Guerlain Terra Inca Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

At the beginning of my makeup life and most of my older one I absolutely hated cream eyeshadows for some reason. I just couldn’t stand them. Perhaps it was my lack of patience during application of such a medium or the fact they tended to crease like crazy (circa BUDPP, “Before Urban Decay Primer Potion) but I avoided them like the plague.

I became enamored with them when I discovered the joy of Visee Quad Shining Eyes and ever after that faithful day creams have been a staple of my eyeshadow life.

For Summer 2011, Guerlain introduced three shades of Terra Inca Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow in warm, gorgeous hues to compliment your tan.

Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush Review, Swatches, Photos

The warm weather has set in. I’m looking forward to a heated New York Summer, let’s hope this good weather lasts because if you live around these parts you’ve probably been way disappointed at our lack of Spring.

Jumping in the Summer I’m already stocking up on facial mists, lightweight moisturizers, and cheeks stains! I love naturally flushed cheeks in the Summer with minimal to no eye makeup so I’m all about hunting out the best cheek stains of the moment.

I tried out Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush which is quite a dupe-tastic version of Tarte’s legendary Cheek Stains.

Let’s take a peek!

Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen Review

I should hope you’re using SPF all year round. Rain, shine, snow, fiery balls falling from the sky, whatever the day brings I hope it starts with a solid SPF.

And shame on you if you aren’t wearing SPF!

SPF isn’t the easiest product in the world to wear in my opinion. Some are greasy, some too oily, some break me out, some feel way heavy, some suffocate my skin……It’s tough SPF world out there.

But it’s an absolutely necessary evil that you apply it everyday, diligently, to protect your skin and keep it looking its youthful best.

Products that make SPF easy are on my hit list so thank you Bare Escentuals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen for making SPF easy, simple, and painless!

Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun Bronzer Review, Swatches, Photos

I say Brazil and you think what…?

Brazilian Wax?
Rio de Janeiro?
Hawt Footballer Players?

I dunno why but the only thing that pops into my head when I think Brazil is an interview Freddy Mercury did in 1985 while he was in Rio. He seemed so incredibly put out in that interview…! But when he says, “I am the surprise!” it makes me laugh. Sigh…so yeah, that’s what I think of when I hear Brazil, my mind works in strange and unusual ways!

Speaking of Brazil, I’m depending on the Jelly Pong Pong Brazilian Sun Bronzer to give me a sunkissed glow this Summer because it’s bronzer for dummies yo! So easy to apply!

Check it!
