Advent Blog: Benefit Bad Gal Liner and Lush's Mint Julips
"Santa Claus has nothing to do with it," the latke said. "Christmas and Hanukah are completely different things."
"But different things can often blend together," said the pine tree. "Let me tell you a funny story about pagan rituals." ~Lemony Snicket, The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story

Day 11: Benefit Bad Gal Eye Liner Waterproof in Black
This is a little black eye liner. I have a lot of liners, but I'm sure this will be a good one. I haven't tried it yet. I'm happy to have this. I think Benefit has good quality products. I will come back and write what I think about it once I've used it.
Review: It just seems like an ordinary black liner. There is nothing bad about it. It smudges, but I like that I can smudge it out. It doesn't seem like something better than any drugstore liners I have. I wouldn't buy the full size version. I think Milani or L'Oreal or Covergirl, etc do just as good liners.
Lush's Mint Julips Lip Scrub
I've used this for several days now, and I love it! It tastes like mint chocolate! It is funny how it works, you wet your lips and then scrub. When you are done you actually lick your lips off because this stuff is edible! It tastes so good! I like this better than the lip scrub that I made. It is filled to the very top, so you have to be careful not to spill it. I brought this with me to work and it hardened in the car, so I have to keep this at room temperature. I still like my Victoria Secret scrub because it comes with a lip balm inside the same container as the scrub. After using the scrub, you need to moisturize your lips.
This is what the website says, "Mint-chocolate pout polish, Just like the scrumptious cocktail served in hot southern summers, Mint Julips is packed full of fresh peppermint and sweet castor sugar. Peppermint is responsible for that 'tingly feeling' you get after brushing your teeth or using lip balm, so we thought it would make a perfect addition to our lip scrub! Plus, it makes Mint Julips taste like a big, creamy bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream."
I have heard about Lush's scrubs before and I wanted to try them. They also have one in bubble gum, popcorn, and Santa Baby is cola flavored. You can also get lip balms at Lush, but I already have tons of lip balms I still can use.
Today is my mom's birthday! She is my best friend. She is my biggest cheerleader. I'm so glad she is in my life. I love to spend time with her. She's really funny.
I hope you all have a fun day today, and you keep warm!
