Neutral Feelings About a Not so Neutral Palette

No more than a month ago, Gabby and I went shopping, and as we were walking down the street, we noticed a sign stating that the local salon was hosting a big sale, and us, being the beauty fanatics we are, couldn't resist. We browsed their selection for a while, the sale didn't turn out to be as big as advertised and we weren't finding anything we particularly liked, until we came across an eyeshadow palette. We opened it to reveal 40 amazing colors, and the best part of all--it was only $5!  After purchasing the palette we headed home and immediately started experimenting. To our dismay the sleek black exterior didn't quite fit with it's contents. Many of the lighter colors were barely visible (eliminating any wearable colors), I noticed a sizable amount of fallout, and the eyeshadow itself was nothing spectacular. Thank goodness we didn't pay full price!

  • The darker/brighter colors are highly pigmented.
  • 40 colors in the palette.
  • Isn't irritating to my eyes or skin.
  • Pretty case :)
  • The lighter/normal colors DO NOT SHOW UP.
  • A considerable amount of fallout.
  • It hardly has any shimmering shadows. (Which could be good or bad depending on what you like. I personally don't mind a little sparkle.)
Would I Repurchase:
I suppose I would, but only if I could find it at a discounted price because I don't think this palette is worth $17.

Price: $16.99

You Can Find it At:, besides their website I'm unsure of where their products are sold.

Well, it's better than Wet and Wild, but it doesn't even compare to my precious MAC.

C Me Frown: Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Citrus Lip Butter

For a long time I have been wanting anything by "Yes To Carrots". Today, I finally mustered up the courage to actually spend some money. For $2.99, I picked up a bright Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Citrus Lip Butter. Well, thank goodness I also picked up a pack of Rainbow Mentos, for if I hadn't, you would C Me Frown! The moment this balm touched my lips I was filled with disappointment. There was no energizing citrus scent or aroma whatsoever, despite the fact that in contained many natural fruit oils. In fact, it had a horrible taste (and an iffy smell). The balm was kind of creamy, but not enough to make up for its horrible taste and smell. It was actually quite moisturizing. I am familiar with many balms that do a great job, though, so it's not that amazing. I most definitely will not be repurchasing this flavor again. I might give Berry a chance..MIGHT.


^See?! So many fruit oils, so little flavor!

Price: $2.99 for 0.15oz

  • Slightly creamy
  • Moisturizing (Average)
  • Has a horrible taste
  • Costs as much as the amazing Burt's Bees Balms
  • Has no Citrus aroma whatsoever
  • Has no Citrus taste whatsoever
You make like this if....
  • You already love Yes To Carrots Lip Butter
  • You have no tastebuds :D
You may dislike this if...
  • You're a normal human being
  • You hate Yes To Carrots Lip Butter
  • You want a good-tasting lip balm
  • You want an actual Citrus lip balm

Overall, this product

Save your money!
As I said before, thank goodness for mentos!

Long Time

Well, after 19 posts filled of the, ahem...interesting...thoughts of my fellow blogger/best friend for EVER :) you finally get to here a new perspective. A perspective that was introduced to you readers in the very post, then mysteriously vanished, and was never heard from again...UNTIL NOW!

Call it what you may--laziness, procrastination...but I personally think my deficiency of posts was based upon the fact that I am lackadaisical blogger (don't understand? LOOK IT UP.) But I'm putting my past behind me, and you will most indefinitely be hearing (technically reading...but screw technicalities) a lot more from me :) Enjoy!!

Fashion Week: Colored Powder Hair?

Runways are commonly know for their crazy hairstyles and wacky fashions,
 but this might've just topped them all! At the Thakoon show during Fashion Week,
models walked down the runway with neon powder in their hair. This look was created by
 Odile Gilbert for Kerastase. The inspiration? A hair technique commonly used in India t
hat involves a vast amount of pink clay.

What do you think? Would you EVER try this?
Because I know that I would end up reserving this look for a lonely Saturday...


BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar Hand Cream!

