Today’s order of business involves a review and swatches of the new the Balm Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Face Palette ($39.50). Excited? Me too! I always get super hyped when the Balm released a new eyeshadow and cheek palette and I really loved the original Balm Voyage so a new addition, I’m up for it.
Let’s take a look!
The Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Highlighter ($19.99) is a new limited edition highlighter that recently launched with the Sonia Kashuk Spring 2015 Makeup Collection that’s available exclusively at Target.
I happen to be one of those obsessive highlighter collectors who loves beautiful facial powders but never uses them! I will say that it always delights me when I can double up a highlighter as a blush because in that case I’m way more inclined to use it versus it hiding it away in my beauty vault and only taking it out to pet it and whisper sweet nothings in its ear.
The E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette ($6.99) is one of several, limited edition products launching with the E.L.F. Cosmetics Frozen Elsa Makeup Collection. As you might have noticed from a few my past posts E.L.F. has really gone all out with Elsa’s Collection. They are apparently doing things a lot differently this time and instead of launching items in sets they are doing cuter, individually palettes and makeup products.
Let’s take a look at the E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette!
Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala Cooling Multi-Stick ($25) is new, limited edition highlighter that launched with the Sephora + Pantone Spring 2015 Collection. I actually hauled this when it originally launched but it arrived broken, I returned it, but was unable to get another one because it sold out! When I originally posted about the the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 there was a lot of dislike expressed for the shade so it surprised me that this year’s Sephora + Pantone Makeup Collection sold in such record time!
Sephora has teamed up with Pantone since 2013 and it all that time I can’t say any of the collection sold as quickly as the Marsala one did.
Anyway, needless to say I was on the hunt for the Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala Cooling Multi-Stick to add my collection and find it recently in store (actually I find a few so maybe Sephora is restocking finally?!).
Let’s take a look!
Why does Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care Instant Blurring CC Eye Cream ($12.99) have such a bloody long name? Holy cow!
Physicians Formula Super CC Color Correction + Care Instant Blurring CC Eye Cream is a new single shade (Light/Medium) color correcting eye cream that promises to blur wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, crow’s feet, puffiness, imperfections, crepey lids, sagging, and signs of fatigue.
Yup, another very over marketed product that excels at none of what it promises.
