Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick

When Maybelline first released their Color Sensational line, I quickly ran to my local drugstore to pick up my perfect shade. Unfortunately, my perfect shade was hard to find. Pink, my go to color, looked to blue on my warm Indian skin tone. However, I finally found the perfect pinkish nude color that I find myself reaching for everyday, whether I wear it alone, with lipgloss over, or to tone down a too bright lipstick. Its a creamy shade with a hint of glossiness to it. My perfect shade is Totally Toffee.

Here's the swatch:

and on my lips:

My only complaint with this lipstick is the scent. It's hard to describe, but I would say it smells like old crayons. It is very noticeable when first applying and although it does become less noticeable, the scent does not "disappear". Totally Toffee is a definite repurchase for me :)


  1. I have to try this! you have beautiful perfect lips :)

  2. Love this colour on you. My favourite shade of this lipstick is 'Coral Crush'

  3. I couldn't agree more on the scent--definitely had a plasticky, crayon like scent. But I've had Warm Me Up and Pinkalicious before from this line, and thought they looked lovely on my Indian skintone too.

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
