L’Oreal Pop Shades Colour Riche Balm Review & Swatches

LOreal Pop Shades Colour Riche Balms

L’Oreal Pop Shades Colour Riche Balm ($9.79 at Duane Reade) are a newly formulated L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm in four new, limited edition shades for Winter 2013. The original line of L’Oreal Colour Riche Balm runs sheerer but these new Pop Shades are supposed to be more pigmented. I was excited about this as I really liked the original formula. Yes, it is sheer but it is a nice balm overall and many of the shades have an MLBB (my lips but better) finish.

But honestly, the excitement stems from the fact they decided to add a bit more pigment here as the actual texture of the balms is wonderful so with a touch more color it tips them in the awesome sauce zone.

Sephora Pantone Universe Velvet Lipstick Review & Swatches

Sephora Pantone Universe Velvet Lipstick 6

Why oh why is Sephora Pantone Universe Velvet Lipstick ($18) available in one shade? It blew my mind and proceeded to disappoint me because I only had access to a single shade of it.

Sephora I NEED variety!

Can you please release this awesome sauce formula in more shades?

K, thanks!

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder Review & Swatches

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder is basically savior, my makeup messiah if you will! As you know I adore Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder but for reasons unknown to me Skin Food discontinued it! Skin Food Salmon Concealer, Eye Cream, and Serum are still very much alive and kicking but the powder has disappeared completely.

Sadness.

I’ve worked hard at finding a few replacements and some worked, some not so much! Many readers have asked me if I ever tried Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder but they were referencing my face not a replacement for my beloved Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder.

So I recently purchased Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder and I was delighted that it ended up being a fairly nice replacement for Skin Food’s version!
