I think I'm getting sick... noooo! The left side of my throat and my left ear hurt. Weird. I hope I don't have an ear infection or something. I can just hear my mom spouting off this long list of herbs and vitamins to take before I get really sick. I know some people don't believe that stuff helps, but I just know that I didn't get sick nearly as often when I still lived with my parents and I took it all the herbal concoctions she threw at me. Now I'm cheap and lazy and don't take any of it and get sick a lot more often! What do you guys to when you feel sickness coming on? Take something or just wait and hope you don't actually get sick?
Whew, I'm really behind on writing reviews. I bought the above set of lipstick and lipgloss a month or two ago and still haven't gotten around to posting about it. Whenever I'm late with posting reviews I'll just use the excuse that I needed more time to test the products. It makes me sound more dedicated and hard working that I really am! :-P
Buxom's Travel In Style Lip Duo retails for $18 and comes with a mini lipstick in New Orleans and a mini lipgloss in Tara. These are rather small in size. The lipstick is pictured extended all the way so that is all the product it contains. Really, I know without a doubt I will still never use either of these up so I prefer the smaller size.
Here is the lipgloss compared to a full size Buxom lipgloss (the color is Lacey).
|New Orleans and Tara|
According to Sephora, New Orleans is desribed as a warm pink and Tara is described as a "sheer pink glimmer". They both look coral-ish on me. The lipgloss also has these really pretty blue/violet sparkles.

This one doesnt impart much color at all on my lips, but I love the contrasting blue sparkles. They're small enough as to not be gritty and don't make you look as if you have disco ball lips.

The two colors look really great together and Buxom did an awesome job packaging them together.
Overall, I really love the lipgloss formula and plan to pick up more of them. I love the lipstick also and want to get more, but I don't wear lipstick all that often so I'll probably hold of a bit on them.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
