Physcians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer is a newly launched concealer for Spring 2013 in the new Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Collection.

Physcians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm Concealer 17

I think it’s great seeing Physicians Formula tackle the BB Cream realms because they’ve always offered VERY pigmented options in terms of foundation and concealer products. I think pigment is definitely an issue that American BB Creams are having a hard time tackling as many of the BB Creams launched here on our shores are very sheer.

Although I’m not fond of the over use of the words “BB Cream” I can’t deny that Korea does have its fair share of “BB” in product titles as well even though they aren’t BB Creams. So this Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer, I guess I can forgive the term being so loosely used.

Physicians Formula calls it the 1st ever blemish balm concealer to aid in concealing dark circles, puffiness, imperfections, blemishes, redness, and more.

Does it?

L’Oreal Magic Decrease Review & Swatches

LOreal Magic Decrease Primer

L’Oreal Magic Decrease is a new eyeshadow primer released for Spring 2013. You should be able to find this little guy tucked right into the new Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad displays.

Now I mentioned earlier when I did another post on this that L’Oreal did indeed have a primer of sorts like this in the past however, I never actually tried that base so I can’t compare Magic Decrease to it sadly.

Here are my thoughts on Magic Decrease.

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow 2

Neotrogena recently introduced their new Crease Proof Eye Shadow Sticks ($7.79 at Harmons) for Spring 2013. These are available in six shade selections and promise an all day wear thanks to a built in primer that prevents creasing or fading.

I typically like cream eyeshadow but I’m not really a fan of it in a chubby stick or pencil as in many cases this type of packaging seems to come along with a denser less than creamy eyeshadow. But there are any number of cream eyeshadow pencils that are fairly great out there.

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow sounded like a great concept for a quick eye look on the good for me and hey, if it had a built in primer all the better one less step in my rather long beauty regime in the AM.

Take a look!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm1

As you know Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm launched late last week. Urban Decay’s first ever BB Cream leaves a little to be desired in the pigmentation department and acts more as a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream. This alone had me worried whether I’d rant or rave it, love it or hate it.

However, after trying it out for the past several days I can honestly say it took me by surprise.

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio Review

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio Nude Eyes

The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio in Nude Eyes was recently launched as part of a new shade selection for Spring 2013.

The actual Kajal Eyeliner Trio isn’t new by any means as Physicians Formula started offering them I believe last Spring if memory serves correct.

Now I seem to be in the minority as I dislike the Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio. This seems to get raves across the board and I believe its because you get three pencils in one set. Hey, who doesn’t love more? However, I find the pencils dense, less than creamy, not in the least pigmented, and just meh…they bore me. I want intense, creamy eyeliner…these seem to dryly drag across my lids leaving behind lukewarm color.

Having said this I expected similiar results with this set.
