From the maybelline website:

- Vitamin Complex delivering powerful anti-oxidants.
- SPF 20 for protection against harmful UV rays.

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!

I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don't like the tingling feeling then the fruit flavours are the way to go. 

It's winter here in Australia, that time of year when my lips get EXTREMELY dry and cracked. It's been approximately 4 weeks since I've been using the menthol baby lips (so I can get rid of it because I hate the smell) and it's made some improvement to my lips. My lips get dry from time to time but they haven't cracked since using the baby lips. When I first started using the baby lips I'd have to reapply every few hours but now I only have to reapply 2-3 times a day. 


One main flaw is the lip balm taste and we all know what I'm talking about. So if you don't like that lip balm taste DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. If your lips are flaky, the lip balm doesn't really help. 


Overall it's a really good lip balm. The baby lips make my lips feel soft and less dry without constant reapplication and the formula isn't waxy just nice and smooth. 

Cons:
- Taste 
- Artificial smell
- They're not tinted like the baby lips in USA  

Pros:
- PACKAGING!!!!
- SPF 20 
- Long lasting (for a lip balm)
- Moisturising
- Smooth application
- Glossy
- Affordable

Rating: 3.5/5

  1. That's pretty much how the packaging looks like too here in Asia. I wonder why we don't have the ones with transparent caps though, and I've never seen any video reviews of Baby Lips' Asian/Australian version
    Anyways my sister uses this brand & she loves it a lot. She has Smoothing Cherry and Antioxidant Berry

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from www.beautyheaven.com.au)



Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 



Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

Cons:
- Doesn't do what it claims

Pros:
- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 
- PURPLE

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00

What's your favourite eyeshadow brush?

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
