I'VE MISSED YOU ALL!

LONG TIME NO BLOG <3




     Just wanted to stop in & let you all know that I'm still here.  My deepest apologies for going super M.I.A on here, but you know.. honey gotta make that money, ya dig?  I've literally lived at work & only slept at home.  That meant no time for sharing new product splurges, reviews and pics.. but trust, I WILL make a comeback & I've got tonssss of stuff I wanna share.  In the mean time, just thought I'd leave you with a lil facetime. *smooches*
      I've been doing this double winged-tip thing with my liner lately & have gotten so many compliments.  Give it a whirl. Simple, yet nontraditional.  I'm also wearing Maybelline's new Color Sensational Lipstick in "Flawless Fuschia" from their Porcelains collection (Limited Edition only) lined with NYX's Slim Lip Pencil in "Pale Pink" (perfect match for this lipstick).

FOTD: Lip Butta' Me Up

lolli lolli lolli...
REVLON Lip Butter in "Lollipop"

      This color is SO me.  Too bad I don't care for these lip butters though. ONE, you don't get a lot of product.  Like seriously?  I thought I picked up a jacked up lip butter cuz when I went to unwind it, about an inch of product came up.  God forbid you love one color so much that you use it so often & run out quickly.  TWO, I don't know about any of you gals, but after wearing this for just 3 hours, I noticed a little bit of bleeding, even WITH a lip liner (which I ALWAYS use), particularly on the corners of my mouth.  It's like the formula is so buttery that it slips (did that sound dirty?).  Yes, the formula is nice.. super moisturizing on the pucker, and I did like the glossy finish it gave me.  But I just don't feel these were worth they hype that they got, unless you're recently getting into lip products & don't have an extensive collection.  I can honestly say that I can do without these.. enough to pass up on even if they're on sale or some shit.  Oh welp.
