Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Swatches and Review

I'm pretty sure I first heard of these lip balms through Nouveau Cheap and I found myself wondering what the hype is all about. Lately I've been into using Aquaphor as a lip balm so it was intriguing to try out these stick balms. These retail for $3.99 (may vary depending on retailer) for 4.4 grams/.15oz of product.

The Baby Lips Lip Balms tout themselves as being a clinical strength moisturizing lip balm with SPF 20 sunscreen and are supposed to provide 8 hour moisture along with lip renewal. After four weeks, your lips are supposed to be 82% visibly less dry, 94% less rough, 77% more supple, and 77% better looking. I haven't tested these balms for four weeks but I'll try to and update when I'm done with it.

I got the two clear balms and three of the tinted balms. They each have a different flavor. The two clear ones are 05 Quenched and 10 Peppermint. The three tinted ones are 15 Cherry Me, 25 Pink Punch, and 30 Peach Kiss. Peach Kiss is the only one with shimmer.



These all have a rather thin consistency on the lips and they add a lot of shine. As someone who prefers the heavier consistency of more liquidy balms, this felt thin in comparison The balm lasted about an hour before it wore away. I'll talk about the two clear balms first and then show off swatches of the tinted ones.

Quenched: This is supposed to have a lemon basil flavor. When I first smelled this, I immediately thought of the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment has this amazing lemon-sugar scent to it and it's absolutely addicting. Quenched smelled the same, or very very close to it (for me I couldn't really smell the basil component, it just smelled like lemon-sugar). I wouldn't go as far to say that they're exact dupes (The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment has different ingredients and feels a little heavier on the lips) but if you're looking for a lemon-sugar scented balm, this is it!

Peppermint: This is supposed to have a peppermint flavor and man it is dead on. It smells like an excellent spearmint/peppermint chewing gum and there's nothing wrong with that in my book. I enjoy the scent of peppermint/spearmint and have been looking for a minty lip balm for ages. I used to like the C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Balm but that one leaves my lips looking white and paleish whereas the Peppermint balm doesn't do that at all, it is lovely and clear.

As always, bare lips


Cherry Me: This is supposed to have a cherry flavor. It does have a maraschino cherry scent to it, sort of sickeningly sweet cherry to me. I'm not too fond of the scent it isn't so strong that you'll detect it on your lips as you wear it. This has a pinky tint to it and my favorite of the three.


Pink Punch: This is supposed to have a fruit punch flavor and I'd say this is pretty dead on. I even smelled a bit of a pineapple bite to it. The tint is a milky bright pink but I'm not sure that it suits me.


Peach Kiss: This is supposed to have a peach flavor. This one was a bit different for me, sometimes it smelled peachy and sometimes it smelled waxy. I initially wasn't sure about the color in the tube but it is rather sheer on and it just adds a nice shimmer/sparkle to your lips.


And arm swatches! Left to right: Cherry Me, Pink Punch, and Peach Kiss


My lips do feel soft but it does require reapplication. The tints are pretty though depending on your skintone and how pigmented your lips are. I feel like the packaging and the name sort of contrasts with its target market. The packaging does look cheap to me, especially with the writing on the clear tube. I'm a little confused about who this product is being marketed for. The name and packaging made me think at first that it was marketed towards kids but then it goes into it being clinical strength and how you can see results after four weeks.

I've been using it on and off and while my lips feel softer I don't know if they necessarily feel more hydrated? I disagree that you get 8 hour moisture out of it, it's something you need to reapply fairly often.

Would I buy it for myself? I'd probably get Quenched and Peppermint because I love the flavors but I don't know that I'd go out of my way to get the tinted balms.

TL;DR: thin consistency, must like stick balms, needs reapplication, nice tints, and some nice scents

Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara Review

Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara has a rather poor reputation amongst consumers yet an overly inflated one amongst magazines so it still manages to weasel its way into beauty awards year after year. I really didn't have high hopes for this mascara, not at all. When I think of the name "Great Lash" I don't particularly associate it with something positive. Still though, I thought I'd give this mascara a try. The price seems to vary but I saw it on Maybelline's site for $6.40.


