L'oreal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche Lipsticks

L'oreal's new Colour Caresse Lipsticks are probably my favorite drugstore lipsticks ever.

L'oreal Colour Caresse Lipsticks

The formula is really shiny and creamy, and they are also moisturizing on the lips.  They are definitely not a long-lasting lipstick but I like them so much that I don't mind re-applying.

There are  about 16 different shades.  I decided to pick up:

  • Blushing Sequin
  • Velvety Fuchsia
  • Violet Chiffon

The colors go on sheer, but can definitely be built up for more intense pigmentation.

Nails: Maybelline "Pinkalicious"

This week I'm wearing "Pinkalicious" from Maybelline's new Color Show Nail Lacquer line.

"Pinkalicious" is the PERFECT girly, bubblegum pink nail color.

Small Weekend Beauty Haul

Weekend Beauty Haul


Lancome "Hypnose Star" mascara- I got this as the 100 pt perk at Sephora.

Urban Decay "All Nighter" makeup setting spray- I picked this up because I LOVE urban decay's setting sprays. I honestly like the  "De Slick" setting spray from Urban Decay better, but I didn't want to spend the $30 for the full size..... lol

Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in "Pinkalicious" - This is the perfect girly, bubblegum pink nail color.

Simple Night Cream- I LOVE the other Simple products so I decided to try the night cream because it's a little thicker than the day moisturizer I have.

Sinful Colors Lip Shine- This was kind of an impulse buy, but it was only $2.99 at Walgreens, and the color is  really pretty.

Milani Lip Flash Shimmer Pencil in "In a Flash"- This is a perfect shimmery, night time fuchsia/purple lip color.

Let me know what you think.

Weekend Walmart Beauty Haul

Another trip to Walmart..............


Walmart beauty haul

Simple replenishing rich moisturizer- I'm still not sure if this is moisturizing enough for my dry skin, but I still want to see how it works with my skin after a few weeks.


Secret scent expressions in "cocoa butter kiss"- I'm not at all picky about deodorants, but this line smells soooo good.


Sally Hansen cuticle eraser and balm - My cuticles look horrible right now, so I really hope this works!

Spring Valley organic extra virgin coconut oil- I LOVE this.  I use it for everything and it smells GREAT! (it smells exactly like Almond Joy candy bars)

Davidoff "cool water" for women- I wanted to try this because I'm obsessed with beachy, mineral salt, and sea kelp scents, and this is the closest perfume I could find to that.

Revlon kissable balm stain in "crush" - Click here for a full review of Revlon's balm stains.

Regardless, self expression and being different is cool.

June Empties!

These are the products I've used up for the month of June.


June 2012 Empties


Pink Chiffon body lotion (Bath & Body Works)- Already repurchased the full size.

Warm Vanilla Sugar triple moisture body cream and body lotion (Bath & Body Works)- This is one of my favorite scents from B&B. Already repurchased.

Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment- I liked this a lot and it's really lightweight, but I probably won't be repurchasing because I prefer the spray oil treatments.

Simple moisturizing facial wash- This is probably the best moisturizing face wash I've tried. Already repurchased.

Freeman Anti-Stress Dead Sea Minerals Mask- I didn't see any real results, but it felt nice on my skin and the color of the mask is the same color as the package. Pretty.

Maybelline "Lots of Lashes" Great Lash Mascara- The wand is really small and easy to work with.  The formula is nice (NOT wet) and it provides volume and length.  PLUS it's only about $5.00 at drugstores.  Will repurchase.

Let me know what you think.
