chapstick summer 2015

I know many of you were interested in the Chapstick Summer 2015 flavored I featured in Aloha Coconut, Watermelon Splash, and Mango Sunrise! These limited edition flavors are now available in a Chapstick Summer 2015 Flavor Pack at Walgreens featuring all three shades in one pack for $3.59.

So head out to your local Walgreens and you should be able to get these now!

Hopefully they’ll launch online shortly as well!


L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara Review

L'Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara3

L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Rock Mascara joins the Miss Manga Mascara Collection for Summer 2015 and should be arriving at drugstores now. This new formula and applicator promises volume thanks to a 360 degree spiked brush head. Honestly, the displays for L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock and the new Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara are completely off putting to me as they show models with clumpy, spidery lashes. Yeah, so, that’s not really the look I’m going for.

But of course, I had to try out L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara for myself (even though I wasn’t particularly keen on the original formula).

So here’s some thoughts!


Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain

Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour is one of several new Balm Stain flavors that launched with the Wet n Wild California Dreaming Summer 2015 Collection.

Yeah, so, I liked the name! I’m such a goof but it totally made me snort out loud.

Actually Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain is part of the permanent range of shades so it’s just being repromoted in the California Dreaming Collection but still it’s a shade I haven’t tried before so I was happy they brought it my attention in this display! I love orange lipsticks, glosses, etc in the Summer and See If I Carrot is a delightful shade of orange for Summer looks!


Colourpop Flipper Super Shock Shadow Review & Swatches

Colourpop Flipper

Colourpop Flipper Super Shock Shadow, names apparently due to the user’s tendency to flip out upon application haha, is a new Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow that launched with the Colourpop Summer 2015 Collection.

Can I just say that Colourpop has really been on a roll lately with new releases? There’s quite a good deal of delicious products launching lately including the Colourpop Highlighters, the new blushes, and of course, now the Rumer Willis Collaboration.

Let’s take a look at Colourpop Flipper!


E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blending Brush Review

E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blending Brush

The E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blending Brush ($6) was recently launched with several new E.L.F. Cosmetics Summer 2015 product selections. I actually hauled the Beautifully Bare Blending Brush on a whim to tip me into the Free Shipping zone haha…! But in all honesty, I’m typically a rather big fan of the E.L.F. Studio Brush Collection so I expected great things from this brush however, I also wasn’t sure I technically needed this particular brush!
