Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

Hey my Curly-Fries! ❤

So, I bought this yesterday on a total impulse.

Ever since this came into stores, I’ve watched (and read) a million reviews on this stuff! I read every qualm, claim, complaint, and opinion. And I bought a tube of this stuff anyways, being same old ignorant Isabella.

So, anyway, it’s a cute product, right? You can’t deny the packaging.

The packaging is a simple tube with pink bubble lettering, but I was a total sucker for it. It looks so fresh and pretty, right?

It reads exactly: “8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfecter.

1. Blurs imperfections

2. Enhances

3. Brightens

4. Adjusts to skin-tone

5. Smooths

6. Hydrates

7. SPF 30 protects

8. 0% oils and other heavy ingredients”

Okay, first off, I will address every single one of these claims.

When I put it on, it felt super light and…kinda like a balm on my skin. Creamy and a bit tacky. Ugh. Well that’s not something I like, right off the bat.

So, the claims are pretty exaggerated, I mean, Maybelline makes it sound like the holy grail of the drugstore. It does make my skin look pretty fresh, but before I put on powder I looked QUITE dewy. And I’m not a fan of dewy.

Plus, I had to put on a few layers before it actually looked like there was anything on my skin.

I have to admit…I’m on the fence, guys! Have any of you tried this BB Cream? I’d love to hear in the comments!

TTFN. Ta-ta for now!

Milani Baked Blush Review

Hi guys!

One of my followers asked me to do a full review on a Milani Baked Blush in “Dolce Pink”, which I recently bought in a drugstore haul.

So, for starters, this is one of the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen in a blush.

Packaging is a gorgeous, signature Milani-gold compact, and the color is a less-orangey dupe for NARS Orgasm. 

I know the glitter looks terribly disco in the swatch, but it’s honestly not. My camera just picked it up more and made it look 100000 times more chunky, but in reality, it’s a subtle, fine-grained shimmer. 

Also, it blends sooo easily, and you can build up the color in a snap. It’s not too powdery, either, and it just warms up your features SUPER nicely. 

It’s sort of a soft, pink-rose color with subtle gold veining, and comes with a stumpy little blush brush I don’t plan on using any time soon. 

There’s a mirror in the bottom, too, which is super helpful for on-the-go. And, like all the Milani blush/bronzer products, the powder is domed. PLUS, it stays on all day long, even through my combo skin and sweaty work-outs.

If you want a nice, natural blush, this is great. It’s my new holy-grail, and I use it way more than any of my high-end ones. 

I might even buy a few more colors later on… ;} 

Any questions you can put in the comments! Have any of you guys tried these blushes?
