Nivea Caramel Cream Kiss Lip Butter

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?).

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage CC Cream Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics CC Cream

After testing the new It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream for the past month I thought it was about time to review and swatch it for everyone.

Interestingly enough it’s actually made in Korean and contains snail secretion as one of the top ingredients so you know its going to be moisturizing for those of us with drier skin!

Take a look!

The wonderland didn’t happen…where is my damn wonderland…?!
