~ lip products - november 2011 ~

Saturday, December 8, 2012
Looking back on my last few blog posts it makes it seem like all I'm doing is eating hahaha but for some strange strange reason I've been splurging and buying a lot of make up recently too. At least it's a lot for me. I think it was because Sephora kept sending me all those discounts! I still have that 20$ off 50$ offer I haven't used yet......

This set was only 10$ and with so many nice colours it seemed to be a great way to try out a range of their lipglosses. I did have one before but didn't use it much.

I haven't been able to try out most of their colours but I did try the clear one and really like it, especially over a lipstick. It seems that the clear gloss has a different consistency than the coloured ones. With the clear gloss it wasn't sticky and glided on really easily, it also had a cherry flavor to it. With the coloured glosses they are much more sticky and I don't recall a flavor to them.

From what I recall their full size lip glosses seem to have a brush applicator instead of this doe applicator. I'll have to double check on that though....

Go ahead and check out their website here!

random* I'm wearing my most favorite nude polish here also by Joe Fresh and am hunting down another bottle but can't seem to find any T_T

~ fresh - sugar chapstick ~
The first time I tried this was from their birthday gift this year and I really loved it! I never thought I'd be repurchasing it because it's just so expensive for a chapstick type product which I go through quite fast but I guess the 20% discount got to me because I got the full sized one lol

Overall I really like this product but be warned, it's fairly soft and can break easily. Just go easy with the application and you'll be fine. There is also a heavy lemon candy taste/scent to this product for those who are sensitive to smells (or hate lemon flavored candy).

~ tarte maracuja lipgloss- blissful ~
My first Tarte lipgloss! I was really eager to try this because I heard such good reviews about them.

They have a minty feel when you first apply it and the gloss is more pigmented but the down side for me is the packaging....

It's one of those clicker tube pens type of packaging and the product tends to just squeeze out from the middle and not evenly through the brush. So I have a hard time trying to apply this product because it doesn't distribute evenly throughout the brush! Basically the brush splits into a "V" shape with the gloss oozing out from the middle, I find myself having to dab the gloss on. 

I was planning on grabbing the limited edition christmas set of these Tarte glosses but now I'm double thinking it. I still might get it because it's such a great steal and I probably wouldn't be tempted to buy more of these Tarte lipglosses for a long time.

I've also bought some blushes and other products here and there. I finally finished my current face cleanser + new make up remover and am so so excited to write about those! Especially the make up remover which works miracles!

P.S I find the hardest part of writing "reviews" is to have a photo of me wearing every single product, which didn't even happen once in this post.

PP.S When I write these "reviews" it's really just my two-cents on the products themselves.

PPP.S Can you imagine how chapped your lips would be from all that scrubbing to wear all the different lip glosses to take photos of them? I honestly applaud those ladies who do this!
