Sephora Be You Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Sephora Be You Lip Balm 5

Sephora Be You Lip Balm is an extension of their recently introduced Color Reveal Lip Balm. I liked Color Reveal a lot. It was cheap, it flushed my lips very nicely, and I only complained about the taste….pretty darn great for a self confessed ranter about the Sephora Makeup Collection.

So, I was pretty excited about the Be You Lip Balm but I’m not sure why they bothered changing the name. The color is called Coral Twist and they could have simply just included a new shade or added it to the Color Reveal Lip Balm line up right? But hey, I don’t express knowledge on the mysteries of makeup marketing.

Let’s take a look and see if Be You Lip Balm is as great as Color Reveal.

Review & Swatches Facefront Cosmetics Red Hot Eyeshadow: A MAC Firepot Dupe If Ever I Did See One!

Facefront Cosmetics Red Hot 1

Uh oh…

More orange-y goodness coming your way.

MAC introduced Firepot to my life a few Summer’s ago. I cherish that eyeshadow like it’s my love child with BenoĆ®t Magimel.

Facefront Cosmetics Red Hot is actually even more intense, more fiery than MAC Firepot.

How is it possible?!

NP Set Brightening Pre-Foundation Primer Review & Swatches

NP Set Brightening Pre Foundation Primer 1

I always get so many questions about ways to brighten, whiten, or lighten skin. I do so feel like Queen Know It All when it comes to the topic as I’m typically one for overindulging in Asian whitening solutions.

Not everyone wants permanent results though, some folks just want a way to ease dullness or just a little brightening up. My suggestion is ALWAYS the same for this, a lilac base. They aren’t too common here in the US but primers, cream bases, etc…all lilac based in color, are fairly popular in the Asian market. It’s a temporary solution to ease dullness and to get skin looking whiter and brighter.

Surprisingly, NP Set released a Brightening Pre-Foundation Primer that can be purchased at Target.

Do have a look!
