Dupe Alert!!!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This weekend I was putting my makeup into my new storage containers as I'm sure you all saw on my youtube video, but I started going through my lipsticks and seeing what I had and what colors and trying different combos with them when I came across these two! I LOVE Barry M lipsticks, but us American girls have to order online and shipping is about $12 so that adds up to quite a lot. I applied the lovely Barry M 129 to my lips and smiled as it is one of my faves then I wiped it off to apply another and I grabbed this NYX Baby Pink and I had never realized just how close they were until that moment! As I had tried them on back to back, they looked so similar! I couldn't believe it! Now, Barry M is a VERY creamy lipstick which is why its all over the tube, somehow it broke b/c its so darn creamy! But it feels sooo nice on your lips and leaves them looking like you have a gloss on. I love it when I'm in a hurry b/c its so effortless to apply on your lips and go and it looks like you have applied a lipstick and gloss and have gorgeous lips! NYX Baby Pink is a little more pink and not quite as purple so this is perfect for someone who is just starting out with a more "out there" color. Its a pink with a lilac undertone and has some shimmer to it where 129 is just a cream finish. All in all, I love them both and think they are both amazing colors! So, if you don't want to spend the money and order Barry M or are looking for something a big more pink definitely go for the NYX! xoxo

Look at those Lashes!!!

Last night I picked up a Rimmel Glam Eyes mascara and wasn't expecting anything from it really considering it was cheap and the packaging was so cute that I was sure that all of the money had went into packaging and not product but boy was I wrong!!! I put on one coat and was like, wow that isn't bad then another and I couldn't believe the volume it was giving me so just to see if it would clump I added another and low and behold I had HUGE not clumpy lashes! I have had this on all day and still no flaking and still as curly as they were this morning so for $5.50 a tube I am SOLD not to mention the packaging is as cute as a button!!!
