~Fresh Coat~ Revlon Girly.....

Monday, January 07, 2013

Hey Everyone!

Finally got around to wearing my highly sought after( by me:)) Revlon Girly. Thanks to Gia over at Nouveau Cheap, I found out that Girly is pretty sheer so I needed to base color if I wanted maximum opaqueness.

 I put one light and very streaky coat of Kleancolor Pastel Purple on before Girly.
Then two coats of Girly.


*deep sigh* I'm not digging it. I've been having to worst luck with Revlon's glitters and they keep pumping out really pretty colors and combinations and I keep buying them!!! LOL!

The glitter was really hard to spread. You get alot of the brush, so there's not alot of fishing for glitter. But it went on patchy and lumpy.

Welp.....On to the next color.:)

~Swatches + First Impressions~ CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Coral Twist....

Hey Everyone!!

The CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms were not hard to find in this new year's drugstore product hunt. I've seen them at Rite Aid, Walgreens, Ulta and both of my CVS'. I only got ONE, Coral Twist, the same color Janelle Monae is wearing on the display ad.

 Coral Twist ( the name is only written on the protective plastic wrapper and NO WHERE on the product)
Swatch on the back of the hand.
Coral Twist on the lips.


I love this color. If it suited Janelle Monae, I figured it would suit me and it did! Great color payoff, smooth formula, much like the Revlon Gloss Stain sticks.

The price is BANANAS. Every where I saw them ( in my area), they were 8.99. O_O Nine dollars for a drugstore lip product? CoverGirl is feeling herself! I want some other colors, so I found a coupon in a magazine, then I have another coupon from this Sunday's past P&G brandsaver coupon book and I'll buy them at either Ulta with another $3.50 off $10 coupon or CVS for BeautyBucks.

Have you seen these? Picked any up? Any favorite colors or thoughts? Let me know!

~Swatches + First Impressions~ Maybelline Color Whispers Lipstick in Made-It Mauve and Mocha Muse.....

Hey Everyone!!

I found the new Maybelline Color Whisper Lipsticks at my local Wal Mart for $5.94. I picked up Made-It Mauve and Mocha Muse

Mocha Muse on top and Made-It Mauve on bottom.

Made-It Mauve on the left, Mocha Muse on the right.

Thoughts: I've worn these for the last couple of days and they are just ok. I don't think I'll buy anymore. The color was way more pigmented than I expected but they do remind me of the Revlon Lip Butters, like a year late. lol! The Revlon Lip Butters are in MY OPINION more pigmented. Even the lightest colors in the Revlon Lip Butters pack more color. On the lip swatches in the pictures, that's about three layers of color I put on.

The Whispers were also a bit greasy. I'm not a fan of lip balm any way but the texture after awhile was crazy greasy. 

Have you seen these or picked any up? Let me know your favorite colors!
