Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss

I’ve been on a Mary Kat kick lately so I purchased one of the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Fancy Nancy to try out. Those damn True Dimensions Lipsticks changed my mind about Mary Kay and made me into a believer so now I’m on a mission to try everything lip related from the brand.

My journey starts with the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss ($14) if this stuff is anywhere as good as the True Dimensions Lipstick I’m in for a treat.

MAC Calypso Beat Creamsheen Glass Review & Swatches

MAC Creamsheen Glass Calypso Beat

The MAC Tropical Taboo Collection includes four, limited edition shades of Creamsheen Glass in limited edition shades that are both new and repromoted colors.

I only actually tried one which was Calypso Beat. I’m always on the fence about the Creamsheen Glass formula. Sometimes I adore it and other times when I run across shades like Calypso Beat I’m kinda meh about it.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow

Ahh you might remember the Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow from earlier this Spring which launched in Japan. These new single eyeshadows from Japanese brand Lavshuca are a step outside the normal palettes that Lavshuca traditionally releases.

The really unique thing is the fact they come in both matte and shimmer shades. Matte drugstore eyeshadow isn’t terribly common from brands like Lavshuca. I’m not a fan of matte finish myself but the idea of Lavshuca doing matte shades was intriguing.

In the end, I ended up with the sparkly shades hehe…! But I definitely think it’s a fresh step in a new direction for Japanese brands to embrace more matte shades of eyeshadow.

Let’s take a look!

Missha Pure Complexion Coordinating BB Cream

Guess what? Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Creams are now available in the US!

You might recall that I reviewed the Flawless Complexion in a recent review. Today I thought I’d concentrate on the Pure Complexion BB Cream which honestly, is more of a CC Cream than a BB one.

Take a look!

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Review & Swatches

MAC GreenLuxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palettes ($40) are a new creation from the brand that recently launched for Summer 2013. These shadow palettes contain five strips of eyeshadow color in graduating shades of color.

I was deeply impressed with all four of the palettes I tried and would liken them to Japanese Eyeshadow in terms of texture. If you’re a fond fan of Japanese brands like KATE or Majolica Majorca I’m positive you’re going to adore these.

Take a look!
