back to 3 or 4 years ago when I first started Musings and read my Introduction to Japanese Brands to higher your education a little bit and check out my Jill Stuart Spotlight from my really strange MuseTV days.

Ahh the evolution of Jill Stuart blush. She started out loose, became a solid, and now she’s loose again! The new Jill Stuart Blush Blossom Dual Cheek Color is a compact form of Jill Stuart Loose Blush. It’s chic, it’s gorgeous, and it’s brand new for the Jill Stuart Fall Collection 2010.

Let’s take a look!

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric Review and Swatches

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric 3

I’ve held off my review on Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric for a while now. I purchased all three shades of this blush early in July or so when it originally released. But counters had gotten a very limited stock in plus online was sold out for a little bit which is why I didn’t want to tempt and tease you with something that might prove unattainable.

I thought these were running for a limited time but two of my Armani Beauty counters have recently restocked and they are readily available again on www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com so I’d said it’s about time I told you all about them.

Want the good word?

Stila Custom Color Blush Review and Swatches

Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.

Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.
