Broke Girl Guide’s Review:

MAC’s Ruby Woo has been the favourite for most people. The classic eye-popping lip stick shade never goes out of style, EVER! Wet’ n Wild’s Stoplight Red shade achieves the same color, DITTO. We didn’t even see much different in the shade.

Pros of Wisp Super Shock Highlighter from Colourpop

  • Lips take center stage!
  • This 4-hour, long wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, creme finish in one stroke.
  • Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed.
  • Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

Broke Girl Guide’s Review:

Anastasia’s brow products are always sold out, and it is always hard to get hands on it. NYX MIcrobrow Pencil is a great substitute for this and can give you perfect edges to your arches while blending out for the natural look.

  • A micro mechanical brow pencil that shapes, defines and fills in sparse brows for a natural look
  • Create a more defined brow by filling in areas that may be sparse or over-tweezed
  • The super-skinny tip draws ultra-fine lines, allowing you to create the look of natural brow hairs
  • Use short strokes to define the brow and fill in any sparse areas then soften edges using the spoolie end

Broke Girl Guide’s Review:

If you have tried Bobbi Brown Makeup, then you know that applying this foundation is as easy as ever. The reason that people use Bobbi Brown’s Skin foundation is because it can help control oil and it is long lasting.

This is a great product to have in your bag in case of emergencies.
