L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush Review & Swatches

LOreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush

L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush is a contouring and illuminating blush created in six shades for Spring 2013.

These have a lightweight, mousse-like texture much like Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush. The lighter texture is supposed to give skin a more youthful, healthy “lifted” look with a texture that doesn’t settle into fine lines. There’s irony in the “doesn’t settle into fine lines” because the formula made me look like I have monstrously huge pores when in fact my pores are so tiny you’d need a magifying mirror to actually see them so I can just imagine what they’d do on a finely lined face.

Take a look!

New Gadget Alert on the Cheap: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Steamer Solutions Facial Device

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Steamer Solutions Facial Device
I was planning on blogging the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Steamer Solutions Facial Device early this week but I got sidetracked. I know, do we really need another beauty tool in our lives? But the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Steamer Solutions Facial Device ($125) seemed like something I could really use this Winter considering my dry skin seems out of control at the moment.

This professional steamer delivers a constant flow of moisture for dry, dehydrated skin….but $125? Ouch!

I found a SUPER deal though if you have room in your life for a new gadget!

It’s been a while since I said YOU need this but dude, you NEED NARS Reflecting Setting Powder.

Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation

Wet n Wild Cover All Cream Foundation is possibly one of the nicest budget foundations I’ve come across in a long time. At $3.59 with a $1 off coupon I paid a mere $2.59 at Harmons for it.

Wha?!?! Unheard of! Decent foundation for under three bucks? How is that possible?

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment Review & Swatches

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer Treatment

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment is a newly formulated Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer which contains vitamin C that helps fight dark spots over time as it covers them. Maybelline promises to visibly decrease dark spots in as little as four weeks so not only does it concealer but it treats aging spots, dark spots, acne scarring, and sunspots.

Concentrated vitamin C is a tricky little ingredient and isn’t always stable or effective at brightening/whitening. I’d probably have to try this for a year or more to see the best results so I’ll only be discussing the texture, coverage, etc…of this as a concealer but not as a treatment.

I like the idea it could be treating my problem areas though and if it works all the better. I’ll update this post should I see any results in the future on dark spots.