Warm Vanilla Sugar® Shea Cashmere Hand Cream - Signature Collection - Bath & Body WorksWarm Vanilla Sugar® Shea Cashmere Hand Cream - Signature Collection - Bath & Body WorksAfter trying one of my friend's hand cream from Bath and Body Works, I  just knew I had to get myself one--or two. These hand creams were the thickest, creamiest, and most luxurious ones on the market! She owned the new scent, "Carried Away", and it positively divine. I was tempted to pick one up with its gorgeous floral packaging, but Warm Vanilla Sugar was just calling my name with its delectable vanilla aromas. I am so glad I got to pick up one! It's scent always reminds me of winter, and cozying up by the fire. I think that vanilla smells amazing and this hand cream just made it even better! You pick up tons of vanilla, but swirled into it are a few woody aromas. I honestly have no clue wahat "basmati rice water" is, but I sure know that I don't pick up any in this hand cream. Okay, back to the texture! This hand cream takes your hands to Cloud 9! You know those thick and rich Betty Crocker frostings? Well this hand cream is literally just that for your hands! It's wonderful! And oh, duh! You're hands are left super smooth. THe bottle looks really small, but truly, you only need a tiny dot to give your hands deep hydration.

Price: $10.00 for 2.5oz of LUSCIOUSNESS:)

  • As thick as Betty Crocker Frostings...Yumm...
  • Your hands are left supple
  • The fragrance lingers on hands all day
  • The scent smells amazing (Vanilla with a few woody notes)
  • A little goes a long way!
  • Comes in a variety of scents (I only wish they were flavors...)
  • SMELLS GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT (This may result in death if swallowed.)
  • Some may find it pricey, but for how much you need per use, IT'S NOT.
You make like this if...
  • You already love BBW Hand Creams
  • You are looking for a winter scent in a hand cream (yet I use it in all seasons)
  • You are looking for a super-moisturizing hand cream that WORKS
  • You already love the Warm Vanilla Sugar scent

  • You hate hand creams
  • You hate BBW
  • You hate the Warm Vanilla Sugar Scent
  • You're crazy....:)

Lavender Lips: Hit or Miss?

Recently, MAC just launched a new line of matte lipsticks in far out shades. Their "Posh Paradise" collection features vivid (and natural..) shades of paint pots, and a new lipstick with the name "Mattene". One of the shades in the Mattene lipstick collection happened to be a lush matte lavender. Lavender?! I know, right. This shade, named "Fresh Amour" costs a mere $14.50. I don't know about you, but if I ever have a random $15 lying around, I may just pick this up  This isn't the first time I've ever seen a purple lip, though. Every once in a while, runways sneek in a few purple pouts and celebrities flaunt them. What do you guys think? Lavender Lips: are they a hit or miss?

A Bad Chick and a Flower Girl Eat Sour Grapes..

I recently picked up 3 of Sinful Color's Nail Art Polishes. If you didn't already get it from the title, I purchased the shades called "Bad Chick", "Flower Girl", and "Sour Grapes". Love the last one's name, right?! Bad Chick is a basic white used for just about anything. Flower Girl is this gorgeous gold glittery shade. You know how some glitter polishes only put a few glitter specs on your nails? Well, not with this one! The polish is totally opaque with fine gold glitter. Sour Grapes is a purple-ish neon fuschia. I loooovee each and every one of them. The packaging is nice, sleek, and about half the size of Sinful Color's regular polishes. They look like they should cost 10x more than they do. Soon, we shall find out if they work like they should cost 10x more. Plus, they come in every color under the sun. For only $1.99, I might just have to purchase the whole entire rainbow.

NOTE: I've had this on for only 2 days. I'll update on how long it is lasting for me.

Stupid camera hasn't come in's a picture from of the shade "Sour Grapes". ONCE I FINALLY GET THE CAMERA, I'll show you:D

  • They're super cheap (Only $1.99!)
  • They are available in every color imaginable
  • The Glitter ones are OPAQUE
  • The brush makes creating designs easy and fun
  • They don't take forever to dry
  • They last for a good amount of time
  • Sometimes the brush grabs too much polish. If you don't swirl it on the sides of the bottle, it can drip on your nails.
  • My "Flower Girl" one smelled HORRIBLE. Okay, not that bad. You could smell something, though. Maybe I just got a bad batch...
You make like this if...
  • You are looking for a cheap nail art polish.
  • You are looking for an opaque glitter nail art polish.
  • You are looking for a NA polish with a good brush.
  • You are looking for a NA polish that lasts a while.
  • You are looking for a NA polish available in tons of colors
  • You already like Sinful Color's regular polishes.
You may dislike this if...
  • You are super sensitive to smells (You might end up with a bad batch)
You can find this at...
  • RiteAid
  • Walgreen's
  • Other online stores (, etc)

Friday Fall Scents!

