Blushing over Affordable Cream Blush Sticks

So you might know, if you follow me on twitter, that I was searching high and low
for these three beauties.
Blushable CREME STICK by N.Y.C. Color
Someone told me to check Rite Aid. I never go there because its in a shopping center that doesn’t really have stores that I visit. Good thing I have twitter because like a silly goose I went to 5 different CVS’s in about 2 days with no luck.
I was hearing mixed reviews on these sticks but being a loca for makeup, I wanted them anyways.
When I got home I was super excited to try them out. To my surprise, they were not greasy like I was informed by a lot of chicas who have them. They are not too hard too soft…
just right for what they are, sticks.

They run about $5 each so I felt like there was enough product in each tube for the price.
From left to right – South Street Seashell, Berry New Yorker, and Plaza Pink

Pink Plaza is a perfect highlight color, South Street Seashell is an amazing color, and I will use Berry New Yorker for contouring.

Here are the other colors that are available if you are interested:
The reason these are different from my MAC and NYX :
1. These guys are in a stick, and I can throw them in my bag without freaking out.
2. They were $5 and sold a the drugstore down the street, where they sell other affordable makeup and Nutter Butters.
3. They are not sticky and lay on the skin thick and heavy. You can build
up the color but when I reach for a blush stick I wanna slap it on really quick.
4. No brush = cute faster
5. see #4 for the best reason

Like in all my posts, tell me what you think. Hate them? Love them? Have them? What colors are your favorite.
Alright girl friends, Take cake and stay Fabulous!

I was "Just Bitten" by Edward…I mean Revlon

Today I went to my sisters house to watch “New Moon” I don’t know why we are watching the Twilight saga in reverse but I guess we are getting it done.
I went to CVS for some popcorn and I ran into this blood sucker…I mean lip stain.
Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm in the color “Frenzy”

The felt tip reminds me of a marker when I was in school.
I really like this kind of applicator because its easy to stay “in the lines”.
When I researched the product before I started this post, Revlon came out with a roller ball stain which sounded like it would get everywhere and make you look like you drank a pitcher of kool-aide.
The part of this product I did and didn’t like was the lip balm. I loved the smooth texture, the fact that there was no scent, and the mega shine without and stickiness…BUT what you see is what you get.
I would have made the balm retractable so that it lasts longer.

If you are intimidated by the packaging thinking your lips are going to be TOO dark, take a look at this swatch. This is one swipe. Above the stain is the balm…its so moisturizing my alligator skin sucked it up lol.

Now do not be alarmed by my mouth all up in your face.
This picture was taken in natural light and photoshop free so you can get an idea of how intense it could be. So overall I loved this lipstain and would recommend this product to first time users. It is a little pricey, $10 in drugstores, but worth every penny. Other colors that I want to try are “Twilight” and “Forbidden”. I want “Forbidden” just because its…uh…forbidden.
If you have one for these and love the color, let me know which one I should pick up.
Until next time, take care and stay FABULOUS!
