L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Healthy Glow Face Powder Review, Swatches, Photos

The L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Makeup Collection is inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze, the brand unveiled its stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues and velvety textures enriched with softening peony extract earlier last week.

The new Healthy Glow Face Powder is a matte bronze that has a soft peony fragrance that warms up the complexion with a soft glow of the sun.

I tried it this morning!

Here are my thoughts!

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Bobbi goes bare for Summer with her new Almost Bare Collection. This a small release that concentrates on lightweight coverage (Bobbi’s new TM’s!), a bit of bronzer, and a sheer, sparkling lip.

I can’t think of a single artist who does the bare, minimal makeup as well as Bobbi Brown.

Let’s take a peek at the new, limited edition Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss included with this collection!

Japonesque Lipstick Palette Kit

I do believe I was born to slump over a boiling cauldron and mutter about boiling toil and such. I wanted to be just like The Graeae when I grew up. Hey, don’t hate, you might have wanted to be Britney Spears or Barbie when you were growing up but I thought being part of a trio of old witches that shared a single eyeball and a tooth was all that and a bag of crisps. I wasn’t picky either, I’d have settled to be one of the three witches from Macbeth too…or that crazy broad from Dark Crystal, she was wicked!

For serious.

Japonesque totally understands the need to sit before a boiling cauldron, yell out in a cackle “boil, boil, toil, and trouble”, and share eyeballs with your fellow witch-y sisters…! That’s why they created their new Lipstick Palette Kit!

Check it!

Boscia BB Cream SPF 27 PA++

Japanese brand, Boscia, brought the second BB Cream release to the US market late last week. With the introduction of BB Creams incoming to the Western Market you’re bound to see quite a few from your favorite brands popping up in the next few months.

Like many of you I’ve expressed both joy and concern about BB releases in the US. I think we all love the idea of easily getting BB Creams at our fav stores and counters however we also worry that the formulas will change from the traditional Asian BB Creams we all know and love.

So far, I was terribly disappointed in Dr. Jart’s attempt…!

Let’s take a pick at the new Boscia BB Cream and see what it offers.

La Fresh Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes Review

Dear Makeup World,

We need makeup remover wipes that can attack waterproof eye makeup!

k, thanks!

Looking forward to what you can come up with.

What’s the dealio with makeup remover wipes that refuse to remove waterproof mascara? Is it some sort of conspiracy to drive me mad?

My fav wipes are undoubtedly MAC ones but even those have a difficult time getting off all my mascara without a hell of alot of rubbing action. The Kao Group in Japan makes a Biore Makeup Remover with oil that removes waterproof eye makeup…um, hello why can’t we have it too?

La Fresh, my kinda new fav indie brand, created Waterproof Makeup Remover Wipes for eyes and lips….

Wonder if they work?

Check it!
