Clio Ok! Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Clio Ok Eyeshadow 3

Clio is a brand of cosmetics in Korea. The brand has some really great makeup products and veers away from the cutesy aspect of makeup that we sometimes see from other Asian brands.

Ok! Eyeshadow will probably remind you of Victora’s Secret Beauty Rush Luminous Shadow from days of old.

Let’s take a peek!

MAC Surf Baby SkinSheen Bronzer Stick Review, Swatches, Photos

MAC Surf Baby SkinSheen Bronzer Stick 1

Ahh the MAC Surf Baby SkinSheen Bronzer Sticks, like mud for your face!

Sorry…but these bad boys are way pigmented and if you’re not careful you’ll be looking all kinds like you were outside playing in the mud on a rainy day.

For shame!

That dirty look could prove sexy to some but on my fuller face it doesn’t quite sit right.

Let’s take a peep!

Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Smashbox FAQs 7 Piece Color Collection 1

Let it be known I was every so relieved after viewing the QVC Presentation Video that I wasn’t crazy about the overall finish I got with the Smashbox FAQ’s 7 Piece Color Collection.

I recently hauled this on Auto Delivery from QVC because it was a stupendous deal. After receiving it I was in awe over the promo model’s overall look and was every so eager to try it out.

FAIL!

I totally couldn’t master the look but after seeing the video on QVC I realized the two looks are completely and utterly different and the one on QVC looks more like what I came out with than what was included in the how to guide in the set.

Phew! It’s always nice to know I’m NOT going crazy because believe me I feel on the brink of it daily.

Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion Review

Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion 4

I tried out the new Avon Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion I told you about last week. This is one of two new sunscreens available from Avon (the other is a body version) that’s formulated with RepariShield which dramatically reduces the look of wrinkles and discolorations while protecting your skin from the sun with an SPF 45.

The high SPF value alone was one reason I wanted to try it out and of course the rather affordable $24 price tag for 2.6 oz as higher end SPF comes with a far bigger price tag.

Here’s my thoughts!
