Product Review: LUSH Twilight Bath Ballistic

Sunday, December 30, 2012
Even from a very young age I’ve been completely enamored by fancy schmancy bath products. Bath bombs, bath oils, bubble bath, bath salts (the non-zombifying kind of course)… I love them all. This little fizzing baby is NO exception. Twilight series? I’ll pass. Twilight bath bomb? I’ll take 10,000! 
The Twilight bath bomb is actually pretty big. Size wise it’s somewhere between a baseball and a softball (definitely leaning more towards the softball). The outer shell is pink with flecks of yellow and the top has raised stars and a moon to emulate the night sky. Under the top layer (and not pictured) is a smaller blue bath bomb.

Drugstore Sightings vol. 2!

Thursday, December 20, 2012
I've had ample opportunity to creep around a few stores this week and these are my findings!

Fred Meyers:

L'Oreal True Match Concealer Pencils.

L'Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara.

About Damn Time: BB Creams are no longer exclusive to pale people, thanks to IMAN!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
BB Creams have deep roots in fairer skinned areas of the globe, and even with the introduction of them into the slightly more varied US market there isn't much luck for POC to find their shade since our cosmetic companies here are geared more towards caucasians. Cue IMAN and her brand new line of BB Creams:

Six colors ranging from relatively light to a gorgeous deep? I think someone just won a gold star!

Product Review: L'Oreal Shine Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Everlasting Caramel

Monday, December 17, 2012
 I am completely drawing a blank on how to start this review other than "WOW"! I honestly think that I've found my holy grail stain... or holy grail gloss... or however you wish to classify it.

The packaging is a light weight and highly reflective gold colored plastic that doesn't photograph easily with a phone because you're a moron that left her DSLR at home before going on vacation. Since it's so shiny it is also pretty prone to finger smudges and whatnot. I think that the packaging is really sleek and somewhat hinting at luxury. The applicator is a marquise shaped doe foot with a hollowed center which (as seen below) holds product. 

First Impressions: L'Oreal Shine Caresse Glosses

Sunday, December 16, 2012
I've been eagerly awaiting the release of these supposed YSL Glossy Stain dupes since I heard whispers about them from France so Imagine my glee when I saw this at my local Fred Meyer late last week:

Aww yiss!

For the record, I'm super impressed by the shade selection! There are 12 shades which I think is pretty impressive for a brand new and innovative product launch. 

Drugstore Sightings vol. 1!

Saturday, December 15, 2012
I had a few minutes to check out my Local Fred Meyer last night and it was pretty much New Displays City in there! I had a blast walking through the isles and checking out the new products, some of which I haven't even seen on other blogs!

Needless to say, I did go a little crazy (but only a little) here and at Rite Aid, and just after I've freshly destashed my makeup collection. Unfortunately I didn't have the foresight of snapping a few pictures of what was new at my local Rite Aid, but the only things that I noticed were different were the new Essie Holiday collection and the Revlon Nearly Naked line.

New L'Oreal products:

L'Oreal Visible lift foundation and blush.

Cheap, Cheaper, and Cheapest; Vampy Lips

Thursday, December 13, 2012
Vampy lips are HOT, but they can run you a pretty penny. As much as I love me some high end products (e.g. Dior Addict lipstick in Perfecto which is... well, Perfecto) there are much cheaper alternatives bound to fit into any budget.


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry, $8.29-$5.94

(Not particularly) Hot Off the Presses! New Urban Decay Setting Sprays!

Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Here we are with some more news about Urban Decay. Wow... huge surprise when you look at my blog history, but I digress. Let's get to the content, shall we?

Urban Decay showcased the brand new packaging for their popular setting sprays via the company Instagram account earlier this morning:

It looks pretty spiffy, no? They've certainly toned down the packaging, and even though streamlined and duo-toned really isn't the Urban Decay Way, I'm kind of digging it! It looks like the spray nozzles are the same manual ones that they've had, but wouldn't it be awesome to get a setting spray spray can?
