Favorite Drugstore Lip Products: Revlon

Hello beauties!

Yesterday the internet told me it was apparently National Lipstick Day, (this is everyday for me). Perfect timing for another of my favorite drugstore lip products!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or you are a graduate student, you’ve heard about Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. (Henceforth known as Balm Stains, because I’m too lazy to type that ridiculous name over and over again).

The hype is accurate, these are a great lip product for someone on a beer budget. Really, anyone can enjoy these guys, they’re quite lovable.

PS: I buy mine at Target where I can usually get them for $6.99. At CVS or Walgreens they’re usually $8.99, which I give the side eye.

Ipsy July Bag: Sensationally Sun Kissed

Hello Beauties! I’ve mentioned several times that I love small sizes of makeup and beauty supplies, because it’s a great way to try new products and expensive brands without the price. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for a few months now, and they’re right up my alley. At $10 a bag with 4-5 samples, this monthly beauty subscription is definitely fits in my beer budget. (And I even have money left over for actual beer, it’s a win-win situation.)

If all my mail arrived in this bag, I wouldn't be sad.
