New Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix Foundation Stick Review & Swatches

revlon

I LOVE a stick foundation. They may seem intimidating, but they’re so easy to use. You can use them only where you need them for a quick, natural look. You can layer for additional coverage if you need a little something extra. And not to mention they’re also really portable. Revlon recently came out with their version of the stick with the PhotoReady Insta-Fix Makeup. I was on the scene at a Revlon press event last month where I got to take home some of the new products.

Anyway, so Clinique, who can count probably millions of makeup lovers who l-o-v-e their Chubby Sticks, recently came out with a cheek version–aptly called Chubby Stick Cheek (sent for review consideration).

Hopefully soon I’ll be able to take a real deal break..lol.

Tardy for the Party: Milani Rose Powder Blush Swatches and Review

So I somewhat suck because I got these in a few weeks ago (via Milani‘s PR) and took pictures as soon as I got them and then intended on reviewing them and posting while I was in the Caribbean, but that totally did NOT happen…lol. I also lost one somewhere between NYC, Trinidad, and Barbados so there’s that. SMH. But I’m really loving this year’s Rose Powder Blush collection from Milani because this year the brand went all BOLD with the colors giving us four gorgeous shades that work on all skin tones. I’m serious! They work on all skin tones especially since you can vary your application—go with one soft layer for lighter skin tones and then get all layered up and bold the darker your skin.
