KATE’s new nifty Brightening Makeup Base for Cover might be something to pick up if you suffer from duller skin and have a need for a brighter appearance.
This creamy yellow base can be used to prep with prior to foundation application and brightens up skin while easing dullness.

Lavshuca recently introduced a range of eyeshadow singles entitled Candy Pop. Along with this release Lavshuca Eye Base Primer makes an appearance in two different shades (pink and beige) which I decided I might as well try out.
I really don’t need another base at the moment but the cute pink tin was partially responsible for my spontaneous purchase, come on, cut me a break, you know I can’t resist cute packaging.
If you already own KATE Eyeshadow Base Primer you probably don’t need the Lavshuca Eye Base however, I will say that it actually seemed to perform a little better than the KATE formula. Of course, I might be just imaging that as KATE and Lavshuca are sister brands created by the same parent company, Kanebo.

Mark is right on trend with their new Color Me In Lip Crayons. Chubby lip pencils have gotten a big push for Spring/Summer and the new Mark Color Me In Lip Crayon joins the ranks in three shades.
I think Mark loses a few points as each of these are $12. Ouch. I think of Mark as a lower end brand that should have prices competitive with the drugstore or perhaps a smidge higher. Considering Revlon, Covergirl, and a slew of other drugstore brands have their own version of these tinted lip crayons at a far lower price (especially during a sale), Mark cuts themselves out of the equation slightly as you might second guess splurging.
Price doesn’t account for quality. If they are amazing that would definitely make me lean towards dishing out that twelve bucks faster.
During out last discussion about the new Nivea Lip Butter we had a house divided here in fair Verona (or Musings of Muse whatever floats your boat, it’s almost time for Shakespeare in the Park, cut me a break alright?).
No seriously, I got a ton of mixed impressions about these lip butters. Some folks loved ‘em, some folks hated ‘em, some folks thought they were over hyped…after trying them I understand ALL of your feelings.
How’d I feel about them in the end?
Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm is a newly launched hybrid formula that has the pigment and shine of a gloss but the texture and moisturizing properties of a lip balm.
I dunno how I feel about a hybrid gloss slash balm. I mean I’m happy enough with my lip balm being a lip balm and my gloss being a gloss. Do the two products really need a marriage?
Let’s find out.
