Review: L’oreal Colour Riche Balm

10 Jan

Hello everyone! Another NEW drugstore product review today I really wanted to find some of the new Maybelline products (especially the Dream Bouncy blushes) but it hasn’t been released in any drugstore in my city so I guess I’ll just have to stalk the drugstores for a little bit. ^-^ Anyways, onto the balm review!

Description: An tinted lip balm that gives 8 hours of hydration to the lips. The shades I picked up were 218 Rose Elixir and 318 Heavenly Berry.

Review: I have to put a disclaimer out there DO NOT EAT THIS LIP BALM!! Seriously don’t try to lick it or anything it tastes like nasty chemicals. Ugh, I felt so sorry for my tongue while I was testing these lip balms out. As for the claims they are semi-right the lip balms are hydrating but for about 1 hour then they fade and I have to reapply. Texture is very smooth and glides easily across the lips. Pigmentation isn’t the greatest I was sort of expecting these to be similar to Revlon Lip Butters but I was wrong (duh look at the name). Overall, for the price that you are paying for this I would just recommend buying a regular lip balm that works better than this.

Cost: $6-9CDN @ various drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? For the price that you are paying I don’t think that this is worth it. Save yourself some money don’t pick this up but pick up the Revlon Lip butter they are much better than these guys by the way the review is here.

Review: Too Faced Beauty Balm in Watermelon

13 Jul

Hello everyone! A Too Faced product review today… one of two (ahah I only have two Too Faced products). Hopefully this review is helpful.

Review: This is a tinted lip balm essentially in a pot format. Too Faced is known for their cute and vintage packaging and this does not disappoint it’s so cute! I dislike dipping my fingers into products but I make an exception for this as the color gives the lips a nice flush of color (rosey pink on the lips with shimmer). It is extremely moisturizing and wear for quite some time (approximately 3-4 hours without eating and drinking). The batch that I got somehow does not smell nor taste like Watermelon that I was expecting instead it has a scent of burnt plastic mixed with a bit of watermelon. Another unfortunate thing is that these are not available instore nor does it exist on Too Faced’s site thus you can either purchase it off allcosmeticswholesale.com or any other online store. Which means shipping costs is going to jack the price up from the usual $11 or not.

Cost: $5.99USD @ allcosmeticswholesale.com, Original price $11USD

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those who are willing to purchase this item online but for those who aren’t willing to pay for ridiculous shipping prices or are germ-o-phobes then it’s not a product that you need to get.

New things

20 Feb

Trying out something new today.

 Finally got around to trying it out… the texture looks quite smooth with the exception of some berry bits like the seeds and stuff. Taste wise… I liked it my brother and sister did not. To me it tastes like blueberries with a tinge of the sour Acai berries. Now I haven’t tried Acai berries on their own so I don’t know if it is a likely comparison but the tartness in the smoothie does seem to come from the Acai berries. As for what’s inside the smoothie it contains a blend of 180 blueberries, 270 Acai berries, 2 Bananas, 1 3/4 apple, 3/4 pear, and 24 other berries (blackberries and boysenberries). As you can tell on the bottom of the bottle it states that a cup (250mL) is equal to 2 servings of fruits and vegetables.

I can’t believe that it has 270 Acai berries… 270!!

Onto homework and I probably won’t post anything tomorrow. I will see how work is played out during the week back at school.