From what I've read, this is the same Great Lash mascara formula only with a new brush. The Great Lash Lots of Lashes brush is teardrop shaped with plastic bristles extending outwards and tapering to the tip with sort of a small flat plug at the top of the brush. It is a rather small brush.


Surprisingly I actually liked this mascara but there's a caveat to that. I only liked it after it "aged" or dried out a bit and I believe it's a sentiment echoed by others. When I first tried it out, the formula was too wet on my lashes and made a mess which was only exacerbated by the brush. The bristles are tapered so there are very short ones near the tip and lots of product collected at the tip of the wand which wasn't cleared out by the stopper so you'd have to scrape off the excess which was still difficult when the mascara had a really wet formula.

Hopefully you can see how much product collects at the tip.


The wand worked fine when I was using it through my outer lashes but because excess product collected at the tip, it would deposit so much onto my inner lashes that they became a clump fest and it felt really heavy. I tried it, didn't like it but kept trying it several times. After letting it sit for two weeks, I noticed that the formula got a little drier and a little stiffer. I tried it out and lo and behold, it was so much better when it wasn't such a wet consistency!

When it comes to my lashes, they're very very straight and naturally angle downwards. I can't wear washable mascaras because they always wilt the curl in my lashes and this mascara was no exception.

Here's what it looks like on my lashes. Bare lashes on the left, Great Lash mascara on the right.


Hopefully you can see that the mascara added volume, separated, and evened out my lashes but did limp the curl a bit. I think someone looking for a natural but amped up look to their lashes who can wear washable mascaras can try out the Great Lash Lots of Lashes, provided they're patient enough to wait for the formula to dry out.

I believe the Lots of Lashes mascara is only available in a Washable version so I won't say I'd purchase it again. I think it's a bit silly that I had to wait for the formula to dry up before it worked well in conjunction with the brush. If you like the formula, you can get the regular Great Lash, you just won't get the fancy brush. I haven't tried the normal Great Lash so I can't comment on its performance versus this one. Either way, not repurchasing because it's not a mascara I'd wear.

TL;DR Version: Won't repurchase, mascara needs to dry out before it works well with the brush, another Great Lash product.

Have you tried the Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara?

Gilded Sugar EOTD

You know that hiatus? It was supposed to stamp down my internal need to constantly post but instead made me twitchy about not posting enough. The hiatus will probably be downgraded to me posting less versus taking a month long break.

I found a decant of Sugarpill's Royal Sugar loose eyeshadow that I didn't realize I had made. I don't know why I decided to gift it away and after using I may have to buy another jar.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving. I've already spent part of mine with the boyfriend's family, watching everyone make a fool of themselves playing Dance Central 2. Tonight is Thanksgiving Dinner with my family with our not so traditional habit of lamb instead of turkey.

Enjoy the holiday and the time spent with your family!

Reader Feedback and Suggestions!

While I'm still on a bit of a break (I'm finding myself with more free time than I thought between schoolwork) I thought I'd get your guys' feedback and opinions on the blog.

Do you guys have any suggestions on things I can do to improve the blog? Should I work on my writing to be a little more personable? Do you prefer seeing direct sunlight pictures along with daylight pictures when I do swatches?

Is there a certain number of posts you'd like to see before you have to click "older posts" to see prior ones? I've got it set on three right now because of the number of pictures but tell me if you would like to see the numbers changed. Tell me if you'd like to see more reviews, swatches, makeup pictures or less of something.

I'd really really appreciate the feedback! Feel free to be anonymous if you're not comfortable saying something. I'm really looking to improve the blog.

e.l.f. Cream Eyeshadows in Bronzed and Pewter Swatches

*I'm still on a bit of a hiatus but I had forgotten about this entry along with a few I did before hiatus time which will get posted too!*

I contemplated not reviewing the items I got in my last e.l.f. order considering the state of one of the products but I thought it'd be wasteful not to. I figured someone might be looking for reviews and swatches of these products and I could be useful in that sense.

I've said this before but I really dislike the packaging. The damned things are huge and I think it's just a waste of plastic.

