    1. Hi Carly-I would love to swap banners!

    2. Hello Carly!

      I NEVER read blogs, never wrote one, and don't care for them, but yours is truly awesome. I have enjoyed every product review thoroughly and wanted to thank you for testing out all the foundations you do (i am obsessed with foundation). But you are my soul mate, as you are obsessed with NUDE lipstick. Especially Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brule. It's like i found my soul mate. A similar lipstick is by BUXOM in "Nudist" if you want to try it, but nothing seems to compare to Creme Brule. Why that makes me sad, Is I find it doesn't LAST...as most lip butters and nude colors tend not to last. Do you know any Nude Lipsticks like Creme Brule that can be long-lasting? keep writing this fantastic blog. Love it.

      1. Hi Janet! Wow thank you for the compliments. I'm so flattered! My favorite nude lipsticks besides revlon creme brûlée are: MAC Viva La Glam Gaga 2, Maybelline Color Whispers Bare To Be Bold, NYX Circe & Summer Love, and Revlon Sparkling Cider. I find while these are still nude lipsticks, they are easier to pull off. Hope that helps :)

    3. i do love your blog and just stumbled across it, from the Dave's Tanner giveaway. i may have to try the Xen you love so much, so thank you for sharing all your tips! it sure beats going through bottle after bottle of wasted products! btw: did you announce the winner? i'm looking pretty pastey white these days! haha. thank you carly
