Majolica Majorca PK415 Puff de Cheek Review & Swatches

Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek PK415

Majolica Majorca released two limited edition shades of Puff de Cheek for Summer 2012 one of which was Raspberry Macaron. I already raved Cherry Macaron rather hard so I thought I’d haul out Raspberry today and review it.

Ok, so I’m a little late and Raspberry might be a little harder to find but it is well worth checking out!

Benefit Fake Up Concealer Review & Swatches

Benefit Fake Up Concealer

The new Benefit Fake Up Crease-Control Hydrating Concealer ($24) will be available this March in three shades. I happen to be a huge fan of Benefit concealers particularly Boi-ing which has played a very important part of my early twenties concealing adventures. When I heard Benefit Fake Up Concealer was launching I immediately couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and play!

Hydrating concealer? Check I need some of that considering how dry my eyes are! Crease-control? I need that too please! Thanks every so much.

So what’s the verdict on Benefit’s newest concealer?

Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush Review

Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush

The Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush is a nifty little tool for applying Hourglass’s new Ambient Lighting Powder. Whether you want to spend $35 on a brand new brush just for apply this powder is the real question.

Believe me, I questioned it myself. Ambient Lighting Powder is getting quite a few raves across the beauty bloggingsphere at the moment and it seems the best application technique includes this new brush.

Do you need it?

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB Review & Swatches

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB 1

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB is an interesting new BB Cream from the brand that features a bounce-y texture that just makes you want to sit around and play with it.

I was tempted to make a little video featuring it as I wanted you to see the texture in as true to life medium as possible. The thing is, the bb cream, almost has a life its own. Seriously! It’s ALIVE! You can pop a finger in it, scrap some off the top, place a brush in it, and after a few seconds to a minute it’ll “grow” over and become fresh and new again. It’s odd! We have to be careful, it might take over the universe at some point!

Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream Review & Swatches

Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream

Today I’d like to introduce you to Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream which will launch in March for Spring 2013. Quite exciting if you ask me as I’m a huge BB Cream and Clarins fan.

Clarins doesn’t get enough good vibrations as I think folks commonly associate it with a more mature collection of makeup and skincare but please don’t write it off so quickly. They have very elegant makeup and quite effective skincare too.

You can imagine my delight when I heard they were introducing this product.

Let’s take a look!
