E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

E.L.F. when you do things right you do things right and your new Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder is all kinds of right.

At some point in my makeup life I avoided powder under my eyes in a major way. It was aging me terribly and just wasn’t a good idea all around. I discovered Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and proceeded to hate all over it. At the time I was just starting to have issues with dryness under my eyes and was really struggling with how to treat the issue. Needless to say after I started moisturizing my eyes properly I enjoyed Laura’s powder and later discovered even nicer products for settling my concealer like Skin Food’s Salmon Powder and Benefit Powderflage.

Needless to say when E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder launched I was curious. Three dollar setting powder? Mmmm…!

Take a look!

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 was released in Japan this Spring and recently we got got the launch of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil–Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++ here in the US.

Interesting that the formulas appear quite similar but offer different levels of protection.

I got mine from Japan however, I swatched the version we have available here in the states and I’ll say both have great formulas that seem pretty much identical outside the fact we have an SPF 42 and Japan offers the SPF 50 option. The version here in the US is more of a milky liquid or what I refer to as a traditional SPF formula versus the creamier version of the Japanese release.

Let’s take a look!

Vincent Longo Perfect Shine Lip Gloss Costa Fiore Review & Swatches

Vincent Longo Perfect Shine Lip Gloss Costa Fiore

Finally, vampy lips you will be mine! Vincent Longo Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Costa Fiore is probably one of the easiest ways to get a a vampy look down without coming out of looking like Elvira Mistress of the Dark.

Anyone who can pull off a vampy lip gets major points from me because I find it terribly difficult. Not only does it overwhelm my face but in many cases the color I choose tends to migrate around my lip line and ends up all over my chin, cheeks, and other parts of my face.

Shades of deep, dark red just aren’t my BFF.

Let’s take a look at Costa Fiore, promise it’s the easiest way to pull off a vampy lip look without being too bold.
