Sugar Blend Full Coverage Cream Concealer Review & Swatches

Sugar Blend Full Coverage Cream Concealer

I recently picked up Sugar Blend Full Coverage Cream Concealer ($10) online at Kohl’s as a completely random purchase! I was having a little case of nostalgia when I purchased this as one of my first Sephora experiences many, many, many years ago was a Sugar Cosmetics one.

Yes, true story, Sephora used to carry the entire Sugar Cosmetics range. At the time it seemed like the height of awesomeness and I still remember how crazy excited I was about their Sweet Cheeks Baked Blushes! That seems like literally centuries ago!

None the less it’s nice to see that some variation of Sugar is still alive and kicking (and at as local as your neighborhood Kohl’s).

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Swatches

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection arrives in the US just time for Spring 2015. This collection features nine shades of custom red lipstick based upon L’Oreal celebrity and model ambassadors from the past and present. Each L’Oreal Colour Riche Red Lipstick shade represents a different skin tone enabling you to choose your perfect shade of red.

The collection is a follow up to last year’s Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipstick launch which was all about the perfect shade of nude lipstick. Last year, the collection only consisted of six shades so this year we are getting a good deal of more shades to try out. I don’t believe this collection is limited edition but don’t quote me. It is available right now at Walgreens which state it as “exclusively ours” but reports from reader’s state that they have seen the collection at other drugstores.

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipsticks did get a UK launch earlier this year but not all the shades we are seeing here in the us. The nine shades of red lipstick are inspired by Blake Lively, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Zoe Saldana as well as one additional shade titled Because You’re Worth It Red.

Take a look below for swatches!
