Hello again my loves. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day, and please feel free to tell me all about how you’ve been lately in the comments! And I promise you don’t have to be shy, I don’t bite very hard lol.
So to start out the blogging week, I’m coming to you all with 3 new makeup reviews on products that I just recently added to my collection.

First I’d like to talk about Maybelline ® New York’s Dream BB Pure 8-IN-1 Beauty Balm.
And here are the 8 benefits that are actually listed on the back of the product:
• Clears Acne
• Conceals Imperfections
• Minimizes Look of Pores
• Reduces Appearance of Redness
• Adjusts To Skin Tone
• Hydrates And Smoothes
• Mattifies And Clarifies
• No Oils And Lightweight
So this beauty balm contains 2% Salicylic Acid, which helps shed dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, fights acne, and reduced redness and inflammation.
It has a smooth and creamy consistency, and does a good job evening out my skin tone. It also gives my face a pleasant Matt finish, and still leaves my skin looking and feeling moisturized.
What I like most about this particular BB cream though, is that it gives close to liquid foundation coverage without the caked up foundation feel. I’ve tried many different BB creams that just felt heavy and pore clogging.
But Dream BB Pure Beauty Balm combines concealing power and hydrating power, all while maintaining a lightweight feel.

Next is the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, and what I love most about this eyeliner is it’s smooth application.
Im also pleased with its pigmentation, which is a very intense black. It’s staying power is pretty impressive as well, and I like that it’s waterproof because I always apply eyeliner to my waterline.
It does tend to smudge a little, leaving a bit of a panda eye. But that could just be because it’s summer and the hot weather is causing it to run, in which case almost any eyeliner would do the same.
But overall, this is a great longwear eyeliner that has bold color intensity and is comfortable and easy to apply.

Last but not least is Lancôme’s Color Design 10 Smooth Hold Shades Eye Shadow Palette.
I really really like the shades in this pallet, and I love that half of them are shimmery. My favorites are the shimmery copper and the dark and light gold colors. This whole pallet is just incredible for my blue eyes, and all the shades really make them pop.
Without an eyeshadow primer though, the colors don’t look as vibrant as I’d like. Using the primer does increase the color’s intensity so they look a lot bolder, but after a few hours they tend to lose their luster a little bit.
The colors also blend very beautifully, and I personally don’t even feel the need to use a transition color when blending. The shimmery colors even have sort of a buttery feel to them, and the other colors don’t feel overly dry or powdery either.
So that’s it for my triple threat makeup review guys! Now don’t forget to follow my blog if you haven’t already, and make sure you tell me about all of your favorite makeup products in the comment section!
I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post, and I’ll be back again with more product reviews soon!
