My review maybelline baby lips

So a few weeks ago I picked up Maybellines baby lips lip balm. I got the sheer one that is called "quenched " It has this light flavor scent. Just something a little bit fruity but I cant put my finger on it lol.  I love it though. It makes my lips soft and creates this natural shine. I use it under my lipgloss and then throughout the day when I dont re-apply my gloss. There is a few other colors and flavors. Im going to try the fruit punch one next i think. Mine cost me I think $1.99-$2.99 at wallgreen.

So my wonderful friends got me some great gifts for my b-day. I thought I would share.

sale dress! amiclubwear

Ok so I bought this dress from AMI clubwear. It is to small. I bought it in a large since im more curvy and it fit me more like it was a medium. Soo If you want it, its yours :)

$25.00 and $5.99 to ship it. I use paypal since Im a seller on ebay as well.

makeup haul- elf and revlon

So I ordered a bunch of makeup from ELF the other week when they were offering the studio brush set for $5.00 with a $25.00 purchase. So I got a few good things :)  I got 2 pairs of the natural lashes, their bronzing brush which is also used for contour, then I got their black liquid liner. Mine had a deformed brush so I cant use it. I did try to use it and its super black which I loved. Then I got their sharpener which I think is the best sharpener ever!  I then got a lip gloss in sparking wine. Hate it! I thought it would be just shimmer glitter, but it has glitter in it. SO its grainy which feels so gross. I wont be using it. Pretty color though. I also got a single eye color in pink ice. I can use it in the corner of my eye or as a brow highlight. It looks to white on the eyelid. Then I got bronzer in toffee. 2 radiance highlight colors in in sunlight and sunrise. Body shimmer in blazing bronze.Nail polish in berry pink. And then also their studio brush set.

Then I also got Revlon stardust eyeshadows. They were so pretty I had to get them. I got them in starry pink and night sky. Tons of fall out!! and the pink doesnt show up on the skin well. Its a good color to layer over another color to get the glitter effect.

Then I got the limited edition blush from maybelline called stage glow. Its a good cheekbone highlight. It does not give a color pigment really. I use it when I dont want to use a liquid highlight.

 Radiance enhancer  top to bottom : sunrise and spotlight
 Body shimmer in blazing bronze- Shimmer : its very dark when you apply it, but it gets a pretty shimmer bronze when you blend it. I love it. Perfect for your cheeks or a little bit on your cleavage :)
 Lipgloss in sparkling wine. You can see the gold glitter flecks. Horrible feeling with the glitter. I wont use this.
 nailpolish in berry pink. Very pretty
 Single eyeshadow in pink ice. I will use this as a highlight.
 Bronzer- its pretty dark. I plan to use it for contouring.
 Maybelline blush- stage glow
 Revlons star dust- I love the black color. Its very glittery and smokey on my eye.
 As you can see the pink barely shows up, but the black gives off more pigment.
 Elfs studio brush set, Only bad thing is my stipple brush has a few bristles with glue?? lol oh well. It will be fine. The brush set is really good overall.

Glam time with my daughter :)

I love having a little girl. Painting her nails, putting pig tails in for her hair do.. gosh I love every minute of it..

I bought this elf nail polish this past week in the color fushia. I thought I would put it on her toes and she could model it hehe. I love the color. On me its more of a wine color I think, but on her toes it looks more pinky/wine.

My fotn pics

I went out for a friends b-day this past weekend, and here are a few pics.

 For my look:

white tube top - kohls purchased in the summer
pants: wet seal

Makeup: I did my usual eye look. I did the silver on my lid and black shadow as the contour to get the smokey look, then i did a brow highlights. Bronzer on my face.
Heavenly body shimmer spray on my chest as well as some bronzer.

For my hair:

I used my suave touchable finish hairspray in   lightweight hold
then i used my John Frieda Secret weapon finishing cream and smoothed that all over my hair to get rid of frizz and flyaways. I LOVVVVVE This stuff... then i sprayed my suave vibrant shine spray. Its a shine spray with mineral bursts to add a touch of shimmer in the hair. Nothing over done. I love it! It was recommended by another blogger/youtube girl so I had to give it a try.

Review and comparision

So I ran out of my target brand up and up Dual treatment moisturizer the other day, so I was at walmart and I grabbed the clean and clear dual action moisturizer. The up and up brand is the dupe for the clean and clear.

Up and Up- The lotion is more thin and not thick feeling. I have been using this one for a few years. It has the salicylic acid acne medicine in it. To help and treat pimples. I do love this stuff. It makes my skin soft after I was my face in the morning.

Clean and clear- This one is more of a thicker consistency. The smell is pleasant. It does what it says. It does make my skin soft after I wash it.

Overall both of these are really good. I think its a matter of $$ Id buy either one of these again. They both smell good and they both deliver on what they say they will do.
