Lancome Rouge in Love Lipsticks (106M, 174B, 377N) swatch review

When the Lancome Rouge in Love* lipsticks came out, I stood in Shoppers long enough to get multiple "can I help you?" inquiries from SAs while I swatched all the colors. I then returned a few more times and swatched them again and again in an attempt to find the one.

Wet n Wild Steal the Look and Giveaway!

wet n wild cosmetics steal the look app and giveaway CBB

Well October's CBB Brand of the Month is Wet N Wild! And I'm actually pretty excited about it. For a drugstore brand, Wet n Wild packs a punch at their price point and I have been a devoted fan of their single eyeshadow in Nutty for a very long time. Julie and I went to their new "Steal the Look" App launch a month or so again.

Memebox Special Box #24 Brightening Skincare* Unboxing and Subscription Box Discussion

*Press Sample

Memeboxes (pronounced "me me", and not "meem") has been kicking around for a while. I was very excited that a subscription box dedicated itself to Korean products but I never actually bought one. In general, I don't think subscription boxes are where I want to spend my money but the pay-per-use feature of Memebox gives it more flexibility. I was sent Special Box #24 Brightening Skincare to review.

Chanel Intonation Dupe?

By the time I realized how awesome Chanel's Blush in Intonation was after borrowing it from Vanessa, it had already sold out. Nothing quite like the words "sold out" to make me try even harder to find the product or something similar. Vanity Rouge suggested that the Maybelline Master Glaze in Coral Sheen made for a great dupe and I had to compare for myself.

The Fall of the MLBB


Revlon Just-BItten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. I've mentioned over and over again in comments, in blog posts, in conversation, how wearable this color is, how "everyday", how "MLBB". But...I'm wondering, is it too *whispers* bland ? and like doing your laundry and washing your dishes, too...everydayHas it becomes the housewife of lipcolors?

After consolidating everything, I saw the benefits of having all you need, on hand, in one place. I've never bought a full face palette before so the Aerin Weekday Palette* further affirmed how awesome it is to simplify.
