Bare Minerals Loud & Clear Lip Sheer Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Loud Clear Lip Sheer Spring 2013

As you know Bare Minerals launched three Loud & Clear Lip Sheers with their new Remix Collection for Spring 2013. Loud & Clear Lip Sheer is a sweet little tinted lip balm that quite reminds me of one my favorite vintage products from Bare Minerals, the Lip Bud.

Unsure how many folks remember the Lip Bud but it was very similiar to the Loud & Clear Lip Sheers and I stock piled them all crazy-like and still have one lonely one left. Needless to say the introduction of these new Lip Sheers was met with much excitement by yours truly.

Burt’s Bees Lip Shine Review & Swatches

Burts Bees Lip Shine

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine is a new round of glossy, shiny lipgloss available in five shades for $7 each. I’ve never technically tried any of Burt’s other gloss products so I have nothing to compare this too sadly.

I will say it’s an excellent launching pad for me as I know I’ll be going back for more shades and now I want to try their other lipgloss products as well because if they are half as good as this Lip Shine you can dub me a happy Muse.

Physcians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer Review & Swatches

Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer is a newly launched concealer for Spring 2013 in the new Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Collection.

Physcians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm Concealer 17

I think it’s great seeing Physicians Formula tackle the BB Cream realms because they’ve always offered VERY pigmented options in terms of foundation and concealer products. I think pigment is definitely an issue that American BB Creams are having a hard time tackling as many of the BB Creams launched here on our shores are very sheer.

Although I’m not fond of the over use of the words “BB Cream” I can’t deny that Korea does have its fair share of “BB” in product titles as well even though they aren’t BB Creams. So this Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Concealer, I guess I can forgive the term being so loosely used.

Physicians Formula calls it the 1st ever blemish balm concealer to aid in concealing dark circles, puffiness, imperfections, blemishes, redness, and more.

Does it?

L’Oreal Magic Decrease Review & Swatches

LOreal Magic Decrease Primer

L’Oreal Magic Decrease is a new eyeshadow primer released for Spring 2013. You should be able to find this little guy tucked right into the new Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad displays.

Now I mentioned earlier when I did another post on this that L’Oreal did indeed have a primer of sorts like this in the past however, I never actually tried that base so I can’t compare Magic Decrease to it sadly.

Here are my thoughts on Magic Decrease.

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow Review & Swatches

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow 2

Neotrogena recently introduced their new Crease Proof Eye Shadow Sticks ($7.79 at Harmons) for Spring 2013. These are available in six shade selections and promise an all day wear thanks to a built in primer that prevents creasing or fading.

I typically like cream eyeshadow but I’m not really a fan of it in a chubby stick or pencil as in many cases this type of packaging seems to come along with a denser less than creamy eyeshadow. But there are any number of cream eyeshadow pencils that are fairly great out there.

Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow sounded like a great concept for a quick eye look on the good for me and hey, if it had a built in primer all the better one less step in my rather long beauty regime in the AM.

Take a look!
