Review: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes in Fresh Pink, Candy Coral, & Hot Tamale

So, I've been hearing about these blushes and how they don't have much pigmentation. Because of all those reviews, I hesitated to get these. But in the end, I still really wanted them because they looked so pretty and unique. 
I have three shades: Fresh Pink (lightest shade,) Candy Coral, and Hot Tamale (darkest shade.)
When I swatched them with my fingers, they seemed pretty pigmented.
Here they are swatched onto my skin. I really like how they turned out, especially Hot Tamale. I'm glad that Hot Tamale is a little more subtle when swatched on my skin, so it's more wearable. They all show up on my skin since I'm pretty light-skinned. I do, however, have to sweep the light shades on my skin a few times to show up, which I don't mind at all. Also, they blend out easily.
The blushes feel a little like cream blushes but more satin-like and they don't pick up well with brushes. So your fingers are the way to go when using these blushes. Also as you can see, when touched, the blushes get dented when pressed on. They're kind of like clay. I was having way too much fun touching them.
Overall, despite the negative reviews that I've seen, I personally like these blushes. They're something different and fun. I don't have any blushes like these in my collection so they're a nice addition. I have no trouble with the pigmentation since my skin is a little pale. They just give my cheeks a nice touch of color and they're easy to blend out. I plan on picking up some of their other shades when I get the chance.

Hope you ladies enjoyed reading my review.

Review: Circle Lenses in EOS Adult Brown (Toric)

I have astigmatism, so I have to order toric lenses. Toric circle lenses have limited designs and are not as easy to find like regular circle lenses. I ordered my toric circle lenses from http://circlelens.net. It takes a while to receive because they still have to make the lenses. Also, it comes with a contact lens case.

I don't really like the design of these lenses.
They make my eyes look kind of creepy.
I was hoping they were going to look a little more natural.
Also, they don't make my eyes look any bigger since they're only 14.00mm.
Comfort-wise, I can go a few hours without the lenses bothering me, but by the end of the day, I'm dying to remove them so my eyes can breathe. Haha!
Overall, I don't really care for these lenses but would love to try a different design.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter: Tutti Frutti

Bare lips
With Tutti Frutti

I know a lot of ladies find Tutti Frutti to be intimidating because of how orange it looks, but it really applies beautifully. I love the shade and the texture. I normally can't pull off wearing lipsticks because my lips always end up drying up, so the Revlon lip butters are definitely my holy grail products right now. I also have three other shades that I will be blogging about soon.
