Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer SPF 20 Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer SPF 20

Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer ($20) is the first cream concealer from the brand. This is launched in an eight shade selection and not only has a perfectly creamy texture but also boasts a wonderful SPF 20.

It’s such a rarity that eye creams and concealers contain SPF so this is a nice, refreshing change.

Let’s take a look!

L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012 L’Oreal True Match Blush in The Muse’s Blush Review & Swatches

L’Oreal True Match Blush The Muse’s Blush

The new L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012 Collection features four, limited edition shades of L’Oreal True Match Blush. I purchased two of these from L’Oreal’s Project Runway Fall 2011 Collection and absolutely adored them so I was quite excited with a relaunch of new shades.

I’ve been trying to hunt around my local drugstores for the new display for the Fall 2012 launch but no luck yet. Anyone else have better luck than me?

L’Oreal True Match Blush in the Muse’s Blush is the perfect shade of blush not only because I love peach but because, hey, it’s kinda sorta named after me!

Maybelline Gold Shimmer Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Gold Shimmer Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow 1

As you know Maybelline has introduced eight shades of limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow. Wahoo excited much?

I’ve never been a fond fan of cream eyeshadows but a few years ago I just completely fell in love with the formula. Dare I say, sometimes, I feel like I like it more than powder.

The introduction of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow was really quite an epiphany for drugstore makeup. This is proof positive that drugstore makeup has really evolved. These are on par with MAC Paint Pots in terms of quality and what’s not to like about the $5-$7 price tag!

Today I’m taking a look at one of the new shades, Gold Shimmer, you’re going to want this one.

MAC Styleseeker Eyeshadow Duo

MAC Styleseeker sees the release of four limited edition shades of Eyeshadow x 2 Palettes. I don’t typically rave the MAC Eyeshadow Duo compacts as these seem to fail for me for some reason but two shades from this release were a rather pleasant Fall surprise.

If you like Fall shades that resemble freshly fallen leaves do check these out.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation Review & Swatches

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation

The new YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation ($55) is a terribly over indulgent little purchase on my part. I really had to check this one out for myself so I indulged in two shades.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation is inspired by YSL’s cult favorite Touch Eclat Pen. With added sun protection (SPF 19) this is a weightless foundation that targets shadowy areas on your face and adds light. The foundation enhances your own natural skin tone leaving behind a weightless finish.

Here are a few thoughts.
