Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Swatches

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Swatches 1

I’m the happy owner of a few Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes.

Many of you already tried them but I just got a chance to test them out yesterday, actually, I’m still in the midst of testing them out at the moment. Quite a few folks mentioned they were sheer and very subtle, true that….so far I’m have issues getting some of the lighter shades to show up on my skin. But the texture is rather awesome, I like the springy clay-like action of it! The texture kinda reminds me of a lighter version of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow.

Jump ahead for a few swatches!

Needless to say I’m skeptical!

Let’s see how the testing went.

Buxom True Hue Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Buxom True Hue Blush 13

Gotta say I really like what Bare Escentuals has done with the Buxom line. It’s kinda a little brand all its own isn’t it? Many of the offerings are quite delightful as well. I think of it as BE’s younger, hipper little sister.

I can’t say how excited I was about the launch of Buxom True Hue Blush. These are a new blush launching in February that will be available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com in 8 shades.

I gave you a little sneak peek of swatches a week or so ago and after some testing here’s my review.

Take a look!

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup Review, Swatches, Photos

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi Benefit Skin Care Makeup BB Cream 1

BB Creams 2.0, as I like to refer them, are on the scene for Spring. We saw a bit of the BB Cream trend hit the market several months ago here in the US but now that Spring is upcoming we are seeing more and more brands releasing their version of the popular Korean foundation product.

Clueless about BB Creams? Do check out my posts here and here to get you up to speed on what exactly a BB Cream is, what it does, and how it differs from a tinted moisturizer, etc..

So far, BB Creams in the US aren’t quite up to the speed of Korean ones in my opinion particularly in terms of coverage as they seem to lean more towards being a tinted moisturizer here in the US. How they got translated to such a formula is beyond me but that be the case in my experience thus far. I think I like Clinique’s version best to date from the US releases which seemed to offer the most coverage and the most natural.

As you know Too Faced recently introduced their own BB Cream to the scene with their Spring 2012 Collection and I immediately went about getting my hands on one.

Here’s my thoughts!
