If you are a fellow beauty junkie, you can relate when I say that sometimes it seems like nothing new has come out. Many times it feels like new product releases are just a way to release an old product in new packaging. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chromes ($10 each) are the refreshing change I have been craving. They are long-wearing liquid eyeshadows that pack a punch of shiny color.
NYX Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo is a two-in-one cream product containing both a highlighter and contour shade. The formula is not as emollient as the type of cream product you’d find in a pan but it offers a finish that looks more like skin than a powder. It doesn’t smell fragranced but it does have a very mild paint-like smell that I did not find noticeable during normal use.
Physicians Formula Cushion Foundation is talc-free, has SPF 50 broad spectrum sunscreen in the form of 8.4% titanium dioxide, and 3.95% zinc oxide. It doesn’t smell like anything to me. It comes in 3 shades, contains 0.47 fl oz / 14 mL, which is about half of what you get in a typical bottle of foundation and retails for about $16.
The Tarte Tartelette in Bloom palette is the sequel to the original Tartelette palette with a different assortment of neutral shades plus a few shimmers. The way the palette is arranged, the top row generally consists of grey-toned shades, the middle row yellow-toned shades, and the bottom row pink-toned shades and each row has a shimmery shade that complements the matte shades. You can mix them any way you want but this makes it really easy to pick up and quickly put together a look.
My next Glossybox has shipped and I’m just now getting this post out!!! Ugh. This box as a whole didn’t really pique my interest that much and a couple of the items seem like they might be difficult to track down or purchase, at least if you are in the United States. I was excited to try the mask, though, and it didn’t disappoint.
