Maybelline NY Baby Lips Loves Color Lip Balm Flat Lay

Baby Lips have been THE runaway hit in the lip balm category. It seems no matter who you stop on the street to ask a lady which is their favourite lip balm, the answer is “Maybelline NY Baby Lips” 97%* of the time. I am definitely one of those girls and I couldn’t have imagined in a million years that Maybelline could improve on the Baby Lips phenomenon. But they did. How? They added colour!!!

Ahhh yes. Colour. I totally forgot about that stuff. Maybelline took the already fabulous Baby Lips balm and added some hot tints to them, resulting in Baby Lips Loves Color lip balm. So far there are 4 shades in the collection and I am going to show you the full lip swatches as well as share my review.

Maybelline NY Volum' Express The Falsies Everlasting Mascara

Wearing mascara in summer is usually one of my most painful tasks. Summer is the worst time for my allergies and my eyes water like a fountain. They sting, they burn and I constantly feel the need to rub them, so you can imagine wearing mascara isn’t the most pleasant thing. Not so long ago, right in the middle of one of my morning tear-fests, the new Maybelline New York mascara landed on my desk. It made bold claims about being flake-proof, smudge-proof and the most powerful waterproof formula Maybelline has ever created. Of course I wanted to put it to the test and see if it would withstand my weeping.

Most mascaras, even waterproof, will never get through a morning with my allergies. If it isn’t smudging it is usually bits breaking off and landing in my eye. The claims of Maybelline’s latest release in the Volum’ Express The Falsies franchise gave me hope, but did it work? I think my review will answer that for you.  Continue Reading

I find January can either be a slow month for new releases or a crazy jam packed month. This year, I am finding it a little quiet so picking my favourites from the bunch were a little easier. The biggest category is definitely colour, with lots of new nail polish and makeup lines to keep you drowning in a rainbow coloured pool.

Let’s take a look at what has me buzzing this month. Continue Reading

Drew Barrymore Flower Cosmetics Line

Drew Barrymore has been the face for Lancôme and CoverGirl in the past decade but now Drew is tackling a new frontier with her very own colour cosmetic range called Flower. The name of the line is an obvious pick for Drew, being that her film production company is called Flower Films and it is a name that fits well with Drew’s persona.

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
