Get Soft, Smooth, Hydrated Lips with These Products

soft smooth hydrated lips

Summer’s here so maybe I don’t have to worry so much about my drier lips! I know I have issues with chapped lips in the Winter and typically they are flaky, red, and just yak! When Summer comes I’m less likely to see chapped lips but my lips do tend to get a bit drier!

So getting soft, smooth, hydrated lips is one of my missions in this life.

Here are some product recommendations for those that have the same dry, flaky lip issues I do!


Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss

I’ve been having some great success with Black Radiance Lipglosses recently so I snatched up a Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss ($2.99) recently in the hopes my winning streak would keep up!

Black Radiance Illusions Lipgloss captures light like a prism and gives lips a 3D look that’s full of shine and shimmer.

Sounds interesting right?


Covergirl + Olay Face Lift Effect Firming Foundation Review & Swatches

Covergirl + Olay Face Lift Effect Firming makeup

Covergirl let loose a slew of new products for Summer 2014 that includes this new Covergirl + Olay Face Lift Effect Firming Foundation.

Apparently it’s a face lift in a jar….

Does it work?


NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme Review & Swatches

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme

Sure it’s essentially a tinted moisturizing but NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme is actually a super cheap thrill to pick up for lightweight coverage this Summer season!

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme lacks SPF but they tote it as a multitasking genie that minimizes pores and fine lines, smooths skin, brightens, and has a wear of up to 14 hours.

Whoa now…marketing is a bit much on this little guy but I will say it is Muse Approved for purchase!


Maybelline Jelly Glow Blush Review & Swatches

Maybelline Jello Glow Blushes

Recently I did a post about Maybelline Japan Products I Wish Were Available in the US and I realized that Maybelline Jelly Glow Blush was a product I mentioned in the post and I HAD!

Dontcha love shopping your own stash? These were buried in a pile of to be reviewed products and I had forgotten about them. This is probably going back nearly a year EEP!

So I dug around and I located the Maybelline Jelly Glow Blush and decided to see how they compare to the formula of the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush that released in the US. Technically speaking Jello Glow came first so it was a safe assumption that the formula released here to our market would be a dupe.
