This and That

I've bought a bunch of random make up in the last month or so, some of which I want to review for you guys really quick:

Disclaimer: These reviews are my personal opinion. I'm not affiliated with any of these brands, nor am I being paid to review. So don't sue me. Kthx.

L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in 'Vagabond Mauve'

I'm not really going to bother with a swatch, because my skin's color changes so ridiculously from summer to winter and back, that it's not gonna give anyone a good idea of the real color. Anyway, I was looking for something a little plummier or pinker than the bright red I always wear, and this is it. Sometimes, it looks a little too pink on me, but mostly it's just bright enough that it doesn't look tacky and I can still wear it casually. Plus, super moisturizing, yay!

Covergirl LipStain in 'Saucy Plum'

This one, not a fan. I usually really like the long-lasting feature in lipsticks, so I really wanted to try this stuff out, but what started out well ended up being really sucky. It went on well for a while, but I noticed even with my usual coat of DP chapstick on top, it was drying out really fast. And then, the whole thing dried up in like 2 weeks! I can't even use it anymore without soaking in water/vinegar for a few minutes before I apply it! Definitely wasn't happy with that.

The Falsies Volum'Express Mascara by Maybelline

Overall, I would give this a thumbs up, because truly, it's not a bad product, and I'd read a lot of good reviews of the stuff. However, personally, I didn't find it spectacular or anything. It does about the same job as my Covergirl Lashblast at separating and elongating, but I just like the Lashblast brush better. Maybe that's just me, because errbody else is raving about the stuff.

Revlon|perle Eyeshadow in 'Black Galaxy'

Loveee it. Maybe one day, I'll take pictures with it on, but basically, I was a gonner from the second I saw how it sparkled. While, I like matte eyeshadows, I think they tend to look bulky and weird on me, especially for casual wear, and especially in black. This one is light and sparkly and sometimes I just wear it by itself without eyeliner and it continues to look non-hooker-y (which, really, is the most important thing).

Also, remember that Lush stuff I bought a while ago? Well, I love it. Honestly, even just for the smell, I'd buy more of it, but the kinds I have have a wonderfully exfoliating and leave me feeling minty fresh, so the perfect ones, I think.

Hope you all are having a good weekend!


  1. I think maybe you need to teach me the basics of red lipstick, because it's one of those things I don't have the boldness to do, but you do.

  2. i've been looking for a good lipstain too! i have yet to find one. my roommate tried one from MAC. that one, similar to yours, dried out in 2 weeks as well! :(

    i am really loving the first lipstick you got! revlon makes some great ones too. i love all the ones from their matte line. i would definitely recommend them!

  3. aw, i'm sad that the lipstain didn't work out too well. i've been thinking of getting one, but now i think i'll put it off and think about it more. ;)

    p.s. i am a new follower. :)

  4. I also love pearly shimmery must be something about my skin tone, just can't pull of matte shadows. This black one is really cool.

    Look forward to hearing from you
