Confession #20: My lips are ready for the Big Apple

Hey Everyone!

Many of you probably know what Influenster is, but if you don’t you should definitely check it out!!! I joined the site and almost immediately qualified for my first VoxBox. They sent a number of pretty cool items (stay posted for a full post on my Varsity VoxBox), but in this post I’m going to focus in this AMAZING lip gloss I got!


I received a full size  sample of NYC Big Bold Gloss, in a light pink, for some reason I can’t find the exact name of this color.

This product says its a plumping gloss, and often times when that claim is made it isn’t met. This product is different as soon as i apply it I can feel a small tingle letting me know that the plumping is starting to take action.

Ever since I started wearing lipgloss, I have hated that feeling you get when just to much product is on your lips, it feels so thick and gross and worst of all STICKY! So of course I was hesitant, thinking for sure i was about to smear lip glue… I mean gloss.. on my lips. This was not the case with this product! It goes on a bit thick but not so much that it is annoying, also this product is not in the least bit sticky I don’t feel like my lips are going to get stuck together when I talk.

My only qualm about this product is that the applicator is quite large, and if you make the mistake of double dipping you are going to have way to much product on your lips.


I want to hear from you!

Have you ever tried NYC’s Big Bold Gloss?

‘What other lip plumpers have you tried?

What’s your favorite lip gloss?

Confession #16: I got the Beauty Blogger Tag! Does this make me official?

Hi Dolls!

So I received the Beauty Blogger Tag from Beauty4Free2U, Check her out, her blog is amazing and she seems like a darling!

This tag was originally created by The Beau Bow.

Here are the official rules for the Beauty Blogger Tag:

  1. State the Tag was created by The Beau Bow
  2. Tag some more beauty blogger
  3. Title it with Beauty Blogger Tag

Name a beauty routine you rarely do?

-I rarely curl my eyelashes. Mine have a pretty natural curl to them, so the few times I have tried to curl them, it just looks awkward, and to be honest I am not even sure of the correct way to go about using an eyelash curler.
Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?

-Washing my makeup brushes has become a once a week ritual for me. I wash my brushes every Wednesday afternoon while I give myself a facial.
How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?

-I can not stand chipped nails, since I wear overlay more often than not, I often have to put up with chipped nails for a couple of days before I can get them done, but it will be literally all I can focus on until they are back to looking proper.
How long do you put off buying.replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (i.e.-top coat, foundation,etc.)?

-I don’t put off buying or replacing product. I have this amazing “gift” where even if I walk into a store and completely forget my entire grocery list, I somehow remember what I am running out of or what I wanted to try.
What is your worst beauty habit?

-I honestly have so many horrible beauty habits! I’ll go with my top two, I sometimes fall asleep with my makeup on, which is seriously so bad for your face! I also forget to wash my face a lot, I use cleansing wipes but I don’t give a good scrub as often as I should.
Name something non-beauty related that you put off all the time.

– One Word. HOMEWORK.
When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?

-I definitely give myself enough time to get ready. I hate showing up to places late but I can’t show up if I’m not put together. So the amount of time I take depends on what I’m wearing and how I’m doing my hair and makeup.
Can you commit to spending bans?

– That is a huge no! I’m an impluse buyer when it comes to EVERYTHING! The only way I can commit is to not go into stores, and even then I have a hard time because of online shopping, but I have gotten a lot better than I used to be, I do believe I have college to thank for that.
How organized are your makeup and nail polish collections?

-My makeup collection is beautifully organized, it makes my heart sing because it is so lovely! My nail polish on the other hand is in a huge makeup case, and just kind of tossed in there.

What is the longest time you’ve gone without writing a blog post?

– This is so bad, but 2 months! The stresses of college life definitely got the best of me, but I am BACK!

I hope you all enjoyed reading my answers to the tag!

And now for the fun part!!

I’m tagging these lovely ladies:
