Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ recently launched in Japan so I decided to skip out on my normal Allie SPF and try this instead.

I don’t believe Shiseido has every released a gel sunscreen prior to this in the Anessa Collection. Don’t quote me but they have always had liquid sunscreens as I recall. From my understanding the gel line will be available for a limited time but again don’t quote me on that.

Let’s take a look!

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher Review & Swatches

Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher 7

Unfortunately for me Innisfree Mineral Rose Marbling Blusher is all about the pretty. This pretty little rose shaped blush is gorgeous to look at but the performance of it left something to be desired.

I never learn with this marble blushes almost ALL of the ones I own from a variety of Korea brands are typically too frosty to really act as a blush. Perhaps a highlighter? But the glow they produce is just too overkill for me.

Take a peek!

Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint Review & Swatches

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze Glow Matte Bronzer Cheek Tint

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint is a late Summer 2013 release following on the heels of Tarte’s Aqualillies Summer 2013 Collection. Park Ave Princess is such a popular Tarte product that makes an appearance everywhere so I found it interesting this is a reinvention of the formula.

You’ll recognize the format with Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint as the Maracuja Blush & Glow in a similar style packaging. But in this case, I feel like you’ll make more use of the gel bronzer here where as I found it challenging to get through the highlighter in the Blush & Glow.

Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream Review & Swatches

Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream

Unfortunately Ren Satin Perfection BB Cream Sunscreen ($38), like most US brands, doesn’t quite get the idea of a BB Cream down correctly when compared to Asian brands. But they might just have something special on their hands here as the formula is positively delightful and quite silicone-free as well!

Let’s take a peek!
