Stila Love at First Blush Review & Swatches

Stila Love at First Blush 11

Stila’s legendary Make Me Blush was the star of my Spring 2011 haul.

At a mere $14 it was such a sweet little treat last year.

I was obviously excited when Stila gifted us this year with Love at First Blush but I must admit the peachiness of Make Me Blush still reigns supreme in my blush world.

Let’s take a look at the Stila Love at First Blush.

Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm 3

If you’re unfamiliar with BB Creams I do suggest reading this post prior to reading my review of the new Stila Stay All Day 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balm. Hopefully it’ll enlighten you to what a BB Cream is.

With Summer here, we’ll be seeing more and more BB Creams popping up but these products aren’t new by any means as they have been popular in Korea for a very long time and just over the last year or two Japan and the rest of Asia.

BB Creams are a cool product in the fact they offer flawless, long wearing coverage with the added benefit of anti-aging, whitening, and SPF ingredients to keep skin looking its very best. There are SO many brands of BB Creams in Korea in a variety of formulas to try but lucky enough we are a bit more limited here in the US. I say lucky because sometimes it does get overwhelming and finding just the right BB Cream for your skin tone and issues comes down to trying many products before finally finding just the right one for your tone, skin type, and issues. Believe me, I’ve tried hundreds!

Not many Western brands have succeeded in capturing the idea, concept, and formula of an Asian BB Cream but the attempts and tries so far are interesting.

Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm will essentially be a disappointment if you’ve tried Asian BB Creams before however it might just prove a win for those who haven’t been initiated into the world of Asian BB Creams.

Let’s take a look!

Benefit Sun Beam Review & Swatches

Benefit Sun Beam 3

Just for the record I am a misguided, lonely soul when it comes to highlighter application. I’m not sure if its ok to admit that I own a ton of highlighting products but don’t technically know how to apply them correctly.

Oh the horror!

The woe!

I did give Benefit Sun Beam a try out last week though just so see how much I’ve evolved in my highlighter application.
