Becca Mineral Powder Foundation Review

Becca Mineral Foundation 4

I’m so not a mineral makeup lover or user. I don’t care who tries to convince me but in my opinion minerals are for oily skin types or people with perfectly smooth skin. I also stay away from minerals due to Bismuth, a fairly common ingredient in mineral foundation that makes me itchy as hell. Feels like hundreds of tiny ants are crawling under my skin! Not fun!

Mind you, none of this sways me from trying to find the perfect mineral foundation. I’ll try just about anything mineral because deep down inside I have a hidden hope that someday, some where, my mineral wishes will come true.

Becca Mineral Powder Foundation made its way onto my beauty radar recently.

Avon Smooth Minerals Lip Tint 1

In the beauty world, seasons start fairly early. We are full into Fall at the moment and by the end of the month discussions on Holiday 2010 will begin.

Phew!

But, even though it’s ending soon, Summer is very much in the here and now. Avon Summer 2010 has recently launched on their website and they are about the virtues of lighter makeup and keeping cool and fresh during the warm weather.

Speaking of lighter makeup remember the Avon Smooth Minerals Lip Tint I showed you a few weeks ago? Wanna take a closer look at ‘em?

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition Review and Swatches

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition 1

I imagine that Milani HD Advanced Lip Color is the brand’s take on Dior Serum De Rouge Luminous Color Lip Treatment. Who doesn’t like a drugstore dupe right?

This is newly released and should be popping up at your local drugstore at the moment.

Is it worth the haul?

Reader’s Request: Vincent Longo Lip & Cheek Gel Stain Review and Swatches

Cheek stain is one of my makeup life’s longest wearing product. Most makeup wears off, oxidizes, and never really wears well throughout the day but you can always rely on a good cheek stain to stay put until YOU take it off. How many cosmetics do that?! Not many in my opinion!

I recently stocked up on my favorite cheek stain by Vincent Longo as there is a sale ongoing at the moment of 25% Off and a reader had requested I review the product after getting it. Strangely enough, Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Gel is my HG (holy grail) for a very long time now but I never took a second out to review it.

Dianne Brill Panties in a Bunch Mini Lip Gloss Set Review and Swatches

Dianne Brill Panties in a Bunch 22

I bet a man was the one who created the saying, “Don’t get your panties in a bunch”. Yup, definitely something a dude would say. But I actually don’t mind getting my panties in a punch particularly when they come in a box, look like bon bons, and come in pretty colors.
