How's everyone doing? Am I posting a bit too frequently? XD Blogging is my distraction from my school work T_T (you can tell somebody desperately needs a distraction... ) Anyway! I've got a haul to share with you guys =D
This is my third time purchasing from a youtuber! From the lovely Marlena, MakeupGeekTV =)
I've been watching Marlena for quite a while now. I was very happy for her when she came out with her own makeup line :) however her products never really interested me until now! I've always wanted a light yellow gold eyeliner and "treasure" just looks perfect. Also picked up a teal and navy blue color because they look so gorgeous. Will be testing these out :D
Next... I went crazy at Walgreens XD
Minus the YSL Touche Eclat foundation sample I got from Sephora I got prior to my trip to Walgreens :D I will have swatches up and maybe a mini review depending on how much I use it.
Anyway I've been wearing makeup consistently for the last 5 years, but I never got into lip products till this year. Simply because before I really hated how lipsticks/lip glosses feel. But after hoarding so many lip products without using them, I decided to force myself to start using them. Man now I'm just hooked O_O My lips are really used to lipsticks now and don't really have peeling problems anymore... even without wearing a lip balm underneath. So weird! But anyway now I always feel like I look dead without some sort of lip color XD
Got these lip products from Wet n Wild... I think they're $1.25 each O_O I was like seriously?!?!?!?!?!?? My mind is blown away by how cheap they are!
So far I've only used the Nude color and I LOVE it. So so so glad I picked this up. Finally found the perfect nude! They aren't the most moisturizing but I don't feel like they dry out my lips either.
The pigmentation is simply amazing
From left to right: 902C Bare it All, 966 Don't Blink Pink, 970 Purty Persimmon, 965 Cherry Picking, 905D Smokin' Hot Pink
When I wore Bare it All, it really dries down and stays put on my lips. It barely transfers, which is VERY impressive! I would imagine all these lipsticks are very long-wearing.
By the way these colors do leave your lips stained.
Been wanting a red nail polish for a while. Found the perfect color ^_^ It actually is a true blood red but it came across the camera as a brighter red. The red looks deeper in person
Essie in 924 head mistress. This is my second Essie nail polish and I'm quite pleased with its performance. The other one I have which is 688 Chinchilly is kind of thick and hard to apply evenly.
Lastly I got some Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
On the left: 020 Lovesick Passionnee. Right: 005 Crush Beguin.
They seem quite sheer on the back of my hands but the color pay off is really strong on the lips, so do keep that in mind ^_^
This is my first time using a lip stain and I'm not sure how I feel about them lol. Because I found that if I'm not careful I would stain the outside of my lips as well O_O so I guess I have to make sure I'm really precise with my application. Between the two I like Lovesick better because I can feel the little glitters/shimmers in Crush? Not sure if there are any but I can feel something there. Oh by the way these have a minty taste/smell to them.
Overall for these Revlon stain balms... I don't really care for them. They do feel nice but I much prefer the lip butters =D
updated: I changed my mind XD now I LOVE the lip stains! more than the lip butters. Lip butters can get on my teeth but lip stains don't hehe. Check here for my update ^_^
That's all I have! Hope you guys had a happy Monday :D Have a great week ^_^
