I suspect that Garnier will start releasing their BB Cream here in the US soon. If we don’t see it for Spring 2012 we will most definitely see it for Summer 2012.
The BB Cream trend we saw around Fall will probably pick up speed again for Spring and Summer and hopefully we’ll see some of the first BB Creams in US Drugstores at some point during those seasons. The first drugstore BB Cream to pop up in the UK and Ireland was Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All in One BB Cream so I predict it’ll be our first as well.
If you aren’t familiar with BB Creams or not sure what I am talking about I suggest you read my What is a BB Cream prior to reviewing this review.
Let’s take a look at Garnier’s BB Cream.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow has landed on our shores.
Released early last year in Europe, these shadows are making the rounds in drugstores here in the states. So far I’ve caught them at Harmons, CVS, and Walgreens with prices ranging from $7.99 to $9.49.
They got pretty strong raves on UK blogs when they were originally introduced and I was quite curious to try them out for myself so it’s nice to see them locally. L’Oreal has some pretty strong releases for Spring 2012 up their sleeves and I do believe Infallible Eyeshadow will get some strong raves across the board. The formula is very nice however it has a few hiccups worthy of a mention.
Let’s take a peek!
My deepest, darkest fragrance has to be Flowerbomb. That’s about it. I’m a fruity, sweet, candy, foody type of fragrance girl. If it’s sweet, I love it.
I normally avoid fragrances with notes like patchouli, amber, Frankincense, etc..
But I’m a little bit curious about Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum.
Freak is a unisex fragrance that promises to be a rich, daringly, provocative new scent to celebrate the night!
Burnt orange bloom as a base is supposedly able to enhance the wearer’s own natural perfume, word.
The notes, ones I’d avoid at all costs typically include Black Davana, Opium Flower, Belladonna, Poison Hemlock, Datura, Queen of the Night blossom, Frankincense, Oud, and Myrrh.
Freak comes bottled up in an art deco inspired bottle, titled to one side in a smoky glass.
Count me curious.
Available now at Sephora.com
I’m tempted to just order it without smelling it, I like surprises and maybe this one might be a pleasant one?
What do you think?
Are you up for the Freak experience?
My favorite freaks….

This one multitasks as a primer, perfector, oil controller, and sunscreen.
It’s formulated with emollients and optical pearl pigments to give your skin a glowing, ethereal look.
I haven’t tried this one yet as I’ve been disappointed with the BB Cream offerings in the US but if you’ve been curious to try it it’s available now at Sephora.
If you tried it feel free to share your thoughts about it!

I’m all about the new Clarins Instant Light Blush that will be releasing with their Spring 2012 Collection. I love lightweight blushes when the weather starts warming up and these blushes look lightweight and glow-y!
Yes please, you will be mine!
