MAC Ruffian Manicure Review

MAC Ruffian Manicure1

MAC Ruffian Manicure mania is sweeping the beauty scene today. I’m not a nail girl so this is kinda my half-arsed review of the Ruffian Manicure which features three different designs of press on nails.

I got my hands on the Demilune set which is a matte black finish with a gold half moon design. They are pretty wicked in theory but I’m unsure how many people are interested in a set of press on nails. Perhaps nail polishes or even nail strips would have more appeal? But like I mentioned, I’m not nail girl so I’m not an expert. What do you think?

Let’s take a look!

Boscia Bright White Mask

Boscia Bright White Mask

If there’s anything I want out of my skincare products it would be the promise of brighter skin. My skin is so dull without makeup and I’m always looking for ways to perk it up. Boscia Bright White Mask sounds interesting enough!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub 1

Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!

I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.

L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask Review

L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask

Need a little moisture in your life? L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask is on the case.

The biggest factor in aging is dry skin so you wanna keep your skin as moist as possible particularly those with drier skin. Inject as much moisture into dry skin as you possibly can to avoid skin looking dull, lackluster, and old. Toners, serums, mists, moisturizers…layer it all on. Find the best products that work well together and use them daily to nourish skin and keep it at its healthiest.

Unlike the toner I recently reviewed for you, I’m finding the new L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask quite a nice little addition to my skincare regime to add a nice heaping dose of moisture to my skin.

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF 50 was released in Japan this Spring and recently we got got the launch of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil–Free UV Protector SPF 42 PA+++ here in the US.

Interesting that the formulas appear quite similar but offer different levels of protection.

I got mine from Japan however, I swatched the version we have available here in the states and I’ll say both have great formulas that seem pretty much identical outside the fact we have an SPF 42 and Japan offers the SPF 50 option. The version here in the US is more of a milky liquid or what I refer to as a traditional SPF formula versus the creamier version of the Japanese release.

Let’s take a look!
