Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation ($7) is a new Invisible Camouflage Foundation launching with the Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Collection that will be available in 8 permanent shade selections.

Hi, I’m the Muse, I’m a foundation and concealer snob. If there is one thing in the makeup world I believe in splurging on it would be 1. foundation and 2. concealer. I am under the impression that I cannot for the life of me not only find a color match from drugstore foundations or concealers but also find a formula I actually LIKE using. Some are too heavy, some too cakey, others are orange, too beige…it’s just a sea of foundations that just do not work for me. Rarely am I able to actually find a foundation product at the drugstore that I’m happy with! Likewise for concealer (although the drugstore concealer world has been making some huge strides lately)!

I present you with Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation and challenge you to buy it and use it. And proceed to love it.


Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Review & Swatches

Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss

Shiseido InteGrate Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss was released for Winter 2014 in 7 shade selections within Japan. These are marketed as a lipgloss that has a serum-like texture which contains moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

I’m actually not a Integrate fan, it’s one of Shiseido sub brands out of Japan that I like least of all. However, in recent years they have been introducing some really great products so I’m always looking out to see what they will introduce next.

When the Girls Kiss Jelly Lipgloss launched I knew it would be an instant like for me! And I was right!


Bobbi Brown Art Stick Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Hot Collection Art Sticks

If you’re a Bobbi Brown Art Stick lover you’ll be happy to know that Hot Pink, Hot Berry, and Hot Orange are three limited edition shades which launched with the new Bobbi Brown Hot Collection for Spring 2015.

I always get excited when some product I really love gets introduced in new shades! Strangely enough though this is my first experience with Bobbi Brown’s Art Sticks which launched last year but this introduction only makes me want more of them!

They are divine!

TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream Review & Swatches

TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream 6

I recently got TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream in me Tonymoly Memebox. It was a product I’ve wanted to try for a long time but for some reason I just never purchased it! So I was delighted when it arrived in my Memebox!

Yes, one of the reasons I wanted it was because it was shaped like an apple. Sue me, I love cute beauty 😀

But it’s actually a fantastic facial moisturizer too!
