Chanel Frivole Joues Contraste Blush Review & Swatches

Chanel Joues Contraste Blush Frivole

Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Frivole will be launched with the Chanel Spring 2013 Precieux de Printemps de Chanel Collection.

At a glance it’s an intimating shade of orange but is described as a apricot by Chanel. For me, it’s orange, I’m not getting the apricot. Considering I have this unusual obsession with orange makeup, even though I can’t wear it, I was intrigued by the shade.

Take a look!

Bath & Body Works Sparkling Blackberry Woods

Bath Body Works Sparkling Blackberry Woods

Bath & Body Works has launched a new scent entitled Sparkling Blackberry Woods.

This is a mix of sparkling blackberries, warm woods, creamy cocoa, and warm musk.

I’m not a fond fan of some of Bath & Body Works other “woodsy” blends so I’ll probably skip this. But it could potentially be cause for great excitement for those that enjoy fragrances like Twilight Woods, Cranberry Woods, etc…

It’s available in:

  • Body Lotion
  • Fragrance Mist
  • Shower Gel
  • Shimmer Mist
  • Triple Moisture Body Cream

It’s launched in store as well as online.

If you sniffed it do share your commentary about it. Would love to hear. I must admit I wasn’t impressed with Forever Red so I’m kinda veering away from fragrances Bath & Body Works does lately. I’ll stick with candles, anti-bacs, and fragrance oils from them!

Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Skincare & Dark Spot Treatment Collection

Yes to Grapefruit Skincare

Yes to Grapefruit has a new Brightening and Dark Spot Treatment Collection for Spring 2013. I’ve been seeing a variety of trends for Spring 2013 and I’m sure one of them that will be back this year is dark spot and brightening skincare products.

Last year we saw a huge increase in the brightening skincare market as well as dark spot treatments. This incredible boost in the market was met by great excitement for those of that have turned to Asian skincare products for many years to brighten our skin. Finally the US market is catching up! Dark Spot Treatment are also blown out of the water this year with both mainstream drugstore picks as well as higher end ones launching all around the board. So far my personal favorite has been from Philosophy!

I’d be highly interested to give Yes to Grapefruit’s new collection a try though as it is a good deal more affordable.

Take a look!

Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15 for Spring 2013

Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15

Iman Skintone Evener BB Creme SPF 15 ($20) is one of the latest drugstore BB Creams to hit the market for Spring 2013. As we get closer to the Holidays end and Spring starts down its nose at us we’ll probably start to see the next generation of BB Creams hitting mid-range counters and of course, drugstore shelves. Lumene has a new BB Cream launching soon as well as Urban Decay (two to look forward too!). CC Creams will also see some development come Spring with a larger focus for Summer 2013 I’m sure.

Iman’s $20 price tag isn’t drugstore beauty budget friendly but it might just be worth checking out if you’re a deeper skin tone!
