If you saw my Target Haul, you know that I picked up a Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter and a Maybelline Color Whisper. Since the products are very similar, I decided to compare and contrast the two to help you guys decide if you want to buy one, and which one you want! (To see my post about another Color Whisper I bought, see the Makeup section!)
While I do like the Revlon Colorburst lip butter, I prefer the Maybelline Color Whsiper. I like that it is cheaper, and you get more product. With price & size aside, there is only one other thing I like better with the Color Whisper. That is the thickness of the product. At least for my lips, I feel the Colorburst lip butter is a little too thick and it makes it harder for me to apply. I think the Color Whisper's size is great and makes applying it super easy!
Which do you prefer?
TIP: Use argan oil on your lashes to add moisture and thicken them!
I suggest the Josie Maran Argan Oil (sold at Sephora)
If you saw my recent Target Haul, then you know I picked up Maybelline's version of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter, Color Whisper. In my haul I purchased one in the color Faint For Fuchsia. This is a bright pink color with blue undertones. I really liked the first one and just picked up the shade Pin Up Peach today. (I will have a review of the Color Whispers and a comparison with the Revlon Lip Butters up soon!)
Above are 3 photos of the product, as well as a swatch on the back of my hand. Something I do like about this product is that it is not sealed, so you can remove the lid in store to see the exact color. This product really does look exactly the same on your hand/lips as it does in the container, so it gives you a great image in your mind. Although, since they aren't sealed, you should probably take one from the back of the display and wipe off the tip before using it on your lips.
This color, Pin Up Peach, is a really pretty warm pinky coral. I like the formula of the Color Whispers because they are very smooth and moisturizing, like a lip balm, pigmented, like a lip stick, and glossy & shiny like a lip gloss. So, this is great to get everything you want in one product. Although, I do have to admit that the formula does feel a little bit waxy. I also like the size of them, they are thinner than normal lip sticks, which I find makes it easier to apply.
They do not last longer than an hour or two, but, lip products do wear off really easy no matter what. I personally don't have a problem with it because a lipstick is super easy to
I don't have a lot of lip gloss, compared to most gurus. I'm not really a lip makeup person because I normally don't have time to apply and I don't ever have time to reapply during the day. But, here's what I've got!

My Key Products:
I start off my brows with basic combing with any brow comb. I comb the hairs slightly angled up more than they are naturally up until my arch and then I come them down. This helps create more of an arch to my rather archless brows.
Next I take my Elf brow "mascara" (which is just a typical gel) to set the hairs in place. Even though this product is only a dollar, I actually really like it. It gives you the same look as a gel from Anastasia. I let the gel dry while doing my eye or face makeup.
Then it's time to fill 'em in! I use the Sephora brow editor kit which comes with a light & dark powder, wax, little tweezers, a little spoole and a little brush. I use the darker powder in the outer half of my brows in any place that the hair is sparse. I then use the lighter powder in the inner half. I half to be very careful with filling in my brows because even if they are the same color as my hair, they still look super weird if they are even some what dark. I use a small liner/brow brush from Coastal Scents because it picks up the pigment very nicely and I love how small it is.
I also sometimes fill in my brows with the Avon pencil. I like to have a pencil handy because it is quicker to do for those days that I'm in a hurry.
There it is! That's how I do my brows!
