Hi everyone! The title of this post might confuse some of you, since you know I'm on a spending ban until April 1st. You might be thinking, "It's about time she fell off the spending ban wagon!" On the contrary folks! My lovely fiance says he's very proud of me for not buying anything beauty related that I didn't need and said he wanted to treat me to something. I couldn't believe those words actually came out of his mouth! David, treating me, to makeup?! But he was serious and took me to Ulta! I love him :)
As you can tell, I was very nice to his wallet and only bought two items. Maybelline had the buy 1, get 1 50% off deal and I've been dying to try the Color Whispers and the new Color Tattoos from the Metal collection. I also had a coupon for $3.50 off of a $10 purchase, so I was definitely nice to him!
Anyways, I had been dying to try the Barely Branded Color Tattoo since it seemed very similar to that Barely Beige color they had in the limited edition line from the Fall. I couldn't find it anywhere I went to and when I heard Maybelline was putting out a new line of colors and I saw this color, I had to have it! It's incredibly long wearing and the swatch of it doesn't even want to come off my hand! The only gripe I have is it's definitely alot more sheer than the other Color Tattoos. I only have Bad to the Bronze and that one's so incredibly pigmented, so I kinda expected the same from this. I still really like this though and can't wait to use it more. I've already used it twice and so far, it's not bad.
Then I heard about the much talked about Color Whispers. I kept hearing that they were better than the Revlon Lip Butters, which I haven't tried to be honest, and that they were just amazing. I love balmy type lip products, so when I went to Ulta, I wanted to try one. I picked mine up in the color Pink Possibilities, and I'm in love with it! You can keep the color very sheer or you can build it up to make it pop more and it's incredibly moisturizing. Also, is it just me, or is the smell simply amazing?! Seriously, it smells just like Fruity Pebbles! I put this on my lips and then smell them just because it smells that amazing.
Once my spending ban is over, I'm definitely going to have to try out more of the Color Whispers. I'm still not sure if I want to try out other colors from the Color Tattoos in the Metal collection though. Anyways, after the buy 1, get one half off and my coupon, everything came to only $7.93 including tax. That's pretty impressive for me considering I haven't been able to buy myself anything since January 1st. I only have a little over a month left so woohoo!
I hope everyone liked this post and if you would like to see full reviews of either product, please let me know! Has anyone else tried either of these products?
