Maybelline Shady Shores Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Review & Swatces

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow  Shady Shores

Shady Shores is one of eight new limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows that recently launched for Summer 2013. There are actually two displays in store at the moment that house six of these new eyeshadows and another display which contains two. So do, by all means, start stalking your local drugstores for the swag!

So far, it seems all the shades are a duochrome finish. Technically duochrome finishes can be fun and they have quite the cult following. I’m not a fan though…sorry, don’t kill me, throw tomatoes at me, etc…etc….basically duochrome finishes look one color in a certain light but reflect another or even a variety of others at a certain angle or different light.

Shady Shores is a perfect example of this effect and finish.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm Review

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms

You’re very familiar with my habit of not touching up my lipstick and gloss which is why Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm is my bestest of best friends. We get on famously together and touch up is as easy as a swipe and go. I cannot be arsed to apply my lipstick and gloss as the day progresses, I’m just not that girl. As much as I love makeup I feel like it’s a chore to reapply my entire lip look when it wears away.

But lip balm?

I got time for that!


Flower Beauty Lip Service Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Flower Beauty Lip Service Lip Butter

Although not the best lip butter I’ve tried in recent months I must admit to some obsession with the Flower Beauty Lip Service Lip Butter. Flower Beauty is Drew Barrymore’s new budget brand of cosmetics available at Walmart and With this extensive collection of cosmetics they launched some very on trend products of the moment such as BB Cream, a chunky lip crayon, and these Lip Butters.

I think the Flower Lip Service Lip Butters ($6.98) are one of the items I was the most excited about as I’m on a kick with lip crayons and butters.
