MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Retro Matte returns for the Fall season with a new permanent Retro Matte Lipstick collection available in eight shades starting September 12th. I don’t love matte finish lipstick by any means but I can understand and appreciate why people fall so hard for the Retro Matte formula. It’s a very soft, creamy texture that really wears strong.

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm Review & Swatches

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm

Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is a BB Cream that’s formulated for adolescent skin types. Supposedly it controls excess oil that “teenage” skin creates and also includes plant extracts which are ideal for sensitive or troubled skin users.

I am obviously not the demographic that Skin 79 Dream Girls Beblesh Balm is marketing to but I purchased it when it originally launched because it was getting raves for its lighter texture.
