Maybelline Color Whisper-Pink Possibilities swatch

Hey, Everyone.

Maybelline has launched a new line of lipsticks called Color Whisper for Spring 2013.

They are quite similar to Revlon's Lip Butters.

They are described as pure color pigments suspended in a gel with no heavy waxes for see-through color with a touch of shine.

I happened to run into the display at my Target with most of the 20 shades bought up already. 
The only one I found that was unmolested was Pink Possibilities.

LA Fresh Acetone-Free nail polish remover, an accidental love story.

Hey, Everyone!

I am back. 
We're pretty much settled down now. 
We moved from the East coast to the West coast. Literally. North Carolina to LA. Whew. 
And yes, we DROVE! Ugh. lol. 

Anyways, I packed my nail polish instead of having the movers move them, but I didn't have my nail polish remover.
Luckily, I had these handy little LA Fresh nail polish remover pads from a previous Birchbox so I put them to use.

I did not read the packaging before I used them, I just knew they were polish remover and I needed to get my polish off. And it was glitter on top of glitter!
I was kind of worried because I only had two packets. I didn't even think one would get half a hand done before the alcohol dried up.....

I opened the packet and started removing the glitter bomb and the first thing I noticed was it smelled really nice. 
Then I noticed it was oily and not evaporating. What!?
And it got ALL ten glitter explosions cleaned up!
And my nails were not dried up cracked little things! 

So I looked at the packing and did some investigating.

Fresh Tuscan Orange scent.

Oooooh, I see now. This nail polish remover is actually good for your nails. Ah, it all makes sense now.
And it smells nice too.  

And to top it all off they are 100% biodegradable and cruelty free.

This one little pad got ten glitter on top of glitter nails clean! 
I am amazed and I am pretty hard to impress. 

My overall opinion: I LOVE these!

Two thumbs up.

You can get a box of 18 for about $10 at the Birchbox online shop, or look around Amazon and other online stores. 

What's your favorite nail polish remover? Do you have a non-acetone favorite?
