Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream Review & Swatches

Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care Refresh Cream 001

I don’t technically have allergies but for some reason or another I can’t stop sneezing this year and no, it isn’t a cold. My nose is raw, flaky, dry, and just generally gross. And it’s terribly sore too! Ouch!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk Review & Swatches

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk 1

Would you like a little NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with your eyeshadows and cookies?

This little gem has been raved the makeup blog over but I’ve never indulged personally until recently. Makeup junkies rave it for its ability to enhance the shade of shadows, lock shadows in place while acting as a primer, and just generally act as a perfect base for loose pigments and minerals.

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick Stain Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Stain Swatches 3

Hey, wait, why did I always think that the It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Stain was a clear balm sort of formula?

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick is a balm, a gloss, and a stain all in one.

Take a look!

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 2

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.

Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.

Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.
