Maybelline Baby Lips

When I went to the store last night for groceries, I wandered over to the makeup aisle, as any respectable girl would do. I picked up two new nail polishes (yayayayayayay) and some face lotion to cure my recent death-by-acne face wash. As I was rolling out, I noticed Maybelline had a mascara and lip balm bundle and let’s face it, I’m a sucker for end-of-the-aisle product placement. I knew I needed a new tube of mascara, so I decided “What the hey.” After I got it home, I immediately had to try it out. The verdict: so, so smooth! The color is a little too pink for me (Pink Punch), so I definitely apply with caution, but I love the way it smells and feels on my lips! I will definitely check out their other colors.

Maybelline Great Lash ‘Lots of Lashes’

This mascara made my lashes ridiculously long! The heart-shaped brush gave me volume, while helping me coat the tiny lashes in the corners of my eye. The verdict: great mascara for a great price. I am very pleased!

Petites Nail Polish – An affordable Wal-Mart nail product, this polish went on smooth and dried very quickly considering the two coats I had applied. The color I chose was Vintage Gray and looks nice with my light skin. I highly recommend. Sure, OPI and Essie are great, but this polish is considerably cheaper and seems to be lasting!
