Too Faced No Makeup Makeup Fresh & Flawless Face Palette Review & Swatches

Too Faced No Makeup Makeup Fresh Flawless Face Palette 1

For Spring Too Faced goes natural with its new No Makeup Makeup Fresh & Flawless Face Palette. This nifty little compact features essentials for creating a flawless, natural no makeup look.

As much as I love a full on makeup look there are weekends where I am far too lazy to apply a full face and just desire something light and makeup-less looking but I fear going completely without my essentials like concealer for example and a little blush.

I associate Spring with lighter makeup. A fresh face for Spring is lovely plus the weather is just starting to warm up so natural makeup is always a nicer touch when coming out from hibernation.

Too Faced packs all you’ll need to create your natural look in one cute, easy to travel with tin!


NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust Review & Swatches

NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust

NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust is a new loose eyeshadow available in ten shades for $2.99 that launched recently for Spring 2013. I purchased two colors at my local CVS not expecting much but being rather wow’ed by how pigmented these little guys are!

Revlon Colorstay Concealer (Spring 2013) Review & Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Concealer

Revlon released a new version of Colorstay Concealer for Spring 2013. I’ve never tried this concealer before but I do believe it might simply be a repackaged version of their original Colorstay formula which used to come in a click pen applicator. But don’t quote me as I never tried that one….! I’m assuming that perhaps it was repackaged and has minor formula adjustments.

According to Revlon it will provide 24 hours of wear. This drugstore cosmetic claims get more and more ridunkculous lately….being a concealer junkie I’m all about long wear but 24 straight hours?  Who even needs that?

L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush Review & Swatches

LOreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush

L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush is a contouring and illuminating blush created in six shades for Spring 2013.

These have a lightweight, mousse-like texture much like Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush. The lighter texture is supposed to give skin a more youthful, healthy “lifted” look with a texture that doesn’t settle into fine lines. There’s irony in the “doesn’t settle into fine lines” because the formula made me look like I have monstrously huge pores when in fact my pores are so tiny you’d need a magifying mirror to actually see them so I can just imagine what they’d do on a finely lined face.
