Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 001

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 a necessary evil in my SPF life. If I can, I will avoid milky-type SPF products as I simply don’t like that formula however I will admit some of them I do embrace because they offer superior protection.

That’s the case with Anessa.

Anessa is a popular range of SPF products and is sub-brand of Shiseido which is available in Japan and a few select Asian countries. It’s terribly crummy that the only Shiseido we really experience here in the US is what we found at our high end counter as Shiseido offers a very WIDE array of various products in Asian countries.

Let’s take a look at Anessa and see what it’s such a popular SPF product in Asia.

Milani Marbleized Baked Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Milani Marbleized Baked Eyeshadow 050

As you probably already know Milani released several shades of Marbleized Baked Eyeshadow recently (pssttt I got mine as far back as February when CVS began stocking them).

As I was testing them last week (finally!) I felt like some of them were comparable to the blackened shadows released with the Bobbi Brown Black Velvet Collection for Fall 2010.

If you’re on a bit of a budget and you’re one for wearing single shades of color rather than several at a time these might be your ticket to gorgeous Fall eyes.

Check ‘em!

Forever 21 Love and Beauty Blush 001

Didja know that Forever 21 has its own house brand of cosmetics called Love & Beauty? I haven’t been paying proper attention, blinded by all the damn accessories whenever I go into their stores, because I seriously never pursued their beauty offerings.

Have you?

I’m going to explore them and tell you what I think starting with Love & Beauty Blush!

geoGirl ES Erase Screen Concealer Review, Swatches, Photo

geoGirl ES Erase Screen Concealer 003

People, let me tell you, these old eyes need some serious concealing power because I simply don’t get enough sleep and the baggage under here is enough to take on my European Tour.

But…

Occasionally I like going really light on the concealer particularly when I’ve had eight hours of sleep and just don’t want a ton of makeup on my face.

And right now, that lightweight concealer of choice is from geoGirl, a collection of products that are actually made for tweens but I figure my mentality is that of a tween so I’m safe.
