Hey folks, sorry I missed my usual day of posting yesterday. Let’s blame it on taking extra time off for my birthday. 🙂
Anyways, today I have my third 5 Minute Face for you. And it’s styled in my favourite colour: purple! I wanted to show that you can have a bright look in under 5 minutes as well.

Yes, another video. I am so excited to share this one with you, it’s my best video yet!
Today I am talking about the new It’s Balm Lip Crayon colours from Julep (and yes, I do have a small rant about the product’s name change).
The lip crayons reminded me a lot of other lip balms. You had to do a few swipes to get some decent colour payoff and needed to be reapplied in an hour or two. On the flip side, I felt comfortable applying without a mirror since I wasn’t concerned with getting it all over my face like I am with some lipsticks. The smell is pleasant, kind of a sweet, vanilla-cake smell but can get a little cloying after awhile.
From top to bottom, left to right: Apricot Nude, Dusty Orchid, Nectar Pink and Ripe Raspberry.
Overall, I like this product. Now that I’ve tried a few more colours, I would probably be willing to try more. I mention in the video how much I hate Aurora Pink creme and that has deterred me from trying more, which really isn’t fair since the colour just simply doesn’t go with my skin tone, no other reason.

For those of you who are already Julep Mavens, they’ve release the sneak peek of the February Maven box and this month, they are featuring the Julep Eyeshadow 101. Watch my review of that beauty product here.
Have you tried It’s Balm? Does this review make you want to add an It’s Balm onto your next Julep box? I’d love to hear your thoughts. If you’d like to sign up for Julep, feel free to use my referral code here.
Hey folks, did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? Mine was great. I’m one of the few people I know who actually looks forward to turkey and then all the turkey leftovers. Daughter Dearest also had a great time playing with Cousins although listening to four girls under 10 laugh and bicker and fight drives Grandma Dee and I a little crazy.
Today I’m going to bring you a video giving you my first impression of the new eyeshadow sticks by Julep called Eyeshadow 101. While this isn’t the first video I’ve done, this is the first one I’ve featured on my blog for reasons that will become clear in the coming weeks.
So, here’s the Julep blog post picture I reference in the video that shows the colours from lightest to darkest.
