L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation Review, Swatches, Photos

They tell me imitation is the highest form of flattery. Perhaps Maybelline Dream Mousse is feeling all kinds of flattered that L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation is looking all kinds of similar.

L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation just recently launched and should be at your local drugstores. It’s a whipped souffle-like foundation much like Dream Mousse. Don’t quote me, I’m not an expert, but this is probably only the second whipped foundation within the US market. I can’t honestly think of another available here in the US.

Now I like whipped foundations ALOT particularly Bourjous’ version, damn that stuff is amazing. However, I’ve had my ups and downs with Dream Mousse and normally stick to using it in the Summer when I want lighter coverage.

I was all about trying this new version from L’Oreal and was quite curious how it would stand up against other formulas I’ve tried in the “whipped” realm.

Baviphat Peach Magic Lip Tint Review, Photos

Baviphat Peach Magic Lip Tint 3

Baviphat is a Korean brand that has a bit of a Benefit vibe due. Packaging features retro images of girls and it kinda gives me a Benefit-like feel for some reason.

Recently the brand became available in Malaysia and the lovely Sue from My Women Stuff sent me over a few items to try out

I’ve been obsessed with getting my hands on some of the offerings from the brand for a while but I had a dickens of a time trying to get their site to load so I can browse the selection.

I thought I’d start off my dive into Baviphat with their Peach Magic Lip Tint.

Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection 2

I gotta admit that I thought the Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection was an ickle boring but part of it’s appeal was 1. it’s packaging and 2. its auto delivery status on QVC.

Basically Bare Escentuals packaged this up on an auto delivery which offered new seasonal colors every few months. Fabulous gift in my humblest which is why I ordered some as just that but I couldn’t go without getting one for myself because they came in a hat box. Gush! Totally slayed me. Couldn’t resist that kinda packaging. I know, I know I shouldn’t give into the packaging demons but I couldn’t resist plus hey it was a mere $36 dollars for several full size BE products. Not a bad deal all around.

But the colors…well they are a bit meh but wait until you see them in action!
