/Lips/ Maybelline Quenched Baby Lips Lip Balm

this was purchased by me.

Before the year ends, I'd like to squeeze in another review. I have another lip product here and this time it's a lip balm from Maybelline's Baby Lips line. I picked up the shade Quenched (005) which is a clear because I wanted a lip balm I could use daily without worrying about color or sparkles on my lips, but would provide enough hydration for me. I also liked that this lip balm has an SPF of 20 to protect my lips during the day. After about 3 months of using this, I'm ready to share my thoughts in it with you.

/Make-up/ NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer Jar

this was purchased by me.

When I first started wearing make-up, concealer wasn't a very important thing for me. Over the years, I've come to think of it as a lifesaver in making me look presentable. I first got into concealers for blemishes, but recently I've been looking for concealers to combat the dark circles that have been appearing under my eyes (I'm getting so old....). I was attracted to this NYX on because it was cheap and cruelty-free. After using this for a few months, I'm ready to share my thoughts with you.

/Lips/ Wet n Wild Don't Blink Pink Mega Last Lip Color

this was purchased by me.

When browsing at a Rite Aid one day I stumbled upon this lipstick from Wet n Wild. I've been more interested in this brand since it's very affordable and most of the products I've used from this line are pretty good. I picked up a lipstick because it was one of the things I haven't tried yet and I can't resist lippies. As I've had this a few months, I feel ready to share my thoughts with you.

/Diet/ Weeks 17 & 18

I'm still working on this diet/fitness thing. I would say it's going decent as I've been mostly sticking to it for the last 5 months. I will say that the exercising part has become more routine and easier with Blogilates. I started following her monthly calendars last month, the beginner one, and now I just started the regular one for this month.

The workouts for the regular calendar are much more difficult and painful, but I do my best to finish them all. I feel my body getting stronger and I was glad to discover I've lost about 1" around my calves. Those leg exercises are doing something after all. In terms of diet with food, I think I'm doing better. I'm more conscious about what I eat and I eat less of things. This past Thanksgiving wasn't as bad as previous years when I would basically eat all day. I'm a little worried about my upcoming trip to Chicago...I want to stick to my workout schedule and eat healthy, but it's going to be difficult when I have family and friends to see. I have to try though.

.Weight: 117.5 lb/53.3 kg
.BMI: 19.5
.Current Routine: Blogilates workouts, stretching, running when I can, eating less
.Goals: Finish this month's Blogilates Calendar, eat more healthy (esp. vegetables)

/Make-up/ L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation

this was purchased by me.

I'm always looking for products that will make my complexion look a little nicer be it skincare or cosmetics. I've been wanting to try this foundation for a while because it was said to be a dupe for Giorgio Armani's Maestro foundation, which is super expensive. Being the frugal, poor person I am, I bought this instead when it was on sale & when I had a $1 off coupon. Having used it for a few months, I'm glad to share my thoughts on this product with you.
