~Real Spotted~ New Summer L'Oreal, Revlon, and Sally Hansen.....

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

I did little drugstore crawling on last Saturday...Didn't see much, I was looking for the new JulieG polishes. But I did spot some other collections...Check it out!!

Finally spotted the Avril Lavigne Salon Effects( still looking for the Prabal Gurung Salon Effects collex). She's stuck in the year 2000 with those!
But I did like the one called Crowd Surfer...looks like an ombre glitter....
Spotted L'Oreal yearly summer collection of  Sublime Bronze. The silver glitter polish looked interesting. Like a glitter inside a cream. I might pick it up if its still there when I go back. Other than that, I don't need another bronzer!! LOL!
Looks like Revlon is doing more scented polish. Why? Is there demand for them? *shrugs* LOL!

Have you seen any of these collections?

~My Favorite Bronzers!!!~

Hi Everyone!! I thought I would do another "My Favorites..." This time its bronzers. I know that I'm of the caramel persuasion but I like bronzers for a variety of makeup uses...

Here are my six favorite bronzers ( as of May 2012:)) and how I use them when I use them!!

Tarte Hotel Heiress- I've been wearing HH for years, at least since 2008 and have had several of these bronzers. Its a great all over bronzer, giving me a hint of color and glow. I just found also that its an AMAZING crease/transition color, thank to LipSh0ck on YouTube! She blew my mind with that one!

Revlon Mineral Finishing Powder in Suntan Matte- I slept on this one for a while, only buying it because it was clearanced. It was another Youtuber( I forget the video) that used it as a setting powder to her foundation. Its perfect for setting because its matte and doesn't pick up alot of color on a regular powder brush.
Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze- Great contouring color for my skin.

Tarte Blush in Exposed- I know Exposed is a blush but its great for creating glowy cheek bones and subtle highlighting.

Caboodles Sunkissed Bronzing Face Powder in Hawaii- I got this at a dollar store and it was a gem of a find! It has a perfect match to my skin with golden shimmer to it.
Wet N' Wild ColorIcon Bronzer in Bikini Contest- Bikini Contest is a perfect match to my skin. I've raved about this bronzer before, literally days after I bought it!!!

I normally use a blush brush to apply bronzer. For me, I can control how much I put on with a small brush and not overloading my face like some bigger brushes do.

Brushes: Tarte Cheek Blush Brush and BDellium 964.
