Lancome Bordeaux L’Absolu Rouge Holiday 2012 Review & Swatches

Lancome Bordeaux LAbsolu Rouge Holiday 2012

Lancome L’Absolut Rouge in Bordeaux premieres in the Lancome Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection. Just when I thought I wasn’t going to find my perfect shade of Holiday red lipstick Lancome gifts it to me in this stunning shade!

Everyone always says that red is easy enough to wear so long as you find the RIGHT shade of it to wear. For years I thought that very untrue. I was terrified of the shade and felt all kinds of clown-y in all the true shades of red I tried. I avoided the color for many, many years but happily embraced it when I discovered that warm shades of red are rather flattering on me.

Bordeaux is one of those easy shades of red that I can embrace. It’s that festive shade of red that puts me in a Holiday mood and completes all my looks for the season.

You NEED it if you love warm shades of red.

Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review & Swatches

Revlon Photoready BB Cream1

I picked up Revlon Photoready BB Cream on Saturday and blogged it from my car. Revlon BB Cream? Yeah, I was excited.

I actually found it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond marked at a very reasonable $8.29. I was surprised as although BBB is part of Harmons, typically their prices are higher for some odd reason or another. $8.29 seems reasonable enough. I suspect once it hits the standard round of drugstores the price will range from $9.99-$11.99.

Having been very disappointed with Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream as well as other US BB Creams I haven’t pinned too many hopes on Revlon Photoready BB Cream.

What did I think?

Here’s a few thoughts!

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup for Spring 2013

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation

I told you a little about Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup yesterday. This is a new foundation that Almay has released in four shade selection that has a self adjusting formula which becomes your “perfect” shade after application.

“Mousse” makeup had me thinking whipped, creamy, and more along the lines of Revlon’s Colorstay Whipped Foundation released several months ago but actually this formula seems a little different.
