• Milani HD Advanced Lip Color~Cotton Candy, Review & Swatch

    August 28, 2011 Kelly Baum

    The Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in 111 Cotton Candy is a very soft, glittery baby pink lipstick. The product comes in a black tube embossed with ‘M’s and gold accents. It’s twist tube style, but very slow, and since the product is so soft, I would not recommend twisting it farther than just beyond the top. Before you apply this, I warn you to make sure you don’t have dry or chapped lips, or this lipstick will show up…

  • My Experience at the Bare Escentuals Outlet Store

    August 26, 2011 Kelly Baum

    Yesterday I visited an outlet mall near me, and I decided to pop into the Bare Escentuals outlet store. Now, the only makeup-oriented store I had ever visited before is Sephora. I know, I have yet to make it to an Ulta! So, for those of you who haven’t been to ‘makeup-oriented stores’ or are relative newbies when it comes to makeup, I thought I’d give you a rundown of my experience! The store itself was very nicely set up,…

A word of advice for those doing photoshoots in the forest: if you think you have enough bug spray on, add two more coats. I got 27 mosquito bites. When you look at the photos, you can definitely tell how forced my smile is! Anyway, I was looking for a…

  • CoverGirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm~Marble, Review & Swatch

    August 21, 2011 Kelly Baum

    You know how when you’re in the store and the colors of products look amazing, but when you get home and actually try it, it turns out to be a big disappointment? Yep. That’s this product. In real life, the color is a muted bright fuschia color in the tube, and while I knew the color wouldn’t exactly transfer to my lips because it’s just a lip balm, I thought I would get something! A slight tinge of pink. I…

  • Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer~Fig, Review & Swatch

    June 19, 2011 Kelly Baum

    I officially have a new favorite product! Last month, my local Borders had all their Burt’s Bees products 50% off (weird, I know. I don’t know why they were in a bookstore in the first place), and all they had left was the lip shimmers. Since my lips are naturally very pigmented, getting a light color in lipsticks and lip balms is naturally pointless because it doesn’t show up. So I chose the scary red color. All other lip balms…
