BB Cream: Garnier Skin Renew

January 28, 2012

20

I picked up a Garnier BB Cream (in light/medium) from Rite Aid with very low expectations. I don’t usually have luck with drugstore brands when it comes to colored products for the skin like foundation, concealer, powders, etc. I bought it anyway so that I could do a review on it for everything else but […]

I’ve never finished a shadow except for this one (pictured on right)… my all time favorite: Laneige (Design Eyeshadow in #203). I wore it everyday and went through it like that (*snapping fingers). It’s simply perfect…  creamy consistency, a sheer champagne color with subtle gold glitter. This alone on my lids always made me feel […]

After seeing countless reviews on CoastalScents.com shadow palettes, I decided to order a few items and test them out for myself. I purchased the 78 Shadow Blush Palette from Coastal Scents for $18.95 and honestly expected the palette to be unusable and/or poor quality. I’m happy to report that Coastal Scents proved me wrong! It’s […]

I feel like I’ve been playing hide and seek with these eye shadows… them hiding, me seeking. Finally got some to test out! I’ll keep this post short and sweet. Mostly pictures.

We’ll all wrinkle one day (hopefully a long long time from now)… but I’d like to discuss premature aging and wrinkling caused by facial expressions, as well as what we can do about it… Remember what your mother said when you made ugly faces? She probably told you to “Stop making those faces or it’ll […]

I recently picked up 2 Color Tattoos by Maybelline and put it to the test. Would it really last 24 hours? Here are the 2 colors I purchased.
