Korres Goddess Beauty Color Collection Holiday 2012 Review & Swatches

Korres Goddess Beauty Color Collection Holiday 2012

Korres has some fun picks for Holiday 2012 including their new Goddess Beauty Color Collection. This is a good excuse to pick the set up as it contains a full size Magic Light Contouring Trio. Released sometime ago the Magic Light Contouring Trio was one that I missed out on. It’s been on my wish list for a while but for some reason I never got the chance to try it.

Let’s take a look!

BRTC Pore Magic Primer Review

BRTC Pore Magic Primer 1

BRTC Pore Magic Primer was gifted to me by a friend who was quite exhausted listening to me whine about the evils of silicone primer.

Hmm did that happen?

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse was recently released in Japan. We haven’t seen this one here in the US but fans of Shu’s original UV Mousse will be quite familiar with this one.

The original Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Mousse offered SPF 30 and came in a soft, mousse formula that absorbed easily. I don’t think they actually carry it anymore in the US but don’t quote me, it’s been a while since I explored Shu’s master line.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse simply adds the benefits of whitening to the mix. So if you’re looking to brighten, whiten, or ease dullness on your face it might be one you’d select over the original UV base.

Take a look!
