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. But really, do we have to choose? Most of us probably feel we can rock either palette and I’m in complete agreement.

I just seem to favor Theodora at the moment though, here are my thoughts about her.

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.

NARS Blush in Seduction is part of the NARS Spring 2013 Collection. Described as a sangria shade this is one of those bold shades of color that tanned and darker skin tones will absolutely adore.

It’s a deep, rich red wine that packs quite a punch!

Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm Review

I am loving Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm at the moment. It’s been pretty cold the last few days and my lips suffer for it as they get dry and chapped.

You ever just torture yourself with chapped lips? You KNOW you shouldn’t be licking them but you still do anyway to gain some sort of small victorious relief….but the relief is so damn short lived and just made things worst.


That’s why we all needed a good moisturizing balm to get us through the long, hard winter and if it’s tinted? All the nicer!
