Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo Review & Swatches

Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Sunkissed

Avon recently introduced two new limited edition True Color Eyeshadow Duo Palettes with their Fiji Paradise Summer 2013 Collection. I picked up the color Sunkissed with a recent Avon order I did because it had a very pretty corally peach shade in it. The other shade Luscious Orchid is a purple and brown combo which I skipped out on.

I don’t technically like Avon Eyeshadow particularly their quads and duo palettes. Creams, powders…I’ve never really had a successful run with Avon Eyeshadow unfortunately. But sometimes my love of peach leads me into a purchase and in this case I decided hey, maybe the True Color Eyeshadow Duo would be better than the quads I’ve tried in the past.

Let’s fine out if it was.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee Review & Swatches

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee Blush

I wasn’t completely sold on Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee Blush when I was testing it. But the more I tested this little gel blush the more I started to love it.

These are an interesting formula that’s one part gel, one part stain, and all glowing color. I thought they might be a product similar to Korres Cheek Butter which I disliked due to the dewy finish but actually they turned into something FAR, far bettter.

Take a peek!

Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Blush

Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Blush in Skinny Pink Latte

You might remember Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Blush from the Laura Geller Fresh Brewed Beauty Collection that was featured on QVC a good number of months ago.

I signed up for auto delivery on that set and recently got Skinny Pink Latte Baked ImPRESSions Blush with my last shipment. It couldn’t have come at a better time since this shade is a rather lovely warm dusky pink perfect for Summer.

Take a peek!

Rimmel Coral Garden Moisture Renew Lipstick (Fall 2013) Review & Swatches

Rimmel Coral Garden Moisture Renew Lipstick Fall 2013

Rimmel reintroduces us to Moisture Renew Lipstick this Fall with a new selection of shades in the Dazzling Duchess special display popping up now at drugstores.

It took me a hot second to firgure out if I had or hadn’t tried Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick before so I headed home, sorted through my stash, and realized Rimmel is merely re-pimping these out in new shades of Berries, Pinks, and Nudes.

I only picked up a single shade from this new launch, Coral Garden, and I think I’m set as far as these lippies go.

Let’s take a look!

L’Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream Review & Swatches

LOreal Visible Lift CC Cream1

As I’m busy exploring CC Creams this Summer I was excited by L’Oreal Visible Lift CC Cream as it was easy enough to get in drugstores here in the US. It recently launched and I came across it for $10.49 at Harmons and I instantly snatched up both shades available.

I suspect it’ll be considerably higher priced at CVS, Walgreens, etc…so it sure is helpful that I’m here to tell you how BADLY the formula turned out.

Ugh! Do not buy!
