Maybelline Polka Dots and Electro Baby Lips

Hi guys!

Taking a moment to reflect on Cory Monteith's death this morning. I don't watch Glee, but losing yet another member of the arts community is never a good thing. My heart goes out to his family, friends, cast mates, and fans.

This is just a quick update to let you know about some new stuff I got!

No doubt by now you've heard about the new Polka Dots and Electro collections from Maybelline. From the time I first heard about the Polka Dots collection, I knew I wanted Clearly Spotted. I wasn't too interested in the Electro collection until I saw Emily Noel's blog post.

I've been searching for a good coral lip product (balm, stain, lipstick - I wasn't picky!) and I hadn't found one that I really wanted. While the Oh! Orange Baby Lips is obviously orange, it's sheer enough that when it mixes with your natural lip color, it turns a pretty peachy, coraly color.

On Monday, I picked up both of them at CVS (I love that the CVSes here actually carry the limited edition stuff I'm looking for!) and I'm in love.

I'm currently wearing Clearly Spotted on my nails over Julep's Renee, and it's awesome. It looks like paint splatter which is something I'm totally into, and it's actually really great for hiding small chips.

Please ignore my index finger!
Honestly, looking at the pictures I have now, they don't do this polish justice. I would definitely suggest looking at other swatches if you're into the paint splatter thing.

As for the Baby Lips, I tried to try the line itself before, but ended up accidentally buying the mint one (I'm starting to sense a theme..) which I don't like, so I hadn't tried it until this. I'm really sorry I didn't, because I love it. I'm definitely planning to pick up a non-colored one so I can have both.

Are you excited about either of these collections? What limited edition collections are you most excited about this summer?
