Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush Review & Swatches

Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush 1

At a glance and a swatch Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush is incredibly disappointing. Perhaps for a super fair skin tone but for me? No go.

I purchased it in Winter Cherry, proceeded to swatch it and was crushed that it barely showed up on my skin. I liked the color and was kinda hopeful it would prove a more pink version of Tarte Glisten but that swatch really slayed me.

Needless to say I tossed it on the side for a few days and almost didn’t bother trying it out.

Sure glad I finally reached for it!

It’s lovely!

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder Review

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder 8

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.

Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.

One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.

Thanks Crystal

Let’s take a peek at this!

I’m quite eager to get to the review.

Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream Review & Swatches

Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream Review

I’m guilty, I admit it, I wrote off Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Creams ($21) when they launched.

I’m just not a fan of cream lipstick. I find most creams drying and the longer you wear them the more moisture they suck from your lips. When there isn’t anymore moisture to suck out they go for your soul! It’s deadly.

No..but seriously. I also get lip crumbs from cream lipstick. Lip crumbs are those little flaky gross pieces of lipstick that float around your dry mouth. It’s not pretty people.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick changed how I feel about creams. They’ve managed to create a moisturizing cream formula that looks and feels incredible on lips.

How’d they do dat?

Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer Swatches

Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer

One more sleep until Batman and no my azz is not getting up at 12:01 AM to see it. This is not Harry Potter people, we can wait until Friday night like grown adults (there was some sarcasm in there I’m sure!).

Excited?

As for me, I wanna see Christian Bale flip out when he’s in the Bat suit. Just go ape $hit. He’s so sexy when he’s Mr Angry Entitled Actor. “I are an actor and I can rip you a new azzhole if I want to!” Go on with your bad self Christian, you know I love you! (Video not work safe, may contain cuss words).

He mentioned he couldn’t cope with the suit when he first tried it on and even thought he might have to reconsider the role because of it. I bet! That thing would give me a severe case of claustrophobia. Danai Gurira did a plaster for Michonne which was displayed at Comic Con (you could step into a “pets” role and take a photo with her) and I can’t help but admire celebrities for going to such extremes. At least with the bat suit they aren’t pouring plaster over your head and giving you two straws to breath out of.

P.S. I know some of you were terribly interested in the Missha Signature Extreme Cover Concealer I recently reviewed.

As you know I purchased shade 21 but there is a shade 23 available. After my review I got a ton of e-mails asking after 23 and did I know how much darker it was.

Well…

Turns out there isn’t a heap of difference between the two shades.

Take a look!
