Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer

Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer 0021

Garnier has some new wrinkle reducer out. Notice that snarky way I said that.

Sorry…I just don’t completely buy into all of Garnier’s claims and think they could do so much more with their products particularly when they are creating gems like their gel moisturizers. Guys, let’s see more of that good stuff!

This one is a 2 in 1 product that features a helix swirl of moisturizer plus the addition of serum. A single product to firm skin and hydrate while it’s doing the anti-aging bit.

Interestingly enough I’m seeing more and more products at my local drugstore that have testers out. That includes color cosmetics as well as skincare.

Mmm +1 for the drugstore!

Who’s up for some cheap thrills?

I hauled some New York Color Cosmetics City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss on a recent foray through CVS. They promise to wear for eight hours straight…click.

Needless to say I’m skeptical!

Let’s see how the testing went.

Buxom True Hue Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Buxom True Hue Blush 13

Gotta say I really like what Bare Escentuals has done with the Buxom line. It’s kinda a little brand all its own isn’t it? Many of the offerings are quite delightful as well. I think of it as BE’s younger, hipper little sister.

I can’t say how excited I was about the launch of Buxom True Hue Blush. These are a new blush launching in February that will be available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com in 8 shades.

I gave you a little sneak peek of swatches a week or so ago and after some testing here’s my review.

Take a look!

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup Review, Swatches, Photos

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi Benefit Skin Care Makeup BB Cream 1

BB Creams 2.0, as I like to refer them, are on the scene for Spring. We saw a bit of the BB Cream trend hit the market several months ago here in the US but now that Spring is upcoming we are seeing more and more brands releasing their version of the popular Korean foundation product.

Clueless about BB Creams? Do check out my posts here and here to get you up to speed on what exactly a BB Cream is, what it does, and how it differs from a tinted moisturizer, etc..

So far, BB Creams in the US aren’t quite up to the speed of Korean ones in my opinion particularly in terms of coverage as they seem to lean more towards being a tinted moisturizer here in the US. How they got translated to such a formula is beyond me but that be the case in my experience thus far. I think I like Clinique’s version best to date from the US releases which seemed to offer the most coverage and the most natural.

As you know Too Faced recently introduced their own BB Cream to the scene with their Spring 2012 Collection and I immediately went about getting my hands on one.

Here’s my thoughts!

NYC New York Color Cosmetics Sun n’ Bronze NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer for Spring 2012

NYC New York Color Sun n Bronze Smooth Skin Primer 1

NYC New York Color Cosmetics are starting to haul out the bronzers for Spring. I dunno about you but my Spring break includes a trip to Gallifrey One, so where as others will be hitting Cancun or their local drugstore to get their bronze on I’ll be getting my glow on hunched over a table getting my drool all over Mark Sheppard’s shirt while telling him to sign it to his best girl. If I can’t score with him his dear old da will be there too so maybe I’ll have to look towards that horizon! Yeah, fun fact of the day future Canton Delaware is played by Mark’s dad. Cool right? Past and present versions of Canton played by father and son.

Some Spring break eh?

Take a look!