You get .35 oz or 10g of product for $3.00. I don't think I've ever paid full price for anything e.l.f. because of how consistently they hold sales. Just wait for one of their man constant sales.

This is Pewter.


This is Bronzed.


In reality, it isn't that brown looking. Some of the shimmers or pigments migrated to the top but it comes off after a swipe or two.


Here are the swatches I did. No base, just swiped on.

In daylight


In direct sunlight


Pewter is a really nice dark silvery gray, maybe with a hint of brown. Bronzed is a bronze color. I found that applying it with a brush gave it the best pigmentation; applying it with my fingers made it sheer out a little too much.

This does need to be worn over an eyeshadow primer if you've got oily eyelids.

Have you indulged in any e.l.f. cream eyeshadows?


Schoolwork is rapidly kicking my ass and it's all starting to pile up close to the end of the semester.

I'm also going on a mini vacation this weekend (San Diego!) for a professional conference so I've got no time to dedicate to the blog. I think going on a hiatus will help me not feel so pressured to keep posting.

In lieu of an actual post today, check out the Follower Appreciation post on Phyrra's blog and Funny Face Beauty's Beauty Social Post (some of it featuring me!)

I'll still be twittering because I love to twitter(follow me at @maimaimaiii if you want to!) but I probably won't be posting for another month. See you after finals!

NYX Black Label Lipstick in Tribute to Marilyn: Swatch and Review

I own a couple of the NYX Round Lipsticks and I was wondering if there was a large difference between the Round Lipstick and the more expensive Black Label Lipstick that NYX makes. This retails for $7.50 on NYX's site.

I found the Round Lipstick and the Black Label Lipstick to be very similar in texture. Both lipsticks are soft and with the Black Label Lipstick it's got incredible pigmentation after one swipe.

It does have a sweet grape candy/Dimetapp scent to it. I personally don't like that scent in my lipsticks (if more companies made a minty lipstick I'd really get behind that) and if you're sensitive to scents or fragrances you really won't like it.

Here's a swatch of it. It's very much a berry red and if you do a thin layer/stain, the berry tones come out even more.


This swipe really shows off the berry tone to it. This did stain my arm a little in the swatch but it wasn't as bad on my lips. Be wary about it though!


Do you own any of the NYX Black Label Lipsticks?

theBalm Makeup Sets at TJ Maxx (Extremely Picture Heavy!)

I swear every week I go to TJ Maxx and every time I go I find a new theBalm set or more makeup and skincare findings. I think TJ Maxx is doing a great job at improving their store image and I'm happy to see some really high end brands being sold at a price I can easily afford. I'm on a no buy so I can't buy any of the things I saw today but if you're looking to get maybe an early holiday present for someone into makeup, this is a good place to start.

As far as I know (as in after doing a quick google search) these sets haven't been released yet. If you're looking to get everything at half price or better, get thee to a TJ Maxx!

I'll be talking about seven different sets I saw today. As far as I know, all of the items in the sets are full sized with the exception of one item in the last set .These first four cost $22.99 and retail between $53 and $59. They're packaged in a zippered bag that has plastic sides that are decorated with different pictures depending on the set.

Oh So Pretty set.

I feel pretty....


oh so pretty, I feel pretty

The back of the set. You get a Betty-Lou Manizer, Mini Kabuki Brush, Plump Your Pucker in Passion My Fruit, and Hot Ticket Nail Polish in Petunia


and witty,

Oh So Witty set.


This set has a tube of Cheater! Mascara, a pot of Overshadow mineral eyeshadow in Work is Overrated, and a pot of Balms Away Eye Makeup Remover.


and bright

Oh So Bright...kit


This set has a Mary-Lou Manizer, Mini Kabuki Brush, Plump Your Pucker Lipgloss in Pink My Lemonade and a Hot Ticket Nail Polish in Princess.


and I pity any girl who isn't me tonight!

Oh So Versatile set.


This set has a tube of Stainiac in Beauty Queen, a Bahama Mama Eyeshadow/Bronzer, and Hot Mama! Eyeshadow/Blush


These are the other three sets.

This set is the Smoky Eye Kit. This has a retail value of $87 and costs $29.99.


