Maybelline Baby Lips-Peach Kiss Swatch

I know everyone and their mother has probably tried out Maybelline's Baby Lips, but I had these photos on my computer and thought I'd go ahead and post them anyway. 

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss

I am a sucker for packaging and these are so darn pretty. They remind me of Easter eggs in their springy, pastel colors.

Garnier-Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil review

*I am a member of BzzAgent and received this product to test out and share my opinion on. All opinions are true and are my own. I am not being compensated* 

Hey, Everyone!
Today I'll be talking about Garnier's Miracle dry oil for hair, skin, and nails. 
Like my statement above says, I got to try this out for free. I've had it for a little while now and can fully review it.

The first thing that caught my eye about this oil is it's packaged in a spray bottle.
I've tried a few hair and/or skin oils and they came in a non-spray type bottle.
I really liked that it has a spray nozzle instead of pouring it out into my hands as I've had quite a few accidents with pouring too much out. Ugh! And too much oil is not fun to deal with...

I expected this oil to smell like the traditional Garnier scent, which it did not. 
It has a light floral scent similar to BioSilk shampoo. I can tolerate Garnier's traditional scent...this was cutting it close. Florals and I do not mix. 
This scent was not too overpowering so it didn't give me a headache, but I really don't prefer it.

Spraying the oil directly into your hair can leave your hair looking, well, oily. I found that spraying it into your hair and rubbing it into your hands/arms/wherever then using the left over oil and patting it into your hair works a lot better. 

I really liked it for my skin and nails. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave an oily/greasy residue at all.

5fl oz is around $6 at most drugstores.

My Overall Thoughts:

I love the spray bottle. It's available for a great price. The scent I could live without, but it is a nice oil. 
Don't spray it directly onto your hair unless you hardly spray any at all. 
It's not my favorite oil for hair, but I really like it for the body and for the price you can't really go wrong. 
I'd give it a 4/5.

Have you tried out Garnier's Miracle Dry oil yet? What are your thoughts? What are some of your favorite oils?

Dupe for Julep's January

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I decided I should go for a nice tomato red manicure. I dug around my polish collection and found Essie's Silken Cord and painted away. I kept thinking it looked familiar and then it hit me! This looks exactly like Julep's January. 
So, I immediately had to compare. 
This is what I found...

Maybelline Color Whisper-Lust for Blush swatch

Hello, Hello.

My Target finally got in a new display of the Color Whispers that were unmolested. FINALLY!

I have Pink Possibilities reviewed and swatched here.

As soon as Target restocked I knew I had to get my hands on Lust for Blush.

They're known for smart beauty solutions that are quick-fix, multi-purpose and unique. 
Basically, great for women on the go. ;)

Maybelline Baby Lips-Cherry Me swatch & review.

So, I'm really late on the Baby Lips bandwagon...
 I said I was not going to buy more lip balm products until I used up the tons of balms I already had.
Well...my three year old is obsessed with all things make-up and raided my balm stash so I had an excuse to try out Maybelline's baby lips!

I picked up Cherry Me for about $3 at my local Target.

Dior Au Natural Nude Look Palette-swatch & review

Hey, Everyone.

I've been eyeing this Dior palette for quite some time now and have been hesitant to pick it up. 
With it being around the Holiday's, I said what the heck, I'll treat myself. 
And if you know me, you know I piled on some free gift cards I picked up through Viggle.*
*Haven't heard of Viggle? Click the link and check out my post about it*  

The Dior Au Natural Nude Look Palette is a limited edition palette available at Sephora for $59.

This kit includes a full sized bronzer, three eyesadows, and two lip glosses in neutral shades all wrapped up in Dior's classic cannage style palette. 

The quality of the palette itself is amazing.
 It's also about the size of my hand.

Tournament of Roses Parade 2013

I know this is not beauty related but we had a chance to attend the 2013 Tournament of Roses Parade this year so I thought I'd bring y'all along. 

The "Rose Parade" has been around since 1890, including flower covered floats, marching bands, and equestrians.
About 1 million people from all over the country were in attendance this year.

This year's theme was, "Oh, the places you'll go!"

We hope you have a Happy New Year!
