It is everything I was looking for and it lead to my newest video - 'Flawless Summer Face Makeup' tutorial.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Collection 2013

If you guys have seen my past favorites videos i have mentioned my love for Maybelline Baby Lips on several occasions. One of my favorite shades that i always keep around is in "Cherry Me", which is a sheer red tint. If you are someone who is still afraid of too much color, i highly suggest trying these lip balms because of the nice sheer color payoff they give.

I've found that these are either hit or miss with a lot of people because they either expect it to be the best moisturizing lip balm or the most pigmented in color but i actually think the Baby Lips are a perfect medium in that they give a good amount of build-able sheer color while also keeping your lips fairly moisturized. More than anything, i really like these because of the easy to wear color it gives your lips but i would not solely depend on these lip balms to keep your lips moisturized for 8 hours, as the packaging suggests.

Maybelline recently released the NEW Baby Lips Electro Collection 2013 and i just couldn't resist in picking a couple up. They spruced up the packaging of the tube and changed it to all black with bright variations of neon writing. I am loving the aesthetic appeal of these for the summer! The colors and the full collection can be seen here.

MissKL Beauty Haul Swatches

Here is a closer look at the beauty items i hauled from MissKL on my recent "Summer Clothing Haul" video on my channel! In case you were not aware that MissKL carried beauty products- they have some of my favorite brands available! I was excited to be able to haul some new items i have yet to try.

1. theBALM Bahama mama bronzer, this is the perfect matte shade for contouring without looking too muddy or orange! The pigmentation is well worth it because a little of this goes a long way! I love the packaging of this brand- its cheeky and so compact to take along if needed.

2. LimeCrime Opaque Lipstick "Poisonberry", This is my very first LimeCrime product and i was so excited to try it! It definitely lives up to the hype in quality and pigmentation. This lipstick is super creamy and smells like delicious vanilla! I'm going to need to stock up on more LimeCrime products in the future. 

If you thought the initial color from the tube was a bit intimidating (like me), don't worry because the deep plum color is actually very wearable on the lips! The swatch shows the color is actually closer to a plumy fuchsia pink! This lipstick is extremely long wearing and it even leaves a tint of color on your lips afterwards.

3. theBalm Stainiac lipstain "Beauty Queen", I've been dying to try a nice lip stain for days when i don't want to fuss with lipstick or gloss. This is the perfect thing to throw on if you're on the go! It pairs well with a fresh face if you just want a wash of color to brighten your complexion. The actual product has a very slight and non-offensive floral scent and no real taste. The consistency out of the tube is almost gel-like and very easy to blend onto the lips. 

This is what i was left with after wiping off the initial swatch. The stain is subtle but build-able and it has a pretty decent staying power. The color is a pretty hot pink/red stain and looks like you've eaten berries on your lips :)

January SeasonsBox

So sorry that this post is just going up now but i thought i'd just include the close up/detail pictures of the January SeasonsBox anyway! I was so pleased with this box and im so happy with the variety that was provided, i can't wait to get my February box!

A few of my favorite items were the Tea Tree Whipped Shea & the Vance Kitira hand woven scarf! The Tea tree whipped shea is such a unique texture because it looks & feels like a light, fluffy cream but once its in contact with your skin it literally just melts and becomes a "liquid" consistency! It really sinks into your skin and provides great moisture!
