Anyone try Urban Decay’s The Revolution?

How are you making out with it?

Sadly, it was a FAIL for me. I actually wrapped it up tight and dropped it into the mail today because I seriously couldn’t get a knack for it and was scared I’d end up poking an eye out with the damn thing.

Le sigh!

Such a cool idea but in my hands a very lethal device.

Mark has some new products you can get your lashes on with sans anything too dangerous!

Jump!

Neutrogena Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection SPF 55 Review

Neutrogena Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection SPF 55 8

This Summer felt like the Summer of the SPF. SPF has evolved a fair bit this year and I’m seeing more and more options that offer a higher SPF factor of 50 and up. Such products are the norm in the Asian market however here in the US we tend to stick to the 30 range.

Another interesting evolution is drugstore makeup brands offering SPF options. Asia is flooded with a variety of SPF products and brands in particular offer not only color cosmetic options but also an SPF product or several. It’s very rare that there isn’t some SPF option available from most brands in Asia.

Versus here in the US, where we don’t normally see our favorite brands such as say Maybelline or Revlon offering a product available exclusively for sun protection.

Neutrogena changes all that with it’s new Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection. Does this mean we’ll see more drugstore brands offering SPF products all their own?

Let’s hope so!

Baviphat Sugar Girl Candy Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Baviphat Sugar Girl Candy Gloss 009

Baviphat, or how I’m tempted to say it, “Baby Phat”, is a Korean brand that sells various makeup bits and bobs that has a certain Benefit Cosmetics feel and look.

An extension of their collection is called Sugar Girl. The products in this collection are geared towards a more youthful crowd….of course, me being the immature one, loves anything they do in the Sugar Girl Collection. I love cute makeup, sue me.

Baviphat Sugar Girl Candy Gloss might just remind you of a gloss I reviewed many a moon ago from Japanese brand Love Clover entitled PopChu Gloss. It may be a rehash packaging wise but the formula is quite different…
