Shiseido Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick Review & Swatches

Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick

Oily eyes? Shiseido Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick will be your new best friend. It’s starting to warm up around here and even my drier slip produces a bit of oil in the warmer, humid weather so what worked great for me in the Winter isn’t always a great option in the Summer! That includes hydrating concealers so I tend like switching up my more moisturizing concealers for concealer stickers that have a bit of a drier, denser formula as they tend to wear longer for me!

Shiseido Integrate Gracy Natural Makeup Concealer Stick is one such great pick!

Secret Kiss Chubby Jelly Tint Pack Review & Swatches

Secret Kiss Chubby Jelly Tint Pack1

Secret Kiss Chubby Jelly Tint Pack is a new lip mask slash lip stain slash lip color slash lip tattoo that’s incredibly odd and every so unique. Typically “pack” is a loosely used term in Asian beauty that refers to facial masks, face powders, and in some cases, like this one, a lip mask.

But this isn’t a traditional lip mask by any means. It’s not something you’re going to lay around with and come out of the experience with exfoliated and softer lips. Oh no no…this is a lip staining mask.

Odd?

Sure.

But I’m about beauty unusual!

Colourpop Nillionaire Super Shock Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Colourpop Nillionaire Eyeshadow

Colourpop Nillionaire Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5) is one of a few new shades of eyeshadow that launched with the Colourpop Summer 2015 Collection and oh so afford at five bucks! Going into this purchase I was quite excited because Nillionaire is a really gorgeous warm bronze shade. Honestly, Colourpop’s swatches and images do not do this one justice!

But be warned, it’s a glitter bomb!

The Best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens

japanese sunscreens

I wanted to compile a rather small list of the best Japanese SPF and Sunscreens that I’ve personally used and loved for many a fine year. I’ve used a lot of Japanese sunscreens over the years but three featured in this post are ones I come to back to again and again and again because I love how well they perform, how great they look and feel under makeup, and how fabulous the formula is.

Unfortunately, the US market hasn’t quite caught up to the Japanese one when it comes to creating lightweight, easy to absorb SPF formulas. I truly believe the Japanese excel at this which is one of the reason I purchase sunscreen products from Japan. They also happen to be affordable picks as well!

Let’s take a look!

Tarte Beauty in the Basics Set Review & Swatches

Tarte Beauty in the Basics Set

Tarte Beauty in the Basics Set ($47) is a May QVC’s Today’s Special that debuts May 11th and includes six full size Tarte products including the new Tarte Smoothing Balm Foundation. As always with these QVC sets you’re really getting an excellent value and a nice bang for your buck especially since you’ll be trying out brand new products in the set.

There’s been a lot of chatter though that the Beauty in the Basics Set is a bit repetitive due to the shades of eyeshadow in the palette. I understand, Tarte does in fact do a lot of nude, neutral eyeshadow palettes but honestly, I tried and review the Tarte Amazon Clay of Life Colored Clay Eyeshadow Palette and you might just want to take a chance on it as it appears Tarte has reformulated their eyeshadows for this palette and did a damn good job of it too.

Let’s take a peek!
