Question of the Week: – What’s your current favorite hand cream?

Answer: This is TOUGH because I literally have at least 40 creams I use on my hands. But I just bought Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl because it’s the only cruelty-free one I can find anywhere that includes SPF!

Lipglossiping – finds her new ‘darling’ in the form of Darling Diva’s Space Beetle Nail Polish.

Nouveau Cheap – Can a $1 eyeshadow from the dollar store really deliver bold color and pigmentation…even without primer? Come find out!

Pink Sith – has pretty pink nails of steel thanks to the peptide infused nail lacquers from Dermelect Cosmeceuticals.

Prime Beauty – says all tinted moistuizers are NOT created equal. Keep from having a makeup meltdown this summer with  NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30.

Vampy Varnish – Kinda digs the new Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses.

we heart this – Are you one of the many that have pondered whether RevitaLash really works? See for yourself with the we heart this review complete with Before and After Photographs!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains have me wanting more…so I bought more!

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain+Balm Swatches, Photos & Review

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain+Balm

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain+Balm is a new product that currently comes in 15 shades. Update: I’ve heard these aren’t new though they were in the new area of my Rite Aid…maybe these are new shades?

These two-in-one stains feature a felt tip like pen stain on one end and a clear, yet shiny balm on the other end. You basically draw them onto your lips, let the stain dry for about 30 seconds, then apply the clear balm on top for added shine and moisture.

Seems pretty straightforward right? Yes and no. I did have some issues with a couple of these. It could be due to my notoriously dry lips, or just the colors I chose. One worked perfectly though so it makes me think maybe it was the colors…
