Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 Review & Swatches

Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 1

What’s better than a single Sleek Make Blush? Three of ‘em! There’s just something about variety when it comes to makeup and more is always the order of business as far as I’m concerned.

Sleek recently introduced their Blush by 3 Palettes which includes three next to full size blushes in a single slim line compact. I actually ordered ALL the shades after getting a press sample for review but I had issues with my order boo! So I only have the one shade to review for you today but will follow up with swatches of the others when they arrived.

Let’s take a look!

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection Review & Swatches

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection 22

Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Collection is making its debut today on my face. It’s super hot today, first real hot day we got in New York, so a bronze-y look seemed the order of business when I woke up this morning.

I feel Lorac is terribly overlooked sometimes because they seriously make some of the best eye shadows ever and have such great, inexpensive sets during seasonal releases. Their Summer 2012 Collection is sizzling and their new Lorac Wild For TANtalizer Set is a mere $39 taking care of lips, eyes, face, and accessorizes you with a nifty bag too.

Take a look!

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks EX03 Review & Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks EX02 Review

Although I reviewed and kinda sorta trashed the Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Blush in a past post I was terribly tempted by the limited edition EX03 shade that was released with the Lunasol Summer 2012 Collection.

This shade combines a pretty orange and a peachy pink in one powder that can be used together or separately.

Take a look!

the Balm’s What’s Your Type? Tall, Dark, and Handsome Mascara Review

the Balms Whats Your Type Tall Dark and Handsome Mascara 18

the Balm has two new mascaras that launched this Summer which will either lengthen or volumize your lashes. the Balm What’s Your Type Mascara? is available in a body builder formula for plumping lashes up and giving them a thicker, fatter finish or the tall, dark, and handsome formulation that creates longer lashes.

What’s your type?

I’ll take either thanks so much or better yet give me Tall, Dark, Handsome and Built….!

But we can’t have it all and I respect the Balm for not creating a formula that promises volume and only delivers length and vice versa. Dontcha hate mascaras that promise length and volume but you come out of with one or the other but never both?

Aggggrrrrr! That stinks.

Let’s check out the Balm What’s Your Type? Tall, Dark, and Handsome Mascara first.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub 1

Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!

I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.
