Who’s up for some cheap thrills?
I hauled some New York Color Cosmetics City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss on a recent foray through CVS. They promise to wear for eight hours straight…click.
Needless to say I’m skeptical!
Let’s see how the testing went.
Gotta say I really like what Bare Escentuals has done with the Buxom line. It’s kinda a little brand all its own isn’t it? Many of the offerings are quite delightful as well. I think of it as BE’s younger, hipper little sister.
I can’t say how excited I was about the launch of Buxom True Hue Blush. These are a new blush launching in February that will be available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com in 8 shades.
I gave you a little sneak peek of swatches a week or so ago and after some testing here’s my review.
Take a look!
BB Creams 2.0, as I like to refer them, are on the scene for Spring. We saw a bit of the BB Cream trend hit the market several months ago here in the US but now that Spring is upcoming we are seeing more and more brands releasing their version of the popular Korean foundation product.
Clueless about BB Creams? Do check out my posts here and here to get you up to speed on what exactly a BB Cream is, what it does, and how it differs from a tinted moisturizer, etc..
So far, BB Creams in the US aren’t quite up to the speed of Korean ones in my opinion particularly in terms of coverage as they seem to lean more towards being a tinted moisturizer here in the US. How they got translated to such a formula is beyond me but that be the case in my experience thus far. I think I like Clinique’s version best to date from the US releases which seemed to offer the most coverage and the most natural.
As you know Too Faced recently introduced their own BB Cream to the scene with their Spring 2012 Collection and I immediately went about getting my hands on one.
Here’s my thoughts!
I didn’t think I’d ever come across anything as pigmented as Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer but fact is, It Cosmetics has targeted the market when it comes to super, duper, I can cover your dark circles, bags, and just about everything else that needs concealing.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-aging Concealer is probably one of the craziest concealers I’ve run across to date. Lord knows I know me some concealer and this one tops in at amazing.
Buh-bye dark circles, hello gorgeous!
Wet n Wild Megashield is a new hybrid lipstick slash lip balm product with an SPF 15. I’m kinda loving all these new balms and lip butters lately so I was eager to try this as hey, the price is a mere $2.99.
