My Drugstore Lip Favs

I have a relatively large collection of lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms. Most of my collection is bought from Target or Rite Aid because I have a very strict cosmetics budget and you can find quality for a good price in a drugstore.

So I’m going to start with lip balms: my ultimate fav lip balm is the Maybelline Baby Lips, I have two colors/flavors. the original clear balm in the blue tube was my first love and I used it to the end and then replaced it with the Cherry Me flavor which is a red color in the orange tube, which you can purchase here . The cherry Me is my favorite because it gives a very natural red color that isn’t sticky and wont get all over my teeth and face. That is my biggest issue with lipstick, it gets on everything if you aren’t careful. My other fav lip balms are the EOS eggs! I have the lemon drop, sweet mint, and summer fruit flavors and I love them all. I have had the lemon drop flavor for a year now and it’s still not gone even though I use it religiously which is amazing to me! I love a lip balm that will last me a while.

I have so many different lipsticks it was hard for me to pick 3 of my favorites! But I finally narrowed it down. First off I have Kate by Rimmel London, I have two shades; 01,a deep red color and 08 a dark nude color. I love these because they go on thick and give a fabulous color that is great for a special occasion. The 01 red was my very first red lipstick so I have a special place in my heart for this one ;). Next I have Maybelline Colorsensational in Coral Crush, I love this color so much I decided to go get a Clinique Chubby Stick in the same color so I could have a longer lasting color. For the price I still recommend this brand though. It goes on smooth and light making it easy to get the color you want by layering. And lastly my ultimate favorite drug store lipsticks, Revlon Colorburst.

I only have two colors from this band but if I could afford more lipstick I would continue to buy this brand. It feels like a chap stick on your lips but the color is so rich and beautiful. I have Strawberry Shortcake, a pale pink that makes any face look innocent and fresh, and Raspberry Pie which is a deep magenta that can make anyone look bad a$$.

I hope this review was helpful in your next lip stick shopping spree!!

May Wantable Box

So I got an email from a website I had entered a giveaway on and this website was enticing.  It was telling me to order a monthly box of goodies. I investigate this idea of a monthly goody box and thought it sounded like fun! Wantable.com was the website that had sent me the email. You have three choices of a box, makeup, accessories, or intimates. you can either pay $36 per month and receive one surprise box a month or you can pay $40 once for one box. I decided I don’t really have the money for a subscription so i just paid the $40 and got myself one box. I chose makeup because I have an addiction and no I don’t want help for my addiction.

In my Wantable Box I received four items; two Eleece mask mask pouches which retail for $15 per packet. ncLA nail lacquer in Not So Sweet which retails for $16 per polish. La Bella Donna lip stick in the shade Pink Sand retailing for $24.50, and lastly black (noir) gel eyeliner from (Pla) Beauty retailing for $22.

I haven’t yet had a chance to try out the face mask but I am very excited to try it out soon! The nail polish is a beautiful light pink nude kind of color and the quality of the lacquer is top notch! I was extremely excited to see lip stick in my box when I opened it, I LOVE lipstick. Basically every time I go to the drug store or target I end up with a new lipstick! So I was obviously very happy with this gorgeous pink lipstick, the quality is amazing it goes on so smooth and it stays on for a good while as well. In the past I haven’t had good experiences with solid or gel eyeliner, I am a liquid liner type of gal, so I was a bit weary to try to wear this gel liner, but I was quite impressed, it is soft enough to go on easily without pulling my eyelid around and it isn’t a super ark black so I can layer it for any look I want and it’s easy to smudge for a smokey look as well.

Over all I highly recommend purchasing a Wantable box at least one time, it is so much fun and so worth it for the quality of the products you receive. Good job Wantable I am one happy camper with my May box.
