L'Oreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara

I have been pretty faithful to my Lash Blast Mascara for years now but I got a little cray cray and decided to branch out a bit. I'm not going to pretend that it was something else other than the shiny gold packaging that caught my eye, 'cause it totally was. I like me some gold.
So I brought it home and cracked it open with the highest of hopes in mind. Let me tell you this, I wasn't wowed. It did make my lashes appear thicker. But not in a voluminous way, more in a way that looked as though I had put some brownie batter on my eye lashes. Not a fan.

It's kinda hard to tell here but when I took the brush out of the container it was super clumpy and just-bleh. So sadly, my foray into new mascara fell flat but I am not dissuaded friends-I will keep looking for the best mascara for us all!

Revlon Lip Butters

So I first heard about these fancy lip sticks called Lip Butters from Morgan, Mrs. Priss herself. She seemed almost entranced by these little beauts. So I said "heh, maybe I'll check them out". AND THEN the whole internet was aflame with Lip Butter madness. Like, everyone wanted some and those that didn't want some already had 46!

So I became resolute to make some Lip Butters mine and I went to my local Walgreens and guess what?! They were buy one get one for 50% off. They were nearly sold out so I grabbed what they had left and was so excited to try them on.

Well I tried them on and to my surprise they were really smooth feeling, almost sheer feeling. But get this the color wasn't sheer, it was vibrant! I was in love! What's more? It stayed on as I ate and drank and talked. It was awesome. So I did what anyone would do in my situation, I went and bought two more.

As of today I have 6 colors, as follows:
Pink Truffle
Raspberry Pie
Red Velvet
Candy Apple
Berry Smoothie
Peach Parfait

and the sick part is...I want more!
Do you have any Revlon Lip Butters?