In honor and celebration of the arrival of fall, you will see these "Friday Fall Scent" posts every Friday! Here's to colorful leaves and crisp autumn air!
This week's scent?

Tart, Ripe Apples!
^Cinnamon optional!
The juicy aroma of tart apples brings back family memories of the orchards. With a dash of cinnamon, my dreams are brought to Thanksgiving dinner, and luscious apple pie. Anything with the word "apple" in it takes my mind straight to autumn, so smelling like a walking apple pie (but prettier...) only makes my obsession of fall worse.

But enough with my sappy memories. I'm sure you're far more interested in the products!

BBW Fresh Market Apple Handibac Moisturizing Hand Lotion
($4.00 each, $5.00 for 2)
I honestly wish my hands were edible (wait..nevermind). I wish that this LOTION was edible, because if it tastes as well as it looks, well...just yummm. It's about the same consistency as their regular body lotions, so I was surprised that I even liked this a little. It conditions hands while sanitizing, for clean moisturized palms. Plus, a delicious apple scent lingers on your hands all day. There's no cinnamon found here! The aroma of this lotion is just plain ol' tart apples. :P I really want apples now....
Black Candy Apple Travel-Size Body Lotion - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works

BBW Warm Harvest Apple Triple Moisture Body Cream ($12.50)
I was already big on BBW's Triple Moisture Body Creams, so when I found out this fragrance was launched, I was immediatly drawn to it. It's a succulent blend of fruits and sugarcane, but apple is there the most. The cream itself was very thick, which I love. It absorbed quickly and wasn't greasy at all. My alligator legs were finally moisturized. :D

BBW Black Candy Apple Body Lotion ($5.00)
This travel-sized lotion is scented with a mouth-watering blend of juicy apple and warm vanilla. This one reminds me most of apple pie. I also love the regular body lotions for their fast absorbency and quenching properties. The scent itself is left on your skin all day. Okay, I REALLY am craving apples after all these.

BBW Forbidden Apple Lip Gloss ($8.00)
Where would we be without a delicious lip gloss? NOWHERE. This yummy gloss hydrates lips and delivers shine and color while tingling your tastebuds (hehe :P) with an oh-so-tasty apple flavor. Your lips are usually left with a hint of cherry red on them, but occasionally you get the sheer plum swirl (still apple-flavored). Liplicious glosses in general are non-sticky and long-lasting. This one doesn't fall short of the Liplicious standards in any way.
Forbidden Apple Treacherous Treats Lip Gloss - LipLicious - Bath & Body Works

Are you craving apples just as much as I am yet?

I thought so..

Bye everybody!

Keep Me Clean Clarifying Facial Wipes!

^A "Meh" image of the wipes 2 minutes before purchasing them.

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to CVS and stocked up on facial products. I had already been a huge fan of Formula 10.0.6, so I was immediatly drawn to the display of facial products by them. I purchased their "Keep Me Clean Clarifying Facial Wipes" for a mere $5.99, along with Clean & Clear's Morning Burst Brightening Facial Cleanser for about $1 more. These quick and easy wipes have been an absolute dream to work with. Just one pre-moistened wipe cleanses, clarifies, tones, and finishes with a refreshing tingle. The slight tingle I got from these wipes resembles the one I get from my Clinique Clarifying Lotion (a toner), so that was a nice addition. It claims to remove makeup, and trust me, it does, but I got a stye quickly after using them for eye makeup-removing purposes. I highly reccomend them for the rest of your face, though. In my opinion, they cleanse very well. They're great for those nights/mornings when you are too lazy to do your skincare routine. I brought them on a cottage trip, where my skin was often smothered with sand, dirt and other "nasties". Within 2 seconds, these wipes removed every last impurity from my skin and left it fresh and fabulous! Sadly, it only comes with 25 wipes. $5.99 is a little pricey for the amount you are getting, but the quality and effectiveness takes all that worry away! It's good to know that these wipes are drenched with "do-gooders" like cucumber and witch hazel. Overall, these wipes are a great product and I will definitely be re-purchasing this item again. So, go ahead and purchase them! Your skin will thank you!

Purse Bobby Pin Holders!

If you're anything like me, you probably often lose your bobby pins at the bottom of your purse. After five minutes of searching with my hand, I usually end up giving up. One day, I thought and thought about how I would put an end to this. I saw an index card lying on the floor, and a bobby pin on the table, and I immediatly came up with an idea! You simply just take the index card, and put the bobby pins on the index card. I keep three on an index card, and I shove it in my wallet. It's so easy, yet I never thought of it until now! This way, grabbing a bobby pin is as easy as grabbing an ordinary card. Hope you all try it!

