Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher Review & Swatches

Etude House Lock n Summer Cushion Blushers

Cushion blush (and foundation) are on the rise in Asia and the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is my first experience with cushion blush!

The Etude House Lock ‘n Summer 2014 Collection includes two new Cushion Blusher shade that I recently purchased. I’ve had plenty of good times with cushion foundation and bb cream but cushion blush is really a new experience for me. I noticed that a few brands in Korea are starting to introduce cushion blush so by Fall I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of it from a variety of Asian brands! I suspect the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is here to stay as they’ll likely repackage and re-release it at some point to the permanent Etude House Collection. So if you don’t haul it now, no worries it’ll likely be available for a while.

But unfortunately my review is about to change your mind about wanting to haul it!

NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer Review & Swatches

NYX Proof It Waterproof Primer

NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer ($7) is NYX’s newest eyeshadow primer for Fall 2014 that promises not only to intensify shadows but also to waterproof them.

Granted, I didn’t nor will I attempt to swim in eyeshadow so we’ll just have to test this one against the warmer weather eh? It’s probably great if you have oily lids as that’s where the “waterproof” benefits will kick in!

Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette 1

Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is one of several upcoming eyeshadow palettes that Maybelline is releasing. The Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is of course, the first palette for Fall 2014 and more are being introduced, from my understanding, into 2015 (including a possible color one).

I think what makes the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette unique is it isn’t something that’s been done before by Maybelline or any drugstore brands in the past. Ok, granted, NYX has a ton of eyeshadow palettes but many don’t make it to the drugstore. A twelve eyeshadow pan palette from a drugstore brand is pretty amazing and different and new and fresh and exciting. Plus with all the hype that surrounds the Urban Decay Naked Palette it’s no wonder we see so many dupes pop up like the Revealed 1 and Revealed 2 Palette so it was only a matter of that that the drugstore brands finally caught onto the trend.

So I’m very happy and excited to talk to you today about the new Maybelline the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette that released with the Dare to Go Nude Fall 2014 Collection which includes not 1, not 2, not 3, not even 6, but 12 Eyeshadows!
