EOS Lip Balm - A Must Have

My lips have not been the same. All dry and cracked practically everyday. Ever since the start of winter my lips have been needing a huge rescue. Well here comes EOS to save my lips!
I tried the lip balm in Sweet Mint. I can't get over the smell. Omg amazing. The shape of this is very convenient and the I like the twist cap. I can throw this in my purse, and instead of forgetting about it, I can't forget. I want to take this out every 5 minutes just to keep putting it on. I'm sold.
This lip balm is beyond amazing.

They sell this at Walgreens for $3.49. I suggest you go there and buy every single one they have. No second guessing, buy it. You will not be disappointed.

Too Faced Summer 2010 Collection

Too Faced Cosmetics has released a new Summer collection mostly focused on getting the perfect pout with a bronzer on the side. Here is a closer look on each product. 

Too Faced Lip Insurance
Now with the ever popular Too Faced Shadow Insurance, which is my first primer choice as well, hoping this is as good as it seems. Claims it will lock down lip color and prevents fading, bleeding and creasing. Review to come ASAP.

Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Liner
This lip liner only comes in one color, nude. Also has natural antioxidants and Vitamin E to protect and moisturize which I like. Says it will be the only lip liner you will ever need. I would have to try and see for myself, but I think I'm going to pass on this one, you should to. 


Too Faced Borderline Lip Liner
This one is free of Mineral Oil, paraben and preservatives. It is completely clear and colorless which is great for all skin types. Probably going to pass on both lip liners though. I can find a clear one and a nude one in drugstores.

Too Faced Glamour Gloss
There are 12 different shades of this super shiny gloss that there must be a least one color everyone would like. I'm a big gloss girl so of course I will be getting one.. or possibly two. Review to come on this one also.

Too Faced Aqua Bunny Bronzer
Description reads: Long-wearing, buildable, cream-to-powder water resistant bronzer that withstands heat, humidity and life's climate challenges. Interesting. Plus with Spring here and summer around the corner I need to this to try, and review of course.

So that is what is in the collection. Anything you want to try? Comment and let me know! Maybe one will be a giveaway prize =D

Brand Bests #5 - Chanel Makeup

I'm back with another Brand Bests and this time it's Chanel. I love pretty much everything from Chanel but there are a few favorites that I use on a daily basis or I always need to keep in my kit. Now of course, their pricing can be outrageous, but I believe you pay for what you get. So for me, I don't mind paying the price if I really love a product.Know that this is from my experience with each item that I have loved from each brand. This is my opinion.

 Chanel Lipgloss Glossimer

I have a few of these and I wish to own one of every color one day. This is what a lipgloss should be known for. Each one has amazing shimmer and extreme high shine to it. I love how they range from sheer and natural to sparkling and bold. Either use with your favorite lipstick or they look great on their own. The glossimers always stay on my lips for a long time too which is great.

Chanel Inimitable Mascara
If you have been a long time reader of my blog, then you already know that this Chanel mascara is my HG mascara. I have tried many different mascaras, where some are just okay or others are fairly good. Nothing compares to this one though. I will always run out and buy another no matter how much it is. It does everything: separates, curls, defines, lengthens, no smudging ever. It seems too good to be true, but to me it's true. lol


Chanel Nail Colours
I love when these are limited edition, but my wallet doesn't. They are a little pricey but the colors are amazing and I never have a problem with chipping. I would say skip the regular colors and splurge on the limited edition ones! =)

So those are my brand bests for Chanel! Hope you enjoyed!

What should my next "Brand Bests" be? Vote in my poll!
