Maybelline Rocket Volum’Express Mascara Review

Ok, I’m not going to lie, I’m going to tell you straight out that the blue tube with pink writing on it forced me to buy this mascara and give it a try.  I think this is the prettiest mascara packaging!  I love blue and pink together.

Maybelline claims “Now, the most explosive, beautiful lashes ever!
Supersonic Brush, and Fast Glide formula Loads on big, sleek volume instantly”  They say we will “love it” because it will give us “8X Bigger. Smoother. Even” lashes with “zero clumps”.

Review: Physician’s Formula Super BB Cream All In One Beauty Balm

Physician’s Formula has released a BB line for Spring 2013. This post will review the Super BB All-In-One Beauty Balm Cream from that line.

I really like the packaging. Its so cute and sparkly! I’m a SUCKER FOR PACKAGING!! I like that its in a tube as well. It keeps the product sanitary. For me there is nothing worse than having to stick my fingers in a pot. Its like a petri dish!

Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

L’Oreal has really shocked me, in a good way, with one of their new releases.  Its the L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain.  I was at Ulta and was very intrigued when I saw the new display.  I grabbed 2 colors to give it a try.

When I got to the car I noticed 2 things. The first thing I noticed was that the applicator was virtually the same as the YSL Glossy Stains.  The second thing I noticed was that they smelled virtually the same too. Continue reading Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses

Benefit has added a new gloss to match their best selling boxed blushes. I just love the blushes so, of course, I had to try their namesakes’ matching glosses. Check it out!

The glosses come in squeeze tubes. They are decorated to match their coordinating blush. They all have a cherry sent with a slight cherry flavor. They are slick glosses and have a little stick, but not much at all.

Bella Bomba is a gorgeous rosey red, Coralista is a beautiful hot coral color, Dandelion is a shimmery peach shade, SugarBomb is a mauve shade with shimmer and Dallas is a gorgeous nude. They are all beautiful! Hula is also available.

I purchased these from HSN, but I saw the full sized glosses in Ulta the other day. They retail for $16 each and the travel set retails for $26. A full sized gloss is .05 oz and the travel glosses are.22 ozs each. You can order the full size glosses from www.benefit.com, www.ulta.com, www.sephora.com and www.hsn.com. You can also purchase them at Ulta and Sephora stores.

Review: Maybelline Spring 2012 Bouncy Bronzers and Illuminators

Maybelline has launched their Spring 2012 collection. It includes 2 Bouncy Bronzers and 2 Illuminators.

The bronzers come in two colors, Glistening Sun and Sun Glow. I did not like the Bouncy Bronzers. They have a little shimmer, which I didn’t find bothersome, but what I didn’t like about them was that both of them had a strong orange undertone. Not flattering!! Bronzers should look natural. I love the “bouncy” formula as far as texture. The bronzers are not long wearing. Just like the bouncy blushes, they have about a 4 hour wear.

The Illuminators are really good for a drugstore formula. They come in Ray of Gold (yellow) and Blissful Pink (pink)  They are not as finely milled as a high end highlighter.  They are a little chunky and they have some micro glitter.  The yellow one looked flat out yellow on my skin.  It is not a golden color.  The pink one has a really pretty hue to it.  I liked it. If you don’t want to put a lot of money into an illuminator, this is your product.  They run around $9.

So, what do you think?  Have you picked them up and if so, what are your thoughts. If not, are you going to add these to your collection?  I’d love to know!!
