I just spotted the new Bobbi Brown Essential 5-in-1 Face Palette online. It’s an all-in-one palette featuring everything you need for perfect skin in a snap. Sounds tempting, but I had a recent disappointment with Bobbi Brown Instant Full Coverage Concealer (review). I’m still searching for the next best concealer so this palette came up. What do you think ladies?

Bobbi Brown Instant Full Coverage Concealer ($30.00 / £23.00 for 6 ml / .20 fl oz) was designated for me in the shade Cool Sand. I actually went to Bobbi Brown’s boutique in Covent Garden to try it out and be matched for my perfect shade. Apart from having a bad experience at the shop (that’s another story) I can’t say the shade was a perfect match for me. Continue Reading
I’d better have my money ready for the new Giorgio Armani My Armani to Go Cushion Foundation when it launches. Since my skin discovered the best-selling Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (review) I’ve tried almost all of the brand’s foundation. I love a light texture with a natural coverage and lightweight feel. I’ve been using Giorgio Armani Power Fabric (upcoming review) foundation since it launched and I can say is the only full coverage foundation that I like.

I discovered Aveeno active naturals products thanks to my friend Gio from Beautiful with Brains, who sent me the moisturizing lotion, last year, to try it out. Once I like it a lot and it came natural to wanna try out more Aveeno products. I know I’ll be using Aveeno Active Naturals a lot from now on so I wanted to share with you what I’m currently using. I admit that I wasn’t use to pay much attention of my body skin and use lotions, body creams and hand creams that often.
Well things have dramatically changed in the past three months. I can’t say that I’m applying body lotions daily but I’m proud of my progress and I do pamper my skin about three times a week. I like to use body mists a lot (I’m quite abusing them in the summer) so after shower this how I’m hydrating my body, especially if I’m in a rush.

I got this shade along with other MustaeV products (swatches) back in March and took it with me to London. With Gold my MustaeV Color Powder Starlight collection is complete, as this one the only shade I was missing. You can check out my reviews for the other shades in Pink, Opal, Champagne Moonlight Powder and White Moonlight Powder.