Guess what?! My camera is coming in soon! SO THAT MEANS ACTUAL PICTURES.

I'm getting Chubby!

Well, sort of.

I reecently picked up Clinique's Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry. It's even greater than I imagined. These gorgeous lip crayons glide on smoothly and drench your lips in a sheer wash of conditioning color. It's formulated with moisturizing shea butters and mango butters. It's basically an amazing lip balm, but better. With a few swipes, you get a sheer "just had a  cherry popsicle" stain on your lips, and you can easily amp up the color to a bold red lip with a few more swipes. I would actually prefer this over other lipsticks when it comes to the red lip! I've been using it for about 2 weeks now, and my lips definitely feel more supple and soft than they did with ordinary balms. It's absolutely a great buy, and I plan to repurchase it (possibly in different shades..).

I would love to give you tons and tons of swatches and pictures, but ALL of my cameras are still not back from the repair shop.

May Your Hair Thirst No More!

I used to, and still am highlighting my hair with natural lemon juice. It's a simple and affordable way to get back the same gorgeous blonde I had as a child. The only con to this method is damage. Lemon juice bleaches and dries out your hair, therefore leaving it parched and begging for some conditioning. One day, my mother came home with a leave-in-treatment for my sister's knots. I was able to try this conditioning spray, and it was love at first sight. Every time after that, there were two Aveeno  Nourish + Condition Leave-In-Treatments left on the kitchen counter. This leave-in-treatment truly has been wonderful. My hair is now soft, strong, and tangle-free. This spray is currently part of my daily hair routine. Fresh out of the shower, I spritz my roots with this quneching spray and brush to spread the happiness. For about 8 bucks at your nearest drugstore, you, too can join me and finally give your hair that drink it always craved.

Now if I could just get a decent haircut....


NUANCE-Salma Hayek

When I first heard about Salma Hayek's new line of products exclusively sold at CVS, I asked myself, "What the heck is a nuance?" Well, now, things have changed, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the cosmetics. I am totally fascinated by the eyeshadow quads that fold into a portable dome. The lip gloss packaging and shades look absolutely gorgeous, too! In the next week, I should have a few of her items, and I can't wait to tell you much I love (or possibly hate..) them!

Clinique Fall 2011-BLACK HONEY

In all honesty, I was pretty satisfied with Clinique's Black Honey Collection. It was a brilliant idea and I was super excited for it. I came across one or two flaws I disliked, but that's it. Although, It wasn't as great as the Strawberry Fudge Collection, in my opinion. The whole Black Honey collection was just neutrals. Don't get me wrong, I love neutrals so much, but the strawberry fudge collection included ingenious shades that made me believe in brights!

The product I had the most issues with was the Gradient Powder Blusher . I'm not so much disappointed in the quality of the blush, but more the shade.  I was so eager to get it,  but when I swatched it at the Clinique counter, I immediatly changed my mind. The picture below makes it appear wearable and gorgeous, but in real life, it's absolutely unwearable. I ran my finger up and down the right side once (the darker side) and my finger was literally a deep plummy red. I highly doubt that a deep plummy red suits the majority of females interested in this product. As for the lighter side meant to highlight? Also a big thumbs down. In the image below, it appears to be a nice peachy nude, but when swatched, it was a dark nude that made my light/medium skin look very sallow. Maybe they just had a really bad and dark tester out? Whatever the case, I'm glad I purchased a lid smoothie instead.
Gradient Powder Blusher

Clinique Black Honey Gloss Duo ($21.00)
I was just about to get it, then I put it back. I totally regret that decision. I had always been afraid of going anywhere near anything plum right before school started, until this came. The Almost Lipstick was a super sheer nude that seemed to compliment my skin very well. I tested the gloss, and it was the pretty much the same as the almost lipstick, but with loads of shine. It lasted the whole entire shopping trip, and wasn't too sticky. Hopefully, my nearest counter still has some left for me when I go. Eventually, you will come across a picture I got from that shows swatches of the almost lipstick and gloss.

Black Honey Eyeshadow Quad ($25.50)
I was really impressed with this product, actually. I own many Clinique shadows, so I expect them to be smooth, creamy, and long-lasting, and these shadows were all that multiplied by two. All of the shades glided on my eyelids, and stay put throughout the day. I fell head over heels for the actual shades in this compact, too. The lightest was a perfect highlight, while the 2nd shade was a perfect shimmering base and the last two were great for lining and contouring! Overall, I am very pleased with this quad of shadows.

