Colors: Newport Nude & OC Dream
You know we love ourselves some good reality TV, especially when it gets out of the screen to meet real life beauty products. The Real Housewives of Orange County has just released The OC Dream Collection with Vicki Gunvalson, known as “The OG Of The OC”.
This lipstick line, made in collaboration with LaSplash Cosmetics, includes Whoop It Up Lip Gloss and WooHoo Liquid to Matte Lipstick. There are 18 shades in the collection, all made in the USA and cruelty-free.
We tried a couple of shades of this luxurious cosmetic line in the colors OC Dream, a pink shimmer, and Newport Nude, a pink matte. Both are long-lasting and will wear for several hours. However, the gloss may transfer onto glass.
The Newport Nude is an innovative, ultra high-pigment liquid lipstick with a smooth, ultra-matte finish, lightweight enough to provide comfort all day. To apply it, begin by outlining lips with the tip of the applicator, fill in high pigment color as desired. It will dry completely after 3 to 5 minutes.
As for the color OC Dream, it comes as a high-impact lip gloss with lots of shine and without the heavy feel of traditional lip-gloss. We applied to the center of the top and bottom lips for a sophisticated, light-reflecting effect that makes lips appear fuller.
This was a fun line to try out. Alongside with other names like Fashion Island, West Coast Diva, and Laguna Sunset, the OC Dream Collection makes us believe that anyone can also live the OC Dream. Knowing that each shade was handpicked by the Real Housewife herself certainly makes a difference!
Dreaming of luminous matte finish, flawless correction, and excellent comfort all in one foundation? Dior promises 16-hour foundation coverage and broad-spectrum SPF 35 protection from day to evening with Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation and it delivers.
This is a non-oily, medium-to-full coverage, fluid foundation. It masters balanced color correction and comes in an egg-shaped container with a beveled side for a meticulous application.
Karen was inspired to try the Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 35 following the YouTube video Get Ready With Me with Kim Kardashian and Jaclyn Hill. For this review, she grabbed the color Honey Beige: Medium, with neutral undertones (040).
The foundation is medium to full coverage depending on how you build it up. Karen, for instance, applies it with her BlendSmart Rotating Foundation Brush for a flawless finish: satin-like, smooth, and soft.
The formula is enriched with Poreless Effect skin care essence, leaving the skin’s texture looking more refined with each wear.
Besides staying on all day without creasing, this product leaves Karen’s skin looking like skin! Beautiful, natural skin, with minimized pores. Now, tell us that is not worth the splurge?!
*Dior Tip: The Forever Perfect Foundation can also be applied with the new fluid foundation sponge applicator.

This blush has the power to create depth, dimension and simultaneously provide an otherworldly glow. Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush combines illuminating effects with modern hues for glowing, lit-from-within color.
Like many of us, Lauren is cautious when shopping for highlighters or anything that adds shimmer to her skin. Those with an oily T-zone know that sometimes makeup with shimmer can settle into fine lines and make the skin look extra greasy. That is not a problem with this blush.
Thanks to Photoluminescent Technology it leaves her skin smooth, even and enhanced, and helps to minimize the look of wrinkles. So please, do yourself a favor and don’t overlook this blush because you may feel that it looks too glittery.
You’ll figure the look is more illuminating than glittery. The Photoluminescent Technology fills the formula with optically transparent particles that alter the appearance of the skin by manipulating and refracting favorable light.
Lauren has this blush in the color Euphoric Fusion, which is a soft lilac blended with Euphoric Strobe Light, for a resplendent glow. To get a nice buildable coverage, she prefers to use a lighter hand when applying it. The result is a got a radiant finish, luminous sheen.
The blush offers a good color payoff with a consistency that is soft with warm undertones. Wear it alone or layered to create multidimensional, custom blush shades. They call this line Luxury Performance Makeup for a reason: this blush is nothing short of the highest quality. Time to grab yours!
