Too Faced Summer Eye Palette Review & Swatches

Too Faced Summer Eye Palette 1

Oh excitement, the Too Faced Summer Collection 2012 is appearing at www.toofaced.com today! I was reading on Twitter that the sale was for Glam members only, I’m not a Glam member but I was able to tuck a palette into my cart without any issues, so long as you log it, it seems to allow the purchase!

Kewl!

Did anyone grab anything up yet?

For me, upon first seeing the collection, the new Summer Eye Palette pretty much had me at hello, how are ya! I own pretty much all of the Too Faced Eyeshadow Boxes and was eager to add this to my stash as well. Visually, it’s pretty darn stunning. There’s a bit of a sparkle in there, some playful colors, and the palette just gives off a Summer-y vibe. It also happens to house some fairly bright shades compared to the other palettes with pops of pink, aqua, and coral.

Let’s take a look!

Butter London Lippy Review & Swatches

Butter London Lippy 1

I match.

Yup, I do.

I match my eyeshadow to my shirts and blouses, my chucks to my t-shirts, etc…etc…I’m a matcher. Some folks think this should be outlawed but it’s all about personal style isn’t it?

Butter London Lippy 17

I guess that’s why I’m completely in lust with the idea of the new Butter London Lippy Lipgloss Collection. I’m not a nail girl but this selection of five nail polishes are exact spot on matches for some of Butter London’s most popular nail polish shades. Pretty nifty matching up your tips and lips eh?

Take a look!

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse Review & Swatches

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Instant Skin Smoother BB Mousse 7

The Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Collection is kinda old news in Japan. Its never been released in the US but it did make it’s way across much of Asia upon release.

It happens to be one of those products that throws around “BB” in the title to garner attention but really that’s not a reference to the formula being a BB Cream. I notice the words BB Cream and BB seem to float around a lot when it comes to foundation and base products.

Japan typically releases new products prior to us with different names. For example, our new Bouncy Dream Blushes are called Jello Glow in Japan. I’m mentioning this because I was curious if we might see this BB Mousse pop up here in the US at some point. We sorta have in the form of Maybelline’s new foaming foundation but…packaging is different as well as formula slightly.

I find Maybelline products exceed quality in terms of pigmentation and formula in Japan versus much of the catalog products we have here in the US market so I expected Pure BB Mineral BB Mousse to be something I rejoiced in but sadly it didn’t quite happen that way.

Hey, know what time it is?

Tinted moisturizer time!

You might be living in a cold environment but us New Yorker’s are living the dream. It’s been Spring for the past month or more with temperatures that may go up to 80 this week.

Seriously, it’s pandemonium! The world may end soon.

Time to haul out the TM and get with the lightweight coverage and who better to do the job than Miss Bobbi Brown herself.
