L'OREAL Magic BB Cream

BB Creams! They have been all the hype recently, and I have had the luxury to try out the new L'oreal Magic BB Cream. This is the 2nd one that I've tried, and I am liking it pretty well! (I will include before and after pictures soon.)

     The new L'oreal Magic BB Cream comes in 4 shades; fair, light, medium, deep. I tried the shade in light. It is a white liquid with visible grains inside. The texture is also pretty gritty, which I found interesting. The formula is was also pretty runny.
     I use about a quarter size amount, and while smoothing it over my face the beads dissolved. I noticed that it definitely made my skin tone look more even. I have really dark circles and some acne scars, unevenness and some redness, and although it didn't cover it entirely (It is a BB cream, not a concealer/foundation), it definitely made my skin look a lot better and more presentable.
     It felt very light, and blends extremely well. It has a light smell, which I can't entirely describe but kind of smells powdery to me. It also leaves a light, dewy finish.

 I received a complimentary product from SheSpeaks/L'OrĂ©al to facilitate this review

Red Velvet Wasteland

Gray Beanie (Anthem Made)
Half Moon Sweater (Evil Twin)
Velvet Leggings (Can be found HERE)
Skull Litas (Jeffrey Campbell)

I am just in love with velvet leggings. I am obsessed with the texture they hold; such a visual sheen and physically soft and alluring. This sweater is also one of my faves! I definitely need more pieces from Evil Twin. & these skull Litas...I found for $50 on clearance at Urban Outfitters! Score of a lifetime.

Swatches: Milani Color Statement Lipsticks Pinks & Corals

 I know this is mostly a fashion blog, but I know a lot of you also love makeup :) I am swatching the pinks/corals today, but will be doing other products & colors from the collection in future posts. Here are some quick facts and my opinions about the lipsticks:

-Retails for $5.49 each.
-Sold at local drugstores and retailers, such as Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc.!
-Super pigmented and glides on smooth. (In my opinion, bolder and more pigmented than old formula!)
-Round shape (compared to geometric shape of old formula) and shiny, gold mirrored packaging with color indicator and name/# on bottom.
