This is a swatch of NYC (New York Color) Ultra Moist Lip Wear #305-Ruby. This lipstick is extremely affordable - only $0.97 at Wal-Mart!!

I am super happy with this shade, it is a pink with shimmery copper sparkles. The color is beautiful and not too bright. I love it because is is girly but professional looking at the same time. The wear on it is pretty nice too, it does indeed keep the lips moist when wearing it and last a good while.

The packaging is nice and sleek and the click of the cap keeps it nice and closed: not something that will open up in your bag or anything.

Super happy with this good deal!

I wanted to review this product because I am one of those people who always has to have some sort of lip balm or lip product handy or my lips start to feel really dry. Well, when I saw this new chapstick on the shelf at Walgreens (the Wal!) I knew I had to give it a try! I normally do not like the regular Chapstick Moisturizer that comes in that dark blue wrapper because I find the stick to be harder (like it feels tougher on the lips) than the other flavored Chapsticks, which I actually thought was kind of ironic. I wasnt sure how this one would be but since I saw it was a cool flavor I thought it could be different.

I have to say: it is awesome! It brings moisture to my lips and totally tastes like a jolly rancher in a tube! I do not know if they changed the formula or if the addition of the flavor is what changes the texture and feel of this chapstick compared to the original moustrizer chaptsick but I am very happy with it!

Rimmel London exaggerate waterproof definer in 290 precious gold (gold), 211 sable (brown), 230 deep ocean (blue), 270 purple shock (purple pink with shine).  They are lovely colors, but they don’t go on consistently and I have to let it set then try it again otherwise there are gaps of no color or chunks of color in some parts.  Even after they set, they aren’t waterproof and smudge fairly easily.  Not every color feels like it has the same formula either, the brown and blue go on softer than the purple and gold.  I got them buy one get one free at CVS and I certainly wouldn’t pay full price for them.

L'oreal hip cosmetics came out with a clear eye shadow base that is probably ties with another of their products, Decrease, for worst eye shadow primer on the market.  The texture is thick and the word “gunk” comes to mind.  The bottle doesn’t contain much and it creases almost instantly when I put shadow on and it doesn’t allow blending.  It’s like a cream eye shadow that masquerades as a primer only to be one giant let down.  The only plus is that it goes on clear.  Stay away, far far away.

another NYC lip gloss in clear.  Just like my other reviews, I really don’t like the NYC lip gloss line, I don’t like the smell, the tackyness, the consistency, how quickly it wears off, and how the outside of the packaging is always sticky no matter how tightly I close the lid

I dont have any swatches to add to this post, but I also wanted to mention how unhappy I was with the yuckyness of the gloss coming out of the edges of the cap even when it is tightly screwed on. No matter how tightly I close the lid, as Laura says, gloss manages to get on the sides of the tube and it is so gross to touch and really inconvenient to store, especially in purses, which usually have a cloth lining!’

This is a swatch of a dark red gloss from femme couture. The color is raisin. This gloss, as far as I know, is found only at Sally Beauty supply. I think the gloss feels really nice on the lips, and the color is good, but it is definitely the kind of gloss you want to wear over some sort of lipstick or tinted lip balm because since it is dark, it is much more noticeable when the color separates due to the formula being liquidy. 

I think overall that would be the only thing I didn't like. I like the gloss itself and with light or clear colors it shouldn't be a problem, but since it is such a dark color it looks kinda bad on its own.

Physician’s formula in shimmer strips for hazel eyes.  I love the pinks and browns and the highlight colors, it’s great for coordinating and it does make hazel eyes pop, but the color payoff isn’t consistent or great with any of these.  It comes with an eye shadow applicator that is slightly pointed so you can also use it for lining but that’s where the seam is and it hurts!  Use your own brushes for sure.  It was an okay buy, I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again.
