You have seen lots of collaborations before but this one is special. We are doing it cross-media style between youtube and blogger :)
My friend Samantha Jane on YT and I are both drugstore makeup fanatics from the East coast. We constantly discuss new product spotting or sales around here, so it is about time we do that together, at the same time.
My first pick for the most exciting new products this Spring is Annabelle Lipsies (12 shades $4.95 each). Moisturizing balms with fun packaging, wide colour range (some sheer, some pigmented) and fruity scents. They have been in rotation between me and Squirt.
Check back my part I and part II reviews for more details on their Spring products.
The brand is on sale often enough that I think this product deserves a spot in this post.
The cream gives my skin that smooth and hydrated feeling waking up in the morning and put me in a good mood to start the day. I have a few backups in the stash already.
Now on to nails. Essie Cashmere Matte collection ($9.99 a pop) takes the cake, for its beautiful and interesting/ unique finish. My most favorites in the range: Coat Couture (left) and Comfy in Cashmere (right).
So far I only tried Not a Box of Chocolate set (swatched below, $30), and Lumiere Lippie Stix ($5) and am happy with them. I will have to brave the shipping cost again for their Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks, no doubt!
