It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Illumination CC Cream

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination is a new illuminating, lit from within glow finish version of It Cosmetics very popular CC Cream that will be launching March 27th on QVC in the CC+ Your Way to Radiant Skin Set.

If you recall It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination launched in 2013 so It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical CC Cream Illumination joins the family with this new finish of CC Cream.

I happen to have a fuller face and applying illuminating anything on it feels like I’m putting a spotlight on the roundness of my face. I also feel like glow-y finishes tend to make me look oily even though I’m far from it. So I am kinda wary of anything that promises an “illuminating” finish!

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer ($6) is a newly formulated long wearing Sheer Envy facial primer that’s launching with the Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.

I should mention I am NOT a fan of Sheer Envy. The color correcting formulas that launched a few months ago are very poorly formulated and pill like mad. Do not want, do not like. So I must admit I was very skeptical of the Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer considering it has the same name as the original formula. If you recall Sheer Envy started off life as a lotion-like formula. Later on when Hard Candy introduced a few more versions the texture and formula was more of a silicone primer.

The newest edition combines both silicones and a creaminess that I actually liked and enjoyed using and even feel confident recommending!

Orange, Berry, and Pink are three new, limited edition Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Sheer Lip Color Lipsticks that launched with the new Bobbi Brown Hot Spring 2015 Collection. Sheer Lip Color has been a long time favorite of mine especially if you’re looking for a lightweight balmy lipstick!

The new shades of Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Sheer Lip Color bring some playfully vibrant shades to the table that are completely wearable courtesy their gorgeous formula. So purple lipstick? That’s totally a wearable shade in this moisturizing, easy to apply formula.

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder ($6) is a new transparent silica that launched with the new Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Makeup Collection recently which is available exclusively at Walmart and Walmart.com.

There’s definitely something to be said about $6 translucent finishing powder that you can easily purchase at your local Wally World. As far as pressed silica powder goes it is a little lacking at the drugstores. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of pressed powders and loose ones but simple silica powder? Not really. I’m surprised we didn’t a round of “HD” drugstore products by now, guess the drugstore missed the mark there.

None the else if you’re on a beauty budget six bucks might seem fab but my experience with Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder was meh!

Revlon Sandstorm Super Lustrous Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss Sandstorm

Revlon Sandstorm Super Lustrous Lipgloss is a new shade that recently launched with the Revlon the Sahara Escape Spring 2015 Collection. If the name sounds familiar that’s probably because Sandstorm Super Lustrous Lipstick is one of the five shades that launched with the Revlon The Legacy Super Lustrous Lipstick Collection last year.

For me the two shades are dramatically different so I’m curious why they did a gloss of the same name if it wasn’t quite matching with the original lipstick shade that is smoldering bronze-y color. I think perhaps they thought this might look good on time of the darker shade of the lipstick color perhaps?

Let’s take a look and see what the scoop is!
