By now you’d think that the hype of these would be dying down, but nah! These are still as relevant as ever. The first time I spotted these (in September 2014) I was either in Cherish, or a beauty supply store and I was stoked, remembering Leina had compared them to the Too Faced Melted lipsticks . Hardly anyone else was on to them. Then of course, our lovely ladies at Moden Makeup posted about them and before you knew it, everywhere had them! Also like most things in Bim, with more hype comes higher, random pricing. So before you run out to go purchase these, be sure to check more than one place for the best price. I wouldn’t suggest paying more than $15 for these. If you’re more interested in the swatches, skip below the review.

Hey all! This review is long overdue, so I'll keep it nice and short. Late last year I bought these 2 lipglosses from MUDC here in Barbados and I've been loving them ever since.

Christmas was very good to me. I was able to snag a bunch of skin care minis from Clinique to try out, all while buying gifts. Score! You probably already know I’m always in search of a light-weight yet moisturising moisturiser for my normal skin type. I used to think I had dry skin and so I thought the richer the better, but turns out my face doesn’t agree, especially when you throw Barbados’ heat into the mix.

This is my first edited video in forever! Apologies in advance for the camera quality (I definitely can't fix that in post.) I haven't gotten my new camera s yet, but I was excited to try out this new editing program. This past month, I feel as though I went shopping a little too often haha. I forsee way less spending in April. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the haul video. And of course, if you have any questions on the products mentioned or would like to suggest something, please let me know!

Hey all! I purchased the Ruby Kisses (RK) 24hr Eyeshadow magic eyeshadow primer about a year ago... after spotting it in a local beauty supply for about $10BDS. It looks like a dupe for the infamous Urban Decay Primer Potion in terms of name, packaging and formula. I've not been so privileged to try the UDPP, but this primer works like nobody's business.

After seeing the wand of this mascara, I knew I had to try it. I had recently been using the original Voluminous, but this was supposed to be more fantastic. I picked up this intriguing tube of mascara from Collins for $18.15BDS, which isn’t too bad. (I still wish Barbados had coupons for these things)The brush looks a little scary at first, but the promise is that it elongates the lashes, especially at the outer corners of the eye. For anyone who’s ever worn lashes, you know how amazing that makes your eyes look. So did it really give that fluttered look?
