Spring Collections 2013
Maybelline Blush in Wild Blossom is one of three new baked blushes released with the Maybelline Color Goes Electric Collection. I picked up Wild Blossom on a whim as it quite reminded me of MAC Sakura Mineralize Blush released with the MAC Quite Cute Collection.
This a cool shimmering lilac shade that won’t work well on everyone. I knew for a fact I’d probably look silly in it but it was such a unique and different blush shade I decided to give it a try.
Maybelline pops into spring with a new selection of limited edition Vivids Lipstick. Infra-Red is one of three shades released with the Mabyelline Color Goes Electric Collection for Spring 2013.
You know how scared I am with red lipsticks. I typically like warmer shades of red but I find myself venturing out of my comfort zone more and more lately. For example, I adored the reds released with MAC Archie’s Girls and MAC’s Marilyn Monroe Collection.
Infra-Red is definitely a popping shade of red with an impressive texture, finish, and gorgeous pigment. It’s pretty powerful and quite bold and not really a shade I’d associate with Spring but adore it I do.

I’m happy to report Kao has launched their next generation Aqua Rich Watery product in the form of a BB Cream. Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB contains the same great formula as the original Aqua Rich Watery SPF 50 which has a mousse-like texture and a moisturizing finish but also now acts as BB Cream for giving skin a brighter appearance on application.
I love the idea of it still containing a generous SPF 50 as well as being tinted to even out skin tone and to act as a tinted moisturizer of sorts. Even if it doesn’t provide the same great benefits as a regular BB Cream I’m still interested in trying it out as I use and love the original sunscreen only version.
This retails for $7-$10 in Japan so expect to pay $14.99 and upwards when it reaches online shops.
I’ll be reviewing it shortly.
