Garnier B.B Cream Review

I was excited to finally see an affordable and easily accessible bb cream on the market here in the States. This tube was sent to me by BzzAgent.

What it says it does:
Renews radiance
Brightens your complexion
Evens skin tone and blurs imperfections
Hydrated for 24 hrs
Protects against UVA & UVB rays with SPF 15

What I like:
It goes on like a moisturizer
Has a dewy finish
Evens skin tone

What I don't like:
The scent. Smells like Garnier shampoo which I think is too strong for the face
While certain areas of my face did look glowy, it also enhanced my dry areas
Didn't cover blemishes, instead I think it made them more prominent : /
Didn't cover redness
Only two color options, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark
Medium to Dark was a tad to dark for me will work for me in the summer

The only way for this to work for me is if I wore it with a moisturizer underneath and concealer on top, which is what I do with foundation. I was hoping this would be all that wrapped into one product.
I can see this working for those who have great skin and just want a dewy glow. 
 Here you can still see the red blotch on my cheek:

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
