Quick Beauty Reviews: Clinique, Urban Decay & PÜR Cosmetics

Kim has been on a mission to find a great new foundation for this fall/winter. See Make Up For Ever's HD stick. Clinique launched a new foundation/concealer in one that looked appealing to me. So while shopping at Sephora I added in some other products I've been meaning to get to. Here are my thoughts on recent purchases:

Clinique Beyond Perfecting™ Foundation + Concealer $35 - I thought this concept was interesting since I always thought your concealer should be a lighter shade than your foundation especially for under eyes. The bottle basically looks like an oversized concealer. It's a applicator brush which is not my favorite because you don't get a lot of products. They warned that the colors are "deeper" than usual but will adjust once applied. I definitely thought it was a little on the yellow-ish side and it was on the heavy side even thought it says "lightweight" on the site. I would use this more as a concealer or mix it with a lightweight BB cream/moisturizer. Not my favorite.

Can you see a difference??

Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara $22 - I've been hearing such good things about this mascara. So many people wanted me to try it. Meh. Was not overly impressed. I will say that I like the brush and that not much formula comes out but if it's supposedly going to give me volume... I didn't see any. Definitely more of a fan of Too Faced's Better Than Sex or Benefit's They're Real (what's with these names?!).

PÜR Cosmetics Eye Polish Eye Base and Top Coat* $26 - "This eye primer and top coat’s pure pigment creates a crease-proof eye shadow base with a luminous metallic sheen." You can wear it alone or as a top coat to hold your eye shadow in place. It comes in 6 beautiful shades. I'm liking Cashmere as it's a light champagne color that I can wear everyday. I wasn't a big fan of the Latex-free silicone applicator. I preferred using my fingers or a sponge. It's liquid looking in the packaging but dries like a cream. I was really impressed with these. Now part of my daily routine!

What new products have you tried recently?
