MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Lipstick Review & Swatches

I avoid MAC Cremesheen Lipsticks like the plague but the shade Peach Blossom passed across my desk from the MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Collection and it was instant love.

It quite reminds me of my very favorite shade of lipstick from Urban Decay, Naked.

As you know the MAC By Request Collection includes three shades of limited edition Lipglass that were voted back by fans (on Facebook).

These shades I can definately get on board with. I was a little meh on the eye shadows from the collection but I am feeling the love for the Lipglasses.

Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette Review & Swatches

The new Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette ($45) was inspired by brand founder and creative director Dany San’z love of Tango dancing. My sophistication level when it comes to Tango dancing is limited to the Tango scene in True Lies, anything else could result in me tripping and falling on my butt.

Dany learned to Tango at age three and has been a long time fan. Recently Dany was in Argentina doing the make up for “Tango Argentina” a high profile showcase organized by the city of Buenos Aires that featured some of the country’s most famous dancers.

Upon arriving home the idea for the Black Tango Palette was born.

The palette features four shades of Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Eyeshadows in rich shades of black accented with jewel tones such as red, green, and black.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse SPF 30 PA+++ Review & Swatches

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse was recently released in Japan. We haven’t seen this one here in the US but fans of Shu’s original UV Mousse will be quite familiar with this one.

The original Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Mousse offered SPF 30 and came in a soft, mousse formula that absorbed easily. I don’t think they actually carry it anymore in the US but don’t quote me, it’s been a while since I explored Shu’s master line.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse simply adds the benefits of whitening to the mix. So if you’re looking to brighten, whiten, or ease dullness on your face it might be one you’d select over the original UV base.
