Swatches: Revlon Lip Butters

I’m sure 99% of you are sick of all the Revlon Lip Butter hoopla, am I right? Lol well, I recently surrendered to the almighty lip butter Gods! These things really are awesome and actually DO live up to the hype. The only frustrating thing is finding them. Every display of these that I’ve found has been so incredibly picked over. I was lucky enough to grab these 3 shades at CVS, which are 3 of the 4 that I wanted! I still need to find Peach Parfait but so far I have: Creamsicle, Sugar Frosting and Strawberry Shortcake.

The curse of the QVC Today’s Special Value has struck again. I was doing soooo good at resisting the temptation to buy this, but a fellow makeup junkie finessed me into a purchase. And I am SO glad she did! This fully-loaded Smashbox Mega Palette was on sale for $84.96 or 4 payments of $24.76 and completely worth every cent. I know the price tag seems high upon first glance, but take a look at what this baby contains:

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

Review & Swatches: Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss

I’m kind of a gloss addict. If any particular lip gloss brand or product is buzzing around the beauty world, I have this alien-like radar that sounds off in my brain until I go scope it out. This was pretty much the case when I bought the Jouer Moisturizing Lipgloss last week. I kept seeing this brand get name dropped in youtube videos and blogs, THEN Birchbox had to go and include it in one of their monthly boxes. I didn’t get it in my box, but Birchbox was shipping this product for free. And I had 100 Birchbox points to use ($10), AND there was a 20% off Birchbox coupon floating around… so I ended up getting this $20 lip gloss for $6, shipped. Cuz that’s how I roll.

My Urban Decay Sale Purchase!

My Urban Decay Sale Purchase!

This is old news now, but Urban Decay recently had a MEGA sale going down. All of their loose pigments were $1, blushes $3, glosses $4… the list goes on.

I ended up ordering 5 of the pigments ($5), an Afterglow Blush ($3) and two bottles of the Santa Tanita Sunless tanner ($4 each). Unfortunately, my package arrived without the blush. After emailing Urban Decay a few times and not getting a reply, I called their customer service number and the representative refunded me the $3 I paid for the blush, plus my entire shipping fee of $6. That was cool with me! Especially considering the shipping was more expensive than any single item I bought LOL.

Review & Swatches: Origins VitaZing

Review & Swatches: Origins VitaZing

I’m pretty sure I’ve made it painfully obvious that I really enjoy my BB Creams. The coverage, the convenience and the cost are the three C’s that keep me coming back. HOWEVER, I’m sad to say that most BB Creams aren’t made with the best ingredients. I found Origins VitaZing during my search for a product that I could use as a base under my foundation, provide some coverage, and contain decent ingredients.
