A wee bit of an update....

Life has been busy...haven't been blogging because of that. Work has been busy....super.. Then my parents went off on their I have a bit of peace and quiet....and then the worst happen: computer crashed and then found out it can't be fixed:(
So, this means blogging will be on hold indefinitely. I'm quite sad because I have a lot to blog about.
Yup, just tried and i can't upload any photos.

Ok....well I'll do my best without photos.

If you read my last blog post, I bought a few drugstore makeup. One of the things that I was excited to try was the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream.

Why I love this B.B.Cream:
-I found a shade that suits me: Medium Deep. Had a hard time trying out most BB Creams because they tend to have lighter shades and not deeper shades.
-comes with SPF15
-Comes in 2 shades: light/Medium and Medium/Deep
-evens out my skin
-I have not broken out...yay!

In summary, I absolutely love this. I bought it at Wagreens for $12.99. I've been wearing this for the last 2 weeks. It's great for when you're in a hurry and want light, natural coverage.

As far as application, I use Sigma's Angled Top Kabuki F84 brush. The brush is dense and quite full but it applies the product really well and the brush is soo soft. Recently I have also used the MAC 130 brush. You can use your fingers too but I prefer to use brush.

Have you tried this?

Till next time!
Xoxo, Lynn

New Drugstore Beauty Buys: L'oreal, Maybelline, Wet 'n Wild + Garnier BB Cream

My first blog of the year! I think I'm off to a good start:)
Anyway, a recent trip to Walgreens and Rite Aid resulted in purchasing some new items - which I'm very excited about! Below are some of the items I picked up. I will post a review and more photos and swatches as soon as I've had a chance to try them. 

Let's start with the most anticipated eyeshadow release. It's the L'oreal 24 Hour Infallible Eye Shadow. I heard that this is dupe to the Georgio Armani Eyes to Kill eyeshadow. I can't wait to try these. I don't have the Armani eyeshadows-  so I hope that this is a good dupe for it. These eye shadows are part of the Infallible Never Fail Makeup Collection. This collection is suppose to deliver long wear capability with a comfortable lightweight feel. I bought 6 colors- so we'll see how these shadows wear.

Maybelline also came out with new shadows. These are the Color Tattoo 24 Hour eye shadows. I bought 4 basic colors. These have the same concept as that of the L'oreal Infallible shadows. I can't wait to test these out to see how they wear as well. I might come back for the Teal and Emerald color - love brights for Spring.

I also picked up the Color Riche Balm with SPF 15. I picked up three and I'm curious to see how they wear and overall feel and consistency of these. I like the fact that there's SPF with these balms. I'm definitely going to do a comparison review with the very popular Revlon Color Burst Lip Balm. Stay Tuned! There weren't much left to choose from when I bought these at Rite Aid - I did pick up the colors I knew I would wear.

Wet 'n Wild also came out with some new polishes. These are very basic and probably dupable color but I like them anyway.

The most exciting product I wanted to try and would probably do a thorough review at the end of the month is the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in Medium/Deep. I've been wanting to try BB Creams for a long time except that the shades available doesn't suit my tan/olive skin tone. Tried these out today and so far I like it- review coming up....

So, I hope everyone is having an awesome first day of the year! Stay tuned for a review of the above items!

Talk soon! LynnGa
