Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm (Summer 2013) Review & Swatches

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms Summer 2013

I’m absolutely thrilled that Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm is back in four new limited edition shades for Summer 2013. Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm made an original appearance in Europe but they took nearly two years to hit our counters for Summer 2012.

I’m happy to have these back this year. Fact of the matter is they are just too cool for school. Especially since this year they come in a translucent base of emerald green and turquoise. You’ll just want to sit around and stare at them rather than apply them to your lips!

Dior Jelly Lip Pen Review & Swatches

Dior Jelly Lip Pen

Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.

Excited much?

I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.

How does Dior’s stand against them?

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream Review

Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43 is one of two new BB Cream formulas that Missha recently introduced in Korea. This isn’t yet available here in the US but I imagine it’ll shortly become available via Missha’s online shop.

There’s actually a white color adjusting formula of this that’s dubbed BB Cream which I am curious to try out but I went the safer route and got the already beige shade.

Let’s take a look!


Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Spring 2013

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Blush was recently launched for Spring 2013 in four shades. Supposedly they smell like the scent of sweet lollipop. You’re probably think, “Oh that’s why she purchased it!” if so you either know me too well or that’s why you would have purchased it too.

Seriously, tell me, lollipop scented blusher, does that not kinda thrill you? I can’t be alone here. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?

L’Oreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Spring 2013

Cherie Merie is one of four new limited edition L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow shades launched with the Miss Candy Collection. This isn’t a new shade for some of you as you might have already gotten your hands on it in Canada under the name Pepsi Coral or in the UK as Magnetic Coral.

But I am happy to report that it is quite different from Magnetic Coral if you own that shade already. I can’t speak for Pepsi Coral though as I do not have it.

I personally adore corals as you know and this shade is no exception to the rule plus the formula is absolute perfection compared to other Infallible shades.