I actually cannot say anything about the gel/ cream eyeliner. It looked gorgeous and natural! Too bad I never got to try it. :( I am a fan of Clinique's cream liners, though. They last all day, are creamy, and application is a breeze.


Even More Paradise For Your Feet (and Hands)!

How do you get amazing tropical scents for a good price? The answer CVS' Essence of Beauty Tropical Papaya Collection! Infused in each luxurious formula is the aromas of sweet papaya, tangy green apple, fresh melon, and zesty citruses. This delicious scent is available in a body & hand cream, a shower gel, a body mist, an eau de toilette, and a body lotion. I have yet to actually purchase the perfumes in fear of it being "to sweet for a perfume". As for the lotions? They're simply luxurious! The Body & Hand Cream is my absolute favorite out of the bunch. Aloe vera, moisturizing shea butter, and nourishing antioxidant vitamins E & C all join forces to deliver your skin intense hydration. For only $5.99, you get a huge tube of hydrating, thick "frosting" for your hands and body. I reserve this product for my hands and feet because of its  heavenly thickness. After happily applying the cream, my hands are lightly scented with a mouth-watering aroma of tropical paradise that lasts all day. If you're looking for a better scent for this time of year, I highly reccomend their Pomegranate Apple products. All products bring back memories of picking fresh, crisp apples on the orchard. All in all, Bath and Body Works needs to watch their back for Essence of Beauty's quality items.

More tropical smoothies...

I've noticed that I have been mentioning smoothies quite often here. :D

Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour
It's not edible, but it sure is amazing. I purchased it in the shade Ginger-ly, and I am just in love. Inside this lip gloss-like container with a unique cooling applicator is a gorgeous, shimmery cream shadow that refuses to budge all day. It's a perfect morning pick-me-up. So, instead of cooling my eyes of with ice cubes, I can just apply this (Not that I used ice cubes in the first place). Plus, instead of soaked lids, I'm getting gorgeous shimmery champagne eyelids! The only problem I have with it is that is is super sheer, and with just a little blending practically becomes invisible. The fact that it's called a "Smoothie" just makes me love it even more! Once I save up some more money, I'm going to immeditaly splurge on a few more shades: Pink Biloba, Cashew Later, and Bit O' Honey. Swatches and BETTER pictures come later :D

BE COOL AND COMMENT :D And scroll down/ check older post to find out how to create a gorgeous Fishtail Braid!
Excuse the horrible quality. My brother's Nintendo DS is the only camera available at the moment :P More pictures will be uploaded from a GOOD camera soon. :D


A Clueless Girl's Guide to Hair: The Fishtail Braid

Never have I been good at hair. I could't even make straight hair look good. Finally, I consulted with my stylist (hung out with my friend who is good at hair)and I was partially cured of this sickness. For the longest time, the art of the fishtail braid was a mystery to me. Until now. She taught me every last trick of the braid, and might I say it looked amazing at the end. It was rather thick at the top, and gradually got thinner and thinner. Do not fear, you are not chopped liver. I'm going to attempt to share the secrets to the making of the mysterious fishtail braid. My friends who lack skill in the hair department and I will finally spice up our style.

A Clueless Girl'S Guide to The Fishtail

1. Brush your hair.

2. Give your hair a deep side part to the left. Use a brush or your fingers.

3. Take all of your hair and put it over your right shoulder.

4.  Seperate your hair into two pieces. Make sure to keep these pieces seperated the whole entire time. Let's give both a name to make the rest easier. The one closest to your back and your right shoulder will be "Right" and the one closest to your front and your left shoulder will be "Left"
NOTE: Yes, in the picture "Right" is on the left, but when you're actually doing your own hair, the Right one will be on the right and vice versa.

5. Take out a 1/4 inch section of hair from the "Right" section and put it on the inside of the "Left" section. Then, take the same amount from the outside of the "Left" section and put it on the inside of the "Right" section.

6. Continue to do ths until you are all done with your hair. If you want a fishtail that gradually thins, use less and less hair when transferring. So, do a few 1/4 inch pieces for BOTH SIDES for 2-4 rounds (round= 1 transfer from Right, then 1 transfer from Left). Then use 1/5 inch pieces for about 2 rounds. Get gradually smaller and smaller until you finish.

