Lip Products Haul and Mini Reviews(:

Hey everybody! I hope you're having a great day! So, I went to Wal-mart yesterday with a gift card, and of course, I headed straight to the cosmetics section! Now, normally I probably would have spent it all on eye shadow (I am obsessed) but I went on a mission to expand my make-up collection in a different category. Lips! Here's what I got:)

I got 3 Maybelline Baby Lips!! First off, I'd just like to say I love these! They are extremely moisturizing and leave your lips feeling hydrated and soft. These will be on my forever repurchase list. Another perk is that they do give a sheer tint to your lips, especially the red one, Cherry Me. If you are a little afraid of red lipstick but you'd really like to give it a go, I'd advise you to pick up the Cherry Me Baby Lips! It's great for people who are wanting to ease their way in to wearing red! :)

Peach Kiss, Pink Punch, Cherry Me
 Not only do they moisturize and give your lips color, but the smell is delicious! They actually smell just like the name! Not to mention they taste good too. :) Personally Cherry Me is my favorite. You can find these at almost any drugstore or Ulta, but at Wal-mart these babies are only $2.97! Imagine what a deal you could get with a coupon!

I also picked up another Maybelline lipstick while there, along with one from Cover Girl. On the left is Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in #720, Pearly Pink. On the right is a Cover Girl Continuous Color Lipstick in #505, Iceblue Pink.

I love the pearly finish on the Maybelline. I adore frosty pink lipsticks:) The Cover Girl one is somewhat moisturizing..but doesn't come close to beating those Baby Lips;) But I did need a bluish pink lipstick in my collection, so if you are looking for one, this may be a good option for you. Both of these are around 5 dollars at Wal-mart.

~I'm leaving the house in an hour and am still in my P.J.'s. I need to get a move on! :)
~I think I may bake some chocolate chip cookies. Yummm.
~Review coming soon on Physician's Formula's New "Casual" Shimmer Strips Palette. I'm excited!

L'oreal Paris: Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer Mini Blog

Hey everyone! I'm really excited to tell you about this one. The other day I got this coupon in the mail for $2.00 off Loreal's new Lumi Light Infusing Primer. The best part, it came with a sample! I have only tried it once, given that the sample was only enough for one use, but that's all it took for me. I love it!! It really does give your face a beautiful glow! It works well as a primer and helps make-up last quite a bit longer. I will definitely be using the coupon to buy the full sized version soon. I can't wait. Where ever you get it, it should be around 10-12 dollars. Have a great day guys!

Sorry for it being sideways, I couldn't turn it for some reason! Grrr. >:[

Daily Nuggets:
~Going to my grandma's for supper tonight. Should be good.
~Going to start prom shopping soon! I am beyond excited!!!! :)
~I really want Urban Decay's limited edition Alice in Wonderland palette...but they don't sell it anymore. Any tips on where I can find one??
~I really don't understand this weather lately. 75 degrees in February? Come on.
~I need to be more confidence. That's a major flaw of mine. :/

New From Wet n' Wild!

So I went to Wal-greens a couple weeks ago and was excited to see a display for new products from Wet n' Wild! I picked up one of their new Megashield Lipsticks in "Pink Champagne" and a bronzer in the shade "Reserve Your Cabana."

First off, I LOVE this bronzer! It comes in 3 different shades (Reserve Your Cabana being the lightest). I actually picked this one specificly because I didn't have a light bronzer such as this one, and it looked like it could be used as a great highlight...and it can! It has the slightest shimmer in it, but nothing that is going to make your face look sparkly. The packaging is a little big, but that just means more bang for your buck at only $3.99! Hands down, I am very impressed with this product, and it even has pushed it's way to the top of my favorites list. Unfortunately for me, I've been clumsy with this arm brace lately and I dropped mine pretty hard. The powder broke into a million pieces. :/ What stayed in the compact is still usable though, I just have to tap my brush...kind of like mineral powder. Oh well. It's still great.

Now, on to the lipstick. I like the shade that I picked and I love the fact that it has SPF 15 in it. It is average as far as staying power, but the one major downfall I see with this is the packaging. I feel like it's a little cheap and of poor quality. Mine makes this squeaking sound when I turn up the lipstick. Also, the cap isn't very tightly fitting. If you could depot this, I wouldn't have any complaints at all. It's only $2.99, which is still a pretty good deal. Mine came with an instant $1.00 off coupon making it $1.99, which is even better.


Computer Problems and a Sprained Hand...

Hi everyone, I know it's been a long while since my last post and I want to apologize. First, my old laptop was having issues so it took me about a week to buy a new one. Then I fell and severely sprained my hand at school! I still have a brace on it, so I am having trouble typing. Ugh. :/ Anyway, I will be adding a new review on some new Wet N' Wild products soon! Stay tuned! :)
~It's supposed to rain all weekend, not happy about that.
~Big shout out to Greenwood High School for beating our rival team, the Purples, this weekend in triple overtime. GO GATORS! :D
~I love warm fuzzy socks in the winter, they are a must have.
~Must think of a good post for Valentine's Day...any ideas? (:
