Clarins Crystal Prodige Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Clarins Crystal Prodige Lip Gloss

Danai Gurira was on Talking Dead last week? I just watched it so I think it was last week! And man she looked divine. Total girl crush! She’s smart, she’s talented, she’s beautiful! She’s possibly one of the best guests Chris has been able to land on that show aside from Greg Nicotero. P.S. When do you Andy Lincoln is going to sit on that couch? Sometime in this millennium?

The fact is she was shining brightly in her interview and contributed so much to the show it boggled the mind. Plus I was blinded by her juicy, shiny lips. Please Danai if you’re reading this share with us what your mirror mirror on the wall gloss was! She’s very understated in her beauty. She had a little bit of blush, a really low key naked eye, mascara, and big beautiful bare lips that were super glossy. It’s fun seeing her transform from kick your zombie ass slightly tom boyish Michonne to sexy, sultry Danai.

I’m not Danai that’s for sure but a little crystal clear Clarins Prodige Lip Gloss might make my lips look as good or at least one can hope!


Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Nude Compliment, and Sleek & Spice Swatch Comparisons

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

I’m so scared someone is going to throw a rotten tomato at me if I don’t do a swatch comparison of Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Sleek & Spice, and Nude Compliment. I’m probably doing you a complete disservice but unfortunately I rarely have time to dig through my stash and just list every single dupe there is for another shade I review. If I blogged full time I’d def try to commit to doing something like that but I don’t and I find it a real chore to search through my stash and try and find dupes of everything I post about.

*head desk*

It’s exhausting.

What’s equally exhausting is people asking me is that a dupe for this is this a dupe for that. Oh lawd. It seems like everything has to be a dupe for everything else. Most recently I get a lot of questions about the newest Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Tattoo Eyeshadow shades so I decided I’d end all the discussion about the most popular shades being dupes for a shade already in the permanent collection, Bad to the Bronze, as I feel like it isn’t a dupe of the two newest shades and I’m unsure really why people might feel they are similar. I’m probably missing something here but I suck at shade comparisons anyway so don’t take my word for it but here are some swatches so you can decide for yourself.

Plus if I’m honest at $5.99 each I’m almost positive the world won’t end if maybe sorta kinda Bad to the Bronze resembles something you already own! It’s not a $30 eyeshadow so we should be ok! icon smile