7. If you want a more loose and messy braid, slightly pull the braid apart from the middle. Grab the middle and pull both ways.

Vanessa's hair is a perfect example of the end result of a Fishtail braid.

Hope this helped you! See you next time when I write another "Clueless Girl's Guide to Hair".

Clinique Bonus!

Wow, Haleigh took over all right. Haha. Anyways..

My birthday was Thursday, and I received tons of minis. :D One included those of  my Clinique Bonus. This one came with the most ingenious bag design I have every seen, an eyeshadow duo/ blusher, a moisturizing lotion, Moisture surge gel, Dramatically Different lipstick in tenderheart, Instant Lift for Brows, and High Impact Mascara. Look at that bag! Who knew random sketches of Clinique could be so beautiful? Speaking of beautiful, the products in it were amazing! I have never seen them toss in an "Instant Lift for Brows" in a bonus. I love this product. I received it in Soft Blond, and it's perfect! It looks natural, and the highlighter is wonderful. It's a good balance of creamy and powdery, and I now use it in my inner corners, too! I could talk forever about my love for the Moisture Surge Gel. The color is gorgeous, my skin is moisturized and plumped, and it feels sooo good. High Impact Mascara has always been a favorite. I'm glad it's in there. The shadows and blush are the perfect back-to-school combo. Both are subtle and pretty. The lipstick is slightly too dark, but I love it for any days I'm feeling the need to experiment at home. The lotion has been a staple in my skincare routine. With it, I can kiss flaking goodbye! Overall, I am very pleased with this "Bonus Round"! :D

Tropical Paradise....For Your Feet!

I almost died when I saw this. It looks like a crazy-skinny deodorant (yet it has no deodorizing properties whatsoever), though it acts like a huge lip balm for your... feet! I actually glanced at the ingredient list, and it was identical to that of the lip balm's. It is too bad it contained fragrance, because I would have been licking my feet uncontrollably (Just kidding, of course...). Mango Coconut is my favorite scent out of the Lemon Meringue, Key Lime Pie, and Orange Kreamsicle (yes, it was spelled with a K). It makes your feet smell as though you just accidentally stepped in someone's spilled tropical smoothie, preferably one with a small umbrella. :D This overpriced beeswax in stick form (Okay, it had a little more than beeswax in it...) costs a whopping $10.99 at a small boutique a.k.a. a toy store--a rather expensive toy store at that. They have this small little section selling an exclusive brand (Exclusive? Oh fancy...) with the name "El's" that is supposed to appeal to pre-teen girls and a small percentage of odd teenage ones such as myself. Luckily, my sister and I also paid this product a visit. That day, I suggested that she remember this as a birthday present idea for me (5 days until my birthday!). Hopefully, my feet and I will be able to enjoy the scent of tropical smoothies daily! :D

and a teensy bit haleigh.
mostly GABBY.

P.S. I have a passion for this picture. Murf! (Ooohh, first murf!) I just love it soo much. Opinions?

P.P.S. That murf was one of excitement. Just so you know. :D

A Bipolar Intro

GABBY: Guten Tag. Hola. Konichiwa. HELLO. You get the point :D

GABBY: Instead of rambling on about different ways to say hello, I am going to try to mesmerize you with my powers to bookmark this amazing blog :D

HALEIGH: Well, thank you Gabby for that amazing tidbit of information. (not really information...)

GABBY: Well, if you haven't noticed, there are going to be two people writing this blog. Sometimes I will write, and sometimes Haleigh will write. How do you tell the difference? There are two easy ways:

1. Haleigh often uses big words. I (Gabby) try, but usually don't.

2. I will sign my posts with "Gabby" and she will sign hers with "Haleigh". That's a real obvious one.

HALEIGH: Well, well, WELL. How many more times can we start a sentence with well?

Aaanyways....Time for the formal introduction.

BOTH OF US: Fabulous Fruit Face is a blog on which we review our favorite maquillage (That's a big word for cosmetics :D How fancy!) as well as the random musings of two teenage girls.

*Be warned, the word Murf (also spelled merf) will be used frequently to express many different emotions. Ex: She was being so mean today. Muuuurrrrfff! In this case, murf is our way of saying "Ugh!" in an angry context. If you dare to look it up, you will come across an unpleasant definition. Do not worry. We had no clue this was actually defined in the Urban Dictionary. If you stay with this blog for a while, you may find yourself understanding this odd word, and possibly using it in your everyday life. :D

(We don't like picking favorites :p)
