Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Coolers

Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Coolers

Are you a fan of greek yogurt? Well Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Coolers contain actual Greek yogurt as well as many other yummy ingredients.

There is a long-standing Greek tradition of applying yogurt to alleviate dry or sunburned skin. It’s a centuries old remedy and contains proteins, minerals and vitamins that help with short and long-term moisturization.

The Lip Coolers come in four shades: Raspberry, Strawberry, Peach and an un-tinted one called Plain (get it? Plain yogurt!).

They come in a really pretty printed tube and the applicator is a little different as well. It has a cooling metal ball which really does make your lips feel cool and soothed as you are applying it.

Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm

Almay Color Care Liquid Lip Balm

Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm is new this summer and comes in ten shades.

So this is my first experience with an Almay lip product I think! Isn’t that weird? These Liquid Lip Balms are just that – they have the conditioners that a lip balm has but also the shine and fun colors of a lip gloss. They contain vitamin E, avocado oil and a blend of “exotic” nourishing oils as well.

They are hypoallergenic, gluten-free and dermatologist tested.

Jordana Powder Blush Swatches and Review

Jordana Blush Powder

Jordana Powder Blush is new and comes in twelve bright fun shades.

These soft velvet-like blushes are super soft and really nicely pigmented. They come in more natural subdued shades as well as some super bright cheery ones.

They come in little silver mirrored compacts with a screw-off lid. Hmm that sounds bad, doesn’t it? The lids screw off? Nah. The lids come undone by slowly unscrewing them. Howabout the tops come off with a screw-like mechanism?

You get the point.

Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection for Summer 2013

Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection

What up party people? Hope your Friday is going swimmingly thus far. I’m so glad it’s Friday aren’t you? It’s been a long hellishly hot week in the Bay Area this week. And by hot I don’t mean 78 degrees. Most people think San Francisco/Bay Area peeps are weather wimps (and we kinda are when it comes to cold weather) but I mean 95-100 at my house. Blech! I love me some hot weather but let’s try keeping it around 80-85 ok?

Speaking of hotness the new Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection for summer 2013 features five new hot creme shades. It’s been a really long time since I reviewed Barielle. Maybe even three years?! They kind of fell off my radar but I think they are making somewhat of a comeback now.

The formula of these five was really, really good. Their cremes are really thick, but not in a bad way. They cover like a dream and you only need one to two coats. Fabulous!
