Apologies for my lack of posting over the last month. It seems as though this semester is going to be crazier than I expected, so I will probably be doing the majority of my posting during breaks. Like now!
While I'll be sure to update with an even larger "free stuff" post once I get home this week and pick up all of my free samples that have come since January, I have one exciting freebie to share right now!
I've been a member of BzzAgent for about ten months and I just got my second "real stuff" campaign this week! ("Real stuff" means that they actually sent me products in the mail, and didn't just base the campaign solely off of the internet.)
For those of you who don't know what BzzAgent is, it is one of the leading word-of-mouth marketing sites. Companies use BzzAgent to spread the word about their hot new products by sending samples out to consumers. It is then up to the Agent to learn about, use, and talk about the product they've received.
My new campaign is for Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step lip color.
This product is designed with microflex technology so that it will not become flaky even after you wear it for an entire day. The two-step process includes the lip color itself, which is the first coat, and a conditioning balm- the second coat- to add shine.
I am not one to use lip color on a daily basis, and even when I dress up I usually just wear lip gloss. However, I was willing to give this product a chance anyway.
I tried the Forever Chestnut shade, from the Naturals shade family. This lip color comes in four shade families- Reds, Pinks, Plums, and Naturals. I did not want something that was too bold or bright, so I opted to use the brown.
I found that if I applied it lightly, the lip color blended well with my natural lip tone. While you could tell that I was wearing lip color, it was not too loud of a color, which is exactly what I was going for. I also liked that my lips felt moisturized and did not ever feel dry through the course of the day like with other lip colors I have tried in the past.
Unfortunately, the color itself did not last for 24 hours. Right now my lips look pinker than usual, but not anywhere close to the brown shade I started with this morning. It's been just about 15 hours since I put the lip color on in the first place.
Overall, as someone who does not often wear lip color, I found this product to be a nice addition to my minimal makeup routine. It blended nicely with my natural skin and lip tone and gave me a subdue yet beautiful look for my day.

Also, I would highly recommend BzzAgent for anyone who loves trying new products for free! While you're not guaranteed to get campaigns, BzzAgent is working hard to improve their company and I've noticed recently that there are a lot more opportunities becoming available. Definitely check it out! =D
