    The Maybelline's HighShine Lipstick is squared shape, very similar to the Maybelline's Sensational LipColor  packaging, except this has a shiny, reflective,  and silver cap. The cap securely clicks tight , great to put in your purse without worrying about making any mess. 

    Product Review:
    I really love these. They are super glossy and shimmery, without looking gaudy or  frosty.  These lipstick are super hydrating and they feel so light on my lips.  You don't need to apply gloss over your lipstick, a couple of swipes and you are done. This is similar to a lip gloss in a lipstick form. It is so easy to apply, since it is semi-sheer, yet very buildable in color.

    These lipstick has a citric berry smell to them. Personally, I like the smell, but if you are sensitive  to fragrant lipsticks, then these might not be for you.

    The Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick reminds me of 1 of my most favorite Holy Grail (HG) lipsticks, the Shiseido Makeup Shimmering Lipstick, minus the hefty price.


    Each Swatch is swiped 4x

    How I apply it:
    Just apply it on your lips. This goes on really smooth, not gritty at all. And my lips looks so glossy and watery.

    Would I repurchase? Yes, most definitely, I love how smooth, light this feels, with a super pretty glossy look.

    This facial foaming scrub cleanser is conveniently packaged in a plastic tube with a flip top, that makes dispensing the product easily. 

    Product Review:
    The smell is so refreshing and yummy! It smells very much like pink grapefruit, which I personally love. This foaming scrub makes my face feel squeaky clean after cleansing. Personally, I don't feel that it is harsh on my skin, the micro beads feels great on my skin. I do feel that it works at keeping my acne at bay.

    How I apply it: 
    I use a quarter size amount for my face and neck area once a day at night. I gently massage it onto my face and neck area. It is so relaxing, therapeutic, and great for a facial routine. I usually use this on days when I wear makeup. I use this after I remove my makeup with my jojoba oil.
