L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks Nude Ingenue Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks 1

L’Oreal is set to launch Colour Riche Caresse Sticks shortly here in the US. These hit the UK market with raving success a few short months ago and I was delighted that we’d be seeing them so early. Typically anything released in Britain gets to our side of the pond within a season or two but lately product launches are very quick to come on over and for that I’m extra grateful.

Although L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks are rumored to arrive here in June I already have a shade that I picked up online.

I blame Revlon Lip Butters for the hype stirring up for the launch of Caresse Sticks. I think a ton of people thought the Revlon Lip Butters were a smashing success, myself included, so anything in the realms of this type of product get makeup lovers quite excited.

Here’s a brief review of L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks but keep in mind that I’ll be doing a follow up review when they officially launch here in the US as I’d like to try a few more shades before having my final word on these.

Soap & Glory Cheekmate Cheek & Lip Stain Review & Swatches

Soap Glory Cheekmate Cheek Lip Stain 001

Soap & Glory Cheekmate is a cheek and lipstain the brand introduced a few months ago. Soap & Glory roamed deeper into the cosmetic world with this release as they never really did color cosmetics.

I’m a little sad we haven’t yet seen the cosmetic line here in the US but I look forward to the release.

Let’s take a look!

Cheek stain lovers will want a look at this one.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me 001

Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.

I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.

I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.

Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.

L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream Review & Swatches

LOreal Nude Magique BB Cream 13


L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
launched a few short months ago in the UK. I purchased mine from England within weeks because I was so terribly curious about a drugstore BB Cream. Since Garnier was one of the only drugstore BB Creams within the US at the time of this release I was terribly curious how brands like Maybelline, L’Oreal, etc….would do with the formula.

Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.

Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.

Stila On the Road Palette Review & Swatches

Stila On the Road Palette 6

As you know, I recently blogged about the new Stila Travel Girl Palettes for Summer 2012. There are five available at the moment but knowing Stila’s track record they’ll probably do an exclusive here or there with Macy’s, Sephora, etc….

The style of palette isn’t actually new since Nordstrom first introduced their exclusive version several weeks ago entitled On The Road. This version is a collaboration between Nordsom BP (BP is a collection created by Nordie’s for teens/young women) and Stila. Stila has released a few BP collaborated palettes prior to this so I was kinda delighted by On the Road since it was a new and different variation from the typical budget palettes Stila has put out the last two years or so.

However, I think the uniqueness and specialness has worn off for me now that I know there will be five (or more) now.

Here’s my thoughts on the Stila + BP On the Road Palette, take the jump for the deets.
