Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm is available in five new, limited edition shades for Spring. I recently picked up the Coral Crush Baby Lips Balm as I can’t resist anything in coral, orange, or peach (you know my addiction well don’t you?).

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray Review

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.

I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!

But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.

Thayers Witch Hazel Pads Review

Thayers Witch Hazel Pads

You might remember I recommended Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner a month or so ago. Thayers Witch Hazel Pads are another fav of mine that I’d love to introduce you too!

I wish Thayers would consider putting some of their other blends into pad form as they travel easily if you’re heading on an extended holiday or vacation plus I find the pads terribly convenient compared to the larger bottles.

Sadly, they do have one quirk!

Cheap Thrills: Sally Hansen Invisible Lip Liner

Sally Hansen Invisible Lip Liner

The new Sally Hansen Invisible Lip Liner ($6.99) is a nice cheap thrill to pick up your next trip to the drugstore. I know when I wear red lipstick it likes to take a little road trip around my face.

I’m being serious.

I put it on in the AM and it proceeds to feather up in my lower lip and somehow move to my cheek. Once I even found some on my forehead. Word.

Invisible Lipliner is key to keep that shiz on lock down!
