Beauty on a Budget: Jesse’s Girl Lip Juice Strawberry Review and Swatches

Jesses Girl Lip Juice Strawberry 1

I gotta say naming a product “Lip Juice” kinda grosses me out, oh god the traumatizing childhood memories!

Gross story time.

When I was in the 7th Grade I went to a really tiny private Catholic School (ironically I’m agnostic, blame my parents for my their crazy education plans for me), we had like 9 kids in our graduating class, crazy right? Anyway, it was only 3 girls about 6 guys one of which was named John. John was gay and hung out with the chicks in our class at all times. He had a pretty full set of silver in his mouth (braces) and was REALLY animated when he chatted it up with us. Moral of the story he let the spit fly and we got treated to a nice shower during our conversations. Ha! We started calling him lip juice, no worries was all in good fun because actually, to this day, I still talk to John we even went to college together and took alot of the same classes….best part? I still call him lip juice on occasion when he’s being annoying.

Somethings you never live down.

Anyway…’bout that Jesse’s Girl Lip Juice….if you take the gross factor out you might have a nice little beauty budget piece on your hands!

Target Red Collection by L’Oreal

Target Red Collection by LOreal 1

I honestly can’t wear what the makeup world calls “thee perfect shade” of red lipstick. No way, no how. Can’t be done unless you want me to look like one of those killer clowns from that really bad yet good 80′s flick, Attack of the Killer Clowns. God, that must be where my fear of clowns comes from, that movie was simply terrifying. Does anyone remember it? They’d kill people and proceed to mummify them in cotton candy…..wow, I heart the 80′s!

For many reasons, women far and wide want the perfect shade of red lipstick. If you’re looking for that true red holy grail shade you might find it in the new L’Oreal Target Red Colour Collection that’s being sold exclusively at Target. The collection also features L’Oreal Infallible Lip in the shade Target Red and L’Oreal Target Red Pro Manicure.

If red is your game, check out the Target Red Collection by L’Oreal at your local Target.

Can you wear true reds?

Reader Review: Chanel Liquid Foundation Review

I recently bought the liquid version of Chanel’s Teint Innocence foundation, in Cameo 20 (I live in the Northwest…I’m pale, yes). It’s a light-weight foundation (oil-free!) that gives a light to medium coverage. When you look at yourself in the mirror, you’ll still be able to see your darker spots (acne scars, dark freckles, what have you), but that’s mostly because you know where they are and are trying to spot them. The average person, upon looking at you, will prolly just think your skin looks dewy and fresh. That’s seriously what this does. It brightens your skin, giving it a fresh glow, and anyone who’s close enough to pick out the little flaws should be punched anyway, right? icon biggrin I really like the light-weight feel of it, and the fact that I can touch my face without fear of having makeup all over my fingers. I also tend to rest my head against my boyfriend’s shoulder when we’re on the bus, and other liquid foundations have smudged onto his jacket (which, thankfully, rubs clean quite nicely, being Gore-Tex and all).

The foundation has SPF 12 in it, which isn’t a lot, but I use Clinique’s City Block SPF 25 every day anyway, so the SPF situation doesn’t concern me very much. I do sometimes set it with a powder, if I want a matte look, but it’s not necessary and usually I don’t bother.

I apply with my fingertips, which was weird for me the first time around. I’ve since adapted, though, and it’s fine. I just dab dots onto my face and blend gently into my skin. Works beautifully. So, here’s the bottom-line:

Pros: light, non-greasy, formula; gives you a dewy, fresh glow, while smoothing out imperfections and giving you an overall “flawless finish” look. I haven’t experienced break-outs or drying out, and I don’t look like I have foundation caked or packed on. It really just smooths into your skin, making your skin look better than it is. Who doesn’t love that?

Cons: price. At $47 a bottle, it’s a bit steep, but that’s Chanel for you. I personally feel like if I’m going to indulge in anything pricey, it should be foundation, since your skin is so important. The bottle also does not have a pump, and though it’s easy enough to pour out what you need, I can imagine it might get a bit difficult towards the end when there’s very little left in the bottle. But it looks like it’ll last for quite some time, so I’m satisfied.

Overall: I like it. I like it better than any Clinique liquid foundation I’ve tried (which are considerably cheaper), because the color match is perfect and the formula feels better – easier to blend and such a soft, radiant finish. Win!
