Smashbox Photo Set Pressed Powder Review, Swatches, Photos

Smashbox Photo Set Pressed Powder 1

Smashbox introduced Photo Pressed Powder a little bit ago so I’m a late reviewing this one. It’s been sitting in my review pile for far too long but it left so little an impression on me I was a bit lazy about getting a post up about it.

Smashbox makes it sound appealing enough marketing it as lightweight coverage with a fine, creamy formula that has a flawless finish.

But…it’s pretty disappointing.

Take a look!

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer 8

Maybelline has a new click pen concealer out entitled Dream Lumi Touch.

Sigh…

I was thinking how much I missed Dream Mousse Concealer, truly an HG concealer (holy grail) if ever I did see one. You know, how cool would it be if Maybelline did a concealer in a similar format as their new Dream Bouncy Blushes? You gotta admit that would be truly outrageous right?

I was hoping Dream Lumi might be a replacement for Dream Mousse Concealer but in a click pen!

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara Review

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara 9

Fiber mascara aka OMG I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EYE GET IT OUT! is not my favorite mascara of choice.

I don’t do so well with fiber mascaras. Anytime I used them I always felt like I had a lash stuck up under my upper waterline and I go through the day absolutely miserable trying hard not to scratch an eyeball out trying to get to that imaginary hair.

Well, needless to say Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara was on my DO NOT WANT list of mascaras. This is a fiber extension mascara so it extends lashes using tiny little fibers.

Not good.

But I gave it a whirl and…

Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Blush Nude Pink, Nude Peach Review, Swatches, Photos

Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Blush Nude Pink Nude Peach 1

Off topic story of the day…

My mum is in her mid 60′s and volunteers weekly at a church flea market thingy. Most of the ladies she volunteers with are in their 70-80′s but my mum still has a way with making friends with anyone and everyone no matter the age gap.

To make a long story short one lady she befriended is an 87 years old woman who recently had issues with her TV. So my mum of course volunteered to give her a TV she had hanging out in the basement. That’s my mum, she’ll give you the shirt off her back in a winter storm.

Problem? My mum doesn’t drive so she of course enlists me or my sister to do all her heavy lifting. I didn’t have time to drop the TV off needless to say. One night I had my mum in the car with me after I had taken her to Trader Joe and we passed her friend’s house. I turned to my mother and said “oh crap I forgot we had to drop that TV off to your friend!” she replied it wasn’t a problem at all but I still felt bad and told her, “Gosh what does she do without a TV? No news? What if the zombie plague hits?”

My mom, dead pan, turns to me and says, “What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her!”

I dunno but it cracked me up so hard. A dear little old lady, no TV, no way to watch the news, a possible outbreak of the plague, zombies wandering around her neighborhood and she doesn’t know it’s happening!

I seriously need to get that TV to her.

I’d feel bad if zombies ate her brains because of my negligence.

Anyway….utterly off topic but I hope it made you laugh as much as I did when my mom so seriously turned to me and said that!

Zombies, old ladies, and crazy as hell mothers aside how about a little look at some of the new shades of blush released with the Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.

Yay?

Jump!
