Product Review: Sexy Red Lip Tint By “Romantic Bear” ♡



Today I’ll be reviewing a product for a lip tint in the colour sexy red by the brand “Romantic Bear”. You are supposed to smear the tint all over your lips, wait about ten minutes, peel it off, then it’s supposed to leave you with a beautiful natural looking colour. The price was good; only $1.00 per tube. You can get it on eBay for cheap. And from the reviews that I’ve seen, it works pretty great. But for some reason the one I bought was clumpy from the second I tried it. I can’t seem to make the substance more manageable to apply, so for that reason, I’m not as impressed by this product as I would like to be. For the price though, I cannot complain. It smells great and it looks good too. I would definitely buy again. For a more in depth review and to watch me apply it, please click the video posted down below. 



What’s In My Bag?

All over YouTube and blogs I see girls doing a video, showcasing the items that they carry in their bags and totes. I thought it’d be fun to jump on the bandwagon and create my own bag tag video. This is for spring 2015. Here is what I carry in my bag at all times:

Let’s take a look at my absolute fave, a cheap, simple option for beautiful, clearer skin.

My Fave Lip Glosses & Balms ❤




If you know me, then it’s no question at all—I’m addicted to everything lip product-wise. As you can tell from the photo above, I am a lip gloss maniac. Or, lip gloss connoisseur, even. Weekly I get new products and I’m always changing around my favourites. So, here’s my top ones that I am in love with at the moment . . .

❤Accoutrement’s Pickle Lip Balm, $4.78 CLICK HERE

Not good for going on a date or going somewhere really fancy, but it works awesome as a stocking stuffer, prank gift, or just chilling at home. It tastes exactly like dill pickles and it’s really unique. So whether or not you find this cool or revolting, it’s still pretty awesome.


❤Bee Kissed’s Mint Lip Balm, $1.99 CLICK HERE

You can get this in both lip balm and lip gloss form. Not only does it smooth your lips and make them feel brand new, it also has an irresistible flavour. And it also tingles once you put it on your lips and instantly cools them. 

❤The Body Shop’s Peach Lip Gloss, $10 CLICK HERE

Yes, $10 can sometimes be a little pricey just for one lip gloss but you have to buy it to believe it. The juicy flavour is definitely a must-have for any lip gloss lover! 



❤Paul Frank’s Julius’ Coconut Cream Lip Gloss, $3.95 CLICK HERE

Yummy, sweet and delicious. In a cool container, a tasty smell and even better flavour. Everyone loves Paul Frank!

❤Lip Smacker’s Lip Frosting: Milk Chocolate, $7.39 CLICK HERE

The flavour resembles a chocolate slushy and/or chocolate smoothie. You’ll feel like a cupcake putting this stuff on. 

❤Smith’s Strawberry Lip Gloss, $6 CLICK HERE

If you’ve ever played with Strawberry Shortcake dolls before then you will automatically remember this smell. That sweet, fruity, juicy smell and flavour of this strawberry lip gloss is just something you have to buy to know how fantastic it really is. It may just sound like your typical strawberry lip balm, but it’s way more than that. 

❤Pucker Ups’ Chocolate Mint, $2.79 CLICK HERE

Minty. Chocolaty. Lip balmy. Silkening with cocoa butter. Perfect for your lips, great for the wintertime.

❤Liplicious’s Cookies & Creme, LIMITED EDITION 

Sadly, I checked all over the internet and found out that this one was limited and is no longer in stores. I got it a couple years ago at a local Bath & Body Works. However, I’m sure you can find some online like at Amazon or eBay if you try hard enough. click here to find ones like this. This is one of my absolute fave lip glosses because it’s creamy, delicious, and actually tastes like cookies.

❤EOS (Evolution of Smooth) Lip Balms, typically $6 each CLICK HERE

Unique, colourful, fun, convenient, and in assorted varieties/flavours. These are all great characteristics to have in a lip balm. These do wonders for your lips. Every girl should have at least one.

❤Liplicious’s Winter Candy Apple, $8 CLICK HERE

These are seasonal, only available at Christmastime. This flavour also comes as fragrance sprays, perfumes, hand sanitizers, hand lotions, body lotions, candles, lip balms, lip glosses, air fresheners, and more. It’s a scrumptious sweet apple smelling gloss that you need to fill up on this holiday season.



A Quick Look At: Mackenzie High

So I’m pretty excited because (I’m going to call it a sneak peek) of Mackenzie High is now out. I call it that because it isn’t officially published yet, and there’s still some work left to do on it and I am still looking for a permanent publisher. But for the meantime, we have the sneak peek and I’m pretty happy with the way it all turned out. I also want to thank those who have purchased a copy of Mackenzie High and have provided me with some feedback. Everyone seems very engrossed with it and have both deep love and hatred for the characters, which is exactly how I wanted it to be. And—as mentioned before—this is only the beginning. There’s lots more to be done before Mackenzie High is released, but the journey has been awesome so far!

Here’s a look at:
