Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation ($7) is a new Invisible Camouflage Foundation launching with the Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Collection that will be available in 8 permanent shade selections.

Hi, I’m the Muse, I’m a foundation and concealer snob. If there is one thing in the makeup world I believe in splurging on it would be 1. foundation and 2. concealer. I am under the impression that I cannot for the life of me not only find a color match from drugstore foundations or concealers but also find a formula I actually LIKE using. Some are too heavy, some too cakey, others are orange, too beige…it’s just a sea of foundations that just do not work for me. Rarely am I able to actually find a foundation product at the drugstore that I’m happy with! Likewise for concealer (although the drugstore concealer world has been making some huge strides lately)!

I present you with Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation and challenge you to buy it and use it. And proceed to love it.

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip balm

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($16) eight shade selection of tinted lip balms that give a flush of color to lips with a hint of shine and hydration. I’m a lover of Bare Minerals Loud & Clear Lip Sheers so when I saw the new Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balms I was quite excited. Loud & Sheer’s formula is a lot less pigmented with a moist, shiny natural hint of color! I love them but I have to admit Pop of Passion does it even better.

Take a look!

Dior My Lady Diorblush Glowing Color Blush Palette (007) Review & Swatches

Dior My Lady Diorblush 007

The Dior My Lady Diorblush Glowing Color Blush Palette 007 ($65) is a Nordstrom Exclusive, limited edition blush that launched for Spring 2015 recently at Nordstrom.com.

Last year, two Dior my Lady Blush Palettes launched that I was unable to get because they sold out rather quickly! Unfortunately, this new shade also sold out rather fast so you might wish to call your local Nordstrom and have them check their Dior counters to see if they have in stock and available.

I’m a rather big fan of the old Dior Harmonie de Blush that launched in 2009 and for some reason or another the My Lady Diorblush quite reminds me of it so I was happy to get my paws on this palette.

Let’s take a look!

Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Review & Swatches

Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss

Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss was released for Winter 2014 in 7 shade selections within Japan. These are marketed as a lipgloss that has a serum-like texture which contains moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

I’m actually not a Integrate fan, it’s one of Shiseido sub brands out of Japan that I like least of all. However, in recent years they have been introducing some really great products so I’m always looking out to see what they will introduce next.

When the Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss launched I knew it would be an instant like for me! And I was right!

Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

wet n wild thrift store chic

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99) is one of five, limited edition Wet n Wild Silver Lake Spring 2015 Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes that recently launched at drugstores.

I have a love hate relationship with Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes. The first round were amazing and to this day I cherish them but there have been many variations since that time and they can prove hit or miss but none the less I continue hauling them because when you do get a hit, well, it’s a cheap kinda thrill that makes your makeup day!

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette is one of those cheap thrills!
