Want that just tanned glow without baking in the sun? All you have to do is Go Faux it! Newly released exclusively for the month of May is the Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzing collection. The Dream Sun Bronzing Collection contains three must have pressed bronzing powders for every skin tone along with a Dream Sun Bronzing Face Illuminator.
Bronzers are one of my must have products for Spring and Summer. There is absolutely no excuse for your skin to look pale and dull when you have great products like these around. Each bronzing powder offers a different level of glow so you can really shine bright during the day or your cheeks can look as if they’ve only seen a glimpse of the sun. I like to mix and match the three in order to create my own custom glow!
Dream Sun Bronzing Powder Glow 100 is described as offering a touch of shimmer that is perfect for cheekbones and brow bones or it can be used to add a touch of sultriness to shoulders, and collar bones. This color is available in Light to Medium
Dream Sun Bronzing Powder Matte 130 creates a natural sun-kissed glow in a matte finish. This product is perfect for all over bronzing as well as using it in the T-zone as a faint highlight
Dream Sun Bronzing Powder Four Seasons 150 is my absolute favorite of the group. It’s a unique, multi-tonal palette that reates a customized bronzed look. Notice there is a range of shades on this particular palette that go from light to dark.
I swatched each palette below, My favorite is the Four Seasons palette (150) because I can mix and create my own custom bronzer. My next favorite would be the Glow Palette (100), this is awesome palette to use if you want to add an intense glow to your cheek bones. I would use the Matte Palette on the body as opposed to the face since the shimmer is very light.
The Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzers are LIMTED EDITION items and can be found in stores exclusively during the month of may. I’ve seen these so far in Rite Aid. If you’ve used these let me know which is your favorite and how you like to wear it.
Today I have for you the new summer Limited Edition Color Sensational High Shine Lip gloss in Coral Heat. Coral is a great color for spring and summer. It can be bright and inviting or cool and mellow. I would describe Coral Heat as a cool toned lip gloss that leans more to the orange side.
Coral Heat is Semi pigmented and if you have lips that are pigmented it will give your lips a slight stain over a true color.
I decided to pair it with Shocking Coral from the Maybelline Vivids collection and the color pay off was more a Coral Pink then a Orange Coral.
I picked up Coral Rush from Rite Aid during their Maybelline BOGO. It usually retails for $7.49 full price.
Check out my review on another Maybelline Summer Limited Edition High Shine Gloss in Rose Lust.
Maybelline was BOGO this week at CVS, Rite Aid and WalGreens so I picked up a few shades of the Color Sensational High Shine Lip gloss. Each Lip gloss cost $7.49 and there are six shades in this limited edition collection.
Maybelline describes the Color Sensational High Shine Lip gloss as:
· Wax-free gloss delivers pure color for saturated look with a creamier feel and the ultimate shine
· Contains honey nectar to nourish lips
Packaging: A rectangular slender tube with a silver cap. That’s basically it. The packaging was pretty minimal. I would have loved to see the Maybelline Logo or maybe some type of design. However, this type of packaging is beneficial because you can actually see the color and not have to peer past any semi translucent labels.
Rose Lust is a deep pinkish red that is very well pigmented. The high shine description is right on point. My lips were very shiny and also moisturized. Honestly they were almost a bit too shiny. Of course this is nothing a little blotting wont fix. This lip gloss would look great over Vivid Rose from the Color Sensational Vivids Collection.
Notice how pigmented it is on my lips without lipstick! Rose Lust is a limited edition color of the Summer Collection so if you want it you better act fast! Have you picked up any of the Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip gloss? Which one is your favorite?
