Corso's Cookies Review

Corso's Cookies Review

Hey ya'll :) Today were going to be talking a little about cookies, but not any old cookies were going to be discussing a brand I just discovered called Corso's Cookies. Just like everyone else I love a good sweet, especially cookies... now I know this isnt the healthiest thing to do but I have to have a sweet right as I wake up in the morning and Corso's Cookies hit the spot. The are incredibly sweet tasting, they have just the right amount of crunch to them where they wont crumble in your hand but you wont be breaking your teeth, I personally like to take the crust off the edge of the cookies so I have a bit of icing and cookie in every bite.

I got to sample the Hoppy Easter Cookie Bouquet, you can find this delicious Easter gift on their website for $59.99 for nine cookies or $49.99 for six cookies, this will include 3 bunnies, 3 carrots and 3 Easter eggs. Now I know what you may be thinking $60 is a lot for some cookies, yes you may be right but this isn't just cookies, for that price they are decorating an amazing bouquet that you can find for any occasion, they are giving you triple the size of a normal cookie you will find at the supermarket and of course most importantly you are paying for the taste.

As soon as my Easter bouquet arrived I first noticed how well it was packaged, it had bubble wrap all around the cookies so no chance at anything breaking and ruining that special holiday. After I got everything out and unwrapped it I immediately dove in and had to try one out, of course I wasn't disappointed but then I sat it on my island for everyone who came over could grab a little treat and as I figured they were all gone before I knew it with no complaints and a bunch of happy house quest. I encourage you to head on over to their website and take a look around at all the holidays/events you can find cookie bouquets for such as any holiday, birthday, just because, baby, the options are endless. I know with my birthday coming up in less than a couple of weeks I would love to get something like this as a gift.
I'm glad I had this opportunity to share with you a new brand of cookies and could give you an idea of that perfect gift for that special someone. As always don't forget to comment below letting me what you think of Corso's Cookies and which bouquet you will be trying first.

Is this the "Best of Beauty"

L'Oréal  Infallible Lip Paints Review/Swatches/Video

Hey Y'all, today we will be talking about the new L'Oréal Lip Paints. I have been testing these out for a few weeks now and let me start out with how confusing these lip products were at first, I didn't know if they dried more matte or stayed glossy. I think the name Lip Paints could throw a lot of people off, but they are most defiantly a glossy consistency, there is nothing matte about these lippies. I personally love the fact they are gloss, I think matte lippies have taken the internet by storm and it is time to start focusing on something different for a change.

Loreal released 14 shades in the Lip Paint line from nudes all the way to colors such as teal and they retail for $9.99, you can find these at your local drug store, Walmart, or Ulta. They are 0.27 FL.OZ which is a bit more than your typically lip product, extremely pigmented and will last a good bit before having to reapply, of course you will have to touch up after you eat as with any type of glossy lip but I would say you will get a good 4 hours of pigmented wear time before having to pull that lippie back out. They will not bleed on you at all so you do not have to wear any lip liner, although pairing with their Colour Riche Lip Liner can give you a beautiful ombre affect if that's something you look for in a lip look. They come with your typical doe foot applicator for an easy one layer application that anyone can master.

My favorite shades are 310 and 308, everyone knows how much I love my nudes but what they don't know is how beautiful I think a nice bold lip looks, if you typically stick to the first five shades in any type of lip products I highly suggest branching out and trying some of the bolder more unique shades... like I've always said "It is just makeup, you can easily take it off" but you might just be surprised at how much you love a bold look. As you can see from my swatches above these shades are overall glossy but do have a nice shine to them but are not sticky at all, I cant stand a lip product that is full of nasty stickiness, if you put on a gloss and pull your lips apart and get those little strings, that is an automatic no in my book, these luckily have zero stickiness to them which I appreciate so much! I highly recommend these to everyone out there, wither you are a makeup junkie like me who has to try everything that hits the market or you only wear makeup occasionally this is something I think everyone will want to get there hands on. Now remember these are a glossy consistency so if wearing glosses alone isn't your thing try pairing it over your favorite matte lippie to add that little something its been missing.

Are the L'Oréal Infallible Lip Paints considered the Best of Beauty? YES, absolutely.
My overall thoughts are go out right now and pick up a couple shades just to try out, I promise you wont be sorry, once you try them for yourself you will be wanting every shade in the line. As always don't forget to comment below and let me know which shade is your favorite and what your thought are on these new lip paints.

Love always,
