MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm 2

So you wanna know the deets on the new MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm SPF 35 eh? I’ve had it for several months now heck maybe it’s even been a year….I believe mine came from Duty Free in either Japan or Singapore, not sure which. This was around the original date when it was available within Asia only.

The tube I’m reviewing for you is from Asia but I do want to indulge in the one that has released on our shores as well just to see if the formulas are the same. I suspect they are but out of curiosity I will be buying the other version and comparing the two for any differences.

If you’re unfamiliar with BB Creams or have questions about them I do suggesting familiarizing yourself with them by clicking here.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Bronze Tint SPF 20 Review, Swatches, Photos

Too Faced Primed Poreless Bronze Tint SPF 20 1

Ok, I admit that I don’t get the point of a tinted primer, particularly one that works as a bronzer of sorts.

Too Faced now offers its Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Primer in a Bronze Tint SPF 20 version for multitasking joy all around. A face primer, a SPF, and a facial primer all in one?

Interesting, very interesting….!

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ Review, Swatches, Photos

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm 10

Hmmm word on the street is that people are pretty happy with the new Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++ that debuted at Sephora recently.

After trying the Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm BB Cream and being disappointed I was excited to try this version since many of you seemed quite pleased with it.

With BB Creams finally taking the Western market by storm I was quite hyped about testing out US formulations of a BB Cream plus add to the fact that we’d have options available that were easy to purchase and needless to say you can add to my excitement. Most folks that have never tried an Asian BB Cream will probably rave the new collection of Dr. Jart BB’s available at Sephora. It’s a given that having never tried something superior that you’ll instantly like these rather brilliantly formulated products however being a connoisseur of BB Creams I can honestly say so far these options prove very, very low calorie compared to Korean BB Creams.

Let’s take a peek!

The L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze, the brand unveiled its stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues and velvety textures enriched with softening peony extract earlier last week.

The new Healthy Glow Face Powder is a matte bronze that has a soft peony fragrance that warms up the complexion with a soft glow of the sun.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss 8

Bobbi goes bare for Summer with her new Almost Bare Collection. This a small release that concentrates on lightweight coverage (Bobbi’s new TM’s!), a bit of bronzer, and a sheer, sparkling lip.

I can’t think of a single artist who does the bare, minimal makeup as well as Bobbi Brown.

Let’s take a peek at the new, limited edition Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss included with this collection!
