L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke Mascara Review

LOreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke Mascara Spring 2013

L’Oreal introduced their new L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke 24H Mascara for Spring 2013 and I have to tell you I was hesitate about indulging.

My experience with the Voluminous Mascara Collection has been rather poor and in general, I’d be the first one to admit I haven’t found many mascaras, both high and low end, that have truly wow’ed me over the last several years.

But this year I seem to be on a roll! First the new Telescopic Mascara and now this little gem from L’Oreal and I’m one very happy mascara girl (P.S. Another one to think about, the new Tarte Mascara launching with the Tarte QVC Today Special Value, more on that soon).

Take a look!

Urban Decay Theodora Palette Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Theodora Palette 11

Urban Decay has launched two new palettes inspired by the movie Oz the Great and Powerful. The Urban Decay Theodora Palette ($49) was a fast favorite for me as I’m a brunette who loves nude, natural shades of eyeshadow. Glinda would be most suitable for blond, blue eyed ladies.

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation Review & Swatches

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation 8

My review on Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation is a long time coming. It’s something I’ve used almost religiously for the past several months and something that really excites me since I can’t wear powder foundation products well due to my drier skin.

This is a silky, loose powder foundation with light-reflecting pigments, minerals and plant extracts that creates a radiant matte finish and a natural, bare skin effect. There’s the keywords, “bare skin effect”…! Who doesn’t want coverage that’s flawless and natural?

That’s one of the key benefits of Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation, the bare skin effect and the reason I LOVE it.
