This was definitely a bit of a splurge but I caved with the $10 coupon. I have been looking all over for a good shampoo and conditioner for my hair. Occasionally I find one that I love but recently my hair has been feeling a little frizzy, lifeless, and damaged. Even as I was washing my hair I began noticing a difference from using these products. My hair was SO SOFT! Normally I can't let my hair completely air-dry without looking like a frizzy mess, but after using these there was a noticeable difference. I'm excited to see what happens after continued use.
I have always liked Baby Lips and when I lost my purple "Peach Kiss" flavored one I knew I wanted to get a new one. While I was there I went out on a limb and purchased this new Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in "Berry Soft". Obsessed doesn't even begin to describe how much I loveeee this medicated Baby Lips. I honestly bought one and then went back to buy another one the very next day. The minty flavor is so refreshing, it goes on smooth and makes your lips feel incredibly moisturized and soft. On top of that, the color is PHENOMENAL. This will for sure be my go-to lip product.
I have been wanting to try the REVLON Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick for quite some time. I bought this one in "Ultimate Orchid". The color is stunning, however I am a little less than impressed with the product overall. It's a weird consistency and kind of sticky. I did not love it to say the least. The ALMAY lip gloss in "Blooming" wasn't that impressive either, although I did like it much more. It was just a basic lip gloss, the color wasn't quite as pigmented as I would have liked, it goes on almost clear. However, it isn't sticky at all and I love that. If you are looking for a basic lip gloss, this one is definitely worth looking into.
I was so curious about this product when I first saw it. I feel like most products don't really live up to the hype that they advertise and normally I don't give in. But my curiosity got the best of me and I caved. Im not really concerned about fine-lines or wrinkles but I'm not opposed to having pores and blemishes diminish. After using this product my skin felt really soft and it had a matte finish. I don't have very shiny or oily skin so I'm not particularly concerned about having a matte finish but if you are looking for a product that does that this is the one! After using and then applying makeup I did notice that my makeup went on very smooth and there weren't any lines in my makeup. Not sure if it's worth the price but I did like the outcome.
Maybelline's GREAT LASH mascara in Blackest Black has always and forever been my favorite mascara and at only $4.50 its a steal. I decided to branch out a bit and I also purchased the REAL IMPACT version. It was the same price as the regular one so I decided it wouldn't hurt to try it out. I'm not sure if I just happened to get a bad or possibly old tube, but it seemed super dry and flaky, like a mascara would after months of use. I think I will just be sticking with my basic GREAT LASH Mascara.
This is not the first time I have mentioned how much I love the FITme cosmetics by Maybelline. I use the FITme Pressed Powder in 235 and the FITme Foundation in 120. It's about time I discovered eye concealer and I am so stoked about the Covergirl + Olay "The De-Puffer" eye concealer. I have used it every day and I absolutely love it!
This Shampoo, Conditioner and Flat Iron Finishing Spray smell absolutely DIVINE. I loved the Acai Berry flavor and kept smelling my hair all day. That being said, I didn't notice a huge difference in the smoothness and hydration of my hair. I'll need to use it a few more times before I decide if I will purchase it again, but judging by my first use I wasn't overly impressed and most likely would not.
