Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue // Review

It's no secret that I love Maybelline Baby Lips. So when I heard about those I was super excited! I actually got them both for Christmas, my peeps knows me so well! haha ;)

So basically Baby Lips Dr Rescue are medicated lipbalm with a hint of color that  helps with dry and sore lips... so let's see if it's true!


The two I have are:
* Coral Crave (very sheer pink coral)
* Pink Me Up (sheer medium-toned pink)

Pigmentation: These aren't pigmented. They are very sheer. They are promoted as having natural tints to provide healthier looking lips. Pink me up has a bit of tint but Coral Crave is basically invisble. I had a really hard time having swatches.

Scent: Dr Rescue's are from from the original Baby Lips. They aren't fruit, more minty, think Vicks. If you aren't a fan of a strong menthol smell I wouldn't suggest this to you.
Texture and staying power:

Texture & Staying Power: The texture of these are really thin as opposed to the original ones. They aren't as creamy and they feel a bit more greasy on the lips. The staying power isn't the best, it doesn't last long at all.

Overall, I do not feel like this product has made any difference for me. Might be that I don't suffer from dry lips. The color pay-off isn't really the best as well. It's an ok product. The disappointment might come from the fact that I'm a fan of the original Baby Lips formula. I feel like the original formula works better for me in term of dry and sore lips.

Revlon Parfumerie Nailpolish | Wintermint

Hi! LONG time no talk! Wow! I'm super sorry but I have been way too busy to blog or to even think about it! I've missed it so much. In 2014, even if I don't have time to blog I will MAKE the time to blog. :)

So I'm coming back with a review of my favorite nailpolish at the moment which is from the new Revlon Parfumerie collection in Wintermint. Revlon's Parfumerie are scented nailpolishes (and might I add, super cute bottles).

Wintermint immediately caught my eyes as it seems hugely familiar to deborah lipmann's Mermaid Dream. As the bottle is super cute, I was kinda worried about the application since the top is small. But to my surprise, it was really easy to work with. The color is very unique; it's like a seafoam/minty with blue glitters and small gold glitters with a matte finish.

The polish is super easy to work with. After 3 coats, the color was opaque.

For the scented part: it will only smell after your nails are completly dry. This one smells like mint!! Yummy! It doesn't last more than two days though. (sadly)

Overall, it's a great nail polish that smells nice, classy packaging and is very similar to Mermaid Dream by deborah lipmann.
