The Colorburst lipstick in crimson is the only true red lipstick I own. As I mentioned in a previous post, I really don’t do reds. it has amazing quality just like the other Colorburst lipsticks, I’m just not sold on the color for myself.

This Colorburst lipstick in soft rose I picked up because it was on sale. It’s not a color I would normally reach for but I was blinded by 75% off. I still think the color is nice and the quality is excellent like the others I have reviewed.

I tried to get stuff that I needed or was almost out of rather than impulse items. I got my favorite daily brush cleaner and my HG face wash and a couple of smaller products to try.

What did you score with your gift card?


I have been wanting to try garnier bb cream since hearing about it showing up overseas. When people started reporting seeing it in the US I went to every drugstore in my town and while out of town for the holiday I stopped at each drugstore I passed. I finally found it on the way home from the trip at a random Walgreens on christmas day in the pouring rain!

This bb cream is nothing short of amazing. It makes my skin feel wonderful and evens out my skin tone. It is very moisturizing and between a matte and dewey finish. I don’t remember the exact price I paid but it was somewhere between $10-$13. I have only tried one other bb cream and that was the MAC version which I do like but I like this one much better (gasp). There is a perfume smell to the cream as i know some are sensitive to smells. On to the pictures: for reference I got the shade light/medium and I am NC 20/NC 25.

Have you tried any bb creams? Which is your favorite?


Tarina Tarantino hypershadow in Electric Butterfly is a bright orange eyeshadow. It’s soft and feels amazing. It looks dark in the pot but comes off much brighter. It’s not as sparkly as Tokyo Hardcore that I previously reviewed but none the less I love this just as much!