This has two Shady Lady shadows in Mischievous Marissa and Sexy Stacey, an Overshadow in If You're Rich, I'm Single, a Cheater! Mascara, and a pot of Balms Away Eye Makeup Remover.


This is the Smooth Talker Lip Set. I am pretty sure this set and the next one are for the holidays because underneath the name of the set, there's a spot where you can right to whom it's for and who it's from. This sells for $24.99 and has a retail value of $68.

You get a Stainiac in Beauty Queen, two Plump Your Pucker glosses in Ruby My Grapefruit and Cocoa My Coconut and a BalmShelter Tinted Gloss in Girl Next Door.


and lastly, this is the Beauty Essentials Set. If we're being nitpicky here, the BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer is the only product in the kit that isn't full sized, it's .10 oz smaller. As you can see, it has a retail value of $105 and costs $39.99.

Again I apologize, I didn't manage to get the back of the packaging listing the shades. I'm pretty sure the Stainiac included is in the shade Beauty Queen and the tinted moisturizer is in Light.


I so wish I could buy some of these things for myself but I'm on a budget and it sucks :( If you do find these in stores, buy them!

Tick:Tock Cosmetics Originals Collection Swatches and Review

Two weeks ago I did a review on some of Tick:Tock Cosmetics' eyeshadows and I expressed my opinion on how they could improve their company. The owners of the company read the post and emailed me back talking about each of the concerns/points I had and how they were going to address them in the future which I really appreciated.

They offered to send me a sample pack of their upcoming eyeshadows so I have nine colors that I'll be covering today and also samples of their eyeshadow bases which I'll talk about in another post.

These eyeshadows will be added to their line of Originals eyeshadows. Here's the link to their swatches of the collection on their Facebook. These need to be used with a primer/base, and not by itself because they don't perform well without one. The colors are pretty but their shadows need work with adhesion.

They unfortunately were a pain to photograph; I feel like my pictures don't do the color shift justice. I'll try to compensate for my pictures by giving better descriptions of the colors.

Unless I say otherwise below, they all needed to be patted on not swept on for the best adhesion and payoff.

*Forgot to add, these were over e.l.f. mineral eye primer!*

Back to the Future, Clepsydra, and From Dusk til Dawn


In Direct Sunlight


Back to the Future: This is described as a black based green full of shimmer and holographic glitter. I don't know why it looks so matte in the direct sunlight picture, it really isn't at all in real life. The shimmer is much more prominent than the holographic glitter.

Clepsydra: This is described as a dark greenish blue with purple shimmer and sparkle. In real life I found the base color to be a lighter. Oh man alive, this is such a pretty color. This reminds me of Fyrinnae's Catrina Cabaret but more blue toned and lighter. I wish wish wish I got the gorgeous purple shift in the picture, it's absolutely gorgeous.

From Dusk til Dawn: This is described as a medium orangey brown with blue sparkles. I found that it was a lot lighter than in the product pictures. I really liked this neutral in the set, it's something I could wear as a wash of color on my eyes and was one of the few shadows that didn't need to be patted on, it swept on so nicely. The blue sparkle to it is more evident in the daylight picture.

Frozen in Time, Half Past Crazy, and Happy Hour

In daylight


In direct sunlight


Frozen in Time: This is described as an icy blue with lots of blue shimmer and sparkle. For some reason, their facebook product picture of it is really off. It's not that grey toned, it's really a light icy blue. The blue sparkle and shimmer is prominent in the daylight picture, not so much in the direct sunlight picture.

Half Past Crazy: This is described as a black based red, loaded with shimmer and sparkle. The base is kind of a brownish black and it did want to pull brown. Loved the sparkle to it but I wish the base color was just as pigmented on my eyes as it was in the swatch. The base color felt sort of sheer on the eyes and I mostly got the sparkle. I think this will benefit the most from a dark base.

Happy Hour: This is described as a medium yellow bursting with blue shimmer. This photographed very lemony on my skin but it is a more goldenrod color.

