Review of Maybeline 24-Hour 2 Step Color

As a Bzz Agent I was given the opportunity to try out the new Maybelline SuperStay 24™ 2-Step Lipcolor.

I have tried other lip colors that claimed to last all day, but none that made a 24 hour claim. I have tested it out a few times now, and have to say, I was impressed with how well it lasted! Admittedly, it did not last 24 hours for me, but I did not have to reapply during the day when I put is on early in the morning. In fact I put it on at 5 am the day I had my baby, and that lasted through the labor and beyond. In pictures taken 12-14 hours (and a childbirth) later, I still had lip color on. I thought it was pretty impressive! Look at this picture of me after my baby was born:

That is what it looked like with no reapplications after hours of labor and delivery! Pretty impressive, right?!

I wanted to also comment on the color selection. There are a lot of colors available and they are really nice vibrant colors. I have 4 different shades and liked them all, but was able to find an absolute favorite in the Forever Chestnut! Fabulous color and will replace my longstanding favorite I have been using!

Overall, I really like the product, though it did not last 24 hours on my lips. It DID last through a lot though!! There are 30 fantastic choices of colors to choose from-something for everyone! I was very happy with the product.

Great Mothers Day Deal: Snapily Amimated Cards review and DEAL

Well, I am always on the look out for super cute and high quality photo products, so I was really excited to get the chance to learn about and review these great Animated Printed gifts from I knew of before this, but did not realize all the products they have: photo cards, notebooks, scrapbook pages, business cards, greeting cards, and bookmarks.

As I said I was able to get a free personalized card from to review. Just to let you know, it was super easy to make and order this card (which is the first thing I really liked about this product). In fact, I had my lap top at the hospital with me when I had my baby 2 weeks ago. The morning after he was born, I uploaded a couple pics of him with the family, and I made the card from the hospital that morning. It was seriously easy and quick to do.

The second thing I loved was that it arrived at my house in just a few days. It was really quick!

Initially I was not sure what an animated card would be, but it is one of those cards where you have 2 pictures that change back and forth depending on how you hold the card. It may not make sense for me to explain it, so check out this flash preview here:

Sweet, right?! So, I used the 2 following pictures:

The third thing that really impressed me about these cards was the quality. This is a thick, sturdy card that is not going to fall apart. It is really nice! It is such a nice thing to have that I selfishly decided to keep it for myself rather than give it to one of the grandmas...I might have to buy a couple more cards for them!

Luckily, there is a SWEET deals I can use to get their cards, and YOU can get the same deal!! Right now is offering great coupon's to get your mother (or loved ones) these great Animated or 3-D cards. They are full value coupons to for up to 50% off! Half price for great products like the Animated cards and the 3-D Cards! How fantastic is that for the upcoming Mother's Day?! Seriously! Stop by here to get your deal and then start making your own cards at!!
