Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the
Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.
I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.
I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.
Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.
Beth Ditto gave me a little case of polka dot fever. Polka dots aren’t the most flattering or wearable fashion option in the world but I absolutely adore accessories featuring them.
That’s why I think the new Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Polka Dot Compact Mirror released with the Hello Kitty Summer 2012 Collection is rather darling.
I beg you’ll agree!
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
launched a few short months ago in the UK. I purchased mine from England within weeks because I was so terribly curious about a drugstore BB Cream. Since Garnier was one of the only drugstore BB Creams within the US at the time of this release I was terribly curious how brands like Maybelline
, L’Oreal, etc….would do with the formula.
Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.
Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.
As you know, I recently blogged about the new Stila Travel Girl Palettes for Summer 2012. There are five available at the moment but knowing Stila’s track record they’ll probably do an exclusive here or there with Macy’s, Sephora, etc….
The style of palette isn’t actually new since Nordstrom first introduced their exclusive version several weeks ago entitled On The Road. This version is a collaboration between Nordsom BP (BP is a collection created by Nordie’s for teens/young women) and Stila. Stila has released a few BP collaborated palettes prior to this so I was kinda delighted by On the Road since it was a new and different variation from the typical budget palettes Stila has put out the last two years or so.
However, I think the uniqueness and specialness has worn off for me now that I know there will be five (or more) now.
Here’s my thoughts on the Stila + BP On the Road Palette, take the jump for the deets.
I was vaguely curious about the new Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Limited Edition Set released for Summer 2012 in Japan.
Lavshuca favors these little sets lately and hasn’t really updated with a major release in a while. I haven’t been following the brand lately since they release so many repetitive shades just in a new stylish way. It’s easy enough to get excited about a new design and packaging but sometimes I have to remind myself that the shades aren’t unique at all.
The Pure Blossoming Eyes Set is an example of repetitive shades however it did contain Clear Stay Eye Base which intrigued me so I ended up heading in for a purchase.
Here’s some thoughts!
