Nails of the Week: Sally Hansen ‘Re-teal Therapy’

Hey everyone !
I just did my nails in this pretty color I got from Walgreens a couple weeks ago. It is called ‘Re-teal Therapy’ (#432) was around $6.99, and it’s from Sally Hansens’ Insta-dry polish line. It does set and dry fairly quickly.

I have noticed, however, that this particular line does get a bit thicker than some of the other lines and brands that I have used. That being said, the color is beautiful and rich, and I have found it to be pretty opaque in one coat. I’ve also seen this line available at Walmart as well if you don’t have Walgreens in your area.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Colorsensational

Hey everyone!
I came across this lip product in a CVS pharmacy when j was doing a little browsing. I’ve been looking for some liquid lipsticks recently,so I figured j would give this one a try.

I haven’t seen much talk about this product, but I found the words ‘vivid’ and ‘matte’ quite intriguing so I decided to try it out. I’ll start with the pros. It has a decent color payoff, and the ‘doe-foot’ type applicator is somewhat stiff, which to some people may be a con, but it’s stiffness allows for you to be very precise when applying.

Now for the cons: it has a ‘perfumy’ scent, so if you’re not into scented products then stay away. Also, you can taste the perfume (I hope that makes sense), and the flavor does not fade with wear (nor does the scent). It is also not matte. I will insert a picture to show what I mean. It is also not long lasting at all. With my normal eating and drinking, it was completely gone in 2 hours. I would somewhat expect that with a lip gloss, or even a shiny lipstick, not a ‘matte’ lip color.

All in all, I would skip on this one, unless you can stand the perfume, flavor and constant reapplication. They do have some pretty colors though. It cost around $7.49. It also does not have the color name printed on the container. All I can find is a number on the cap. I’m not sure if that will help for reference. It is ’50M901′.

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in ‘Crush’

Hey everyone!

Today we are going to be discussing an item that is unfortunately no longer being sold on the regular market. If you want these, you will have to take to Ebay or Amazon (which is where I had to go). It is the Amore Matte Lip Creme, and it is from their Limited Edition release that took place last year. I wrote Milani to ask when a particular color would be coming back out again because when I went to buy it on their website. I was told that they would be rereleased in Fall 2015. They still didnt bring it back. Now Milani has just released some new colors, and from the reviews, don’t waste your money on them. I hear they are thicker, and don’t last as long and ate also not very comfortable to wear.

But back to the review at hand. This lip creme is AMAZING! It has a good consistency, and perfect coloring. It isn’t streaky at all. It sets and dries quickly to a comfortable, powdery finish. I was so pleasantly surprised, I was pretty speechless for a while. And it lasts so long. It is simply incredible, good job Milani! It retailed for around $8.99, but I missed it at that price. I was actually going to pass on it, due to the incredible mark up being charged on eBay for them. However, since I have been seeing so many people rave about them online, I decided to just bite the bullet and try one.

I search the other colors available and found one I liked. It’s called ‘Crush’. It’s very deep brown red. It’s perfect, and I see myself wearing it far beyond winter season. It’s actually the most comfortable matte lipstick I’ve ever worn. That being said, I mist warn you about the price. Since this item is no longer available on the Milani website or in pharmacies, you’re pretty much at the mercy of those who are selling them, at very high prices, online. I bought mine for a whopping $21.99!! (I know crazy expensive, but it was worth every cent! It’s just that good) There are very few  shades left, so if you are interested, you better hurry up and grab them!

Milani Moisture Lock Lip Treatment

Hey everyone!
So today’s post is going to be on a new lip treatment by milani. Its supposed to be raspberry oil infused and help to lock in moisture. I found it at Walgreens in the new item section,for around  $8. They have a few different kinds as well, all infused with different oils, that are supposed to do different things
First off,it smells like cherry, (which doesnr annoy me even though I don’t like cherries),even though it has raspberry oil in it. Also, its a thicker tube with a very large doe-foot applicator. It is a slightly thicker consistency, and it is a comfortable feel in the lips. That being said, it does NOT moisturize in the least. It will just sit on top of your dry, cracked lips and make them shiny. That’s it!

All in all, do I think it’s worth getting? Unless you’re just looking for something to add shine, then absolutely NOT.

Covergirl Lip Lava in Mauva Lava

Hey everyone!
I’m gonna keep this one short. I found this lip lava on a recent trip to Walmart. The color seemed pretty vibrant, and I had never seen anybody do a review on it so I figured I would try it. The color I chose is #870- Mauva Lava. It has really small shimmer in it but not glitter, so it goes on pretty easily.

It also has a brush applicator, which makes a putting it on pretty simple and allows you to be pretty accurate. It also has a very, very good color payoff. I’m not sure if it’s meant to be a cross between a lip gloss and lipstick, but the color is really good. The two negatives that I can say about this product are more a matter of personal preference. I don’t like sticky lip gloss. Though this one is not the stickiest, I tried, it is still sticky. I’m not sure if that was done to help enhance the staying power of it, but I’m not a fan of that finish. My other issue is that is not moisturizing, even though to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be with this amount of color.

All in all I would say, if you don’t mind a little bit of sticky in your lip gloss, then this is definitely one to try.

Black Faux Leather Bookbad

Hey everyone!
Today’s post is on a bag I got recently from JustFab. Justfab is a monthly subscription service that allows you to to choose one bag or one shoe a month from their  collection for $39.99. You can also choose to skip a month if you don’t see anything you want, by the 5th of the month, at no charge. Now usually, I skip months. But in this one instance, I forgot to, so my account was charged for a purchase, and I was yet to make a decision on what I wanted. I figured though, since I already paid for it, I would just browse around.
I did find some other nice ones , but nothing that looked like something I didn’t have before (I have ALOT of bags). But I remembered I do have a family trip to go on I’m December and I don’t have a bookbag for it. I definitely needed one as I knew I would not be trekking around with a handbag on excursions. Plus, I don’t have a bookbag in my collection, and it’s always good to have another addition.
After some narrowing dowb, I decided on this black faux leather bag. It is a good size. Not as big as a regular bookbag but still big enough to hold my essential items. It is lined with a white animal print fabric, and has an internal zipper section. It also has 2 front compartments on the outside, perfect for your phone or a set of keys. The faux leather is soft but feels very durable.  it also has both a drawstring and magnetic closures
