Dior Jelly Lip Pen Review & Swatches

Dior Jelly Lip Pen

Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.

Excited much?

I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.

How does Dior’s stand against them?

Take a look!

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream Review

Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43 is one of two new BB Cream formulas that Missha recently introduced in Korea. This isn’t yet available here in the US but I imagine it’ll shortly become available via Missha’s online shop.

There’s actually a white color adjusting formula of this that’s dubbed BB Cream which I am curious to try out but I went the safer route and got the already beige shade.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Spring 2013

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Blush was recently launched for Spring 2013 in four shades. Supposedly they smell like the scent of sweet lollipop. You’re probably think, “Oh that’s why she purchased it!” if so you either know me too well or that’s why you would have purchased it too.

Seriously, tell me, lollipop scented blusher, does that not kinda thrill you? I can’t be alone here. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?

Take a look!

L’Oreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

LOreal Cherie Merie Infallible Eyeshadow Spring 2013

Cherie Merie is one of four new limited edition L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow shades launched with the Miss Candy Collection. This isn’t a new shade for some of you as you might have already gotten your hands on it in Canada under the name Pepsi Coral or in the UK as Magnetic Coral.

But I am happy to report that it is quite different from Magnetic Coral if you own that shade already. I can’t speak for Pepsi Coral though as I do not have it.

I personally adore corals as you know and this shade is no exception to the rule plus the formula is absolute perfection compared to other Infallible shades.

Take a peek!

Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads Review

Almay Longwear Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Four score and seven years ago the Muse was a younger girl and tried out Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. This devil product nearly put me off Eye Makeup Remover for all time. It was greasy, oily, and it blinded me with science…not really science but it was cool to throw that in a sentence.

No seriously, they were so OILY that they ended up giving me trippy eye vision for hours after. I must have been 18ish or so when I first tried them. I had a brief stint working at CVS when I was around 16 or so so it could have been even as far back as that when I originally tried them.

Almay recently launched four new pad eye makeup removers and two new liquid eye makeup removers. I saw the display, quickly shook my head, and walked away from it. Those pads are evil I told myself, you’re still recovering from the last time you used them, remember what an emotional wreck you were after using them that first time? Needless to say curiosity killed the cat but this cat was curious none the less….so I decided to repurchase the Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I mean there was Kate Hudson right on display, smiling at me reassuringly. This must mean they somehow reformulated these pads! No oil, no trippy cloudy vision that makes me want to play I am the Walrus as I stumble from my bathroom to my bedroom….goo goo g’joob indeed.

How are they?
