Essence Cosmetics: Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss Review and Swatches

I was thinking to myself today…dontcha just love when I go off on these tangents? Like, whenever something new launches I end up hauling a buncha rubbish from the release and proceed to slam you with reviews on it! Ha! Sorries!

Here I go again….

This time I’m all about discovering and playing around with Essence Cosmetics which recently launched at Ulta.

Silicon-Free Primer: Korres Quercetin & Oak Age Reversing Primer Review

I had to go google quercetin recently. I had no idea what it was. Turns out quercetin is found in apples and red onions and is a powerful natural anti-oxidant.

You know why that’s good? Because my skin seems to really dig on anything that has anti-oxidants in it lately. I’m using this new moisturizer that’s packed with anti-oxidants and my skin fairly glows thanks to it.


Most important news of all is that Korres has a brand new primer out that’s packed full of quercetin.

Beauty on a Budget: Jesse’s Girl Stardust Powder Eye Shadow Review and Swatches

I just want you to all know that I still think that chick from the Jesse’s Girl video is a nutter. Seriously? She wants to be Jesse’s Girl when she could be Rick’s girl? I’d totally choose Rick for the record. Jesse isn’t even cute with that floppy hair he has going on! WTH!? That girl is loco I tell you!

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

No worries Rick, you don’t need Jesse’s Girl you can have me!

Of course this is circa 1980′s as Rick Springfield the new millennium is not pretty. Sometimes botox does not do a body good.

Speaking of Jesse’s Girl….

Beauty on a Budget: Essence Magic Design Mascara Review

I’m ever so tempted to call it quits and just say I’m not feeling the love for Essence Magic Design Mascara but I can’t deny for the price it works well enough.

Pixi Lash Booster Mascara Review

I always fascinated when reader’s request a review of a lighter mascara. It seems the whole world wants a mascara that has a light formula, something that won’t weight lashes down but still manages to achieve great results.

In my experience a lighter formula normally translates as an epic fail.

Jump ahead for a little something that’s lighter and that works a treat at leaving lashes natural yet full!
