Hi everyone! Today I'll be reviewing one of the products I bought while on vacation, Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush. I had been wanting to try this for a while but was never sure if it would work that well, turns out I was right. While this blush has the potential to be great, it falls short, leaving the user with too bright cheeks and overly defined lines. It definitely looks like mousse, and feels like it to when you put it on. I actually don't mind the texture, I think it's an interesting idea but for a mousse it doesn't blend that well. I find that even if you try to blend it out as much as you can you can still see the line where you stopped putting on blush. I tried really hard to soften the line but it didn't work very well. I also didn't like that this blush really caked up foundation, even when I patted it on lightly it still managed to make my cheeks look pretty gross. Overall this product basically doesn't work out too well, don't buy it and save yourself the money.

I'm home! I had a wonderful vacation, and did lots of shopping! I'll be doing a lot of reviews on the new products I bought soon, I just want to use them for a while before I start reviewing them so I get really used to using them. So far I am loving all the new products I bought!

Hello everyone! I just have one more exam to go and them I'm finished, I'm so excited for my vacation to finally start!
So today I'll be reviewing one of Avon's lipsticks from the Ultra Colour Rich line. I haven't been extremely impressed with it so far, while the colour is beautiful (I chose the colour "pout" light pink) I don't find that this lipstick lasts very long, and it really settles into the fine lines on my lips. Unfortunately I have pretty dry lips most of the time and this really emphasizes dry, chapped lips. It does look good when I *exfoliate my lips though so I've just gotten into the habit of doing that whenever I wear this. This is a pretty inexpensive lipstick, it only costs $8, so even though I don't like it that much it's not like I wasted a lot of money. One great thing about this is that it comes in a wide variety of colour's and finishes. The finishes are metallic, shimmer, satins, and sheer. "Pout" is a shimmer but it really isn't that shimmery, which I like because I think shimmer can sometimes look a little tacky. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend, but if you want to try it I suggest you make sure your lips are exfoliated beforehand.
* you can exfoliate your lips by wetting a toothbrush and rubbing it over your lips, this helps get rid of any dead skin. You can also take a wet wash cloth and rub it over your lips.

Hello all my wonderful readers who have been so patient with me, I'm really sorry about the lack of posts. I'm quickly taking a break from studying to write this review, and I'll see if I can fit another one in later today. I bought this moisturizer last Friday and I've used it every day since and I love it! But to be honest it doesn't do what it is supposed to do, at all. Generally when something says mattifying that means NO SHINE, if anything this adds shine. Now, not the gross greasy kind of shine, it actually makes my skin look healthier. I don't use this on my t-zone because that's where I get oiliest, but I do use it on my cheeks because they often get dry. I'm pretty sure if I did use this on my t-zone I would look like a grease ball. I really wouldn't recommend this if you have completely oily skin, but if you have dry areas on your face this should work really well for you! One of the best things about this lotion is that it helps my foundation go on so smoothly, and it has SPF 15! Overall I would really, really discourage people with completely oily skin from getting this; chances are you'll hate it. But if you have dry skin, normal skin, or combination skin I think you'll really enjoy it!
P.S. It doesn't smell like seaweed

Hi everyone! I hope everyones weekend is going well. I meant to do this review about a month ago but I completely forgot, so here it is now! My friend uses this lipgloss every single day, and she always talks about how much she loves it so I decided to try it out. I've been pretty satisfied with it, I mean there is nothing really special about it. I do like that it's not sticky, it goes on very smoothly. Another great thing about it is that its really light weight so you can barely feel it on your lips when you have it on. There are a few things I don't like about it, one being that it's not long lasting. However it doesn't claim to be long lasting so I guess that makes sense! Also, for some reason this gloss sometimes makes my lips feel a little numb. I have no idea why because I asked my friend if that happens to her and she looked at me like I was crazy, so I'm guessing it doesn't happen to her. I have sensitive skin though, so thats probably why it makes my lips numb. Another downside to this lip gloss is it only comes in four colours, and none of them are really very pigmented. Overall its a pretty average gloss, so I'd say don't buy it. I will be doing a few lip product reviews soon so keep checking back for those!
