Here's a review on Baby Lips by Maybelline! You can purchase baby lips at a variety of drugstores, Ulta, or Amazon or Ebay. They are around $4.
The flavors they come in(including limited edition) are... Quenched, Peppermint, Pink Punch, Grapevine, Cherry Me, Melon Mania, Pink Wink, and Coral Crush.
I have the peach kiss and it works quite well. It tints my lips a nice peach color, gives off a nice sparkle, and moisturizes fairly well. Baby Lips promises moisture for 8 hours but it doesn't tend to stay in that long... at the most about an hour or so. A great thing about baby lips is they have an SPF of 20 so it can help dry lips in the winter, and protect them from the sun in summer. Baby lips does have a smell that is quite accurate to the real deal. Baby lips help renew lips if you wear it for 4 weeks... I would say that the moisture is fairly noticable. The color itself is pretty vibrant and I think a couple of them are sparkly. 2 key ingredients in baby lips are vitamin E and aloe leaf extract which is great !In the end baby lips does result in smoother, softer, and more vibrant colored lips.
A competitor with Baby Lips Is EOS lip balms, which stands for evolution of smooth. There is another review up on this webiste created by Kay which you can check out as well. EOS is a medicated lip balm that is sheer. It also has a scent but I prefer baby lips. If you choose to, you could use EOS to seal in baby lips.
So overall I really recommend baby lips as a great lip care product. They are a little expensive but quite worth it. Maybelline always comes out with stunning flavors! They did a really, really, really nice job with baby lips!! Anyways, here ar some swatches.....
Anyways.... Enjoy your baby lips!!!

I just wanted to tell you about a product that It's sold worlwide. Have you heard of Dr.Organic Herbs-Line? There are creams and stuff based on herbs which make them so natural and chemical-free. I'm totally in love with their stuff, they have lots of them for every skin type. But this post is mainly about some products I used,their soap and cream of tea tree line.
Since I have some issues with spots from puberty my skin is a mess. Sometimes It's oily and sometimes It's so dry it makes me depressed. I've been to a situation when it was impossible to even smile, so I have a combination skin. When I stress out, I break out badly and since my week is being a mess, my skin is totally in a bad condition.
A week ago, Holland&Barett had a discount 50% so I thought why not buying some products? I should mention that it's possible to find Dr.Organic lines in pharmacy and other herbs shops.
About the Soap: This soap is totally amazing! I remember buying a soap costing like 12euro for my oily skin. When I use this soap I feel like it's taking all the oilness from my skin and I totally like it. And it's very cheap as well. I think you could use it for one or two months! Worth it. I'd buy it again since I'm really satisfied.
Labelled as a soothing antiseptic barrier cream and containing not only tea tree oil but also aloe vera, sunflower oil and cocoa butter, it's a beautifully cooling and healing cream that gives my skin a gorgeous glow whilst clearing active break outs and preventing new ones from popping up.Also, it makes it soft and doesn't dry it out. It was really cheap as well And the size is decent (50ml tube).It didn't clear me up but I really think over time it's gonna be helpful. I'm tired of putting all chemicals on my face,time to use natural stuff.
Have you tried the Dr.Organic Products? What's your experience with them? And what do you do when your skin breaks out?

Classy but it's always a great catch.
Tuesday:A bun with a bun wrap
The bun is not only a chic hairstyle to show off the face and neck and trendy statement necklaces and embellished collars, but a practical and easy for the busy people!
We can safely say that the fishtail braid or plait is a Beautylish favorite. Whether perfectly neat or purposely messy, the texture and seemingly complicated pattern of this sea-inspired style provide a refreshing visual twist on your typical 3-strand weave.
I totally love loose curls especially making a few braids before bed and when I wake up,I get these lovely loose curls or when I get the time, I use my curling iron!
The French braid is a beautiful and classic hairstyle. It may appear to look complicated, but the finished effect will be worth the effort.
So Saturday is mainly going out and the day to use the flat iron. It always gives a nice look!
Sunday: probbaly formal going to church like I do you should have a bun w/ a rose

As many of you know, I'm collaborating with companies through polyvore! Recently I had a collab with banggood and as a gift I picked a beauty product! I was looking for an expensive one cause I thought the more expensive the better! So as I saw the thing on banggood It was saying that it includes 3 bottles of makeup, which was perfect for me. Each of one was 44ml.
A few days later and after 10 euros spent at tax service, I received the package! As you see,it has 12 bottles(okay the 2 were missing here since I gave them away)
I was expecting to give a full coverage to my face, I was wrong but it's still useful as it could be perfectly used as a make up base! Also, I noticed the ingredients,none of them are too hard on the skin and pretty much this is like a bb cream I guess. I compared it with a bb cream's ingredients at banggod website and the ingredients were exactly the same! Also, it could cover some small imperfections or blemishes.
On the information it says that these creams include vitamin E and C which help and improve skin conditions and control oil.Also It's supposed to protect skin against daily free-radicals.Let me write the pros and cons!
Texture: It is a very lightweight product that feels almost 'wet' when applying despite its thick looking consistency. It smooths out quite easily as it is very liquidy once you apply it.
Pigmentation/Coverage: I would say this is light - medium coverage, leaning toward light. Pigmentation is not amazing, but it does the job. I would say this coverage is as good as any other tinted moisturizer.
Smell: It has a nice smell, I could tell not really heavy but really good!
Moisturization: This foundation is supposed to moisturize the skin but my skin needs a really good moisturization and I wouldn't wear it for that reason. It gives you the soft feeling but I don't think it benefits the skin, it just makes you feel good.
Here's the last photo,blending them all together. As you see If you blend them together you might hit the perfect color depending on your skin color!
Overal rating: 3/5
Would I buy it again? Well, I have like a dozen of them so no. Enough for the rest of the century,haha
Do you use bb creams? If yes, what's your favorite one?
