Maybelline Baby Lips and Lashes

The latest and greatest product from Maybelline! No joke, Maybelline is my favorite non-department store brand for it's quality and fit to my skin tone and preferences. I got to try their new baby kiss balms and they are wonderful! Their great lashes product, as always (for what, the last decade?) are the best. I adore the packaging too, they are quite fun!

Stay tuned, I will have pictures of the product soon! :)

So my initial reaction was that I really wasn't sure. I heard mixed reviews from other friends, website reviews, and from some bzzagents as well. Well, when I got the box I was pretty excited. I always wear some combination of lipstick and lip balm, and these were simply fantastic.

Unfortunately, I think perhaps Maybelline made a blunder when they were releasing these- these are so summery and bright in color, makes me wonder why on earth they wanted to release these during late October, so that most stores get them by the end of November? By then the colors that are in and trendy are jewel hues, glitters, black and blue. I'm kind of scratching my head at this. If Maybelline released these during the summer, I have no doubt that they'd be a bigger hit than now. I do love the packaging though.

Now, onto the lip balms themself. I love every single one of them, minus the pink punch, and that's because I really detest that shade of pink. I didn't get the grape colored one, and I might be tempted to splurge on one of those in a little bit for that lovely bold color. I'm kind of sad no coupons were included, but I'm not complaining. I didn't get any of that "I can smell/taste the SPF in this balm!!" and I'm somewhat allergic to SPF, so that's a good thing. On another hand, that may indicate the SPF is weak. Who knows? I'm not in the sun much during the winter, so it's not as big a problem. Again, why release these during the winter and tout the benefits of the SPF when most people aren't in the sun as much? Curious....

I have to agree that the color and scent are subtle, and I love that. I also love that these are crowded with metallica powder, or whatever they use that looks like broken mirror deposits. Afterall, I'm just looking for a pop of color and the benefit of having moisturized lips. If I wanted color, I'd go for lipstick (hence the mixing of the two). I've already received several compliments on them, and I've just pointed them to the makeup aisle.

Everyone already knows that Maybelline's Great Lash is their best selling product, with some crazy statistic that one get sold every second or something like that. Needless to say, I love Great Lash too. I don't care if Maybelline releases a new "Great Lash" every month and the only difference is the brush, I just really like this mascara. I don't wear it much, but I can definitely see a difference after I brush it on. My only qualm is to make the original formula waterproof, as some of it was smearing all over once I was yawning and some errant tears came out.

Anyway, I think the balms are worth it, especially if they're on sale. I really like the peppermint and quenched clear versions, though I'm still not sure why Maybelline released two clear balms, and the latter being some ambiguous description "quenched", which is suppose to hint at the scent. Right...I guess it would work for the target group, as the cute and retro packaging is really for the teen and tween and young adult categories. I can't see any adults really carrying this around. Perhaps another suggestion is to make a more mature version for the older woman? :)

Burt's Bees Natural Sensitive Skin Care - Facial Cleanser and Moisturizer

Hi everyone,

I recently received a package in the mail containing Burt's Bees Natural Sensitive Skin Care, in particular the Facial Cleanser and Moisturizer.

Valued at $10 and $14 each respectively, the facial cleanser and moisturizer each have cotton extract. Both are creamy in feel, cloudy white in color, and faintly scented of cotton. Burts Bees prides themselves on using 99% all natural ingredients. There is rice extract, white genepi (thought to be an anti-irritant) Unfortunately, that's also one of the major pitfalls- it's definitely not for heavy-acne users. I can usually get most of the oils out, after trying this product with a wide range of people most of the heavy-acne users immediately told me they would not opt for it.

I actually liked the face moisturizer, but unfortunately it costs a bit more than my favorite moisturizer that I've been using for about the past ten years now. I do like that it's very light and doesn't "seem" to clog pores.

CoverGirl....It's Easy, Breezy, Beautiful!

Hi all!

New BzzCampaign launched and this time, it's CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipcolor!

Now read this introduction and follow for my review:

Now get your red carpet-worthy look for your luxurious lips. Meet COVERGIRL Lip Perfection™ Lipcolor, a collision of color and moisture formulated to deliver perfection for your lips.

In a single stroke, COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipcolor enhances your lips with rich, rewarding color and, in just 7 days, it transforms your lips to be incredibly smooth and luscious. In other words, beautiful color now, more beautiful lips in 7 days*. How perfect!

But don't just take our word for it. With a unique blend of silk therapy moisturizers, COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipcolor is preferred 2-1 vs. the leading prestige lipstick** for overall experience, smoothness and silkiness, and provides as much rich and true color, too.

What else would you expect from COVERGIRL? In 2011, this iconic beauty brand is celebrating an incredible 50 years of helping women "Rock their COVERGIRL".

How does it sound?? Exciting right???

Now I was able to sample 2 colors in Hypnotic and Rich; I love the lipstick. To be honest with you, I am not a fan of Covergirl and I don't wear lipstick much (I'm a college student, what do you expect? Put on ruby red lips to class? .....uh no.) but after trying out these two colors, I think I'm starting to convert (OH NO!!! Not from my beloved Maybelline!).


It claims that with 7 days of use, your lips will have a softer, silker feel. I do feel that. However, I think the lipstick is a little dry- I always put a little primer on first, a Swedish chapstick (if you ever go to Sweden, their chapstick is to die for. It's white and lasts forever.) Then I apply the lipstick, just enough to give me color, and then a final layer of C.O. Bigelow's lipgloss to smooth it over with a shine.

Covergirl has a few color themes from this line: Browns, Lilacs/Mauves/Burgundies, Nudes/Corals/Reds, and Pinks/Roses, with the latter being the most extreme and risky, in my opinion. I'm pretty low key and avoid all bright colors except for that beautiful, brick red. Maybe I'll nab one in that color?

I had some coupons too, and I've given them all out except for one, and I think I'm going to go back to buy myself another one of these lipsticks, but in "Temptation" or one of those categorized as Browns, or maybe that fire engine red. I do like to party afterall ;)

The average retail price is $6.50, which isn't personal policy is that you really should throw out your lipstick once in a while because you're smearing your lips all over it and leaving the bacteria to grow in the, yummy! The price allows you to do that, which I really appreciate. Being a poor college girl, yeah, I REALLY do appreciate it.

Another thing is, I love Neutrogena because it's always tested and hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin, which lets me know that it's gentle enough for everyday use. However, CoverGirl Lip Perfect also exhibits those traits, but at a much lower price.
