Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup 11

I feel like I have the oddest skin tone. I imagine it isn’t as dramatic as I think but sometimes it seems like I can never find the perfect shade of foundation. The skin on my body is darker than that on my face which is one freaky aspect. I consider myself medium fair with golden undertones which kinda stinks because when I hit up a counter they automatically start trying to match me up with a shade of beige-y orange foundation that simply looks awful on me.

I am absolutely in love with Estee Lauder for having a cool neutral shade that fits me! Thank the makeup gods, they are singing, here them?

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse Review & Swatches

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse 7

The Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Collection is kinda old news in Japan. Its never been released in the US but it did make it’s way across much of Asia upon release.

It happens to be one of those products that throws around “BB” in the title to garner attention but really that’s not a reference to the formula being a BB Cream. I notice the words BB Cream and BB seem to float around a lot when it comes to foundation and base products.

Japan typically releases new products prior to us with different names. For example, our new Bouncy Dream Blushes are called Jello Glow in Japan. I’m mentioning this because I was curious if we might see this BB Mousse pop up here in the US at some point. We sorta have in the form of Maybelline’s new foaming foundation but…packaging is different as well as formula slightly.

I find Maybelline products exceed quality in terms of pigmentation and formula in Japan versus much of the catalog products we have here in the US market so I expected Pure BB Mineral BB Mousse to be something I rejoiced in but sadly it didn’t quite happen that way.

Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation Review, Swatches, Photos

Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation 2

Seriously, doesn’t Koh Gen Do evoke images of Pat Morita telling Ralph Macchio to wax on, wax off!

Don’t hate on me but I was a total cheerleader for the Cobra Kai bastards, what? Daniel was just so annoying at times I wanted to bitch slap him.

Koh Gen Do may sound like the intricate art of karate but it’s actually a makeup collection that recently launched at Sephora and Sephora.com.

Take a look!
