MAC Dare Hue Brow Pencils Bring a Little Color to Your Brows

Dominic Skinner, Senior Artist for MAC Cosmetics UK, posted images of the new MAC Dare Hue Brow Pencils on his Instagram today. Did you read about my Benefit Brow Experience? If so, you already know I avoid brow powders and brow gels like the plague. My brows are just too thick already and they really don’t need a helping hand.

I’m not sure how I feel about the Dare Hue Pencils for myself but I imagine some people are going to really, really like the idea and concept behind these.

MAC is launching these yummies in six yummy pastel ice cream inspired shades with the Soft Serve Collection that will be available June 2nd.

Shades include:

  • Violet Infused (soft lavender)
  • Blonde Not Bland (pastel peach)
  • Pink Confetti (pastel pink)
  • Frisky Fresh (soft mint green)
  • What a Highlight (soft white gold highlighter)
  • Clearly Groomed (nudey beige)

I imagine if you’re currently rocking a pastel shade of hair these will be quite a nice way and easy way to get matching color on your brows!

I kind of find myself wishing they were available in more vibrant shades like some sort of super pigmented aqua. Of course, I’d likely never wear them but I still kind of want to see how an aqua would look!

What do you think of these pencils?

Highlight Yourself Happy with L’Oreal’s New Summer 2016 Lumi Collection

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

L'Oreal's New Summer 2016 Lumi 1

For Summer 2016, L’Oreal has a repromote display featuring the new True Match Lumi Cushion paired up with True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminators, Powder Glow Illuminators, Magic Lumi Concealer, and Magic Lumi Primer.

I think I’m getting old as I can’t recall seeing the primer before this and I know the concealers were floating around a year or two ago but not sure if they are permanent.

I know a lot of people really like this collection so seems about right to promote it with L’Oreal’s new cushion foundation. But yeah, I’ll say it again, I wish it was their cushion blushes….!

Hopefully those arrive soon in the US!

New Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Summer 2016

Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream

Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Summer 2016 hits drugstores this month with a new matte finish formula ideal for oily skin types. Remember when Covergirl was trying to toss off their tinted moisturizer formula for a BB Cream a few years ago!? Oh the confusion! It sounds like they might have repackaged their Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation for this launch but perhaps the coverage is sheerer.

It’s available in five shade selections and will be $8.99 when it hits drugstores or can be purchased now at

You can expect a lot more from Covergirl for Summer 2016 so stay tuned. But more importantly, I want to know whatever happened to those cool sphere lip balms they were supposed to launch!?

Almay Age Essentials Collection for Summer 2016

Almay Age Essentials

Almay Age Essentials Concealer, Almay Age Essentials Lip Treatment, and Almay Age Essentials Foundation are launching now for Summer 2016 at drugstores as part of a new Almay Age Essentials Collection.

People, I’ve been noticing my lips have not only been dry lately but kind of old looking too! Yeah, not sure what’s going on there! Hopefully just dryness! The Age Essentials Lip Treatment, of course, came home with me because it contains an SPF 30 plus it promises to hydrate my tired lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines! Dunno, if it’ll help but here’s hoping! I’ve been using it for the past week so I should have a review shortly on it!

And you may have guessed it already, I did indeed grab up the concealer too! It’s a stick concealer and for some reason it reminds me of Covergirl + Olay Concealer Balm that released in Summer 2014. It’s available in four shades.

I didn’t pick up the new foundation as the shades looked pretty dark! Apparently this is a moisturizing anti-aging makeup with an SPF 15. I’m not sure about the anti-aging ingredients but it may prove a good pick for those of us with drier skin!

Anything you see from the new Almay Age Essentials Collection worth picking up?

The collection is launching now in stores!

Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Contouring and Highlighting Duo for Summer 2016

Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Contouring and Highlighting Duo

Well, you knew it was only a matter time before the contouring trend hit the drugstore! Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Contouring and Highlighting Duo for Summer 2016 have arrived just in time to embrace the never dying out trend of contouring and highlighting yourself to perfection.

This new duo contains the Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Stick in Fair, Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Deep, or Deep paired up with a matching Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick (the highlighters appear to be either a champagne pink shade, a champagne gold, or a brassy bronze gold) that when used together can sculpt, define, and highlight your face easily.

The duo set is $16.99 at Harmons and Bed, Bath, and Beyond but I imagine once it hits mass drugstores it’ll likely be around $17-$18.99.

It’s an interesting concept that should go over well with those who are embracing the contouring trend at the moment. I really liked the Insta-Fix when it launched 2 years ago so I’m wondering if the formula is the same or perhaps a bit creamier for contouring work!

The Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Contouring and Highlighting Duo is popping up now at drugstores.

What do you think of the duo?

Picking it up?
