Boots No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Boots Instant Radiance Beauty Balm

I have a great love affair with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm but Boots No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm ($15.99) is cheaper and it makes my skin glow with health and vitality.

I’ll take it.

Anything to ease the dull, tired look of my stressed out skin please.

Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser Review

Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser Holiday 2012

Lush Let the Good Times Roll is a new facial cleanser released for Holiday/Christmas 2012 that’s available for a short time only. Why oh why must they make these things limited edition?

As you know from many, many, many of my past posts I’m a hardcore Busche de Noel Cleanser fan. I thank the Lush gods that it’s come back each Holiday Season. Personally I think they should make it part of the standard cleanser collection and while there at it please for the love of all good facial cleansers make Let the Good Times Roll a part of it too!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick 34

The MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection has launched online and will be available this Thursday on counter. The collection is an ode to one of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, Marilyn Monroe.

If MAC was going to be inspired by anyone I’d say Marilyn was a good pick to represent classic, silver screened beauty. The collection features an array of products inspired by the starlet and features her beautiful image on the packaging.

Marilyn Monroe was a very minimalist beauty queen in my eyes. Some liner, vibrant red lips, and milky skin was about the extent of her look so of course, MAC introduced four vibrant, limited edition shades of red lipstick to suit a ton of different skin tones.

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick 35

I’m not a fond fan of red lipstick but I’ve come across a few that I hold on tight too. I typically look best (or I’m delusional that I look good) in warmer shades of red. I think it’s nice that the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection has a variety of reds to choose from to suit cooler and warmer skin tones.

Let’s take a look at two of my favorite shades from the launch.

Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup Review & Swatches

Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup Foundation

Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup is a newly launched hydrating liquid foundation that creates a flawless, bare skin finish.

I’m seeing SO many different foundations lately that embrace second skin technology however, many of them prove a little to runny for me and I’m not liking the “glow” effect that comes along with them.

However, I was quite curious to check out Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup and quite happy I did as it’s a keeper.
