Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette Review & Swatches

Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette 11

The new Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette ($45) was inspired by brand founder and creative director Dany San’z love of Tango dancing. My sophistication level when it comes to Tango dancing is limited to the Tango scene in True Lies, anything else could result in me tripping and falling on my butt.

Dany learned to Tango at age three and has been a long time fan. Recently Dany was in Argentina doing the make up for “Tango Argentina” a high profile showcase organized by the city of Buenos Aires that featured some of the country’s most famous dancers.

Upon arriving home the idea for the Black Tango Palette was born.

The palette features four shades of Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Eyeshadows in rich shades of black accented with jewel tones such as red, green, and black.

Take a peek!

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse was recently released in Japan. We haven’t seen this one here in the US but fans of Shu’s original UV Mousse will be quite familiar with this one.

The original Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Mousse offered SPF 30 and came in a soft, mousse formula that absorbed easily. I don’t think they actually carry it anymore in the US but don’t quote me, it’s been a while since I explored Shu’s master line.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse simply adds the benefits of whitening to the mix. So if you’re looking to brighten, whiten, or ease dullness on your face it might be one you’d select over the original UV base.

Take a look!

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer Review & Swatches

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer 1

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer ($29) how I love you so! Just the cure for my dry eyes.

I dunno about you but I prep my dry under eyes to the extreme so that my concealer won’t crease or look flaky and uneven. Eye creams, serums, lotions, potions whichever provides the most moisture gets slapped under these old eyes in preparation for concealer.

The latest to join my prepping line up would be the newly launched Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer.

Me likey!

But….B fans, if you’re out there, be warned, Lush Emotional Brilliance is nothing like B Never.
