Hello! Today I went to the post office to pick up a package and also stopped by at Walmart to purchase a few things. Walmart is such a pain to shop in especially for makeup! The products that I want to buy are always sold out or open -_- and not to mention its always overcrowded!!! Boo…
My random loot of things ^_^
Maybelline's Baby Lips in Cherry Me and Mega Plush Volum' Mascara in Very Black
I got sooo excited when I found the baby lips, It's so hard to find! It was hidden inside of a clearance bucket along with the mega plush mascara. The mega blush mascaras that were displayed were only the brown mascaras so when I found the last black one, I grabbed it :)
Interesting wand, and flexible brush... The formula looks watery, hmm not so crazy about that but, we'll have to see... Haven't used it yet so I can't judge....
Edit as of 6/24/12: Full review can be found here
Maybelline's Baby Lips in Cherry Me VS. Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
Maybelline's Baby Lips definitely a winner when it comes to product size and pricing. Look at the difference!
Based on the swatches, I still love Revlon's Pink Truffle!!!
Pink Truffle- Opaque color, very pigmented, beautiful finish
Peach Parfait- Pretty pink with golden shimmer
Cherry Me- Very pigmented balm, and smells like a cherry jollyrancher :)
New vs Old: I still prefer Pink Truffle compared to Peach Parfait. It matches well with my skin tone. I wasn't too fond of the gold shimmer in Peach Parfait. But both colors are beautiful though!
OFF! We have a lot of mosquitos where I live so I decided to get a mosquito coil for our deck and an insect repellant spray for my friends and family. The new version comes in a bigger size now its unscented with aloe vera.
Works With Water (sponsored)
I was contacted by one of works with water representative after posting my previous walmart haul and showing a picture of my horrible bare skin. I've always suffered from acne and still do today, but with the magic of makeup I'm able to cover it up. They offered me to try a month's sample of their clear skin regime, and I thought I would give it a try.

What is help: clear skin?
help: clear skin contains Praventin™ a clinically proven bioactive protein, rich in lactoferrin, which has been shown to reduce the development of the bacteria responsible for many skin impurities, helping to prevent the formation of blemishes due to its antimicrobial effects.
Simply empty a sachet once daily* into your favourite beverage or soft food (hot or cold), stir until dissolved and look forward to clearer healthier skin in as little as eight weeks.
Suitable for vegetarians, diabetics & lactose intolerant people. Gluten free.
Initial Thoughts: I don't know if this will work but I am open enough to give it a try. I've taken the accutane pill in the past and that is how my acne got cleared up initially but I had terrible side effects and never want to take it again. The thought of digesting something internally sounds a lot more intimidating than a cream or a face wash but after reading the ingredients and knowing that its all natural is a big relief.
What I can say for now: Packaging and compact mirror is really cute. I hope I don't break out more or have crazy side affects. And it would be extremely awesome if it works. I like the "sensa" aspect to it all. I hope this experience will be safe and I will definitely post before and after pics and a full review later on.
