Review: Maybelline ShineSensational Lipgloss – Watermelon

22 Nov

Hello everyone!

A review today for a pretty good drugstore lipgloss.

Description: Giving you an incredible shine and exceptional great tasting gloss.

Review: This lipgloss tastes like watermelons and is a essentially red jelly gloss. I personally love it as an everyday gloss the formula is light, non sticky, and doesn’t settle into the lip lines. The gloss lasts for about 3-4 hours without eating or drinking so about average for a lipgloss.

Cost: $4-8 CDN @ various drugstores

Would I recommend this product? I totally would it’s a really great everyday gloss and the range of colors is just awesome. I would have picked up more but I got no space for it boo…

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.

Review: Lipsmackers Lip Balm

23 Jul

Lipsmackers… sure brings back memories and I hated it back (might have been because of the cakey flavours) but now I’m back in love with them (fruity flavours only).

Opps upside down photo… but you get the picture.. get it? I crack myself up sometimes.

Review: This is the product to get for those starting off with makeup or wanting to start off with makeup. Ironically I started using Lipsmackers when I was in what Gr 3? But I swore off of it mainly due to the way it felt on my lips… something unnatural. My family is a big advocator for natural beauty so back then it made sense that I didn’t want anything to help with my looks. Now it’s a totally different view… I am a huge advocator for girls to wear makeup but I still prefer the natural look. So with Lipsmackers I only wear at home or I apply it on top of a SPF lipbalm (Nivea or SoftLips) don’t want those sun rays to hurt the skin on my lips. Trust me burnt lips aren’t as fun. It is pretty moisturizing and adds a nice sheen to the lips.

Cost: $2.99CDN wherever available

Would I recommend this product? Of course I would! Who wouldn’t?

26 Feb

This is going to be another branch in the beauty section of my blog. Beauty intros are introductions to a companies products that I would like to try and I will also post other peoples thoughts on them. Most of peoples thoughts will come from MakeupAlley. Companies that I will review will most likely be from drugstore companies and maybe some higher end brands such as MAC or Shu Uemura.

So Joe Fresh beauty… not much is known about it as it is a specifically a Canadian drugstore brand that is only found at Loblaws or Superstores across the nation.

They have a wide range of products and all the products are under $10CDN. Some of the most listed or wanted products include cheek tint, tinted lip balm, felt tip liner, cream lipsticks, and eyeshadow.
