Rimmel :)

*~Airy Fairy~*

So I was at CVS on the hunt for the perfect mascara which I think I have I finally found it but thats a whole different posting :). So while I was there I picked up a lipstick by rimmel called Airy Fairy 070. I blame this on Youtube because of the videos raving on this lipstick I had to get it. I agree with the videos it is a very nice lipstick. It is a mauve color when you look at it out of the package but once on it is a nice shade of like a frosty pink. The frost is slight so very suitable to a variety of skin shades. It suits my skin and I am a NC40.. It is so soft and creamy and has a slight sweet scent nothing to overwhelming. The packaging is nice and sleek. Staying power is decent but you do need to re apply every now and then. That isn't a con when the price is only $5.95!! Definite Steal!

Crazy for GaGa

So I bought the Lady Gaga lipstick..
I had seen many reviews on youtube stating how the color looks frightening which made me skeptical about purchasing it. As a swatch I think I can understand what the gurus were talking about. When applied I think it depends entirely on you. Honestly the color is FABULOUS :). I'm in love with it and I think it's very wearable. So the lipstick comes in the signature Viva Glam packaging black and red around the middle. Once you open it on the inside it has Lady Gaga's signature. I would describe the color as a Barbie pink. Once on it is very buildable and you can wear just one coat that give your lips a nice pinkish tint or build it up so you have bright pink lip. It is a Lustre and that being said it is extremely soft and creamy on the lips. Although one negative which isn't really a negative is, it really magnifies dry areas on the lip so exfoliating is a must! I am going to include a swatch as well as a picture on the lips. All in all i loveeeeee this lipstick.. :)
