LUSH and Bath & Body Works Haul

Bath & Body Works is having their semi-annual sale! They had tons of items for only $3. Their candles were 50% off, along with some other good deals. If you love BBW, definitely check it out.
LUSH was having buy 1 get 1 free on all of their wrapped gifts and holiday items. Amazing deal, especially since they very rarely have sales at all. I wish I could have bought the whole store! As of right now, the sale is still going on online, but a lot of items are out of stock.

Review & Swatches: Revlon Colorstay Lip Butters


WHERE TO BUY: Drugstores
PRICE: Around $7 at Target, prices vary depending on location

- Affordable
- Pigmented
- Moisturizing
- No noticeable scent
- Comes in many shades
- Pretty packaging

- Can be a little bit hard to open

MY THOUGHTS: I am obsessed with these. I'm kind of picky when it comes to lipsticks because I prefer ones that are affordable, moisturizing, unscented, and come in very wearable shades. Finding every single of these qualities in a drugstore lipstick can be a bit difficult. Some brands tend to carry a lot of frosty colors while others have a very waxy smell to them. When I heard all of the raves about these, I thought I would like them and I was not disappointed.

Considering how moisturizing they are, the color pay-off is actually really good. I don't detect a scent when I use it or have it on. Lasting power is similar to your average gloss which doesn't bother me since it is a "lip butter" after all, not a stain. $7 is not the cheapest drugstore price, but for the price of one MAC lipstick I can get 2 from Revlon. There are so many gorgeous shades to choose from so I'll definitely be getting more. It's kind of hard to locate them at the moment since they're only found on new product displays, but I hear that they will be everywhere by the new year. I hope so!

brown in the tube but looks like a brownish-red color on the lips. It's very
sheer in this photo but it actually looks more opaque in person, I really like it.)

Haul: Revlon Lip Butters

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Creme Brulee, Pink Truffle, & Candy Apple

I'm so excited about these! If you've been keeping up with beauty bloggers and youtube gurus, I'm sure you've heard about them. The color payoff is pretty good and they're so moisturizing. Love! I already want more of them. For now, they're only located in certain stores on new product displays. I found them at Target but more than half of the shades were already gone!

Korean Market Haul

There are always things that I want to blog about but I can't seem to find the time. School's been keeping me busy since I seem to have quizzes and exams every single week. In addition to that, my family recently relocated and moving is super tiring! Packing and transferring everything you own is pretty tedious, but things are settling down. After shopping for things to keep my room organized, I suddenly realized that I was running out of a lot of beauty products. Thus, a trip to the korean market! Hopefully I can post some more detailed reviews soon.

- Dariya Hair Magic Sheets [$3.99]: Velcro "clips" that hold your hair in place without leaving any weird dents. I've been looking for these everywhere! A lot of beauty gurus seem to use them.

- Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Conditioner [$18]: Been hearing good things about this. The big bottles are expensive but refill packs are $12. Sounds good to me. You save money and plastic :)

- Kose Softymo White Cleansing Oil [$11.49]: My 2nd bottle. Awesome at removing face makeup. Most cleansing oils are at least $20 but you can find a lot of affordable alternatives from asian brands.

- Skin79 Mini BB Cream Set [$15]: I have been hearing so many awesome things about BB creams being the holy grail, so I hope it lives up to the hype!
