the Balm Read My Lips Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

the Balm Read My Lips Lip Gloss

the Balm Read My Lips Lip Gloss is a new gloss formula from the Balm that’s available in 11 shades with a formula that contains Ginseng, a powerful antioxidant known for its mentally stimulating properties (I was just hoping for some extra energy when I applied these but I’ll take a gloss that stimulates my mind ha!).

the Balm Read My Lips Lip Gloss are a pleasant little surprise because at a glance they appear average, perhaps a bit uneventful but they are actually anything but!

MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass Review & Swatches

MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass 1

I’m kinda in love with MAC Gold Mirror at the moment but man oh man is it sparkly. MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass is a limited edition gloss that launched with the MAC Pedro Lourenco Collection for Summer 2014.

I imagine in some other life MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass would have made an excellent cream eyeshadow in all it’s sparkly joy!


Avon Lip Lacquer Stain Review & Swatches

Avon Lip Lacquer Stain

Avon Lip Lacquer Stain is a bit of an over marketed product as it promises a lacquer shine with the staying power of a lip stain…hmmmmm….

Not so much!

I purchased and tested out two of the six shades and I actually liked the formula but found it disappointingly over marketed.

Here’s a few pieces I tried out recently from the collection!
