Red lips are classic! They're also a big trend for the fall season. I experimented with this red lip colour for the first time and I'm surprised how it looked on me. I used my Jordana EasyShine Lip Color in Strawberry, the colour pay off is surprisingly good. What do you think?

Do you like red lips?

I'm just loving the sampling programs that are around these days. It's a great way to try full size and sample size products for a discounted price. I recently received the New Beauty Test Tube, and I'm loving it! The test tube a seasonal subscription to try the new and the best beauty products around for only $29.95! The products in my test tube are valued way more than $29.95. The New Beauty test tube is one of the best beauty sampling programs and I will most definitely be getting another one next season.

If you have read my reviews in the past you would know that I like companies with excellent customer service. New Beauty has great customer service, answering any questions that you may have. What's another great thing is that I received my package in one day! That's amazing but that's because New Beauty is based in Florida and their address is close to my address. My package came package nicely and safe. I love the pink box that the test tube came in, with writing and messages when I opened the box.

My test tube came with a HUGE New Beauty magazine which I'm loving. The New Beauty magazine has everything for beauty lovers. The magazine it self is worth $9.95. The test tube I received came with 8 products, everytime I pulled out a product I gasped. I found products that I never heard of before and products that I wanted to try that I heard of.  Some of the products were fulled size and others were deluxe samples. I also received some great coupons! That's always a plus. When you receive your test tube it gives you a booklet listing all the products that you received in your test tube, listing the prices and what the products are used for.

I have this amazing website to introduce to you and it is Mizoutlet.com! Mizoutlet has a wide selection to choose from such as cosmetics, jewelry and hair accessories. I must say that it is a nice store. It's very inexpensive, with prices starting from $1.00. I picked out a few items to share with you and I love them all!

I picked out a few rings and cosmetics that I always wanted to try out. Mizoutlet.com has a very good customer service with a prompt response. My package arrived in less than a week (I'm in the Bahamas) and it was packaged securely with foam popcorn. My rings came individually wrapped, the lipsticks and nail polishes also came with protecting paper. I even got a complimentary pair of earrings.

It's fall and I'm not really following the lip colour trends, I'm still wearing bright colours rather than dark rich plum colours. I think the ones I wear work just as good. I decided to make up names for the lip colours I blended together (don't laugh). I used my Becca Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Tint in Watermelon and Evil Shades Ardour for Lorange; I found that using the Becca lip tint under normal lipsticks gives any lip colour a good matte effect. For Pinky Link I used my O.P.I Lip Colour in Baguette me not. I think that O.P.I's lip colours are actually nice and creamy. I used my Julie Hewett Cheekie in Destiny and MAC's Strange Potion for Nude, I absolutely love these colours together. The last colour I did was Peach, I used my Becca Cosmetics Tint. What do you think?

What are favourite lip colours?

I remember when I first started my blog, I was so excited. I felt like I was apart of an elite group (still think I am), not knowing what opportunists that I would be exposed to. I remember having my blog with absolutely NO followers, wondering if people would ever follow or is my blog interesting enough for people to read it. On November 4th 2010 I had about 250 followers, now I'm over 800 followers on Google and over 500 on Feedburner. When people asked me what did I do to get to this point, I really don't know, good content I guess. I'm so thankful for everyone who reads and actually like my blog. I've met so many people from around the world and even in my country through blogging. I love blogging and this is way more than a hobby, it's apart of my lifestyle now. 

Confession, I think I spend way too much time reading blogs one after the other, it took over my addiction to watching haul, fashion and beauty videos on youtube.
