i pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. i simply follow my own feelings.

Before I start today's post, I just wanted to acknowledge the whole GFC debacle! From what I understand, Google Reader will be gone after July 1st. I'm not entirely sure how this will affect people using Blogger and GFC, so if you've got a better grasp on this, please fill me in!

At any rate, I have already imported all of the blogs that I follow on my Google Reader to BlogLovin' - which you can do here. If you're not already following me on BlogLovin', I'd really appreciate it if you did - just to be safe! 

Now, with that business out of the way....
 

I may or may not be a makeup junkie. Either I'm given makeup for gifts (most likely from my mom!) or I buy it myself. Whatever the case may be - I have a lot. The thing is that I love trying out new products. There is something fun about searching for the perfect (insert-prooduct-here). It may or may not be an addiction.

With that said, I have a few new makeup products to review today! Here goes...

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer: Radiance
I was given this foundation primer by my mom for Christmas and have been using it on and off since then. Overall, I have mixed feelings about it. I love the texture of the primer and the sheer glow that it leaves on the skin. The scent is light, fresh, and quite nice, actually. This primer really does leave a nice glowy finish on the skin - living up to the radiance claim in the name. However, for me, I found this didn't help to even out my skin all that well or make my foundation last longer. I was a little disappointed, though this is not a bad product. For me, this simply didn't live up to my expectations.

Rimmel Moisture Renew: 300 Rose Blush
Lately, I've been looking for some natural, every day lipstick shades. When I came across this Rimmel one in Rose Blush, I was immediately taken by the shade. It is a deep, warm pink that is totally wearable but still leaves an impact. In terms of the shade? I love it. However, I didn't find this lipstick at all moisturizing, despite the name. If you have dry lips like I do, I'd suggest wearing a balm over top.

Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte: 102 Rossetto
What appeared to be a soft pink turned out to be a fun, bold, and vibrant pink. Even though it wasn't what I expected when I looked at the lipstick, I love this. It is girly and cute and I can see this lipstick shade being absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer. I love that the lipstick is matte and the packaging is really sleek, like everything from the Kate Moss line. Oddly enough, I actually found this lipstick to glide better on the lips than the Moisture Renew lipstick I mentioned above. Overall, I was really impressed with this lipstick. It's taking all of my willpower not to pick up a few other shades!

What makeup products have you tried lately? Have you tried any of these products?

  16. It's simple, Google+Circle is replacing Google Friends Connect. Same little box with all our faces except it says "Add to Circles" instead of Follow. Go into your Layout, click on Add Elment, and you should see "google+circle" just click to add element.

  17. I just bought that Kate Moss x Rimmel lipstick and I love it! It's bold in subtle way and still looks natural. I'm actually quite a huge fan of Rimmel, especially their nail polishes--their flat brushes make for perfectly easy application for a lazy person like myself! :P
