Missha Signature Super Light Foundation Review & Swatches

Missha Signature Super Light Foundation4

Missha Signature Super Light Foundation is a new fluid foundation that launched in Korean a few months ago. Fluid Foundations are trending at the moment as it seems myself and the rest of the makeup world is obsessed with seamless, natural coverage that looks and appears skin-like. It’s kinda what we’ve been waiting for our entire makeup life isn’t it? Smooth, even coverage that just looks like your skin. No cakiness, no dryness, just smooth, flawlessness.

Sure, there are tons of foundations on the market that promise to do that but so few exceed at it. I also thing we’re in the midst of a foundation evolution because foundation formulas seem to have mad a huge turn around the last three years or so. They’ve become lighter, they’ve become longer wearing, they’ve become more user friendly, and above all else they’ve become even more flawless than I personally can every remember them being.

And that, well that’s a good thing yes?

Illamasqua Sculpting Palette for Fall 2015

Illamasqua Sculpting Palette

Meet the new Illamasqua Sculpting Palette ($62) for Fall 2015 that contains six versatile powder shades which work in harmony to contour and highlight. These six shades have matte and shimmer finishes with different textures and consistencies that act to shape, define, and sculpt your complexion.

Shades include:

  • Rush
  • Cirrus
  • Heroine
  • Nimbus
  • Steal
  • Create

I’m amazing how far contouring as come the last few months. We see so many beauty trends that come and go but none the follow through so much from season to season. Contour palettes came at us slowly for Spring 2015, with a full force for Summer, and as we head into Fall the looks is still getting a good deal of attention. I’m curious what sort of run way looks we’ll see that embrace the contouring trend come September.

For those bitten by the contouring but you can get the Illamasqua Sculpting Palette at www.illamasqua.com.

Milani Awakening Rose Rose Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Milani Awakening Rose Powder Blush

Milani Awakening Rose Rose Powder Blush ($7.99) is one of three new, limited edition Milani Rose Powder Blush shades that launched for Summer 2015.

One of the things that set these new shades apart from others was the fact they have a luminous finish! Sadly though, I noticed seeing that effect best from Blossomtime Rose versus any of the other shades!

Awakening Rose doesn’t quite have that luminous glow I’m always seeking out in blushes but it is a very solid, neutral shade that should look very nice on fairer skin tones.

Take a peek!

Bath & Body Works Does Halloween 2015 Right!

bath & body works halloween 3 wick candle pedestal

The Bath & Body Works Halloween 2015 Collection is looking PRETTY good so far my friends. As you may know the past few years the Bath & Body Works Halloween Collection has been rather, well, bleak. Sure, they have had a range of Pocketbacs and a few hand soaps but nothing like we’ve seen from years past.

Who remembers Plum Potion, Wicked Spice Pumpkin, Scream-a-Colada, and Black Candy Apple Body Lotion!? Ah those were the days! Or how about all the great Bath & Body Works Liplicious Potent Potions Collection that includes yummy lipglosses like Wicked Kiss, Vampire Vixen, and Forbidden Apple and the Bath & Body Works Treacherous Treats Liplicious Collection which yummie flavors like Strawberry Boo-Nila? I mean I remember that was the year they introduced about 10 different Halloween Lipglosses! Truly it was a treat for Halloween lovers like myself!

I’m a huge fan of Halloween. I’m not really a Christmas-y type of person but autumn, Thanksgiving, and Halloween? I’m ALL in! Give me a fat turkey and tons of candy over the guy in a red suit with a beard any damn day of the week!

Pacifica Jasmine Iris Oil Control Primer Review & Swatches

Pacifica Jasmine Iris Oil Control Primer1

Pacifica Jasmine Iris Oil Control Primer ($18) is a new makeup primer with oil control that’s silicone free.

I’m pretty happy with my Revlon Photoready Primer but I’m always happy to try something new and Pacifica Jasmine Iris Oil Control Primer seems nice enough to curb the minimal shine I get in the Summer so I decided to purchase it and give it a whirl.
