CC Creams (Or, The Trend That Just Won’t Die)
Okay, I’ll admit it: I am really over this BB trend. It was a little tired even at its launch, and while it’s given us some fantastic products, I feel like most of them are duds.
Which would be fine! That could be said about anything. But, well — anything doesn’t stretch on for BBs, CCs, DDs… it’s time to let it go, dear Beauty Industry Gods. Nobody asked for a BB shampoo. This is the opposite of what we wanted.
Two Tidbits of Tech
Neither of which, unfortunately, are phasers set to stun.
(They totally could be, though. I mean, look at those things!)
Look! Pretty Eyeliners.
Yeah, this section really didn’t need to exist as a standalone — it’s only one product, but in a ton of different shades. SEPHORA COLLECTION (typing that always makes me feel like an angry green rage monster) came out with a new formula, and–while this would not typically be exciting,–some of the shadees are pretty. Like, really, really pretty.
Check out that green! That beige! That pink! Eyeliners usually launch in black, brown, grey; maybe navy and plum if we’re lucky. These Waterproof Contour Eye Pencils ($9 USD/$11 CAD) are launching in thirty-five shades, though, which — well, that’s a pretty darn big step up from three or four.
So, okay. I’m maybe a little over-excited. But can you really fault me for it?
