Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser Is Anything But Bland

Lush Ultrabland

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser ($29.95) is one of those cleansers that might remind you of your grandmother’s cold cream days. I’ve been using Ultrabland on and off for over ten years now. I used to be a major Lush Baby Face fan girl until it was discontinued. Ultrabland is the same idea just in a different format but it never quite caught on with me until I realized how good it was for my drier skin.

I actually always keep it stashed around and I use it on and off to remove my makeup. It’s one of those cleansers that’s great if you embrace the Korean double cleansing method. It’s also fabulous for drier skin types.

Here’s a look!

Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads Are Small In Size But Big on Removal!

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.

Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads

Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads ($10) launched with the Pixi Summer 2016 Collection and yet another fine addition to Pixi’s Skincare Collection. I’m always looking for budget friendly eye makeup removers. I adore Lancome Bi-Facil as much as the next girl but I hate paying $30 bucks for it. I know, I’ll spend $50 on lipstick but I carry on kicking and screaming about paying higher than $15 for eye makeup remover.

I have no idea where that mentality comes from.

But anyway, Pixi Lash Nourish Makeup Remover Pads are a mere $10 bucks and include 80 pads. Slight problem though, they are kind of small.

Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner5

I picked up the Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner earlier last week with the some other goodies from the Maybelline Summer 2016 Collection. And I even managed not to poke an eye out while using it. Yeah, that’s been known to happen on more than one occasion. I’m such a n00b with liquid eye liner! I have not, after many years of hard work, mastered it. I’m just not good with application nor have I managed to gain access to the cat eye insider’s club. I have a theory that everyone who says “the flick” is easy to achieve is actually lying to me.

Naa, seriously, I envy those who can do awesome cat eye looks with liquid liners. Personally, I don’t think I have the skill nor the right eye shape for it.

Damn!

But, I decided to give Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner a try anyway!

Maybelline Summer 2016

Maybelline Summer 2016 is arriving at drugstores and it is soooo late! Maybelline Summer 2015 arrives in stores May 5th last year but this year it was a little slow coming around but now that it is finally here I’m a happy camper as there are some fantastic makeup to look forward to from this launch all of which will be available permanently.

The most exciting piece of this collection are the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome Eyeshadows as well as the new Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint which appear to be a dupe of OCC Lip Tars. There seem to be a lot of duping of Lip Tars lately right? If you haven’t already check out my E.L.F. Lip Lacquers review as those are kind a cheap, no frills OCC RTW Lip Tar. But I digress, this is about Maybelline newness!

So, let’s take a look at Maybelline Summer 2016.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation for Summer 2016

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation

I have to admit I hate glowing foundation with a passion! Oh and concealer! Shimmer, sparkle, or glow of any kind should not be included in your concealer! It’s like putting a spotlight on your puffiness and fine lines. Thanks but no thanks! It’s one of the reasons I’ve been avoiding Amazing Concealer Illuminate! I loved their new Hydrate Concealer but I’m deadly scared that the Illuminate will be all glow-y horror show on me. I’m waiting to see it when it pops into stores as I’m hoping I’ll be proved wrong!

Foundations? Even worst. I have a round face and I always feel like glow-y foundations make my cheeks and face look plumper!

But, strobing is a way of life lately so, L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation launches at the right time as everyone wants to get their glow as much as humanly possible.

Available in 12 shades L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation promises up to 24 hours of hydrating coverage and glow. This lightweight, creamy foundation was created with dry skin in mine. It has medium coverage that provides perfecting foundation as well as an SPF 15 for sun protection.

It’s arriving soon in drugstores but if you can’t wait Ulta.com has it right this very minute.
