Im Really Sorry For Being MIA!

 I hate to leave you all hanging...

but to be honest, life has been crazily busy atm and as sad and guilty i feel about this, i really havent had the time to sit down, swatch and review products.. and trust me, theres a ton that i really want to share with you all because they are amazing products!

for those interested in knowing why i have slowly stopped posting as often as i'd like (*eek! sorry. i know its horrible) i actually recently got a new job! Its an accounting office job so while 99% of you may think that is super boring, i actually fall in the crazy 1% who enjoys it more than i should lol :) *nerd face*

haha but to be honest, im not enjoying it JUST because im the biggest. nerd. ever. surprising? haha no, its really because:

a) i have just started my new job so everything is still really new and amazing
b) i am meeting all kinds of lovely amazing people
c) i can kinda sorta play "dress-up" every morning as i absolutely ADORE business casual outfits <3
d) i now have a paycheck which equals more shopping for more outfits & makeup <3
e) my office is right across from a mall. so yup! thats right, my paycheck's gone before i get it! ;)

lol so all in all, life's been good! but on top of a full time job, im also taking an online course. which really makes things difficult! i originally took the course so i wouldnt be sitting around (this was BEFORE i got the job).. and now im going crazy trying to make days last longer so i have enough time to fit everything in! haha 

anyways, sorry to bore you all with all thats happening! I promise once i get some free time, i will swatch everything like crazy and sneak in posts here and there! Please bear with me for a bit! But until then, i hope you all are having a wonderful fall :) xoxo!

Im So Glad We Met Again, Volume Lip

Seriously, SO glad!

The first time around when i tested out Annabelle's Volume Lip Lipglosses, I liked them, but I wasnt in love. This time around, I was sent one (in the shade tangerina) and seconds later, i was frantically digging through my collection for all my other ones! How they were not part of my daily routine i do not know. I think it comes down to the fact that back then, i really did not wear lipgloss often.. shame on me i know :(

but anyways, the past is the past and i am ready to re-review these gorgeous lipglosses for you all! In total, including all the others in my collection, i now have six and have found a permanent spot for several in my purse. Lets take a look at some pictures :)

here are the previous swatches from my collection

cherryoke, metro mango, vivid volume, sweet tweets, iced sugar

and here is the swatch of my new addition :) meet tangerina

I still hold on my previous review with the flaws i stated. Firstly, these tubes are a bit tough to apply since they a tad too sturdy, secondly the name of the product is printed on a sticker which MUST be removed prior to using the product, and finally, there is a lack of pigmentation when comparing hand swatches to actual lip application.

However, getting those flaws out of the way, let me then tell you why i am SO glad to find these again. Firstly, even though the colors are sheer, these add a gorgeous tint to your lips. They give you just a touch of color that instantly brightens up your face and that is exactly what i need. especially now that i'm out of school and entering the work area, i dont want anything too "in-your-face" if you know what i mean :p

Secondly, the formula is amazing! Just a little dot and even if you have dry, cracked lips.. your lips will feel insanely smooth! Very moisturizing and not sticky at all (unless you decide to layer lots! and even then, its not even that sticky!) Not only that, but i find that it also helps plump up your lips without that burning feeling which is a nice addition :)

So overall, Im definitely enjoying these again :) Have you guys tried this before? Let me know what you think!