Sexy Time, Tempus Fugit, Time Warp Again

In daylight


Direct Sunlight


Sexy Time: This is described as a black based blue, full of shimmer and holographic glitter. This was probably the trickiest to photograph. There is a lot more blue shimmer and holographic sparkle to it than in the pictures. I really liked this but the blue shimmer isn't as prominent over a black base the way it's shown in the Facebook picture. Unfortunately, this had zero adhesion over my e.l.f. mineral eye primer, it just wouldn't stick. You'll need a good sticky base for this.

Tempus Fugit: This is described as purpley/blue in the jar, going on with a heavy green sheen. Yeah I don't see that. In the baggie it's a blue-grey eyeshadow that really leaned grey in the direct sunlight picture. The daylight picture is more accurate in color but I hope you can see the green sheen to it!

Time Warp Again: This is described as a true black, loaded with every color of shimmer imaginable. To me it's not a true black but a charcoal black. This is Mardi Gras in a jar. Traditional Mardi Gras colors are green, purple and yellow and I saw all those shimmer colors prominently in the eyeshadow. It made me think of the sprinkles of a King Cake. Same adhesion issues as Sexy Time unfortunately, it just wasn't sticking on my primer. You'll need a good sticky base with this, probably a dark one.

In case you were curious, here's a comparison between Frozen in Time and Tempus Fugus

In daylight


In direct sunlight


I also took a picture of the eyeshadows in the baggies in case you wanted another look at them. I said it in the comments but Half Past Crazy looks stupidly brown on camera when it isn't in real life and all the different shifts and shimmers are muted but you'll get a good idea of what the base colors look like! From Dusk til Dawn applies lighter than in the bag and Tempus Fugit pulls too gray in the picture.


I'm glad to see that they're doing more unique colors. I loved the look of Clepsydra and Time Warp Again. I don't know if I'll be getting more until they improve the adhesion of the eyeshadow.

Disclaimer: The eyeshadows were sent to me for review. All opinions are my own and I wasn't compensated or paid for reviewing.

This post is a bit late but I hope you find it useful and will like being introduced to someone you may already read or watch!

New Favorite Youtuber/Blogger

Let this picture of Dustin lure you into the post.

dustin hunter

I've been watching Dustin from DustyoHunter for a while now but I don't think I've expressed my exuberance for him properly. He mainly does review and swatch videos on his channel along with tutorials. I absolutely positively love his video style. He's said that he has stylized his videos similar to the way Alton Brown does his show Good Eats and I'm a huge Alton Brown fan so of course I'd like him.

In this day and age, most Youtubers are a dime a dozen, especially beauty youtubers. What I like the most about his videos is how high quality everything is and how planned out they are. He also tends to pack a lot of entertainment and information into a video while keeping it fun to watch. The videos are professionally done and I believe he scripts his videos before recording but it still maintains a sense of casualness without the excessive "ums" and filler words.

His Tarte for True Blood video is the perfect example to show how much effort he puts into his videos. In addition to reviewing and showing swatches of the collection, he did two mini tutorials off of two characters in the show. He doesn't post every week or so because of the time it takes to do each video but all of his older ones are nice to watch.

Of the things I like the most though, I'd say its his ability to make me look at cosmetic brands a different way. He reviews Estee Lauder quite a bit and I think it's all too easy now to associate the brand as catering to an older generation (don't know why I think that, I just do) but his reviews and swatches make me think differently. That and I think he's probably the only guru I've seen on youtube talking about Aveda anything.

If you're going to watch only one of his videos, make it this one. You'll laugh your face off.

You can also check out his review blog here.

Must Read Posts

I'm pretty sure I'll have a link to one of Anna's posts every time I do one of these but can you blame me?

I'm so glad Lady in a Top Hat is posting again! (I hope at least). She is my swatch inspiration.

I only recently found Sandra's blog but I loved this look (and her eye shape) so you should check her out!

Shut up and take my money!(woot woot for Futurama references)

A super super pretty look with one of my favorite eyeshadows!

I'm not into pinks or light purples but I want these just because they're awesome (Tell her I sent you :)!)

This is a rather interesting experiment, I know I would just like to be left alone so I'm hoping that this is happening already in the US!

