New Burt's Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm, $3.29 at Walgreens
At first glance, Burt's Bees Flavor Crystal's lip balm should have been a winner. I mean what's not to like about an affordable lip balm offering the promise of hydration and a kick of flavor? As soon as I saw this lip balm in my local Walgreens, I thought to myself "oh this should be good", and quickly grabbed one in the Tropical Pineapple flavor. Sadly, I was completely wrong.
According to the Burt's Bees Website:
Burt’s Bees Flavor Crystals lip balm has all the naturally moisturizing power of lip balm plus a burst of fruity goodness. Beeswax and Vitamin E condition skin for soft, smooth lips while crystals made of 100% real fruit juice pack a sweet punch.
This lip balm was a complete miss for me for several reasons. If...
Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix in Goal Digger $5, inspired by the shade Bumble
I picked up five of the new Colourpop Matte Lippie Stix shades that were released earlier this month. The Matte X formula is my favorite affordable matte lipstick formula, so I new I wanted to add to my collection. The eight new shades were inspired by some of Colourpop's most popular matte liquid lipstick shades. Check out my video review down below.

ColourPop Matte X Lippie in the shade Secret Stash, inspired by the shade Lovebug
Colourpop has created new Matte X lippies inspired from some of their popular matte liquid lipstick shades. I think this was genius idea cause I loved the shades of their matte liquid lipstick, but found the formula to be a little to drying on the lips.
The Matte X Lippie Stix are hands down my favorite affordable matte lipstick formula. They are as easy on your wallet (only 5 bucks!) as they are on your lips (non drying and long wearing). There are 8 new shades to love and while supplies last if you grab one of the new matte x lippie stix shades and the coordinating lip liner, you'll receive a free mini matte liquid lipstick in the same shade for FREE!!
I grabbed 5 of the new 8 shades and will be featuring them in an up...

The only thing (besides a good sale) that makes a product you love even better is when they offer more shades options for you to get your hands on.
Case in point: Nyx Intense Butter Gloss. They are affordable at only $6 a pop and 12 new shades just released for Spring 2016!

I'm a huge fan of the Intense Butter Gloss for several reasons. The formula is smooth and not sticky or tacky. These aren't transfer resistant, but they will hang on your lips awhile due to them being extremely pigmented.
With the addition of 12 new shades, there's sure to...
