Depending how you look at the Stila DayDream Palette it’s either really exciting or really ho-hum. I happen to fit into the realms of being kinda excited about it and kinda meh about it. Stila released a massive palette like this last year and I generally liked it but fast forward to this year and it gets a bit repetitive and easily duped.
I will say the Daydream palette, in terms of packaging, is visually pleasing. I say “visually” since it actually isn’t practical or user friendly in some cases but more on that later. The price is a very nice $18 as well so if you’re seeking to gift something a little special this is quite cute.
Let’s take a look!
L’Oreal has a brand new click pen concealer they released with their Magic Lumi Collection. I love click pens they just make application super easy and they are oh so portable for touch ups on the go. I know some folks feel they are breeding ground for bacteria particularly lipglosses in this style packaging but I can’t help but love how simple and easy to use they are.
I’m a concealer junkie, I mean, I probably have more concealers than I do eyeshadows (slight exaggeration for dramatic purposes) so I was all about checking this out but was a little wary since the Magic Lumi Collection is all about highlighting and illuminating. In most cases, concealers that are meant to illuminate end up looking crazy shimmery and adding shimmer under aging eyes, not a good idea peeps.
Let’s take a look and see if L’Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer is worth a go.
It’s official, Revlon has ruined me for all lip balms and lip butters. I was deeply impressed with these pigmented, hydrating lip balms and I think they set some sort of standard for newly released lip balms as that could prove why I was an ickle disappointed with the newest L’Oreal Colour Rich Balm.
Let’s have a look and see what the deal is.
Here’s a few swatches of the new L’Oreal Colour Rich Balms.
I have a theory that Wet n Wild rushed along their success a little too quickly. Last year, they came out with not only an outstanding Holiday Collection but also some very key catalog items that proved incredibly good for a lower end drugstore cosmetic brand.
This year, they made some valid attempts to top themselves but so far I’m not entirely impressed with the LE offerings particularly ones they released for the Holidays.