Match Your Eyeshadow to Your Eye Color EOTD

I did this look for the "Match Your Eyeshadow to Your Eye Color" Makeup Showcase on the Never Too Much Sparkle! facebook group (You can join the group and find more information about it here). I haven't used matte eyeshadows in a while so I decided to bust mine out for the look.

Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Eyeshadow Swatches and Review

Another part of my prize pack from Utopista's giveaway were some Dawn Eyes Cosmetics samples. I got five eyeshadow samples, Georgia Peach, Holographic White, Metallic Teal, Naughty Girl, and Purple Forest. Each sample contains 1/8 tsp of product and has a sticker with the name on it. The samples retail for $1 each and shipping is free for all orders on the site for a limited amount of time. The full sizes are in a 5 gram sifter jar with 1.2-1.5 grams of product.

There aren't individual listings, just groups based off of color so I'll link to the color group the eyeshadows are in and you can just scroll down to find the specific shadow.

Georgia Peach, Holographic White, Metallic Teal, Naughty Girl, Purple Forest


Swatched over ELF Mineral Eye Primer.

From left to right: Georgia Peach, Holographic White, Metallic Teal, Naughty Girl, Purple Forest

Daylight picture. The picture quality isn't the best but it's the most accurate picture of Metallic Teal.


Direct Sunlight Pictures. I apologize for Metallic Teal, like I said it's more accurate in the daylight picture. I hope you can see the green and purple flash present in Purple Forest and the green flash is more present in this picture. Although it doesn't seem like it, there is a holographic sparkle to Holographic White.


You can really see the purple flash in Purple Forest in this picture.


Here's a picture where you can really see the holographic sparkle of Holographic White


Georgia Peach: It's a described as a satin peach with copper and green sparks. My favorite eyeshadow out of the bunch.

Holographic White: It's described as a silvery white with holographic glitter. I think it's more silver than white and indeed there is a holographic sparkle, even in daylight. For best results in daylight though, I'd apply this over a glitter fixative and if you really wanted to see a holographic sparkle, go outside in direct sunlight. It has a slightly gritty texture because of the glitter.

Metallic Teal: It's described as a bright satiny metallic glitter, no glitter. There's actually a green sheen to it around the edges of the eyeshadow but my camera couldn't pick that up. I kept getting bald spots when I was applying it on my eyes.

Naughty Girl: It's described as a black based deep plum satin with copper undertones with a hint of purple and sparks of pink and purple. The listing picture is definitely misleading in my opinion. This is way more satiny than shimmery. It is basically a near black eyeshadow with purple and pink sparks but it can be difficult to get the sparks to show up, even over a glitter fixative.

Purple Forest: This is described as a color shifting shadow ranging from a deep rich purple, through charcoal grey, then to a rich deep green packed with gold and purple sparkle. You can see the color shift between the two direct sunlight pictures. Required a lot of packing on, didn't have that great of adhesion or pigmentation. Definitely better swatched than applied on.

I don't really like the website, especially the search bar. I was using it to look for the listing of "Georgia Peach" and the first couple of results were of the raw image files of the eyeshadow and the actual listing was the sixth result down the list. "Holographic White was the fourth result, "Naughty Girl" was the fifth, "Metallic Teal" was the odd one out because it was the first result but "Purple Forest" was the worst one to find. The result for it wasn't even on the first page, it was the 2nd result on the second page. It shouldn't be this difficult to find the eyeshadow listing right?

I don't like the way they have the raw images files on the site, especially since it clogs up their search results. I personally don't find it necessary to have that many pictures although others might because it shows off the sparkles. Since there are so many pictures of swatches of the eyeshadows, I'd prefer a slideshow versus all the links to the swatches.

The layout of the site could use some work. There's too many font changes and I'd like to see the options in a sidebar as opposed to the top bar, individual listings, and an improved search bar. They're still in the process of finishing the ingredient lists for individual eyeshadows.

Website annoyances aside, everything I got was okay. I really liked Georgia Peach and Holographic White; I had problems with the rest of the shades I got so I don't know if I'll buy again, unless I see other swatches of the colors.
