Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Blush2

Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Blush ($24) arrives just in time for Summer 2016 and joins the Frog Prince family that includes a new sparkling lipgloss and the cult favorite transforming lipstick.

I would just like to express how I ran around in circles and squealed when I heard about Frog Prince Blush. I just love the idea of having a matching shade of blush to go along with my beloved Frog Prince Lipstick.

This enchanting green shade of gel blush tinges your cheeks a delightful shade of Shrek green so, you can feel as glamorous as Princess Fiona! I’m kidding, I’m kidding! But I suspect it is the shade of pretty pink that tinges Fiona’s flawless green complexion!

This little blush comes housed in a pink metallic palette with a mirror and weights in at 0.7 oz. It might be green but it won’t turn you green. Unfortunately, because I had a brief moment where I was like, “Wow, wouldn’t green blush totally be cool!” After that I had a flash of, “Yeah, you’d look like the dork you are wearing green blush…!” No need to bring more attention to the fact I’m already a dork right? 🙂

Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact Review & Swatches

Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact1

Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($35) is a new BB cushion that launched for Summer 2016 that provides weightless coverage, SPF 50 protection, and a lasting matte finish to keep skin flawless and beautiful.

Cushion foundations and makeup are becoming increasing popular here in the US and I personally love seeing the evolution of the trend here on my home turf. You might recall Clinique was one of the first brands to introduce their Age Defense BB Cream to the beauty market when BB Creams were just gaining their footing here in the US. With the popularity of their Cheek Pop Blushes I don’t doubt that at some point we just might get a cushion blush from them as well!

It’s always nice to see Clinique embracing current trends because in most cases they get these trends right and that’s the case with their new Super City Block BB Cushion Compact. This isn’t a cushion makeup they just slapped together and quickly brought to market to appease a trend. There’s a good deal of thought that went into it and that shows in the formula and performance of the cushion.

Supernatural Rowena’s Makeup Possibly Revealed?

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

I was talking on the phone with Dusty a few months ago and we got into a conversation about how fine Rowena from Supernatural looks. If you’re not a Supernatural fan girl or guy you likely have no idea what I’m talking about but for those who are I’m sure at some point you were left wondering what makeup Rowena was wearing. This is particularly the case for her eye makeup because that girl sports some fantastic eyeshadow looks!

At one point, I felt positive she was wearing Urban Decay Mildew Eyeshadow as across a few episodes she had on this stunning sparkly olive green on her eyes that flattered her creamy skin and gorgeous red hair perfectly.

In more recent, episodes you’ll catch her wearing a fuchsia and purple blue look.

I have to admit I’ve mused what Alanna Masterson wore on Talking Dead and Mercedes Mason’s might be wearing but Rowena aka Ruthie Connell beats both of them out with her dramatic eye looks.

If you follow the Darkness aka Amara aka Emily Swallow on Twitter she actually retweets a lot of makeup tidbits about Supernatural. Recently, she disclosed the shade of greige nail polish she was wearing when stroking Dean’s face. Hey, you know you likely had a brief moment where you wish that was you stroking Dean’s fast but the thought was super quickly overtaken by, “OMG THAT NAIL POLISH IS SO FLEEK!”

Up until now mum has been the word on Rowena’s makeup but recently the makeup artist for Supernatural shared a little bit of what might be on her eyes. Looks like Make Up For Ever and Charlotte Tilbury are two names mentioned. Hm..! There goes my theory about Urban Decay!
