Hello lovelies!
I recently posted a new video on my YouTube channel showing an unboxing from BeautyJoint. (Link here!)
I also mentioned that I would do some lip swatches on the lip products that I purchased. If you would like a review or swatch on any of the other products, then let me know! :)

(Left to Right!)
Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick - Nouveau Pink
Wet N Wild Mega Matte Lip - Pinkerbell
e.l.f Essential Lipstick - Flirtatious
Revlon Lustrous Lipstick - Wink for Pink
NYX Round Lipstick - Stella
LA Girl Creme Color - Sinful
NYX Soft Matte Cream - Addis Abba
Revlon Lustrous Lip Gloss - Shine that Pink
e.l.f Liquid Lipstick - Raspberry

And here are the swatches! (in the same order as above!)

Finally, here are all the lip colors on my lips! The good thing about these swatches is that they are all true to color! I hope you enjoy, and let's begin! 

 Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick - Nouveau Pink
-This has to be my favorite lip product out of all the ones I purchased! The formulation is super creamy too, and feels lovely to apply. I especially love this color, and will definitely be purchasing this lipstick in other colors! This retails for $1.99 off BeautyJoint. 

Wet N Wild Mega Matte Lip - Pinkerbell
- I have to say I wasn't too impressed with this Wet N Wild product. It didn't apply nicely and was also a little hard to apply (I'm presuming because it's matte?) I do like the color in the tube, however I won't be repurchasing this one! This retails for $2.75 off BeautyJoint.
 e.l.f Essential Lipstick - Flirtatious
- This one is also my favorite! It applied nicely and the formation and consistency is also great! Okay, wait I love this lipstick & it smells nice too! The color is a perfect, subtle pink as well! Will definitely be purchasing this lipstick in other colors :) This retails for $1.99 off BeautyJoint. 

Revlon Lustrous Lipstick - Wink for Pink
- I was so disappointed in this lipstick - like a lot! It's a pearl so it has large chunky glitters in it. The color isn't that great either. I mostly just hate the consistency and the chunky glitters! Eeekk! WON'T be re-purchasing this one! This retails for $5.99 off BeautyJoint.
 NYX Round Lipstick - Stella
- I'm not sure if this applied so badly because off the Revlon lipstick or what, but this is not my fave....at all! The color looks so pretty in the tube, however when applied looks terrible on me. The formulation is terrible! I will re-purchase other colors of the Round Lipstick however! This retails for $2.99 off BeautyJoint. 

 LA Girl Creme Color - Sinful
- This was my 3rd favorite of the lipsticks so far! I love the deep red color and find this one quite easy to wear. It's also a color that can be easily build-able. The formulation is nicely applied too! Will be repurchasing this baby in other colors! This retails for $2.25 off BeautyJoint. 
 NYX Soft Matte Cream - Addis Abba
- I mentioned in my video that I didn't like the creamy formula, however after applying it today..I love it! It's quite easy to wear and I love love love the color! Hot pink - yes please :) This was after 2 coats, so definitely build-able! Will DEFINITELY be purchasing more! This retails for $5.99 off BeautyJoint.
 Revlon Lustrous Lip Gloss - Shine that Pink
- I have a love/hate relationship with this one. The color is very easy to wear as an everyday lip color, however the formula is very sticky once applied and even once removed (not to mention hard to remove)! It's also more of a nude-y pink than a pink color. I won't be purchasing other colors off this one. This retails for $4.99 off BeautyJoint. 
 e.l.f Liquid Lipstick - Raspberry
- I was really surprised by this liquid lipstick...and turns out I love it! It applies nicely and I love the color. It also has a minty smell, so it's nice to apply after brushing your teeth or eating *hehe*. I will definitely be purchasing this bad-boy in other colors :) This retails for $1.99 off BeautyJoint!

And there you have my swatches from the lip products I purchased off BeautyJoint! I hope you all have enjoyed reading this review/swatches blog post and if you want a review on the other items I got, then let me know below!

Sammy Dress OOTD & Review

Hi girlies!

I was contacted by Sammy Dress to do a review on some of their items. They allowed me to pick 2 two things off their website!

As you can see from the video, I decided to choose this aztec inspired scarf and the gorgeous orange handbag!

The aztec scarf is too die for! I have worn it every day since it arrived. Also what's amazing, is I was actually on Daily Mail, reading an article about the races and I actually saw a girl wearing the scarf! It's pretty cool, when something you own is shown on a website or seen on a celebrity!

With the handbag, I choose this one in particular because it reminded of the Hermes style Birkin bags. Seeing as how I don't think I would be affording one any time soon, I think this is a great cost friendly option to the bag.

Onto the website itself, Sammy Dress is a wholesale retailer that sells in bulk to stores. However a typical consumer, like you or me, can order off there and have the latest fashion trends for a fraction of the price. The bag retails for $12.04 on the website and the scarf retails for $3.64 (at the time of purchase).

The link to the scarf: http://www.sammydress.com/product102176.html
The link to the handbag: http://www.sammydress.com/product172241.html

I personally love the website and all the goodies on the website too! I hope you all have enjoyed this review :)

Lace Mullet Shirt - Factorie

 I purchased the white, latte, and melon colour. Both the white and latte colour are in a size L and the melon is a size S.
 As you can see, there is a lace detail at the top, this helps make the shirt more feminine and unique.
The shirts are a little pricey, however they are well worth the money as they can be both dressy or casual shirts.

Baking Time! - Turquoise Cupcakes

For Halloween 2011, I decided to make spooky cupcakes. I added food coloring to the mix to make it swampy looking. Instead it came out a turquoise color! None the less, it was pretty :) 
Also for the icing I just used the icing the pack came with, and added red to the coloring, again symbolizing blood. However off course it turned out pink!
I don't think turquoise and pink cupcakes symbolize Halloween, but they were super yummy so it definitely made up for it!
