Hey everyone! I'm back with another edition of my thoughts and impressions of  beauty products I've recently purchased. On a side note, I was so frustrated with Blogger last week! It ate some of my comments and my last post was lost...and then it magically reappeared. I'm sure you all felt the same way. Hopefully it doesn't happen again anytime soon.

Now to my mini reviews:


I finally bought a lipstick that gets a lot of hype: Rimmel's Airy Fairy


The color is beautiful. It's a wearable mid tone pink with hints of lilac. It also has some golden shimmer, but I don't find the shimmer transfers when applied to my lips.


The formula is creamy and quite moisturizing actually. I don't find it to be drying at all. I also love the fruity scent. At around four dollars, I think this is the best neutral pink I've ever tried.

Verdict: Recommend



On the same trip to the drugstore, I also picked up one of the new Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Balms. This one is called Peach Crystal. I love Revlon's Super Lustrous lip glosses and lipsticks so I had high hopes.


If you've tried MAC's Tender Tones, than you will remember that jolly rancher scent. This has the same smell, which I love! It also has an SPF of 15, so it will be perfect for trips to the beach this Summer. The color is very sheer, but this shade does give my lips that "juicy" look.


Pretty right? The formula is a bit sticky, so if you dislike that then you won't like this balm. However, I find it to be really moisturizing and I would absolutely repurchase.

Verdict: Recommend



During Sephora's VIB discount week, I bought this Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Smog. It's a gorgeous tarnished olive color. I love wearing green on my lids, as they complement my brown eyes and bring out the golden flecks in them.





I'm a mess with liquid liner, but the brush is so fine that it makes a perfect line without any effort at all. The brush is very flimsy, but I think that's what makes the application so easy. I still love my Lancome Artliner, but this definitely comes in a close second. I love the fun color range, the sole reason why I bought Smog in the first place.

Verdict: Recommend



So as you can see, I really love all three products and am very happy I have them in my collection.
Have you tried any of them?

  9. I've heard so much about Airy Fairy - it looks very pretty on you! Do you have MAC's Angel - I wonder if they're similar or not?

    I never tried a MAC tendertone, but they are so popular, so it's great that there is a dupe for it!

  11. that liner is so pretty. It reminds me of the Clinique Cream Liner in Egyptian, I think now Egyptian only comes in pencil liner form which I never use as they smudge and I don't like sharpening, I miss the cream liner version so I may have to try this urban decay one! You should post a pic of the liner on your eyes.

  12. Lindsay and V: It would look pretty on both of you! Natural, but still a little color.

    Andi and Chaotic Cookie: Thank you girls

    Ashley: Oh, you should! Colored liner can be very subtle, especially if it enhances your eye color. I think deep purple and emerald is gorgeous on so many people!

    Andrea: I got mine at Walmart!

    Raech: It's good to know that they don't dry up your lips. Although MAC is still my fave, I find most of their lipsticks to be very drying.

    Ella: Thank you =) I've never tried Angel, so I can't compare but I'll have to check that one out the next time I'm at MAC.

    Jennifer: That Clinique sounds gorgeous! I wish my camera was better at focusing. That's why I never do a face of the day. Smog is very wearable though, it actually looks really natural. I think you would like it.
