Lancome Blush in Love Review & Swatches

Lancome Blush in Love

Lancome Blush in Love Powder Blush launched with the Lancome Spring 2013 Collection. This is Lancome’s fresh, youthful take on makeup because really, I know you’re thinking “Oh Lancome, that’s my grandma’s makeup!”.

But with Emma Watson modeling for Lancome the past two years or so the brand has started to gather a much more younger generation of makeup users. And with cute offerings like the Blush in Love Palettes why wouldn’t they?

I love Lancome’s makeup but yes, sometimes it does feel a little more mature and grown up. So it’s refreshing to see a more youthful and “fun” collection from the brand.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer 3

I’ve never tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so I thought I’d give it a test prior to trying the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream as it would be easier to compare the two formulas.

Companies are a little guilty of switching around the names of their Tinted Moisturizers and simply adding “BB Cream” to new packaging so I wasn’t sure if Aveeno was doing the same thing. Both Covergirl and Olay have done this recently…!

After I review Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer I’ll follow up with my review of the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream to compare the two formulas.

Here’s my thoughts on the tinted moisturizer formula and I’ll follow up shortly with my thoughts and comparisons to the BB Cream formula!

Dior Espiegle Addict Lipstick Review & Swatches

Dior Addict Lipstick Espiegle

Dior Addict Lipstick in Espiegle was released with the Dior Cherie Bow Collection for Spring 2013. Considering how bold Dior went with their Rose Charmeuse, Espiegle makes the perfect sheerer addition to use in conjunction with those bright shadows.

NARS Persia Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

NARS Persia Eye Shadow

I feel like Emily the Strange this morning wearing NARS Persia Single Eyeshadow. It creates that sunken in goth girl eye look. I used it with a bit of brown as the shade is too intense to be worn alone. Even though, if it was up to me, I’d probably wear it all over my lid and happily go around with bright tangerine lids.

Shrug, I’ve worn weirder shades in the past I’m sure.

Love bright shades of orange?

You need this!

Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream Review & Swatches

Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream

Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream recently launched for Spring in two shades selections of Light and Medium. At $32.50 it is one of the more mid-range BB Creams you’ll see here in the US even though it is available at drugstores and Ulta.

One thing I personally love about BB Cream is how it brightens up my skin and eases dullness. It’s two of the deciding factors for me when reviewing BB Creams, “Does it brighten my skin up?” “Does it ease dullness?” These are important issues for me so I choose BB Creams that work to address these issues.

Although Vichy ProEven Mineral BB Cream isn’t as creamy as Korean BB Cream it still manages to address dullness and brightens up my face which makes it solid gold brilliance. A little more SPF, a creamy texture with a little more moisture and I’d definitely feel like it was near perfect.

Here’s a look!
