Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake Review


Effectiveness: 5/5



Strawberry Shortcake is medium pink with a satin finish.  It is slightly sheer and allows natural lip color to peek through and dictate its exact shade. 


Lip butters keep lips feeling hydrated and smooth. The product also feels weightless on the lips.

Ease of use:5/5

Lasting Power:4/5

This wore for around 3 hours on me.



Cost:Around 6-7 bucks at your local drugstore/Target/Ect

MAC Charmed I’m Sure Lipstick Review



Disclosure: This lipstick was given to me by a friend. All opinions are my own.

Charmed I’m Sure?! Yeah yeah I know this lipstick is no longer available and rather old. However, I figured I’d still review it in case anyone is still contemplating buying or swapping! Plus it’s just too pretty not to write about!

MAC Charmed I’m Sure Lipstick Review

Baking Beauty says: Charmed I’m sure is a rich, matte red. It wears amazingly well, but is slightly drying.



When lightly swatched this lippie almost looks pink. However, when build up it is a true matte red.

It never seems heavy or drying while on the lips. However, when it wears away you’re left with dry lips just begging for some balm!

Ease of use:4/5

I’d recommend using a scrub before applying.

Lasting Power:4/5

This wore for around 4 hours on me. It even left a light pinkish stain for a couple of hours after that.



MAC Charmed I’m Sure is
Best for those: Looking for a matte red
Avoid it if: You tend to have dry lips

While this baby is sold out, you can still pick one up on Amazon or Ebay!

What Mark Says:“Gloss doesn’t get more wonder-full than this! Not only does its awesome, ultra-high shine last for hours, it also stays right where you glide it on, resisting feathering and bleeding”.

Baking Beauty Says: Wonder Gloss lip shines come in super wearable colors that are non sticky.

Top to bottom: Peach, Nude, Pink


Lip shines come in 3 shades

Peach Shine:Is actually a sheer milky pink

Pink Shine: Is a pink rose


These glosses are hydrating and feel nice on the lips. There is zero stickiness!

Ease of use:5/5

They come with a doe foot applicator that is easy to use.

Lasting Power:3/5

Sadly most hydrating smooth glosses don’t wear that long. The nude/peach ones wore for around 1 hour while the pink one wore for around 2 hours.


The glosses add some sparkle to lips at an affordable price. The peach shine is so sheer,you probably already have something really similar, but I’d highly recommend the other 2!

Nars Turkish Delight Review

Disclaimer: The Nars Turkish Delight Lip Gloss used in this review was purchased with my own money.


What Nars says:”Serious shine and sexy color in sheer, semi-sheer and creamy formulas”.

What Baking Beauty says: Nars lip glosses are very moisturizing and never sticky.



Turkish Delight is a sheer, light pink. I’m a big fan of sheer lippies, but this one was a little uneven.

Ease of Use:5/5

It comes with a doe foot applicator that makes application a breeze.


I love the texture of these glosses. They contain Vitamin E which makes lips feel super soft. I would say it’s about as moisturizing as you can get with a gloss.

Lasting Power:4/5

The gloss wore for around 2-3 hours on me. This is above average compared to other glosses I own.



Considering this is a sheer gloss, it’s pretty dupeable. There are plenty of sheer pink glosses that are moisturizing.


Overall Nars Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight is

Best for:Those looking for a non drying gloss

Avoid it if:You’re on a budget


Available at: Your favorite Nars counter or online at Nordstrom

Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Rose Flush Review + Swatches

Disclosure: The Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Rose Flush used in this review was sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.

When it comes to everyday makeup I usually opt for a nude or pink gloss. Some of my very favorites come from the Laura Mercier Lip Glace Line. Therefore, I was really excited to try out a lip plumper in Rose Flush (part of the Dark Spell collection). It is is quickly becoming a new favorite!

Let’s see what Laura Mercier has to say about it.

Laura Mercier says:Instantly plump, hydrate and moisturize for healthier, sexier looking lips.

Baking Beauty says: Rose Flush is a hydrating, non sticky, gloss that lasts longer than average.

Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Rose Flush Review + Swatches

The gloss is moisturizing ,but I didn’t notice much plumping effect.








Rose Flush is a sheer rosy mauve color.


Lip Plumpers are a pleasure to wear. They never leave lips feeling dry, and are not sticky.

Ease of Use:5/5

The doe foot applicator plus sheer color means it easy to apply anywhere even without a mirror.

Lasting Power:4/5

This lasted around 3 hours on me which is most than other glosses!



Considering regular Laura Mercier Glaces are only $24, I might opt for one of those next time considering I didn’t see much plumping action.



Overall Laura Mercier Lip Plumpers are

Best for: Those looking for a sheer, shiny wash of color
Avoid it if: You like opaque coverage

Cost: $30.00

Available: At your favorite Laura Mercier counter and online at Nordstrom.

MAC Angel Lipstick Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The MAC Angel Lipstick used in this review was purchased with my own money.

Baking Beauty Says: MAC Angel has always been a cult/celeb favorite. Now its one of mine. The soft pink color is easy to wear, and the formula is lightly moisturizing.

MAC Angel Lipstick Review and Swatches



MAC Angel is a light baby pink. One swipe is sheer, but you can build it up.It also doesn’t come off as a “frost” to me.


A lot of MAC lip products really dry me out. However, Angel was lightly moisturizing. It didn’t make me lips feel amazing, but it didn’t make me feel uncomfortable or dry either.

Ease of Use:5/5

Lasting Power:4/5

It wore for around 3 hours on me before I needed to touch up.



This is my everyday pink. If it’s the kind of color you like I’d say its worth the money!


Available At:Your local MAC Counter or online at Nordstrom
