Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 is finally available in North America! Yay! It recently launched at Sephora and hopefully counters will soon it soon as well.
I purchased both shades to swatch and review on Musings but haven’t had a chance to test them out yet but here are swatches for both Shade 1 and Shade 2 to whet your appetite and possibly help you decide the best shade for your skin tone.
Why, oh, why did I discover the Balm’s new Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream at the end of Summer? I could have used you all Summer long to keep my skin hydrated with your lovely lightweight formula and to cool it off thanks to the refreshing burst of peppermint in the mix.
But we’ll be friends until the end right? Or at least until it gets cold out and I can’t use you anymore because my dry skin needs something heavier to keep it from acting all kinds of crazy.
Time Balm Peppermint Hydrating Face Cream is the balm…it’s the balm dot com! Loves it.
Hard Candy Stay in the Line Eyeliner is part of the new Hard Candy Fall 2011 Collection. These mechanical eyeliners are available in six shades for $5 each and include a smudger sponge.
At this price, you’ll want to own them all!
As you know from my prior reviews, geoGirl is actually turning out quite alright. The line will be sold at Walmart this Fall and is actually made for a younger market (they are targeting 8 to 12 year olds) but some of you have already tried it out yourself and are enjoying it and I know I’ve tested a few products out and was pretty surprised that a line marketed for little girl’s is actually quite nice.
I was fiddling around with geoGirl F2F Face 2 Face Moisture Tint SPF 15 and I gotta say, again, I like it. It’s on par with any higher end tinted moisturizer you already own plus it doesn’t have parabens. Sadly, I was sent a way deeper shade so I couldn’t get a perfect feel for the product but my testing did lead me to believe this could be a win.
Check it out and if you tried it do add your two cents in!
Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 a necessary evil in my SPF life. If I can, I will avoid milky-type SPF products as I simply don’t like that formula however I will admit some of them I do embrace because they offer superior protection.
That’s the case with Anessa.
Anessa is a popular range of SPF products and is sub-brand of Shiseido which is available in Japan and a few select Asian countries. It’s terribly crummy that the only Shiseido we really experience here in the US is what we found at our high end counter as Shiseido offers a very WIDE array of various products in Asian countries.
Let’s take a look at Anessa and see what it’s such a popular SPF product in Asia.
