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.

  4. I also love pearly shimmery shadows...it 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

    Love
