Pixi joins the realms of tinted lip balm pencils with their new Tinted Brilliance.
I guess we’ll see more of these chubby pencils as the Summer progresses as they are really trending at the moment with Clinique releasing new shades of their pencil, Revlon having their new Stain Balms, and Tarte releasing a new Tangerine shade for Spring/Summer 2012.
Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm actually had a Spring 2012 launch at Target and Target.com however I hadn’t tried them when they originally released so I was quite happy to give one a whirl recently.
Let’s have a look!
I used to buy Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliners a hundred or so years ago when I was a wee little Muse. They sucked back than even though it seems like the entire world gives them a hearty “hey, you must buy these!”
Having not tried them in years and being every so tempted by the shades I ended up picking up a few shades of the Avon Glow Eyeliner aka these are Glimmersticks with a fancy Summer name.
Formula hasn’t changed much….
Fairest of them all? Get even fairer with the Benefit Rare Beauty Snow White & the Huntsman Makeup Kit that contains essentials for creating Snow White’s signature look.
I have a drawer (or maybe two) where I toss bags that come with makeup sets or I get as gifts with purchases. My collection is vast…!
Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream is another of my top BB Creams. I’m trying to review BB Creams that get a lot of airtime in my stash and not so much ones that sit around unused and unloved.
This isn’t the best BB Cream in the world mine you but it is one I tend to reach for a lot. It has a fairly large cult following with some folks absolutely adoring it and others not really feeling the love.
Of course, as I mentioned before, BB Creams are a super personal experience. You have to try a ton to find your perfect formula and shade.
Let’s take a peek at the Aloe Sun one and see what’s so great about it.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain has recently launched in drugstores in 12 shades for around $6.79 each (that’s what I paid at Harmons).
These are very exciting release as they are a chubby lip balm pencil that resembles Clinique’s popular Chubby Stick and Tarte’s Lip Surgence at friendly price tag.
The variety of colors, budget price tag, and lighter, balmy formula will prove an ideal pick for Summer beauty budget’ors out there but are they as great as Clinique and Tarte?
Let’s take a look and find out.
Well, sometimes matte finishes surprise me and the new Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 is most defiantly a surprise. Surprise I like it, a lot.
