Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer Review, Swatches, Photos

Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer 003

At a 1.5 oz size and $42 my tinted moisturizer of choice from Laura Mercier is pretty costly. Better deal?

The new Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer at 1.7 oz, $38, and oh by the way an SPF 30 instead of Laura’s 20.

Score!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipgloss 007

For Spring 2011 Rimmel has introduced an extension to its Moisture Renew Lipstick in the form of a Moisture Renew Lipgloss.

I’m not a fan of the lipstick sadly however those that are might find that the gloss is a good one to follow up with when using the lipstick however it does hold its own in the pigment department for wearing by itself if you so please.

I kinda have a love hate relationship with it at the moment after trying it out.

Here are my thoughts!

Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation Review, Swatches, Photos

Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation 7

I do think the idea of “color” matching foundation formulas sounds cool but end up making us laugh a little. Foundation that magically turns into our perfect shade? Mmm always skeptical when it comes to these product eh? Almay does one as does a few other companies. In some cases they can work if they actually match your skin tone however in most cases, let’s be honest, they prob aren’t that perfect match we are seeking. Considering blushes and lipsticks also embrace this technology and fail at it, is it really any wonder that foundations can’t cut it either?

Josie Maran Matchmaker Argan Serum Foundation is the newest product to embrace this “technology” with a breakthrough color match technology that supposedly reads and instantly adjusts to match to your skin tone for your own unique shade of foundation!

Does it work?

Stila Dramatic Eye Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

I purchased the Stila Dramatic Eye Palette during the Stila Online Warehouse several weeks ago. Sadly, it’s now gone from the site however I have a funny feeling during their next sale it’ll pop up again however if you simply can’t wait to try it after my review I do suggest E-bay as I’ve seen a few valid sellers that have it available for as little as $10!

Stila Dramatic Eye Palette 1

The Dramatic Eye Palette is pretty much the same design as the $10 IT Girl Palette released a few months ago. It contains three shadows and the set I purchase also included a brush and eyeliner pencil. I can’t recall what I paid for the entire set but it was in the realms of $14 I think!?

Here’s a brief review and swatches if and when it pops back up at Stila.
