Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics Review & Swatches

Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics Spring 2013

Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics ($16) is a new gorgeous highlighter launched with the Mark Marrakesh Collection. At a glance I thought this shimmering powder might work as a blush as there is a gorgeous coral buried in the design….

Blush and highlighter?

Did it work?

Mally Instant Erase Concealer Review & Swatches

Mally Instant Erase Concealer

Mally Beauty Instant Erase Concealer recently launched on QVC with a blending brush. I admit, the blending brush, it kinda sold me. Also the fact that I’m a huge concealer h0r! I owned and used Mally’s Cancellation Concealer Set for a very long time and it was my HG (holy grail) for literally ages thus that love led me to my purchase of Instant Erase Concealer recently.

If Instant Erase is as great as her Cancellation Concealer I was surely in for a treat!

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colors

It’s almost Summer! Time for some sheer, lightweight lipsticks me thinks. Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color ($25) is a newly launched range of what Bobbi calls mistake proof no mirror lipstick. I love you Bobbi but girl, me, applying lipstick of any kind without a mirror….oooo it’s such a mess. I don’t have Molly’s talents Bobbi.

Believe me I’ve tried application without a mirror and typically it ends up on my cheek, my nose, anywhere but my lips.

But…I am all about sheer, subtle lightweight lippies for Summer so your new Sheer Lip Color probably has my heart.

Take a look!

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream1

I think part of the irony of Almay Smart Shade CC Cream is the fact that the Almay Smart Shade Foundation is more of a CC Cream than this is.

At the moment CC Creams are pretty popular in Korea and we’re seeing some of that in the Western market. Most of these CC Creams in Asia are white, self adjusting formulas with lightweight textures. Remind you of anything? Almay’s Smart Shade Foundation is actually white and self adjusting….

I find it funny that their CC Cream actually doesn’t go the self adjusting root. It’s unusual that their original, old formulated foundation is more a CC Cream than a new product they just launched.

Oddness!
