Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer Spring 2013

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen…PHEW what a mouthful! Say it fast three times. Olay covers all bases here, BB Cream, Tinted Moisturizer…so they market it as both which automatically sets off warning bells in my head.

BB Cream is NOT a tinted moisturizer. The US has not caught on to this fact as of yet and has gone ahead and decided that marketing BB Creams as a tinted moisturizer is A SUPER idea….and everyone should be happy about it.

Ok, I won’t rant anymore.

But facts is facts combing BB Cream and Tinted Moisturizer into the name is confusing for consumers. If you’ve never tried BB Cream before and proceed to purchase Olay Fresh Effects you’ll automatically assume this is what a BB Cream is and that’s just not what this is.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Review & Swatches

Too Faced Lip Injection

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme gets a make over for Spring 2013. As a self confessed lover of lip plumpers I can’t recall trying or owning the original Lip Injection or Lip Injection Extreme so I can’t say how this compares to the old formula.

Hmmm…sadness that I never tried it.

If you’re sensitive be careful with this one as it comes across rather pleasant at first but it has a nice little bite that will give the illusion of fuller lips!

Wet n Wild Cover All Pressed Powder Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild CoverAll Pressed Powder

Do grab yourself some Wet n Wild Cover All Pressed Powder. It’s cheap, it provides excellent coverage, and oh yeah, it’s cheap. Did I mentioned that already?

I got it at Harmons for $2.59 cents! It was actually $3.59 I believe but they had an instant $1 off coupon so it came to a mere $2.59. It’ll work a treat with the new Wet n Wild Cover All Foundation as well should you wish to use the two together.

Chanel Captivante Rouge Allure Review & Swatches

Chanel Lipsticks Spring 2013

La Favorite, Captivante, Precieuse

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in Captivante is, well, it’s exactly that, captivating. This was released with the Chanel Spring 2013 Makeup Collection and at a glance I wasn’t particularly wow’ed by the shade.

But suddenly all these comments starting floating around me, people, strangers, asking me “What is that on your lips?” and even many of you commented and asked what I was wearing on a certain FOTD that I did and it just happened to be Captivante.

A lip color that gets this much attention must be special yes?
