I can’t freaking make up my mind on these gloss/balm/hybrid things by Maybelline. Sometimes I love the colors and the wear time and sometimes I really hate the smell and the weird application. I actually pulled these out to throw them away because I never use them but then I swatched them and was like […]Read more "Maybelline Color Elixer’s – Swatchapalooza"
Picture heavy post coming your way! I purchased four lipsticks from a Wet n Wild Halloween display and wanted to post some swatches so you can see if you want these shades too!

I have several items from Drew Barrymore’s makeup line (Flower Beauty) that I really enjoy but today I wore this cream shadow in Mari-Gold so I thought I would share my thoughts on it. Flower Beauty has a nice feel to the brand as a whole. Their philosophy states that they don’t advertise which enables […]Read more "Flower Beauty Color Play Créme Shadow in Good as Mari-Gold"
