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!

Nature Republic Super Origin CC Cream

Nature Republic has two new Super Origin CC Cream (Complete Control Cream) formulas available in Korea at the moment. There’s a tinted version as well as a brightening version. I do suggest you go into a purchase for the tinted version as the brightening one is more of a primer versus an actual CC Cream.

Let’s take a look!

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss Spring 2013

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lipgloss ($18) is an absolute must have! You NEED it.

It’s been a while since I’ve been super impressed by a lipgloss but I have to say Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss pretty much covers all aspects of what I look for and love in a gloss formula. High shine, pigmented, easy to apply, comfortably to wear, lightweight…they are just perfect all around.

PLEASE try these.
