High end Lip Butters?

 Yes. I'm still alive!
Sorry I haven't posted in what feels like forvever!! I've been really busy with school, but now that I'm on the verge for finishing i'll be posting again!
So today I was running errands , and shopping for a birthday gift for my little cousin and I saw these sitting on aisle, and decided to check 'em out. I've seen so many girls talk about these lipbalms before , that i couldnt resist! I don't know why but right away when I saw them it reminded me of Laura (also known as Lollipop26 on youtube, or Buy Now Blog Later here on Blogspot). 
The Lip Butters by Korres are super popular and have been for a long time now! I find it weird that Maybelline chose the same name for they're version of "Lip Butters". 
Oh well, its interresting how they have the same name but yet are so different from one of the other. 
The Korres Lip Butters retail for $16.00 (CND) and I got them for only $6.99 in a set of three (and they're full size) ...I know what a steal! They are very smooth , light and moisturizing ... I haven't had them long enough to do a full review , but so far so good!

 Here are the three colors that i got (from Left to Right): Wild Rose, Jasmine, and Pomergranate

Hope you enjoyed! xxx

Out with the old, in with the new!

This is a really quick update, as some of you might know, I am totally rebuilding my makeup collection.
In the past several months i've used up numerous amount of products. I'm looking forward to trying new brands of makeup and new products! There is so many products I have yet to try, so please tell me your products must haves , and I will definitely check them out! I like high and low end makeup, you can find amazing products at the drugstore. Especially since the past year so many companies such as Revlon , Covergirl and L'oreal have come out with really good products!

Products I Regret Buying

There aren't a lot of products that I regret buying and which I still own. I usually throw them out as soon as I see that i'm not using them. Also recently I've thrown a lot of my makeup away. I did a huge clean-up, and i'm now slowly re-building my collection. So here they are!

First product that i'm extremely dissapointed with it MAC's beauty powder in Blush of Youth which came out with the Rose Romance collection in 2009 (I believe). I remember seeing a preview of the Rose Romance collection on Temptalia and I authomatically fell in love with the collection. I thought the rose print was really pretty, which it is. But when I went in the Mac store I swatched it and decided not to get it because of the lack of pigmentation. So when I went at a CCO I saw it there and decided to get it without swatching it, which was a bad idea. I know i'm not the first person to mention how horribly pigmented this product is. I can't even swatch it , it's just horrible. It almost feels like wax/plastic when you try to swatch it. Overall i'd give this product 1/10, because of the beautiful packaging but thats all. Total waste of money.
Another blush that I regret buying is Maybelline Mineral Power blush. This is suppose to give you a "Healthy" glow, and luminous color to your skin. Mmmmh, not so much. This is super chalky I feel like i'm applying crumbled chalk on my skin, with tons of shimmers. Very bad. Also after a couple hours of wearing it I ended up looking like a blotchy clown. It looked H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. Nothing but hate towards this product. Overall i'd give this product a 2/10 for the pigmentation and color.

It's extremely rare that I wouldn't recommend a product by Benefit. I own and love a lot of their products. This is actually the first makeup brand that my mom bought me when I started wearing  a little makeup back in 6th grade. Haha, but this lipgloss i'm just not feeling it at all. I find it smells really discusting and after applying it on your lips the taste gets in your mouth no matter how little amount you apply on. Also it just doesn't look right on my lips , it actually transfers blue which isn't very appealing. Overall i'd still give this product a 4/10 for it's original name , and texture.

Amazing package, and great lasting power. Benetint by Benefit is the blush with the longest lasting power I own. I've been reaching for it a lot this past two weeks especially for school. I find it looks really great with pale skin, and since spring has been pretty dull so far i haven't gotten much of a tan yet. Overall great multi-use product also looks very beautiful as a lipstain. The only down side to this product is that it doesnt seem to show up on darker skin tones.

I also has it in travel size it comes with a clear gloss which very pretty applied on top of the stain. Great option for on the go!

March Favorites

Here are a few products that definitly stood out for me , and are worth the mention!
So first you may reconize the Essie polish in Set In Stones, i've been absolutely loving it , and wore it like cray cray! 
Then I have a mini size of the MAC cleanse off oil , I decided to get this in a travel size because I wanted to see how my skin would to react to it. And o-m-g!! it's my new found love. I used to use makeup removing wipes , but they're not even comparable to the cleanse off oil. It removes every little bit of your makeup!
This past month i've really been focusing on getting my skin back on track! 
The winter has been really harsh for my skin ,which made it really dry. 
I apply my La Roche-Posay Hydreane Legere every morning, and at night i switch it up with my Spectro cream. I also would mix it in my foundation sometimes which gave a lighter, and more natural finish to my skin. 
Another new discover of mine was eye cream. Specifically the ANEWclinical Eye lift. I would only apply eye cream once in a while, but since i've been using it daily i've seen a huge difference in my under eye area. It's alot softer and it helped me with my dark circles. The cool thing about this about this specific one is that the orange half you see is actually a Jelly consistency, and it's for your eye lids, and under you have the regular eye cream that I apply underneath my eyes.
