L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick 1

I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick

A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.

L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Swatches

LOreal Youth Code BB Cream Swatches 2

Bird, bird, bird is the word. Actually BB Cream is the word. BB Creams are taking the drugstore market by storm this Summer and more and more brands continue to introduce their take on a BB Cream that’s almost always so very different from what I have seen and enjoyed from Asia.

But facts is facts some of these formulas are rocking tinted moisturizers at best so props for that.

The next brand to take on BB Cream is L’Oreal Youth Code with a BB Cream Illuminator.

Here’s a really sneak peek as I’m busy testing it out for the past few days and will review it in full shortly!

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette In the Heat Review & Swatches

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette In the Heat 41

Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette possibly single handedly changed my mind about Sephora make up. This was such a great palette full of lovely natural, nude shades of color.

I’m typically not a fan of Sephora’s house brand but truly the Moonshadow Palette is a mind changing experience particularly if you love baked shadow formulas.

For Summer 2012 Sephora has released a new color variation of the palette entitled In the Heat which I quickly snapped up.

Take a look!

Lancome Le Curler Review

Lancome Le Curler 1

Well, I gotta say you’d have to tear my Shu curler from my cold dead fingers. I love it. I’ve tried numerous curlers and a rare few have come close to being as incredible as my beloved Shu but none have yet to take its place in my heart.

Lancome Le Curler
, Lacome’s first ever eyelash curler, recently released and I was all about checking it for myself so when it passed across my desk last week I decided to tuck my Shu away for a spell and test out Le Curler.

Here are my thoughts!
