Hard Candy Plumping Serum Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Plumping Serum Lipstick

Hard Candy Plumping Serum Lipstick ($5) is yet another incredible product that Hard Candy recently launched with their Spring/Summer 2015 Makeup Collection. Honestly, scoring $5 buck lipstick with a great formula is a rarity in my humblest opinion so count me shocked and delighted by the texture, wear, and pigment that Hard Candy Plumping Serum Lipstick brings to the table.

Yes, you need it!

Soho London Disney Aurora Fairy Makeup Sponges Review

Soho London Disney Aurora Fairy Makeup Sponges

The Soho London Disney Aurora Fairy Makeup Sponges ($12.99) are a trio of face sponges inspired by Sleeping Beauty. Actually this set is one of several new makeup tool accessories set that Soho collaborated with Disney on that apparently will be permanently available at Walgreens!

Although I’ve been recommending many of the sets for younger girls and recommended tucking them into Easter baskets I must admit that the Soho London Disney Aurora Fairy Makeup Sponges is a nice budget pick up for those who like Beauty Blender style sponges.

Take a look!

Chapstick Watermelon Splash Review

Chapstick Watermelon Splash

Chapstick Watermelon Splash is one of three new, limited edition Chapstick flavors launching with the Tropical Paradise Collection for Spring/Summer 2015. I remember as a kid I’d beg my mom to get me those achingly sweet packs of Bubblicious Watermelon Gum. As a child they tasted amazing but have you every tried chomping a cube on of that gum as an adult? It’s truly cringe worthy and you can feel your teeth decaying and a trip to the dentist is in the near future.

That stuff should be outlawed.

None the less I’m still every so slightly addicted to the sweet flavor and fragrance of watermelon and this new Chapstick Watermelon Splash is the perfect way to smooth and soften my lips whole getting a tasty hint of watermelon flavor on my mouth!

Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss1

Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss is one of a few new Super Lustrous shades that launched with the Revlon Sahara Escape Spring 2015 Collection. I could be wrong for many of the shades from this collection might just be permanent at some point as none are labeled as limited edition.

I honestly though Desert Spice and the other three shades introduced with this collection weren’t terribly unique or special enough to warrant a purchase but some may feel that isn’t the case.

Take a look below perhaps you might find Revlon Desert Spice Super Lustrous Lipgloss appealing!
