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!

Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit Review & Swatches

Golden Opportunity Tarte To Go Kit Summer 2013

What? $10 Tarte? Yup, the Golden Opportunity Tarte-To-Go Kit is a mere $10 bucks! This is a great way to try the new Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner without committing to a full size.

Hey, I know for a fact bronzers can be scary so who wants to dish out $37 only to find out they really don’t love the product they purchased?

Tarte gives you the perfect little deluxe sample packaged up with their cult favorite powder bronzer in Park Ave Princess so you can give it a try for yourself!

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer aka Apocalips Lip Lacquer as they are referred to in the UK are now available in US drugstores. Show Off Lip Lacquer is available in a range of fourteen shades and is a liquid lipstick slash gloss with full color coverage.

These are an exciting release as it seems like we’ve been literally awaiting their arrival on US shores for ages now. We also happened to get a bigger range of shades as the UK release only has eight colors available.

These are in special displays at the moment but they will become part of the Rimmel general catalog display later this Fall.

Let’s take a look!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

Thanks to my makeup sis Christine for not allowing me to give up on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Revlon recently reintroduced Super Lustrous Lipstick with a shine finish for Summer 2013/Fall 2013 in a range of new shades.

This newly reformulated lipstick now has a shiny finish however, some of the shades didn’t appeal to me so I casually slipped past them more than once at the drugstore. My reader and friend Christine mentioned how incredible they were and how there was indeed a coral I’d probably love and how I should try them and well, needless to say, she was convincing.

Unfortunately the coral was sold out but I did pick up Terra Copper which also happens to be a very me shade.

Here are my thoughts!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Pure Pigments Eye Shadow

Good news for the piggy fans out there as Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow are launching for Fall 2013. Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow will prove a unique product for the drugstore market as I can probably name, on one hand, the brands that offer such a product.

Granted, the online world is filled with pigment eyeshadow options in an array of gorgeous colors but not many brands at your local drugstore are offering them are they? Color Tattoo Pure Pigment Eyeshadow ($7.99) will definitely be a big pull for the drugstore beauty babes out there. L’Oreal was the last brand to do HIP Pigments if anyone remembers those and I believe NYX still offers their loose pigments but outside of that I can’t think of many brands doing a similar product at the moment.

Take a look!
