Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector Review

Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector 001

I find the sudden flow of dark spot correctors on the market recently very interesting. Clinique started the fade up last year or so and this year, particularly this season, we’ve seen various treatments from not only higher end brands but also drugstore ones as well.

I personally go into these purchases with the hope of two things. One, brighter skin and two, I have some darkness around my lower jawline that I’d like to lighten.

Lancome Bright Expert Dark Spot Corrector & Radiance Activator promises results in as little as four weeks. I’ve been using it for a bit longer that so I thought I’d finally settle in for a review.

Take a look!

Caudalie Zeste de Vigne Review

Hidee ho!

Just a quick note, I’m very…very…….VERY behind on comments. I apologize!

On that note, let’s take a look at Caudalie Zeste de Vigne my new obsession. I’m a fruity sweet kinda girl, throw in a few foody scents too and I’m as happy as a clam. I like really sweet fragrances and in some aspects my fragrance preferences are somewhat immature.

Caudalie Zeste de Vigne 001

However, there are times that I like more unique, unusual, and mature fragrances like Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien which is where Zeste de Vigne comes into play. This unique blend is one of three fragrances that Mathilde Thomas founder of Caudalie created which recreates the feeling of walking through her family‚Äôs vineyard at dawn, noon, and dusk.

Zeste de Vigne is inspired by a noontime stroll through the vineyard orangery, with the sun bathing citrus trees that delicately perfume the air with dazzling sparkles of tangy citrus, orange blossom, and lemon according to Mathilde Thomas.

For me, it’s bottled up sunshine with just the right touches of green!

Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer Review, Swatches, Photos

Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer 006

Almay Wake Up Under Eye Concealer is a new concealer that promises to conceal and depuff. Is it me or does every single new concealer that comes out promise to depuff under eyes?

Maybe they read my blog and realize I need a little depuffing action. Honestly, they NEVER work though. They might conceal the puff but not treat it.

Anyway, I avoided this particular concealer for a while since it’s a squeeze tube with a brush application. No likey the packaging. I knew it would prove messy and I was right but I decided to give it a whirl anyway as that “wake up” bit had me….anything that wakes my eyes up or promises to ends up capturing my attention easily.
