Revlon Photoready Airbrush Foundation; Review & Swatches of Shades

Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation; SPF 20 Liquid Makeup
Reformulated for Spring 2015
Price: $13-$15 per ounce


Revlon is revamping their "Photoready" line up of products. They finished out 2014 with the release of their Photoready Insta-Fix Foundation Stick & their Photoready Anti-Shine Balm. 

They discontinued their Photoready Airbrush Mousse Foundation & Photoready Foundation but instead of scratching the two off their roster they sort of merged the two and named it the "Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation."

Price: $.99- $19.99

The mainstream cosmetic companies (like L'Oreal, CoverGirl, Maybelline, Revlon, Almay, Rimmel, Milani, Physicians Formula & Wet 'n Wild) have already gone all out for their 2015 collections and we're only in the second week of January!

Granted, not all of the new foundations, concealers, eye shadows, lip sticks & glosses are going to be hits (in fact more than a few are downright misses), but the sheer amount of products that each brand has released so far is really impressive and a little overwhelming...

Wet 'n Wild Come Correct Concealer; Review & Swatches of Shades

Fergie & Wet 'n Wild Come Correct (Full Cover) Celebrity Concealer
New for Spring 2015
Price: $5 for 10 ml
(approx $.50 per ml)


Wet 'n Wild has recently released their new Come Correct Concealer which is a part of Fergie's "Glam-Maker" collection.

Let's face it; Wet 'n Wild has never really excelled with concealers like they do with eye & lip color. Up until now, the only concealers in their stable were the CoverAll Concealer Stick & the CoverAll Liquid Wand Concealer. 

Both of these concealers leave something to be desired so I think that my initial skepticism was warranted when I saw the new Come Correct Concealer.

Luckily, (for those of us who have been waiting for this type of concealer to be available in drugstores), I have never been happier to report just how wrong my initial impressions were!

Come Correct promises celebrity worthy results & ultimate full coverage for under-eye darkness and it achieves both of these brilliantly, BUT, even the most perfect product isn't for everyone...

CoverGirl UltraSmooth Foundation; Review & Swatches of Shades

CoverGirl UltraSmooth Foundation
New for Spring 2015
Price: $15-17 per ounce

CoverGirl's new UltraSmooth Foundation promises to be life changing makeup that will minimize the appearence of facial hair with a revolutionary new applicator.

There are certainly some benefits to the new concept but (like most foundations) it won't be the one-size-fits-all liquid makeup for everyone.

If you're curious about trying the new "ultra smooth" foundation, keep reading to see if it's right for you!
