Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee Review, Photos, Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee 001

You know that one makeup item that you tell (or maybe your friends and family are daring enough to tell you) yourself you shouldn’t be wearing? For me it’s highlighter…I’ve actually come to terms with telling myself, “No, you can’t wear shimmery highlighter.”

Yay me! I’m so happy when I give myself a good talking to and I listen.

I can’t really take advantage of highlighters because I have a round face and wearing them just makes things look even rounder. Not a good look.

However, I collect ‘em like the crazy beauty junkie I am. I have zillions of pretty powders that I don’t really use because if you notice, most of ‘em, almost always, have shimmer.

Of course, Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée pops up as part of their Fall 2011 Collection and my hands begin to sweat because I really need “da shimmery” powder.

Lucky enough I got one to show you today!

geoGirl Kewl (cool) Magic Face Refresher Review

geoGirl Kewl cool Magic Face Refresher 004

Call me crazy, call me criminally insane…call me what you will but I am currently obsessed with geoGirl Kewl (cool) Magic Face Refresher. What is that so crazy?

Well, it’s kinda sorta a kiddie-tween makeup line.

Blush!

geoGirl is a new collection of cosmetics that has launched exclusively at Walmart to replace the old Mary Kate and Ashley Collection (Yes, I have Mary Kate and Ashley cosmetics laying around here, sue me, shiz happens when you’re obsessed with beauty!  CLICK!) and was developed to appeal to 8-12 year old girls. The collection features packaging that is recyclable and is a fully developed line of cosmetics that features over 60 products that will be paraben-free and have natural ingredients like chamomile, lavender,white willow bark and calendula as well as pomegranate and green tea extracts.

As for me, well, I’m not 12 anymore, maybe not physically of course, but mentally I’m right about that age-group. Tack on a few more years. But I’m still obsessed with their Magic Face Refresher, proof positive you don’t have to be 12 years old to enjoy geoGirl.

Clinique Lid Smooth Antioxidant 8 Hour Eye Colour Review, Swatches, Photos

Clinique Lid Smoothie Eye Colour 001

Sometimes you have to keep us makeup junkies interested. We’ve tried it all so it’s hard to get us juiced up about a new product.

Cream eyeshadow isn’t exactly my idea of breaking new ground however one that promises an eight hour wear and includes a rather nifty cooling applicator….hmmm, now you’re attracting my interest.

The new Clinique Lid Smoothie Eye Colour promises an eight hour formula, comes in a range of 12 shades, and has a cream to powder formula but that’s not the cool part, “cool” get it? Each shade comes with a cooling applicator!

DuWop Caribbean IcedTeas Lip Treatment Review, Swatches, Photos

DuWop Caribbean IcedTeas Lip Treatment 001

DuWop released three new IcedTeas Transulcent Lip Treatments with their Isla Sirena Collection. These aren’t a new idea by any means as DuWop had a tinted version that I reviewed in a prior post they are however, available in new, refreshing flavors.

Let’s take a look!
