Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter Review & Swatches

Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter

Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter is a foaming primer with an SPF 30. This foaming facial primer supposedly blurs the appearance of large pores while evening out skin tone and prepping skin for makeup while protecting it from the sun.

Foaming primers like this are a fairly common offering that a variety of Asian brands offer. I’ve tried literally hundreds and most offer the same benefits.

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm (Summer 2013) Review & Swatches

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms Summer 2013

I’m absolutely thrilled that Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm is back in four new limited edition shades for Summer 2013. Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm made an original appearance in Europe but they took nearly two years to hit our counters for Summer 2012.

I’m happy to have these back this year. Fact of the matter is they are just too cool for school. Especially since this year they come in a translucent base of emerald green and turquoise. You’ll just want to sit around and stare at them rather than apply them to your lips!

Dior Jelly Lip Pen Review & Swatches

Dior Jelly Lip Pen

Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.

Excited much?

I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.

How does Dior’s stand against them?

Take a look!

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream Review

Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43 is one of two new BB Cream formulas that Missha recently introduced in Korea. This isn’t yet available here in the US but I imagine it’ll shortly become available via Missha’s online shop.

There’s actually a white color adjusting formula of this that’s dubbed BB Cream which I am curious to try out but I went the safer route and got the already beige shade.

Let’s take a look!
