Beauty: Addiction NV Cosmetics

It is that time of the year that we bloggers get ton of emails about gift ideas. Some I look at others I don’t. Im glad I did with this one.
I just got the cutest thing in the mail. It is a candy cane flavored lip balm from Addiction NV.
Addiction NV
It is called Naughty, But Nice Candy Cane Lip Balm. The packaging is cute. You have to push in the bottom which clicks, like a pen, and pull the lip balm out. I thought that was different. It has vitamin E, shea butter, spearmint, apricot oil, sweet almond oil, and antioxidants. It is not tested on animals.
I am wearing it now and I like it. You can feel the spearmint in it. It has a cooling effect, feels nice. It has the mint smell. Kinda taste like a candy cane. It has a slight red tint, it is swirled with red and white to match any skintone. And I was happy with that since I have a darker skintone, I cant/wont wear red lips. This was just a hint of red.

I think this will make a cute stocking stuffer. It is a great buy. I went to website and I liked it. You can purchase this lip balm for $18 on www.addictionnv.com.
You can also follow them on twitter and facebook.

Beauty: Liplicious From Bath and Body Works

I was sent, by the representative, three lip glosses from Bath & Body. I love Bath & Body. These three are from the Bath and Body Signature Liplicious Lip Gloss. Check out the press release.
The lip glosses are $8 each. Standard tube.
cranberry kiss swatch
This is Cranberry Kiss. It is from the All I Want Liplicious Collection. It is a sheer shimmery pink. Has a high gloss. I don’t think is smells like cranberries, not sure what it smells like, but not cranberries.
Marshmellow Creme Swatch
This is Marshmallow Crème. It is from the Seasonal Core Liplicious Collection. I hate marshmallows. Im not sure if I like the scent. It doesn’t smell like marshmallows.
Cocoa Creme Swatch
Lastly, is Cocoa Crème. Again from the Seasonal Core Liplicous Collection. This is a brown shimmery gloss. It doesn’t have a strong scent, so I cant really say what I think this one smells like.
Overall, I like the glosses. They go on really thick, so I squeeze a little to the top and them apply it. They all go on clear despite the color in the tubes. I am still wearing Cocoa Crème, and it seems to be a long lasting. Hasn’t come off even though I have been drinking a pop. And it is still shiny.
You can purchase these lip glosses and other by going into your local Bath and Body or by visiting the website www.bathandbodyworks.com. They are currently on sell, if you buy two you get one free.

Hair: Dr. Miracle’s Edge Holding Gel

Edge Gel
Ok so remember when I did the review on the newly re-launched Dr. Miracles products? I didn’t review them all, there were a couple of products I had left to review. The Edge Holding Gel was one of them. It is one of their new styling products.
