Review: Covergirl Lip Perfection in 260 Heavenly

12 Aug

Hello everyone! Oh, pigmented lipstick with other properties?

Product Description: A lipstick that helps heal your lips and make them look perfect in 7 days with pigmented colors. 260 Heavenly is a fresh pink color. This is a cream shade.

Review: I really like this lipstick color and I think it suits my skin tone (yellow) very well. The lipstick was a lot more pigmented then I thought it would be so surprise there. Over the course of 7 days I didn’t notice anything different about my lips if anything they felt even drier than when I started using the lipstick. This lipstick doesn’t have a smooth glide across the lip and I don’t detect any scent from it. Wear time is about 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. Overall, it’s a very nice pigmented lipstick for those on a budget.

Cost: $9-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this as it is a really good lipstick but would recommend putting balm underneath the lipstick so that your lips don’t feel so dry.

Review: Limited Edition Maybelline Colorsensational Lollipop Lipsticks

11 Aug

Hello everyone! A limited edition review I haven’t done one of these in a long time as I really don’t like the idea of limited edition.

Product Description: An lollipop color and shades perfect for the summer. I picked up 110 Raspberry Ice and 120 Citrus Slice. Both are basic glossy lipstick with a slight hint of color.

Review: Well as you can tell from the swatches they don’t show up on my hand but there is a bit of a tint when applied to the lips. Strange that it doesn’t work for my hand though. Anyways, the lipstick has a balm like feeling when applying and sometimes it tugs on my lips. It doesn’t dry out my lips but doesn’t make them feel moisturized either. I wasn’t expecting much from the product and it turned out there really is nothing really special about this except for the super bright packaging and the see-throughness of the lipstick. Each of the shades had their own scent which was nice touch. Overall, I would say a nice lipstick for those just looking for a tint or for those who just like quirky lipsticks.

Cost: $8-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets for a limited time

Would I recommend this product? I would purchase all the shades as they are a really cool concept with the see-through lipstick but you can get better formulation and pigmentation for the amount of money you are paying. So I would say unless you like these sorts of lipsticks it just isn’t worth purchasing.

Blog not Updating?

9 Aug

Hello everyone! So I noticed today that the posts that I had put up on the site haven’t been uploading itself… so I’m sorry but I hope you won’t mind being overwhelmed by the amount of posts going up today. Just for fun though I’ll just post up a picture of what my supposed expression looked like when I found out.

BTW, my shirt says TreeHugger, thought I’d clear that up.

Animethon Haul & #6

8 Aug

Hello everyone! A haul post from Animethon 18 this year. Hehe I’ve completed basically two points on my 20 things before 20 list. Hooray for killing two birds with one stone.

Books were on sale buy 4 for $25 so I got 8 books total of $50 but each book is about $15 so I saved around $70.

Mashimaro was $10 and the mushrooms all together costed $50. Lots of money spent but now I have a mushroom farm!! MUSHROOM FARM!!! My sister is so jealous she wants some now. ^-^ Shrooms can do that to people so I’m going to get some more mushrooms hopefully I will have about 6 by the time this year is up.

Cosplay & #4

7 Aug

Hello everyone! Just wanted to post this up today for sure. I went to Animethon today!! Last day but I still went!!! So I completed some things off my 20 things before 20 list so yeah. I’ll update on the other 20 things item I finished as well tomorrow. I wasn’t at Animethon for a long time just under an hour and a half so I didn’t snap much photos but here are the ones that I snapped.

A personal favourite.

Review: Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in 110 Keep a Secret

5 Aug

Hello everyone! A gloss review today and I picked up this shade because I was looking for a basic everyday lipgloss.

Product Description: A gloss that give you the ultimate shine and makes your lips look poutier. 110 Keep a secret is a light pink shade with silver microshimmers.

Review: This gloss gives you a really nive shine on your lips and they have the same scents as the Lasting finish lipsticks which is vanilla cupcake. The lasting power of this isn’t that great it only lasts on your lips for about an hour max and that’s without eating and drinking but I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day due to the low cost. The gloss glides on smoothly and the doe foot applicator fits just nicely with my lips. I think this is a great basic gloss that everyone should have in their bag. Definately would love to pick up more shades in this gloss range.

Cost: $5-9CDN in drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would really recommend this product and would purchase other shades. It works great as an everyday gloss.
