Review: The New Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop #235!

I just recently purchased this lipgloss at target! I got a hot pink dress and i got this gorgeous hot pink lipgloss and an Essie nail polish in the shade Boom Boom Room (which i also might do a review on later) to match!
I like this lipgloss a lot  My absolute favorite lip glosses are the ones by Buxom because, in my opinion, they have the best non sticky formula! I feel like this Revlon lipgloss has the same amount of non stickiness to it! I just love it! Another thing about this lipgloss that i love is the fact that it can be built up to be very opaque without being goopy and gunky. I love lip glosses that you can just throw on and not have to worry about layering them over lipstick or stain to achieve a good amount of opacity! I feel like this lip gloss stays on my lips for a very generous amount of time before i have to reapply. I also love how moisturizing this formula is on my lips! This lipgloss is amazing and is definitely a new favorite of mine! :)

Here is a swatch!

Here is a closeup of it on my lips!

Lastly here is some shots of the packaging! :)

First Impression: Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eyeliner in 001 Black and 013 Purple!

This is going to be my first first impressions review lol

Today i purchased the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eyeliner in 001 Black and 013 Purple! lol I've been wanting to get some waterproof eyeliners since summertime is coming up. I decided to get black because i just wanted something basic and then I also got purple for my "wild" color. lol These are not retractable, they are just a basic pencil that you would sharpen. They were extremely affordable at about $4 dollars each. When i got in the car I immediately opened them! I tight lined my eyes with the black one and it went on smoothly without tugging or irritating my eye. I was very impressed, because i have very sensitive eyes and it didn't bother me at all. The color was very rich and pigmented looking when i put it on and overall I'm very happy with this product so far! In a couple of days I will do a full review on both colors with photos! :)

Review: Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm #215 Watermelon Twist!

I purchased this item at walgreens. They had a deal, buy one get one half off! So i got one to put in my mom's mother's day gift bag, and i kept the other for myself! hehe :) I got the one called watermelon twist! I really like this product! I think i like it better than the revlon lip stains that look similar to these. The reason why i like the Covergirl version better is because, 1.) its creamier, 2.) its less drying on the lips, 3.) i feel that cover girl has a better selection of colors. I do feel like the staying power could be better. It doesn't say anywhere on the tube that its a stain so that might be why it has less staying power. That also might be why its less drying on the lips as well. Overall i really love this product! The color is GORGEOUS! I definitely want to get more colors!

After the jump are some photos of my lips before and after  i applied Watermelon Twist to my lips. :) Btw... i did this review right before i went to sleep, so i'm in my worn out t shirt and most of my makeup looks like crap because its been on my face literally all day. I just decided to do this review randomly. Just focus on my lips not the rest of my face. :) lol
